FINALLY!!!...I'm finished my CELTA. To be honest, it was nowhere near as hard as I'd expected, it was just a lot of work. I only got a pass, because I realized early on I would really have to work hard to get a B or an A, but I could get a pass with a minimum of effort. The people on my course were pretty cool for the most part, except for the fat, balding, old American pedo who got booted from the course for downloading child porn on the school computers...what a freak! Also, in a strange twist of fate, I ended up studying with a girl who worked at my old, crappy school in Busan.
With the courseload, and the fact that the school was way out in the middle of nowhere, I only got to do one night of partying a week, but I generally made up for it as I had some pretty mad nights in Chiang Mai. On Friday, we all finished the course and headed into town together for a night of partying, which ended up with a few of us on a mission to get the 18 year old guy on our course laid for the first time...mission accomplished.
Anyways, I'm going to stay in Chiang Mai until after Songkran, the Thai New Years festival which is basically just a massive drunken waterfight, then I'm probably going to head up to Pai and Mae Hong Son for some fun and trekking.
