10. Don't be vain. Don't show off too much or then you'll feel empty.
I understand all these threads are to put English in action and I was told there are people who see how things happen, other people who do things and finally other who make things happen. Very good. But once being dragged into it, one wants the whole version. It's unfair when the one who made the thing work, doesn't participate in it. Emotion: hmm

You're right Elena. I will get around to it. I just need to find time lately. I have been incredibly busy the last couple of weeks and if you have noticed, I haven't been able to post very much. I WILL do it though. By the way, is there a whole version? Are there any 10 things that we really need to know or are we better off being ignorant and experience and live things as they come? Oops, more questions!Emotion: wink
I agree with you completely. I have the feeling that some people participate more than others. I wonder in which group I'd be included. What do you think Elena?
Emotion: smile
It's better for AlienRob in order to thrive to be clued-up about life by one or several neutral informers. I think it's his unchallenged right. Although 'living things as they come' sounds much more exciting and that's the way life is lived actually, I think.

I was kidding above, it is not 'unfair' , it's perfectly ok, freedom is the first! Emotion: smile
Maj, you are the Queen of participating.
M in Japan, pat given, tks.
H, I stopped, tks.

Elena, stop kidding, I took it very seriously when you said "once being dragged into it, one wants the whole version. It's unfair when the one who made the thing work, doesn't participate in it". Why did you say that, then Elena?
Ohh maj, as I missed the comments and answrers of Ww, I asked for his attention and at the same time I wanted to use a new word learnt , in this case the verb 'to drag'.
I did the same in last post, I wanted to use 'to thrive, unchallenged, clued-up', new words I learnt yesterday reading Heroine of the Desert by Donya Al-Nahi. I couldn't add 'thoughless and 'undermined' but I'll find the room for them...Emotion: smile
Let me ask you again: "I was told there are people who see how things happen, other people who do things and finally other who make things happen". According to this definition, which category would you fall into? Which category would I fall into? Maybe if you give me an example, I'll be able to understand what you said in the above-post. Sorry, but I didn't get it. Who are you trying to find room for? What does cluep-up mean?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Clued-up = well informed about somebody or something. It's informal. No hyphenated when used after a verb.
Synonyms: knowledgeable, on the ball, in the know, competent. Antonym: clueless.

About 'room' .
I was talking about words, new words (thoughtless and undermined) and I said that I am sure I'll have the opportunity of using them.

In 'Topic of the moment - To Elena and other friends' you can understand well who makes things happen and so. I haven't thought a lot in which categories we fall Emotion: smile Let's fall in all of them!
