What bugs do you hate the most? Why? How do you usually "greet" them? 🕷🐜🦟

TobbeAsks’s Profile Photoᛏᛟᛒᛒᚨ
I think we can all agree that wasps are assholes, I'm also not too fond of large house spiders, something about their legs and the quick way they move just gives me the creeps. That said, I don't kill bugs, no matter how much they creep me out...
If I find wasp in my home, I try to stay calm and shoo it out of the nearest window. With spiders, I try and catch and release them. And if I really can't deal... Then I get my partner to do it!

Do you have any unique holidays / festivities in the area, state, country etc. where you live? What does those entail? 🥳🌍

TobbeAsks’s Profile Photoᛏᛟᛒᛒᚨ
The two best examples that I can think of are Bonfire Night and Pancake Tuesday and, I suppose I don't need to go too in-depth about what the latter entails since... Well, the clue's in the name! Pancake day takes place in February, although the exact date is different each year.
Bonfire Night, on the other hand, takes place on November fifth each year. Towns will host firework shows and bonfire parties to commemorate the day the Gunpowder Plot was foiled and Guy Fawkes (one of the men involved in the plot, who attempted to blow up the House of Lords with gunpowder) was arrested.

Your house catches fire. Your loved ones and pets are all safe, but you can only run inside to rescue one item. What would that be? Why?

There is a little box that I keep on my bookshelf, which I've filled with photographs, letters, and other mementos I have collected over the years from my partner, my friends, and family (including some who are sadly no longer with us). It isn't worth any money but it is, without question, the one item in my home that I value the most...
And if I could save only one thing, that would be it.

What was your greatest success?

mamoonzaidi’s Profile Photoᴍᴀᴍᴏᴏɴ sʏᴇᴅ
● being able to pray all the 5 prayers on time, that when I miss one, I get really upset
● being able to enjoy my own company
● always be available for my parents
success should not be measured by how many cars you have or how much salary you get or how big your house is(i myself was going to mention these things) but i think that it's the little things that make a big difference
Peace and love

I would grab my bag because my bankcard and passport are in there. I would need money to stay somewhere else temporarily and I need to be able to identify myself too.

Favourite childhood memory? 👶🏼👩‍👦

BlackVeilBrides1300’s Profile PhotoClonk
The Christmas dinner parties that my grandmother used to host every single year, a week or two before Christmas day. My gran was one of my favourite people in the whole entire world, and those parties were a shining example of how she was capable of bringing joy and fun wherever she went.
She would go all out, put on a buffet, decorate the whole house, and then the entire family would turn up, we would play games, laugh, sing, it was just a whole lot of fun. I miss those parties.
I miss my grandmother.

Post a pic of your cat. 🐱

I don't have cat. I *wish* I had a cat, they're some of my favourite animals but alas, my landlord won't allow us to have any animals in our apartment. No cats, no dogs, not even a goldfish.
My partner and I are hoping to buy a house sometime late in the year though and we have talked about perhaps adopting a little furry companion once we're all moved and settled!

Are you at peace with life right now?

Pookeo9’s Profile PhotoEh?
This is going to sound super lame but I remember my first date with my ex, we had been getting to know each other for a few months and I had accidentally fallen completely in love with him. We walked back to his place, parents weren't home, so we spent the night cuddling and fell asleep on the living room floor. I woke up in the middle of the night with him cuddled around me and it was the best most amazing feeling in the world. I felt like nothing could ruin it and I just felt completely amazing and like everything in the world that could hurt me was a million miles away behind a big wall.
So, one time, right before I had to leave for Christmas break to see my family several states away, my SO and I went back to his house and took a nap. The sun was streaming through the windows just right and we managed to curl up around each other perfectly with him as the big spoon and having his arms wrapped around me. He set an alarm, like he always does, to wake us up in 30 minutes, but this time it was so quiet and warm and comfortable that he kept pushing it back thirty more minutes. I woke up for a moment or two each time and then almost immediately fell back asleep. Being in his arms like that, with his breath ruffling my hair, warming the back of my neck, feeling his hips curve against mine and our legs folded neatly against each other was everything for me.
I had a lot of mental health issues in high school, but one day, during the summer, I went out into the woods in my backyard, into a clearing. It was very warm and I took my iPod and played music out loud while I read some random YA novel. I ended up falling asleep on my belly, and woke up with my iPod stuck to my face, yelling at me about how it was too hot and shut down. But I was so peaceful in that moment. For me, it was when I was in Spain a few years back. We were taking a bus back to Seville after a day at Alhambra (this really cool Moorish palace), and I was one of the only people on the bus who was awake. There was sun and shadow outside, and I just felt this really strong urge to put on peaceful music as I watched the fields pass by. So I did. It was just this really strange and beautiful moment of peace and solitude.
My SO and I were laying in bed together. He was sleeping with his mouth wide open and he has a habit of holding my hand as he sleeps. Our baby was asleep on my chest, snoring a little with a handful of my shirt in her hand. My fluffy cat was asleep on my lap and I could hear her purring. I was laying there watching a movie and I just felt really lucky and like everything was exactly as it was meant to be.

