I learned that presenting your views mildly can sometime win you unexpected friends. And that there are people you are afraid of still you can poke them every now and then! Besides all these personal knowledge gain, I learned not to be boastful. Actually I learned it hard way. And two of my friends are culprit. They made me

That is great learning not to boast is a great accomplishment. I know I have never had a problem with this and hopefully my kids wont but it happens. I don't know what you mean by poking could you explain that? Do you mean like on Facebook where you can poke others or do you mean in real life poking someone? Yes I have made some unexpected friends here also!

Mine either. I hate that I am not, I am starting on that also. I am learning how to be more patient and it seems to help me be patient with the kids also, so I am like killing 2 birds with one stone. I have never been patient and Mylot is the one to help me with this. I also get to work on my spelling this way also.

HaHa yep at least we can learn too. If you don't take what you learn from mylot then it seems like a bit of a waste. I believe that mylot is a great learning tool, and I am sure I will use what I have learned from mylot in the future. So this is like an amazing experience along with a payday at the same time.

christinawise87 I really do not believe that a tiny ant could possibly eat through plastic, while I enjoy learning things on Mylot I also use my common sense and the tiny mouths of ants would not make a dent in dense thick plastic so that fact does not compute.however I love mylotting and enjoy all the various exchanges here. I am glad you are enjoying mylot too and welcome to our mylot.happy mylotting.

I didn't think so but was dumb founded by that discussion. I don't know if maybe something else happen to cause the ant to get in or what. I don't understand why milk was left out in the first place it does bad easily at room temperature. I really do enjoy Mylotting and believe its great fun. I will be here for a long time I am sure. Also thank you for the welcome and I will continue to discuss her on Mylot.

Once when i was like 9 years old I remember looking in my drawer ...my bra and underwear drawer and finding a bunch of ants and they ate totally through my underwears and bras... so eating through cloth is totally something that I know they can do ... as for plastic I have yet to see that one... but cloth shocked the crap out of me...

Wow that would suck did you go without undies or did you have more? That would suck not having any except the ones you just took off unless you wasn't wearing any then you had none at all because they ate them all. Wow that could be a disaster I would be freaked! Wow what did you do? Sorry I think I am a bit hyper on candy and this shocked me and made em laugh too not that was funny but the thought u know?

I agree and I believe that is what makes mylot so much fun for me! I can't believe I didnt find this place years ago. I would be so happy to have been here for years! I have learned so much from a lot of people here and really hope that people learn from me.

The most interesting thing I have learned is not actually from a discussion but the fact that making extra money doesn’t need to feel like a chore but can be good fun, as for the reason why I like being on myLot most days. In fact when you have fun making money you usually end up making more! Some of the strangest things I have learned though is that the Greeks are full of strange and entertaining customs such as flirting with anything in a dress and the old tradition of putting heads on the walls outside your home. Who says earning money has to be boring when you can find out the weird and wonderful at the same time.

I agree I have to found out that earning money can be and interesting. I never thought I could get money for talking with people online. It almost seems unreal. I can see why so many people think mylot could be a scam. I love mylot and love talking to everyone here.

Hi what i have learned from my lot is that its very difficult to earn money and that you should work very hard to earn some money.

Not really, if you take your mind off of the money aspect. I have fun talking and learning on here and I think for the time I am on here what I earn is well worth what I have done. A little hint to you if you make your responses longer like a paragraph or more you will earn a lot more. I just learned this yesterday and my earnings almost doubled because of me making them longer than one line. I love it and don't mind spending time here its better than wasting my time somewhere else not making money.

Actually yes you do but it is actually not hard. You earn more if your responses are like a few sentences vs. being only one. I have just learned this yesterday and my earning practically doubled. I couldn't believe it. I wish I would have learned that the first few days but hey you learn from what you read! I am very excited to be on here to talk I could careless about the money it is just a sweet surprise.

Hi Cristina, what I have learned here, well I learned to have patience, to take people as they are, better or worse, to accept that life here is that if you are wise and you are patient, everything will be fine, but unfortunately I learned again, if proof were needed that people can not be changed here that is not different than in real life;A gossip remains a gossip, no matter where in reality or there, a man of character remains a man of character, a gossip remains a gossiper, a decent man is decent there, in day by day life, here too. Of course i have gained and a lot of information in all areas I am interested, why not i hope that I developed my skills in writing in English, and I learned that people can sell you and buy as is and in reality. But basically I learned to have patience, can be a little more wise, and accept, as a smaller scale, Mylot is a small community.

I agree a person will be who they are gonna be if they are being true on here. I know that most people aren't that bad but there is always a few bad ones in the bunch and there is no way of stopping them. I agree with the patience part. I never am very good at being patient, but I am learning to become more patient. It is a work in progress you know?

