    Girls, depression, Instagram & Facebook

    The biggest problem about social media, specifically Instagram is that it causes people to compare themselves and flaunt their lifestyles. I'll admit I've felt a bit jealous in the past when looking at ex colleagues who've managed to land themselves nice jobs abroad with relatively little work...

    Online Dating

    Interesting article on this topic. While I don't think the amount of couples that meet online in SA is as high as in the US, it is definitely higher than we think and chances are that we all (especially from middle-class households) know someone from our circles who met online. They usually just...

    Online Dating

    True, I have the utmost respect for her. The one great thing about her as well is that she has caused the toxic segments of the SA expat community in NZ to be uncomfortable.

    Annoying people

    It just annoys me because it can be time consuming to listen to. I don't mind it once or twice but some people literally send voice notes to every message which is a pet peeve of mine. There are also some people who are loose cannons and don't stop talking so they give a lot of irrelevant info...

    Laptop casing opening, how would I fix this

    As you can see, I've had bad luck again and this is a refurb I bought three months ago. Not a major issue but it just annoys me and sometimes makes a cracking noise. The residue you see there is just the fragments of a rubber compound that I put there to remove the cracking sound but is there...

    Looking for jobs abroad, anyone have tips?

    I do have a full-time job right now. I've learned a lot from it but I've now come to a point where I've plateaued and can't really grow from here on (I'm just not one who can work in an environment where I've plateaued for a long period). Technically, there are more senior roles within the...

    Looking for jobs abroad, anyone have tips?

    I suddenly had some interest from two companies locally about three weeks ago and have not heard from any since. I'm open to a new challenge at this point, even in another city in SA as long as the offer is good. I'm not intern level now. Once did invite me for a test after the interview but...

    Playstation

    I remember trying Grand Turismo and Formula 1. If I remember the cars are extremely hard. I was only able to win races with the C-class.

    Any good powerbanks for laptop?

    I just ordered a third one now from Takealot after returning the other two. I hope they send me the right item with all the contents this time. You mentioned that it charges your laptop? How long does it take?

    Any good powerbanks for laptop?

    I ordered that exact one from Takealot last week and it included everything bar the power adapters for the laptop so I returned it. I then ordered another one from another seller which was advertised as the one above but when received a different brand (it did not have the power adapters and...
