Share Your World – 15 May 2017

This week’s Share your World is basically me talking about things I like.

How many languages do you you speak?

My native language, Slovak, and English. At school I did German as well as English and later I learned a bit of Spanish but I forgot a lot as, living in UK, I don’t have the need to use any other lingo. I’ve always liked languages, who knows maybe one day I’ll speak another one fluently. Though nowadays knowing a different kind of language would be more beneficial–a programming language.

What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?

I’m reading Robot Visions, a short story collection by Isaac Asimov. I’ve blogged about Asimov before, he’s one of my favourite authors.

I’m watching a few things. American Gods on Amazon Prime, The 100 on TV and I just started Narcos on Netflix. I must mention the last series I finished watching and enjoyed immensely was Parks and Recreation. I think it must have been one of the best things on TV; funny as hell with a meaning behind it and characters that I now miss like old friends.

I’m not listening to anything in particular because my taste in music is all over the place at the moment. I’ve been listening to some Beatles as I recently visited the museum in Liverpool but otherwise I mainly listen to new-ish stuff. Though last week I searched for Ode to Joy by Beethoven on my Amazon Prime Music app and listened to every version they had. I was overjoyed about the result of the French election and Ode to Joy is an EU anthem and I’m basically Euro-trash and I’m not sorry about it.

My eating habits have much improved from the past, but I still eat too much junk food and chocolate. Also it turned out I had high cholesterol so I swapped my breakfast bacon sandwich for avocado on toast.

What was the last photo you took with your phone?

What is your favourite time of day?

Evening and night. I’m a night owl.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

What am I grateful for from last week? I guess Eurovision was alright. And you know, just being alive and healthy and all that. And the world looking more green.

There’s always weekend to look forward to if nothing else. And some pictures to take!

Share Your World – February 27, 2017

Some great questions in this week’s Share Your World.

Ever ran out of gas in your vehicle?

I don’t drive.

Which are better: black or green olives?

Black. They’re regulars in my salads.

If you were a great explorer, what would you explore?

There are sooo many great places to explore on this planet! I’d like to see with my own eyes all the nice places that I admired on pictures. To answer something particular, something that could be quite feasible–castles and coffee shops of continental Europe.

Quotes List: At least three of your favorite quotes?

I narrowed my million favourite quotes down to four:

ddm-quote

einstein-quote

darwin-quote-2

george-carlin-quote

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

My willpower for keeping up with eating well and losing a whole kilo from the previous week.

I’ve got a week off work so I’m looking forward to more reading, watching TV and just chilling.

Share Your World – January 23, 2017

Do you prefer juice or fruit?

Fruit. Apples, mostly.

Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?

Big and yes. Although it’s relative–the natives of New York or Tokyo or London would call it a village but it’s the largest city in the country and the capital.

If you were to paint a picture of your childhood, what colours would you use?

All of them.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I had my end-of-year review at work, which turned out great (though I suppose that means I should be grateful to myself for working hard in 2016). The 3 Million group, who are fighting for the rights of EU nationals in post-Brexit UK. And as ever, my family for being the absolute rocks they are.

So that’s this week. My first time doing Share Your World, I’m hoping to take part in many future ones.
