Homework – Revolution!

If you were told you had to start a revolution at NIST or in this area of Bangkok in order to improve things, what would it be? What would you change and why?

    Hi Mr.Sam,

    If I had to start a revolution in NIST/this area of Bangkok, I would start one on recycling because there are a lot of plastic/paper in our school because people go outside of school to buy a packet of food or a drink and they come in plastic or polystyrene. Maybe even both. They would then eat/drink the contents and then throw the packaging away which takes a long time to break down or maybe even is non-biodegradable.

    I would change it so that people bring their own reusable cups and containers so that we don’t have to use a paper cup or polystyrene box. By not using so much plastic, polystyrene or paper, this helps because for example, there won’t be as many trees chopped down to make paper.

    • January 18, 2012 at 6:25 pm

      We are improving on that because we bring waterbottles and lunch boxes, but it is the secondaries that are hard to convince.

      How will you make this change?

      • January 18, 2012 at 7:43 pm

        I would make a rule about it and be strict about it too so that people will listen to the rule.

          That’s good, because sometimes if you face people who are determined not to change, like Allice Gue, than you must be harsh and strict on them.

        • January 20, 2012 at 8:34 pm

          I agree with you Andrea. Some people don’t listen to other people even thought you really mean it. We need to make a rule that will really make people change. For example our school has a strict rule about hats.

      Yes, I can see that your idea is a very good one because it will help our community. Like the junk food in Huntington, young children are brought up to use plastic packaging and then throw it away like the world has an infinite supply of plastic. Well, reality check. We don’t and plastic packaging is one of the ways that we are destroying our world before the apocalypse, while we should be trying to save it. If you look at plastic packaging through the four lenses of “The Compass”, it is all bad. I will give a short explanation.
      N: plastic kills animals, ruins the environment and creates pollution.
      E: To manufacture plastic, you need thousands of factories across the globe, and that is a source of people making money. However, factories cannot keep manufacturing plastic forever, and when they finally shut down or run out of the resources because they’ve overused them, than the economy will crash and cause a major financial crisis because manufacturing plastic takes up at least 2% of the world’s industrial GDP.
      S: Plastic is bad for the community because if adults keep using plastic then throwing it away, then the children are brought up using plastic and throwing it away and it will go on for future generations.
      W: Obviously, plastic is unhealthy if ingested, and in this way kills many animals each year.

    Hi 6SS,

    I would help people have better manners because a lot of people are really rude so people at NIST never have good effect on each other because no one is nice no onee really ever even says hello to each other the just walk past. Also when they get given food they just point at it and then walk away! At the table everyone is so rude they never remember to close their mouth!!

    People have no respect for each other and their privacy they just touch others things and then push each other and get in to a fight for no reason really and then they get in trouble and say that they have done nothing!!

    Cheers,

    Billy

      I think your revolution idea would be a good one, Billy. My maid says that International school kids are more ruder than Thai school kids because when she goes to NIST she always sees kids being rude and disrespectful. On the contrary, Thai school kids are always nice, disciplined and hardworking, not like International School slackers.

      • January 18, 2012 at 8:17 pm

        That is true. Its because they were brought up a different way compared to the International school kids like us.

        I agree with you Vin, but does your point fit all the Thai school kids? Your point might ostracize some other rude Thai kids

    Hi everyone!

    If I had to start a revoulution in bangkok, I want a revolution for littering. For one reason, the scene is horrible all the time because people don’t put litter on the bin. I always smell something disgusting when I walk the streets. But also when I go to school I see people throwing away stuff espicially secondaries. There the one who says to us to stop it, but they don’t act it. Today, I picked up litter on the field with Mr.Sundae and Rika. We really was disappointed how people were littering and how it was terrible to see litter all over on our beautiful field. Also we even have a rule not to litter on the field and it surprised me people won’t following it. This also is affecting the enviorment and we need to do about this.

    For this revolution, I want to have a strict rule about it and also I think it will be good if we show them how we should be responsible for littering our school and picking up the litter. Maybe people will be ashamed of themselves and help picking up the litter at the end.

    See you,

    Vicky

    • Caitie : )
      January 18, 2012 at 5:17 pm

      Hi Vicky,
      That is very interesting. That is very good thing you help pick up litter!

