My New Kindle Paperwhite (Day 19 #100HappyDays)

My bro and I have been wanting to buy our own Kindle for quite sometime now. I’ve wanted to rekindle my love for reading, but since I couldn’t care well enough for my own books (or I’m just too OC when it comes to handling a book – I don’t like the pages getting folded accidentally, etc), I decided that the best way to start reading again is through an e-Reader. So, finally, yesterday, we both our own Kindle Paperwhite.

Kindle Paperwhite

I remember back in high school, or even elementary, I frequent the library. No, I’m not the studious type. The books I read weren’t all educational, but mostly entertaining books that feed my imagination… and my vocabulary at the same time. 🙂 I was a member of the Booklover’s Club almost my entire high school life; I was even an officer of the club during my senior year which allowed me to borrow multiple books from the library with ease. I used to love the smell of books, but since I developed some kind of allergy from the ink and paper used before on books that I loved (which is also why I had to stop reading the newspaper), I had to lessen my reading and was stuck with the new, magazine-type ones (Reader’s Digest, Archie Comics, etc).

With the Kindle, I can now read all the books I’ve been longing to finish all these years. Since I’m in this moment in my life where I’m contemplating a career change (still in social media though), the first ebook I decided to read is Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg. It’s all about empowering women to be more ambitious. 🙂 I saw myself agreeing with her viewpoints. We need more women in power. 🙂

I might finally decide to finish the book Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, but I feel like I’ve already found myself. I started reading it when I was at the time of my life when I felt like I lost myself and had to renew my love for me. Reading helped a lot. Maybe finishing the book will help put me in a mindset that’ll prepare me to find love and romance, eh? 😉

Take an IBM exam and Watch the Benefits Pour In

It’s truly amazing how beneficial an IBM test can be to a person’s career and personal growth. IBM has numerous technical exams that can give importance and value to any career. Networking professionals with an IBM certification on their resume will see their career flourish and grow in ways previously unimaginable.

Tests

There are so many fields and technologies to specialize in, each one coming with its own set of skills and knowledge, that choosing just one can certainly be hard. Luckily, many exams contain related information and can be used in multiple fields. Participants can choose to take and stay in this route. IBM exams are sectored into hardware, software, and solution sections. Each section contains multiple exams that can be taken to earn multiple certifications. Building up your resume in this way can give you great strength in a specific area and deem you profitable by companies looking for employees who can administer, manage, or maintain several different programs.

Perhaps the greatest thing about an IBM exam is the training experience. It is ideal for candidates who are lacking large amounts of free time and money. Even for exams that require learning entirely new information, not much time is needed to study, especially with a TestsLive practice exam. Their sample questions come with answers, automatically saving you time, and focus on only the knowledge that is needed to pass the exam. You learn while you study, and the skills you gain are sure to be used time and time again in the work place. The value of IBM simply cannot be beaten.

Thesis Writing

Over a week ago, a cousin of mine asked for my help with her diploma thesis. She is graduating this October and she wanted me to proofread her work and to criticize it for her. It’s been awhile since I last proofread something so I happily accepted the task.

She’s taking up BS Computer Engineering (course I finished in college, by the way) so it’s right up my alley. The task didn’t involve me having to know what their design project was all about anyway. I already finished proofreading it. She was a little frazzled so I decided to help her out. She told me about her partner in the design project telling her to look for people who make or write custom thesis since they didn’t really have a lot of time. They almost resorted to that, but I’m glad my cousin was able to complete their thesis all by herself.

I remember back when I was in college, after we finished our design project presentation, our professor asked if he can use our work as a sample thesis for the next trimester. He said we’re the only ones who wrote our thesis ourselves. *LOL* Yes, there are a lot of people in our school who offer thesis-writing as a service. I was even helping one of them proofread their work. I get a commission, of course. *LOL*

I know, we shouldn’t even tolerate students having their thesis written or conceptualized by someone else. But, we can’t really blame them. I just hope they all really review the thesis they bought or asked someone else to complete. Otherwise, their years of studying will be a waste if they graduated without knowing what to do with what they’ve accomplished and completed so far. Don’t you agree?!
