my lovely sunshine

I am 21 and im a girl.. i don't usually do this but i feel u can understand me .. i used to be an extrovert but people always take it from a negative perspective like im being too nice .. and someone said to me "i don't wanna be an extrovert like u to not let people have a wrong impression of me"

That’s pretty harsh of folk to have said that about you; you can be a genuinely good soul, have honourable intentions and be either an introvert or an extrovert. The way you draw upon energy shouldn’t have any impact on people’s perceptions of you, and it’s sad that they’ve made you feel like being an extrovert is a bad thing, as it truly isn’t. It’s not fake in the slightest.
There’s nothing wrong with the way you are, and we need more people like you in the world, those with pure hearts and want to spread joy to others. It’s easier said than done I know, but don’t let anyone make you feel bad for being the way you are. It’s a reflection of their own insecurities, and nothing to do with you at all. You keep being you bud, you’re lovely 🤗✨

What are adjectives people commonly use to describe you?

Quirky, nice, happy, friendly, lovely and cute are probably the ones I hear most often from my friends, co workers and girlfriend.
I guess I'd agree with all of those. My husband adds in funny - I generally don't think of myself as a funny person but I can be around people I am really super comfortable with.
Intense - Easily the top one I get. It sounds negative, but the second I want to get into details on the meaning I'm just proving I'm intense apparently. Smart - Sure, I agree. Strong - They mean mentally and I don't know if I agree or not. Mostly I disagree, but I'm not dead so maybe they have a point. Hard headed/Stubborn - ...yeah. Crazy - Well documented so yeah.
Weird/eccentric - Seems to be used when people don't want to say "crazy," so sure. Meticulous - I got this a lot at work. I would agree that I am on some things. Funny - I don't really agree on that, but people laugh so I dunno. Sarcastic - Much easier for me to agree with than a general "funny." High maintenance - I don't think I'm that bad honestly. Lazy - Used often when I'm depressed. Disagree. I'm depressed. Big difference.
I think quirky is the most common. I'm called mothering, eloquent, concise, forward, loud, smart, annoying.
Funny, cute, beautiful, kind hearted, sympathetic, easy going, relaxed, patient, talkative, empathetic, genuine.
Intimidating, quiet, patronizing, really fucking smart, overthinker, neurotic, 'magnanimous with the cloves,' ambitious, kind, a comrade, a team player, overcommitter, procrastinator, hipster.
I agree with the negatives mostly. I'm struggling to correct them. Magnanimous with the cloves is probably my favorite description ever (I used to smoke cloves, and give them away to whoever asked, no questions back).
Cute, Sweet, Warm, Girl Next Door, Worrisome, Intelligent, INNOCENT. I don't get it, no matter my personality I get innocent. I guess I could agree with some of them, maybe not the innocent one (and I have no idea what people mean when they tell me I'm the girl next door. They barely know me).

I’m kind of a solitary. This would not satisfy everyone’s hopes, but for me it’s a lovely thing. I recognize the satisfactions of a more socially enmeshed existence than I cultivate, but I go days without hearing another human voice and never notice it. I never fear it. The only thing I fear is the intensity of my attachment to it. It’s a predisposition in my family. My brother is a solitary. My mother is a solitary. I grew up with the confidence that the greatest privilege was to be alone and have all the time you wanted. That was the cream of existence. I owe everything that I have done to the fact that I am very much at ease being alone. It’s a good predisposition in a writer. And books are good company. Nothing is more human than a book.

When I've been to Greek Islands it wasn't like that but on the mainland yes! It's a problem with the pipes that they can't take paper as it will flood the system. The little bins are emptied every day but it is a culture shock! 😂 It's such a lovely country with rich history so it's okay! 😂 X

Please guys stop asking questions about her dating Harvey and leave them live their lives, their love life isn't our business :/

Thank you lovely. I want to answer all your questions but it gets exhausting when people keep assuming things even after you’ve told them the truth and still get called a liar. I don’t mind answering your questions as I really want to talk to you but please don’t ask me the same questions repeatedly ☺️

I’m doing good thanks bud, I hope you’ve had a lovely day too! I was at work for a fair chunk of the day, I’m just trying to get better before my shift tomorrow (a pretty bad headache that is determined to cling on for dear life, ahah). Hope you’re doing alright! :)

Pytanie tylko do dziewczyn. Wolisz kosmetyki tanie takie jak Maybelline , Rimmel , Lovely czy drogie takie jak Huda Beauty ?

