    No, it happens to older (and even old) folks as well. People with more experience may be better at reminding themselves the feeling will pass, but they still go through it. It’s a brain chemistry thing.

    Where I live heating with gas is a lot cheaper than heating with electricity.

    I'm not into both but they could just state what they mean more clearly! Also because the question is not just 'does it contain Y' but like... how much, how explicit, in which context? That's why I like the way commonsensemedia rates stuff, so with different categories and a scale from 0 to 5 plus individual explanations for the scale rating. I know that's a lot... but even just putting up the scale for like 3-4 categories in the corner of a poster or the back of a DVD or whatever would be really nice ^me dreaming^

    Pansexual And Omnisexual

    Both pan and omni do mean the same thing, although in a lot of cases can point out very minor differences if reffering to the same thing. The first time I heard omnisexual was someone who confused pansexual and genderfluid and a lot of other things of the sort, so yeah. Their explanation of it was that they just liked sex, even they they, at the time were basically just straight. Go figure.

    Yes, perfectly understandable. I suppose that's why the word 'romance' came into being. To me it describes exactly what you have stated, an unrealistic fantasy world. I still believe however that this is down to young love and not to those who are more mature and know a bit about the real world. It would help enormously if children and parents got together on this subject if only to expose the fairy tale life of people who write these whimsical and nonsensical romantic fictional pulp!

    Pansexual And Omnisexual

    Well, the prefixes pan- and omni- refer to the same thing (all). However, since we have two different terms here, there must have been a slight difference between pansexuality and omnisexuality that led to the creation of the second term. I think that the prefix omni- is slightly stronger than the prefix pan- , as evidenced by its use in words such as "omnipotent" Your explaination does make sense. Just let me get some things straight. Bisexual/ Bi*- Attraction to more than one gender/sex (on the basis of the person but also their gender/sex) Pansexual- Attraction to people regardless of gender/sex Omnisexual- Indifference towards the gender/sex of the person you're attracted to Did I get that right?

    Was this the right answer?

    moving abroad - this time it's more serious. [aka my life in Belgium]

    Haha I had some Trappist beer at the place where they make it. It was good, but it was not worth the price they were charging for it in the city! 😱 Hm, makes sense! Now that you mention it, I remember seeing loud groups of drunk men singing in gondolas... Is that a typical thing there? My condolences. Belgium is pretty neat in several ways, but weather is not one of them. I used to take for granted the mild and sunny weather of the place I come from, I've learned to be thankful for it after talking to people from other countries and being abroad myself. Oh okay so that's probably it then. My guess is it's really just the expiration date of the card itself, and then it's probably just a matter of getting a new one, which will probably be much easier than the first one. Though I don't know what kinds of policies they might have when it comes to employment. I just know that "you're supposed to be able to support yourself" when you move to another EU country, but I don't know if any country is allowed to kick you out if you happen to be unemployed later on. I think they're not allowed to do that (though I think they usually do require you to have been living in your current country for a certain time before you can claim any government benefits, which makes sense). I'm not from Europe, and I'm not currently living in Europe, but I'm a dual citizen thanks to ancestry. I actually had to go to Europe to get my second citizenship though, because the local consulate here is just awful, and there's hundreds of thousands of people in the waiting line (it's kinda comical that there are several specifically South American parties for a European country, because of the number of voters abroad). The waiting time after you apply is literally longer than ten years. Then I found out that you can get a special "waiting for citizenship" type of visa in my other country and get it done there on your own with the local authorities at the place where you register as a resident. Managing to get registered as a resident is not simple though... So many little devils in the details, though work wasn't a problem for me because I work online. The police officer who visited me just asked me what was my occupation and then wrote it down and that was it (technically I think I wasn't even allowed to be working back then anyway, sort of a gray area). I was lucky. The whole thing was stressful, but it was relatively quick. In the end I didn't even need my visa ID card, and I got my regular ID card two days before a little EU vacation of mine that I had planned. It's kinda ridiculous how many countries I could theoretically move to without a visa or even a passport, because most of South America also works pretty much like the EU in that regard. So it's almost two entire continents. At one point I even considered the possibility of living in Easter Island (awesome place!), which is halfway to New Zealand but is technically Chile. Way too expensive though (understandably -- I mean... it is halfway to New Zealand after all ). I think chances are I'll end up in Uruguay someday. Pretty chill place, apparently very uncomplicated to move to.
  11. I've Heard A Lot Of Opinions Saying Pansexuality And Omnisexuality Are The Same Thing. Coming From An Omnisexual I Think They're Two Different Things. Pansexual Is Where You're Gender Blind When It Comes To Dating And Omnisexual Is Where You Acknowledge Their Gender But Couldn't Care Less. So Yeah Please Tell Me Your Opinion On Pansexual And Omnisexual Because I Would Love To Know What Others Think :]

