how has your october been so far

if your daughter were in a situation don't know what to pursue in future.. what's your advice on her?

Great question.
I would ask her to close her eyes and imagine what she would like to do as a career. I would also remind her that choosing a career is a difficult task because if done properly, it involves perseverance, passion and creativity and talent.
As a parent, I have provided my daughter with many opportunities and experiences such as: (1) earning her black belt in karate, studying piano, violin, golf and art, so that she would develop sufficient skill in these areas to help her decide what her passion is. All parents can really do is provide the education and learning experiences so their child can make well informed decisions.

Study tips for an adult with ADHD?

- take a couple short breaks while studying, like 10 minute breaks.
- change your environment, like for example go outside to a park or maybe a coffee shop or some other place of your liking.
- sometimes multitasking while studying helps, it prevents you from feeling bored fast. Like put some music on while studying or a tv show. It might be too distracting for some, but personally I find it helps.
- Make a schedule, stick it on your door or your mirror where you can always see it. This will help you from forgetting your deadlines. Or you could even put reminders on your phone.
- Divide your work in sections. Give yourself a few days to work on an assignment.

If you like learning about history, what is or was your most favourite thing to learn or that you learnt about?

JoshyHartwell’s Profile PhotoJoshy Berecz
🌷 Historical events and the people from the book - Torah, Gospel and Qur'an.
Because there was a time when I was a little girl that I thought the stories from those book were just like from the fairytale books, I thought they were just fiction. But studying history, I learnt that those people actually existed and the events did happen.

Good morning M. How are you today? I just got back from Church and am quite pleased the our priest actually had the courage to discuss the sanctity of life. For me, the purpose of church is to celebrate life and to protect and defend ALL life no matter the age, race, physical condition, etc.

Good morning, Alex. Thank you for reaching out and asking how I'm doing, refreshing to receive such kindness to my inbox. 🙂 Your morning at church sounds very pleasant and profound, it's the kind of topic I would likely get quite emotional from because there's nothing more valuable than our lives and as one becomes older, and loses loved ones then I think we can appreciate the concept of life more, with a continuing hunger to learn more, experience more and to give more to others. I think I'm rambling a bit but it's a topic of conversation that I could talk for hours about.
I am doing well thank you, trying to ignore my back pain and diving into my work. Studying and doing my assignments gives me a natural high. 😊❤️

What gets you excited about life?

LunarHuntress’s Profile PhotoYentl
The many adventures that are still ahead! Sure, I have seen quite a lot of things already but there's so many things I still want to do. Then there's also moments such as raising a family etc. that are also adventures in of themselves ☺ I'm very excited for these next few weeks with the student musical, working at the nation, swimming with the team and such! I'm beyond happy that I can finally get the most out of the student life, something I haven't really been able to ever since I started studying 🥳

Best time management tips according to you ?

Don't waste time on computers/phones for long🤠, activate self-focus mode so after some time, apps can't be used till we disable the mode🤠, wear ⌚, and can even watch 'Study with me' videos or can Listen lo-fi music while studying 🤠😁⌚,
Time will be efficiently managed, I believe 😁🍃

Best time management tips according to you

What was your life like growing up?

