    Re my avatar:

    Stirlitz, one of the LSE exemplars, was a Russian Spy infiltrating the Nazi Regime - and not actually a Nazi himself.

    see 17 Moments of Springtime
    and
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stierlitz


    Stierlitz takes a key role in SS Reich Main Security Office in Berlin during World War II, infiltrating Ausland-SD (foreign intelligence) headed by Walter Schellenberg. Working deep undercover, Stierlitz tries to collect intelligence about the Germans' war plans and communicate it to Moscow. He receives instructions from Moscow on how to proceed, on one occasion traveling to Switzerland on a secret mission.[2] He diverts the German nuclear "Vengeance Weapon" research program into a fruitless dead-end, thwarts separate peace talks between Nazi Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States, engages in intellectual games with members of the Nazi high command and sacrifices his own happiness for the good of his motherland. Despite being racked with desire to return home to his wife he subordinates his feelings to his duty, thus embodying an idealised Soviet vision of patriotism.[3]

    Stierlitz is quite an opposite of the action-oriented James Bond; most of the time he gains his knowledge without any Bond-style stunts and gadgets, while in the film adaptation of the stories the action is presented through a narrative voice-over by Yefim Kopelyan.[4] He is presented in a deeply patriotic but non-ideological light, fighting to defend the Soviet motherland against external enemies rather than just defending the Communist government against its ideological opponents.[5]

    So, this doctor I am talking to is intriguing me with his mind. He is basically like an encyclopedia with a lot of Te and Si. I'm thinking he's LSE. I'm not very physically attracted to him and I have some wary feelings, but I can't help but enjoy communicating with him. He is the only person on the 2 dating apps I tried who I like to converse with/don't feel bored.

    I always wanted to marry a feminist man. Someone who asked me if I would feel opposed if I was asked to do the dishes. Just like that movie... can’t remember the title “short wedding” instead I married an LSE man’s man who fixes motorcycles and cars and boats

    I found out that my classes for next semester are probably going to be remote once again. I had been warned that this was possible when registering. In the alternate scenario where classes are in person, there will probably be a lot of changes as is either way. I didn't mind it so much during my last semester. During our first three or two-and-a-half months, we had in-person learning.

    I am wondering if not having any in-person experience will make for any difference in performance. I don't mind this format so much in classes that are subjects of strength. One of my classes, geology was more challenging though because we had remote labs which are much different, because you can't partner up.

    On a raft. And a boy was sitting on the raft.
    The picture worried me, I must say. There was an otter swimming in front of the raft, and I used to lie awake worrying about this otter, having to pull the raft, with all these other wretched animals on it who shouldn't even be on a raft, and the otter had such a thin tail to pull it with I thought. It worried me.
    Then one day-- and remember I had been looking at this picture every night for years-- I suddenly noticed the raft had a sail. Never seen it before. The otter was fine, just swimming along.

    I did two-ish years of my four-year degree via online/distance methods. The university was already set up to work like that (a lot of it was designed to help deployed service members get degrees), so while a lot of it was tedious it worked out ok. I found in online classes there was a ton more reading, I think because they couldn't do grades based on attendance.

    Let us know how it goes! The whole education systems and how they'll adapt is interesting to me.

    It does mix things up a bit, with a whole new format. It sounds like you were used to the format with the University being in that general format. I am glad that things worked overall with your experience.


    I found that keeping up with the work wasn't too bad. It depends on someone's general learning style, if it ends up working out in the end or now, In the more challenging of the classes, I got a bit mixed up at a few points last semester, but it's probably also part of it being a different experience. There was reading, and one of my professors had audio lectures along with her powerpoints.

    Thank you, I'll add any two cents once it starts up. x3

    How did this go?

    When I first met my spouse, I didn't find him overwhelmingly attractive like I thought I would with a romantic partner, but over time attraction has grown. That isn't to say that physicality isn't a vital aspect of a romantic relationship. But sometimes it doesn't have to be like the movies to work out.

    We stopped talking lol. To be honest I always had a bit of a raised suspicion with him, although I did enjoy talking to him very much. I always had a feeling of potential danger though.

    I feel like I'm at a place I can see really quickly if someone has potential for long-term, which unfortunately has been no one I have yet met on a dating site. That's okay though, I'm content where I'm at. I do get lonely, but I'm willing to wait for someone who is right : ) If that takes forever, so be it, lol. Thank you for asking : )

    P.S. Yeah the movie thing, ugh, how movies mess with us lol. I'm definitely not expecting anything movie-like at this point. I'm glad you have found a life partner! I've always been kind of late to the game on certain things, so we will see how it works out

    Good job tuning into your safety sensor! When I did online dating, there were a couple different men with whom I managed to create a written connection. One was even quite fun and we had some great conversation. I went on two IRL dates with him, and fairly quickly became uncomfortable with how he was not respecting my boundaries. When said aloud that I was feeling uncomfortable, he switched into demeaning and barely veiled aggression. It was disappointing, but I absolutely had no time for someone like that and cut him off completely.