Osobiście nie uważam żeby kosmetyki z Rimmel czy Maybelline należały do tanich 😅
A używam tego, co mi akurat podpasuje. Podkład mi najbardziej odpowiada z Avonu, który w regularnej cenie kosztuje 45 zł, więc staram się go zamawiać, jak akurat jest tańszy. Puder i rozświetlacz mam z wibo, tusze z Eveline

It absolutely was, didn't realise give me time enough to panic! If I'm honest I'm not sure I remember what either of us said when I told you, but I remember you made me feel safe and calm when I needed it so I've never forgotten that and wanted to share. Thank you again for just being lovely x

I guess that’s quite fortunate in a way, in that you were so in the moment and you couldn’t let panic take a hold! Ahah it’s fine, likewise in truth. Oh wow thank you, that’s incredibly lovely to know that I was able to help you in just a small way, I’m truly honoured!
You’re very welcome, and you’re wonderful yourself! Feel free to chat whenever you like, and many congratulations again to you and your family 🤗 x

Have you ever been to another country, other than the one you live in? What was that like?

H2o_o2H’s Profile Photo
I have! I’ve been to France many times, partly because it’s relatively easy to go to, and my dad is fluent in the language. We mostly went to various places within Normandy, but the south of France is truly beautiful. I’d love to visit there again; we stayed near a huge lake with the Alps in the distance, and the nightlife was so lovely; the hum of cafes and restaurants, people outside laughing and enjoying the summer evening.
Recently, I went to Edinburgh, and that was my first time visiting Scotland! I miss it so much, it’s not often you come across a place that’s so relaxing and tranquil, while also being incredibly beautiful and full of history. It honestly pops into my head everyday, and made me realise how much I truly love travel, and how refreshing it is for the soul! ✨

How do you like to spend your time on a rainy day?

Indoor stuff. It's supposed to rain today, and I was supposed to go to a baseball game, then visit a museum tomorrow. Switch museum to today, baseball game to tomorrow. They're giving away free hats tomorrow, too.
The other week it was storming when I got home from work late. I was in a bit of a frisky mood for my boyfriend. Did some mattress mambo while it was pouring and thundering. Not gonna lie, was pretty solid.
Sitting on my best friends front porch in Denver, stoop drinking, and people watching. Or snuggling up with someone and watching a movie.
Either going out in the rain or sitting in my attic room, hearing the rain drumming on the roof and windows. I open the windows a crack and let the house breathe. I also make sure I step out and experience it, preferably barefoot. I love rain.
If it's a heavy storm (high winds, lightning, heavy rain etc.) I'll sit outside with some cover so I don't get wet. Put on some nice relaxing music and just watch the storm. So relaxing.
I guess it depends on how gory you want to get. This one might be hard to find but Headhunter by Michael Slade is a great book - the ending is amazing. I really like some of the old Stephen King books as well, like The Shining. Silence of the Lambs is also a great book. These days, I tend to stick more to Jeffery Deaver and James Patterson.
Bonus points for playing it at night in the car. My wife and I have been doing this together since college, it never gets old.
Open the balcony door, grab my blankies, lie down on the living room floor and cuddle the shit out of my pillows while enjoying the smell of rains.
The world is getting washed, snails come out and enjoy the wet environment, pretty umbrellas come out and decorate the streets, the thrumming sound of the rain relaxes your mind, the air becomes fresh, the grass and trees look a little more green, the sky is a lovely grey that won't burn your eyes, and everything just looks so fresh and beautiful that you can't help but love the rain!
Sometimes, but not always. Personally, I like the sound of rain, so when I’m trying to relax it’s quite nice. But then, if I’m trying to be productive outdoors it can be quite annoying.. I definitely enjoy rainy nights more than clear nights, but for the day it depends on what I’m doing.
I used to find rainy days depressing and then I moved to Portland, OR and they really grew on me. I like both now but there is something super fun about really bleak and depressing weather as long as it is like natural disaster or anything--that just feels unsafe. But bleak weather is great for reading, playing video games, watching Harry Potter, drinking coffee and many other fun things.
I don't do well in sunlight, mainly on hot days. It can make me feel like my skin is burning, and being out in it for a long time makes me feel exhausted. I'll take clouds and rain over straight sunlight any day. The best days are when the sky is about half-filled with clouds, the kind that look like objects.

