Do you wear glasses?

Not a lot of people know it, but I do wear glasses. Whenever I'm outside, I'm always wearing my contact lenses, but when I'm home, I wear my glasses 24/7. I can't see a thing without them. I've never been completely comfortable wearing my glasses outdoors as I used to feel I looked ugly in them. Slowly, I'm getting used to myself in glasses, though. I feel a lot more confident than I used to.

Do you like when it‘s autumn now, Livi 😀🍂 ?

I do! I love the aesthetic of autumn more than any other season, but I’m not really a fan of the cold! That’s primarily because I work outdoors though - if I didn’t, then I probably wouldn’t mind! 🍁🍂🥮
It’s worth it to witness nature in such a state of splendour, and there’s something so cozy and comforting about autumn, it’s like being wrapped in a hug. How do you feel about autumn? ☺️

I can well believe it! Heat in the US seems to hit on another level, aha. I work in a coffee shop (the one that requires the dark uniform) and as a market seller in London :)
That sounds really cool! Do you enjoy your job? :)

Are you enjoying your weekend? I sure hope so 🙏

Yeeeaaaah... 😞
Saturday morning (and Friday night) I spend in job (night shift), and one of the managers, D., which was with me, told me "Fu..in lay down next to that fridge!" and "You're doing it to annoy me!".
Because of depression episode I can't do anything fast, I have problems with getting up from my bed, that's a miracle that I went to work alive, I was crying that night a lot because of my own thoughts, and after everything she told me to "f..kin lay down next to that fridge" and that "I do it to annoy her"...
After work, when I had to scan my badge and go home, I had tears in my eyes.
Another two menagers saw it and asked what happened, but I couldn't tell because of my messed up mind, I just couldn't tell about what I felt, that was just pure sadness and feeling so down that I couldn't even say a word...
The only thing I told was "Nothing".
Miss R. told Miss A. "It's probably because of what I told you" and she went off of the office.
I sat on chair in office and started to cry, that was hysterics, I couldn't even take a breath, I was just crying so much and couldn't calm myself down.
Miss A. was trying to do that, she told me to breath and after some time I was able to get out of office.
I went to the outdoors, sat on the ground and cry, hysterics again.
Miss A. told me to calm down and stop crying again, she was talking with me and it was the first time when she was so nice to me and cared about me.
Then she went on the shop hall and D. came to me, she asked "How is it - you did three palletes with dairy on the night shift with I., but you couldn't do one on the night shift with me?! You have more respect to I. than you have to me?".
I silently told her to leave me alone while still crying, but she didn't listen to me and continue to talk.
When she saw that I won't respond to her a word, she told" Ah, so we don't talk, you're making yourself a victim again, like always!" and she left.
Again, miss A. came to me to calm me down. (word limit xD)

What do you usually do to deal with really bad heat? What if you're at a place that has no air conditioning? 🥵

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
A simple trick is to run cold water over your wrists for a few minutes. If outdoors, find a body of water and submerge both forearms periodically - streams and rivers tend to be cooler than lakes. You may also use a cold / wet compress for your head or an ice pack. Lastly, try to avoid any direct sunlight and wearing dark colors since they can draw more heat. Ideally, you can also go around half-naked like I do. 🤣

What is some of your favorite food to bring with you when you're gonna eat outdoors? Like for a picnic? 🥪🧃

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
I haven't had a picnic in foreverrrr.
Sandwiches, chips, some beverages, maybe a cute little dessert of some kind, etc.

What would you do if you were alone and lost in the middle of the woods without food, water, a cell phone, a map, or a compass?

> food,
I can hunt, trap, fish, gather some edible plants / berries or anything that I may find. I've spent plenty of time outdoors and I'd know what to avoid. For personal reasons, animals would be my last resort.
> water,
Any body of water would suffice. I carry a portable filtration system is my truck, a basic survival kit, tools and some other odds and ends. Distilling water is relatively easy too. If no body of water is accessible, trees would be my option for water and syrup (maple is about 100 calories per ounce). Simply tap with a small tube (metal, pvc, etc.) and drain in a container. This takes time but I wouldn't have anything else to do and I could tap several while I'm waiting for help.
> a cell phone,
Smoke signals / flares / fire.
> a map, or a compass?
If I can see Polaris, the sunrise and sunset, etc., I can make a good determination on which direction I'm headed. Wild animals would present the greatest threat but I would be prepared for them too.

