Are you an avid reader? If yes, who helped you develop your love of reading?

My parents, first by teaching me how, and then by planting me in the local YMCA's afterschool program, which was so unstructured and excruciatingly boring that I did nothing but read books or solve the problems in logic puzzles/recreational mathematics magazines until my mother came to pick me up.
I could say that my second-grade teacher helped, but she did everything she could to hinder me. She would physically wrench books out of my hands on the excuse that they weren't "age-appropriate", by which she meant they were of a higher reading level than was "normal" for 2nd grade. She had an obsession with pounding out any differences and making all her students average. She would have been an excellent teacher of the gamma children in Brave New World. However, if she'd allowed me to read, then I would have because her classes were boring too. Part of her obsession with making everyone the same involved handing out the same worksheets every day until every student could get it. And she handed out all the worksheets for the day in one go. So I'd finish them all in an hour, sometimes because I'd seen them so often that I had the answers memorized, and then try to read, which would infuriate her. I love to read! Mostly fantasy, like Harry Potter (all time favorite), Hunger Games, Divergent, Scythe, A good girls guide to murder, currently reading book 5 of The dark tower by Stephen King. As a teenager I read quite some Dutch thrillers and other Dutch books about drama, romance, etc. As a adult im more drawn to English books.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I had no frikking clue man I didn't have internet or even a pc/laptop so I had zero exposure to stuff. Even matric main bhi mujhe bus itna pata tha k matric k baad fsc, phir bsc, msc, aur phir teacher lag jate hain log 😂 Honestly yar koi idea hi nai tha dunia ka zara bhi. But I always loved teaching and it still has a sort of special attraction for me. Any kind of teaching job, really

Is anyone planning to travel next year?

I went abroad three times last year (Czechia, Poland and Spain), already been once this year (Iceland) and am going again in 3 weeks to Spain. Will probably go again later this year too, thinking maybe Portugal. I'm not putting my life on hold any longer and I really struggle to see why flying to Spain is any different to taking a train to Cornwall. Honeymoon got cancelled last year, would really like to rebook it but while we might be able to guess how covid will be playing out here, I have no idea what it'll be like in the country we want to go to. Also don't want to go through the pain in the arse of cancelling everything again, that was a nightmare. We've booked a honeymoon (Japan) for April 2022. If it can't happen, it can't happen and we'll look to go perhaps the following year. We've booked and paid for the flights and the hotels are all held on booking.com (no money paid). I've booked early because I don't want to leave it so late that we're out of options especially as we're going at a peak tourist time. And really I don't see it as a problem, the flights will get refunded if it's cancelled and all the hotels have short notice cancellation policies.
Also messed with out honeymoon/holiday/ wedding. We're just seeing how things go with the view of going away for 3 weeks at the end of next year, nothing booked yet though. We also have a week penciled in for November. Just a nip to somewhere closeish like Prague, again nothing booked yet.
The majority of the adult population are vaccinated, with boosters coming in autumn - not the same situation whatsoever. Cases are spiking but deaths aren't, we can't be forced to stay inside forever in case someone catches it and dies. Over a year of people's lives wasted, children's education down the drain (I'm a teacher and my god, the Year 7 students are basically like Year 5 kids, if that), mental health of many suffering. Every time restrictions are lifted, cases will spike - we can't be caught in a cycle of open/close otherwise it'll go on forever - the virus won't go away, ever. Got a cruise along the Spanish/Portuguese coast booked for November 2022, not payable till next August,, so we'll wait and see before fully committing, but hopefully by then, things will be a lot better. The only kind of insurance you'll get for Covid will be for if you test positive or have to self-isolate. You won't get insurance for the possibility of Covid related cancellation - the risk is simply far too high for any (mainstream) insurer to sensibly take on.
I'm super grateful that covid hasn't played havoc with my health or finances, however it certainly messed up my holiday/honeymoon plans! Is anyone thinking of booking 2022 holidays? I'm eager to get something booked but I'm worried about travel insurance, can anyone recommend a decent insurer with covid protection? Or should I just steer clear of booking anything for a while?

How do you learn Japanese language? I also want to learn it, can you guide me please, I don't have a teacher

I’m currently learning Japanese through Duolingo, but I really recommend to only use that as the basics. There are many sites and people that offer free lessons online. 😊
I also suggest you start learning a language like kids do, so children’s books can help a lot. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find Japanese children’s books locally yet.

