Both your friends that borrow or lend your money are not really good to you

Image
Most people experience this. We borrow money from our friend; we lend money to our friend. Me too. The friends that we borrow or lend money to are people that we trust. We have been friends for many years, right? Though we have known each other for a long time, still we know only their faces, but not their minds. Based on my own experience, whether they borrow money or lend money, they have the same bad will.   They borrow money to drag us down Friendship for more than ten years, sometimes, it's a fake. Face to face, they are so good to us, they care about us, they protect us, but in their mind, they are jealous of us; they wait for a chance to attack us. In general, because we have been friends for many years, we trust them, and we believe that they are good to us truly, they are our true friends, we never have bad thoughts towards them.  When they come to borrow money, we give them without consideration. We believe that they won't bother us if they have a way. Also we believ

What I do to make people who can read and can't read read my writing

T here was one day LinkedIn notified me of the article of a business woman.  I didn't know her until I saw her last name, I checked then I realized she is the sister of Facebook, now Meta's owner.  I followed her but later on I wondered why I became her followers - because I liked, because I wanted to use her to get noticed, or because she gave me inspiration. Neither of them. I decided to unfollow her; I will wait for the day I have a sincere and clear goal to follow her, then I will follow her. Well, before I clicked unfollow, I was inspired by one thing. She had an article and at the bottom there was a video link. As I clicked it, it linked me to a video but it was not new - it was her voice reading that article. During the early days of the pandemic, the schools were closed and studied online. One of my nephews was at kindergarten and because of that, he couldn't read or write.  When I visited him, he liked me to read a book for him. I found he liked readin

When I am feeling down, I remind history of JP automobile

Image
People usually laugh when they see my site domain.   Even so, I love this name. I choose this name because I want to make myself remember that I have to live a happy life. However, it does not mean I don't have sad days. In a day, in a week, in a month, in a year, I have both sad and happy times. When I am sad, I usually remember a story that my Japanese friend told. It is about the history of a Japanese automobile. At that time, German cars of Germany were well-known. JP has just started. Invested companies were down and some bankrupted. One day, a JP car company had a meeting. Owner of the company and senior staff were invited to share opinions to make the company grow. Then a senior staff member advised that JP was famous in producing machines, so JP should cooperate with German car companies by providing machine making service to them. After hearing that, the head of the meeting asked, "How many years does a German car take to get success like today?" The senior staff

One difficulty the online business using Facebook page meets

Image
Online business doesn't always go smoothly, it has problems like business on the land. Such as my business. I sell PDF and Ms word books on a Facebook page. Mostly I use a cell phone to operate my shop. With the old platform, I and customers could contact each other fast.  When Facebook changed to Meta and changed its platform, I could not communicate with my customers - especially when they messaged or commented to buy my product, I didn't receive it until half a day later. So I have to use the Meta business app to run my store. However, it doesn't help my business to be better. The app goes down everyday; I have to reinstall it once every two days or I will lose my customers. I cannot choose though it gives me a hard and unhappy time - because Cambodians are fans of Facebook. It's a real example to prove that doing business is not easy and being an online entrepreneur, especially a start-upers, isn't always successful - we need time.

A low tech like me.. well.. to learn one thing related to technological devices, I spend one or two years. Though, I never give up. I learn and learn and I keep learning... Like this article of mine shows about how to screenshot on a laptop. Young and IT people will find it boring and it is not new, but for people that do not know about technology, like me, it is very good. To do a screenshot image on the laptop, there are two ways. 1. Use keyboard if your laptop is new model This technique, my colleague told me. It is easy. Press Window Key and hold it. Then press prt sc sysrq . In one second, it will give a flash that you can notice on the laptop screen. Screenshot images mostly go to Pictures folder. 2.

Then go to the above right side and click on Open Application Menu . After, search fo

My little laziness made me become a green online entrepreneur

Image
I resigned from work and decided to not get employed anymore after meeting a lot of broken heart events.   Then the pandemic arrived. I stayed at home and made videos for YouTube. At that time YouTube closed advertisements if the channel was from Cambodia, so my channel got very little revenue. I had to live depending on my parents' money. My sister saw I was not happy, so she gave me a small pot of cactus. I put it at the window. One day my mother got Cambodian sweetsops. I took one to stand by the bin eating it because it was easy for me - to eat then throwing the seed into the bin. When the last piece remained, I thought it didn't have any seeds, so I walked towards the window and put the piece into my mouth. Immediately I touched the seed. I took it out. I was too lazy to go back to the bin, so I inserted it into the pot of cactus that was at the window. I didn't notice and remember anything about it. I watered the cactus. About two weeks later, I saw a sprout coming ou

Raising a child, don't be afraid to let them meet hard times

I have seen four boys since they were young until they became adults. They have different parents. When the boys were young, their parents didn't allow them to meet any difficulty. Then families of two boys fell, they even lost houses. Because of that, their parents had to allow the boys to struggle in life since they were not yet eighteen. Talking about the other two boys. Their families had a hard time too, but their parents didn't allow them to do any work; they always kept them on the throne. When the four became adults, they gained different results. The two boys who worked since young had everything from their own hands: house, career, car and money. Moreover, they were mature, knowledgeable and humble. As for the two happy boys, they had the same things but their things were from their parents, all of them. They were very rude, liked to show off, drunk every night, used violence in the house etc. When they got money, they spent on clothes, phones, drinking, ca