      • January 18, 2012 at 6:56 pm

        Thank-you Caitie! If this comes true can you help me?

        • January 18, 2012 at 8:26 pm

          I’ll help you!!!!!!!!

          • January 18, 2012 at 8:28 pm

            Well I agree with you Vicky we should stoop the litering I get so annoyed when I see people doing that. I see Secondary people littering.

          • January 20, 2012 at 8:36 pm

            Thank-you Mari!

            • January 20, 2012 at 8:37 pm

              But first I need to work on myself because I sometimes litter too. People will call me hypocrite if I litter and I tell them not too. I am going to try my best not to litter too.

        • Caitie : )
          January 19, 2012 at 5:49 pm

          YES!!!

    • January 18, 2012 at 8:06 pm

      Hey Vicky and 6SS,

      I totally agree with you because we don’t want our community to be like a bad future of Thailand and I think it is very bad for people just to litter and leave it for other people to pick it up. Even worse if they just leave it there and never bother to pick it up. I think this littering problem causes the smell and the air to get polluted. Imagine if every single country people knew how to put a garbage into the right place or every single country followed this rule and there was no garbage lying on the floor at all, it would be so clean and it will feel much better. The problem in Thailand is because the weather is already bad and when it is dirty it’s just disgusting. I don’t know if other people feel it too but when the weather is cool everything becomes much cleaner but I also think it is because we feel good or we think possitve about the weather or enjoy it. Compare yourself from a burning hot football match and sitting in a air conditioning room relaxing and listening to music. The difference is all the sweat and the icky smelly body but if you are sitting in a perfectly cool room it is as clean and perfect as ever. Here in Thailand like Vicky said the streets are already pretty disgusting and smelly because of smoke, the candy wrappers and the worse, cigars. Which I think the weather in Thailand is bad enough, why make it worse? So I think people should clean up after themselves instead of relying on someone to pick it up. I don’t think it is that hard to get out of your butt and walk to the bin and drop it in. But some people still cannot aford to do it. So I think people should stop polluting this place and being responsible for there own mess.

    Hi 6SS,

    It would be to stop people from throwing rubbish on the floor because it has been affecting NIST’s reputation. It is also making global warming. It also just not pleasant walking down the street because most of the stuff around is trash. If I changed it would help NIST’s reputation to be known as a clean school.

    • January 18, 2012 at 5:57 pm

      Hi Zola,

      How would you stop people in our school from throwing rubbish onto the floor?

    • January 18, 2012 at 6:58 pm

      Hi Zola! I totally agree with you! I have the same idea of this so at school I think we should discuss about it!

    • 19vint
      January 19, 2012 at 9:36 pm

      Perhaps you should create a system of punishment for people who litter, a punishment that will make them care more about the earth. For example, you could have them clean up the litter in school, then move into the soi to clean and then spreading around to this area. That is just one example.

    Hi,

    If I had to start a revolution at Nist I would boycott the school cafeteria. And change the school cafeteria to the old school cafeteria we had. Because I don’t really like this cafeteria’s food and I know there’s a lot of people who don’t like it either. I would make people stop eating the school lunch and bring their own lunch. and I would try to convince the school principals that the cafeteria is not very good. So then the school principals would fire the cafeteria and bring back the old cafeteria!

    Caitie

      January 18, 2012 at 5:50 pm

      Hi Caitie,
      I would keep the elementary cafeteria the same way as now, because we can have as much food as we want, but I think that the food is not fresh and that the food that is supposed to be warm often is cold when you get it.

      Hannah

      • January 18, 2012 at 6:30 pm

        I agree I think they make the food and then preheat it, but the food should be hot and fresh.

      • January 18, 2012 at 7:00 pm

        I agree with Hannah. When I first came to school and ate cafeteria lunch I had a cold often. We actually discussed about this at the Health and Safety group and people think they will be aware of it. If you have anymore problems please tell the Health and Safety members.

    • January 18, 2012 at 5:55 pm

      Hi Caitie,

      Could you please explain what is ‘old cafeteria’?

      • January 18, 2012 at 7:19 pm

        Hi, Andrea
        I think she means the old cafeteria system where you buy food and there was more choices. So I think she means the way the secondaries are eating in the cafeteria.

