Play as white

When you are playing white pieces, you have a small advantage at the beginning of the game. You can control the opening. Practice a few openings with e5 and try out different variations in it. Once you remember the basic line of the game, you can play with an opponent. This way you will take less time to think of your next move and save time.

Play as white


Ever since Etsy was launched (in 2005), it has been a favorite spot of designers, crafters, artists, and painters for showcasing and selling their artwork to online customers. Etsy’s popularity has a benefit as well as a drawback. The popularity enables artists to access a large marketplace where there are plenty of buyers looking for decent artwork. However, Etsy's popularity makes it challenging for artists trying to make a living off Etsy because they face stiff competition. 

LinkedIn is a powerful job search tool

To search jobs in 2020, aside from several jobs posting websites, you could take help of LinkedIn. Almost all the job postings are uploaded on LinkedIn along with other job posting websites. Keeping an eye on companies’ LinkedIn profiles would be a good idea to start with your job hunting. A lot of the companies prefer LinkedIn profiles instead of a traditional CV or Resume. So, make sure to open a LinkedIn account now if you don’t have one yet.

The most classic trick in the book

Probably the best way to excuse yourself from an online class is to use the classic "Oh, the internet was down". The reason why it works all the time is that you have absolutely no control over it. It happens occasionally, especially in under-developed countries functioning without a secure infrastructure. The teacher doesn't have any way to verify your excuse (without calling your parents lol). They'll just have to say okay because there's just no other option.

However, you do need to be careful. You can't make the no-internet excuse if you share social media circles with your teacher. If you're sharing memes on Facebook during the class when you're not supposed to have internet, a teacher will pick up on that pretty quick.

They're lenient. Not dumb.

Game recording software

There are plenty of software options out there that will record your gameplay such as Streamlabs OBS, NVIDIA GeForce Experience, Radeon ReLive, etc. The max resolution that these tools can record your gameplay in would generally be the same as your display. Also, all these tools will offer you the standard 30fps and 60fps options.

However, these will record raw videos without any sort of compression. This means you’ll have giant video files for which you’ll need sufficient space on your drive. 

Get up and move

Just as sleep is important to jog your memory, so is exercising regularly. A human brain relies on oxygen to work properly. Therefore, a good flow of blood is necessary to jog your memory. If you ask me, exercising improves the blood flow to the brain and is linked with improving memory.

Aerobic and cardio exercises such as running, walking, and swimming trigger high protein levels, also known as Cathepsin B. This hormone strengthens the hippocampus in the brain, which is responsible for learning and memory. 

Side Hug

Side hugs are friendly and suitable if the guy you are giving a hug is your friend. Use on arm to hug them just like you would get together for a picture. A side hg also means that you want to stay close friends with the guy but you don’t want to hurt their feelings by making them think that you two can be in a relationship.
