Written on the Epiphany Night of the Lord’s 2021!
Today, the two most common words are ONLINE and PANDEMIC. Yes, you probably went online also, whether you wanted to or not, because the COVID19 pandemic made us do it.
Overnight we became IT experts, although until recently when a child tells us to turn off his computer, we used to cover it with a blanket.
Now all of a sudden everyone has heard of zoom, Webex, and other programs to watch and talk online with relatives who are far away, while good old Skype, a bit sad and forgotten, watched it all helplessly. How little we needed to do the impossible, from putting on a mask to watching various educations online, we jealously watched our children who followed the online classes as a joke, and that’s all you can do when you want, and we reminded ourselves.
When they first told me at work that I could work online from home, the first thing that came to my mind was that I was fired. I sadly stepped out of the large building where the even larger company was located and wondered if I would ever go back there. With a little help and a lot of effort, I managed to turn into an IT expert and realized that computers were invented by people and that they can’t do without us, but it seems that we can’t do without them. A living person gets used to everything, so we quickly got used to working from home, working in pajamas, shaving every second or third day, working with the TV on, a sandwich, coffee, drinks, and really when a person sees that, this Online work from home is not so bad. When my entire salary was still on my account, I shouted live ONLINE!
A PANDEMIC, yes I really think we have all been affected by a pandemic, the so-called online pandemic. We got hooked online as cigarette addicts, and when I researched better, really, could we do without the internet, google, smartphones, smarter than most of us. Imagine going back in time and finding yourself in the era of color films. How would you manage? Here I am laughing and thinking if I could replace a comfortable car with a horse if I could drink water from a stream and sleep under a clear sky covered with something and look at the stars as I sit down. I could, of course, but…
A few years ago, I first heard about studying online in America, and it dod not seem like something honest to me. How that is even possible and what quality of education do Americans now offer, who will find it interesting and who would want to enroll in such a way of studying at all? Looking at it from today’s perspective, I’m really giving my respect to their looking into the future as they’re the ones creating the future. Here on the link you can watch a movie from 1985, back to the future, and see what kind of things we laughed at and thought were impossible to ever happen, and they happened much earlier than we thought.
