I Have Learned Something Today

Yes you have. Feel free to share it with us. :) 109 People

    I’m not very good at speaking,

    people who know me or talk to me would disagree, I think. Most times, when I speak, it feels as if I am just letting words fall from my brain out my mouth. Very rarely do I speak about things that I actually feel invested in one way or another and it has occurred to me in a...

    So there's this guy in my martial arts club (we

    do 3 styles throughout the year) and from the day I "met" him I was frightened of him. Was I very judgmental? Absolutely. Maybe I wasn't judgemental to a mean extreme, but he's very tall, and has this really serious and set face, and I guess that just made me slightly nervous or...

    I thought I had failed at something important.

    I set three goals, and failed them all. But these three goals were for a higher purpose. Like steps to putting something together. But this not a tangible thing, it is for my personal sake. Well I failed all three of my goals but I achieved the main thing I was trying to do...

    I am have a strong opinion

    and I start question with that in mind. I want to learn and I want to understand. Just in the last 15 minutes I've learned that I need to phrase my questions better, and that I'm wrong...a lot. What a humbling experience.

    Hegemony.... People do live in a bubble in the

    States. The Middle East has so much going on now and I don't see much coverage. Saudia Arabia is engaged in a war in Yemen launching air strikes and nothing in American media, but we sure know what Kim Kardashian and her family are up to today in Yahoo. Ridiculous!

    There is a very good chance

    that I'm dyslexic, which is why I had such a hard time in school. My brain isn't wired to understand numbers or anything mathematical. BUT, often times, people with dyslexia have very high IQ's. It's also very likely that I am one of those people. I'm happy about the high IQ...
