30 Tidbits Before 30 - Day 9: Disinfect Your Gadgets
Category: Random Bag of Fun
When I did my bachelors and my masters, there was the option of taking notes on your laptop. I rarely did this as I’m obsessed with pens and paper, so I preferred scribbling notes by hand. But during lectures, I’d often be seated behind people who opted for their laptop. At times it was hard to concentrate on the lecturer when the person in front of you was sending memes on Instagram to their friends. Hard, because I had to suppress the urge to chuckle at the meme. But what I noticed the most with the array of laptop screens blaring away, were the greasy keyboards and screens. Urgh. Yuck. I had an overpowering urge to snatch the laptops, disinfect the keyboard and wipe the screens clean.
