    Not knowing anything about the educational system in the UK but from your post it doesn't sound any different from Germany's regarding not caring about individual people but just wanting to get everyone out the same. As if people were like that ... Individualism doesn't count at all. Sad but true. In my opinion that's part of the increasing numbers of people suffering from depression, burn-out and a lot more. Everyone shall be as the rest, the bigger part not even be too educated to think for themselves but just follow crap some others came up with. Don't question anything just function. And be able to replace somehow who got sorted out.

    I guess for the kids it was easy at some point because I acted as a mixture between teacher and buddy. Like we talked in a pretty lax way but I'm also pretty strict regarding rules. It's easier to show this to a kid. Convincing adults that think of you still being a child/teen/adolescent might be harder. On the other hand, if you work for a company and not self-employed you got hired and therefore must be qualified.

    When I started working with elementary school students (I'm not a teacher it was more about teaching them how to use a PC more than ten years ago because most teachers were rather old and had no clue of it but it had to be taught), being the middle of my 20s back then and 154 cm I really was afraid about being taken seriously. It worked but kids are different from adults I guess. At least my voice ain't high therefore it's pretty low in volume because I'm shy and an introvert and that doesn't help with talking to others and I have to prepare myself before to talk loud enough. It worked better with the kids back then and after them getting to me and the other way around things settled pretty fine (I can talk pretty loud when I feel comfortable). But talking in low volume doesn't help with people taking me as serious as they should now, too. And I guess being that short always just made people even think more I'm quite younger than I am.

    I have to admit it felt strange when it stopped. I still think it's pretty funny and sometimes I still expect to get asked. And in the end I think it's better than looking a lot older than I am (at least considering I'm turning 40 next year yet still feeling like 22).

    I've been through this when buying cigarettes until around 35. At some point I just awaited being asked and already smirked when they really did. Don't mind this I tried to take it as a compliment.
  6. Gazette Without any question. I've been doing for 12 weeks straight just now (except for listening to previews or full MV vids here when they got posted but just for trying them out once).

    Hey hey and welcome. I also can't pick a single album as a favorite but starting by favorite songs, I actually can't decide either. Like you said some are better some are a bit less good but still good though. ๐Ÿ˜…

    I never had a Spotify account or something the like. I dislike streaming. I'm still going by digital files from ripped CD's or sometimes digitally bought releases. I barely listen to any western music and when I do it's more for nostalgic reasons and there I'm back with ripped CD files.

    I mainly referred to those that get themselves cats that haven't been outside before so they wouldn't miss it. I've heard too many heartbreaking stories of cat owners also those not from cities. Like cats being in the fields in summer, harvester-threshed in that same field, accident. That for sure doesn't go for all cats. And I also know of people who always lived with cats in that way (cats outside, people inside) who don't have that deep bonds. If cats die by this, well, that's natural, something along that line. But I also know of others who are heartbroken and I don't get why to exposing cats to that risk, if not necessary (I consider a cat that's been outside all their life before as necessary to be outside in the future, too). Aside from this my cat suffers from several chronic diseases and needs medication on a regular base. It's hard to guarantee this when cats can be outside (it weren't an option for me anyway, big city, big apartment house). But from seeing so many people, seeing them worry how to establish such kinda medical routine when their cats get diagnosed with a disease and also by the risks that being outside helds (cats that only live outside usually don't get very old and that's for some reasons) I came to the conclusion to rather give cats a good living in a save environment. I don't blame people who don't do but I think those that get heartbroken easily by this should consider to change their mind in the future about it.

    I'd never let my cat be just outside, if I had the possibility. Aside from hunting I also see the other side like people poising cats (and also dogs) and all that crap. Nope. Never. And I'll never understand how people can do this to their cats (I'm on several cat forums and whenever someone starts like "I want to let them outside, they've never been" I'm like "why at all?"). Btw. ever lived with a cat that got raw fed? xDD It's not exactly the same as a cat after hunting but to me it was a similar feeling when mine came to me right after eating. Even though I like the positive aspects of raw feeing.

    I'm very careful when it comes to my stuff from Japan (but actually also for books, so it's not just this). And yeah, I also keep everything inside, stickers, those tiny flyers for upcoming tours, even those stamp cards shops like Brand X sent with the order. ๐Ÿ˜…

    I even keep the plastic wrapping the CDs come with. That's why I also leave the obi where it was when I got the CD. But I'm not as picky when it comes to buying used CDs. I love when they come with an obi but if it's missing I don't care, too.

    Didn't see this coming at all ... ๐Ÿ˜ญ
  14. Sounds quite nice even though it's a bit much synth to my liking.

    I didn't know the 2nd press also is sold out by now. I missed the 1st one and was thinking through some options when they just announced the 2nd one by the end of last year. I know it's up at iTunes but I wanted to own a physical copy of the album so I can relate you are searching for an option. I found it listed at a German shop that seemingly sends to the US but it seems all the order part is just put in German. You might check it out over here and see if this works for you. That's the link to the CD itself.
