What are you learning?


reader-512This is something I am planning for my Italian blog, but then I thought, what the heck, why not do it on Karavansara, too?
So here goes.

The basic premise:

The brain, if you don’t keep it working, it shrivels and dies

From which, the basic question:

What are you learning?

The comments are open.

And here I go first, to give the good example:

I am currently refreshing my Latin and my French, and I am learning a bit of Bayesian logic. I am also about to start reading a book called The Singing Neanderthals, about the origins of Music, Language, Mind and Body.

And you, out there?
Are you learning something new or refreshing some old knowledge?

Also, what are you using as a learning tool?

I am currently using old-fashioned books and ebooks, with a side serving of Youtube videos.

  1. I’m learning a new job. Have been in it for 6 days. I’ve learnt enough to know I hate it! I’m also learning how to hone my craft (writing).


  2. Ploughing on with an OU science degree. But I feel like it is melting my brain not exercising it!


    • Try adding something completely different.
      Learn chess, or go.
      Or try another language.
      In my experience, university study can become stultifying if you don’t “shift gears” once in a while.
