welcome to twominenglish.com. teaching you english through two-minute lessons. in this extra learning lesson, we will learn in detail about the words and phrases you use when you introduce yourself. ntroducing yourself to someone does not mean that you are just telling your name. the introduction can include other details such as: where you are from, where you work, the job you have, your hobbies and much more. yes, thatâ€™s right. how you introduce yourself depends on the situation you are in, and the amount of information expected from you. introducing yourself to someone youâ€™ve just met. when you are introducing yourself to someone youâ€™ve just met, you can say â€˜hiâ€™, â€˜helloâ€™, â€˜heyâ€™. â€˜helloâ€™ is more of a formal way. these are universal phrases and you can use them with anyone, be it a senior, a friend, a relative or someone younger. these phrases are suitable for both formal and informal situations.
saying â€˜helloâ€™ or â€˜hiâ€™ isnâ€™t enough. in order to introduce yourself, you have to tell the person your name you can start with something simple like, ‘hi my name is marley. or ‘hello’, i am marley’. in formal situations you may want to give both your first and last name. when you are talking with friends you can use a colloquial expression like â€˜they call me marley.â€™ after greeting people and telling them your name, you can also tell them how old you are or what you do for a living. if you are an engineer, you can say: â€˜iâ€™m 26 years old and iâ€™m an engineerâ€™. by telling them what you do, the person can know you better. yes, right! you can also tell someone where you live or where you are from. to tell people about your origin, you can say for example: â€˜i am from michigan or â€˜i have come from michiganâ€™. you can also say where you live: â€˜i live in chicago.â€™
in telling someone where you live or where you’ve been, this can be a great conversation starter as they may have something to relate to you. you can also ask people their name, or tell them some more about yourself. like what your hobbies are, what you like to do in your free time, where you hang out, and so on. itâ€™s all part of getting to know you better. to ask someoneâ€™s name, you can say. â€œmy name is john. whatâ€™s yours?â€ if you want to tell them about your hobbies you could say, â€œi really love playing chessâ€ or i really enjoy running.i run every day.â€ i hope this extra learning lesson was helpful and now you are better at introducing yourself to people. donâ€™t forget to watch the original lesson by clicking on the link given in the description. see you soon!

– if men don’t shave, it’s sort of just seen as a fashion choice. i feel like if women don’t shave, a lot of times it’s seen as,like, a political choice. (funky soul music) – [voiceover] we convincedfour of our co-workers to give up shaving for a month to see how theirperspectives would change. this is what happened.
– i’m so excited becausei hate shaving so much. – i’m excited, but i’m nervous. – there’s gonna be like, allthis weird social anxiety, but yet, i think partof me is kind of excited to have an excuse to not shave. i’ve done no-shave november before, so i’m no stranger tonot shaving for a month. – i don’t think i’ve ever not shaved for a whole month before.
– i feel like i’m goingto be both in anguish and liberated at the same time. – i’m the most nervous about my armpits. i have some hairy armpits, i’m nervous that like three weeks in, two weeks in, i’m just gonna be like, "uh,why did i sign up for this? "i feel disgusting." we’re two weeks in tothe non-shaving thing. – things are definitely getting hairy.
– i’ve finally crossed that line where it’s definitely doesn’tlook like i forgot to shave, it looks like i’mintentionally not shaving. – got a pretty, pretty thick beard here. it’s pretty, pretty dense,i haven’t really gotten too many crazy looks or anything. – i’ve been wearing short-sleeved shirts, because i don’t want anyoneto see my armpit hair. – i’m hiding my armpit hairunder longer-sleeved shirts.
– part of me really wants tostart wearing a lot of, like, long sleeves, i’m gonna try not to. it’s gonna be hard.- [sarah] the idea terrifies me.- [becky] i should be more confident, i shouldbe more comfortable, i shouldn’t give a (bleep),but it’s an adjustment. – it’s been pretty great,i don’t think there’s been any issues, it saves me a lotof time not having to shave. – i’m going to wear a tank top today.
and this is what’s going on. – side profile’s the best,’cause you can see it, there it is, there it is, look at that. oh my gosh, look at that! – i went to the farmer’s markettoday in a tank top, woohoo! – no one even noticed,no one said anything. – i don’t think peoplecare that i haven’t shaved. – people are okay with it. – so that was actually kinda cool.
