“Loneliness can affect mental health such as stress and depression.
In order to cope with loneliness, arranging the activities to do together is one of the best ways.”
t has been over a month and a half since “Students’ Things” the first edition was released. Therefore, first of all, on behalf
of the editorial team, I would like to express my sincerest gratitude towards all of you for making the magazine a big success. Without you readers, we would not have reached where we currently are. The steps might be small but it is progress. Thank you.
February is the month of love and I am certain that it has been a lovely month for most if not for all. Love has many aspects. Self-love, relationship, family, love towards your favorites, and many more. Thus, in this edition, we are also here to celebrate the end of this month of love with different aspects of love through our articles. The editorial team has put in all our efforts to gather up different topics of your interest and has also increased the level of students’ participation in our magazine. It is, therefore, my pleasure to welcome you into this magazine.
Before I leave, I hope that you have enjoyed this month. The world as we know it is facing a very difficult time. But remember that you are never alone. In case you ever feel lonely, reach out to us, “Students’ Things” will always be there for you. Last but not the least, love yourself.
“You might be hurt by many different things. You might feel hurt for not having a relationship. You might feel like the waves keep hitting you as it would never stop. But do not give up on yourself, keep loving yourself.”
Paramet Sethawanich Editor-in-chief And the Editorial Team
How was your internship at King Power?
“I was in Burberry Shop. So, I was in that shop as a salesperson. It was going to be our second internship and we prepared everything,
the English language and something like that. But then once
we get into that branch, we had to speak Chinese because it turns out most Burberry customers are Chinese. I still remember
I will fold some of the paper in my pocket and when there were no
customers, I will take the paper out and learn some Chinese.”
Any suggestions that you might have for the students who are about to intern and for the students who are
your listener in general?
“For 7-11, you have to take enough sleep because working at 7-11 is quite tough for those who never work there before. The suggestion is to train your body
and your strength not only your brain because the task is not that hard. Make a lifelong friendship. If I could go back, I will practice more about presentation
skills like make the PowerPoint more beautiful. And the second is to talk more to other people. Such as the teacher and liberate their connection and hard skill are also
important. Find 1 hard skill that unique for you. When going to the workplace you have to provide some value for them. If we are minimum don’t take extra work or something.
You might not compete with others. Anything on your interest and doesn’t forget to study outside of the school. The book I would recommend is Rich Dad Poor Dad. They have many books in series. I recommend reading the book outside. Step out of your comfort
zone. Because the successful person read a lot of books.”

Do you have any techniques to be a good salesperson?
“I think one of the most important is to find the right customers. Which
is till now I’m still finding the right target. Because now even though I have
tons of emails I have to send to, but those people may not be interested in our product. So, what I’m trying to say is that finding the right people first is quite
important because if they already have some need then it would be easy for us to tackle.”
What have you learned most at PIM and in your university life?
“I’ve learned that presentation skill is quite important and also corroboration skill and don’t take it for granted and also you should use more leverage from
others like for example you are a student and there are many services for students but most of the students don’t really use it for example library. Some services
provided to students for free. Once I realize that most of my first and second year, I spend most of my time at the library. In my point is that there are still
many things that you can earn from the example you can leverage teacher skills or experience like talk to them more or ask for their suggestion. You have many clubs to join and get some opportunity. Ask for more help and
opportunity. Don’t take it for granted. You can read the book in the library. When you go to the library do not do only things in the class.
One skill is you have to learn fast and willing to help others.”

