1) will you still pursue you studies even after you reach retirement age? 2) will you still buy the same item(which is cheaper) from another store even if you already bought one (which is slightly more expensive) from a different store? 3) will you still wash your hands before meal even if they're clean all day?

hi single! 1. i don't think i would still want to study if i'm already 60 years old. i think i would prefer to take a vacation and enjoy the remaining days of my life. i would still pursue my studies if i was still working. but retirement means taking a rest so i'd follow that meaning. 2. i wouldn't buy an item that i have already bought even if its cheaper from what i have already bought. that would be so impractical. even if i want to get the cheaper one, if i already have it, i would still spend more if i add the cheaper price to the price of i have bought already. 3. its not my habit to wash my hands before meals. ^__^;; i only wash them before meals if they are dirty. but if its clean, i won't wash it. so i guess, the answer is no.

1. I graduated college early this year but I know that learning in life will continue. Academically, I would also want to have one. A masteral degree is an advantageous but maybe for now, I'll settle with in-house learning by reading my own books. :) 2. If the item is good and very useful, I would love to buy another and it would nice if it's cheaper and still has the quality of course. 3. If I'm from somewhere, I would still wash it. If I'm just staying in my room the whole, I don't mind eating with my hands unwashed. hehehe.. Anyway I use spoon and fork whenever I eat. :)

1) yes, but not academic studies. more on the things i want to get involved in or talents i wanna develop (even at an old age). 2) if it is an item that i always use and is consumable, like soap for example, i would buy again the cheaper item. but if it's something i only need once and don't need it again soon, i won't. 3) it is something i don't really consciously do. as long as i know that my hands are clean, i don't really wash them that often. unless there's some icky thing on it and i really can't eat with it or can't hold a spoon and a fork with it.

I may still be persuing studies after reaching retirement age, but not the conventional academic studies. It would be things I am very interested and had not have the opportunity to study about in my earlier years. It would then be a good chance. This would keep my mind active and keep healthy too.

I dont think so,not unless someone else pays for them. I think that I have spent enough time in school.

I've finished three years of college and I hope to go back and do two more, then I'm pretty sure I'll be finished my studies for a long time. It would depend on the item, if it was something I definitely didn't need two of, I wouldn't buy a second one...but maybe if it was something small, like candy, I would consider it. There is no such thing as hands being clean all day. You're always touching something, and therefore there is bacteria on your hands and you should wash 'em.
