They wanted to send me to a "Gifted School" because I scored "Higher Level" at 8 years old... Father wasn't having that... Then at 12 they really wanted me in there. I lasted a month before getting myself kicked out. I never ever wanted to be "Normal" or "Gifted". They're both a curse

I switched to private school after 8th grade because I was uncomfortable around the normies. The private school I chose was truly bizarre and had very interesting people but even there I didn’t fit. My life didn’t really start until I started self education and was able to be in solitude away from all the indoctrination.

What’s your goal in life or maybe in this year?

milamson’s Profile PhotoAnna Vetrova
My goal in life is to find my purpose, to be happy and live my life to the fullest, enjoying the all the moments a long the way, and to travel often.
I’m happiest when I can share these adventures with family and friends.
Finish my education and settle into a career.
Hopefully find someone whom I can spend the rest of my life with and share my passion of traveling and raise a family.
My aim is to be happy & thankful with no regrets ✨✨✨

You think parents teach the kids about sex the right way or the wrong way?

theartist58910’s Profile Photothe artist
I mean, it absolutely depends on the parents. Some do it right, some don’t, some do the best they can based on the education they got, etc. It’s hard to make a broad conclusion about it, given it’s likely different for everyone. And if you factor in people’s beliefs, ranging from cultural, to religious, etc, there’s gonna be even bigger differences. Since I can only speak about it personally, I will do that.
When it comes to my parents approach, it wasn’t bad by any means, but it surely wasn’t like… an open conversation. My mom used to tell me to ask questions about it if I was curious, and my dad didn’t really talk about it at all. 🤷🏼‍♀️
The younger versions of me, who wasn’t even aware of what asexuality was or that there was a term for it, was curious. But not about s*x itself. I was more curious why I didn’t care about it at all, and why just the mere thought of s*x in regards to myself, made me uncomfortable. 😅 I was told a lot that it’s normal not to feel anything at first, you just have to “meet the right person” or “hit a certain age” and all of a sudden, you’ll feel it. But I didn’t. And that is something I wish I was taught. That not wanting s*x isn’t abnormal, nor does it mean something is fundamentally wrong with me or my body (as asexuality has nothing to do with hormones or your body functioning, it’s attraction based).
I’m not a parent myself, but if I ever were to have kids, I’d want them to have a good s*x education, and know that they not only can ask me questions, but also, that they can have open conversation with me about it. There’s no shame, no guilt, no taboos around it, it’s a totally normal thing to be curious about (or not), talk about, etc. And also, teach them firm boundaries that they are in charge of what they do with their bodies, and not to let anyone guilt, or coerce them into it if it’s not what they want. And that’s what I believe is the right way to teach kids about s*x. ☺️

Who has had an impactful or rewarding impact in your life? How have they changed you or your perspective? (I.e. parent, sibling, friend, pastor, teacher, relative, coach, etc.)

tristanandiseult3’s Profile PhotoMarie Curiosity
When I did a short training award in the mid 1990s, I was very fortunate to have trainers who really changed the way I looked at education, and completely changed the way I worked with people.
Although it was a much lesser qualification than the formal one I went on to do, this programme, done over a series of residential weekends, focused on Experiential Learning and educational psychology, and had a much bigger impact on me.
The trainers included a Police psychological counsellor, an academic head of curriculum, and other training and development professionals.
I was really lucky to be trained by them and as I said, it had a huge influence and effect on my own work from that point on.

Do you ever wish you didn’t have to go to college or have a 9 to 5 job in order to be financially secure? I got caught cheating on my exam which is obviously my fault but I also can’t get myself to study. Yet, when it comes to doing jobs without a college degree, I’ve been told life is harder.

This is such a loaded question 😅🤣… 1. I loved college… I love education! It’s enlightening and rewarding. I wish I had invested in more opportunities when I was young. 2. 9-5, M-F is optional. All jobs have different demands. Choose what fits your lifestyle. You either make your life fit a mold or you create your own mold and live your life. Lots of good paying jobs have a different schedule. 3. Life is hard, degree or no degree. Everyone is out there trying to make the most of it and you should too. Some degrees are useless, some companies care more about experience, some jobs require an apprenticeship, lots of jobs don’t require a degree at all. At the end of the day, what you care about is what matters. Don’t make decisions based on what others say. Do what’s right for you. Regret nothing.

If you lived in medieval times, who'd you be and what'd you do? 🏰 (Inspired by the reveal of Kingdom Come Deliverence II, am beyond hyped!)

