    Is it too personal to ask what everyone does? Don't feel like you need to answer! I'm just curious!
    Hi Sophi!

    My fall's going well. Leaves don't change color here, but it's finally starting to cool down. Next week might even finally be in the 70s (F). October is my favorite month. I went to a pumpkin patch with my sister on Saturday and bought a pumpkin, and used it to roast pumpkin seeds and make pumpkin butter. It was my first time using a pumpkin to cook (and really I don't cook much at all so it was an experience!) What do you teach overseas?

    I'm a lab tech at a food testing lab. I don't test the food or set the samples, though. I make the "bacteria food" that is used to promote the growth of all kinds of pathogens that the main and path lab techs use when setting client samples. By using my "bacteria food" with client samples and incubating it at a nice warm temperature for a long time, we can make sure nothing in the client sample is contaminated (so basically, even though my bacteria food promotes bacteria growth, nothing should grow! If it does, it's not safe for human consumption!) So even though I suck at cooking real food, in a way I spend all day cooking... just not for humans! Lol

    @Suntide wow, that is so interesting! So would it be something like, you take a sample of meat, then put it in a warm environment. If bugs start appearing, then it's clear the meat is contaminated, and can't be sold. Something like that?

    Thta's so fun that you got to make pumpkin butter. I've had apple butter before, but not pumpkin. When I was a kid, I loved going to the pumpkin/apple farm with my family. It was so much fun! I especially liked making caramel apples. We would take the apples from the farm, then melt caramel from the store and dip them and put them on wax paper. I always tried to get extra caramel on mine lol.

    I teach English overseas. ^^ So my hours are basically opposite of the Western Hemisphere. I'll probably go home for winter break though, and then I might be moving back to the USA next year. It's been very lonely for me this past year. But it has been a really good opportunity to explore my feelings/thoughts and grow from the experience. I actually just finished writing out my thoughts about this interesting video I found on Stillness.

    It's by Matt D'Avalla, called "The Key to Happiness in a Distracted World." Have you heard of him before?

    He's basically one of those productivity youtubers. I am seriously curious if they all have the same personality type. I've always struggled with making and sticking with routines, etc. But I enjoyed this video in particular, because it explored how to be in the "present" moment, and find stillness/peace (which is something I really need right now.)

    Hi Sophi

    This thread was just made sticky and renamed this week:-)
    It was started by SummerRoads and just sort of caught on between us all.

    Fall is busy just now. Lots going on at work and weekends. Leaves are a glorious red colour now on our front tree.

    Taking my partners car in for it's oil change tomorrow then going to our friends' baby's Naming Day ceremony in the afternoon. Never been to one of them before so I'm intrigued what it'll be like plus its been ages since we saw them so will be good to catch up.

    Work wise, I'm an electrical design engineer. Currently working in the water industry - used to be nuclear, but nuclear power is dying out here in Scotland so it was time for a change. All the work I'm doing at the moment is for upgrades/refurbishments to existing water treatment works or for all new builds. My main project is just now is a new works in the Scottish Highlands - new switchboards, electrical distribution systems, instrumentation and control system. It's running behind schedule just now, but we're catching up.

    How's your weekend looking?

    @orion83uk wow! Your job sounds so cool! So do you think the switch from nuclear to electric a good one, then?

    My weekend has been going pretty well. I went to the big city to visit a friend, and we went to a flower festival and ate tacos at my favorite restaurant! The pork tacos are soooo good.

    Then I met another friend, and she talked me into going to a club. This might sound crazy, but I've never been to one lol. I'm not a fan of loud noises. It was a pretty small club, and people were so packed you couldn't really dance! I'm not sure if I would go again, but it was interesting! (I am almost always willing to try something once).

    I messaged another friend, and basically told him I knew how busy/stressed he's been, and that I hoped he would have a good day,and all his efforts would pay off soon. I'm a little worried about him. He's a very stoic type of person, and has lots of responsibilities, but he's having a hard time right now. 😕 he even messaged me back and said my message really helped him. So I'm hoping his work load will slow down soon...

    Now I'm about to video chat with my parents, and then I'll head out for church before going home.

    I think this weekend has been pretty good! 😄 I am not ready for school though lol.

    How was your weekend?

    Hi @Sophi

    Sounds like a nice weekend :-)
    You know, I've never had a 'proper' Taco before!

    I'm totally with you on the night club thing. I didn't mind going occasionally when I was younger, but these days I can't think of a worse way to spend a Saturday night. I've joked with freinds a few times that if they ever open a bar that stays open to 3am and plays background music only rather than music at deafening night club volume levels, I'd happily stay out.

    Thanks.
    For our country, I think it makes sense. There is now a big focus on off-shore wind, and we have a low population relative to land-mass, and surrounded by windy seas.

    As a whole, I think nuclear is still important, especially if we want rid of coal fire.

    Energy efficiency though has to play a big part too. And, controversial topic I know, but the population of the plant, I think, is getting to be another issue.

    Could probably start a new thread on this very subject and it would go on and on for pages.

    Oh, I would love that! You should post something about it in the general discussions tab.

    An informed discussion on this subject would be interesting. I could do with updating myself on some of the things I've fallen behind on. I'm trying to arrange a seminar at the moment for next year on these new Floating Wind Turbines and/or Hydrogen Storage.

    Hope you don't mind me asking, where all have you been travelling teaching English?

    @orion83uk No worries, I don't mind answering! I haven't actually been traveling too much. I'm not a fan of traveling alone, and I can never seem to get a friend to tag along with me lol. So far I've been to the Philippines and I went to Okinawa, Japan to see my Aunt. I've also been to Korea.

    I want to go to the mainland part of Japan, so I'm currently figuring that out. Preferably I would go in the summer, rather than winter. I've heard Kyoto is really nice! I would probably stop in Tokyo a few days, then go to Kyoto. I'm not a huge city person.

    I've also always wanted to go to Mongolia, and stay in a yurt, and travel around on horse back. I don't feel comfortable going there alone though, and would prefer going with a man (as opposed to a girl friend). Maybe one day I can do it...

    Just realised I didn't respond to this - apologies.

    That's handy having a relative in Japan :-) I would love to visit Japan (Tokyo) some day. It's on our "to do" list, along with the west coast of the USA. I love the idea of starting in Seattle, hiring a Ford Mustang, and then just driving/exploring until we reach Las Vegas.

    I have an Uncle in Cape Cod MA. Been a long time since I last visited them there and really should get back there sometime soon.

    Generally speaking, I don't like to travel alone either, especially not if it were somewhere far. I do however sometimes enjoy having small trips away, especially if to see/do something specifically I know interests me but which I know won't interest my partner.

    I've also always wanted to go to Mongolia, and stay in a yurt
    There's a country you don't tend to hear many people talking about! Definitely somewhere different. I like the idea of a Yurt too - "comfortable camping".

    @orion83uk it seems all the ESFJs have found a different forum.

    Well, that's okay!

    I've thought about doing a road trip too, and going to the Grand Canyon and California. I always wanted to go to the red wood forest. It would be great if I could go camping there! But it probably isn't allowed knowing California lol. And I know it doesn't exist, but if there was a hotel carved into the remains of a giant redwood tree, that would be sooooooooooo cool.

    Have you learned any other languages BTW? You said you live in Scotland, is that right? Can you speak Gaelic? I technically have roots from Scotland, and my dad found the village we were originally from (I can't remember the name). He wants to buy a kilt and go to there for some village festival. I told him that would be so weird lol.

    I'm currently studying Korean. It's a really fun language, but quite difficult for an English Speaker.