Why do u Brits moan about the heat so much! Shut up!

Let me educate you anon :)
I think you need it... as well as a lesson in manners.
🌸 Generally the UK doesn't experience long periods of hot weather. Especially not to the extent that say America is use to.
🌸 Most houses are not fitted with air conditioning. Infact having air con in a house is not only a luxury, but with house designs here, having one fitted isn't particularly practical! So we have to have fans and the windows open, which lets face it, won't do much!
🌸 Houses here in the UK are heavily insulated! They are designed to withstand cold weather as well as heavy rain falls! So obviously having heavy insulation doesn't help with heat. It just holds it.
Those are just the top three points :)
Next will be your lesson in manners lol.

When you're at an amusement park, how do you like to spend your time there? Any kinds of rides that you absolutely adore? Any that you actively avoid? 🎢🎡🎠

TobbeAsks’s Profile Photoᛏᛟᛒᛒᚨ
ROLLERCOASTEEEERS! D:<
Gimme gimme gimme! Or, well.. I avoid them at first. You know, the feeling when you look at them and go "I can't do that! That's way too scary" and then you push yourself into the queue and then you go through it once and you get through that fear and the adrenaline flows through you like a tsunami and you just can't help going for the same ride ten times in a row because it just feels so darn great XD Wow, that was a monster of a sentence. But it is a monster of a feeling! I love it :3
What do I really avoid, though? Hmm.. Maybe the rides that seem to be designed just to make you puke. Like the spinning cups or such. I'm also a huge wuss so you probably wouldn't see me in a haunted house ride, especially if it has actual humans inside dressed up as something and their job is to scare you XD Besides, I don't want to hurt them - poor things are just trying to get through their day at work and in comes me, a nervous wreck who didn't want to be there in the worst place, and then they scare me and I either scream their ear drums off or end up punching them in the face as a fear reaction. Or both. So maybe I'll stay away from those.. 🤔
But ROLLERCOASTEEEEERS! Gimmeeee! D:< Let's goooo!
Oh! Also not the biggest fan of the "log" rides, you know the ones that land in water at the end 😂 Just seems uncomfortable getting wet in the middle of it all.

What is it like visiting parks alone? Is it akward? What was the experience like?

