What really turns your stomach? (politicians aside)
There are many things that will turn my stomach – standing in high places, standing out in crowds, standing alone on a stage with lots of eyes trained on me, etc. Well, you get the idea.
Whether or not recycling is helpful OR if it’s really far too late for anything of that sort to make a difference?
Recycling does make a difference. I just wish more people are doing it and then it’ll really make a difference on the environment. I try to recycle when I can. For example, buy in bulk and store things in glass jars to lessen the waste of plastic packaging, throwing eggs shells and banana peels into a compost pile to let it decompose to use in garden in the future, and tossing plants that’s run their cycle into the compost pile instead of the garbage can.
What would YOU do with the immense amount of ‘garbage’ in the world, if there weren’t dumps or barges (Sorry New York/New Jersey) where it was taken to be processed?
Gee, I wouldn’t know what to do, that’s a lot of garbage, I suppose get a lot of hands to sort the garbage into piles for compostable (green waste), biohazard, non-decomposable, and others. Then let the compostable compost and might as well make some dough selling compost.
What’s the oddest container you’ve ever gotten a gift in?
I haven’t gotten many gifts in my life but the one that’s standing out in my mind, though the container itself isn’t odd but it’s certainly strange, is a Christmas gift I received in 2019 from my co-worker. As a department tradition, during our annual Christmas lunch, we would play the game of gift exchange. I picked a long rectangular box. When I unwrapped it, it was a very nice box for kitchen knives though the box was too light to be containing knives inside. It turned out my co-worker used a knife box to wrap a pair of men socks as a gift.
Do people behave differently during Christmas (insert your own holiday or festive season)?
Do they try to be better?
Do you donate something (money, clothes…) to charities?
Do you give something to homeless people?
I think some (not all) people behave differently during Christmas. I know I do. Christmas makes me (and probably lots of other people) happy especially when I see the holiday lights. It gets me in a festive mood.
Do people try to be better? Some try to be better while some people are just mean.
Do you donate something (money, clothes…) to charities? Yes, I try when I can or when I have a little to give.
Do you give something to homeless people? No, I don’t give things to any particular individual on the street. If I want to give to the homeless, I donate directly to the non-profit charities for the homeless because nowadays, it’s hard to tell whether a person is truly homeless or they are professional panhandlers.
GRATITUDE SECTION (As always, optional)
This is an allegedly joyful time of year. How do you, personally, FEEL?
I feel very anxious because my big surgery is one week from today. I’m not afraid the surgery will not go well, I’m afraid of the pain before and after the surgery. I’m afraid of the needle in my mouth part, the part where an IV is inserted into my arm and I’m definitely anxious about how the bone grafts will feel in my mouth.
Other than that, I love this time of the year. It signifies I have survived yet another year and I absolutely love Christmas movies. It’s the only movie genre that is a 100% guaranteed for a happy ending.
