One year ago today I was sitting on Korean Airlines flight 7850 headed from Atlanta to Seoul. August 17, 2018. I was 23 years old, had a broken foot, and was halfway into my one-way journey to Bangkok. It wasn’t until a couple hours into this flight that it all really hit me. It wasn’t until this flight that I really broke down. Oh, how I want to hug last-year Brooke. If she could see me now!
A reflection of personal growth and settling in after a semester teaching in Thailand.
A word of celebration for foreign language education and bilingualism, the difficulty of English, and patience toward language learners.
For anyone who is considering taking that leap….
Thailand doesn’t give you what you want, it gives you what you need.
