10 KeepCallers, 1 Question: What’s the most recent thing you’ve learned?
Learning is a lifelong thing that we do willy-nilly. Life never ceases to teach us new lessons, whether we like it or not. We learn something new every day, about ourselves and the ones around us, or about things we’re passionate about. Our hobbies keep our minds active even after our school days are behind us. So, what are the things our fellow KeepCallers learned recently?
Lately, I’ve become more patient, understanding, and forgiving with myself. And even though you may think this leads to a plateau in the learning area, it’s the total opposite. It makes me more eager to try out new things since the fear of failing is reduced to a minimum. Therefore, I learned:
- more about the GSM network (like APN settings, MMSC, SIM card specifications) than I ever believed my brain could handle
- how to bake gingerbread, banana bread & french croissants
- that it’s ok to fail, to stumble, to make a total mess, as long as you continue what you started, because: “Success is not the absence of failure, it’s the persistence through failure.
I’ve learned how to cook bean soup. 😄
The most recent thing I’ve learned is that if you lick someone’s elbow when they are not paying attention they won’t feel it. Use this information wisely.
One thing I learned recently is to always look our dear ones in the eyes or write to them if possible, and tell them how much they mean to us. I’ve lost several relatives and friends to Covid this past year, some were elderly but most were not older than 40, 60 years old at the most.
Being caring to someone even if we are far away is one of the benefits that technology has brought to us, sometimes we take these privileges for granted, when we should always be careful about what we say and what we reflect on to others.
The last thing I’ve learned was how to make pho soup. 🍲
The most recent thing I learned was how to play a song on the piano and sing it.
Well, I’d say that the most recent thing I learned is that the Cosmic microwave background is a “relic radiation” that is still present since the Big Bang. Although it is way too complicated to fully understand it, it is also fascinating since it is proof of the origin of the universe, and actually was discovered by accident.
Now, how I heard about it is through an awesome Sci-Fi novel called “The Three-body Problem” by Cixin Liu and also by a two episode Netflix series “The beginning and end of the universe”.
The most recent thing I learned is how to invest in cryptocurrency. :)
The most recent thing I’ve learned is how to prepare vegetarian dishes, like tacos, spaghetti, and hamburgers. 😊
