Daily Prompt: I Walk the Line

Have you got a code you live by? What are the principles or set of values you actively apply in your life? Krista

Krista has asked us the above question on today’s Daily Prompt Topic. I think my code of conduct mainly comes from my parents and my aunt mixed with those lines that I’ve read on a lot of books.

I believe in fair treatment. Respect other people’s rights. Not insulting people on their belief, occupation, social status, educational background, etc. I know that it’s easy to say these beautiful words about my belief, but it’s not easy to act like that all the time. However, I try hard to do so. Anyway, I realize that I think I have no regard for someone who unkindly acts toward other people. If you act like that to other people, how can I respect your opinions on anything?

I always attempt to follow the laws and rules. Yep, I was once a good student. I rarely skipped the classes. Never cheat on my exams. Like never!. I don’t like cheating. I don’t want to lie. If I have to lie, I choose to not talk about it. Nevertheless, as I’ve grown up into the social world. I sometimes find that the truth can outcast you from a group. So I decide to stay quiet on some topics. As living in my country, you can’t say everything you think. Your words can come back to bite you or put you in a miserable place. Freedom of speech isn’t a thing in this country no matter what some of my friends believe that they have.They think they have the freedom because they talk about things that social standard accepts it.

I’m also one of those people who believe in the global warming. For me, you can say that I’m kind of obsessed with using my bag instead of plastic bags whenever I have a chance to do so. In addition, I have been known in my work department that I collect used paper and plastic bottles which my dad will give them to people living nearby so they can sell them to recycling shops. It’s like we help reduce garbage and some people can get money for that.

wonder-next-earth-day-ecard-someecardsTo be honest, I have more to tell. But I think I will stop right here as one thing I’ve tried to walk the line is to sleep for 6-8 hours. Finish this post and I will go to bed soon.

Good Night (10:06 PM my time) …

 

Daily Prompt: I Believe

I believe that death is a part of our live. But I don’t believe that anyone has rights to take our life away.

I believe that true love does exists. But I don’t believe it will happen to me.

I believe that we should always look for a goodness in human beings. But I don’t believe that we should ignore the cruelty among us.

For today’s prompt, tell us three things that you believe in your heart to be true. Tell us three things you believe in your heart to be false.

Daily Prompt: Fast Forward

If I could fast forward my life to the future, I would go to next year when my long-time work project will finish and I will be able to take long vacation to travel abroad. I wish to go to New Zealand:

Or I might visit my friend who is living in Virginia, and we can drive to NYC.

Or if I can’t take 2-weeks vacation, I may choose Tokyo instead.

Only I can take the time machine to reach that time.

Daily Prompt: Beyond the Pale

When was the last time you did something completely new and out of your element? How was it? Will you do it again?

To be honest, I don’t like taking any thrilling rides in amusement parks. However, I told myself that I need to step out of my comfort zone and do it. That was the time I went to Dream World (the amusement park near Bangkok, Thailand) on 28 Dec 2013.

I decided that I would take every exciting rides even though I was afraid of the height and I didn’t want my heart beat too fast. Anyway, I challenged myself to take 4 out of 6 thrilling rides. It was kind of exhilarating to know that I wasn’t afraid as much as I thought. I also handled the excitement quite better that I expected from myself. There was a specific ride that I didn’t want to take again which was Viking because it made me feel like falling from high building. Apart from that, I think I will be alright if I get other chances to do it again. Moreover, I want to take other rides that I refused to go in because of a fear of height. Better try them than regret what I’ve missed.

Daily Prompt: Express Yourself

“I don’t know how to say”

“What can I say?”

Daily Prompt has asked about a time I couldn’t quite get my words to explain what I wanted to say. As some of you might know that I started this blog for English language writing practice since English isn’t my 1st language. My native language is Thai. I still have hard times to express my thoughts when writing something for my blog even though I’ve published 364 posts so far. And now I am writing the 365th post for this blog.