I have learned so much from Mylot. I agree it is a good place to learn new things and make money. I enjoy doing both and making new friends. It is a good place to come and so much better than talking in a chat room or on Facebook because the discussions are real and people talk about things that are of interest to you. If you don't like that subject you can pick another. I love it, because I am in control and pick what I want to talk about.

Yes they do pay there is many people here that can vouch for that. I have benefited a lot from Mylot. They have taught me so much about all kinds of things. I would have never known had I not been a part of a group here. I like Mylot a lot but if you are only here for the money you will get bored and leave, its more about the talk and discussion vs. making money.

For me I've learned to be more upfront and active and not afraid of what I have to say. My opinion is just that. And, while I can be a lot more shy in real life, that I can be more open online. It used to take me forever to do as much as I did, and knowing what insite I could offer actually helps another person, that's real rewarding. And, even though I may not be able to help everyone... I know I tried.

I agree I have learned to open up and be myself. I am never that way in real life but on here I feel relaxed and more open to be myself. I love that about Mylot, you aren't judged or made to feel bad about my opinion. I have only been here like 5 days but feel like I have made so many friends and my discussion have helped people out.

in my two years of stay in mylot, i never thought i could learn a lot of things. there are ideas that i can't find in the neighbor but there are neighbors that you can share ideas. there are things you already know how to earn cash but in mylot, i learned how not only to earn but to use hard earned money, wisely. but the most of all things that i learned from mylot, is making friends with foreign people. i never thought in my whole life that i could have a friend from the other side of the world, people who speaks and thinks differently from what or how i grew up. and most especially, i learned from mylot, the friends could not be friends only, FRIENDS ARE ANGELS, TOO.

I agree I never thought I would meet people who live in other countries and do things differently then I do. I didn't even know there was people on here from other countries till one day a discussion about Bali and I found out the person live somewhere else. I was so excited to learn about the country I asked a ton of questions and they was happy to share about their country.

Yeah I like that part of it too. I am not a great speller and you can tell when I use Internet Explorer vs. Firefox because of all the selling errors. Firefox fixes them and IE doesn't. I get to practice spelling better and writing more. I also like learning about other countries, before I joined Mylot I had never spoke with anyone that hadn't lived in the US. I am so excited learning about other countries. How they do things and what things are different. It gives me a different view and shows me a little more about that country!

Guess I will get a little serious on you here, and tell you something valuable I have learned on MyLot. First, I have learned that it feels good to help other people, and be helped. I learned I like having people look up to me. Second, no matter what I am going through, someone else is in the same boat with me. Third, I have met friends online and then later have met them in person. Fourth: I think I have increased my curiosity about the world, and many people have a more challenging life than I do. I have learned a lot about the world. I could go on and on, but then it might seem I was repeating myself. I have gotten good advice myself, and I am learning that I am able to agree to disagree.

I have to really agree with you on this I have to learned that I am not the only one in most cases. Also have learned there is nice people out there who are really nice people and not fake online. I hate fake people who are one way then another. I just dont see why people cant be true and real. I do enjoy talking with you and look up to you because you are more knowledged than I am on a lot of things. But then there is things like yesterday where I feel good because I could help you. It made me feel important that I was someone you came to. Ya know? Anyhow thanks for your input and thanks for being serious in this discussion!

yes I learned many things in here how to express knowledge really varied. I previously did not know to increase my knowledge about the topic discussed. Every day there is new and you will love it.

I am surprised too, I never knew I would learn so much from other people. I am learning more than a little a day. You know the saying " you learn something new everyday" not with Mylot you learn something in every discussion I believe. I can't wait to get on every morning to discuss things with my new found friends. This helps me learn things and also give me a sense of accomplishment knowing I learned things that day and helped others learn things.

I agree I have learned to open up and express myself because it is easy to do here. I don't have people judging me or making me feel bad. In the real world it wouldn't be this way at all people are quick to judge and make you feel like scum if they don't agree with what is being done or said. I am so glad Mylot is not this way.

You are so right, that any information you receive here is very valuable and far more important than the money we make here, which isn't much anyway. I too, have learned to much here, and I think everything I have learned is valuable, as I just can't name jsut one thing. I am glad I am a part of mylot, butI just wish I had joined it sooner than I did, but now that I am here, I don't intend on going anywhere and I hope to be here for years to come. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

I so agree, I wish I had joined Mylot sooner too. I enjoy being here and think the experience is worth so much more. I am excited to have been here the 5 or so days I have. I am enjoying it so much and hope to continue and be in all these wonderful discussions with all my new found friends. I think it is great to have people to talk to when you are not around others much, this is how I am. It makes it so much better having people to talk to vs. not talking to others.
