    • In a few paragraphs, summarize the novel or screenplay you would write if only you had the time.
      • If I only had the time and the talent enough to write a novel, I would write about a human being living this world as a dream and waiting to wake up only to live his real life. His "waiting" time is the plot and how he spends it in peace and serenity, seeing sarcasm in every difficulty and never considering any blessing his "whole" world. That's how I can picture a real happy man. I think this novel and only this one can truly end by " And he lived happily ever after" I may also consider adding this man's family to the plot, I think they'd add to the joy. Actually I wish I were that man; Who do you think doesn't?!

    • On the Radio
      • old radio

        Yes, sure. I believe life was much better before television. While listening to the radio you can do whatever you like... from house chores to running errands. It's with you in the car, on your mobile, mp3 and 4 and all these "fascinating" new devices. The best thing about it is that you're free to look wherever you wish. Radio for me equals freedom of TV. I might sound old, but I am standing up for my right to save my time, yes we're in the "post TV." era we have now internet and a whole lot more stuff to get sucked up into, but we still have the power to do something useful with the internet... to connect, to share, to learn, to contribute to. As long as we're doing we're learning, we're growing, we're changing... and that's what I like about the radio, it gives me a space to live.

    • A Wasteful Habit
      • Deep-thinking

        Negotiating with the devil inside my head; whether it was the idea of my bad angel or just of my self in its worst state I think I shouldn't dignify it with an answer. Because the answer amounts to a discussion and at the end we have a winner and a loser. Therefore, previously knowing who the loser is should make me abstain from the competition, or at least agree that we'll never agree (I mean by we my good angel and you know who ;)), so why should I bother in the first place??!! I should just kick it off like a good old tasteless, hard annoying gum that's been in my mouth for too long.

    • Introvert Versus Extrovert
      • I've been occupied lately by that question. The irony is I'm an English language instructor to adults, however I've spent the previous part of my life as a shy, quiet student. The one who knows the right answer, but doesn't dare to raise her hands. And also the one who waits for people to make friends with her, never attempting to start a conversation. Now having that revealed, I always now create a special bond with the students that I teach, especially the ones who need encouragement or who are simply introverts in the common meaning of the word. And I find that a kind of success because extrovert students usually don't feel a problem participating in class which is the core of the learning process. I might also say that most educational institutes where I live consider a perfect teacher to be as much showy as being professional, which is something that sometimes intimidates shy students. Moreover, the perfect teacher should be like the director who pushes students to participate and practice without ever being seen on screen. Therefore, before answering this question I was questioning my ability to become a better teacher personality wise, but now I am content where I am, the calm, supportive teacher that doesn't care to prove anything about herself or act up to dominate the class. NO, instead I am the teacher who does her best at home planning to help students live the real life situations she's created to help them work their way through learning the language.
