I would describe myself as an intellectual. Not in a snooty way or anything, but just that I truly enjoy learning new things, diving deep into topics and not just learning them in surficial way, questioning things, etc. I rarely sit around and do nothing; I am always engaged in something that brings me joy, and to me joy = learning.

As someone who never plans/wants to get married or have kids, I know I’ll never get back the money I spent on my friends’ weddings, bachelor parties, kids birthdays etc. I know that and I was fine with it because they’re my friends.

Not cause I didn’t want to, but just ran out of time and honestly I don’t know what 8year olds are in to and I’ll just give the parents a gift cards later (cont)
