Any other mid-20's about?!

Hi everyone, I'm Jade from the UK, just found a teaching job in Korat and looking to broaden my social circle a little. Feel free to get intouch :)

Hi Jade, welcome to the forum!

23 years ago I was mid 30s and had a teaching job in Korat. I think now there are only a few others around getting nearer to your situation. If you ever read Stickman's evaluation of Korat: There are only alcoholics and teachers as farangs in Korat. Welcome to the second group! ;D

 :cheers

Welcome, Jade.

There are some teachers in their thirties around, I think. Out here in Pak Thong Chai we recently had at least three teachers in your age group until recently but, when the term ended they moved on to other countries.

Perhaps as you settle into your job you will find some suitable friends.

Korat town has some retired people who aren't alcoholics and you may find that a few are younger than their years.

Good luck and I hope you find something in Korat town to your liking.

Take it as a challenge, Jade! Though I was ten years older than you are now, when I came to Korat, about every other farang I saw seemed twice my age and from another generation at first sight. Some of them turned out quite different and far more open and "up to date" once the ice was broken.

By age I felt closer to my Thai students, but by cultural background those "octogenarians" were closer. It's a good experience to find yourself, if you're in between those two extremes.

Hi jade welcome
Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
