Sharing My World 17-04-2023

Here is my post for Share Your World, hosted by Di.

Do you have a special talent (ie music, art, singing, dress making, pottery etc).
No, nothing I can think of. More a jack of all trades. Some trades. A couple of trades. No.

What was your best subject at school and was it your favourite?
Either English or Physics. They were both favourites of mine. I always enjoyed writing stories and I ended up doing my degree and PhD in Physics.

That was English Language, mind (in the UK, Language and Literature are separate exams). Shakespeare, Great Expectations etc etc… aargh! I enjoyed my German Literature more, at least they chose fun books to read (mostly).

Do you like to cook?
Not really. I do cook a lot of stuff though, mainly batches of curry, chilli, stuff like that. I like eating the result!

Do you get riled easily?
Riled? Riled? Why are you asking me this, for God’s sake, questions, questions, never-ending questions, it’s enough to make me… ooh! Looks like the answer is “yes”! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You don’t give yourself enough credit. I love the way you write and your sense of humor. I miss your stories on FF.

      I might take it up again. I tailed off when Dad was in and out of hospital and stopped completely when he passed away. See how it goes ๐Ÿ™‚

    A PhD in physics…awesome! I’m fascinated by physics, but didn’t do well in it at school. On the other hand, I did really well in English and French.

    What did you read in German Literature? Anything by Kafka? I love the story Die Verwandlung.

      Nothing by Kafka, that might have been a bit advanced ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve read Metamorphosis but in English. In German we read “Sansibar oder der letzte Grund” which was prose, difficult to understand and boring ;-). But we also read a couple of plays which were much easier and more fun – “Die Physiker” and “Biedermann und die Brandstifter”.

    Jack of no trades? The Dralidoodles staff just doesn’t get any respect for their immense talent…

    The last answer is hilarious! Writing, cooking and humour are all talents. Have some fun and try dress-making. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Having spent so much time in the venture-capital development world, I was surprised at how many people who got degrees in math and physics were also good writers. It’s would not have been a combination I expected. Especially because anything mathematical was never my best choice. Funny thing though. After I started working, all the math I never learned in school? I learned anyway. And FAST. Needing it to do my job was highly motivating.

      Yes, it seems a surprising combination to me too. I hate maths and was never very good at it but obviously I need to know a certain amount!