        • January 18, 2012 at 7:36 pm

          Thanks, Vicky!

    • January 18, 2012 at 8:50 pm

      I tottaly agree

    • 19vint
      January 19, 2012 at 9:24 pm

      Hi Caitie,
      I totally agree with you. At last, someone thinks like me about this! I quit the meal plan in year 5 because the ‘new’ cafeteria system’s food is not as good as the old cafeteria because even though there were little food of each choice, there were many different choices. The new system limits the choices for us but gives all the privileges to the secondaries. This would be a good revolution to start, and you should consider actually trying it because many people dislike the new system!

    If I had to start a revolution, I would make it about the environment, because when I breathe in the air of bangkok, I cannot breathe in fresh air, but polluted air, and if we had more trees, we would breathe in less polluted, and fresher air. I wouldn’t make the revolution just in school, but also everywhere else in bangkok.

      Are you writing about the environment or the cafeteria?

        I am writing about the environment, but I replied to Caitie’s comment.

    • January 18, 2012 at 7:24 pm

      I agree with you, Hannah! When I first came to Bangkok, I thought, ‘this place stinks! I want to go back to Korea again!’ But I met lots of new friends so now I really like Bangkok. Even though I like it here, when I breathe in the air of bangkok, I always worry about Thailand’s future. How will you plant more trees though Hannah?I really care about this and I really want to help!

    Hi,
    If you were told you had to start a revolution at NIST or in this area of Bangkok in order to improve things, what would it be? What would you change and why?
    If we had to start a revolution at NIST I would Stop people from throwing rubbish everywhere, i has been effecting NIST for a long time and it is not pleasant too, because when visitors come to school and they see trash all over the place they would think that the kids here are very lazy. Instead of just throwing plastic bottles everywhere we can recycle them, if we have been throwing stuff in the bin then recycle it global warming wouldn’t be this worse.
    Pan

    • Hannah
      January 18, 2012 at 5:59 pm

      I agree with Pan, and I want to add on, that if people come to NIST they would probably see our school as a hypocrite, because we are always making presentations that the world should stop polluting but they are not even taking care of their own school.

      Hannah

      • January 18, 2012 at 6:22 pm

        We always say take care of the environment, don’t litter or recycle while people set such a bad example and we keep on doing the same thing and people still continue doing it.

    Hi 6ss,
    If I was going to start a revelotion it would be about people to use a transportation that would help make less pollution such as BTS, Bus, MRT,trains, or the subway. To be better you could use electric cars instead because now car specialists are making electric cars and if you went to the BOI fair I know that chevrolet has one new electric car that can work already. And the reason that I am doing this is because well I think most of you have been next to a traffic jam in sukhumwit thats probably like your’re smoking.

    January 18, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    If I had to start a revolution at NIST I would change the food in the cafeteria to be better, tastier and healthier because I think that the cafeteria food isn’t very good and sometimes people are eating nothing for lunch. I would do this by getting another food company to cook the food instead of epicure. It would also be better for NIST because is the food was really good more people would sign up for the meal plan that way NIST would make more money.

    • January 18, 2012 at 5:59 pm

      Hi Stefan,

      Since people’s tastes are different, how can you be sure that everyone is happy with the food?

      • Pan
        January 18, 2012 at 8:14 pm

        Maybe we can do a survey of what kind of food people likes the most

  10. January 18, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    Hi 6SS,

    If I had to start a revolution it would be about what students are eating like Jamie Oliver said they eat the bad food and leave the good ones and that is what I see everyday and there is also a huge waste of food, and students end up eating french fries and rice for lunch and then we get sick.

    The problem is that we always have burgers or fries and we should only have them once in a while because that type of food is not healthy for a growing child. Jamie Oliver inspired me in a way to eat better and to also show others how to do it too.

    • January 18, 2012 at 6:04 pm

      Hi Melis,

      What are you going to do about this and how are you going to make this change?

      • January 18, 2012 at 6:17 pm

        I would try to give them healthier choices and show them what’s healthy and what isn’t in a way that will make them understand and listen.

        • January 18, 2012 at 6:19 pm

          What technique do you intend to use?

