If you have a love-hate relationship with the Internet, with other words, if you are on the Internet, this article is for you.
We all know that there’s a value exchange for everything in this world. Similar to the principle of action and reaction, nothing is free in this world. Or at least 100% free.
The Internet, especially lately, seems to bring to the surface or even amplify this whole situation. We see it everywhere.

You are on a planet full of life, with billions of other inhabitants, paved in a vast galaxy, surrounded by an almost infinite Universe.
The probability of your existence is one in trillions. You were about to not even exist. But here you are.
Although this world is far from perfect, I like to believe that you are here with a purpose. The reason you are here is that you have work to do in this world.
Sometimes you wonder how come that it’s you who were the one who was born from the trillions of other possibilities.
I once decided that I want to be a Photoshop expert. After I installed the program, to my surprise, I didn’t know to do anything in it.
I thought about myself as a skilled person.
The 90s were the most transformative years for video games, and I was lucky to be born right at the beginning of them. Therefore, my childhood was full of this kind of games.

“This article will not be written by itself.”
“I have to find something meaningful to write about”, I said to myself.
After a couple of minutes of struggle, even though I wasn’t sure what I wanted to write about, I started typing without thinking too much.
I then realized that an article could indeed be written by itself.

After attending Princeton University for a couple of years, in 1939, Alan Turing returned to England just before the Second World War and went to work for the British Cryptanalytic Headquarters at Bletchley Park, in Milton Keynes.
At this Allied code-breaking centre, Alan Turing and his team managed to crack The Enigma. This consists of various German codes through which they communicated on the battlefields, skies and oceans.

She told me they decided that they were only going to give me two more weeks. If I didn’t meet my targets, they were going to fire me.
At that moment, I thought my whole world was going to collapse. I felt betrayed, attacked, and more insecure than I had ever been.
Little did I know that on that day, I was about to discover parts of myself that I didn’t even know I would have. Hidden motivations and unsuspected skills.