Valentine’s Day or Saint Valen- tine’s Day is annually celebrated on February 14th. This annual festival
is celebrated to show romantic love, friendship and affections to their part- ner as well as their families. Usually,
people celebrate this day by sending messages of love or giving flowers to their partner, friends and family mem- bers. Some people even use this day to propose to their partner as well.
Love is the absence of judgeme”nt. Dalai Lama XIV
Valentine’s Day is named after Saint Valentine who is a Catholic priest. There are several stories going around about who Saint Valentine is. But the most popular one is that he was a priest from Rome in the 3rd century AD. During that time, Roman empire was ruled by Emperor Claudis
II. In his reign, he believed that married men are bad soldiers. Therefore, he banned marriage. However, Valentine felt this was absurd and unfair, he then started to break the rule by arranging the marriage secretly. Unfortunately, the secret won’t last long, he was found out. He was thrown in jail and sentenced to death on 14th February. While living in jail, he fell in love with the jailer’s daugh- ter. Before death, he sent his lover a love letter signed “from your Valentine”.
Valentine’s Day is believed to have orig- inated from a Roman festival called Lupercalia in the middle of February which counts as the start of the spring- time. During this time, boys would draw names of girls from a box and then they become a boyfriend or girlfriend or even married to each other. Later on, the church makes this festival to be- come a Christian celebration and a day to remember Saint Valentine as well.
Working from home and physical distancing, this new normal is reducing the chance of being infected.
However, it is increasing social isolation in humanity. Therefore, during the Covid-19 pandemic, 58.1% of people felt somewhat or much lonelier than before (+ 181%) as stated in Women’s Health Interactive. This loneliness can affect mental health such as stress and depression. In order to cope with loneliness, arranging the activities to do together is one of the best ways.
The InterClub staff have announced the 2 clubs, which are public speaking and Eng hub. Using Zoom to have effective meetings and Line application as communication tools to create a small society with the same interests.
For the Public speaking club, the team has created 2 contents consisting of pitching ideas and public speaking. Both of these contents tend to enhance joiners’ skills of speaking in the real world. Pitching is to persuade audiences or investors and public speaking is to develop the confidence to speak up. The club officially had the first meeting last February 25. It allowed participants to pitch the innovative project in 3 minutes and let others give comments and their own point of view via the “Burger” model, comments, suggestions, then again compliments. It is a fun way to express creativity and confidence.
And the 2nd club that we have is English Hub. This club is about finding and collecting English language assessment exams, for example, TOEIC. So club members can try to practice before they go to the actual exam or if they want to test their knowledge and ability the member can also practice by themselves. There will be exam drills such as listening, reading, and writing. Our club team will also provide exam answers for all of the exam samples. Club members can check any exams that they practiced and the club staff will upload new exams every week.
If you want to develop your confidence, language skills, and practice test-taking strategies that will help you in your future endeavors then, “WE ARE THE CLUB THAT YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR! COME AND JOIN OUR TEAM AND LET US ALL REACH THE TOP TOGETHER!”

Why do we need more than one currency at all? Why is there a US dollar and a Canadian dollar.
FOR NO REASON. Just an artificial border created in 1770 and we have two different currencies.
Cryptocurrencies have what I call are “problem borders”.
One coin is better than Bitcoin for making contracts (Ethereum).
Another coin is better for privacy ((Zcash. A problem with Bitcoin is that although there are no names on a transaction, I can see the size and the time. So privacy is still a slight problem).
Another coin might be better for solving a problem of decentralized storage (as opposed to storing all of your photos on one centralizes spot that can be hacked like Google Drive). Bitcoin doesn’t address this problem.
Problem Borders create new currencies.
Is it too late to invest in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies?
Right now, this reminds me of the Internet in 1995–6. There’s a bit of irrational exuberance in new coins. Prices are going crazy.
There will be a massive pullback. BUT, the legitimate coins are here to stay and will keep going.
Amazon, of course, pulled back, when the Internet pulled back. Now it will eventually be a trillion dollar company.
Many companies that started in the 90s have survived and thrived and were great long-term investments that have paid off.
Cryptocurrencies are the “internet of money”. The internet is here to stay and so is the internet of money.
We are only in inning one of the cryptocurrency shift in our money.
Who is Satoshi?
Satoshi is the secretive founder of Bitcoin. He is worth many many billions in Bitcoin right now.
He is anonymous and reporters, governments, etc have never figured out who he is.
That said, a number of people know who he is. I read his blog every day, He is a secretive person and nobody wants to blow his cover.
Will cryptocurrencies replace paper money?
Yes. Eventually. It might not be Bitcoin although Bitcoin will always exist.
But each country, to solve the problems of paper money, will eventually switch. Countries that are debating it include: Israel, Estonia, Venezuela, Argentina.
Countries that will use some aspects of cryptocurrency technology in their central bank will soon include China, Korea, Russia, and yes, the United States.
And many countries will reject cryptocurrencies but their population will shift en masse to cryptocurrencies in order to avoid corruption, human error, theft, etc. First on my list for this is Argentina.
How else can one make money in the Bitcoin sector?
You don’t have to be a software developer.
When the gold rush hit in the 1800s, Levis Jeans became the big winner. And the companies that sold “picks” and “shovels”.
There will be many picks and shovels companies in the Bitcoin space.
Sites that have the latest bitcoin news and analysis will do well. Exchanges will do well. Companies that help integrate traditional companies with the deeper parts of Bitcoin technology will do well (like whoever is helping UPS integrate blockchain tech into their logistics).
Companies that help new cryptocurrencies launch will do well. And on and on.
Well, what should I do now?
Don’t listen to me.
a. Get an account on Coinbase (or wherever). Buy $10 worth of Bitcoin just to taste and feel it.
b. Then read. Read a lot.
Here’s some books not about Bitcoin that are worth
reading: Sapiens by Yuval Hurari
The Evolution of Everything by Matt Ridley The Ascent of Money by Niall Ferguson. Antifragile by Nassim Taleb
There’s a lot of discussion of cryptocurrencies on Reddit and Twitter. DO NOT read those. Most of those discussions are filled with trolls although there are some decent sources there.

