Well, let hope that this thread will pan out better than the last one. Will post in here occasionally, probably depending on how people reacts to my post. Mostly will be vent posts about my day and the like. It is not going to be good nor entertaining, since my day job is a computer sales and repair man/guy/ dude/ inserts what ever pronoun you like.

Let start off with today. Riding across Hanoi like a mad man. In the morning went to one of my computer sales guy acquaintance to pick up a monitor since I sold the last one I got the day before, which mean now, I don't even have a computer to use. That monitor ended up being a tad more pricey than I would like and there are a few blemishes on it. Seems to be some moisture between the polarizing layer and the LCD layer. Will try to dry it out with a hair dryer tomorrow. Even though the monitor still have a warranty from Dell, I much rather have a monitor to use right now and not have to wait at least a month or so in this pandemic to have a monitor to use. Just my luck as well, since I after all this I saw a post where a guy is selling 15 of the monitor I used to have for a really good price. You win some you loose some I guess.

After picking up the monitor, I went to my SSD supplier and pickup a few SSD to install in the two systems I planned the day before. Got non of the SATA SSD I would like but there were lots of NVME SSD for not that much more money and the NVME SSD are one of the faster model there is so it is a no brainer for me. Got it on credit sale as well so I don't have to bother with payment til about a week or two from now.

Then, to complete my two planned systems, I wen't to a local distributor to pick up the CPUs, the motherboard and the power supply units. Got those on credit sale as well, so a huge leverage for me in this lean time of pandemic. Ironically the CPUs are what we called "tray" and not boxed CPUs, but they are only 8% cheaper than the boxed variety at retail of one of the major retailer in Hanoi. But at least I got it on credit sale. This just goes to show you that this business is not easy and margin are really thin.

Got back home and have steamed fish for lunch with mom and dad. Then spent time building the two systems. It went over quickly since I have build in this case before and there is no SATA drives in it so there are much less cables to deal with. Finished with those to system I went to deliver a monitor to a client 18-20km away in a silly old township call Rùa Thượng. Never heard of it before but it is not that far away of a drive and it is kinda close to another shop which I just sold some RAM to a few day before that they reported as not working back to me. Killing two bird with one stone so there I went. Afterward on the way back home I swing by my favorite GPU supplier to pickup some new stock, which ended up taking longer than expected since most of the stuff he had on hand was no good. But in the end we managed. At this point it was like 7PM so I scrambled back to my last ticket of the day, getting a Wifi card for a customer who I had sold a rig the day before. This was done without too much fuss. Finally got home, had some instant noodle and then back to work cleaning the GPUs I just bought. Took them all apart, give them a good washing (Yes, you can wash electronic, just make sure there are no electricity when there is water on them and you should be good) and then bake them in the dish dryer. One didn't make it, it spit out some weird artifacts on screen but it had happened to me before. This mean there are still moisture in the GPU and it need more time to dry out for good. That will be left til the next day then.

Well, by now we are all caught up. Will update this if I ever had the time or the will to do so. Used to do thing like this all the time in Uni as part of my assignment. 5-6k words "light paper" usually written the night before it is due. It is a good thing to have the ability to do, so I don't want it to rust away. Until the next time.

Your writing skill is very good. Can you tell me how you study and improve your English? I've studied this foreign language for a long time, more than 12 years. In high school, I learned grammar and vocabulary to pass tests and exams. But I can't understand what foreign people say and they don't know what I say, either. This is because of my terrible pronunciation. So, I tried so hard to overcome the listening problem by watching TV series such as Friends or HIMYM or listening to the news every day. About my pronunciation, I signed up for an Elsa account to improve my speaking ability. But my writing skill is still bad. So, I write this comment to ask you how to improve this. Should I sign up for a Grammarly account or an online grammar checker like that? Thank you in advance.

