Forum: Should humans eat to live or live to eat?
I say live to eat. However, I know that there is food disparities across the county. People in poverty don't have access to much food and for them they eat to live. I would love for the entire world to live to eat. Enjoy trying new foods and experience the wide variety that could be offered. Enjoy snacking with friends and make it a social activity. That is one main reason why I love food, because I live to eat!

Thanks!

Forum: What is Your Favorite Fruit?
Hey!

My favorite fruit are raspberries. I love that they are sweet yet tart. They are the perfect pick me up snack for me.

They are a bit expensive though.

Thanks!

Forum: Country living or city lights?
I would pick city life over country life. I really like the suburbs best though. I like to be near things, but I don't like to be too over crowded. In the city there is always something to do. Living in the country, you have to be creative with how you entertain yourself. There are more opportunities in a larger city.

Thanks!

Forum: What's your favorite comfort food?
Hey!

For me it is guacamole. I am lucky because avocados are very good for you, so enjoying guacamole every once in a while isn't a bad thing! I love missing it with fresh tomatoes, onions, garlic, lime juice. Delicious!!

Thanks!!

Forum: Silence or background noise?
I prefer background noise. I like to listen to music or sports broadcasts when I am doing school work or work around the house. It provides a nice ambiance! When I sleep however, I like it to be completely silent!

Thanks!

Forum: Do you remember peoples’ names?
Hi!

I admit, sometimes I can not very good at remember names. But faces are another story! I remember faces from when I was a young kid. I may not remember their names but I remember that they were in my life at some point and if I see them eventually, I remember their face and perhaps our relationship. I am working on remembering names especially at work. I am a teacher and I kind of need to know the names of all my students. I make tricks in my head. For example if a student's name rhymes with something, I can say that in my head to help remember!

Thanks!

Subject: Re: VHS tapes and DVDs

Forum: VHS tapes and DVDs
Hey!

I have only a few VHS tapes left. I only took the home videos with me when I moved out and none of the actual movies on VHS. I don't even own a VHS player anymore. I also have a few DVDs. I barely use the DVD player that I own, but I keep it just in case. If I want to watch a movie, I will stream it on my computer or TV or go to the movies. It is crazy how technology goes from being the biggest thing to an antique. That kind of blows my mind. We spend so much money on these devices for them to only go out of style or functionality within a couple of years.

Thanks!!

Subject: Re: The Last BIG Decision you Made

Forum: The Last BIG Decision you Made
Hey!

The last big decision I made was to propose to my now Fiance. It was an easy decision because I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her but it was very difficult deciding how to pop the question. I wanted it to be very special for her because she is very special to me. She loves me and I wanted to her how much I care for her.

Thanks for listening! Have a great day!

Tom
