  • The news will find you

    We all use social media as a medium to get news around us. But nowadays, it’s even harder to get those worthy news as clickbait articles, Kardashians, and all the buzz is sitting between you and them. I used to take some breaks from social media. Usually for 2 or 3 days. But when I […]

    My guide to buying things

    When I moved from my parent house and the residential school. I started cooking for myself. And from that time, I’m cooking at least 3 days per week (sometimes you just want to eat outside, you know…) To start cooking from zero, I needed a lot of kitchenware.

    Remote Working: The Untold

    When I was in engineering school, I stumbled upon the idea of remote working. That idea of doing your work from anywhere. It is a dream! Right? That was at least 3 or 4 years ago.
