I'm really happy to have this out of the way finally and be a little farther down the path of actually making this a quasi lucrative career and not just a hobby. truth be told, the whole endeavor has been pretty expensive but its a one off sort of thing and i wont have to put up that sort of money again....now i can just start making some real money which is a good thing. I think the real question that should be asked is how many of you ever envisioned me as a teacher? yes i know its only scuba diving and not exactly teaching molecular gentetics at university but still......me.....teaching? what the fuck has this world come to? next thing you know you will see the pope turning hasidic (which is just a fantastic mental picture).
so the IE is finished and i just have to wait a couple of days for the paperwork to go through before i can officially begin teaching courses. dont want to break those standards and practices that i learned so much about so i'm just going to chill out for a few days and pick up a few specialty instructor courses to make myself more hireable. things in khao lak are starting to pick up finally and the dive shops are almost all open and ready for business. when it is the slow season in khao lak it is the SLOW SEASON, with almost all the stores shuttered for 6 months at a time....its like an old west town but without the gunfights.
well I truly hope if any of you are ever interested in getting certified in diving you will come and pay me a visit because shit, we're almost family right (for those of you who are my family you should just come and visit me on general priciples you lazy bastards :) )
