Day 32/67, GED in Five Months, Learning Styles, and Polygons

 Adulting is also about understanding how you learn most effectively, is it not?  The multiple sides of any issue or problem are sort of like the edges of a many-sided object, aka a polygon, no?

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.

Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.

  1. This is critical, not just for children but for adults alike. I think all too often we put a cap on our “Adulting” by thinking that we have perhaps arrived at our level or capacity for learning. :-/ Life, however, is a continued learning process and is something I embrace every single day. Very good message Shira! 🙂

    1. It so totally is, Kym! 🙂
      And I never understand why folks want to think that they can stop learning just because they have reached a certain age!!
      Life has to be a “continued learning process” as you say, totally: the world is always changing, so there is always something new to adapt to, which requires making a change, big or small! That is learning, but I guess most folks don’t see (or want to) it that way.

      Thank you, Kym, for expanding and helping to share this vital message!

      Stay safe,

      1. I agree. We have become rather lackadaisical especially in a world saturated with automated technology. We aren’t held liable for “thinking” anymore and this is sad and highly dangerous. Ignorance isn’t bliss, it’s just plain ole ignorance. 😦

        I try to learn a little something every day, no matter how minute it may seem. 🙂 Keep leading those horses Shira. Not all of them want to die of thirst! LOL ❤ 😀 ❤

  2. I love how you’ve worded this, Shira. And you’re so correct with it. We never stop learning no matter how old we get. I think that as adults, we tend to get settled in what we already know and learned in school and it’s bad. Because if you stop learning, you stop growing. Wonderful post!

    1. Yes! You read my mind!!

      Thank you, JYP!!


      Excellent point, and you get the Class Prize today for mathematical and social thought innovation! 🙂

      So, my next questions have been
      1.) Do I post too often,
      2.) Should I write longer posts?

      What do you think, JYP?

      and Hey, Shavuah Tov!
      (and almost Chodesh Tov -oops, time to really get back to cleaning for Pesach!!)

      1. Yay! I love prizes for mathematical and social thought innovation! 🙂
        1) No! I enjoy your daily lessons for GED students and for us all!
        2) Whatever the spirit moves you to do. Also, it’s not about length but what you do with it (that came out way dirtier than I intended – I mean blog post length!)

        Shavua tov! Chodesh tov! I hate Pesach cleaning, but it is a reminded that it is really coming up soon….

        1. 1.) Thank you! Coolness! 🙂
          2.) Huh? Dirty how -oh! That. No worries, I didn’t notice (and would not have gotten that meaning) until you pointed it out.

          Thank you! I really appreciate that. Ok, so I’m planning to keep my GED posts going, with sporadic continuing updates to the new posts, as the ‘morning layer,’ with a post just before mid-day being added to get back to my Fall weekly language themes, and then addding the occassional 3rd post of the day, generally to reblog something from another blogger.
          That would eventually make 2 to 3 posts per day, with the middle post being maybe a middle to long length post.
          You don’t think that (if I can pull it off) it will be too much, still?

          Ugh, I’m tired already, and I’ve not even re-cleaned the kitchen from my roommate’s fried whatever-is-smelling-up-the-whole-place disaster!

          1. I think it is up to you! In fairness, I cannot claim to have managed to keep up with all of your posts [blogging – and reading blogs and responding to comments on yours and other blogs you follow – is quite time-consuming, albeit in a very enjoyable way (which is why I’m currently online and not working/job-hunting/studying for the exam/Pesach cleaning or doing anything else on my to-do list!)] But it really depends on your goals for your blog as well with respect to traffic and engagement. I am not an expert on these things.
            Sorry- Pesach cleaning sucks in general and is worse with a roommate!

            1. Well, I want to maximize the number of eyes on my Baby Acres idea for making society suck less, but I will admit that I suspect that it’s not necessarily the number of eyes, but the type of eyes that land on those ideas that matter more for translating them into a viable potential vision, among other potential visions in play, as a possibility for movement-building.
              What I actually need is a dedicated co-conspirator, and that’s what I’m casting the net for, as I try to build enough of a following to be taken seriously, at the same time.
              Not sure how to do any of that.

              And yeah, Pesach cleaning with an entitled blissfully ignorant, toxically positive roomy who believes herself to be “specially deserving of the best.”

              Can I have that boarding school job now, please?
