Sharing My World On…What Day Is It Anyway

We’re still on the Share Your World x Harry Potter Series and this week, the questions relate to or are inspired by The Order of the Phoenix.

For the mystical questions:

What happened to cause you to discover ‘bullies” were real? For some reason, my sibling and I didn’t experience bullying growing up. I was lucky (or not?) to have not encountered bullies in real life until I went to university. I was never one to join groups but managed to make good friends with the serious, studious ones who can’t be bothered with cliques or petty stuff. In university though, I was talked into running for student office/government and won as part of the minority. Only two of us from my then-political party won. The political party where most of the winning candidates came from were a bunch of bullies, and that made for a stressful year even just attending the regular meetings. I realized I was well-prepared for the actual job but not the (dirty) politics that sometimes came with it.

Eavesdropping- When given the chance, how often do you eavesdrop? I really try not to eavesdrop when I can help it.

Escalators, at one time, were the ‘next big thing’. When was the last time you rode an escalator?  Not in a while, maybe 2-3 weeks ago when I went to the supermarket within a mall.

Have you ever ‘let’ someone win in a sports competition or a board game? How did it turn out? Not really, more of the other way around. My brother was really good at playing chess and when I was learning the game eons ago, he would occasionally toss me a ‘win’.

For the muggle, mundane questions:

Do our fears start with our DNA? (Credit to Rory) When it comes to basic fears in terms of survival, I’d concur with others that it starts with our DNA. For most other fears I think it’s more in the conditioning than anything else. I answered this question before in another post.

If you could have your hair any colour for 24 hours, what colour would you choose? Dark blue, deep purple or pink.

When do you think a person gets old? (Credit to Rory) I also answered this question in this post. My answer is the same – when we think we know it all or there’s nothing more to learn or look forward to.

    1. Does he still let you win now? Or maybe you can now take on a chess champion fair and square 😉. My brother used to read books about chess grandmasters and their play while playing with me so I guess I was his guinea pig then.

  1. Thank you sincerely for Sharing Your World. Very thoughtful answers, and yeah, I’m ‘guilty’ of shang-hai-ing Rory’s questions from recently. But I fell into a rather severe time crunch and since he’d done the ‘heavy thinking’ already…. I’m glad you shared those answers again here! Have a happy week!

    1. Always a pleasure participating in SYW. I don’t mind seeing the questions again, those were good ones that others joining SYW might not have had the time to answer or see yet. A happy week to you, too!
