Work and study Hard

Having a bit of a small family problem - which reminds how hard people can work if they want too have too.

The niece who many have met finished High school a few months back - her last year she averaged 4.0 out of 4.0 grade point average. Slacker!

She's at Uni now - but due to the bad economics etc etc - I've moved the business out of Bangkok leaving her there alone in the big city.

Originally she had a friend sharing a tiny but very clean flat but that girl's family couldn't afford her to be away so now the niece is on her own.

Studies at Uni from 7am to noon Monday to Friday.

Then at 4pm goes to work in a restaurant till 1am Mon - Thursday - and 2am Friday and Saturday to help support herself.

Tough hours - but she's not quitting and I'm pretty proud.

She's lonely at night - like most Thais she likes to share a room - and also like many believes in ghosts and thinks the room is haunted.

But she won't stop - and for that I am very proud. For a very dirt poor Isaan girl she works pretty hard as many do - thought I'd share it as we hear often they are lazy - (bubi not aimed at you) - but many work hard - value education - and try to better themselves.

Maybe there is a kind TD member who will volunteer to stay with her, offering the nice young Lady protection and comfort, in the lonely night hours,

Troll anybody ?

Maybe - the place has good security - cheap - 4500 a month - but to expensive on her own

In Thailand I've seen that if you live in same city as parents - you stay with them, pretty much until your married.
