April 1 always causes people to rise from their beds with extra caution, knowing that they could encounter all forms of pranks at every turn. Yes, it’s once again April Fool’s day. But with this sense of caution also comes a sense of excitement for some, especially for those who are thinking of ways to outwit their friends. And as trolling has become quite a common word these days, this is the perfect opportunity to start harnessing the troll in you and find ways to humiliate, anger, entertain, or simply get one over your friends. The Art of Trolling In internet speak, ‘trolling’ is defined as the act of creating a scene on any thread or post by deliberately posting an offensive or provocative comment. Trollers would often expect angry, emotional responses to their posts, often making an already controversial argument even worse. As far as how one would characterize a troll however, this is where it starts to become subjective. Some people may think that they are merely posting a valid comment on a thread, only to find later on that they have been marked as trollers. This would most definitely happen if you post a comment that does not really agree with the rest of the active people on that thread, causing them to think that you are trying to spark an argument on purpose. Some trollers, on the other hand, are mistaken for people who are actually trying to make a point. Yes, some trollers actually do what they do in such an effective manner that they sometimes end up as a legitimate devil’s advocate in a discussion, not someone who’s just there to mess things up for everybody. So yeah, April Fools does seem like it was invented especially for trolls. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The Origin of April Fools Although there are mixed stories about where the celebration comes from, one of the most widely accepted stories hails from a declaration by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. He made a decree to follow the Gregorian calendar, therefore moving New Year’s from the end of March all the way to January 1. However, a handful of people, who possibly could not have gotten the memo, continued to celebrate New Year’s on the 1st of April, which made everybody else call them April Fools. Since then, people have spent April 1 playing pranks on each other, proving that there actually is a foolish side in each of us.

Law firms have always had this reputation for being kind of boring and stodgy. This is the same image that most people tend to see when they visit law firm websites as well. It really is a shame that most law firm websites on the net perpetuate this kind of image because no website needs to be boring even if it does belong to something as serious as a law firm. Edgy, Classy Website Designs It is easy to see why most web designers would choose staid and somewhat plain designs for law firms because after all, the industry is a lot about image and they can’t afford not to be taken seriously by their clients. Also, web designers tend to feel that there is only so much they can do with pages upon pages of boring attorney jargon. But that is all changing as some law firms sit up and take notice that perhaps boring isn’t the only way to go. These days, there are more and more lawyers taking the time to beautify their websites but still keep things professional and classy. Some of you designers might think that is close to impossible but just take a look at some of the classiest law firm website designs below and you will see that it can actually be done. Just take a minute (or 20) to look at the beautiful website designs for law firms that are featured below. What you will notice is that they managed to spice things up yet they all still exude a feeling of professionalism. In fact, you could say that their websites are pure class! For website designers, these images can serve as inspiration especially when working with clients who have to keep things technical and serious. Take in these designs and know that you too can work on such classy sites because good design is not against the law and with just a bit of ingenuity on your part, you can come up with similar (and better!) designs.

The corporate world, with its vast and unending demands, will always take its toll especially when you stay behind your desk or within the walls of a boardroom the whole day. Whether for health, mental, or emotional reasons, there will always be a day when you’ll find yourself saying, “Enough.” This is a common story that you will hear from digital nomads whenever you ask them what made them decide to start exploring the world. Digital Nomads at a Glance Digital nomads work from everywhere, traveling all over to accomplish what they need to do to earn while making the most out of technology. All that you need is a laptop, an internet connection, and the guts to travel to places completely unknown to you, and you’re all set. Some manage their own travel blogs and earn from sponsorships, ads, and affiliate marketing. Some are food critics who do not only get to enjoy the places they explore, but a variety of food as well. It’s interesting how most of them stumbled upon this way of living. Some of them used to be lawyers who decided that dying of stress early is not an option for them. Some are simply people who cannot be confined in a small space at any given moment, and could only become productive if given the time and creative freedom they need. Some have experienced the corporate chaos, some have lived like this their whole lives. But their modern twist to a nomadic lifestyle has definitely created such a huge following that more and more people have chosen to live like this despite the risks. The Digital Nomad’s Paradise What does it take for a specific location to be considered as a digital nomad’s paradise? There’s the low cost of living of course, paired with great internet service. The climate and weather would depend on the person, as some would find remote tropical areas to fit them perfectly, while others would rather go to places where they can enjoy all four seasons. Considering all these, here are some of the cities where most digital nomads prefer living and working from: Note: Monthly expenses and internet speeds were collected from Nomadlist.com. Prague, Czech Republic Image Credit: 123RF Requiring only around $978/month for you to survive, Prague is definitely a top choice, especially when you factor in their high internet speeds of up to 40mbps. Although the winters can get extremely harsh, digital nomads flock here by the droves not only because of the blazing fast connectivity, but because of the amount of inspiration that one could get with its cobblestoned paths, magnificent cathedrals, and endless amount of museums to visit. And by the way, Prague is also home to the largest ancient castle in the world, the Prague Castle. Chiang Mai, Thailand Image Credit: 123RF Imagine needing only around $635/month to live here. This is one of the reasons why Chiang Mai has become a hub for digital nomads and young entrepreneurs in Southeast Asia. Internet speeds can’t compare to Prague, but it’s still 20mbps worth of connection. It’s a lot smaller than the more famous city of Bangkok, but this also means that it’s a whole lot quieter as well. Healthcare is world-class despite the low price, and it is also home to an international airport from where you can conveniently fly to almost everywhere. Riga, Latvia Image Credit: 123RF Riga has the same internet speeds as Prague at 40mbps, but the cost of living is higher. It’s just a fairly small difference though, as you would need around $1,143/month to live here. If you enjoy architecture though, that small hike in cost of living is more than worth it, considering that Riga is home to the largest collection of art nouveau architecture in Europe. Despite the modern conveniences that it offers, the scenes around the heart of the city could still make you feel like you’re living smack in the middle of a fairy tale. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Image Credit: 123RF You only need around $964/month to live in this city, and you could reach internet speeds of up to 20mbps. Ho Chi Minh is also on the list of Southeast Asia’s most livable cities, which probably explains why so many online entrepreneurs and other digital nomads have started setting up shop here the past couple of years. There is so much history to enjoy here as well, so there are plenty of museums and other attractions to explore should you need to take some time away from your laptop. Bucharest, Romania Image Credit: 123RF Anybody wouldn’t mind shelling out up to $1,647/month if it means having access to 80mbps the entire time. Bucharest is also strategically located, and should give you easy access to the rest of Europe should you decide to pack a few things and explore the rest of the continent, either through plane or via rail. Davao, Philippines Yes, the humid weather averages at 34°C, but it’s all okay knowing that you’ll be working right at the shores of some of the best beaches you’ve ever seen. Average cost of living in Davao is $1,028/month, and although internet speeds are just at 5mbps, it’s enough for digital nomads who want to experience working smack in the middle of paradise. Undoubtedly, the freedom and the perks that come with each of these places are more than enough for anybody to leave everything behind and start living a digital nomad’s lifestyle.
