Last year I read an article, “Someone added ‘googling’ as a skill on CV, landed an interview. See viral tweet “. After reading the article and following the original writer’s tweet on Twitter, I saw mixed reaction’s from the Twitter community. Some were praising it, on the other hand; some criticising it. Recently, a friend asked me to make a resume for them as they come from a commerce background and are fresher; I struggled to fill the space in a single-page resume based on their information.
A couple of days before a friend of mine attempted an English test. They struggled with it. So when I saw that test, I was comfortable with it. Because of all this, I remember how I started learning English. As i came from a town people didn’t use English for verbal communication, even in English medium schools. So the start of my journey to learning English was interesting. When I was a kid aged 6-8, I found an old photocopied notes of English grammar, from which my mama used to study.
I graduated this year. A few friends of mine and I ran a student community in our college to create a good culture for everyone on campus. We tried our best the run the community however, due to covid, we were not able to do what we wanted to do initially. As we were visiting college last time for collecting the documents and we had few stickers and t-shirts from GDSC for distribution, my friend Akash and I decided to organise the last event before leaving.
I wanted to copy my public annotations to a different group. However, there is no option available on the website for the same. Furthermore, there were more than 60 annotations, so I did not want to annotate & highlight the same page again. So I started looking for solutions online; I found an article by web.hypothes.is/help Copy Annotations to a New Course . It is intended for teachers; however, I wanted to make it work for myself.
I have a habit of writing in books while reading them with a pencil, as I try to capture the thoughts which arise when I read the book. But, as nowadays we spend of our time on the internet, I wanted something so that I can keep my throughout written on that webpage, I tried various websites. Then I found Hypothesis – Web & PDF Annotation . It made my life a bit easier.
On 3 August, I received a message that I had taken a booster vacation dose at a place 60km away from my home. But I never went there to take a vaccination. I wanted to take a dose as my expected dose date was already passed. However, no private hospitals vaccinate people for a booster dose in my locality. When I searched the Cowin portal, no hospital was available in the city.
When we communicate online, the person on another side can not see us, so we must be careful how we talk to others to avoid confusion/misunderstandings. As per my conviction, I think people who are relatively new on the internet should read the blogs/posts/ article for the same.https://dontasktoask.com/ https://www.nohello.com/?m=1 http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html https://heyguys.cc/ https://www.gerv.net/hacking/how-to-ask-good-questions/ https://blog.citl.mun.ca/instructionalresources/netiquette/ http://www.shakthimaan.com/downloads/glv/presentations/mailing-list-etiquette.pdf
In my childhood, in the rainy season, when I returned after my playtime, my slipper used to be full of mud and soil enough to plant a sapling. However, due to climate change, we are now observing a change in weather patterns, like delays in the rainy season with variations in quantity. In covid times I was in my hometown, I used to think that rising oxygen demand was temporary. Still, it can become permanent if we do not start taking against climate change and deforestation.
Today twitter sent me a notification “Do you remember when you joined Twitter? I do! #MyTwitterAnniversary” It’s been ten years since I created this account on Twitter; somehow, I was able to keep it alive without getting banned. In these ten years, many things have changed. Orkut does not exist today, and Facebook is not a cool thing anymore. I still remember the day when I asked a friend of mine to open an account on Facebook by going to a cyber cafe.
A couple of years ago, I had a conversation with my friend that I read an article/ thread in which the user wrote he had a conversation with his friend about buying something and then was surprised as he was getting ads for the thing he wanted to buy on google. It happened to him a lot of times. So we were discussing whether it is accurate or a conspiracy theory.