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Well, as a woman I dont' have a lot of great options to begin with, since the position of my gender was heavily dependent on social norms and cultural circumstances (in even worse terms than today). There was no single most humane position that applied to everyone. Women had different roles depending on their social class, family situation and geographical location.
For women from aristocratic or wealthy families, the most humane position may have been to have a good marriage with a respectful and supportive husband who took their needs and desires into account (ew). Such women often had access to education and could enjoy some autonomy within their homes, although their freedoms were limited compared to modern standards.
Women from poorer families or those who lived in rural communities often had heavier workloads and less freedom. They were usually heavily involved in daily work, be it farming, housework or other economic activities. Their position was often characterized by greater dependence on male family members and social structures (ah great, the patriarchy strikes again).
I think I would still take the first option into consideration with a lot of different outcomes concering my (hopefully not so nasty and disgusting) husband. If, by any chance, said person is an absolute scumbag, I would totally fantasize about poisoning that piece of shît (/sarcasm). If a wealthy woman was suddenly widowed in the Middle Ages, her situation could vary greatly depending on various factors such as her social status, her family environment and the legal regulations of her time and region.
In some societies and legal traditions in the Middle Ages, women had the right to a portion of their deceased husband's estate, known as a widow's estate. This could include land ownership, financial resources or other assets that enabled the wife to live a decent life even after her husband's death.
If the wife played an important role in the management of the family estate or business, she could continue this responsibility after her husband's death. This could mean taking over the management of the business or representing her family's interests in negotiations and affairs.
Depending on the social norms and circumstances of her family, a widowed woman might be pressured to remarry, especially if she had no male heirs, in order to continue the family's property and name. However, this could also depend on the woman's personal autonomy and wishes.
Many wealthy women in the Middle Ages were involved in charity work, religious or social activities. A widowed woman could increase these activities or take new initiatives to engage in the community and use her influence.
So yeah, I would just hope to either be a cool nun or a widowed and more or less independent aristocrat (without having delivered an heir or re-marrying another stupid douchebag). Anything else would probably have me burning on a stake or else. /ᐠ - ˕ -マ Ⳋ

Do you learn English from the age 6 in your basic schools there in France? 🤔

LarryStylestomlinson436’s Profile PhotoMe - Larry
In France, English typically becomes a part of the curriculum around the age of 11 or 12, in middle school.
However, some schools may introduce basic English concepts earlier, but it's not as structured or formalized as in Anglophone countries.
So, while English education does start relatively early compared to some other countries, it's not typically from the age of 6 in basic schools.

They under no circumstances can ban a user for such actions otherwise they're going against their own words.

Do you believe in early marriages?

AhmadQureshi50102’s Profile PhotoAhmad
I believe it has nothing to do with age as long as your heart is at peace.
Marriage is a reality. You have to go through that at some point in life. That's what our elders expect from us, and so do we. We know that someday we will get married.
But let's be clear that marriage is a part of life, not the motive of life. Our lives aren't revolving around marriages. Rather, it's just one aspect of our lives that needs to be gone through.
Now, about having it late or early. I don't think that late or early matters more than having someone who is a source of peace.
See how life is going. We are physically and mentally exhausted after our long struggle for education and finding jobs.
At this point, we don't have a long list of demands for who we want.
The only demand would be that the person is not a source of distress, that the person doesn't give physical or psychological trauma.
There are a lot of things going on in life, and at the end of the day, we need someone at home who is a source of peace, not a cauldron of tension.

What steps or measures need to be taken to eradicate poverty?

In the short run, unconditional cash handouts can be granted to people; in the medium to long run, conditional cash transfers would help. Other than this, important stuff can be subsidized for a while ensuring that the help reaches those who need it most. But the real game-changer in fighting poverty is education. Not just degrees, but practical skills that help people earn a living. We need to give people reasons to learn these skills. Our education system needs a big makeover to tackle poverty. One effective policy that China implemented was the use of conditional cash transfers to encourage families to enroll their children in school regularly.

Oh how I hate answering these kinds of questions. But ok here it is. I was given an "Aptitude Test" at age 8. I just had to get a higher-than-average score.

Feminism is a lie.That has ruined many lives!

Malaika_1010’s Profile Photoسنو!
There are people who normalize every term to such an extent that it becomes offensive to the next person. Instead of stigmatizing feminism, we should understand the difference between feminism and liberal feminism. It's important to address the core issues rather than turning everything into a trend. Women shouldn't have to fight for their fundamental rights, such as education, job, personal identity, respect, etc. As far as equality is concerned, it's unreasonable because men and women are anatomically different for a reason.

How can people find their passion and purpose in life?

I don't know, it's something that clicks, and you know it. For some, it might take a lifetime to get it, and for others, it's second nature to them. That's why parenting and education are important; they help individuals understand how to proceed with such interests.

You married now. 😔 what about those medco gfrs you had ?

lol how would you know. Well I was committed to them (different timeline across 4 years) but sadly what I’ve noticed is majority of the girls out there (in pak) They are stupid asf. They would spend time with a guy. Make him dream, use him and then bring up daddy issues, religion etc. They really gotta grow some balls istg. During that time I learnt one thing that education doesn’t teach logic and common sense it comes from the upbringing. I mean after all those meaningless relationships I met a wonderful girl and proposed her with a ring after a month of acquaintance. She said yes and we got married. It was that simple tbh.

