Share Your World – Week of March 1, 2021

Is every piece of truth worth telling?   (credit to the magnificent Cyranny for this one)

No, I don’t believe every piece of truth is worth telling. There are some things that are just not worth to tell the truth for the sake of friendship, relationship, and kindness.

Whom do you miss more Freddy Mercury or Prince?  (if you don’t know who those people are, just skip this question.  It’s cool).

Weirdly, I’d have to say Freddy Mercury and not because I watched the movie Bohemian Rhapsody. My step-father loved the music by Queen and I kinda grew up listening to it. Strangely, he didn’t like Prince, so I haven’t heard of the Prince’s songs.

If you could only email or text people for the rest of your life (no other form of communication), which would you chose?  

I would choose email. I never liked texting. You can only fit so many characters in a text. With email, you drag on as long as you like, oh, and let’s not forget the full-size physical keyboard instead of the phone keyboard for texting.

Would you prefer to work the midnight shift at a really creepy out of the way motel OR work alone for eternity?

No, thank you to any midnight shifts anywhere. I am already working mostly alone, so that won’t be a long stretch.

Bonus question because yes, these are a weird bunch this week:   What’s one secret you’re still keeping from your immediate family? (no details required.  You could say something like “The lost weekend in 1982”.  You can also answer “Why I NEVER keep secrets from my nearest and dearest!”).

Oh my, I have kept so many secrets from my family like when bought a $400-dollar camera lens earlier this year and that I’m thinking of starting therapy, mostly because of the fear of overreaction and laughter because they seem to think a lot of things in my life is a joke.

That aside, My current biggest secret is I spent almost $200 at Target (the expensive version of Walmart) last weekend. I had a $25 gift card that was burning hot in my wallet and needed a few essential office items as well as a few kitchen items I’ve been wishing to have like a pepper grinder, bowl scraper, and new cooling racks. I walked out of there with almost $200 less in my wallet and and a brighter mood.

  1. Thank you so much Yinglan for Sharing Your World! Retail therapy (a shopping ‘spree’) is always a great way to feel a little better, isn’t it? I’m glad you could enjoy that. Starting some therapy in your life is a wonderful and brave thing and those who make fun or deride your choice are stupid (in my opinion). Improving oneself is never a bad thing, ever. I’ve gone through similar situations in my own life, so I understand! Best of luck with it too! Have a wonderful week!

    1. It’s rare I get to go shopping alone these days and I can only get what I want when I shop alone. So when I get to do it, I am going to enjoy every moment of it.


  2. Good answers. Don’t let your family intimidate you about the things you choose to do in life. As for the shopping spree, what are $25 gift cards for if not to get you into the store?? $25 is peanuts when you’ve spent $200, haha!