– it is the last day of not shaving. – it’s been a month, andi have not shaved yet. – this is the end, this is it. we’ve come to the end of the road. – and as you can see, it’sgetting kind of ridiculous. – i finally get to take a razor to the hair under myarms, and i’m so excited. – you don’t have to,like, dot all your i’s and cross all your t’s every day
in terms of your beauty regimen to like, be seen asattractive, and feel sexy. – i honestly feel pretty great, you could go around beingas hairy as you wanted and people don’t seem to react at all. – no one noticed, i’mconvinced i’m a narcissist because no one ever said anything. – it was a little liberating. i’ve learned that i can pulloff a beard without any issue,
and people tend to see this as something that just is sort of part of my looks. – it’s definitely abigger thing for girls. – it seems very pointed,and it has like a message. – to be either a feminist,or to like actively say, "stick it to the man," or something. and if a guy has abeard, no one says that. – you know, ultimately, i think that that sort of does highlightthe gender inequality there.
– so i guess from here on out, i get to make the actual decision about whether or not i wanna shave, and right now i don’treally feel like i have to. – it’s totally up to you, you know? it’s an individual choice.- [sarah] body hair just isn’t as big of a deal as ialways thought it was. – i don’t think that every time you shave or put makeup on, you’re just like,
answering to the man, orto like the patriarchy. but i do think that itis empowering to try it and realize that evenif you do do something that’s kind of againstthe grain of beauty, you’ll still feel beautiful.
hey, what’s up, i am muchelle b and day one of the thirty day simplify your life challenge is here, i’m so pumped, i’m ready, i’m so excited for anyone who has joined me. so today’s challenge is super simple: it’s just mentally preparing yourself for the challenge ahead and figuring out what you actually want to get out of it because failing to plan is planning to fail. i’m a believer. so the first step of today’s challenge is to print the thirty day checklist. so there should have been a checklist in the email that you received. if you are not receiving the emails, you should be, so you should sign up in the description
but i will link a pdf of the document below. i don’t want to leave anyone out and make it like super-exclusive, i want everyone to be able to do it, even if you are just watching the videos. i get it, i don’t want to clog up your inbox. step number two is to get a dedicated notebook for the simplify your life challenge. so you can do this in like an online note taking app or you can get a physical notebook. it’s totally up to you. as you do the first two weeks of physical decluttering, you’re probably not going to use your notebook that much. but when you get to the mental decluttering side of things, you’re definitely going to be writing a lot. so step three is the actual preparing for the challenge. firstly, write down why you are doing this challenge, so why did you actually make the decision to take on the challenge in the first place?
was it because you were super stressed out by your space, everything was cluttered, things were driving you crazy? was it because you don’t have a clue about what you own? think of the reasons why you’re deciding to this decluttering challenge. next up: write down what your end goal is. so how do you actually want to feel at the end of this challenge, what is the end goal? for example, maybe every afternoon after work you want to walk into your space and feel super freed surrounded by only the stuff that you love, and be totally conscious of everything that you own. and the next thing to write down is: what are your blocks, so what are the things that could stop you from completing this challenge and what do you need to do to overcome them? so for example: you work fulltime and you know it’s hard to motivate yourself in the afternoons so to overcome that you’re going to put on the minimalist’s podcast in your car on the way home, that way you’re feeling super motivated
and you’re going to like leave your checklist right in front of you when you walk in the door. if you’re planning on self pacing, because you know that physical decluttering is going to take you a really long time, plan out now what days you’re going to be doing the challenges and how you’re sort of going to organise it, just so that you have a plan and you have something to stick with and you don’t just let the challenge go. so this page is going to be awesome because whenever you’re struggling in the challenge or whenever you’re just like ‘ugh, i don’t know if i can do this’, you can look back at this page and be like ‘yes, this is my motivation, this is my why’. the next step is to do your laundry because tomorrow we are decluttering your wardrobe. and the last step is to celebrate how fabulous you are for even taking part in this challenge. yeah, i look like i’m rapping or something but really badly.
so that is it for day one of the simplify your life challenge. we are starting with a very easy one, just prepping and planning for the days to come and giving yourself something to look back on for when/if you struggle in the challenge. if you are receiving the emails, i am going to have the entire contents of this video written down in a step by step guide as a little mini checklist for you and tomorrow we are going to get started on the fun stuff which is the physical decluttering. i will see you tomorrow. xoxo
so somewhere in all of this studying the biologybehavior, somewhere in there when youâ€™re realizing activity levels in this part ofthe brain one second before this act: what you had for breakfast all the way back tolike what culture your ancestors evolved toâ€”all of these are influencing your behavior. most of these variables weâ€™re not even awareof. theyâ€™re subliminal. we never would have expected it. inevitably somewhere in there youâ€™ve gotto sit down and start having the free will discussion.
