The niece took the examination to avail of the summer class about computers two months ago. Luckily, she passed the examination and she can avail of the summer class. However, it is not for free but because she passed the exam she will get a discount. I read the program and it is nice because it will really help the niece to be more knowledgeable in computers. If ever she will take computer related course in college, it would be easier for her because of the background she will get is she grabbed the summer class offered. If this class offered when I am still studying I will surely grab it.
The class has nice sessions. The niece showed to us the amount we are going to pay upon registration and the amount we have to pay every session. The discount is already deducted. Even though it has discount, still the amount is a bit high and the SIL do not like it. To her, instead of spending money for the said summer class, it is best to save the money for the next school year. She has a point, anyways the niece is only 11 years old. The offer is good but the timing is not. I am pretty sure that more opportunities will come her way. The niece is sad because she really wanted to take the summer class for computers. I guess this is not the right time.
Indeed the new generations of today are very much techie. At a young age, they are more aware of what is latest in the technology like gadgets. They already know how to open it, operate it and play with it. Not like before, the kids today are so techie with it comes to games. They do not like playing with their toys anymore because they prefer to play the games downloaded in the mobile phones, tablets, Ipads and other gadgets. It is sad to know that the old ways of playing is slowly fading. But in in all fairness to us, in our house, the sister and brother still buy toys for their kids.
Instead of allowing their kids to play games on the mobile phone, tablets and laptop, they are encourage their kids to play educational toys. It is better to play and see using the real objects than seeing on the gadgets. However, the kids gets so curious because they saw us playing with our gadgets. In my case, when I play games in my tablet, the 2 years old nephew is on my lap and watched me playing. Been doing it when I get bored and lonely at home. I am not aware that the nephew is growing. Now the nephew wants to play with my tablet. I give it to him once and I am surprised because he already knows how to open and operate when he wants to play games. And loves to play with it. Yes, it is my fault and I need to find ways to make him interested playing of the educational toys his mother bought for him/them. Good luck to me. Lesson learned: Do not underestimate the kids of new generation.
I was cleaning the house this morning because it is a bit messy now. It’s been a while since the last time I do the general cleaning of our humble abode. In the corner of our house I saw my old desktop. The desktop that I used on the first day I started blogging and it has sentimental value to me because this desktop helps me to make my dream to become a blogger come true. I cannot blog anymore because the memory is too low and it is very old computer.
While cleaning I think of selling my desktop. I think it is better to sold it to someone who can use it rather than to put in the corner and rat can play with it. I am not sure if someone might get interested to buy it, still I put desktop for sale outside our house.