I had mostly everything I could ask for. I learned how to ride a bike at a really young age. I was born and raised in the west coast so I was always outside doing something like riding my bike around town or playing basketball.
Growing up was pretty shitty. I was a fat kid from a single mom home. Mom worked her ass off for us, but wasn't around too much because of it. Went to school in a not-too-nice area. Wasn't a complete ghetto with bullets flying around, but there was a stabbing on campus while I was there. 2 people I graduated with are now on death row for rape and murder. So it wasn't Compton but it wasn't exactly safe either. 50% of the school spoke no English. Entire classes were taught in Spanish. Was pretty crazy. Got bullied a ton. I wanted to do well in school and I learned that if you fight back you get suspended too, so I just took it. I had kids who would kick/hit at me just to laugh at how white skin changes color (becomes whiter for a second) from the pressure "Look it left a footprint on him!" Kept my head down, worked hard at getting good grades, and got the hell out of there. Went across the nation for college because I wanted to get the hell out so badly. Now life is good. I've got a good job that pays well, a lovely wife, 2 great young kids (2 years and 3 months each). College was a blast. Made all the world of difference to get the hell out of a bad area and into a place where people wanted to be smart. Spoiled only child who got most of the things I wanted, although I was taught not to want too much. Learned to talk and read early, school was a joke, got good grades every year without trying and largely without studying or doing the required homework. Now I am not even a year out of college making good money working regular (7-5ish) hours. Personality is largely unchanged, I'm very nice to most people but also very entitled to my opinion and don't do well around stupid people or people who can't be criticized. Main hobbies include guns, art, music, snowboarding, videogames, weightlifting. Tl;dr, I was a spoiled only child and I think I ended up becoming a pretty good guy (especially taking into account the type of people I see more and more every day. The quality of people I see on a daily basis is becoming more and more disappointing.)
I had a tough time, we were on and off homeless, my mom bailed on my dad right after my brother was born. My dad is back to being homeless My life's not terrible, trying to figure out ways financially to afford college and work in Ca, and I live with roommates. Trying to find a new job so I can struggle a little less, I definitely work too hard to be this poor.
I was hyperactive in grade school and I got yelled at so much by my teachers I started wearing hoodies every day by 5th grade and by freshman year of highschool I had become mostly antisocial outside of my small group of friends. Still don't do well making new friends.

I want 2022 to be full with business opportunities.
I want to be able to graduate before the summertime. I’m so done with studying! I feel like I’m slowly getting ready to work in the field.
In 2022 I want more opportunities to go away for a weekend, to go to spas and to go to the Efteling (an amusement park). Due to covid and due to the internship I’m not able to go 🥺

How many hours a week do you spend studying Russian? And maybe you learn some other languages?

Just_Your_Shadow’s Profile PhotoПолукровка
It depends on the mood. I want to increase it to several hours a week at bare minimum. Maybe taking an hour a day to learn. One of my challenges is pushing past mental blocks, and not procrastinating.
I've spent time learning some Italian, but I have never kept track of how much time I spent learning the language during the week.

➥ Do you sleep with your door open or closed? Do you keep a little light on during the night or do you prefer it dark? Window open or closed? What makes you easily fall asleep?

megansworld932’s Profile Photomegan
Falling asleep isn't a problem for me. I'm usually super exhausted and close to passing out every night, but I tend to keep myself awake out of fear of "nightmares". They aren't like typical ones, like some obscure memory of something you might have seen or heard mixed with a good amount of weird happenings, but memories of my past, repressed feelings of guilt and a lot of unresolved trauma. Long story short, sleeping ain't my thing, but after some time I gotta give in and that usually isn't really relaxing. Most of the time I'll wake up in the middle of the night and well, suffering. Oh and also I removed the door to my bedroom. I don't exactly know why, so there ain't a deep reason. Not that I know of, tho. I don't need light to sleep, but since I usually pass out in the middle of reading or studying the light usually stays on. I love to keep my window open when it rains or there are thunderstorms.

Has "living" on the internet been normalized in a way? In these days, *almost* everything we do is on the internet/is somehow tied to the internet. Studying, working, socializing, shopping, etc. Years ago, being on the internet a lot was seen as bad, loool. You'd get made fun of and taunted.

yeah, it's definitely become normalized -- and tbh, it really does consume people at times to the point where it becomes *very* unhealthy. there are obvious benefits to the internet, such as accessing a wealth of information and making friends and joining communities. but at the same time, it makes me wonder how difficult it must be for young teenagers to figure themselves out when the internet is essentially telling them who they are for them. if that makes sense.