    • January 18, 2012 at 6:08 pm

      And now so many people are bringing their own lunches because they didn’t like the food in the cafeteria, but it has been getting a bit better since the Health and Safety Committee’s meeting but they should try to improve it more.

    • Hannah
      January 18, 2012 at 6:12 pm

      I think Jamie Oliver also inspired me to eat healthier, because I saw what the adults and children all looked like, and I now know that it is worth a lot to eat healthy food.
      I also have to disagree with Melis, because they always have different food plus a salad bar and every mealtime we have one vegetarian section to eat from.

  11. January 18, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    Hi,
    If I was told to start a revolution, I will try to save soi animals because some of the people are harming them by saying bad words and sometimes they capture them. In NIST, some men are killing the cats. I think we should respect animals like we respect each other because animals are living things too and you should treat them like you want to be treated. People who hate soi animals think that they have bugs that spread to our body but it actually doesn’t harm people. I was feeding one of the soi cats that lived in our apartment for a month but nothing happened. If there’s no cats, how can we catch mouse? If there’s no dogs, who will protect our house??? Animals are important to us in a farmhouse.We shouldn’t let them killed and treated badly. If you badly don’t want soi animals wandering around, contact SCAD and ask them to take them! They vaccinate animals and some people will adopt them! SCAD is a great place to take soi animals. Also it’s good to take them and find their true owners.

    I think I might start my revolution at school because most of the teachers hate them. I need to tell them that they are living things too and they can’t be killed by men. Next, I will start it where soi animals wander around a lot. I really love animals and I can’t let them be injured and left alone without food.

    • January 18, 2012 at 6:03 pm

      Hi Jimin,

      In our school, I think the main problem is the students disturbing the cats. What happens is the cats get scared/stressed out and start biting people. The school then, are mad at the cats for biting the students and want to get rid of them.

      • January 18, 2012 at 6:19 pm

        I agree it’s us that is annoying the cats, though I am not completely on board with the SCAD idea because we shouldn’t just trust them like that what if they might treat the animals badly?

        • January 18, 2012 at 7:37 pm

          Hi Melis,

          I know what you mean but I have been to SCAD and they treat the animals really well.

      • January 18, 2012 at 7:14 pm

        I agreee with Andrea, Jimin and Melis. Cats aren’t biting with no reason. I know cats are clever at things. Once I saw people pouring water on cats so I stopped them. I thought they were very unwise. Cats are biting because they think people are going to hurt them. We really the nist people to care not only humans but animals.

        • January 18, 2012 at 7:31 pm

          Hi Jimin!

          I agree with you. I really think we should respect everything in the world and try to damage that. But I think there are soi cats in our school that likes the way in our school so I don’t think we should bring them to SCAD. There are people who hate cats here but there are people who takes care of cats too!

      • Pan
        January 18, 2012 at 8:16 pm

        They think it’s cool to chase cats around

        • Pan
          January 18, 2012 at 8:35 pm

          And they also probably don’t like the cats, also last your there was a group of people taking care of the cats where called the cat ladies, it was good that they where taking care of the cats but when the boys like Mikas in 6Gd Came around to touch the cat or tease the cat people they would start chasing Mikas and those other people around so i turned into a game. The boys keep on annoying them because they want the cat people to chase them.
          Pan

          • January 20, 2012 at 9:33 pm

            Pan, can I correct you to say that our name was not cat ladies but that was the name the boys gave us.

      • January 19, 2012 at 7:47 am

        Hi Andrea,
        I agree with you. Some students try to touch the cats and they try to get attention from the cats. So the cats bite them. We shouldn’t disturb them by trying to find them.

    • 19vint
      January 19, 2012 at 9:31 pm

      I agree with you that we should not let soi animals wander around the streets and become potential roadkill, but keeping them as pets is really bad as well because you are treating the animals as inferior beings. People have to treat animals as human beings, for once!! If someone just took you to their house and kept you their forever, treating you like a non-human, would you like it? I think we should just rescue soi animals and put them in the wild where they should be, close to nature and the natural order, instead of keeping them as things in your house to cheer you up.
      you must also try to “step into their shoes”, meaning that you should see things from the animals’ perspective as well.