What have you learnt from your time on Ask?

AisyahIsHere2’s Profile PhotoAisyahpotated
Any experience that makes you think that it only happened to you, that it's some dirty secret that you're carrying around - someone else will put a hand up and say "me too."
People are kinder than you know.
Some people will be lovely and think that you're funny, others will think you're a self-righteous twat. Both of these people could be right, so best just to stay neutral about the whole thing.
There are a lot more feet people in the world than you might expect.

Have you ever been on a cruise? Where did you go?

It was way too noisy on the cruise: loud music blaring constantly, everywhere you went. The pool was absolutely disgusting with floating bandages and who knows what else in it. The food was mediocre at best. The entertainment was silly. The best part was off shore, but didn't allow much time to explore before you had to get back on the boat. We were smart enough to get a room that had a balcony, which my husband and I spent a lot of time sitting on because it was quieter. But we'd be watching all the trash floating on by, and that was depressing. There was one day the weather was bad, and I didn't get out of bed and just read an entire novel, that was nice. Oh and I suppose we slept well, so there's that. And the staff was nice. No. I get motion sickness. I think I would enjoy it to some extent being on water because I do like that. But I don't think I would love all the people. Or stopping at country tourist traps. I don't really love resorts so much any more - maybe a day or two as a treat but I am under no illusions that I am visiting or seeing the country as it really is. We have property in a remote village in Belize. That is far more to my taste. But I do enjoy getting out on the water. We won a 4 day cruise to the Bahamas. I'd only do it again to visit a number of places easily, like if I wanted to see several islands in 1 trip. Since we don't drink or gamble much, shipboard life isn't our thing, and I was really turned off by the way the crew tried to steer us to places on land that they got kickbacks from. They told us multiple times how untrustworthy and even dangerous or unhealthy it might be to shop or eat anywhere they didn't recommend. But we found lovely local shops and restaurants run by natives who couldn't afford to pay the cruise line.
We both had balcony rooms and I quickly found, we both loved it. Nothing like sitting out on the balcony, drinking and watching the ocean flow by. We have been on two since then, and had another scheduled in 2020 before Covid. We are going on another cruise in March 2021, and when we retire in 2 years, we will cruise on a yearly basis. Already planning an Alaska cruise for 2023 as a retirement gift for myself.
I went on a cruise with my extended family when I was 13. This was before cruises were family friendly, and there were only maybe two other kids on board. My sister and cousin were 16/17 and spent their time hooking up with the crew, so I was pretty much on my own a lot. The cruise left from New York City and went to Bermuda and the Bahamas and back. I think it was 10 days. The food was good and my grandparents were happy to have all of their extended family together. I enjoyed our day in Bermuda the most.

Haha! Well, I think you're lovely because of how you write and how you think. You seemed to be distraught, too, when your account has been banned (which, to me, is very ridiculous, by the way). It means you care enough for other people to shine a light on their path, so they won't be lost.

I was worried because I know so many of you seek refuge in the anonymity provided by this platform, most especially LGBTQ youth and young women with questions about sex. In truth I was relieved and looked forward to the extra time I'd have not answering questions here. 🤣 But then I started worrying about "my kids." And now here we are.

You have such a lovely personality, and I'm in awe of that. I wish other people would be like you. That aside, how do you stay... good, kind, and lovely, even though you're old now? Because you have seen the terrors of life?