do you celebrate teachers’ day where you live? if yes, how did you show your appreciation/gratitude for the educators in your life? 🧑🏻‍🏫🏫📒

nurbzee’s Profile Photonurulhuda
We do celebrate teacher's day here. However, on my part, I didn't really talk to my teachers, be it when I was studying in secondary school or Nitec in ITE. I was always missing during lessons etc, so I did not have the reason to. Yes, I was wrong. They eventually gave up on me, like skipping me when handing out practice papers, and forcing me to leave school premises once school hours were over, and not allowed to come back to school after graduation. Sorta banned. The teachers advised by juniors against hanging out with me, too. (I actually vandalized the school toilet with graffiti tagging on the mirror on my last day but teachers didn't know who did it, and my juniors didn't snitch.) So I never had that type of bonding with my teachers.
Teachers are great. Despite my ways in school, I respect all educators. All routes in life start with the guidance of educators, regardless the field. I was the one who was ignorant.
However, in technical diploma (which I am gonna finish in two weeks' time), I have been in the right mindset cause I have changed. I formed good bond with my lecturers. My class bought/made our lecturer gifts.
And to u, I'd like to wish u a happy belated teacher's day.
(Yes, I was one of the few problematic Express stream students. Rare breed for my school. 😅😭)

How tech-savvy would you say that you are? Do you for example know what do to if a piece of tech is acting up in some way? 📱💻🧠

TobbeAsks’s Profile Photoᛏᛟᛒᛒᚨ
I'm pretty tech savvy...I often help the IT people when they miss the obvious stuff. I’m terrible at this stuff. Tech support representatives recognize my voice very easily. I call on my son's extensive expertise and skills in this area.
I don't have any training in computers or tech. anything, but I'm usually quick to troubleshoot most computer/laptop problems. Much to the satisfaction of my parents and grandparents who are far from tech savvy. Savvy enough that my family members call me when they have a computer problem. Not savvy enough to not need to google the answer every time. I left the city and have been working in hydrogen fuel cells and now I am in industrial controls. I have a library that smells of rich mahogany.
You're just a straight shooter with upper management potential written all over you.
I work in tech support, so hopefully pretty tech savvy.
My sister and I get in to debates about how best to solve technical issues, so I'd say savvy enough.
Compared to my parents? Extremely. Compared to my friends? Probably average. I don't mean to brag, but I did manage to log on to Ask today. I'm studying for my A+ cert which is a basic IT certification to get a help desk job. I have no background in IT so it's been a struggle but I'm getting better at it.
I've not yet had much learning in computers, but I can use most basic programs. I do, however know how to build and program simple robots (I have only ever dealt with 2 inputs/5 outputs. I can also use this knowledge to make other electrical cuircuits. I have only ever used BASIC for these bots. I am working on building a gaming PC, which I will use to learn about computers further.
I'd say that I am very well versed in the ways of technology. I'm currently working towards a Bachelors degree in Computer Information systems, and could likely go out and test for several network and server administration certifications such as the CCNA. I've definitely enjoyed the low-level and embedded systems stuff the most (and it seems to be what I'm best at).
Java is my main language, but I've coded in Python and C, dabbled in web stuff, played around with some PHP and Ruby. I'm pretty savvy and if I cant figure it out I call my son.
Extremely low in tech savvy, though most seem to think I'm very pretty high in tech savvy but in reality I just notice patterns very well and remember how something was fixed the past time someone fixed the problem. Also very even tempered so the problem doesn't frustrate me easily and I can keep at it. Call my cousin's dad he always sorts it out 🤣

Do you try to make it a rule to study French or whatever language you're learning and devoting your free time towards improving a language?