    If I had to start a revolution it would be for everybody to have a healthy balance but i wouldn’t do something like Jamie Oliver (as in cook healthy stuff), I would do looking at what people do and if its unhealthy I would recommend healthy things to eat. I want to change this because some people really don’t well, they don’t eat enough healthy things. So I want to do this for the people that are suffering from this in Thailand.
    If I was actually doing this people would think I’m crazy, but I’m not. People don’t deserve to be like this.

    Never stop trying

    • January 18, 2012 at 7:17 pm

      Hi Yasmin,

      People really should eat healthy stuff more often though I think Thailand is a place where people eat healthy food. I always see people eating vegetitables and more. Also Thai food mostly are very healthy and I think I don’t see lots of hamberger shops here. But I do agree with you Yasmin. Maybe people should improve more about healthy choices.

    Hello 6SS,

    If I had to start a revolution in the country I would make a revolution about pollution because in Thailand we have many cars that we don’t actually need. What I would do to not make so much pollution and global warming in the country I would get those carriages that men’s carry from the two sides that they used to have in the olden times and so that won’t make global worming but it could also make Thailand the first country to use old modern transportation in new modern times. There is another cool idea that thought to save global worming is to change the roads to a horse road where horses could run and make us ride on them to where we want to go. My mom gave me an idea too she said to use solar energy cars that use’s the sun’s power to move along. Another way is to get bicycle roads to ride bicycles too.

    This will make or country a better place to live in. I want to be like Jamie Oliver and actually make a change to the way we live.

    If I had to start a revolution it would be something that would cause massive change in this country. I would want to make the health and education better. To do that, however, I must change the system of government because the current government tolerates failures and bad things happening and that is not good so they must be kicked out. When I have control of the government of Thailand, I would improve the schools so they have good technology and resources like NIST instead of being only one-floor one-room buildings without AC. In fact, I would model the schools my government builds on NIST. Because of my new system of education for Thai schools, everyone will get a good and fair education growing up.

    I noticed that there is a lot of rubbish around Bangkok and the canals and rivers are dirty, so I will try to make them clean using the best filter technology available. The water will be clean and unpolluted, resulting in more thriving, flourishing life.

    Next, I would make a change about smoking in this country. Every year, millions upon millions of people are killed by tobacco products, because of the tar and nicotine inside of them. Cigarettes and cigars etc literally turns the smoker’s brain into tar and damages their lungs.

    Many people smoke in Thailand, even though they know it is bad for themselves and others. If anyone is caught smoking, they must pay a fine of 670,000 Baht for smoking 4 or less cigarettes(and other tobacco products), and 999,000 for 5 or more cigarettes(and other tobacco products).

    If they smoke in a place where there are non-smokers above the age of 18, they face eviction from their place of residence and a 10-year prison term, where they will be served unhealthy food. However, if there people smoke in a place where there are people below 18 years of age, they face a 28 year prison term and a fine of 2,000,000 Baht. I have been in place where people smoke, and trust me, no one likes the second hand smoke of a smoker because second hand smoke can kill non-smokers like smokers.

    Tobacco products, (including cigarettes), along with drugs, and any harmful ingestion chemical will be banned and made illegal. Anyone found in the possession of these face a 45 year prison term, and if they still revert back to the harmful chemicals after they are released, they face a 50 year prison term. That is the best case scenario. The bad case scenario is that if they give the drugs or cigarettes etc to others, they face capital punishment and execution. After all, drugs and cigarettes etc kill, and by giving them to others you are basically killing them. No one has the right to kill or harm another person.

      I have to disagree a little bit with you Vin, because some people are addicted to smoking and drugs, so I don’t think you should fine too much money and time in jail.

      • January 18, 2012 at 9:54 pm

        Sorry Madhav but I have to disagree with you. Drugs have been illegal for many years in different countries around the world. Drugs are actually dangerous for you. Once you start drugs you get addicted to it then you just go out of control and you start to go crazy. Also they use drugs to earn money so they don’t try to change. These are criminal acts prohibited by law. Some countries sentence drug dealers to death. So as far as drugs, I think 45 year prison term is not enough, and life sentence or death penalty are worthy for consequence.
        But for smoking, 45 year prison term is not appropriate. If I were to start a same revolution as VIn, I would increase tobacco tax to 1500Baht so no one except rich people would dare to buy.