Since study method will vary for each individual based on personal abilities, skills and targets, I don't think I can come up with a useful and detailed advice for you. However, I can tell that you have a good basic in grammar and vocabulary, now you should focus on how to use that basic in reality in order to communicate with others in both verbal and written English. Don't worry about making mistakes, and find yourself an effective way to learn through your hobbies. Just try to surround yourself in English by watching shows & movies, listening to music & news, reading books etc., it works somehow

Honestly, I'm not in the position to tell you how to learn English as I've been living in Australia for nearly 2 years and still find it hard to communicate with native speakers. That's why I'm looking for buddies here to kill time in a meaningful way and help each other improve

Dude, find a proper teacher. Despite being quite nerdy and techy, I still don't believe in this whole online learning and work from home shit. Yes you'll see that one kid popping up on TV speaking English like it's nothing, and chances are their parents would say 'mah kid learnt it online' or something. Call it what you want, but to me it's just some BS they show on TV to prove how 'smart' Vietnamese people are. Choose your own narrative, don't let those BS interfere with your life. It doesn't matter if it takes 15 years or whatever year to master English. The only thing that counts is your ability to use the language. Stick with it and keep persevering mate.

TL;DR: find a teacher, apps won't work, keep learning.

Bonus: the reason why writing and speaking are so challenging is because they are output skills, which require lots of input.

P.s. I spent a good 10 minutes on this post.

Damn, you guys are so good in writing. While my reading and listening skill is not so bad, writing and speaking are different stories. About listening, i think i can improve it by watching some foreign channel like National Geographic, Fox Movies, try to listen how they speak and look at subtitles if i cant catch up with their speech. But for writing, well... i must say i am in the dark right now. Even writing these take quite an effort for me. I practice it everyday, but i dont know when and how long it will take till i am good at writing.

Exactly, discussing and debating with others somewhere on the internet help alot as you need a point and develope it to express your idea, which is good for your brain and your wrting skill and I use Google whenever I need to check on grammar, fast and efficient.

Well I'm a coffeeholic and there was a time I was happy with regular coffee from the supermarket, and even instant coffee is fine. I was forgivable back then. All I needed was the caffeine punch, like craving for it. But one day I stumbled across the coffee art group, I decided to learn how to make proper coffee drinks. I really enjoy making coffee then enjoy it like hot bread. Now I couldn't stand instant coffee and cheap coffee, they are gross though and unhealthy (lol).

I'm working at the middle of nowhere actually and it's not so bad as it seems or maybe I'm sick of the crowded city. After my graduation I decided to leave the city and work at the place nearby my house. Life is easy there, and my job pays decent money as well.

Judging by your avatar, I suppose you're a gurl and your brother is younger than you. If that's the case, then as a younger brother myself, I'd say you are fine. Maybe that's because I automatically assume that everyone watches pawn. Soooo... your mileage may vary xD.

If you're a dude, then what dafak is wrong with you? Im pretty darn sure that you dirty pos used to masturbate 24/7 in your teens. And your brother must also be a teen so he probably already has a rough idea of what to do with his dicc. Because of that, he will completely understand and be more than okay with his older brother being a faptronaut.

Edit: I seriously think the reason why I'm still single is because I fap too much .

That book is too complicated to be practical, lol
I think a grammar book like English Grammar in Use is more than enough. Don't spend too much time on grammar, start building your vocabulary. It's like learning music theory without playing any instrument or sing any song

I could understand spoken English well but when it comes to speaking out my own thoughts, I was like choking, stuttering all the time. Maybe I'm too introverted or too shy to say out loud any real shit

It's weird when there is a wall of text here.
Because I am struggling when I want to write something long, my post usually was some short sentences. I feel like there are a bunch of fragments around my mind, make me cant figure out how to write a smooth sentence.
Maybe I need to improve my grammar or expand my vocabulary?
To be honest, the content that you want to tell is vital than anything. You just dont care what kind of sentence you use.

Besides, if you want to have long or fancy sentences in your writing, you may use some words like "althought, in spite of, and, however...". When you use them, your writing automatically lengthen, along with the content.

Try it.

Hi guys! how's your day? I am extremely happy to be here and sharing my favorites with you. I am not so good at English through i'v been learning for about 2 years. So plz don't laugh at me for some mistake i made... by the way, today i am going to talk about one of my friends, and how she got an 7.0 IELTS without go to any language center. don't you believe that?
She is a sophomore in HB University, very attractive with a beautiful smile that smelted my heart everytime i see it . I know that some boys in university are flirting her . and she still not falling in love with any of them but me. oh sorry, it's is another story go on...
as i said, she doesn't go to language center and just learn engish by her self. She started learning english from zero in the first year in university, if i don't wrong, she and spent alot of time on the internet, watching Youtube, the chanel she subcrised are ted, BBC, VOA, ... she used Open talk (an app for talking with forgein people) too. She keeping like that every night after shool. And yesterday,she showed off her IELTS result to me, and asking for reward!!!