Has your teacher ever helped you cheat on a test?🕴️

مزے کی بات بتاؤں ایک۔۔۔ ایسے استاد ہوتے ہیں ویسے، صحیح فرما رہی ہیں آپ، جن کے سال بھر پڑھانے کے باوجود آپ کو نقل مار کے پاس ہونا پڑتا ہے۔ میرے ساتھ معاملہ ایسا رہا کہ میں نقل کے بنا بھی سکون سے پوزیشن لے لیا کرتا تھا۔۔۔ اس کی وجہ اگر آج سوچوں تو صرف یہی سمجھ میں آتا ہے کہ ان استادوں کے ساتھ جن کا میں نے پہلے تذکرہ کیا، کچھ ایسے اساتذہ بھی آپ کو ملتے ہیں اس علم کے سفر میں جو آپ کی ذات میں آپ کا اعتماد مستحکم کرنے میں آپ کی مدد کرتے ہیں۔۔۔ تو ایسے ہی کچھ اساتذہ مجھ جاہل کو بھی نصیب ہوئے۔۔۔ خوش قسمتی تو ہے ہی لیکن ساتھ حیرت بھی ہے کہ کہاں وہ سُچے ہیرے موتی اور کہاں میں ایک جعلی کانچ کا ٹکڑا۔۔۔
اللہ ان کے ساتھ بہت نرمی والا معاملہ فرمائے، آمین۔۔۔ 🌸

When people say, "Everything happens for a reason," what do they mean?

AhmadBakheitMndo’s Profile Photo∆HMED
I just remembered that time when our Arabic teacher told us about that , like you can do your best at something and things just doesn’t work but it all happens for a reason like it all happens for your own good even if you won’t understand that now , I think that everything is connected, everything that happens, it helps you to get to know yourself better , because you can’t control everything, you’re not supportive to , and it feels so safe that you can always pray to Allah , that you’re not alone

A young boy was rushed to the hospital emergency room, but the ER doctor saw the boy and refused to operate. “This boy is my son,” the doctor said. But the doctor wasn’t the boy’s father. How could this be?

I remember my high school English teacher telling us this riddle, because the doctor is his mother not his father🙂

What was the meanest thing someone ever said to you?

AdrianaRafaela98’s Profile PhotoAdriianna Rafaella
I started one in junior high and listed some of the hottest girls in school. The gym teacher/football coach's daughter happened to be number four. He found out and drags me into his office. He starts yelling and going on about it being a list of easy girls and asks why his daughter is number four. I just laughed at him and told him it was because she wasn't as hot as the other three. He later became my drivers ed teacher in high school. I didn't get my license until I was 18.
During elementary school a group of kids usually played touch football during recess. Teams were always picked at the start. Well it came down to me as being one of the last people and some kid said "raise your hand if you don't want pagglesnuss to play." Enough people raised there hand for me to die a little inside. Played 4 square for the rest of my elementary school career.
When I was in high school one of my ex boyfriends (who I was friends with after the breakup) called me saggy ass. It confused the shit out of me. How could I have a saggy ass? If my ass was any perkier it would be out of place. That comment still haunts me. Every so often I think about it and have to check it out in the mirror. I'm still so confused...
It truly is near impossible to forgive oneself sometimes. Due to how the human mind works and the often monotonous experience of modern everyday life, so many happenings can cause one to recall past mistakes. I've made more horrible choices in my life then i'd expect any 10 "normal" people to make and it's taken so many long nights of hard suffering reflection to come to the conclusion that the only way one can ever truly be happy is to chose to be. It is so simple for us (everyone) to try to rely on people, events, and all happenings in our lives to be the greatest factor in how we judge ourselves. I don't know you or anything you've gone through but I promise on everything that makes me who I am, that you aren't alone and things can always get better. Be it you are a day away from suicide or just won the lottery, life can always improve. Sorry for such a long response, I've just recently gotten out of a several year long period of pure hell and I honestly believed I would never again smile, let alone feel anything relating happiness. Just have to take it moment by moment, sigh by sigh, and inward reflection by reflection. You mentioned forgiving yourself, but whatever choice you made in the past that now keeps you from peace, I'm sure at the time you had a good reason for making it. The past is just that. Let it be. (sorry again for the long ass reply, you just hit a spot with me. Elementary School was a bad time for me. I was made fun of for no particular reason. Had a lot of bullies pick on me. I could handle them though, just a constant struggle. What really got me down was what my then crush said to me, "I wish you weren't born so that I could stand in line next to [douchebag]." It hurt pretty damn bad to say the least.

Interesting? Could you just leave or did you have to do some sort of check out/check in?

From memory, we had to submit an application to leave at a particular day/time, and if it was granted we were given an early leave pass (or something like that) which enabled us to leave at that time every week. I kept that in my schoolbag in the event of a teacher trying to prevent me from leaving, or if I was approached by a person in a position of authority and asked why I wasn't at school. Luckily, that never happened; I think most people in positions of authority knew that people in year 12 jerseys from my school probably had permission to be out of school during lunch/early afternoon.
And yes, I believe we had to sign out at the office before leaving, so they were aware we were no longer on the premises (which they had to know for legal reasons, I assume).