You only say that because you have not met me! Most people find me awkward and basic. 😁 Thank you! Early in my life I lost someone I loved to a terminal illness after caring for them until the end. It changed my entire outlook and since then I look at life like it's temporary, love as something brief and precious, and I know that nothing else matters as much as the impact you can make in someone's life.

have u guys ever wonder why some people like u in romantic way? bcs sometimes i feel ugly and i wonder what they see in me

I need somebody who can love me at my worst,
Know I'm not perfect but I hope you see my worth,
‘Cause, it's only you, nobody new, I put you first,
And for you girl, I swear I’d do the worst💕
Don't it more lovely to have someone who loves you for who you are? Who genuinely loves you for your heart, for your brain, for your manners and not the physical appearance:,). Of course laa that person sees beyond than idea of being pretty or good-looking like the people portrayed in this world.

Liv, when you said everyone’s leaving & you feel like you're being forced into a position that you don’t want, can you explain what that means? Who is leaving from where? What's the impact of that on you?

We’re a small branch, there was only five of us and the two assistant managers have both handed in their notice (one left a few weeks ago, the other handed in her notice the other day). I only found out yesterday from my boss. So because we’re extremely short staffed now, I think my boss wants me to fast track to be an assistant manager or at least, a position beneath that, for now.
I never wanted it though, and same with the other barista who is left (she joined only two weeks before me). Both of us don’t want the stress and we didn’t sign up for career progression stuff.
For me, it’s not something I’m interested in, as art is my priority. The job is kinda taking over though, and I worry it would be even more so if I have this position. On one hand, I’m considering it because I really don’t want our shop to shut as it feels like it’s dangling by a thread. There’s also a lovely community of regulars there too, and I don’t want them to lose that for them either. So many of them are really kind and I’d feel like I’d be letting them down in some way if I don’t go for this position (not that they’d know obviously, but y’know).
So yeah. The impact is that there’s only three baristas including the manager, maybe four, as one barista (who’s an assistant manager) kinda floats around to help various branches. I only signed up for a part time contract, but I’ll probably have to work full time, just to balance things out for everyone else. I’ve already worked eight days in a row as it is, and that’s quite common. Luckily today is my day off, before it starts off again.
Sorry for the offload. I know my mum wasn’t happy that I didn’t speak about going for the position to my boss after work yesterday either, so I feel like my hands are tied from all directions. It’s chaotic as a barista in such a short staffed store, let alone taking on more responsibility :/
(There’s no need to reply!! I just needed to let this out aha, but thank you for asking and for taking an interest!) :)

Rouge merely let a soft chuckle escape her lips at the harlequins question, gloved arms folded over her heart shaped chest plate. ❝Not exactly, Can't be a spy if you're not doing a little research.❞ Turquoise eyes now shifted to glance at the blonde. ❝–No need for concern on your end, I'm not here to do any research on you /or/ even bother with the gems you posses. I'm here because of this...❞
Gloved digits crept into her heart shaped plate, she would pull out a piece of what happened to be one of the three pieces of the master emerald.
❝This gorgeous thing right here. Two more pieces to go and this lovely jewel will be restored! I had only recently gathered intel that Gotham had one of the pieces here in one of their museums on display and I just had to come and scoop it right up!❞

What do you like or dislike about your city? 🙄

hussainaliraqe23’s Profile Photo3ra2y
I've worked and trained in my capital city for years and years and yEARS, so I have a very long relationship with it.
This is Cardiff, by the way. Totally different kettle of fish to London, but I'm not sure I'm qualified to call London mine anymore 😂
Anyway, the Diff!
It's a coastal city, so it's got a bunch of different parts to it. You've got the Bay and there are boat rides and a waterpark and coastal walks, so that's nice. And then inside the city, you've got the main hub where you can shop at some really cute shops - it's a maze of old arcades, churches, that kinda thing - and then heading North you've got an arboretum and parks and the sports stadiums.
And you can walk around the entire city in a day. Seriously. You can cover the whole area.
But! Whilst all of those things are a huge positive to me - it's cozy and it's friendly - it's an absolute tit to try and travel from. The airport only seems to fly to Dubai or Amsterdam. And the city is small- you run out of stuff to do in two days, you WILL bump into your ex, you WILL have to be nice to his new wife.
But overall, it's pretty lovely.

