Now I feel like I should look for my name on the local papers 😟
Apparently 57% of the people who checked my LinkedIn profile work in journalism.
But I have never worked in journalism.
My job has nothing to do with journalism.
I can't think of any classmates of mine who ended up working in journalism.
Rule #1 of business emails: If the sender marked it as “high priority”, it’s not important at all.
(If the topic is actually important, you know that the subject line will speak for itself. The “high priority” flag is used only for self-aggrandizement.)
I follow the #Google Doodle RSS feed and it's a pity that almost all the doodles are visible only in a limited number of countries.
For instance, tomorrow Google Indonesia will honour Usmar Ismail, who is considered the pioneer of Indonesian cinema. But why don't they use the doodle globally?
I appreciated learning about him, and I guess many people would do as well. Why pass such a great opportunity to put a spotlight on important figures from all around the world?

There should be a catch-all term for all those household behaviours that you learn to do in one way (because that's how they do it in your family) and then, as an adult, you learn that there are people who do it the opposite way. Like:
• Toilet paper: Over or under?
• Shoes in the house: Remove at the entrance or keep them?
• Newly bought clothes: Wash before wearing or not?
• Cutlery in the dishwasher: Handles up or down?
• Cooking spaghetti: Is it helpful to add olive oil to the water or not?