I began learning English language since I was in the 1st year in primary school, and I’ve studied this language until the sophomore year in University.  I also took extra English courses during my high school years.  My 1st job required me to contact Japanese, Singaporean, and Chinese so I needed to use English for communication mainly in e-mails. I left my 1st job for 6-months ESL (English as a second language) course in Tasmania, Australia. Then I worked for a small company which I rarely used English language so I’ve moved to the 3rd job. I’m currently working in a multinational company where I will have chances to communicate with my colleagues from all over the world in English language.

I could say that I love learning English and I really want to be good at this. However, I believe I still struggle with English conversations especially via telephone. Sometimes, I can’t find English vocabularies to explain what I think. I knew that I don’t have to know the exact English words for Thai words when I am trying to convey what I want to say because I can try to speak longer to describe something that should be easily represented by one English word if I could know.

So when I was asked by Daily Prompt about the time I face the difficulty of expression, my answer would be the time I have to speak/write in English language for reaching what I truly mean. Just like this time, the 365th post of this blog.

Prompt Post

I’ve promised myself to publish a single post everyday when I started this blog, and that was the time I didn’t know what WordPress community could provide me with. As I published post by post, I began to learn what I could get from this community especially the challenges which have stimulated the idea for my posts. I believe that there was one challenge that made me nervous before publishing. That challenge was Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique as I chose to post my own photo. I realized that I’ve already shown my face on homepage however that photo was showing the right-side of me. But, the photo in the mentioned post was face in front.

Besides that post, I think there were two more posts which raised my uneasiness before posting. Yet, they helped release me from restless mind because they talked about my personal past experiences which I wasn’t proud of but I think I needed to face it before moving on.  The first post was a letter to a stranger who was one part of reasons I initiated this blog. The latter was the post I wrote about an ex. I still felt a pang in my heart while I was writing that post. Not because I missed him, but I felt a bit ashamed of myself for letting my personality to be altered that much for the sake of having someone in my life.

I believe that this blog has assisted me to grow up even though I have been an adult for quite a while. This blog community also let me learn from others. And I’m grateful for that.

This post is an entry for PPP-Challenge as well.

 

Daily Prompt: Honorific

I believe that she has been already admired from those all around the world who heard of her courageous story. I’d also like to mention her here ‘Malala Yousafzai‘. I felt very sorry for her when I firstly knew her from her tragic news. I think she is very brave to speak up for her belief without fear. And when the news said she was shot in the head, admittedly I didn’t think she could survive. But, it is a relieved news that she does survive and live to voice what she honors. I truly respect what she’s done and gone through. I don’t know whether there will be any change in her country and others from now on. However, the world can hear what’s going on, and the world can’t forget because she chooses not to be in silence.

Daily Prompt: Bloggers, Unplugged

My job requires me to work with computer entire day and when I come back home, I still use my laptop/iPad to get the updated news on my Facebook friends and update this WordPress blog.

When I started this blog, I didn’t think that I would develop an addiction to this WordPress community. However, I spend a lot of times here as I’ve promised myself that I will publish post everyday for a year since the 1st date. In the beginning of this blog, I tended to visit my blog in the morning, during the day, in the evening and before bedtime. Actually, it wasn’t only my blog that I’d like to drop by, but I also wanted to visit my fellow bloggers’ updated posts because I’d like to touch their worlds via writing or photography.

I didn’t think I needed to completely unplug myself from this blog as I think I wanted to spend my free time reading and writing here. Nevertheless, my addiction has lessened as the time passed by, and I think it dropped to a normal state as I also had other things to do such as reading books, watching series, painting and piano practice, and etc. I therefore changed my schedule to update my post at nights and read fellow bloggers’ updated feed in the morning.

And because I mainly use my laptop for the update on WordPress and Facebook, I believe that I’ve arranged appropriate amount of time in this connected world. And I don’t think it would be anything hard to leave this virtual world and go to the imaginative world of books or series instead because they are my favourite leisure too.

I am a robot.
I don’t want to be angry at nonsense things.
I need to control myself.
I don’t want to let emotion defeat my logical thinking.
