This week, I visited Prague for a few days together with my colleagues from school. So now, I want to write a quick review of the hotel we chose. Since we were 20 young people, we did not need a fancy hotel, just a place to sleep and meet. Through a recommendation, we then chose the Pension Tara as our accommodation for the stay.
I am pleased to report that I passed the Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English with the Grade “A”. Of course I am very pleased with the results and Cambridge states that:
Grade A, which demonstrates an ability at Council of Europe Level C2
Nonetheless, I hope to improve my language skills even further and hopefully get more proficient with the English language. But of course, this certificate is also a good way to show my proficiency in English to any employer that might come along…
As a part of my higher education entrance qualification (“BerufsmaturitÃ¤t”), all students have to realise a project called the “interdisciplinary project work” (“InterdisziplinÃ¤re Projektarbeit, IdPA”). Since this is a technical school, some of us chose “Information Technology” as our optional subject during the last year of the qualification.
Often, I find I have too many open tasks on my todo list. I then looked around for a clever way to organize my daily or weekly task list. Because first, I just kept my work journal up to date with all tasks and crossed off the tasks I completed. The process of crossing one task is extremely pleasant, but my eye immediately catches all these tasks I still have to do. That part of this method is not so great. But I think I found a pretty good way to prioritize my tasks…
This is a bit of an unusual review since I am reviewing… a bag! I could not find any other review of the bag mentioned here on the internet, so here it goes…
Update: For more images, recommendations and a report after one year of usage, see my follow-up.
Since my old laptop bag I used for work and school was a bit beaten up, I looked for a new bag for daily usage. I then came across the Freitag website. Freitag fabricates bags made from used truck tarps, safety belts and bicycle inner tubes. A friend of mine already had a Freitag bag and I decided to order a bag for myself. Now I only had to decide which one it was going to be.
My requirements where simple:
- Rugged, rain-proof
- Big enough for schoolbooks and papers
- A 15″ laptop fits inside