What comforts you the most in life?

omishqa_abbasi’s Profile PhotoUmishqa Abbasi
I wouldn’t really say that there is anything that comforts me, rather calms me down. What can comfort me is just having a good friend talking to me and…comforting me. I am not a big person on sharing my feelings with people. Things that calm me down from stress or anxiety, however, is being all alone with some music and enjoying the outdoors or maybe painting, drawing or making something. It is relaxing for me.

Pasta! I love the spicy chicken pasta from one of my local stores!
They do basically like a pasta buffet and you can make up your own boxes :3
So I tend to get the spicy chicken pasta, sweet chilli noodles, cucumber, lil potatoes, coleslaw and bacon bits :3

Rice and some fried foods? Sausages, nuggets, fried chicken. Idk what other families prepared for their picnics but my family bring fried food bc it doesn't have any gravy so there's no mess. We never really went for picnic but if we're on a long trip, we'll pack our foods like so :)

1) something that will not spoil on the way - for example, cookies.
2) something that doesn't get your hands dirty - sandwiches or wheat rolls.
3) something that does not require the use of cutlery - although I often take a bento with me for lunch in the park. Sometimes I put sliced fruits and vegetables in there.

LOL I do not. But if I did it would just be a simple sandwich and I would keep an eye out for wasps.
Seriously though I do not eat outside (because wasps).

Do you like travelling?

I am a tireless traveler. Travel makes me feel good, gives me energy, and makes me happy.
I was just in ayyuthaya (ancient city near Bangkok) I only had a rough idea of how to get around and I rented a bicycle instead of a motorbike cus I was a cheapskate. It ended up being 100x harder to get around and 100x more confusing. But the fun was that I just went where I felt was right. At each of the ruins, I had lovely conversations with other travelers about their trips and the locals are always helpful when I was absolutely lost.
Travelling may bring people joy through many ways. You may like to see beautiful cities and their landmarks, or simply their architecture and general atmosphere. You may want to see how different nature is around the globe and how surprising it may be to see the great outdoors. You may want to engage in different activities, from paragliding to dance classes, from rafting to riding camels in the desert, from balloon trips to hiking on mountains... you may want to experience different cultures and foods, you may want to know the history of the world in museums, or you may just want spend a few days relaxing in a beach or in a secluded lodge... you may want to know people from other places or you may want to go to big parties in a place where nobody knows you. These are some of the reasons why people travel, and only a few of them are applicable to me, for instance. Maybe some of these will appeal to you, or maybe none at all. It's for those moments that you just can't experience by staying home. I just got back from a trip where I could watch the sun come up while overlooking cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde and nobody else was around. There was a buffalo munching on grass right outside my cabin one evening. I've had too many extraordinary experiences to count over the years and that's what keeps me getting out there to places I've never been to.
My main hobby was photography. I then got into travel, and found that they were very complementary hobbies. The thrill of enjoying and taking in some place new is a cool buzz, especially when you have a camera in your hand and want to capture the moment to help relive it later on.
It's really hard to explain to be honest, it's just a feeling of exhilaration and excitement I get when I get to see new places and exploring an unknown (to me) area. It's a kind of passion which I don't really experience when doing anything else. The world we live in is so beautiful and there's so many amazing things to see, and I just enjoy seeing them :) whether it be interesting sights, cities, nature, or just people. At the end of the day we only have so much time on this Earth, I figure I may as well try and see as many interesting places as possible!

Where do you go when you need some inspiration?

Usually for a walk. I don't know what it is about being outdoors and surrounded by nature but it just gets the creative juices in my brain flowing! For example, earlier this week I was dealing with a pretty brutal case of writer's block, so I decided to take a quick stroll around my neighbourhood, during which I came up with two poems and an idea for a short story!

Do you like musicals or theatre in general? Do you have any favorites? 🎭🎶

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Yes, I like musicals. I've been to three this year - Back to the Future, Only Fools And Horses, and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cinderella. I like straight plays too, but other than seeing a friend's amateur performance last September I don't think I've seen one for a few years. I'm hoping to go to Shakespeare's Globe to see a performance later this year when the weather's better (it's outdoors).

