  • What does compromising your dream mean?

    Best answer: It means that you have to give up part of the dream because it cannot be done along with all the other parts of the dream. You give up part, to get part. that is the idea of compromise: give a little, get a little. It isn't quite an abandonment as a recognition of reality. Almost no one ever fulfills their... show more
    Best answer: It means that you have to give up part of the dream because it cannot be done along with all the other parts of the dream. You give up part, to get part. that is the idea of compromise: give a little, get a little. It isn't quite an abandonment as a recognition of reality. Almost no one ever fulfills their dreams completely. The dreams were never really possible as they were dreamt.

    Often, when it comes to dreams and ideas of our personal futures, we can make compromises (give up part of the dream) in exchange for something else that turns out to have been a bad deal. Thus, you might hear people say to not compromise on your dreams because the exchange is a fake out, a false trade off that makes you end up losing your dream without anything of value to show for it, even if it seemed like a good trade at the time.

    That was the sort of "compromise" women once had to make when they married and stopped pursuing their careers. When hubby left after wifey quit college to help put him through med school or whatever, that wasn't a very good trade for wifey, when all is said and done.

  • What am I considered?

    Best answer: In the realm of handedness, you are "cross-dominant" also known as mixed-handedness. The estimate is that only about 1% of the world population is cross-dominant.

    Best answer: In the realm of handedness, you are "cross-dominant" also known as mixed-handedness. The estimate is that only about 1% of the world population is cross-dominant. Keep in mind that virtually no one does literally everything with their dominant hand. My boss is exclusively right-handed, except that he golfs left handed. He doesn't know why. My father was left-handed but always shaved with his right hand. He didn't know why but his theory was that it was his left hand in the mirror! I'm also left handed but I shoot firearms right handed because I learned in the military where the preference is right-hand shooting (rounds eject to the right). So your cross-dominant handedness .... it makes a great conversation piece!

    I'm reading "One,. Two, Buckle My Shoe" by Agatha Christie.published in 1940.where a pageboy of an apparent suicide victim, in detailing the visitor to his employer's office says the following, "Then I nipped down to the kitchen to get my elevenses." So to nip is a very British way of saying to make a quick trip. But what does "elevenses" mean? I checked the American Heritage and Webster's and they have not under eleven for elevenses. My best guess is this is what an American would mean by "take my coffee break.". If the work say begins at 9, and lunch would take place at 1, then 11 would be the appropriate time for the morning break. It also could mean to get one's wages, although one would hardly go to the kitchen to get one's wages. I know this is most definitely a British usage, and probably very dated at that. But until I know for sure this will vex me.