FAQ: BITCOIN AND CRYPTOCURRENCY Why do we need other Cryptocurrencies?
“A relationship that is compatible with everything”
“Love happens when you invite
someone to see a shooting star”
John Ericson Vergara
This photo was taken on the 12th day of February. I was in my quarantine when I captured this photo. At first, I really had a hard time thinking of any ideas for my photo because I thought that it is impossible to find the meaning of love in times of loneliness and isolation. But then, I realized something wonderful. Love is not only about having a partner to fulfill
our desires and show affection to one another, it is not only about having friends whom you can rely and give your trust, it is not only about the love of our family but for me the real essence of love is that loving your self first. This silhouette of mine while looking at my fingers above is a representation
of me knowing my flaws and accepting it but not downgrading myself at the same time. Self-love is substantial. Before we love someone, we need to love our self wholeheartedly first. During this quarantine, I realized that being alone is a misery for people who seek all the love to others but, if you look within yourself you will realize that the real love you are looking for is you, only you. People changes, time passes, and everything alters but if you learn to love yourself, that is infinite and everlasting.

Tips for Solving Crossword Puzzles
Work in pencil. By working in pencil, you give yourself permission to guess and make mistakes. And mistakes make you a better puzzler in the end.
Be loyal to a puzzle editor. When you’re first starting to work crosswords, stick with puzzles you find in a single source (one book or one newspaper, for example). Doing so allows you to become familiar with what to expect from the puzzle editor (the person who compiles and styles each puzzle). This familiarity can simplify puzzles for you.
Think about theme. If a puzzle has a title, it indicates the theme of that puzzle. Usually the theme relates only to some of the clues — usually those that require longer answers — not all of them.
Fill in the blanks first. The fill-in-the-blank clues often are the easiest type to solve, so you can get a good start on your grid by cracking these first. Focus on small (three-to-five-letter) word entries. Puzzle constructors just don’t have as many of these short words to choose from in the English language. So, as you work more puzzles, you’ll get familiar with the short words that constructors and editors use over and over. By filling these in early on, you may break open your grid and be able to solve a few of your more difficult clues.
Visit Crosswordese.com. At this site, you’ll be introduced to short, often unusual English words that puzzle constructors love.
Get trivial. Because they’re usually fairly straightforward and don’t involve wordplay, trivia clues also may be fairly easy to answer. Plus, you can locate trivia answers in outside resources when you’re stuck.
Eye abbreviations and acronyms. If an answer needs to be an abbreviation or acronym, the clue tells you so. If you see “Abbr.” in the clue, or if the clue itself is abbreviated or an acronym, that’s your tip. Again, these smaller clues can help you
answer the more complex surrounding clues you may be stumped by.
Go global. If an answer is in a foreign language, the clue informs you by specifying the language or using words from that language.
Pick out plurals. When you’re stuck, look for clues written in a plural form. Using a pencil, write an S at the end of each grid entry that you know must be a plural word or phrase. Often (though not always), the S will be correct.
Tap outside resources. Most people can’t work a crossword puzzle without a little outside help. But don’t just type a clue into an online search engine; be picky about the resources you use. Keep a quality dictionary, thesaurus, quotation resource, atlas, and almanac on hand. You can use hard copies of these sources, or you can choose their electronic forms.
Ask for help. Make a crossword a social experience by asking help from friends or family members when you’re stuck.
Check off each clue that you solve. Marking your progress gives you a sense of accomplishment and helps you focus on those clues that remain. Don’t stress. If a puzzle stops being fun and starts feeling like work, simply walk away and come back to it a little later. The answers may come more easily after you take a breather.
Put yourself at the top of your to-do list and the rest will fall in to your place.
