When Will I Sleep Again: My Workaway for a Female Monk (Phikkuni)

My friend Kiva and I spent our first three weeks in Thailand working for a Phikkuni with several other volunteers from all over the place. I’ve decided to use this post to give the lo-down on the chores we had to do for her and, naturally, I will be using a Tangled When Will My Life Begin format! I will be writing a proper story based on Tangled soon, involving Rapunzel travelling without Eugene… I’ve been having Long Distance Relationship woes and what better way to deal with them than through my favourite Disney movie? For now, a light-hearted sing-song.
