Forum: Do You Play An Instrument?
I'm reading a book about music and the author argues that older generations experience digital music differently, ie they don't think it's pleasant to the ear. Today I listened to an actual orchestra and I feel like I am missing out because I don't play an instrument. I'm learning how to play the uke, but I only know one song. I don't know if that counts.

Forum: What is a class that you took for fun
and didn't go towards your major. I'm no longer in college but one of the classes I took for fun was a one unit class on alien documentaries. After the class, I still don't believe in aliens but it was an entertaining class. Looking back, I wish I took more writing classes or art classes.

Forum: How often do you go to the doctor?
I'm so grateful that I'm healthy. However, I try to see a doctor every 15 months just so I can have a peace of mind. It's the best form of self-care.

Forum: What is one task you enjoy completing?
I love crossing things out of my self-operations list. It's the best form of self-care in my opinion.

The highlight of my today includes completing these two tasks. I signed up for my first therapy appointment (thanks Katherinejade for the support!!) and I bought my little cousin a used book called Rookie Yearbook One from Amazon for her birthday.

Forum: How has education changed your life?
In terms of college, it has definitely shaped my life! I think what I got most out of college was how to meet deadlines and how to handle tumbling rocks coming down towards you.

It also taught me that the prettiest, nicest, and smartest people do exist. Television is lie.

It has also taught me that people are really loyal to their alma mater, which I find weird but in an amusing way.

It has taught me that when you go to a "good" school, people respect you. That's not fair and it's really superficial.

Forum: How many pairs of shoes do you have?
I have 2 pairs of shoes! One is for workout, which I also use for professional work. I love where I work because it's a construction nonprofit so I can be informal as I where jeans and shoes with a strong cushion. Then I have my boots, which are falling apart.

Forum: If there were 25 hours in a day
If there was an extra hour, it would probably blend it with the other hours that I didn't even notice. I'd probably get more sleep which causes me to be more productive so I'd take up another hobby which makes me get let sleep. So it'd work its way back to equilibrium.

Subject: Do you like eating with your hands?

Forum: Do you like eating with your hands?
In my Filipino culture, we eat with our hands a lot. I used to think it was weird when I was little. It wasn't until college and post college that I met more friends who eat with their hands for dishes that can be substituted with a spoon, e.g. not a hamburger but curry and rice. It made me realize how a shame I felt for being embarrassed to eat with my hands growing up.

Have you tried eating with your hands for spoon-tradition meals? If not, do you like to eat with your hands in general?

Have a great day!

Forum: Coffee Creamer: Flavored or Unflavored?
Hi slynch8686,

I love flavored coffee creamers! My favorite is vanilla hazelnut. Though if I had to choose between plain half and half and coffee creamer, I like the texture of half and half better.

Forum: Do you have a pet?
Hi Ashleym2001,

I currently don't have a pet because they are expensive and requires a lot of responsibility. It's not the best time in my life for them, but someday I want to adopt a dog!

I do have a "alley" cat though that I would visit every day after work. He would hang out on this popular residential street just staring into space at his bench or on a bench getting hugs by little kids. His name is George and he does have owners but he likes to be independent during the day. Some days he likes the attention and some days he's too much of a diva.