    I, too, was of the mind that it's better to fly solo than to tie myself to the wrong partner. It took me until my mid-30s, but I'm content with how it has gone and who I found. Both of us have had opportunities to grow as individuals and since we both value growth and doing things well, we've come into our relationship with some maturity plus we are actively learning how to support each other.

    My LSI father did not visited hair dressers. He cuted his hairs himself with a big mirror, a scissors and a hairbrush. His hair style is middle long hairs with a side bang.
    My hairstyle since ~20 yo is simpler - short 6 mm hairs with a small bang (without a bang you'd look like in an army ). It's called "by a guide comb". It should not be complicated to do yourself by a clip. So I've bought a model and later plan to try.

    Today I ran into a lot of my old art and writing from when I was a kid/adolescent. Most of my time in my youth was spent writing stories, poems and songs, drawing and playing the keyboard.

    One thing I noticed, I mean my art style has always been rather whimsical/fantasy like, but I noticed that I always have women featured in my drawings, even as a kid. Those women are reflections of myself. They are usually in mystical and/or fantasy attire and there are a lot of nature themes and elements, moons etc. The same in much of the art I like.

    I found a story I wrote that features faeries, wizards and the like , but the main character is a young girl.

    I know @Froody Blue Gem and I have talked on some occasions about having fantasies come up frequently in our everyday lives and I wonder how many other delta NF's experience this.

    That is really cool and neat. It's a walk down memory lane, finding old art/stories. :3 I know that it often brings back old memories. And comparing it to possible current stuff, seeing what might of changed, style and content wise.

    Sometimes with my old stuff, I forgot that I even did some of the stuff until I happen to stumble across it, or rediscover it. I hate throwing old stuff away because you can always look back on it. But I am a big packrat, and a lot of drawings/art/papers pile up very quickly.

    That is also interesting how you incorporate a reflection of yourself. There is no right or wrong way to do it, and sometimes, it comes about on a subconscious level, to put a little of yourself in your art/character/world. It sounds like a beautiful, magical world that you created, and expressed yourself in. I have a lot of me-characters/alter egos in my artwork, and I also have a cartoon version of the regular version of myself.

    I do find that the general fantasy, my own little world is a big part of my life. A place to escape to, and things can always be added or created. And I'm constantly coming up with ideas for art. I can't quite force them to come, but when I'm not even trying to get ideas, inspiration sparks. It may revolve around what I'm currently interested in/obsessed in, like what characters/series that I'm into, but also with a fantasy element in there. Also with a lot of randomness, whimsy, and kookiness, and connecting it to my situation, or other interests. Listening to music is also inspiring when I create, and some of my creations are inspired by songs.

    I've been playing a lot of Minecraft with SO and the little backstories and storylines I come up with surrounding the animal characters has been inspiring a lot of art recently. x3

    I can relate to this a lot. I also have random sparks of inspiration, and same with the fantasies, they come when they come, although if I am asked to create something idea wise, I tend to do pretty good at it. The best ideas I agree though always come from those sudden random sparks of inspiration. My art style is indeed, whimsical.

    Dude the creating stories thing during Minecraft, was something I always did as a kid. I had a running story, a creation of my own, to things I would watch for example. I used to watch Fantasia and make dialogue for the characters lol. I did this sort of thing a lot. Some things changed for me during adolescence and sadly I dropped a lot of things, but I've been able to incorporate some creativity in other realms of life in different ways and I've started to pick up doing actual art whether that be through drawing, song or poetry. "Adulting" further helped to reduce motivation in some areas, but I'm at a place now due to massive lifestyle changes, changes in general and just a... going back to normalcy that I'm kind of, going back in time a bit and reconnecting with myself before things got messy. It's kind of scary, but also really cool. Art is at the top of the list : ) It kind of sucks when you have all these ideas and fantasies and don't do anything with them. Feels like a waste.

    I've already told you too, but your art is really cool btw, and I notice some similarities to my own (though I don't know how you do that strokey thing you do). I too have saved most my art and journaling/writing. I have notebooks filled with handwritten stuff o.o It's a little overwhelming, but when I go through it I"m like wow, I wrote that?...and like you said, certain memories come back to life.
