  1. Well done to both of you for completing the challenge. Thanks for the report, it sounds like you had a great time, but also that there were some parts of it that you'd prefer not to remember but it'll still be great thing to look back on.

    And you're now thinking of doing either Machu Picchu or Mont Blanc !!  I'm told that Machu Picchu is seriously difficult to visit.

  2. I'm really impressed that you've managed to save up so much money for your trip, very well done, and excellent achievement.

    It sounds like you've got a good itinerary planned out so all that needs to happen now is that you have a great trip and enjoy yourself, which I'm sure you will.

    As of right now I work in childcare, which is fun because of the kids, but my coworkers are absolutely unbearable at times. Its my first job and I'm learning a lot of new skills though, and I may be blaming the uncomfortably of those frustrations on my coworkers.

    It's always hard being the new person at a workplace, you get given all the grotty jobs that no one else wants to do, and because you're new you don't have the skills your coworkers have. The trick is to treat everyday as a learning day and also look beyond your workplace, use the Internet to find information about your job read up about products and procedures that way you'll build up a solid base of knowledge that over time your managers and coworkers will come to recognise and appreciate. But do not flaunt your knowledge, that's the best way to annoy people! Just get on with things and apply your skills quietly.

    Final tip: If you're offered any training courses, grab them with both hands especially if the company is offering them for free.

    ah yes, the great commute, a reason I think why it will always remain just a fantasy. 
    maybe in another life social interactions and crowds will be something I need not worry about anymore :) 

    Being a White Collar isn't all it's cracked up to be.  I wanted to be one, but maths and me are not good friends, so I ended up as a Blue Collar and over the course of my career I met lots of White Collars and most were stressed over deadlines and high workloads. One Senior White Collar even told me he envied my job because I had all the fun. He wasn't entirely right, work in an on-site repro unit could be hard but I enjoyed my job and yes, I had a lot of fun doing it.

  5. I've watched the "Colors" music video a couple of times and I can't make head nor tail of it. The animation just starts and looks like a series of  random incidents between two girls, then when the song ends the video abruptly ends and gives me the impression that the video was just background images for the song and once the song was over the video was just cut off because it wasn't needed any more.

    Overall I found it a rather poorly made music video when compared to Porter Robinson & Madeon's music video "Shelter", which actually told a story.

  6. The character I most relate to is Rin Shima from Yuru Camp.
    Like me she's an introvert who is happiest doing her own thing in her own time on her own. But, also like me, she's not anti-social and she will join in with other people and go out with them if she's asked and given the opportunity to decline and is not forced to join in. She is softly spoken and is willing to share her knowledge and interests with people if they're interested, but she won't force herself on people although she does care for her friends, often quietly and sometimes secretly.

    exactly how i'll be doing it!!

    sheesh man, well, at least you get to relax after working hard for so many years, you deserve it. i'd probably pick up some hobbies, do what my grandpa does and shoot some hoops at the park, or go on a walk. find some things that you might enjoy,...don't be afraid to spoil yourself either man. goodluck. 🤘

    Thank you. As well as watching anime I've got a couple of hobbies that I can now spend more time on I'm also involved with my local church so I keep fairly busy and don't have time to get bored.  I was fortunate to have a job I enjoyed doing, I did it for 48 years so I must have liked it 😃. But I don't miss the daily commute into central London.
