Sometime I help around in screening candidates for my team. I was going through a bunch of resumes and most of em were replete with React and Angular experience. Some of em had those 2 words in almost each sentence.
One particular resume kinda stood out (at least for me). It didn't really harp about any libraries that are in common use as of today. Instead it had a section called Personal and in there the candidate (who shall remain nameless) had listed the following items:
For some reason I felt this is a better candidate :)

Music softwares, VST instruments, plugins and sampled sound packs these days seem to be promoting products that almost make the music for you. It’s certainly not marketed that way. In fact they market it as if they are depending on ‘your’ creativity to make the music. But if you actually use the products, you’ll realize that a lot of it is already done for you. The sounds are ‘Massive’, well layered, complex and beautiful. The sample packs are neatly categorized into transitions, fillins, endings, tails, intros, soundscapes, textures etc. The presets are rich and arpeggiated into multiple well thought out…

MIDI specifications define middle C as the number 60. It does not state if this is on the third or the fourth octave. It just says, if you want a middle C, it will numerically be 60 from MIDI’s point of view. Device manufacturers (and software creators) are free to set whichever octave they want to the number 60.

My mother has many legs
She is a caterpillar
She does not move very fast
But she sure is graceful.
She lives at the foot of the hills
With small waterfalls sprinkled all over them
Like little puddles formed after an early rain
Like the spots on a frog
She looks at the hills and remembers,
Beyond those hills lies the world
With all its wordly things
With all the sorrows it brings
‘Joy’ is such a fleeting moment
It even has a short name
It does not belong to her
It does not come by her
But she tried to save some of it for me
She tried to walk all the way for me
She took the extra step
My mother has many legs
She is a caterpillar.

It was 1997. I landed a job at a place called Crosswords. I had recently married and I needed to work somewhere. I was about 23 years old. I did not know what the internet was. I did not even have an email address. Crosswords was a bookstore near Mahalaxmi Temple in Mumbai, India and I was appointed as Customer Service Executive.
3 big words that meant:
Stand near the book shelf and look helpful.
In most cases, it would be a beautiful day. Bach, Vivaldi or Beethoven would be playing in the background. I d find me a spot…
