Think I can pull it off?
>>
>>949756
Yes go now
>>
Do it. Worse that would happen is you end up in the same place you are now.
>>
>>949756
You dont have a degree? Are you white? Get a tefl certificate and have enough dosh to survive a month with no pay so at least 1k that should be enough if you know how to spend it i would post some ressources but im in class.

OP here >>949812
I can always come back to America and join the Military
>>949815
>949815
I plan to get a job over here and get enough to last a while, I was thinking around 30k to sustain a long time but finding a job here is proving to be difficult, I have a friend in thailand whos gonna help me out a lot but anything helps

You demonstrate an amazing lack of imagination.
>>
>>949756
>Think I can pull it off?
Honestly, no.

Go back to school, you're only 18, too early to drop out.
>>

>I can always come back to America and join the Military
Good chance you can't, and don't bother if you can

xxoo,

>>949952
I dropped out when I was 16,. too late for that now

>>949983
>Good chance you cant

How so?
>>
>>949987
Not that guy, but it's a lot harder to get in with a ged these days, but if you have at least 15 college credits (100 level or higher) they can use it as equivalent to a high school diploma, if you completed at least the 10th grade.
>>
>>949989
I went to an airforce recruiter and they said all I needed was the right amount of college credits, I have 21 credits in CJ so im good there
>>
>>949993
That's all well and good, but retention and recruitment standards /have/ gone up. I wasn't referencing your GED earlier.

But I say again: don't bother with the military and ask /k/ why if you don't believe me.
>>
>>950031
Im actually trying to stay away from the Military as much as possible. Sadly being a college dropout and high-school dropout im kind of out of options other than fleeing the country and teaching english in places where there's high demands and less requirements
>>
>>949756

haha

I can't handle living in a first world country so I'm going to move to the other side of world and hope the fact that I'm a poorly educated English speaker nets me money.

kek, good luck
>>
>>950032
That you think "hurr durr I'll just teach english in Asia" despite being a drop out only reinforces how much of a clueless loser you are. Sorry, but that's the truth. I am highly skeptical that you have the ability or knowledge to teach anyone any thing. Go back to school, there are no easy ways out faggot.

Your experience as a dropout teaching English in Thailand?

Or your experience as an anonymous shitposter in the Internet?
>>
Only move somewhere to teach English if you actually have a genuine interest in exploring a new culture, don't do it because you're 18 and seem to know everything about what is best for you.
>>
>>950146
Oh dont get me wrong I do have much interest in the culture, this isnt just some spontaneous "Im gonna teach cause money" Ideal.
>>
>>950157 That claim stretches my credulity, given your robust response to an interlocutor here >>950139

As a proper English teacher (fuck the glorified babysitters in Asia). OP can try her luck if she wants, but I'm saying (despite your circle-jerking tumblr world trying to pat you on the back), that she's bound for failure.
>>
>>950189
Well do you have any advice so I can possibly not crash and burn? Also I have a dick, not much of a dick, but a dick none the less
>>
don't do it OP. dropout shitters that come to teach esl in Asia are by and large the worst people i have ever met, and you will only be contributing to it. if youre going to be a fuckup, be a fuckup in the privacy of your own home

I wish I knew this before I was half way through my degree
>>
>>949756
Good luck. I will say only that anyplace in Thailand that will hire a teacher without a degree will not be a legitimate job, so you won't have access to the appropriate paperwork for a work permit or long-term visa. For Most ESOL jobs in Thailand, a degree has been a prerequisite for a long time now. That's not to say you won't find work-I know several people who subsist mostly on private tutoring jobs, which are all cash, all under the table, and there are more than a few sleazy night schools--but it won't ultimately be legal (so you'll only be able to stay a maximum of six months) and you'll run some risk of being deported. Oh well, could be an adventure anyhow.
