It stops working

My old laptop is four years old.  I hand it over to my sister for two years already and she has been using it since then.  But because it is a bit heavy, the sister decided to buy netbook.  She is still using the old laptop though because some of her files at school is saved in the old laptop.  Just recently, she thought of handing over the old laptop to the niece because niece needs laptop at school.  The sister started transferring her old files to finally hand over the laptop to the niece.  However, the laptop suddenly stops working.

OMG!  I guess the old laptop is hurts that is why it stops working.  The sister is sad because she just bought new battery for the old laptop and the laptop is stopped working.  How can she give it to my niece?  Another expenses is about to happen I must say but the sister is on a tight budget.  The handing over of the old laptop might take longer because it needs to be repaired and the sister has no money for that now.  Just be patient my niece, you will have this laptop next year, we hope.

Happy to have new phone

She got her first phone when she finished with honors a year ago.  It was my award for the job well done.  Also I promise that whoever finished with honors will get a reward of their choice.  And the niece chooses phone.  Unfortunately, the phone lasted for months only.  She did not take good care of it.  Yes, I am so angry because she is being careless, I scolded her and get mad at her but there is no use because the damage is already done.   I should not give her phone then.  However, a promise is a promise and I am keeping it.  She deserves to get the reward of her choice.

After her phone gets busted, she does not have phone.  We are worried because we cannot check on her at school since she goes home on her own from school.  Her grandfather gave her another phone, and it is busted as well.  Made me realized that this girl is not bad luck when it comes to having  The classes will start soon and her older sister will be studying in different school.  Even if I am angry, I think she’ll be needing a phone.  I asked my brother if he could give to her his old phone since he bought new one.  At first my brother did not answer, but I never give up until he said yes.  The niece has new phone now and she is so happy.  I told her to be careful this time because this will be the last time we are giving her phone.  Next time, she has to buy herself phone using her own money.   I hope that she will take good care of it.  Good luck to the new phone.whew*

Showing her some techniques

Not like her older sister, my other niece is a bit slow in mathematics especially in division. She is having a hard time to solve problem in division in more than four digits. She is trying her best though. I have told her older sister to help her in solving division problems. However, instead of teaching her it is her older sister who will solve the problems and will give to her the answer with the solutions. What my niece did is wrong because she is not helping her sister at all. I want her to teach her little by little for her to know the steps so she can solve it alone.

I did not like what the older niece did, so even if I do not like I teach the niece instead and showing her some techniques to make the division in multiple number easy and fast. I am sharing the same techniques I used when I was still studying. I am not good in mathematics but math is one of my favorite subjects. It took us almost three hours solving their division assignments in mathematics. I give my very best and share some techniques to the niece too. I do hope that she will use it and practice more for her to appreciate the mathematics subject especially the division. Also, one of the reason I am teaching the teach my simple techniques is for her to not be dependent with the calculator for I know calculator won’t help her at all.

Photographer of the day

The long wait is over. haha! Today is the day of the niece recognition day at school.  I am excited because she finished with honors and also do her first dancing performance at school.  I am just so happy to know that the niece is not that shy anymore.  She has develop self-confidence I guess because she is willing to come out in the open and show to the people what she got.  Indeed the niece makes us so proud of her.  And because I am so proud of her, I took the honor to be her photographer of the day.  I wanted to take a photos of her as her remembrance on her first grade at new school.

Though I am not a professional photographer, at least I can tell that I can take a shot fairly well.  In fairness to me, I did took a nice shot of the niece earlier.  And I am proud to be her photographer.  Wanna hire me? haha  Oh well, I give credit to the nice camera that the sister lend me.  Thanks sister as well.

Checking her cellphone

A month ago, the SIL gave the cellphone to her daughter for her to contact them anytime if she needed anything like things to buy for her project.  Also for her to message her parents if something is wrong and she needs to be fetch at school.  Part of giving her daughter a cellphone is the expenses for cellphone’s load for the niece to be able to contact them.  The load of her cellphone is budgeted and limited.  So it is purely for important and emergency purposes only.

Unfortunately, the load of the niece’s cellphone won’t last for two days.  The niece keeps on asking for a load from her mother that is why the SIL is wondering.  The SIL wants to know what are the other activities of her daughter and so she is checking the daughter’s cellphone.  After checking, the SIL know that her daughter is exchanging messages to her classmate that is why her load did not last for three days.  Though they are just exchanging girly stuffs there but still it is not good because it adds more expenses.  The SIL will talk to her daughter this weekend and will try to make her understand that the use of cellphone is for important matter only.
