10 Things I Learned as a Digital Nine-to-Fiver
1. You don’t need to
go to school go out of the house to learn something. I know this is a no-brainer but back when the coolest things were diskettes & very thin eyebrows, and the closest thing you can get hold of the internet was a dial-up connection, it’s pretty amazing how you can actually learn courses at the comfort of your home (I love Coursera). I did enjoy my computer classes at 7 in the morning though. haha
2. One computer monitor is not enough. Never enough!
3. Internet and a sturdy laptop are your two bestest friends. You can go anywhere in the world with these two and you’ll live.
4. Cook in less than 10 minutes! I have become a cooking master that 30-minute meals will bow their heads and cry. When you only have a 30-minute break, you’ll learn how to do things you never thought were possible haha
5. How to shut people out, in a good way or bad. Depends on how you look at it haha It is really true that when you get older, you don’t have time for drama.. unless you start the drama yourself hehe
6. Master multi-tasker. It’s both a blessing and a curse! ‘Cause when you get used to doing a lot of things at the same time, you’ll get bored and be slower when you start doing things one at a time. It’s true!
7. DIY Almost everything! Which is a second thought from #1. Everybody knows everything in the internet. Admit it, before you go out and actually look/buy something, you check it online first to know if you can do it on your own hahaha
8. Not all “Bosses” are “Horrible”. Yes! While I have encountered some people who were scarier than a Halloween costume (trying to be nice here), there were more “fun people” I’ve come across and I’m very grateful for that. They’re so fun it doesn’t feel like working at all!
9. Smartily Lazy (If there’s such a word haha) I think what I really mean is I have learned (to prioritize) to do the very important things first so I can get lazy at the end of the day… or in the middle. haha
10. I’m so bad in Geography but I love travelling! I never really thought travelling was for me, until I started it. Now I’m itching to travel again. But please don’t ask me where is this and that, I have a good memory but I’m bad at giving directions… and pointing places on the map. Or use a map haha