      Hi,

      I think I need to start a new revolution. That revolution would be to stop Vin’s revolution. I agree with you that it’s not very good that people are polluting their bodies with that stuff but I think killing people will be a bit harsh… just a little :0 I think if people get caught selling drugs they should go to jail for a short time Maybe like 3 years.

        Drugs and smoking kill. You might not know this, but tobacco has a very lethal and dangerous drug called nicotine which turns the smoker and the people who receives the second hand smoke’s brains into tar. No one has the right to kill another person.

          Vim, to reply to your reply which was a reply to my reply…I know that smoking is bad but you just said that no one has the right to kill another person. But in your original posting one of your punishments was death.
          Why does the government get to kill people who “kill”
          people? Aren’t they also then killing people? And then who gets to kill the executioner?

            The person who gives drugs or cigarettes to another person is the murderer. The victim(person who received cigarettes or drugs) must be avenged.

              You know what, i just thought of a system of punishment where there is no executioner. The executioners are themselves. If they stay in prison and go through a rehabilitation program and finally quit, they are free to go. However, if they reject the rehabilitation program, the criminal has to go through a ‘rat run’, and if they past the rat run, they are free to go, but they must swear that they must not smoke.

              The rat run will go something like this. First, the criminal is dropped into a pit of honey and they must swim to the other side of the pit before the honey pit’s floor opened and sharp metal spikes will come out. If they make it past the honey, they must crawl on a log full of red ants over a pit full of red ants. If they past that, they must walk across a giant metal grill, meaning a hot metal floor with metal rods like a grill heated to high temperatures. After that, if they survive, they are in a room where there is a door on the other side. However, in the room, there are 4 slightly starved lions. Then, they must climb a cactus tree onto a high platform. From that platform, they will climb another cactus tree onto another platform. That repeats for one or two times. After that, they must swim through a water pit teeming with lots of crocodiles.
              If they survive the entire rat run, they are free to go.

              However, I think many criminals will choose the rehabilitation program, so no worries. >:)

                Hi

                I think even though they do the rehabilitation program they will probably get out of jail and do it again. What will you do to these people who keep on committing crime?

            • Caitie:)
              January 20, 2012 at 7:42 pm

              Maybe there are two murders. I think no one should kill no one. And drugs and cigarettes should not be sold.

              • January 23, 2012 at 7:09 pm

                Hi Caitie,

                After I read your comment, I agree with you in some parts. I understand in Western countries the death penalty is not used quite often these days because many people think like Caitie no one should take other people’s life.

    • January 19, 2012 at 7:42 pm

      Hi vin i agree with you to stop smoking and stop the use of tobacco and other horible stuff.
      Going back to your first revolution it would take a lot of money and planning and i would like to know more about how you are going to change the system of the Thai Government. I am very interested in your comment because what you are sying is very true.

      Bye 🙂

        I know lots of people in Thailand want to help make local schools better, so I would start a campaign to help the schools. Or, I could just wait for the election time and get as many supporters as I can.

        For the money to build the schools, I will increase industry and farming etc. and make it better with Thailand’s current budget and that will result in more money for the country, just as we talked today about investing in building Nuclear-powered cars. (Nuclear energy is the Future! 😉 even though it has risks.) With the help of some investors, we will have good industry and farming etc. and then the cycle keeps going on until we make billions and industry and farming is 65% of Thailand’s annual GDP.
        I will then use that money for the country.

    i think that i would like to change the cafeteria food system because i hate it and i dont think its cooked well i find it quite cold and most of my freinds encluding me quite the meal program because we wouldnt eat every lunch time.

    im not saying that the foods not healthy im just saying that i dont think its cooked well.

    so if they would cook it longer and keep it warm it could taste my oppinion is that the caffeteria food isnt good.

    but the secondaries have better food than us plus they have better choices so i dont find it fare that they get good food and we dont.

    • January 19, 2012 at 7:46 pm

      Victor do you even take the food? I think the food they give us is quite good compare to some school`s.

    If I had to start a revolution it would be about the pollution in Bangkok. Because Bangkok has a lot of cars,vendors producing smoke by roasting food and lots of littering. I would plant more trees. To help make the air clean and to make more shade so people don’t have to buy cars they can just walk or use the sky train/ MRT because the air will be clean and the whether will be better than now. Also I will arrange places for vendors to sell food so they don’t have to move every where to sell food. I will also make a rule that each vendor has to have their own cooker hood so they could clean all the smoke they produced.

