There must be something about that. Iíll name it ďThe Orwell PhenomenonĒ

I myself can be quite extraverted in public sometimes, I don't have issues with talking to random people, I can freely engage with folks on random events, but I don't have an army of friends and don't let strangers to cross the line of my boundaries. With my private life I can be somewhat introverted, I enjoy my alone-time a lot, and I try to find balance between extraversion and introversion that are equally strong in me.

So, sometimes random people from the outer world confuse my limited extraversion with my desire to make friends with them or they think they can talk to me/joke about something inappropriate like if we were close friends already and this can be stressful if you can't say "who are you again? get off" (happily I can). And sometimes random people who witness my bad/introverted mood tell me I should be more open, more talkative and more positive and this is when "get off" tool can be useful again. Moral of the story: in most cases it's not up to the other people to define who you are and who have to be.

I met quite many people who suffer under similar pressure of the world expecting them to be more social, more talkative etc etc but this is not who they are and it's important to be reminded time by time that you live your own life for yourself, not for the others. If you don't disturb the others directly then everything is fine the way you feel it fine.

I like it. It's a nice new twist to your nation :D

Well I'm gonna go eat breakfast, I'll talk later.

What are you going to have?

Also NNU have you started to have breakfasts? >:)

Einswenn wrote:What are you going to have?

Probably cereal, or something else like eggs. That is if I'm not lazy enough to not cook them. XD

Wise words, Einswenn. I remember a student, who was extremely antisocial. He ran away from anybody who was not a teacher in the playground. And spent his lunches sulking in a corner. One day I decided to approach him. I struck up a conversation about random things, you know, whatís your favourite subject, whatíre you going to be when youíre older. Eventually he opened up. He told me that after school he would be viciously bullied and his mother really didnít care. His dad had lost a legal battle for custody of him. I felt sorry for him, so I told my superior and the situation was dealt with. We still talk from time to time.

Wow, Iíve just realised Iíve gone on a completely unrelated tangent.

I'll be writing a factbook on the meaning of it soon enough

I'm very lazy when it comes to cooking 😔 I need to live with a fan of it so they could cover this issue

I get what you're saying. I also try to help in such situations if I see [or just hope] that I won't make it even worse. A lot of people (especially the younger ones) who are not commonly-social have impressively rich inner world and imagination, once they open up you get amazed how cool and authentic they are

You just have to find something you're good at in cooking.

Einswenn wrote:I'm very lazy when it comes to cooking

Just get an airfryer. makes life so much easier (+it's healthier than a regular fryer, because it doesn't use oil, but air)

I fry water like a pro 😎

What kind of sorcery that is :O I've never heard of it for some reason or haven't paid attention yet because google search showed lots of local stores' offers

And if it's something like chicken it makes it more crunchy

Air fryers are excellent when it comes to fries or other stuff that you need oil for. They make the cooking easy, and provides a "fresh nutritional" feel which is somewhat dampened by the usage of oil.

Edit: I personally use them the most for sausages. It's brilliant.

A question for all:

When you boil water in a kettle to make some tea, what water do you use: tap water, bottled one, or maybe you have your own well?

Well, I do fry potatoes sometimes so it could be useful I guess. I need to learn more what kinds of dishes suit this magic machine

Search it up. Maybe it is in stock nearby

I'm sorry, who uses a kettle?

This post was made by Americans who use pots to make tea gang
