So the course is over and done with the exam. I hope to pass. I returned to the classroom after ten years. I’ll cherish the memories of two and a half months spent at #NUML. 😎


Goings On!

Almost quarter of this short language course is complete. Time is flying. I am back to classroom after ten years – a gray haired man among fresh graduates who finds himself a bit old school.

Daily class after office is difficult to manage but so far this change good. I barely manage time for home assignments.

Ahmad Al Maslawi plays in the background. If i look back at past ten years, i miss some good old days, a couple of people and a few situations i would have liked to turn differently, there is grief, there are some good days as well. But the hues of sadness are strong.

Would that life and this career path have turned a bit different. But man, i have a few more weeks of good times in a classroom, and surely, some memories to cherish!!

A short spell of rainy days is already here. Al Maslawi’s Hannet plays in the background. Almost 2 am – another long day begins in few hours.

1. And the plan has been finalized. Tomorrow i will be submitting admission form for German Language course.

I had to talk to a teacher in the relevant department for course details and class schedule. Seems like i’ll miss one out of two lectures daily. Joys of learning while at job.

The teacher i spoke to, told me, i may get help for the missed lecture but it depends on how committed i am by showing progress in learning.

Lumia! You will be missed!

Image result for lumia 535 dsThank you for being a companion for almost four years! It was a journey of transition from Windows 8 to Windows 10 over a span of three years – and i anxiously waited to upgrade from one build to another!

That frequent OS upgradation, sometimes two builds in a month, was a joy! The transformation to Windows 10 was introduction of new user friendly features – Notification and Quick Access Bar, new Facebook and Twitter apps, New Ringtones (one ringtone was a traditional Bhangra!!), New GUI Colors – was fabulous, and i enjoyed that part.

By enrolling in Windows Insider Programme, it was possible to use pre-release builds and find the bugs, which would pop up, all of a sudden – for example: A Blank Screen!  and you couldn’t do anything but to keep staring at a dark brick! Can you imagine those first few moments of shock and grief?

And on one Eid dayi was unable to unlock my phone, i tried to reset it and  failed and it remained unusable for about ten days. I was happy when OS was recovered later!

Strange things kept happening, like bluetooth and torch turning ON, on its own! Registration of false touch-screen inputs, screen auto-zooming in to 4x times – it all happened using those pre-release builds.

Several times i had to roll back to windows 8 to keep the phone running smoothly. In the end, i missed a final deadline to upgrade to a newer version, and remained stuck with the old build, with notable issues of fast battery draining and heating.

Few days ago, i changed the cell phone, and switched to a relief called AТелефон Nokia 2300ndroid! But still, you will be missed, Lumia 535 DS!

And, i still remember a blogging tradition, people posting the pics of their brand new, latest Nokia mobile phones in year 2004/2005, like: Nokia 2300 shown just to the right – it was a super hit of its time!

Those were times! While i still feel like stuck in a dream within a dream, i am referring to the movie Inception!! Things are not that different!! But, there is a hope!

So, to keep the tradition alive, say hello to this new J7 Max!