    I hate the "adult content" warning. Do you mean gore and violence, which I'm super into, or sex scenes, which I'm super NOT?

    there is always some fuss. after all, it's a different country with a different culture, language etc. etc. but indeed, being the EU citizen makes things more smooth. no visa, no anything like that.

    I didn't understand that one could just move around within the EU to whatever country you choose to live in, without too much fuss. Good for You!

    ...and here's me thinking he already had!πŸ˜† The press conference with Mr Tusk saying that hell was still empty was a comedy classic. I'll try to post it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet.

    what I also love about my workplace is that except for salaries, they also give us an amount of 140€ on a meal ticket. it looks like a credit card, and you can pay using it in shops or some restaurants. like McDonald's for example so in case we have no money, we use our meal tickets and everything's fine. I also know Pizza Hut doesn't accept them. which is sad, because every Tuesday they sell pizza for half price and we go there a lot.

    moving abroad - this time it's more serious. [aka my life in Belgium]

    okay so I can tell you that I managed to avoid this loop and I can tell you how. it's just that my workplace requested a temporary number for me once I signed my contract. later I had some troubles with paperwork and all that jazz when I got a real number, but it's been fixed anyway hahaha that's completely true and ffor this reason I decided to buy a set of 12 different beers for my dad as a Christmas gift - all of them were brewed in Brugge. my dad said most of them was awful πŸ˜‚ we have lots of bridges here (hence the city name - brug means bridge in Dutch, so there it is). at morning and afternoon hours the traffic is terrible, not only we go/come back from work or school or whatever, but also bridges are open because boats move, too. it's not funny when you're in hurry πŸ˜‚ I live basically in old town, so we pay quite much for a rather tiny apartment, but it's okay. it's set pretty close to our workplace, so it's even better. :3 she's right. the amount of paperwork you need to do before you obtain something is just incredible and some things take months to complete. πŸ˜‚ btw, Belgium is basically no different from my home country when it comes to paperwork, taxes, even weather, so it's easy to feel like home thanks! I must say I have had it much easier than any other person moving abroad - I basically got everything straight into my hands. for example, I didn't need any work agency - and this is very good. agencies can be tricky and you usually earn a lot less than "normal" workers. I got a contract that is the same as my Belgian workmates have and I earn the same money as they do. I worked here before, just because my previous workplace sent me there to help, so I could see it from the inside before I decided to stay. and since I have friends here, other things were easier. for example, I didn't have to look for accommodation - I already had it. are you in a country different than your own? I am from a country that is a member of EU, so things went smoothly, and from what I know, the amount of years I am allowed to stay by now is just an expiry date of my ID, so it can be extended once it expires. that's probably it :3
  26. That's really heartening @Mz Terry... I've never seen a newt here although we had loads of little faces looking out of our pond in london. I heard that either newts or frogs will colonists pond but they don't live together for long.

    Yays for puppies!😊 On the forced air front, all the houses in the area I live were built with it in 1989 but some folk have removed theirs and replaced it with radiators. I still have it, because when I moved in (2014) the previous owner had left the equipment although they didn't actually use it themselves. Mine's gas fired but I'd much rather have electric like yourself @Semisweet
