from a person who has lost almost everything (exaggerated, of course).
So, confession time, as my previous sentence said, I’m very VERY clumsy. If something’s not attached to me, there is a very big chance that I will misplace it, forget is somewhere, left it at the restaurant toilet, and so on. It’s just last month I had someone returned my backup phone I left in a restaurant toilet 6 months ago. Fortunately I had my email listed on the phone, but unfortunately I didn’t do every precaution there was on that phone as I did in my primary phone (which I had left about three times in three different places and got it returned fortunately every time). If I did, maybe it could be returned sooner. However, I did have my email listed there, and the founder managed to email me.
I write this as a check list next time I reinstall/ change my phone, as well to remind everyone not to be me.
There are a lot more things you can do of course (suggestion welcome!), and I think I double some things here and there and maybe not to your likings, but one of these is definitely better than none!
Mostly for Android. I want to write about automaton with Tasker and others as well but haven’t managed to do so. This is it for now!
This is a part of an ever-updating post, but the first part is alright so I upload it
As a person with an overall privileged condition: healthy body, no allergy (anymore), have my own saving so I can pay something upfront first then being reimbursed, as well having a laidback and nrima (Javanese, lit: accepting, which sometime’s not a good characteristic to have) personality, although I tried to give my suggestion in accessibility and accommodation whenever I can, especially in regards to other people or participants in an event I’m an organiser of, I’ve never really given a thought about this enough about when I’m the one being accommodated for.
After meeting a lot more people in a wider spectrum and having more knowledge and discussions about accessibility and being asked on what kind of accessibility access and accommodation I or people like “me” actually want, I did some hard contemplation and some more reading (read: tabs in high tens). I will give some of my thought and experiences below.
(Making a note for a friend who’s in charge of accessibility and accommodations, hence a few of my notes for her sprinkled around)
I don’t know why, seems like my writings lately are mostly about maps? I wonder… Anyway, tonight and yesterday night were the peak of Perseid Meteor Shower this year (mostly yesterday, but today should be quite fine). As I live far from civilisation the city this year, the result of the quick sighting I’d done last night was quite nice. Though I didn’t venture far from the flat, I could see a lot of shooting stars (basically the shower part) coming from the east (where Perseid was located these time of the year before the dawn), and I believe there’s a fireball too!
With this infographic, I have benefits of not needing to write about the meteor shower and not needing to write a lot as this article seemed long enough already
As a student in the UK, when we applied for Tier 4 UK VISA, it’s written that the expected monthly budget for London is about 1200 GBP. That’s also how much I get from my scholarship. So, how’s the reality? Is that amount enough? Those are valid questions, especially if you’re planning to bring your family with you. Believe it or not, if you’re planning your budget well, you can actually use that amount for a small family, with decent meals and everything. I have usually saved about half of my allowance each month (and use the saving for emergency conference travel fund, normal travel fund, and do leisure activities in between). Everyone has their own way to manage their own budget. Your life is your life, you’re the one who knows it best. Learning from how other people handle theirs, make it suitable for yours. For note, this is a compilation of things I’ve done and things people suggested to do to keep your budget low and living fuller (hopefully) in the UK.
