I’m leaving Facebook for good.

Notifications, notifications, and notifications everywhere. Not only that, it is useless, a waste of time, and it really doesn’t give me any benefits in my life.

My purpose on Facebook is to share stories about my life but I don’t think Facebook is very suitable for that purpose.

Also, I never felt safe using Facebook because I feel like people could find out your identity and know where you live.

But if you know how to use Facebook the right way it might become a powerful tool, for example, merchants sell clothes and receive a lot of income.

But I’ve decided that I’ll be on Twitter from now on here: https://twitter.com/DanDrak87175557

And leaving Facebook forever because it’s useless for me.

Thank you for reading.

 

Are Desktop Computers Becoming Obsolete?

The desktop won’t die out for several reasons:

1. It’s becoming the creation tool: particularly for businesses but also for the new breed of home or independent business or artist. People who make things still rely on PCs, be they laptops or desktops, to do so. Graphic design, music, art — all on PCs. Sure, you can do some of this on tablets, but the interface doesn’t support that level of control.

Developers do their work on PCs. I don’t see this changing significantly. Development requires powerful devices — multicore processors, lots of RAM, and copious storage. Developers need giant display screens.

2. Bigger screen and more power: for people who play games on PC’s, a gaming laptop is good, but the issue with gaming laptops is that they run out of battery power quickly due to power the immense power of the CPU’s and GPU’s power requirements, the battery last around 3–4 hours if you’re playing games that need powerful CPUs.

3. you can have a big giant monitor in front of your face if you don’t have a tv and do work, like making a game.

So here’s my opinion: PCs will be with us for many many years to come. But their nature will change so that they’re no longer the only way people consume or create. Marketers need to understand this multi-device future to understand the demands on software developers to support multiple devices. This suggests both market opportunities (help them solve their problems) and a way to market to address customer needs and concerns.

Some Short Facts about Thailand

1200px-Flag_of_Thailand.svg

Thailand and the United States are 2 very different places. Culture, Language, and way of living are very different. I have lived in Thailand for 12 years and only moved to the United States for 5 months because the education is not good enough for me.

Culture:

Thai culture is deeply influenced by religion. With around 95% of the country being Buddhist, the belief system and values of Buddhism play a huge role in day-to-day life. Throughout the country, the most important values that Thai people hold to are respect, self-control, and a non-confrontational attitude.

Language:

Thai is the sole official and national language of Thailand and the first language of the Central Thai people and the vast majority of Thai of Chinese origin. It is a tonal and analytic language. It is a difficult language to learn.

Schools:

Education in Thailand mandates nine years of “basic education” (six years of elementary school and three years of lower secondary school). Education at public schools is free until grade 9. Children are enrolled in elementary school from the age of six and attend for six years, Prathom 1 to Prathom 6.

Expense:

I love traveling Thailand because it’s cheap and backpacking around Thailand usually costs $20–35 USD per day, depending on how much alcohol you consume and how many days you spend on the islands, where costs are higher.

First Day in a Foreign School

*These are some of my opinions and comments and I am not insulting anything/anyone

School Website: http://www.nhcs.net/noble/


This is the first American school that I’ve been in and I would like to tell my experience to others. I hope you are looking forward to this and I tried to take pictures but it’s hard because there is a rule that you cannot take pictures.

This is Noble Middle School, one of the public schools in Wilmington North Calorina. This school has a very strict policy about bullying, inappropriate content, and profanity. And the school mascot is an eagle.

Waiting for the school bus

I got into the school in the middle of the semester which is bad because everyone has friends except me. But don’t worry, I’m used to it. At least, I made a couple of friends over there.

I was struggling so much on my first day. It was such a horrible nightmare. I was so scared that I had to ask the school counselor so many questions so many times. The system is very different from Thailand obviously because Thailand schools had no lockers and you do not need to change classes most of the time.

Many of my classmates were afraid to talk to me because they do not know who I am and they didn’t even realize I could speak English. One thing that I remembered is a group of 4 girls gave me a salad in a cup, which is very nice of them because they paid for it. They handed me the salad and then they ran away. I was so scared that I sat there looking at the salad like a mindless person, I threw it away and ran away. But don’t worry, I gave them a quarter and they still talk to me until now.

The school’s yard

To go to another class, you’ll need to go to the room with the right number. But I couldn’t find the room with that number so I walked around the school like 3 times (and I was terrified) until I found the counselor and she guided me to the correct class.

And that is the first day in an American School and I didn’t study at all (lol).

I remembered myself trying to open a locker. It is hard because I’ve never used a locker before so I had to ask the school counselor many times, but now I know how to use lockers, I just had to practice.


This school is not the “competitive” type which means the students that are behind can catch up easily, but the smarter students (not being narcissistic but like me) they can get bored easily. I know I know, my grades are quite low right now, but I can get them up easily if I stop slacking off.

One thing that is good about this school is that it has no bullies. Not a single bully. This school had only a couple fist fights before but that was a very long time ago.

This is a good school for students who are behind and are sensitive to bullying.

The important thing to take in that things might not be scary as you think and thank you to the students who accepted me and tried to help me.

And that is my first day in a foreign school.

A New Year a New Life

It is now 2019 which is the starting of a new year and a new life for everyone and tomorrow I’ll be going right to school. And it’s very scary for me because I have no idea what an American School looks like, and I hope my school will go well for me.

But let’s think about the moments that we had in the last year. Leave the bad vibes and only think about the great moments that all of us had.

Alright! Have a nice day and once I settle down in school, I will make more posts.

Peace,

Thailand to America… A long Journey

I’ve finally got a new home in the USA and North Calorina is a great place to live! Flying from Thailand to America was a very long and tiring journey. My family still haven’t sold our house and so half of the family’s money is over there. And we’re living poor here, but it’s still fun.

We had to fly from my city to Bangkok. Then Bangkok to Hongkong, and Hongkong to Washington D.C. This whole journey took around a week to be in North Calorina. Also, I hate jetlag haha!

Enjoy these photos!

I’m moving to the United States in one week…

Hi guys.

I’m sorry that I left this blog for too long and the reason why I didn’t make any posts is because nothing interesting is happening in my life in these couple months.

Nothing much really happened in these months. I grew up a little and I just have a couple of friends on the internet.

And in one week I’ll be moving into the United States and I still haven’t sold my house yet (I do not understand why I can’t sell my house, I think it’s a beautiful house and the price is cheap). And now I’m scared that my family doesn’t have enough money to live in the United States.

But, I’ll be back to make more posts soon.

I hope you guys are doing fine.

And see you later!
