Learning to Learn

“The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.” – Mark Twain

When you think about it, learning to learn can be quite hard. You could argue that I don’t know much since I am part of Generation Z. However, let me ask you this: How do we learn? I find the concept to be interesting, the way your brain picks up the information and stores it in such an intelligent way that you can remember it. But it only lasts for a certain amount of time.

This is a diagram which shows a theory called “the theory of forgetting”. It’s a popular theory in psychology which states that after a certain amount of time, the newly retained information will be forgotten. So, in order for the information to be implanted into our long term memory, we must retrace and go over things. Over and over again until you feel like a master in it! I know that it might sound crazy but isn’t it exciting to know that you’ve managed to remember something, no matter how small? I think it’s rather cool and eccentric but everyone has their own personal opinion.

You could argue that the education system does not allow us to learn the way that we want to, and yes this is absolutely correct- we are instructed to blindly follow rules and regulations to hopefully be lead to earning top grades. Grades do not define you, you are perfectly imperfect as a human. You are made of flesh and blood and sweat and tears. And it’s a beautiful thing, it really is. So always remember that you are always stronger than you seem, more intelligent than you think and that you help people that would otherwise crumbling. This is the beauty of learning. Learning to mature and develop into a lovely and weird person who loves to learn new things. We are not robots, nor machines we are humans that learn from our mistakes and grow as people.

 

Have a lovely day,

Introducing Myself

Hello,

My name is Sumi and I am someone who enjoys watching anime and cartoons. I’m a big fan of Studio Ghibli and Ponac flims. I’m planning on writing my thoughts to some of my favourite shows as well as showing some of my drawings and photographs that I’ve taken. It would be great if I could get some suggestions on what you would like me to post, so feel free to comment down below. I hope that you have a great day / night.

I took a picture of this angry pelican when I was out and about one day.  He seems to be quite angry !

The Journey Begins

Hello!

This blog will be about my personal adventures and my everyday life. I chose to start to blog because I wanted a space where I could share my ideas and thoughts. I enjoy travelling and I’ll be sharing my trips here whenever I can.