So, as an INFJ, would you consider yourself to be good at writing? Maybe not to an extent that you would pursue writing fiction as a career, but have you ever been told that you have an aptitude for creative writing?

I think writing was my first artistic/creative passion, before I even knew it. This was one of the first descriptions that confirmed I was an INFJ. However, I don't think it's exclusive to creative writing. In fact, I would guess creative writing is more of an INFP thing (but I could def be wrong.) English was always my favorite subject and I always enjoyed writing essays. I pretty much always got A's on my essays when I actually put effort into it. I always felt like this: "Writing is my favorite because it's the one place where somebody HAS to listen to me. They cannot "skip" certain things I said. They cannot run away from something I'm saying, or block it out. It's all there, written down, and organized perfectly. They have to go through one sentence in order to get to the next." Plus, my brain doesn't work better in any other form of expression or thinking. To me, writing really ignites my logical side and marries it with my emotional side in a way that comes off "wise," or in other words it really balances the feeling + thinking and brings out their best potentials. Reading and writing-wise I like poems and essays, but couldn't care less about stories. To me, stories are like the image of something, more artsy, whereas essays & poems are more direct and concise, to the point. I like dense things, more philosophical and existential than portrayals of such by way of character and plot, if that makes sense. All of that to say, that's why I don't think the "creative" writing aspect is so much an INFJ thing as it is just writing in general.
Once a guy fell in love with my writing and stalked me for quite a while and in highschool I wrote a poem that made a teacher break down and cry, but most people think my writing is incoherent and difficult to read. In all seriousness, I do have a thing for writing. I just find it so incredibly boring to do that I feel my talent is a waste, I'd rather give it to someone else who has a passion for it.
In my diary, I really try for a stream of consciousness type narrative about my days: what occurred, how i felt about it, etc. I just let it flow and don't censor myself at all. In talking to others I always end up omitting things, and it's difficult for me to sift through the webs of what I feel when it's a tangled mess in my brain. Seeing it on paper is so helpful! And I treasure my journals more than anything. I like to write from experience so they're also really helpful in world-building for stories.
People tell me I'm a gifted writer. I'm too critical of my own work to say anything beyond that I'm an apparently convincing hack, lol. I do think that I'm a gifted editor, though.

What is one of your fondest memories of your mom/dad as a child?

My mom worked during the day, and my dad worked nights so they didn't have to pay for daycare. My dad has so many homemade "cooking shows" of 5 year old me pretending to be Julia Child. Including a makeshift chefs hat out of a diaper. We also have a few videos of me pretending to be Tony Little in an infomercial. I was a strange kid. Also, I wouldn't classify this as the most awesome memory, but when I was 7 my dad took me to get my hair cut. I had long, thick, and wavy unmanageable hair. Think of me as a less smart Hermione. Anywho, he decides it'd be a great idea to get straight across bangs. As soon as my mom saw me, she threw up her hands and said to my dad he's stuck styling them. Style them he did. He took a curling iron to them, which he'd never used before and got a little too close to my forehead. I had an awesome burn across my head for like a week. My dad. Back in the 60's when I was about 10, my dad would take me out on Alton Lake on his fishing boat. It wasn't fancy. It had an outboard Johnson motor. He used to let me sit on the bow, straddling the metal "loop" that the rope was connected to and we'd jump the waves after the barges came by. Alton lake is actually the Mississippi River in front of Corps of Engineers' Locks and Dam. This without a life vest. Boy, back when I was a kid there were no seatbelts in cars, helmets on bicycles....surprised that there is so many of us boomers still alive!
My parents rarely ever spoke when I was a kid, and every time they did they were pretty much always arguing. My siblings and I would often wake up at night to my dad throwing things against the walls and floor, and my mom begging and crying. My family was pretty broken, I'd say. We were financially unstable and my dad was never around, used to be off to hang out with friends. Sometimes we'd go for weeks without seeing him.
My mom and I didn't have much when I was growing up. Not being able to afford daycare/sitter, her boss agreed to let me stay behind the counter as she worked the cashier in a gas station. So 6am, she would gather me in blankets and carry me to the car then place me on a makeshift bed by her feet, and work until next shift.
He was/is! I'm not really sure what my mom's deal was. When I joined band in 5th grade, I wanted so badly to play the clarinet, but she made me play the flute because she did, and then pressured me to switch to bassoon because that's what she had done--but she never taught me (or helped me practice) either. & that's awesome about your dad, too! I don't think I've ever heard my dad play anything aside from guitar and harmonica, so we never had a duet, but that would have been a really great experience!
My mom was a piano teacher before I was born, so we had a piano in our house.
