Yesterday was the last day of summer training course. Students were happy to get the certificates. 2 months have passed. I hope they have learned good things about physics, science, and doing research while they were trained.
Had dinner with the students at Family BBQ pork, a bbq buffet place near Kasetsart intersection. Ate for about 3 hours. Not the healthiest food but we had a good time. It was raining hard throughout.
Rain caused accidents on the roads. Must be careful always. Bad luck can come to you even when you are doing everything right though.
Where did these people come from? Stone age? They don’t understand human rights.
Summer session at TINT is almost over. Just over a week to go. Students are writing their project reports now. This year’s projects are X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence, neutron activation, gemstone irradiation, and thin film etching with fission tracks. There are some nice mini projects as well, such as อุปนิสัยผู้จะประสบความสำเร็จ (translation of Habits of Successful People).
Many students got sick. I got sick myself a couple times. It was nonetheless a good summer session.

Comfort games are like comfort foods. They are something that you can go to almost all the time. It’s what you are familiar with, and feel comfortable playing. They make you feel good. They remove the stress from a long day’s work. Right now my comfort games are StarCraft: Brood War (PC), Football Manager 2008 (PC), and Winning Eleven 7 (PS2). Another favorite is Tetris Attack (SNES), but I haven’t played it in a while.
