I bet you all know what a square, a circle and a rectangle are. They are all regular polygons. But do you know what a polyhedron is? Well it is any three dimensional shape that has four or more faces. Here are the names of some polyhedrons. You might know some of them already:

4 faces tetrahedron

6 faces hexahedron

8 faces octahedron

12 faces dodecahedron

Friends are like a Computer

Mayuree Chaiwort 3rd year English

My friend sent me a short message (SMS) that a good friend is like a computer. The SMS said:

“I enter your life, save you in my heart, format your problem and never delete it”.

I think, if our life is a computer, everyday of our life would be easy. We can delete the problem, can edit a mistake.

But if it is real, no one can develop their life and their brain. Because I think when we try to solve a problem, that make us grow up, if we deleted every problem our life would be ‘shut down’.
