Hacks. Come to this age and era, this is a term we hear and use a lot. Haha, okay that might be a little too opinionated of me, but, at least I do, and so does this generation of the millennials. But for those who don’t know what this means, let me tell you what hacks are. Hacks, in technical and literal terms, is a usually simple and clever tip or technique for accomplishing some familiar task more easily and efficiently.
and in layman terms, is basically what we Indians call “jugaad”. I’m sure we can all relate better now, right?
so basically, I’m going to be the messiah you never asked for and list some very easy lessons that were not taught to you in school.
I’ve tried to cover as many things as possible ranging from your study hacks to things that are useful in your everyday life.
And, here it is-
ALARMS. WHEN YOU JUST HAVE TO WAKE UP
As much as college life is glorified, we still need to wake up on time for that one morning lecture or have some serious attendance issues. to solve this problem, you can either put your phone(which has the alarm) in a glass cup to amplify the alarm volume so that you have to get up to switch it off. Another method is to download puzzle alarm clock apps.
JUST SMART WORK THINGS.
Cut down on the time that you spend searching endlessly for the perfect information on google. Instead, use google scholar to find out the cream information.
Yaa. Okay. I know that you haven’t read the news for the past four days but you’re still keen to know things. just google (month)(year) in Wikipedia and look at the results.
LOST YOUR PHONE. AGAIN?
This is literally one thing that happens with me all the time. I JUST CAN’T KEEP A TRACK OF WHERE MY PHONE IS. Like no matter what I do, I just end up keeping it at places that I’m never going to look at. so, there’s this really amazing feature of Google where you can type ‘FIND MY PHONE’ and your Gmail helps you find it. Such a saviour, right?
WHEN IN DOUBT, TOSS A COIN!
Most of us really just take it as a joke, but when you toss a coin, your mind and heart is always hoping for a certain result. That, my friend, is what you should really opt for because that is your instinct and the instinct is never wrong.
So, these were some hacks that i mostly use. We as a nation are famous for finding our shortcuts to everything. Write some of the shortcuts that you use in your everyday life in the comments section below and let us all know and grow!