so is there any free will in there? and the polite thing that iâ€™ve sort of saidfor decades is that â€œwell, if there is free will, itâ€™s in all the boring places, andthose places are getting more and more cramped.â€ if you want to insist that today you decidedto floss your teeth starting on your upper teeth rather than your lower teeth, ratherthan the other way around, that that is an act of free willâ€”whatever, iâ€™ll grantthat one to you. thatâ€™s where the free will is. in reality i donâ€™t think thereâ€™s any freewill at all. if you look at the things that come into accountas to whether or not someone is going to do
the right thing in the next two seconds amida temptation to do otherwise, the variables in there reflect everything from whether theyâ€™rehaving gas pains that day because of something unpleasant they ate that morningâ€”that makesus more selfish, more impulsive, et ceteraâ€”to what epigenetic effects occurred to them whenthey were a first trimester fetus. when you look at the number of things we recognizenow that are biologicalâ€”organicâ€”where 500 years ago or five years ago we would havehad a harsh moral judgment about it. instead we now know oh, thatâ€™s a biologicalphenomenon. when we look at that, either we can say thelast 500 years of realizing all of this biology is going to stop right here and thereâ€™snever going to be a new piece of knowledge
in that areaâ€”yeah, thereâ€™s areas of behaviorwe still canâ€™t explain biologically. but if all you can do is see the logical directionweâ€™re going with that is what weâ€™re going to get to the point is recognizing yeah, weâ€™rebiological organisms. this notion of free will, for want of a lessprovocative word, is nothing but a myth. whatâ€™s going to be really challenging thoughis to figure out how you structure a society that actually runs humanely built around thenotion that we are merely biological organisms. and that one i havenâ€™t a clue. if someone tells me, you know, â€œoh, niceshirt youâ€™re wearing today,â€ and i say â€œoh gee, thanks!â€
iâ€™ve just shown that on some fundamentallevel i have trouble accepting thereâ€™s no such thing as free will. no: actually i picked this shirt today becausethe culture i come from has these values and my visual, you know, color receptors toldme that this shirt matches with this. you know you still have a reflex to attributesome sort of free will and sort of tiny little domains. if thatâ€™s going to prove horrible and toodifficult to overcome, thatâ€™s fine. where we need to do the heavy lifting is whenweâ€™re making judgments about volition in areas where we harshly judge people.
there we really have to do the hard work ofthinking through that thereâ€™s not a lot of free will going on there.

and he decided to learn from his rich dad and as his rich dad he also went to become more rich and successful later rich dad taught robert about many topics and among them one of the most important topic was about the cash flow of rich and poor people according to him the cashflow of rich people is something like this rich person invest most of their money on assets like real estates and banks which in return
generates money for them and they again invest generated money in assets which generates more money and makes them richer whereas the cash flow of poor person is something like this they regularly spend almost 80% of their money on liabilities like a house or a car that takes money away from them and makes them poorer that’s why instead of spending money on liabilities we should follow the cash flow of rich people and

the peach scene… when i met tilda swinton about four years ago, it was at a dinner event. and i was introduced to her, andshe turned to me and she said, "oh! the peach scene!" now, there had been no script, there had been no screenplay yet… but she had obviously read the book and the first thing that impressed her was the peach scene. so the peach scene is, i think, very essential… partly because it’s so shocking, but also, at the same time, because it is the most intimate moment between the two men.
in the book, oliver eats the peach and he says "because i want every part of you… if you’re going to die, i want part of you to stay with me in my system, and that’s the way i’m going to do it." so, it is a very powerful moment. "please don’t do that.""you want to see something sick?" in the film, he just puts his finger andalmost licks it and that is good enough for cinema â€” we don’t need to see more. "why are you doing this to me?" "what are you doing? you’re fucking hurting me!""then don’t fight…"
what is absolutely superlative â€” it’s one of the most moving moments in the film, is that as the as the two men/boys are struggling with each other… one wants to eat the peach, the other one wants to sort of grab it away from him, to prevent him from doing so… at some point elio will say, "you’re hurting me!" and he says "let go then!" says oliver, at which point elio just breaks down and cries. and he says "i don’t want you to go…" "i don’t want you to go…" it’s a magnificent moment, but the filmdoes this all the time.
it takes a very physical, almost lustymoment, and finds its emotional equivalent right away, so that it never allows you to dwell on the physical without ever giving you also the emotional counterpoint to it.
