5 cool things by Mer Chanpolydet


Body Pillows
How do you usually make yourself comfortable when it’s bedtime?  Conventionally, the only thing people use is a cushion to support their head, but is that really enough?  The body pillow may be the true key to a pleasant night’s sleep.  After spending all day propped up studying my textbooks and playing sports at school, my back usually aches.  Sleeping with my long, soft body pillow helps relieve the pain and allows me to sleep as well as I please.

Wireless mouse
These days, when we use the word mouse we’re usually referring to a small electronic device that can be plugged into a computer to control the cursor.  The newest update in computer mouse technology is the wireless mouse, which has grown in popularity in comparison to its increasingly obsolete, inextricably tethered cousin. Using the wireless mouse makes it more convenient to control your computer’s cursor, because you don’t have to sit close to the monitor to do it.

Swings

You may think it odd that I’ve chosen the humble swing as one of my five cool things for this week.  Whenever I feel sad, lonely or disappointed, the first thing I want to do is go for a swing, because the higher I swing the further I can see and the bigger the world seems.  The gentle arc makes me feel relaxed, even joyful.  I am in constant motion, the breeze is in my hair, and my troubles fall one by one to the ground.

Bike Rides at dawn
Dawn is perhaps the best time of day for slumber, and most people prefer to spend the early hours in bed.  I’m a champion sleeper myself, but lately I’ve been getting up early to take morning bike rides while the air is still cool.  I get exercise and avoid the pollution, noise, and crowds of midday Phnom Penh.  The world looks more peaceful at dawn.  Moreover, getting up early is a good habit and gives you time to fit in some exercise, like running, biking, or simply walking.  Whenever I go biking at dawn, I feel so cool, literally and figuratively.

Warcraft

Warcraft is an online computer game in which opposing players command virtual armies, waging war against one another in a giant virtual world.  Every day, thousands of players around the world take part in the riveting, never-ending battles.  Players can also ally with each other, and wage massive military campaigns with a variety of different warriors.  Whenever I feel stressed or bored, I turn to Warcraft.  It’s the most entertaining video game I’ve ever played.