Do You Have a Crush On Anyone Right Now?

I doooo - he's amazingly gorgeous, has these happy brown eyes that always look like they're smiling, a mop of curly hair that's a haircut away from being out of control, a crazy energy level and then just collapses and goes sleepy. You should see him outdoors - the world is one massive adventure. He's loving and kind and arghhhh, he's just amazing.
(Is this my boyfriend or my dog? Or both? Even I'm not sure, to be honest.)

🐱 Do you agree if you have a pet, it's part of your family? It's a shame that some people kick their dogs outside or their cats, like pets are part of the family in my opinion & you gotta take good care & show them love.

CazOSX’s Profile Photo(ɔ◔‿◔)ɔ❤ Cαzzყ. ★
Some pets just hate being cooped up inside and go mental until you let them out. It's enjoy being inside all the time. Every animal is totally different. My cat Bubba he was found well we rescued him from being thrown out of a car. He after we gave him medical care and a home. He refused to go outside after that. He was like that for 7 really funny, loving, cheeky years. All animals are weird 😂 they chose to do what they want. So if they believe that they're cats or dogs of the wild tundra and must live in the outdoors, others will be like hmm ya know what nope imma just lay on your sorry my big bed and you oh lowly peasant shall sleep at my feet. Seriously 😂

In your opinion, how much do shared interests matter when it comes to a relationship (or friendship)?

"Friendship and Shared Interests" by Alex
In my opinion, friendship is the foundation for all of my most serious and sincere relationships whether it be with my parents, siblings or with my wife and children. And for me, one of the essential building blocks for a successful friendship is shared interests. In the case of my wife we have many shared interests i.e.
1. Education - my wife has 3 degrees and I have 2. Our areas of specialty are completely different, but we both share the love of reading, curiosity, learning and contributing to society.
2. Music - we both enjoy music and have performed in church choirs our entire marriage.
3. Food - we enjoy good food whether we cook at home or go out to eat.
4. Exercise - we both love to exercise and have run many 5k races together and participated in triathlons together.
5. Vacations - we take vacations together and enjoy the outdoors, hiking, biking, boating, cross country skiing, etc.
6. Independence - we enjoy each other’s company; but, we also spend time apart because we are both independent. I am an introvert by nature while my wife is an extrovert and she has many friends while I have few.
7. Humor - we enjoy humor and we laugh together every day over the silly, the outrageous, the mundane and the nonsensical.
8. Faith - we both believe in God and are disciples of Jesus Christ
9. Friendship - the glue that binds us is Faith, Friendship and Family. Without friendship and shared interests our marriage would cease to exist.
10. Family - everything is centered about our belief in God, our marriage and commitment to one another and our family both immediate and extended. We ALL support one another through the good times and the bad times. We spend time with our children, our grandchild, our brothers and sisters and we helped our parents financially and emotionally when they were still alive.
For me, shared interests are critical in a relationship because without shared interests we would be like two independent vessels passing by each other as we seek different objectives, different goals and separate destinations. Instead, we work as a team and we make decisions together. We share our hopes and dreams together, support each other, encourage each other, and when one falls down (heart attack, cancer, depression) the strong pick up the fallen and holds them in their arms and carries them on their shoulders no matter the cost to self. That is marriage...that is friendship... AND..... that is Love.

What do you think is stressful about being a girl other then periods?

Over dressing during the winter then having to use the bathroom! Its not just pull down your pants its remove your jacket, ski pants, and if you have a big scarf that may touch the toilet you remove that too! Its really hard living in cold climates for a lady nothing about winter is fun if you're a true "outdoors woman" who needs to dress up to not freeze

do you enjoy being outdoors or do you prefer to be inside?

no preference really,
my work entails being indoors and that is fine
and I like to read and listen to music mainly indoors but sometimes in the park,
so getting outdoors seems really nice and liberating as well
so 50/50

You mentioned that Greece or Italy is your dream place. Could I ask what makes these countries your dream place? Thanks!