Well, no need to worry, bro. Getting rejected from recruiters is totally normal, especially at the start of your career path. A few years ago, I failed an interview to a fresh position, then I tried to find the interviewer’s email address and wrote her an email to persuade her to offer me a second chance.

Though I quit a few months later as I did not find myself suitable, I really appreciated her as she granted me an opportunity to expose to new environment and to explore my own personalities. I also feel sorry that I disappointed her when I chose to give up so quickly in the end, but I still believe that it was the best thing I could do back to that time.

I then moved on with, or actually returned to, another career path, and got quite satisfied with the experience I’ve gained as well as the knowledge I’ve acquired over the years I have been at my current company.
I am now working for 2 companies at the same time, so I spent around 10-12 hours/day working, including Sat and Sun, but I love keeping myself occupied like this as a workaholic. My income is quite minimal to most people here and my classmates, but I have faith in myself and believe that I will have a lot more room to grow in the future.

Thus, my advice is that you can spend some time doubting yourself, then pick up your mood, and start a new journey. What makes you love that company that much? Is it true that it must be the company that offers you such advantages, or can you find them elsewhere? If you really love it and believe that you are competent for the position, let's think over if you can persuade them for a second chance; otherwise, let's start with another company and polish your skills, yet keep this dream with you so that once you are ready, you can challenge yourself again :"> Good luck and have courage

It was very nice of them to reply to you the result. Most of the recruiters I have interviewed with just didn't bother to send me a note. I am very jealous with you guys, your field of study/career has so many opportunities to gain hands-on experience. When I was a student, got accepted to an intern program is only for TOTL students. I'm thinking of learning coding, as I were always enthusiastic of computer and programming, but for some reason that I could barely remeber, I chose Pharmacy instead.

I feel kinda frustrated, since I was trained a lot of academic knowledge in University, and it turns out nearly useless in practical settings. Like many colleagues in my class, I got my first job as a Sales Rep, but ended up quitting after few months. It did pay good money, but I don't like what's I was doing then. I finally got a intern position in Hospital but delayed till next month.

I got rejected many times, it hurted at the first time. But it turned out fine when you rearrange your mind. Think that you got rejected just because you didn't fit. No matter how well prepared you are, the recruiter could see that you're prepared and could find a way to reveal you true self

Like many colleagues in my class, I got my first job as a Sales Rep, but ended up quitting after few months. It did pay good money, but I don't like what's I was doing then. I finally got a intern position in Hospital but delayed till next month.

I got rejected many times, it hurted at the first time. But it turned out fine when you rearrange your mind. Think that you got rejected just because you didn't fit. No matter how well prepared you are, the recruiter could see that you're prepared and could find a way to reveal you true self
Fun story. I also had pharmacy as one of my university references. Though I intentionally didn't go deep into any subjects in group B, because I knew I wasn't for either healthcare or pharmacy. One reason that made me went through the hassle of even adding pharmacy into my reference list was my mom. She had always wanted me to follow her career path, which was healthcare. And we all know you gotta have something crazy like 27 or 28 out of 30 to have a fair chance of getting admitted to a reputable medical school. Mom knew it all along that I wouldn't stand a chance :<, so I just sorta added pharmacy in as a so-called small proof that I would give everything I got.

Because my parents are pretty liberal in these matters, I was allowed to pick whatever I wanted for the rest of my references, which were, from top to bottom, FTU, UEL and UEH. Then, I proceeded to fail both FTU and UEL on the first day lol . The results of those 2 came in just hours apart. I was 3 points short for FTU and 0.25 short for UEL. This meant I only had one chance and obviously things were super tense. My mom still sometimes reminds me of how I almost didn't get into a university, and, in turn, I often remind her of how she lost that 10 million bet we had over me failing. UEH was one of the latter universites to release the baseline score, and thank god I was through. Waking up to that stupid message about things to prepare for the admission day was amazingly sweet and memorable. I rushed to show it to my parents and we all shared a good laugh and maybe at the same time a sigh of relief.

