This feast took me quite a while. I hope you all enjoy it! I have finally remembered to add a hyperlink to the Friday's Feast button!
Describe a toy you remember from your childhood.
I have been very fortunate to have many cherished toys. Despite having lost some from garage sales, they are still a big part of my room, sitting on the ledge above the window blinds. I loved dolls and two of my dolls even now wear some of my clothes (that I used to wear when I was 6!). But I guess the most "interesting" toy to describe would be a stuffed pink pig with a striped suit, a brown cigar and a big head! At the time I write in this little booklet that my kindergarten teachers made (aged 4 or 5) it was apparently my favourite toy. While I have the chance, I should say that have not ever tolerated smoking, hence it was a surprise to look back some years ago and see that I liked the "smoked bacon" - haha, sorry, I couldn't resist :)
On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how observant are you?
I can confidently say 8 since I've been frequently told that I tend notice the slightest things, not to mention that I have such a trivial memory that I'll remember it long afterwards. Just earlier today, one of my friends found it strange when I told her that the bus we were on was slightly different to the usual ones (it was still a natural gas bus) as it had a slightly different bell sound (it kind of "echoed") and the grab rails were vertical (lower) to diagonal (upper) instead of just plainly vertical.
Where would you rather be at this very moment?
Anywhere safe with my boyfriend, just relaxing, no worries :)
When was the last time you learned something new?
I always learn new things everyday, not just at uni but in my day-to-day experiences. Today I learned some trivial things, like how much chocolate costs in a few different shops (prices vary wildly, surprisingly - I should also mention that I in fact loathe shopping and avoid it wherever possible) and that my high school English teacher, who I later visited, likes Old Cold Dark Chocolate! In terms of learning something more "knowledgeable" or "practical", yesterday at one of the places I volunteer (a retail shop that raises money for charity) I was asked to bank the money at the end of the day, which I haven't done electronically before. It was good to also "learn" the degree to which I was trusted to do so :)
Fill in the blank: I have ____________ but I haven’t ____________.
I have made some achievements in my life that I am proud of, but I haven't yet reached my goal to make a significant positive difference in the world and leave a desired legacy.