  17. January 18, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    I totally agree with Victor. I also want to change the cafeteria system. When I used to take the cafeteria food, there were not much choices and many food were cold. Many lunch time I ate nothing. That is the reason I am taking home lunch now.

    Also I see many secondary people choosing food very badly. There is not much colour in the plate. We learned to have colour in the plate at Kanchanaburi and respect people and food but secondarys can not do that!!! Also Elemtery kids do the same thing too. Some people say that the cafeteria food is awful and they take some food that they don’t like and don’t take one bite and throw it away. We should respect the food and people who are trying hard to make the food.I learned to respect food and people when I started this year.

    • January 18, 2012 at 8:45 pm

      I don’t totally agree with Victor but I used to.

    Hi everyone,

    If I had to choose to start a revolution in Bangkok I would change the street venders who take up space in little roads, and cars which park in a non parking space. When I go to my cousins house at soi 12, I have noticed that the soi is really small, and still street venders sell things with table and chairs. I takes up almost half the road, and so it is really annoying to drive through the street. Another thing is when some people park on the road, which is also blocking the way of driving, and once again it is hard to get through.

    I would like to make a fine for parking in non parking spaces and street venders blocking the roads. The consequence for doing that is paying 2,000,0 baht, because if you make very little money people will still do it, but if you make it a lot of money than people will less likely to do it.

    To be fair with everyone I think I should make another parking space, and maybe a little street where no one goes, for the street vender to sell their stuff, then it will become a market so people would go their and it would be more known.

    Hi everyone!

    If I would have to start a revolution at this school I will try to teach people how to use the internet properly, so there will be less people gossiping and making lists of how popular they are so people’s feelings won’t be hurt and they won’t need to have problems between friendship and other things.

    By doing this it might be hard but I could make groups like “Anti Gossip Group” or something like “Gossip’s Going Down”. Also I can say to people who I spot gossiping “stop gossiping” or “Can you please stop talking about other people” or “Let’s play a game called stop gossiping”(You need to be a bit strict to other people otherwise they won’t get what you are trying to tell them).

    I want to make NIST a bullying-free school.

    • January 19, 2012 at 4:48 pm

      How are you going to make students stop bullying each other? But this would be hard because students are always teasing each other and calling names.

      • 19vint
        January 19, 2012 at 5:12 pm

        As Yuki said, you must be strict to people otherwise they won’t be able to change.

      • January 23, 2012 at 8:32 pm

        I already answered that question above.

  20. January 19, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    But being strict wouldn’t be nice and it’s hard to put a stop to it because students are always calling each other names.

    • 19vint

      It doesn’t matter if it isn’t nice. Children must learn to be disciplined and concentrated or else they will never be able to graduate from a college or a university which results in them not getting a job. If they do not get a job, they cannot earn enough money to support themselves and their family. Think of all the wealthiest people in the world. Most of them had very hard and harsh childhoods, which made them tough and disciplined. If you are brought up playing video games or going on Facebook everyday, you will not become a successful person. Think of Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Leonardo Da Vinci, or Sam Walton. Did they have video games or anything like that to play with? No.

    • January 23, 2012 at 8:39 pm

      So are you saying that we have to be nice to everyone every time?. I don’t think the people who are bulling won’t learn if we be nice to them every single time.

      • January 24, 2012 at 5:04 pm

        Well Yuki I think we should attract people like what jamie Oliver did we can say jokes, we can wear funny costume. ………. and so on and on and on. We are making them laugh but saying something very important.

  21. January 19, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    If I could start a revolution i would start a revolution to make NIST a more tidy place. Because
    some seccondary just leave junk lying around campus. Some people here at nist go to
    Pattaya or Huhahin to clean there beach or a park but why. Why do we go to far away places and clean up when we cant even clean our stuff? I want people to wake up and start seeing the place around us and try to help and not granted that someone else would pick it up.

    I normaly am sad when i see a huge mess at school and i am walking to another class or am in break because then i want to play or i need to go some were else so that makes me sad when i cant help sometimes.
