The Inconvenience of Technology

Last month I started making and preparing lessons for our English Summer Workshop at the center. I kept all my files and records inside the computer. I recorded all the things needed for the workshop such as the lessons for levels 1 and 2, crafts to be done by the students, games, and other English activities.

I was shocked last week when I can’t open our computer then we asked our manager if we can send it to the shop for check up. It was found out that it has a lot of viruses and the files can’t be saved anymore. Sometimes, computers and other technology are helpful to many users but at times it gives stress and hard times.

That happens to me today. When I knew that all the files were lost I felt bad. Everything was lost in the computers, all the files were deleted because it can’t be fixed anymore and the files cannot be retrieved. I started doing it again for the second time. It’s a waste of time and effort but anyway, I’ve learned a lesson not to use that computer anymore.

AJ’s 6th Birthday

Life is a gift from God. And for me, a birthday is something to be treasured. Today, our son AJ turns 6. He was so excited a week past and naming all his friends expecting them to come and surprise him. I was asking him if we will just eat outside just like McDonald’s or other known places in Hatyai but still insisting that he wanted his friends to come and visit him on his birthday.

When he woke up this morning, he was so happy telling and asking me just to make sure, “Mama, today is my birthday? And he continues; “Look at my face, and my muscles too, it’s big now”. He’s so excited to be a man, oh boy! He’s just 6, lol!

Anyway, our friends came especially our neighbors before and other friends. AJ was so excited seeing their special friends. And of course, as a child, having gifts make him happy, was so happy with a sweet smile receiving gifts from friends.
