System administrator in IT, for a small-ish software development company in Norway. I take care of servers, network infrastructure, and everything technical, so those who make the software have what they need.
Babies are cute, and I'd like to have one or two myself some day. I'm not looking forward to diaper changes, though, but I'm very much up for everything else that comes with having a baby (everything after the baby is born, that is).
Absolutely. Real men show feelings, and are also supportive of others when they show their feelings. But keep it in moderation, and if it's at an inappropriate setting, hold back. Constant crying isn't healthy, and doesn't look on anyone (either men or women).
Was hast du an deinem Geburtstag vor ? Ist ja am 17.4 oder nicht ?
My birthday was on 17.2, so you just missed it by a few weeks. Since my big day landed on a Monday, I celebrated it on the previous day (Sunday) together with my family. On the day itself, I didn't do much else, though, other than enjoying an extra bit of birthday cake at lunch.
Usually every 2-3 years, depending on how my current phone is doing, and the feature upgrade I'll get by getting the latest model. With my current phone, it might look like it will last for closer to 4 years, though.
I follow someone if I like them or what they stand for, and/or if they post interesting pictures. And it has to be much more than just posting modeling pictures. If your entire feed consists of you, somewhat undressed or lightly clothed, in various poses, and nothing else, chances are that I don't and won't follow you.
Lernst du schon lange Englisch? Willst du noch irgendwelche anderen Sprachen lernen?
I started learning English in elementary school, and I've kept it up to date through various school subjects, as well as listening a lot when watching American and British movies and TV shows (without dubbing). It has also been useful to keep up to date in my work, since most documentation is in English, and we've previously had customers abroad (like in the USA).
Hast du nur echte Freunde bei Facebook? Also die, die du persönlich kennst?
I have a few friends I've only been introduced to through common interests, and who I don't know beyond that. My main rule about new Facebook friends is that we should have met at least once, either in person or online (one-on-one), and that I hopefully remember who you are. I rarely initiate a friend request myself, but if I get a friend request from someone I should know (through common friends or a major interest), I usually accept it.
Schüler und Lehrer bekommen bei diesem heißen Wetter hitzefrei, andere Arbeitnehmer in der Regel nicht. Sollte es hitzefrei für alle geben? Wie ist das bei dir geregelt? Ist es an deinem Arbeitsplatz kühl oder heiß? Stellt dein Arbeitgeber dir Getränke bei den heißen Temperaturen zur Verfügung?
It can be really hot in the summer after 16:00 (I sometimes work until 18:00), since the sun comes shining directly at where I sit in the office, but other than that, the office temperature is pretty OK through the year. The office does have a fridge, a coffee machine, a kettle, and clean tap water, so options for hot and cold drinks are available. Only coffee is provided by the office, other drinks (not counting the tap water) we have to pay for ourselves, and the closest shop is just across the street.
Würdest du dein Kind so erziehen, wie deine Eltern dich erzogen haben?
On the most basic principles, I probably will, combined with how I've observed my sister raise hers, and other advice. I'll pretty much pick and choose what I see as the best options/ways to raise my future children (as in, I'll know what I'd want to do, and what I *don't* want to do, based on how I've seen others do it).
I'm a little bit jumpy when around dogs, actually, but that's mainly to do with their unpredictable nature at times. I've been allergic to dogs my entire life, so I'm very aware of my hands when I'm around dogs (my allergic reaction kicks in when dog hair is near my eyes and face, so just touching a dog without washing my hands immediately afterwards can be a risky sport).That said, I don't hate them, they do make good companions for a lot of people. I'm just very careful when being around them myself.
It depends what you're watching, really. Everything is nice in moderation, so avoid making anything on TV control your life. Also, most reality shows are complete garbage, so if you do prefer watching that type of show, be very aware of how it affects you personally.
It sometimes can be. It really depends on the relationship, and how the love ended. If it just fizzled out, and both sides agree that the passion is no longer there, then yes. If only one side ended the relationship, then it will take some time after the relationship ends before there's a chance for a friendship to stick around (but even that is not usually the case).
Honestly, I don't care that much about marriage. A relationship should be strong enough to last without marriage. That said, I'm not entirely against it, either. If it's something my long-term partner feels very strongly about, I'm open for it.
Listen to a music album, a podcast, or an audio book that you like (or like the subject/genre of), and just listen to it. Concentrate on what you're listening to. If you're listening to music you've already listened to before, try to discover another layer in the music. Simply forget the world around you for a few moments.
I'm mostly fine with them, as long as it's in a location that allows you to easily cover them up if the situation calls for it. Also, a tattoo should have a deep, personal meaning to you (as in, not getting a tattoo "just for the fun of it").
