Has a product you bought ever truly dissappointed you? What did you do about it? 🛒😑

Last week I bought a couple of avocados which were described as being "perfectly ripe". They looked and felt alright but when I got home and cut 'em open, they were rotten on the inside...
I was pretty annoyed since avocados aren't cheap. If I had taken them back into the shop I probably could've gotten a refund but I am awkward and I hate complaining so I just threw them out.

Why are u giving up alcohol?

Because it is holding me back from living my best life. Or to be a little more specific, alcohol is de-railing both my mental and my physical health. I am not an alcoholic - in the sense that I'm not dependant on alcohol- but I'm what could be called a "problem drinker". I don't drink too often but when I do, I drink a lot.
Faaaar more than I should.
Over time my bad drinking habits have taken a toll on my body. I have gained a LOT of weight over the past year and my mental health has also suffered. Alcohol used to make me feel relaxed and confident but these days, it sends my anxiety skyrocketing.
All in all, I've come to the realization that I am better without it.

Why do you not want to post a photo of yourself?

Privacy and security, mainly, but also because I don't want to be
judged solely on my appearance. I have found that not having a photograph limits the amount of 'shallow' inboxes I receive.
People here are often far too quick to judge a book by its' cover. So, I've taken my 'cover' off. If someone wants to know me, they will have to actually read my profile, my bio and my answers, and see what I have to say.

"Chinese police took my baby out of the freezer, gave it to me as if he is giving me ice-cream. I did not know my baby was dead. I said he is cold, please give me blanket...
My hands bled from their beat!ngs, each time I was electrocuted, my whole body would shake v!olently and I could feel the pain in my veins, I thought I would rather d!e than go through this torture and begged them to k!ll me.
There were around 60 people kept in a 430 square feet cell so at nights, 10 to 15 women would stand up while the rest of us would sleep on sideways so we could fit, and then we would rotate every 2 hours. There were people who had not taken a shower over a year."

Is English an easy language to learn?

It has a very broad vocabulary drawn from many languages over some 2000 years. These include Latin, Greek, German, French, Scandinavian; more recently (last few centuries) Indian and other Asian languages; and nowadays a lot of Americana - which tends to ignore etymology with a very few, rather peculiar results. Plus others: algebra is close to its Arabic root, for example.This polyglotism gives English many of curious spelling and pronounciation results - e.g.:
- Ruff and rough rhyme with each other and with tough, but not with through.
- Through rhymes with too, two and to) but not or bough
- Bough rhymes with bow the gesture but not bow the knot, which rhymes with no.
The language has a lot of formal grammar rules, as most languages do, and they allow you to write very elegant, accurate, clear text, and to speak very accurately, mellifluously and concisely; but taken too far they can make everyday speech sound a bit stilted.
On the other hand, English does not assign genders to nouns, as happens in French. It does have irregular verbs but the verb constructions generally are fairly straightforwards.
Neither does English have generic and familiar forms of the personal address you, as in German and French. Just to make it more fun, the British Isles encompass four native languages of which one, Welsh, is still spoken and written widely if only within Wales; and even just the English of England comprises many accents and dialects. Not the easiest nor the hardest.
Some of the hardest don't even use their voices. If you can't whistle you would be very hard put to say anything in whistle language of sfyria on the greek isle of Evia. 🙃😈 Except when that word is drawn from another language and follows the rules of the language of Origin. Like Octopus and Octopi. And we deal with gender assignment differently from many languages, although in my view a more logical manner than some.
And using different Anglo words for the farm animal and the French derivative to the animal as food is another sticking point. Confusing for those with another European language as a first Language.. Nonsensical to someone starting with an Asian language base. Just even think about "there, their and they're" many English speakers don't know the difference
It would be confusing to learn, my sister in law has foreign students every year who stay with her and go to school to learn English, they come from France, Spain, Brazil Italy and most of them have had more than one language already, they all told me that it was very difficult and complicated compared to other languages, however they all successfully learned.

How did you come up with your username?

leahtvergara’s Profile PhotoLeah V.
I tend to keep all my social media username with the song. I keep it different and unique from others. Because I am unique.
When I created this account in 2015, i created specifically for someone else so that I could talk to her and obviously also to give advices to people in need and help as much as I can. Taylor's Song You Belong With Me is amazing and I felt this specific person no matter what, actually belongs with me. So, that's the story of how I come up with this username @YouuuBelongWithMe
P. S. - The 3 U's in YouuuBelongWithMe was to make it available as other options were taken already😋

Something you want to say about Pakistan's economy?🇵🇰

ansaazhar111’s Profile PhotoAnsa
Pakistan's economy is shrinking, unemployment is rising and various sectors are in crisis. The pandemic has also taken a devastating blow on the Pakistani economy. When Khan took power in 2018, Pakistan's GDP growth was around 5.8%; now it is 0.98% ig. and is likely to decline further. The country's fiscal deficit is almost 10% and revenues have plummeted in the past two years.

Hello Ms or Sir! I can't really tell from the back of you! Are you lost or in trouble maybe? Did you come here to seek the colors? I'm trying to find the rest of my group too, I'm one of them but..all my friends seem to be busy doing something.. I have a bad feeling they might get into trouble if they keep taking off alone!

How are graduations usually held where you live? There any specific ceremonies and celebrations afterwards? If you've graduated yourself, how'd you describe how that day was for you? 🎓

TobbeAsks’s Profile Photoᛏᛟᛒᛒᚨ
When I graduated, we all went to a hall to collect our gowns (we rented them, but there was the option to buy if you wanted to) and could get a photo taken with a fake scroll also there haha. And then once we got those, we went to a theatre venue, and waited till we got called on stage basically. I always thought the certificates would be real that was given to us, but we were just given a hand shake and walked off stage haha. Lieeesss).
Then after the ceremony, my University held a party at the main campus for any of us that wanted to go, and classes could do the whole throwing their hats in the air photo thing (theyre not called hats are they, I forget what they're called..caps? haha) But i was with older members of my family that couldn't walk too far, so we skipped that part and we went to a restaurant to celebrate instead.

