Lockdown Webinars

If there is one positive thing to take away from this whole lockdown and pandemic is the sheer amount of free webinars that you can attend these days! My inbox has been flooded over the past weeks with invitations to this, that or the other webinar and at first I was a bit hesitant and

On Covidiots and Fakeaways

I learned two new words since the start of the pandemic which will be very difficult to unlearn once lockdowns will be lifted in the coming months: Covidiot and Fakeaway. A coividiot is self-explanatory: one who hoards unnecessarily copious amounts of (toilet paper) consumable items thereby depriving others of a chance to buy some for
