Hi @Halla ,

I did not get a notification to your answers here. I only managed to look around this platform now after some travels and busy schedule and noticed your contributions. My apologies...

Very interesting answers indeed! Thank you for enriching us further on these topics. Isn't it amazing how diverse we all are?! 🙂 I believe it is possible to be involved in different jobs during different seasons of our lives. You do not necessarily have to choose just one job for the rest of your life.

Having said that from knowing you for a while, your interest in arts and from a first glance here, it sounds like you are a musician and an academic to me. How about being a music or an art teacher (covering music too) that could give you freedom to carry on learning through more courses as well during the long summer holiday breaks?

For those of you who are interested in arts: I think you would like this lecture too, which I just mentioned in @Veektoh 's thread as a few people highlighted it to me independently now (one of which was @Danijela -they somehow left it for me to share it here although I had encouraged them to share the link- ) : https://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity?language=en . Do schools kill creativity? I hope they don't... What do you all think?

@Halla ,

Re: your answer for Q3: I know that it can be frustrating... If I face such people, I try to point them to the correct resources where possible and applicable. E.g. Holocaust museum in Germany may be one for the deniers. Coincidentally, thanks to @Lillian who had recommended it in the Mentor Portal: I've recently completed reading the book called "The Hiding Place" by Corrie Ten Boom, who was a concentration camp survivor and lost her family members there and she was not even Jewish. It's an incredible true story. Reading such amazing story written by the survivor herself (i.e. hearing it firsthand) would impact most people, I presume. I also discovered she's got a prequel and a sequel to the Hiding Place. I'm currently reading the prequel, which I highly recommend everyone too.

If others have more ideas as to how to handle such situations, please feel free to comment too. Thanks.