If you want to get married, would you like to have a big wedding with lots of guests or would you like to keep the amount of guests small? 💍

"If you want to get married, would you like to have a big wedding— "
I don't want a wedding*. not in singapore, anyway. but I do plan on getting married.
"...with lots of guests or would you like to keep the amount of guests small?"
the smaller the better.
"...I am very much anti-wedding because it costs so much money — especially when those funds could be used in a couple’s future investments (housing, insurance, their children’s education etc).
it’s really the solemnisation and pre-marital courses that are important to me (and to so many of my peers who share the same concerns)."

Write about your first love.

Nostalgia must have a list of debts that she'll never cancel out. All of those promises that she makes you when you're trying to fall asleep - it's just pillowtalk for her. Because she's just like the girls you meet in the bathroom: It wasn't your fault, babe, it was a case of wrong time, wrong place, wrong wine, wrong face. Nostalgia loves to send you off to sleep with the most peculiar feeling in your heart: you'll wish you hadn't given your cuddly toys away, because you desperately need something to hold onto.
But Nostalgia doesn't know where to draw the fucking line.
See, she's still waking me in the night. I'm so much braver than I was, but I still keep a light on. She'll shed crocodile tears whilst she wonders how you are - How's the new job going? Did you buy the boat? Did you lay those stepping stones? She loves to think that we're a story that just got interrupted. The page was dog-eared, the book put aside.
But me? I've got questions, too. Did your girlfriends find out about each other? Did someone report you? Have you taken it too far again, yet? Did one of them release the videos? Has any of your sorry trail of broken souls caught up with you?
Nostalgia doesn't like that. Because you were - are - beautiful. I have written a hundred poems about your god damned eyes. Everything you did seemed utterly bewitching to me. Nostalgia doesn't like the moment that the glass shattered.
I keep saying that I will never write about you again. Maybe one day I'll mean it.

Mine was in the Royal Albert Hall. I had the obligatory photos taken, and was presented with my certificate on stage along with several hundred (maybe a thousand) others. The ceremony was a good 4 or 5 months after I actually finished my course so me and most of my classmates and friends were already in jobs, so we had a bit of a catch-up in the bar but I don't recall any official celebration as such.

Both of the ones I had were held at the Royal Festival Hall, which is right by the River Thames and quite central, so that was lovely. I was graduating with all of the courses from my campus and two others, within the umbrella of the university I studied at (if that makes any sense?!).
There’s basically a lot of talking, everyone gets called up to the stage to shake hands with the dean of the college, you collect your certificates backstage and then there’s food and drink after (which you don’t really get to see as there’s so many people there! I doubt the students got a look in, aha). Prior to the ceremony, you can opt to have professional photos taken, which I didn’t do.
After that you can take photos with your friends and family in the whole graduating regalia, and that’s about it really! I lucked out with both of mine, they were incredibly sunny days so that made the day even more memorable :)

I try to be nice to people but end up getting bullied. These people belittle my successes, highlight my failures and copy my lifestyle. How do deal with these situations without getting involved in drama?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
They're just miserable. Best bet is to ignore them. When people hate on others, it's because they wish they were just like them. You're doing something so effortless, and doing it so well, yet they try their hardest and get nowhere. They get jealous because you're going so far ahead despite doing way less work. Or at least that's what it looks like to them. They may wrongfully assume you're doing no work, but in fact, are doing more work. The work just may come easier to you, and you can have more fun at it while they have a rough go at it.
Highlighting failures is one of a million reasons why they're jealous. They wanna find every little mishap you did, so they can use it against you. Only problem is -- that doesn't work because people will be like "well, everyone fails at times, it's no big deal". It just comes off as childish, and they're less inclined to be taken seriously.

What makes you worry?

Losing a longtime friend.
I am fiercely loyal to my friends. There is nothing I would not do for them. But sadly people change. Circumstances change. Lifestyles change.
Suddenly you are now taken for granted and dismissed when you had put so much of yourself into that friendship. It is worse than if they died. At least with death you will always have fond memories to get you through the tough times.
But when a close friend disappears from your life, you always have questions. How could I have been a better friend to them? Did I completely misjudge this person? Was I the one who changed?
When a close friend leaves your life, they take a piece of your heart with them. At least that is how I feel. That is what makes me worry especially when they refuse any form of communication to explain their feelings. 🥺

Bad girl = whatever the female equivalent of "bad boy" is. Do you think their confidence is equally attractive to men (like you said the appeal of bad boys are to women)? Or do you think men and women are into different things personality wise?

I honestly have no idea because I am not a man I can't speak for men. But from what I have observed girls who are meaner and know how to keep people especially guys in their place don't get taken advantage off as much. Girls who come across as innocent or kind are seen as easy prey and the douchebags are more attracted towards them for that reason.

Ur views on malala's post.

First and foremost i don't endorse the notion.
But her statement was surely taken out of context and like always people just jumped the bandwagon and started bashing her without even checking for themselves.
It was a light-hearted chat and she was just being candid in the interview and like any other inquisitive mind she just frankly asked her mother the ✌️Controversial✌️statement to which her mother immediately corrected her and I'm sure we all at ages question our beliefs, it's just human nature.
But the bashing was way too unnecessary and sometimes disgusting in my opinion. I feel that criticism could've been more constructive, if any.