Fast forward 3 years, I'm now preparing for my graduation. Still have no idea of where to go from now. My major won't help here cuz it's not the most specific thing ever. So I'm turning to you guys. Does any of you happen to know a place that needs a PC enthusiast that also has a special spot for cars and motorcycles, and can speak 2-ish languages with some knowledge about economics?

Edit: spent exactly 1 hour 49 minutes on this. Isn't it weird how sometimes words just come out so effortlessly and smoothly and sometimes I just can't form a meaningful sentence of any kind

Dude, if you're super horny and so is your girl friend, by all means, go for it. I don't know if i'm being boomer-ish or not, but I'm just not a huge fan of people fucking around and bragging about losing their virginity in the early teens or how many girls they have slept with or whatever. Then again, at the end of the day, who am I to judge
.

Well, I generally do not find myself agree with you on this comment when you referred them as “super horny”, which sounds both disapproving and sarcastic.

As for me, it is just a personal choice, and the only thing that one must make sure whenever making a decision is that he/she is able to take full responsibility under all circumstances. For this case, I would take getting pregnant as the worst scenario. Thus, if the girl is ready to either suffer abortion or giving birth in such case, plus her partner has been well acknowledged and agreed with the solution at the beginning, there is nothing wrong at all. Specifically for my case, I did totally the same as what I abovementioned

Of course, it must be distinguished between having sex with his/her ONLY partner at the time they are in a relationship, and doing that with a number of people with no consideration. I am not a big fan of this either. It sounds weird to me, yet serves as normal to a lot of people out there actually

You’d better start with a grammar book. Theoretical as it may sound, it is the best way to improve your grammar. I think that you may know all grammar rules but do not how to use them properly, and a good grammar book will help you re-arrange all the messy ideas in your mind. You may wish to go to the topic for materials in this same box and download Grammar in Use, which is believed to be common and useful, and thus, be a good beginning.

I'm pretty sure that most of people in this thread start learning English in the same way with grammar books. If you are in highschool, you probably have been familiar with English books for roughly 7 years. It is going to be around 10 years if you are in college by now. If those books did not work out in the past then why do you believe It will now ?
From my perspective, it's better to learn English from your hobbies. The reason is simple, you will not get bored which your hobbies easily. Studying from books is more suitable if you want to achieve a certain goal in a short amount of time. In the long run, I don't think it's a good idea.
// I feel like my writting skill is facking rusty after almost 2 months without any practice

The reason why I suggested him to start with a book is that I believe that he has gained some knowledge through his reading, but he cannot use it properly. His inactive knowledge is like small particles of the machine, and he gets to know more about the particles he has on hand before he is able to categorize and arrange them logically, then master them as a machine as a whole.

That’s for this case only, and if I meet someone with no idea about English or English grammar, I will not advise the same because I have never been in a similar case to them.

——————————————

I heard a lot about learning through hobbies, but it is a real challenge to me as I do not have any special interest on anything :chaymau: Really admire those who work this way :sosad:

——————————————

I have been learning English for almost 20 years. In the beginning, I learnt English at a local foreign center in a small province to the South of HCMC. Back to 2001, it only cost my parents 40-60k for a 3-month course, and 5k (or 10k, perhaps) for my textbook I was totally dump for the first 3 years then I took a gap year from English and resumed in secondary highschool. Strange as it seems, upon my return, my English started to improve dramtically for no specific reason
The only reason I can come up with is that I had an accummulation phase in my primary school, when I grew slowly as one of the worst students in my English class. Then, during the year I was away from English, what I had learnt slowly found their place in my mind, and when I resumed from a different approach (FYI, back to my time, we should start learning English in Grade 6, so I began to learn from ABC again), they got re-arranged in a more logical way that I could make noticeable improvement. That was how the tipping point approached my English skills

—————————

I am now quite satisfied with my English, honestly. I can communicate confidently with any foreigners at work, either face-to-face or via phone call or conference call, and I almost eliminate my Vietnamese sounds when I speak English, except for the intonation and some difficult words (I used to face a huge problem with the word “result” and everyone had no idea why I could not pronounce it ). One of my favorite ways of practice is to talk to myself whenever I am alone, haha

Urrgggggg, how frustrating, I wrote a long post on my phone and accidentally swiped back to cause it disappear :brick:

Disclaimer: People who prepare to do IELTS or similar tests in a short amount of time should stick to books and ignore my post.

