Someone being down-to-earth does not mean you can take them for granted.
Yes I’m working on assignments. Quite obvious, isn’t it?
My friend says that it is a rarity in his friends circle that someone has passion and time to review products and write about it.
But I don’t really do that, all I do is find errors and complain. Suchanass I am, no?
Sometimes it is so perfect that it feels like unreality. If only…Sigh.
Europe is beautiful, just saying.
The follow redirect link from my email is broken. Also, the display pictures don’t get refreshed in the mobile app.
I don’t understand what I gain by complaining about all these bugs I find, But yes I do like keeping a log of these observations of mine.
What if there was no google, no e-books and no e-journals?
Die, die bitch die..for asking that question. Just DIE.
with fingers crossed…
They promise not to screw it up. We’ll see!
When someone comments a smiley, the notification tab says ” ” instead of the smiley itself.
Such careless mistakes.
“Okay google, call ….” The auto voice search doesn’t work yet? Fine.
So the new hangout chrome extension/phone app, everyone’s been going gaga over this right after #io13. No? Ok.
This app is good in a few ways, comfortable, no more separate messengers for gtalk, gplus, gmail plugins and blah. I’m in my see-no-positive-notice-all-the-negatives mode. Forgive me.
But this seems flawed in so many other ways to me. I know, I hate myself when I complain about Google. But you know I really need to get over the “Google is God, don’t you dare talk anything about it” feel.
The extension on chrome goes online, gets connected even when I don’t want this to happen. Where is the offline mode?
The app on my tablet still says “gtalk” These guys haven’t named the app yet? I have a Nexus, so I get updates straight from Google in case you are thinking it’s my device that is at fault.
The app shows “seen upto <message>”. OHGODWHY. I have no idea how many people are going to disown me after knowing that I don’t reply for a while even after I see their messages.
No ninja mode? What the hell man. I want ninja mode, I want ninja mode. I want my invisibility cloak back. Oh wait, there’s no online/offline options so how is it possible to have a ninja mode. I want online/invisible modes back.
So if I want myself cut off from hangouts app then I need to cut off from the whole internet world or just uninstall the app? #NO I won’t. Find a solution to this Google. Pretty please, for me ^_^
For the app’s sake, please sync my phone app and chrome extension. I send a message from my phone, I can’t seem to see this when I turn on my laptop. Oh wait, I think this is because I cannot remember my passphrase for syncing chrome. But why you no let me reset my passphrase easily Google? I forgot ok. It was some two years back, I forgot the phrase now. I remember my passwords, not this passphrase. Why can’t I login to chrome with just my password?
Google, no matter what I’m still so much in love with you. You should know that I want to work with you, just don’t forget this.
<edit> Those emojis are funny. I want my smileys back.
Have a nice day you all!
Why Society Still Needs Feminism
Because to men, a key is a device to open something. For women, it’s a weapon we hold between our fingers when we’re walking alone at night.
Because the biggest insult for a guy is to be called a “pussy,” a “little bitch” or a “girl.” From here on out, being called a “pussy” is an effing badge of honor.
Because last month, my politics professor asked the class if women should have equal representation in the Supreme Court, and only three out of 42 people raised their hands.
Because rape jokes are still a thing.
Because despite being equally broke college kids, guys are still expected to pay for dates, drinks and flowers.
Because as a legit student group, Campus Fellowship does not allow women to lead anything involving men. Look, I know Eve was dumb about the whole apple and snake thing, but I think we can agree having a vagina does not directly impact your ability to lead a
Because it’s assumed that if you are nice to a girl, she owes you sex — therefore, if she turns you down, she’s a bitch who’s put you in the “friend zone.” Sorry, bro, women are not machines you put kindness coins into until sex falls out.
Because only 29 percent of American women identify as feminist, and in the words of author Caitlin Moran, “What part of ‘liberation for women’ is not for you? Is it freedom to vote? The right not to be owned by the man you marry? The campaign for equal pay? Did all that good shit get on your nerves? Or were you just drunk at the time
of the survey?”
Because when people hear the term feminist, they honestly think of women burning bras. Dude, have you ever bought a bra? No one would burn them because they’re freaking
Because Rush Limbaugh.
Because we now have a record number of women in the Senate … which is a measly 20 out of 100. Congrats, USA, we’ve gone up to 78th place for women’s political representation, still below China, Rwanda and Iraq.
Because recently I had a discussion with a couple of well-meaning Drake University guys, and they literally could not fathom how catcalling a woman walking down University Avenue is creepy and sexist.
Could. Not. Fathom.
Because on average, the tenured male professors at Drake make more than the tenured female professors.
Because more people on campus complain about chalked statistics regarding sexual assault than complain about the existence of sexual assault. Priorities? Have them.
Because 138 House Republicans voted against the Violence Against Women Act. All 138 felt it shouldn’t provide support for Native women, LGBT people or immigrant women. I’m kind of confused by this, because I thought LGBT people and women of color were also human beings.
Because a girl was roofied last semester at a local campus bar, and I heard someone say they think she should have been more careful. Being drugged is her fault, not the fault of the person who put drugs in her drink?
Because Chris Brown beat Rihanna so badly she was hospitalized, yet he still has fans and bestselling songs and a tattoo of an abused woman on his neck.
Because out of 7 billion people on the planet, more than 1 billion women will be raped or beaten in their lifetimes. Women and girls have their clitorises cut out, acid thrown on them and broken bottles shoved up them as an act of war. Every second of every day. Every corner of the Earth.
Because the other day, another friend of mine told me she was raped, and I can no longer count on both my hands the number of friends who have told me they’ve been sexually assaulted. Words can’t express how scared I am that I’m getting used to this.
Because a brief survey of reality will tell you that we do not live in a world that values all people equally and that sucks in real, very scary ways. Because you know we live in a sexist world when an awesome thing with the name “feminism” has a weird connotation. Because if I have kids someday, I want my son to be able to have emotions and play dress up, and I want my daughter to climb trees and care more about what’s in her head than what’s on it. Because I don’t want her to carry keys between her fingers at night to