StephenInd’s Profile PhotoStephen Ind
Oh wow.. um idk it’s just that i prefer the outdoors and less crowded places that don’t have tall towers etc , Greece and Italy give me a minimal scenic vibe, And i’ve been seeing some clips of Amalfi coast, looks quite breathtaking to me honestly.

What do u do when u r down in the dumps so u can get better ?

sadcaged’s Profile PhotoMYTH
Go outside Breathe deeply, go for a brisk walk, sit on a bench, look up at the sky ~ whatever leads you to ignore what’s troubling you. Moving outdoors naturally gives us a new perspective. Taking just 5 to 10 minutes to move into a fresh new environment can be enervating.

Those of you who own, live with or generally likes cats, do you think they live better lives being house cats or if they roam freely? Why? 🐈

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
It all depends on the cat's personality, not even the breed like I used to think. My parents have two ragdolls, who've been bred to be the tamest cats you can imagine with zero interest in the outdoors. One's exactly like that, and yet the other one would permanently live outdoors if given the chance.
I don't mind or blame people who let their cat(s) go outside, but to me it seems safer to keep them inside, and only let them outside on a leash or in a fenced-off backyard.

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
I had one once. He liked to roam around the garden during the day but didn't go any further, probably because there were quite a few other cats in the area and he didn't get on well with other cats. He got agitated if he was made to stay indoors for too long. Maybe a cat who had never been outdoors would be ok, but I think once they've sampled the outdoor life they will never really be happy being kept in. Not unlike people.

I think every pet has a better life when they are able to live freely where they want to live. But in my regions are so many streets and roads so I am hesitant to let my cat out, would I live closer to the countryside I would just let my cat go outdoors but in my current situation, I don't want to put him at risk.

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's your favorite thing about where you live?

nai269549’s Profile Photoʟᴇɪᴀɴ ♕
I live in the middle of nowhere in England. The nearest McDonalds is 40 minutes away for example. If you like the outdoors then this place is perfect. Everyone knows everyone and you can walk a mile down the road and be in the most beautiful scenery you've ever seen.
I live on a river, in a secluded cove. It gives me access to the ocean, and adjoining rivers so there are favorites and new places to explore. The neighborhood I live in is very old. There is 5% turnover at best, no one ever leaves. So I can leave my door open all night and not worry about it, and UPS has no compunction about leaving a $700 laptop on my front porch in the dell box.
I live near a city, but actually on the outskirts of a very quiet village. So I can enjoy silence and nature, yet if I want to go shopping or need city life, all I have to do is get on the bus that stops a few hundred meters away from my house and within forty or fifty minutes I'm in the city's center. I don't actually need a car since I can do most of the everyday stuff with a bicycle. And also, we have a surprisingly awesome and fast internet connection.
My family is here, we get some good concerts. Summers are hot, winters are cold, and it's just a two hour drive if I want to go shopping in the US, see Niagara Falls, or visit a muséum or gallery in Toronto. I guess that's several things. My town: it's a good medium between rural and the city. 30 minutes in one direction takes me to the middle of the capital city, and 30 minutes in the other takes me to the country. But I can also get pretty much whatever I need without leaving my town itself. My house specifically: it's warm, dry and quiet. We're also lucky enough to have a good view of nature from our kitchen windows and we wake up to the sound of native birds. We've got a good bit of space and a great outdoor area for those months when we have great weather.
I'm about two hours away from North Shore Pittsburgh which is really convenient when concerts, sports, and other activities come around. But, for where I live, it's in a very quiet/isolated place. Peaceful, but I would prefer the city by a mile if I had to choose.
The apartment where my friend Larry and I live is next to the city zoo. The zookeeper for the Siberian tigers, Joey, gets a bit tipsy during his shift sometimes and forgets to lock a few things up. Because of that, Larry and I get to watch tigers chase and kill the ferrell cats that live around our apartment complex.
Honestly? I actually kind of hate where I live right now. Oh the suburb I'm in isn't too bad... It's just... not where I'd like to be I guess. I want to move back to my home towm... but my partner is from here and reluctant to move there.
I love my town and by far the most favourite thing for me to do is to go down for a walk in the garden of the Royal Palace and maybe end it with a nice dinner near the ruins of the Roman predecessor of the city.