^ you made some fair points, but in your story, the turning point in my humble opinion is some how after the gap year from English, you made some progress. It is very important to acctually achieve something in the progression of learning any subject. The feeling of figuring out by yourself a math problem or understanding a joke in English is pretty much the same. It brings some weird joys to your mind but more than that it also provide "motivation".
"Motivation" is the root of perseverance and with enough perseverance we can do almost anything we want. Many students struggle with their English just because it's does not matter how hard they try, how many vocabulary they memorize, their test score's still suck. And as a result, they will lost their "motivation". Maybe they're doing it the wrong way, maybe the way of books is not suitable for them and maybe learning English is not all about score. Someone said that learning a language is also learning about the culture so maybe grammar fomulars and vocabulary in books is not enough. You can explore a culture by playing game, watching movie, reading kid's fables or novels, listening to music ... or checking out youtube contents like those in #113. It will take alot of time to gain significant improvement but the process is more enjoyable.
I don't deny the fact that academic books help many people improve their English skills and achieve their goals. It works with those people does not mean that it will work with someone else. I just want to say, if you can not find your "motivation" with books, it's time to try something else.

My writing is too poor

Can english teachers here essess the basic paragraph below? Thank you.

Although it has been many years ago, I never forget the first time to have watched a movie in the cinema. I come from a countryside where I find it hard to find a movie theater. My dream finally came true when I studied university in HCM city. After I had finished the class, I was so joyful to go to the cinema to enjoy the film. I felt so happy when I beheld the chair, the large screen and the modern air-conditioner. While I was enjoying the movie alone, there are many couples hugging together under the fresh air of the AC. The movie lived up my expectation, and that memory never fades in my mind.
Not sure if it is good enough but I hope this helps

I felt so happy to experience the comfortable chair, the large screen and the modern air-conditioner, despite the fact that I was enjoying the movie alone while surrounded by many couples hugging each other under the fresh air of the AC.

Try some different approaches on telling your story. Hmm I mean don't just repeat the structure [S+V] all the time like that, some of your sentences could be rephrased into a phrase like [After I had finished the class] into after class, [I come from a countryside] into as a countryside boy, it was hard for me to... and such. Text filled by repeating structures are monotonous.
behold <- don't use this word, see/saw is enough. This word in your text feels like a steak served with mắm tôm, not necessarily wrong, but they don't go along.
[ I studied university ] you attend a university or you study in a university, [study a university] is something else.
Oh and these [ I never forget ] and [that memory never fades] would sound a bit smoothier in future tense. I don't know if it's wrong or not, I just feel so.

It's not poor, but it doesn't sound "natural" to me, mainly because I can feel that you are trying quite hard to include many "difficult" (but weird) words and structures. There also some minor grammatical errors. I will list them as below:

1. the first time to have watched... (cụm dài quá) -> the first time I watched... (chuyển sang mệnh đề quan hệ)
2. a countryside (ngữ pháp) -> the countryside
3, After I had finished the class (ko cần thiết phải dùng thì hoàn thành) -> After I finished the class
4. joyful (sai về nghĩa) -> happy/excited/glad...
5. beheld (từ rất cổ) -> saw
6. chair (đây là ghế ngồi nhà) -> seats (đây mới là ghế ngồi rạp, hiểu đúng hơn là chỗ ngồi)
7. there are many couples (sao lại hiện tại) -> there were
8. hugging together (đã ôm thì đương nhiên là ôm nhau rồi cần gì phải together nữa trời) -> hugging/cuddling/making out
9. fresh air of the AC (khí trời mới fresh thôi) -> cool air from the AC
10. lived up my expectation (ngữ pháp) -> lived up TO my expectation

I can say you are pretty good. Be more confident. You can watch more films or read more blogs by the Americans/British to have a better feel of how they actually say it. Keep everything simple but correct, rather than complex but weird. Too many people make these mistakes.