Justo acabo de terminar el anime "AssⱯ-ssination Classroom" en Netflix y ha sido tremendamente demoledor 😭
➤Tomé nota de ello cuando lo mencionó alguien que ya no está aquí y que se dedica a la enseñanza/divulgación... y a medida que avanzaba la trama entendí por qué le gustó y lo consideró un favorito.
➤Pese a que la idea base es algo rocambolesca (la Defensa japonesa y un prestigioso instituto están compinchados para que un grupo de estudiantes mediocres se encargue de pulverizar a un ser con súper velocidad que les va a hacer de profesor), el guion enlaza muy bien cómo sin apenas percatarse se crea un vínculo entre alumnos y profesor/agentes/as€-sinos contratados.
Y a lo largo de 1 año (1 curso escolar) tienen que trabajar conjuntamente cada día para superar miedos, saber cuál es su potencial, trazar estrategias, tener claro lo que quieren lograr (individual y colectivamente), aprender de otros con más experiencia, etc...
➤Mezcla muy bien situaciones cómicas, comentarios ácidos y sarcásticos, y momentos serios e incluso tristes (las caras del pulpo -sobre todo cuando se regodea con algo; los comentarios hacia la Profesora B✱tch, la vida de Nagisa con su madre...)
🔹Assa-ssination Classroom: All Openings (1-4)
https://youtu.be/LgstopNj7LoMissArtistsoul’s Video 173173906275 LgstopNj7LoMissArtistsoul’s Video 173173906275 LgstopNj7Lo
Pero lo mejor de todo son esos diálogos que te hacen pensar, replantearte tus propios métodos (aprendidos o desarrollados de forma autodidacta) o incluso recordar a ciertos profesores.
➤Todo el mundo en alguna ocasión se ha tenido que topar tanto con docentes con métodos como los del director Asano, o como los de Koro-Sensei (es decir, estudio sin descanso persiguiendo únicamente la victoria de modo egoísta; o aprender mientras se tienen en cuenta más factores como el esfuerzo personal y de grupo, el nivel desde el que se partió, lo que el propio profesor pone de su parte...)
✱Con eso también se hace una crítica de lo rígido, exigente y despiadado que es el sistema educativo allí, donde se sobrentiende que desde primaria el sujeto ya debe estar preparado para ser un engranaje perfecto dentro del mecanismo educativo
(y cómo la mayoría de institutos se aprovechan para exigir muy buenos resultados, porque los alumnos deben corresponder y rendirle honores al centro y a sus familias)

➤Al final lo que se muestra, es lo que en otros títulos de la saga "AssⱯ-ssin's Creed": por mucho que se haya entrenado a alguien para ser una herramienta que actúa en nombre de unas personas e intereses, tiene capacidad para pensar por sí misma, analizar su ética y la de los demás, y sentir.
La clase creía desde el inicio que todo iba a ser muy fácil, pero a medida que fueron conociendo mejor a Koro-sensei y él a ellos, la cosa cambió 😭
Aunque sea por la temática docente, la gente debería de verlo y sacar sus propias conclusiones.

What should a 25yr old be doing?

Well it will be different for every 25 year old.
I can tell you what I was doing at 25.
🏢 Work: I was an area youthwork manager for an international charity
🏠 Home: I was living in a rented room in a community centre owned by the charity, that I sometimes worked out of; then later that year I moved into a flat-share with a friend
💔 Relationship: A year-long relationship with my GF had just ended, which was rotten
🎲 🍺 Social: At that point, work was taking up much of my free time as I worked a lot of nights and weekends. But I was still managing to play TTRPGs most Friday nights, and probably doing too much post-work pubbing at that particular time.
🎓 Education: I had just finished a teaching & training qualification and was just about to embark on a higher level one

What were some of your best moments of 2023

Is there a reason for optimism about humanity's long-term fate?

One can hope and dream, and for sure, I do. I am a dreamer, after all. A time where wisdom, knowledge, respect, and education govern humanity.
To be honest, I find it really difficult to believe that people will one day reach a higher level of consciousness and awareness.
Every time I read about a different era, there is always that one group of people who prefer to bear arms and force everyone else into a war. Or there is always someone who wants more than the rest. Or there is always someone who wants to take more from the poor just to keep them in line. And for those someones, if you don't pay attention to their actions and get your hands dirty, you are going to lose in the long run, forcing the rest to resist.
It's a complete vicious circle.

ppl always get mad at me for saying this, but education is important. no, someone without a college degree is NOT on the same level as someone who barely finished hs. it's not even about jobs or money. it's about knowledge, prestige, societal respect. someone uneducated will always be seen as less.

That’s on their perception and sometimes, regardless of whether or not you went to college, some people will always try to put you down or look down upon you.

No, graduation is not required for all jobs 👎
Certain professions like doctors and lawyers typically require advanced degrees, but many other jobs do not necessarily require a university degree 🙃
Some industries value experience and skills more than education, and people can follow alternative paths like apprenticeships or vocational training to gain the skills required for these jobs 😌