I like leaving my friends for a little bit to go take pictures of rides, so being alone just lets me do what I want which I like. Im not old enough to drive so im always with someone so I cant really speak for experience but just in life in general I just feel like I get judged more when im alone and it makes me really uncomfortable. Traveling solo is something I will want do eventually and like everyone else is saying I definitely think there we will pros and cons and it’s really your preference. I liked it as well in smaller doses (since I also am a social being and enjoy hanging out with friends), but ever since I got married it is a little awkward to try and get away for a day lol. Even if its a weekday and my daughter is at summer camp and my wife is at work, I just feel bad running off to the park myself without em :(. I should also clarify it is fun going solo to ride coasters, but I find it awkward on flat rides (which mostly are more social) and especially on other specialty type rides like River Rapids type things or limited seating type rides (dark rides with cars that house 4 people then go for example, etc). On a coaster its easier to either be in the car yourself or just share with one random person for a minute.
I recently visited Disney World and spent nearly all of my time in the parks alone. I was insanely hesitant about going to the parks without my friends or family, but it was surprisingly fun. Though having company with you at parks is nice, catering to their needs and desires can be annoying and can impact your trip. They may not want to ride something you would like to, or they might constantly have to stop at the bathroom. When you’re by yourself, you can do anything you desire without having to run it by those in your party. Trust me, you’ll enjoy being your own company. In my senior year of college, I had no classes scheduled on Fridays. I was fortunate to live just a couple hours away from BGW, and had a season pass, so I went down nearly every Friday in the spring. It was fantastic: I arrived at opening, knew the quickest ways around the parks (so many people walk as slow as sloths around parks!), and got TONS of rides on every coaster. Those solo days are some of my fondest park memories!
I've been visiting theme parks alone for many years, it's a little awkward the first few times, but eventually you won't mind. I recently just took a solo 3 day trip to Cedar Point which was my first time there since I was 12. I stayed at breakers by myself which was a great decision. When the lines got busy during the day, I went back to my room to grab some beers and food. When I was at the park there were plenty of cool people and other coaster enthusiasts to talk with. I'm not much of a social person and am very introverted so I don't speak often, but I try to push myself to talk with people. Of course, there are times when you're surrounded by school kids or families, in which case I just play on my phone.

I love rollercoasters and anything where I can be REALLY close to the one I'm there with. And Ferris wheels at night can be magic. I can't do the really spinny things anymore -- my inner ear isn't what it used to be. I try them all out, but absolutely love the coasters or water rides with big drops.
I agree about snacks, I make a picnic lunch and go out to my car halfway throughout the day, although I only do that at my local park. If I was going to a bigger place like Universal Orlando, I would go with the meal ticket that keys you eat all day - research the Park you are going to. Things like meal passes are going to be way cheaper if it is somewhere you flew to vs. One that is near your house and you just make a day trip.
When I used to work at Disney World, I would go to the parks by myself all the time, usually after my shift was done if I wasn't work night shift. A lot of the time I'd just pop my earbuds in and listen to music while I walked around (Epcot was great for this). It's a bummer about the lack of single rider lines. I found that great if I wanted to ride Tower of Terror or Rockin' Rollercoaster for the umpteenth time.
The main benefit is that once you get to boarding platform a lot of times the employees let you take empty spots, though this is ride\employee dependent. The main disadvantage is that the majority of time at an Amusement park is waiting in line, that's usually funner with a friend. Bring a book to read or something to occupy you during the line and you'll be fine. When going alone I'd usually pay for a locker, when going with friends usually someone (the "mother" or "chicken") would hold everyone's stuff but you can't do that if you're alone. Have fun and don't be afraid to take a break from Roller coasters by enjoing a show or two!
I've been to Universal Studios Japan, Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea by myself. While I would very much prefer to go with people I had a great time by myself. I'm extremely shy so I didn't really talk to anyone (well the shyness combined with everyone around me being Japanese and I barely know any Japanese) but I still had lots of fun. Lines are annoying when you don't have someone to chat to though.
I went to Disney in Paris alone. Most of it was fun - Was great walking around and seeing all the stuff etc.
Worst part was queuing - I'd just get really bored after a while.
Phone (And power bank) ran low on battery from playing games. I guess I could have brought a kindle or book or something.
I wouldn't call myself introverted, but I'm comfortable with my own company - But after an hour of standing like a sheep in a pen and shuffling a few steps every now and then, it got a little old. Single rider lines were cool, but they were still pretty long lines. The upside was that I could get my Fastpasses early on, and decide where I wanted to be through the day.

Is own house compulsory for a boy to get married? I have seen people finding rishtas with demand owning a house. What do you say about this?

Meri jaan everybody is entitled to their opinion. Lemme explain. I,a guy, want a haseen af larki to get married to and people are going to disagree with me saying i look like Chris gayle myself but should i let their opinions bother me or shape my future for that matter? If a woman wants to marry a rich guy there's absolutely nothing wrong with that; it's her fucking life.