Well, What a terrible day! Got an interview early in the morning, with an expectation of being outstanding, making some good impressions to employer, but how tf can I know or guess that I would get choked so badly. It seems like mentality has long been my issue, that non-stop undermines the confidence or at least what remains. Like a child playing hide and seek, sometimes this unclear and inconsistent pain shows some sign of recovery, mitigation, driving me to believe that I am an utterly different version, a better one who I still believe that is true me. The other times, it gets worse, exacerbating, torturing and me, again suffering.

yeah,but life doesn’t really that bad, and sad. There are still some silver linings in this month. Imagine that you are in a dark cold and shuttered room, and somehow, a glimmering light manages to sneak into. The light, weak and unstable, sheds on your soul, and all of sudden, it bursts into flame, shines your eyes and ways, warms your heart, and heats up all - the hope to keep on living, the willingness to dream, one more time. Life is getting brighter though it is not because of my becoming better, but a fear stemming from the show Bojack Horseman. The cartoon TV show describes a daily life of a horse, also known as a well known, but infamous actor. Walking through 6 season is to feel, to express sympathy and sometimes to vent the wrath on this asshole but unlucky, pitiful character. If you are like me, being stucked in career, in life, unable to get out eventhough you have tried, so hard, so much, you should give this show a shot. You will get better.

This is an old reply but it piqued my interest a bit and I thought I'd like to expand upon it. Do take my words with a grain of salt and I have no idea how long this is going to be because I'm literally thinking as I go.

Someone's already mentioned it a few replies below that it's because the games are not actively trying to get you to learn English. They are just, erm, games.
The underlying psychological reason behind this is due to the fact that you're engaging in an activity that you personally and purposefully chose to do. You simply like/love it. In other words, you could say you don't hate it. It's not such a burden or a struggle for you that you will detest it. You are willing to go any extra miles to learn about it. This is quite similar to how you're willing to research subjects in school that you prefer simply because you love them.
When it comes to games (which are more than often in English), learning English becomes a byproduct. It means when you learn to play the game, you subconsciously and passively start to learn English, albeit the end result will usually be acceptable at best, which allows you to understand how the game works at the bare minimum. The thing is, if you are someone who plays games, religiously or not, you don't just stop at one game now, do you? That's why you start making progress with English without knowing it. In some cases, like with what happened to the person whom I've quoted above, you begin to realize that you find it interesting and actively seek for a way to learn English.
This is also why some games are specifically made to teach you English. Although to my knowledge, most if not all fail because in the end they still try too hard trying to get you to learn English. A game is just a game, it's not capable of answering questions you might have, which is why you need a teacher.
What makes a good teacher is they are able to use the teaching materials as guidelines, not just blindly preaching them.
What makes a great teacher is they will go above and beyond to teach you English without actually doing so. If they can make it feel near effortless and fun for you to absorb everything, then congratulations, you've got yourself an amazing teacher. Don't forget to be thankful, because those are in short supply.

If you're thinking about learning English, try to find where your heart is at with it. Do you need it for yourself or do you need it for work? How much are you willing to study for it? Will it pay dividends to force yourself to learn it at all? There's multiple levels of proficiency to mastering English, depending on the field of work you are in (if that's why you are learning) too.
A lot of times you will find yourself barely improving at all. This is completely normal because you've most likely reached a plateau - meaning the progress you're making is not by leaps and bounds anymore, you're improving, only slowly. Most people feel that way from IELTS's band 8.0 and above trying to make the jump to a higher band. Do not beat yourself over it. Take a break and then come back. When you're quite comfortable with English, you'll find it easier to take in new things. Trust me.
Try to make it fun, don't make it a chore. People have been saying this a bazllion times: English in the end is only a tool. You choose what to do with it.

If you've actually read everything, thanks for that. I hope that it was somehow meaningful to you. I'll be checking in on this thread regularly though.

metoo, but i found my problem is i didn't try hard enough. we should be persistent and learn new words everyday, even just one word a day. and write that word down without vietnamese meaning, just a column with all english new words . . . then when u look back those u will find out how many words u still remember, moreover u also have to try to look up in your memory what that word means. just say that. i'm very lazy tho, feel like after many years my english skills stuck in one place ...

