Sharing My World 2017 Week 44

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World.


Was school easy or difficult for you? How so?
Yes πŸ™‚ Depends on the lesson. Physics and English were easy. Well, English language. English literature was rubbish. I couldn’t understand what Shakespeare was saying half the time. Maths and Latin – urgh.

It wasn’t any fun, either. I don’t suppose it was meant to be. University was much better!

List some of your favourite types of animals.
Anything cute and fluffy. Like cats and whatnot.

What is your favourite large city you have been to? What is the one thing you remember most?
I’ll go with Stuttgart. I tend to avoid big cities and keep my head down, but I lived in Stuttgart for a year. Well, on the outskirts, but we spent a lot of time in the city. I liked the lovely gardens and the woods next to where I lived. It was before digital photography unfortunately, so no photos.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
My village friends gave me some lovely things this week. First, they wouldn’t let me contribute when we went to see Thor Ragnarok last Tuesday (great film, a must-see!). Then I got a “limited edition” school photo of their eldest, and finally I got a cushion sewn specially for me on her new sewing machine! Here it is. Pretty cool, huh? πŸ™‚

    Good answers, Ali. That pillow looks comfortable. I’d guess it’ll be a favorite with you. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne

    Hey! What Happened to SpiroBot? Missing her (it is a lady Bot?)

    Great cushion! Like you, high school sucked but college was like stepping into a different world! LOL! Great answers!

    Shakespeare was a hack. Physics and math would seem to go hand in hand (I came to despise both, at least on the college level), so it’s weird that you found one easy and the other urgh…


    • October 29, 2017 at 4:54 pm

      Yeah, it’s weird. I barely passed maths at university. Fortunately I only had to take it for the first two years, really dragged my grades down…

    Like cats and whatnot. Too cute. πŸ™‚

    I’m on the fence about the new Thor because of his hair.


    • October 29, 2017 at 4:58 pm

      Didn’t he look different with short hair? Like an accountant rather than a god. Great mix of action and comedy, though.
      (I nearly said who chopped it off but IMDB says it’s not released in the States yet and I don’t want to add any spoilers.)

    I liked English and literature. Was afraid of maths! And then ended up doing bookkeeping for a few years. Go figure πŸ˜€


    • October 29, 2017 at 5:01 pm

      I hated maths a massive amount. Still, bookkeeping sounds like a different type of maths to solving surface integrals and wave equations (physics-orientated maths) 😦

        You had to go and mention those sciencey thing again! πŸ˜€ I would not know a surface integral if I fell over it and the only waves I like are at the beach πŸ˜€

          I have happily forgotten everything about those dark maths times πŸ™‚

    College IS more fun than the school that comes before it. I keep trying to get this information through to my granddaughter, but she is stuck in how horrible high school was.


    • October 30, 2017 at 8:20 am

      There’s absolutely no similarity between the two whatsoever.


  9. October 30, 2017 at 2:32 am

    So nice to have generous friends. I am lucky like that myself.


  10. October 30, 2017 at 7:00 pm

    That cushion looks very comfy! I always hated maths at school, as well, though I found physics to be equally as unpleasant. English, art and history were always my subjects. Great answers, Ali. πŸ™‚


    • October 31, 2017 at 7:55 am

      I quite enjoyed art, though I have absolutely no talent for it whatsoever πŸ™‚

    I’m jealous … I want village friends too! What a lovely pillow. 😊

    That’s a lovely pillow, Draliman. What a lovely giftβ˜ƒ To be or not to be, that’s the… only thing Granny remembers of Shakespeare😹 not her cup of tea either…nor mine😸Extra Pawkiss for a Happy Weekend☺❀


    • November 4, 2017 at 6:43 am

      It is a lovely gift πŸ™‚
      Shakespeare made no sense to me. Too much like hard work trying to work it all out 😦

    Physics was easy? I might have to stop talking to you now. I took it for A level, failed the fist time, just passed the second and haven’t given it another thought since, phew. As for Shakespeare, it’s supposed to be performed on a stage, so why we have to sit and read it, get bored, go off it for life, beats me. On a more positive note, it’s great to know you have such lovely friends in the village.


    • November 5, 2017 at 6:09 am

      I ended up getting a PhD in Physics so I guess my brain is just wired that way πŸ™‚
      I guess Shakespeare would be worth giving a go on the stage. It would probably make more sense too. My village friends are great πŸ™‚
