Structured CV

Structured CV Editing my CV is my bane, but I am recovering. Whenever I would work on the content of my CV, I would inevitably switch to the format of the CV. The inverse was often true as well. I also have challenges with Microsoft work, sometimes preferring water-color and ink. Another theory could be that I was a bit afraid to venture to the job market. Whatever the reason, it has taken me 1…

Be You in English Too All too often the French think there is one way to express themselves in English when in fact there are multiple ways.

Why Never Wrong?!

I once did a comic review on why one can never esteem oneself wrong. The reason being that when you know you were wrong, you are again right. This video is interesting. The proposition here is that stupid people have a tendency to think themselves correct and smart people have a tendency to doubt. The stupid person, therefore, is too stupid to see themselves as wrong and the smart person is too…

Ralph Waldo Emerson's UU Inspiration

I know two influential ADHD Unitarian Universalist ministers. One wears his ADHD on his sleeve. The other has other things to worry about. Here is the quote that convinced me that Unitarianism is an interesting thing. This contribution from Emerson led to his expulsion as a UU minister. Ironic that this is my welcoming to the UU fold because I was to be exiled for ideological reasons.  I find this…

Using a Personal Git Repository