Consistency is definitely important, so you should keep on practicing everyday. The process is fruitful, trust me on this.
However, in my view, not every time, learning words by memorizing their English meanings is appropriate. I once learnt that way, and I find out that, by default, both languages are kept active in your brain. And your reflex toward language will prioritize your native one, not the other way around since it sounds far more familiar to you, your ear, and you brain ofc. If you want to move fast, put a word in context (a paragraph), attach a Vietnamese meaning with it, then read the whole paragraph aloud, while alternating between VN and English meaning. If you have time, then follow the old way, the method that you place all your trust.
Good luck.

Hello and good morning to all of you degenerate fuckwits. As you can see, I have made good on my promise of NOT replying to this thread regularly. A person needs certain motivation to do things, and posting long threads after a long day using this blasted language is not conducive for motivation generation.

Finally got my personal computer to 80% completion. Got the dream CPU on it, the trusty 3700X. Give it a light OC at 4.0GHz and 1.2V Vcore so the poor Wraith Prism cooler can handle it til custom watercooling system can be installed. Speaking of which, 80% of the parts for that is also complete with the recent purchase of two 360mm radiators and CPU blocks and assortment of fittings. All I need is to find a appropriate GPU and put it underwater as well. Or I might just put the CPU underwater for now and get the next gen 3000 series NVIDIA card due later this year. Other minor stuff like the memory subsystem and storage is also at a stage of waiting on parts to become available. Got a PM981a 256GB and a 4TB HDD as a hold over for now til the pair of SM963 960GB SSDs and another 4TB HDD become available. This COVID 19 sucks, can't get anything to sell nor use. Speaking of memory my Gskill TridentZ neo kit suffer a dead on arrival kit. Brand new, out of the box but one of the stick decided not wanting to live anymore. Just my luck. Since this stuff is not available in Vietnam (I have checked, the particular kit I have is out of stock everywhere) I have ordered it in fron the states. Now that decision have come back to bite me in the ass.

The more time I spent on the rig, the more it cost ballooned up. Now it is projected to cost over 50 millions and it is not with the best CPU and GPU currently available!? How is this even possible!? HOW DO I END UP WITH A COMPUTER THAT IS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN MY MOTORBIKE AND MY WARDROBE COMBINED JUST TO BROWSE VOZ!?

Anyway, shorter rant than normal. Hope you all keep this up. I have been at this for over 15 years, you will get better and it all will be easier in the end. Just need to get over that hump and you will be fine.

Fuck this madness. I hate the world. I hate everyone. I will kill all of you. I will laugh at your begging and curses. I will witness your last breath. I will drink your blood. I will break your bones. I will humiliate your stinky corpse. I will imprison your dirty spirit. Hell. You belongs in hell. All of you.

It took us the last three years of our students trying to get out of this place, and a lifetime longing to come back .... I used to wish to get out of there quickly. But after graduating from school, I realized that this life has never been easy and light, that place probably literally means paradise.

Lately, all I can feel is emptiness. All of the sudden, I don't know of joy or sorrow anymore and life's just seem so dull. In my eyes, every value or meaning is nothing but deceitful propaganda, turning people into excellent actors. I don't bother to do anything, all the time look at the phone screen and scroll without seeing a thing. Feeling like I'm struggling, even to exist.

Anyone here knows of Assisted suicide?
I personally love the idea to help people, who're in dead end of course, to be released from their torment. However, the issue's such a delicate one that the service's left unnoticed and many of those knowing it tend to criticize harshly. Though I can understand their fear and optimism up to a point, I still do hope the service get accepted abroad, and carried out with absolute strict process.

Today, while relaxing after work, I surfed Facebook and randomly saw someone's status "Only later did I know, that profit did not belong to me, it was just that I passed right in the most exciting season of the market". It makes me loud of laugh with some tears on the face. Is anyone here a stock trader?
Oh, that sentence was lyrics of the song name “Bong Hoa Dep Nhat”? Huh??

1 - Say what interests you most.

=> Tại sao ss nhất mà ko có THE các fen ?

2- Convey Transfer khác nhau như nào ?
1. In informal British English, when "most" is used in the sense of "the largest part of something", "the" can be omitted.