Not anymore! France for the French! Travel is mere luxury-. You can't really immigrate anywhere, so I do not bother learning. The lockdown isn't ending in my lifetime! Au revoir Paris.
There's plenty of people on here from all around the world whom I'm sure would be happy chat in their mother-tongue. It's a great way to improve your vocabulary.
My plan was to devote 30min a day for language improvement (through listening to podcasts, learning new grammar stuff) + try to watch movies in that language every now and then, buuut I couldn't stick to it. ''Life got in the way'' but I really only have myself to blame for it. I'll try to start over; Studying a language, to me, means watching TV shows in that language. For example I found that my French had become a bit rusty, so I watched "La Forêt", a French TV show.
I'm not as rigorous with it as I'd like to be, but I often use my commute time on the way home for it. Just to keep the wheels turning in my head so to speak. I do anki/flashcards sometimes during my break when I'm not talking with Ginny and on my offdays.
Basically, how much time I devote is essentially random (sometimes none, sometimes hours) and how much I feel like doing. I guess the key is to keep doing it regardless. I do think sticking with 1 or 2 until you've mastered those makes more sense though. I don't really have the answers to doing it right, it's just how I do it.
The longer part is do it until you brain fries, which when you start to learn a language happens in 1-3 hours; you just kinda shut down. There's like a multiplier effect the longer you go as well, meaning your more likely to retain things the longer you study every day.
Whatever is best for you. I don’t really set times, I set tasks. I listen to one 15 minute audio lesson and review my Anki deck then level up once on Duolingo. I’m not going crazy on it right now as I have school to do as well.
Currently learning Latin, Spanish, and Japanese. They actually work pretty well together, because Latin and Spanish make it easier to learn the other, Japanese has a similar grammatical structure to Latin, and learning 3 different languages has made my mind better an analysis in the few weeks I've added Spanish and Japanese to my list and helped me stay interested in language learning and not get burned out. However, it is worth noting that I tend to focus on one for a few days to a week, and then focus on another one, and so on. This isn't really on purpose, it just shifts according to my interests at the present.
One. Korean. I plan on learning it for life. Maybe down the road (like a decade at least since i'm a beginner) I can pick up french again. I took french for six years in school and did really well because I engaged with it and did self study outside the class, so I'd like to pick it up again. But even with that foundation;

We don't as far as I know 🤔 But I have given gifts to teachers who've met a lot to me and especially those who helped me reach a certain goal in life. For example I gave a gift to a math teacher who helped me improve my grade in a very intensive maths course. That improved grade was what made it possible for me to get into the program I'm currently studying at university 🎓

What is the biggest regret of your youth?

I wish I took the opportunity to study abroad while I was in college instead of working all the time. I don't know if I necessarily regret it since my working has allowed me more advances/opportunities in my career than my peers (and now I can travel whenever I want), but there's something about experiencing another culture while studying that's deeper than just visiting.
Not learning another language. There was an option in highschool where I could have taken half of my classes in Spanish. All of my friends who took that route still speak conversational Spanish. I just wanted more time to fuck around and to keep highschool super easy so I just took the required 3 language classes and didn't retain any of it. I now work in the medical field where 30-40% of my patients are Spanish speaking only and it seems much harder to learn and remember now then when I was younger. Also I love to travel to central America, and I have to rely on my spouse to translate in many places. It's just such a useful skill that opens so many doors.
I'm 20 and my biggest regret is ending my friendship with my childhood best friend. We had so much more than I realized in common and I threw it away over what I now realize is stupid reasoning - stuff that makes sense to a kid but isn't actually sound. I've never made another friend like him and struggle to make any friends at all; I miss the easy, weird friendship we had. I tried to message him on Facebook recently and he hasn't responded. I can't say I blame him. In his position I wouldn't talk to me either.
Going to college. I now work on the low rung in a factory. There are people who were making $30 an hour there at my age, and they're not much older than me. Plus, they rake in pay for their hours, while the college-grad suits in the office (the youngest of whom is in his early 50s) get salary and maybe a holiday bonus whether they work 30 hours a week or 60. Most of the longer-term blue-collar employees make a good bit more than management, and I could've started on that ladder when I was in high school and be fucking set right now, instead of being forced (under threat of being disowned by family) to go to college for an ultimately useless degree, and now i'm starting that blue-collar ladder at age 26. My parents told me not to pursue many careers I was very interested in, because yes they were right there isnt much positions out there for some of them for example conservation officer, but I have a lot of drive and potential in me so I believe if I set my mind to it I can get the career I want. I felt this way even back then but didnt follow my gut. Glad to see you're getting back after it and following your dream as well, I want to be a counselor so psychology is definitely where it's at.