Ten things you love about Spring or other season 🙂

AdrianaRafaela98’s Profile PhotoAdriianna Rafaella
Spring is perfect because it's like summer but not as warm. Spring is when butterflies fly around. They are so beautiful and birds sing beautiful songs. Spring is a great season for kids to play outside with their friends and dogs.
The first thing we all love about spring is that it is warmer and people can spend more time outside. "The weather is warmer and the trees get leaves." "It's nice to be able to spend more time outside." Spring is a good time to do things outside - to enjoy the long evenings, have a barbecue or take a walk in the park.
Spring is the fulfillment of nature’s promise to once again provide. It marks the ending of the frozen winter with the beginning of new life and growth. It hints at the possibility of the renewal of all things.
The flowers are beginning to bloom, as the leaves begin to bud on the branches.
The sky, it is painted in a beautiful light blue, speckled by the birds singing as they return home and the occasional cloud.
The air is crisp, not too warm but not too frigid or cold. It brings a calm; it takes out of reality and into a calmer world, one in a state of everlasting serenity.
The weather is getting warmer, trees and flowers are getting green...
My favorite part of Spring is sights and smells of everything blooming. The most exciting part of Spring is watching animals with their new babies especially ducks and swans.
The lovely scent of flowers drifting on the air as I walk. The little swallows harvesting mud to make their nests, they flutter their wings and work in large family groups. The sound of a woodpecker early in the morning. Brief spring showers. The hills turning green.
Just seeing nature come alive with fresh leaves and blossoms. It’s such a glorious awakening given to us by nature.
And much more... 🍃🌱

Yes. I liked Saoirse Ronan. She was great in the movie and I spelled her name wrong. But I don't watch that movie all the time. It was really sad and disturbing and bone-chilling. I watched that movie when I was very young and understood what the situation was. It's not made for the innocent.

Have any of you ever given up hope on finding love? How did things end up for you?

Totally. I'm 48 and have pretty much aged out of desireability despite being not completely unfortunate looking. I'm in great shape, own my own house, have had a great job and a retirement fund for the past 15 years. I'm smart, hardworking, fun, funny, confirmed atheist, and have no interest in children. You'd think I'd be a good catch. But it seems like the single/available men my age +- 5-10 years are either really screwed up or are just playing like dogs.
I think for right now it's impossible for me because I'm not really putting any effort in, nor do I have a desire to. I've been working on myself a lot lately, and as I dedicate more time to my own wants and needs, I'm finding myself less interested in finding anyone else because I'm perfectly capable of doing these things on my own. It's quite liberating, actually.
I don't know.... I am happy for the most part. Being single is all I know. I freak out a lot though when I meet someone that I connect with instantly and they feel it too. It's really awkward for me because I can't imagine them accepting all of me (like the really ugly parts). So that part sucks because sometimes I end up offending/hurting someone that I actually give a shit about (who is way outta my league anyway) because I've got these issues. I just tell myself it never would have worked for this and other reasons anyway. But yeah I am happy for the most part when I'm not thinking about that or when I don't come across people like that.
I wouldn’t say I’ve given up hope of finding love- but I know myself and I know that long term relationships and commitments are not a happy place for me. So instead I live in the moment. I have a bf right now and things are super lovely with him but I don’t think any further ahead with him than a few months. Because I know myself.
I went through a breakup not too long ago so it contributes to my feelings. I've had long-term relationships all my life but this is the first time I've felt a relationship hurt my self-esteem so bad that I'm afraid I won't be able to get it back. I am trying to work on myself and be happy (without a relationship) again. Some days feel better than others but I still can't help but wonder if it's just me, especially as I become closer to 30 and all my friends are settling down and starting their families.
I was literally doing the opposite. I had broken up with my girlfriend that fucking day. I just wanted to be single for a while, I was young and had been dating people constantly for the last 8 years of my life. I wanted to try being single and concentrating on myself. I had walked to the corner store to buy a pack and then walked to the beach to catch a ferry back downtown. I was standing over the water looking at the city when she, now my fiancée, walked into my life and it all went from that night.