2. When you transfer something, you move something from one place to another.
  • I transferred (= moved) the photos to my friend via email.
When something conveys something else, it carries the object on its own body.
  • The trucks are conveying the cargo to the shipyard.
The word "convey" is more commonly used in the figurative sense:
  • This poem conveys liberal ideologies.

Since when did we actually die?
22 years old, you graduated from university, because your major is not easy to find a job, the first few years you have to drive motorbike taxi, fast delivery.
24 years old, you find a job, the job is not high paying, and often have to work overtime until late at night.
30 years old, you get married, the person is introduced by the matchmaker, your parents ask you if you like the girl, you nod loudly: "I like it."
At the age of 33, your health is getting worse and worse, the overtime is getting less and less, and the rate of advancement is getting slower and slower. Your wife tells you: "Our daughter is going to kindergarten, bilingual 6 million a month." You frowned, she couldn't take it anymore, "Loc's son, 12 million a month!" "I was like that, do you want your children to fail too?!" You keep quiet, go back to your room to give your wife 12 million, that money you calculate for your birthday to reward yourself with a new computer set.
36 years old, your daughter entered 1st grade. The teacher said first grade is very important, you laughed, yes yes yes, please take care of my daughter for me, the teacher see you don't understand, show you the way: "one month tutoring about..etc." In sixth grade, she said middle school is very important, you laughed and said: "yes yes yes, I am planning to pay extra tuition for my daughter."
One day when your daughter came home, she said to you: "Dad, I want to learn piano".
Although you are no longer wondering, the sentence "I can't buy it" these years, you have said a lot, but this time still can't say it.
Fortunately, the daughter is quite understanding, she said: "It's okay, Dad, if you cant buy it, I can learn the guitar well." You look at your good daughter, feeling happy in your heart.
46 years old, your daughter attends high school in a not-so-bad school.
One day, you were in a meeting, received a phone call from the teacher, the phone said your child had a fight at school, invited parents to go to school to solve it. You timidly ask your boss 5 years younger than you to take a break. When you go to school, you are taught by the teacher, "you are a parent but you don't know how to teach your child", you laugh, yes, yes.
49 years old, daughter goes to college.
Your daughter's major, you look at and understand nothing. You just know that the job is definitely not easy to find, but the tuition is extremely high.
One night, you got drunk and came home to talk to your children. You say the words that you used to hate, " You must think for the sake of the future job, choose a hot profession, don't do what you want anymore."
You and your child go from talking to arguing. You find out you're old, don't argue with girls anymore. You cant say again to her, can only scream: "I am your father!"
she looks at you, knows it's useless to argue, you don't want to listen anymore. When she comes back to her room, you hear a voice echo: "I don't want to live like you."
You don't know why you sit and cry, the first crying after 50 years old.
Probably because the wine is too spicy, right?
Probably because the wine was too spicy.
55 years old, daughter go work, seems to have sympathized with you a little. 56 years old, daughter married.
You asked her if you liked that boy. She said firmly: "I like it." You are very excited.
60 years old, working hard all your life, you want to travel a little.
The other half has been with you for the past 30 years, but you still don't know like her or not.
You and her begin to calculate the travel tour. After so many years, the two still disagree, still quarrel. After that, everything was ready, then the daughter said: "Mom and Dad, we're so busy, can you help us take care of my son?". You delay your plane ticket, go back like 30 years ago.
At the age of 70, the daughter's child is also full growth, no longer needing to take care of him every day. You decide to say, "Must go on a trip." But the stick in hand can only help you go down to the flower garden downstairs.
73 years old, you lie on a hospital bed, wake up from a coma, surrounded by people, you dreamily see the doctor shaking his head, the people around him look dignified.
You realize, you're going to die.
you have no fear.
you suddenly wonder,
When did I actually die?
you remember getting married at the age of 30,
Turns out, by then, you were already dead.
3 seconds before your death, 73 years of your life rewind, 1 second, 2 seconds pass, your face expressionless.
The 3rd second, you suddenly laugh.
It's 15 years old, you see a boy with a loaf of bread, carrying a bag, following a group of other students. The boy walked over to the girl's next door's balcony and looked out the window.
That's the girl you secretly loved at the age of 15,
You can't figure out what she looks like, you try to remember.
3 seconds passed, the person next to you suddenly cried, you fell into the night without knowing anything.
