Spontaneous Learning

Quick note about BM.

I love learning spontaneously, learning new things when I least expect it. I’m a big believer that there is always something new to learn.

One time, I was curious about the five boroughs of New York City, so I looked them up and learned about each borough’s unique history and culture. Afterward, I was finally able to identify each borough on a map.

Another time, I came across an article about Derek Boogaard, a professional hockey player who died from drug abuse, brought on by brain damage caused by fights on the ice. I learned that concussions and brain damage are huge topics in the sport world, especially with new studies highlighting the negative effects on retired athletes.

I usually look up all the bands/artists that I listen to, as well as the authors I read.

Over the summer, I found a new interest in Myers-Briggs, a personality type indicator. Spent a lot of time crawling forums to learn more about different personality types.

I’m also a big fan of internet memes and pop culture references. If there’s a reference I don’t get right away, I’ll usually do some research.

Point is, there’s always something new to learn, and the more spontaneous, the more fun and effective learning can be!
