I got a friend when I went to a graduate school. I, a kind of, liked her, because, with my first judgement, she had a quality that could be my future girlfriend. We were nice to each other. We went shopping together at a few shopping malls we could find in a small town. At that moment, I thought we could get along well.

However, she started being a liar, a very big liar. She missed our appointment twice without initial informing. Both of the times, I kept waiting for her for whole day. We both got the hotspot in our apartment, and also the internet in the devices. When I tried to contact her to ask if she would come or not, she did not provide me any answer. She disappeared from the connection and did not say anything to me. Later, when we meet at the school, she pretended like there was nothing happen.

After that, I felt like, she was not real for me. She had too many reasons to say that everything was not her mistake. It was only because she is the big liar. I felt I was alone for a week and trying to stop myself thinking about her.

We did not talk to each other about half year. Later, we met again in other school in Thailand. We enrolled in the same class with the same teacher. I made a decision to forgive her and became her friend again. I am a guy with a short memory. I did not feel that I am hurt that much anymore.

Later, I knew from the teacher that she told him a bad thing about me, and it was not the truth. The teacher did not know that she was (again) the liar. I was suddenly angry. I told the truth to the teacher. I dis not know if he would whether believe me or not. He asked me to calm down and forgive her.

Right now, I still have to meet her sometimes at the school. I feel like what I am doing is to pretend to be nice. I will never hurt her in turn by telling a lie. I am not good at that and I do not want to be like that. If she asked me for help, okay, I will help, but that does not mean I forgive or forget everything she has done to me, but it is because I think it is the thing that a normal person should do. I cannot feel like nothing had happened between us.

So, what is the song that I should sing for her? I want to sing some alternative rock or punk. Dear the readers, please name me one song.

Get someone else to write your research papers?

I am a very ordinary teacher in a school/program in a large university in Thailand. I also know other teachers from other university. Everyone with this kind of job, the university teachers or lecturers, will have to upgrade themselves to be assistant professor, associate professor, and professor, respectively. Therefore, we read the rule written by the government, about what kind of papers or academic works that we have to submit for the committee to judge or promote us.

The rules say that the academic works could be the research paper or academic paper that got publish in the conference proceedings and journals. They could be the creative work, such as movies or games that have published academic paper supporting them. People I know from other universities walk follow this rules. They could submit their research paper published in conference proceeding to the committee to consider.

However, my university creates their own rule for some reason. They do not allow me and other employees to submit the conference papers, but only papers published in the journals. This makes our life harder than other people in other university.

In fact, there was an Easter egg hidden in this policy.

Some friends told me that many employees bought the research papers with the money about 400-500 USD per a paper. In other words, they hired someone else to write it for them. They did not actually know anything about the paper or even the topic of the paper. After they bought the paper, they submit it to the conference in order to travel around many countries outside Thailand.

Because the president of my university discovered this Easter egg, she believes that most conference papers are not written by the authors appeared on them. This might be the reason that she does not allow anyone to use conference papers to send to the committees in order to be promoted to be an assistant professor, and also other levels.

I do not like the way she thinks though. I have written all conference papers by myself. I have never hired anyone to do it for me, but I lose the chance to use them to submit to the committees and being promote. I am both angry and depress. The president makes the world unfair. Why doesn’t she just get rid of the cheating people who buy the academic work? If she could do it, the honest ones will be able to use their conference papers to get into the higher job position.
