Hello readers! I hope everyone is staying safe out there. I know many of you have some extra time on your hands, and it may be tempting to spend that time re-watching Tiger King, but I have another suggestion that may be just as fun: Learning!
I know, it’s the exact opposite of Tiger King, but continuing education is essential in any field, and ours is no different. Sometimes it’s valuable to learn an entirely new skill, like some latest program that takes the industry by storm! Other times, it can feel good to just brush up on the basics.
I’ve been having a lot of fun with Kahn Acadamy over the past few months. They have a grammar section that is quite informative and fun (at least I find it enjoyable). It’s also perfect for the adult learner looking to brush up on some skills they haven’t worked on in several decades. I’ve got US History lined up after Grammar, and I’m thinking about learning some World History after that. You can learn anything 😉.
Another valuable resource is podcasts. Yeah, I know, you’re just not that into podcasts, but now that life has thrown us all a curveball, it may be time to adjust your swing 😉. Podcasts are a great way to learn something extra in just ten minutes while you’re doing something else. I listen to a variety of news and history podcasts. It’s a great way to learn without trying. I’m all about doing things without trying.
