Tagged! Tagged! Tagged!
After sooo many of the wonderful people I met here tagged me, I decided to upload a second picture of me and not to make it private (at least for the first few days) so that I would really have chimed in :) Now I have to think of 25 things that I would consider interesting about me! ;)
1. I was not interested in fashion the slightest (and looked like that) until I was 18 or 19. It is hard to imagine for me today, as fashion plays such a huge and joyful role in my life today. What has not changed since then is that I wear things that I really, really like only.
2. I am pretty vain and I know it is one of my greatest weaknesses, going as far as thinking that I do not have to offer much to life except for my looks. Yes, sometimes getting compliments makes me feel depressed.
3. I will graduate from university next month with a master's degree in astrophysics if no mayor problems occur :)
4. I do not see my future in science because I feel pretty much everyone except the professors is being exploited. I love science, but I do not want to be a nomad begging for 6 month's contracts my entire life.
5. I used to wear goth fashion when going out when I was (much) younger.
6. I am the oldest of four siblings. I like thinking about how or how not that influences my life.
7. I have no clue where I want to be employed after next month yet.
8. Yes, I like ignoring problems and decisions hoping they will magically disappear/ resolve ;)
9. I would really love to move to the US one day, I have a feeling they have much better chances to offer to women. In Germany, a lot of men still think rather openly that women are really only useful for keeping the household and getting children.
10. I wear high heels almost exclusively. The secret behind it is that I have a really rather inelegant way of walking in flat shoes that looks kind of 'Donald Duck like'. It disappears when I wear heels ;)
11. I often have the feeling I have two personalities. The one is the little princess that loves cute and fluffy things and never want to grow up. The other is the Amazon that was born to protect her. But, they are both me in equal measures.
12. I feel that collecting is in my personality structure. I have always collected soemthing, and I simply cannot help collecting things in one way or another. have a lot of 'Unofficial things I in fact do collect' like postcards, stamps (that are just lying in a big box waiting to be separated from letters).
13. I sometimes want to quit the doll hobby more or less sincerely. The reason is mainly in the 'Exclusive craziness', in people who buy things to just resell them, and the extreme show off on some of the internet boards. But, I just love the little ones too much.
14. I often ask myself whether my doll collection reflects who I am or who I want to be.
15. I love eating sweet things so much it's close to an obsession. I would quit doing almost anything for a good dessert.
16. I was not sure what to study until the last day before my enrollment- physics or literature.
17. I trained material arts very intensively (more than 20 hours training per week) many years and I miss it like crazy. I often wish I could return to that time.
18. I have two homosexual uncles and a bisexual aunt. It was the most normal thing in the world to me that they don't love men or women, they love people. Wen I found out that not everyone thinks like that as a teen, I was shocked. Today, everyone who shoes the slightest sign of homophobia gets a massive kick in the butt from me.
19. I think that earning a lot of money is pretty much the only way in our society to ensure your personal freedom and to protect your individuality. Sad but true.
20. I am a total coffee addict. I especially love starbucks. Being a girly girl, my favorite drink is of course Caramel Macchiato ;)
21. I really hate dancing. I just feel so awkward when doing it ;)
22. I am one of these horrible people who always have their ipod on until it becomes absolutely necessary to take it off.
23. I think genes are 100% overrated in our modern society where everything can be explained with genes. I think the human mind and willpower are what really shapes their personalities and lives.
24. Oh man, I have to think of something funny to tell, this is supposed to be fun, not all with genes and money and so on, right? ;) So, here's a fun fact: I ahve a weakness for Asian guys. I think there are so many that are hot.
25. I have endless respect for my mum who took care of me as a baby when there was no dad around and always stood by my side. It was such a brave decision to have me when she was living in such an old fashioned, small village where we had to move my christening to another village because everyone would come to see 'that baby'. Unbelievable but true!
Creating a nation of little emperors...
The Planned Birth policy (Simplified Chinese: ????; pinyin: jihua shengyu) is the birth control policy of the government of the People's Republic of China (PRC). It is known in Western society as the One-child Policy due to the required payment of a "social compensation fee" for couples having more than one child in urban areas. China's generally perceived pandemic overpopulation problem, with the associated social and environmental problems, stimulated the government to take strong unique measures in population planning policy. The policy is controversial both within and outside China due to allegations of extreme methods such as forced abortions and other human rights abuses by the local authorities.
In reality, having one child has been promoted as ideal and the limit has been strongly enforced in urban areas, the actual implementation varies from location to location. In most rural areas, families are allowed to have two children, if the first child is female, or disabled. Second children are subject to birth spacing (usually 3 or 4 years). Additional children will result in fines. The families are required to pay economic penalties, and might be denied bonuses at their workplace. Children born in oversea countries won't be counted into the policy if they don't obtain Chinese citizenship. Chinese returned from overseas can have a second child.
The social fostering or maintenance fee [shehui fuyang fei] sometimes called in the West a family planning fine, is collected as a multiple of either the annual disposable income of city dwellers or the annual cash income of peasants as determined each year by the local statistics office. The fine for a child born above the birth quota that year is thus a multiple of, depending upon the locality, either urban resident disposable income or peasant cash income estimated that year by the local statistics. So a fine for a child born ten years ago is based about the income estimate for the year of the child's birth and not of the current year. They also have to pay for both the children to go to school and all the family's health care. Some children who are in one-child families pay less than the children in other families. The one child policy was designed from the outset to be a one generation policy. The one-child policy is now enforced at the provincial level, and enforcement varies; some provinces have relaxed the restrictions. Some provinces and cities such as Beijing permit two "only child" parents to have two children. Henan province, with a population of about 100 million, does not allow this exception.
Moreover, in accordance with PRC's affirmative action policies towards ethnic minorities, all non-Han ethnic groups are subjected to different rules and are usually allowed to have two children in urban areas, and three or four in rural areas; in addition, some couples simply pay a fine, or "social maintenance fee" to have more children.Thus the overall fertility rate of mainland China is, in fact, closer to two children per family than to one child per family (1.8). The steepest drop in fertility occurred in the 1970s before one child per family was implemented in 1979. This is due to the fact that population policies and campaigns have been ongoing in China since the 1950s. During the 1970s, a campaign of 'One is good, two is OK and three is too many' was heavily promoted.
Recently, the policy has changed because the long period of sub-replacement fertility caused population aging and negative population growth in some areas, and improvements in education and the economy have caused more couples to become reluctant to have children.
In April 2007 a study by the University of California Irvine, which claimed to be the first systematic study of the policy, found that it had proved "remarkably effective".