Do you prefer day or night?

nai269549’s Profile Photoʟᴇɪᴀɴ ♕
Daytime. Night time just makes me depressed, for some reason...especially if I’m the only one in the house who’s awake.
Night. It's like I can do whatever I want because that's when I don't have to work. And when you have to drive around there's nobody else on the roads, whenever you have to get into a line it's shorter than during the day, there's a lot less pressure to rush things, and the temperature is cooler since it's summer right now.
Night. But ironically I go to bed latest 2 am. I'd end up being woken up by family talking or outside sounds and not be able to fall back asleep. But the few times I've woken up at 4 am and not been able to sleep, (besides being insanely tired), I really enjoy the wee hours of the morning. Everything is so quiet, it's nice.
Night time. It's cooler out, I love the colors outside, and everybody else is going to bed. My friends across the country are getting out of work if they're not home already, anyone I live with is usually in their room, and it's just a peaceful sort of solitude that gives me back all the control. I've had the entire day to get ready, wake up, and really get the momentum for whatever I want to do.
I prefer the day to get stuff done. Work, chores, errands, etc. I prefer the night to be lazy, but nights have always been harder for me mentally. Whatever bad thoughts there are get amplified. Not always, just sometimes.
Night. It's calm, there's not many people in the streets, no lights, no one to see me dragging the body, and I love the cool night breeze. I feel fully at piece at night. Theres no rush, no presence, I'm truly alone, and I'm pleased to be alone with my thoughts, because honestly sometimes, the way people are occasionally, and if you're in the wrong crowd, being with people during the day when time is still busy and deadlines need be met, it just makes you feel lonelier. At night I'm relaxed an at peace, and I have the world to myself.
I love the calmness of it. When I was in college (still living at home), I sorta fell into the routine of studying at night when everyone else was asleep. Having 3 younger siblings and living in a house where non-immediate family members were always coming in and out throughout the day just make it difficult to study during the day. I ended up sticking with that routine even though I'm now in grad school and live on my own. Its just become engrained into my lifestyle now.

How easily stressed out and frustrated do all of you get?

I get stressed out very easily. I have to write out lists for everything and make sure I give myself adequate times.
Stupid things like waking up late and being rushed by my husband will send me into a meltdown. I’ve noticed that when I don’t have sleep I am basically manic. I’m still trying to learn how to deal with my anxiety, too. I really want to be a more calm person but I think my anxiety is really the underlying issue. I'm very prone to stress and frustration and I've never been able to calm myself down. I've always needed to ring someone that has had to talk me through. I hate it and wish I could calm down on my own but my thought patterns just gets worse and worse. My ex described it as getting in a 'tizzy' so thankfully it's been seen as an endearing trait rather than something that destroys relationships but I'd still rather not have it. It took a ton of trial and error for me as a pretty chaotic person. I screwed up many times by planning too much, that would screw up room for flexibility. Sometimes you gotta take a shit that doesn't exactly go smoothly, so then maybe something has to shift. Having room to shift in to that would otherwise be used for something with a lower priority was the biggest lesson that changed planning for me as an otherwise chaotic person. The rest is just practice. If you never really think about how long certain activities take (going to the gym for a 30 minute workout might take an hour+ in total depending on all kinds of factors) or what's actually reasonable (studying for 3 hours or cutting it up into two 90 minute sessions) or what works best for you (cleaning in the morning/at night) then you can't expect it all to work right of the bat.
I grew up having a rougher childhood and I basically devoped in a way that a can't stress about things. It's honestly horrible. When you can't stress about things it is extremely hard to find the motivation to do anything. Have a big test coming up but not stressed about it? What is there besides just the thought that you need to pass to motivate you to do it? Most of the time I entirely forget about the thing I'm supposed to be stressed about. Stress is a good thing, don't take it for granted, but don't let it run your life either.
I've just accepted that I'm going to constantly be against obstacles. It's not that I don't worry, and it's not apathy, I just have a deep understanding of my emotions and how not to let them get the best of me. Losing control and stressing makes it worse.
I cannot always control my stress, but I can control my reactions to it. If I cannot get out of my own head about something within a minute of processing, I will do something to distract myself from meditation or some cleaning with music playing.

Do you watch the credits when watching movies? 🍿🎬

CazOSX’s Profile Photo☠️ Spooky Emo Panda. ☠️
I do, for the most part! This will probably sound lame, but I always want to see to the end of the credits to kind of acknowledge the full extent of the crew on the production; this may be due to studying theatre and film, but I feel like it’s respectful to recognise all of the work that everybody puts into the film, not just the cast and the heads of the main production departments. Everyone has their role to play, it’s what makes film so magical :)
