Be always for learning

I love starting my sentences with the word “and”. But there’s some grammar rule that goes like this: Thou shall not start your sentences with “and”. Oh, really? So you can imagine my disbelief when I heard an English professor say, You can start a sentence with the word “and”. Me: You can?! How did I not know this sooner? And from then on guess what? I use any opportunity I can to start my sentences with and. There’s something rebellious about it. I also learned that the grammar rules that we’re taught in school growing up were meant to help us sound formal. We weren’t taught how to write casual like how we speak in informal settings. I recently read a Ghandi quote about learning and life on Pragati Chauhan’s blog Meldoy of Words that goes like this: Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever.

5 Things I Like

This post was inspired by Me Exploring’s “5 Things I Light”. #1 Learning I love the moments when I learn even the most trivial fact. The other day, I watched a video on different levels of making French toast, and I learned that stale bread is best bread to use to make French toast. I don’t remember the last time I made French toast. I don’t think I’ve ever even made it, but I learned something new that might be helpful in the future. In all seriousness, I think this love of learning helps keep me interested in all areas of life such as my job. Learning keeps me in achiever mode and prompts me to ask questions like how can I be better at this? #2 Self-growth With all this learning, it’s not surprising to also find self growth on this list. I don’t claim to be a perfect person, but I am self aware in all of the areas I could grow in. For example, I see room for growth in my social, …
