I will post four different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a SYW  post.  Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Share Your World” or “SYW” tag.
  3. Remember to Follow My Blog to get your weekly reminders.

I usually will respond to your entry on your blog, rather than on my page.

For the Love of Challenges

I’ve put together a list of challenges and their hosts.  So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog.  Feel free to contact me anytime.  I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.

 

HERE ARE MY ANSWERS

What would you name the autobiography of your life?  I can come up with a couple titles:

  • It’s all Works out for the Good
  • The Road to Abundance
  • Joy is Not a Straight Line

Which do you prefer sweet, salty or buttery?  Maybe out of this list, buttery with a little sweetness.  I can picture a nice croissant with almond paste and a drizzle of chocolate on top.

What’s the finest education?  In my mind life’s experiences to what has taught me the most.  I didn’t grow up with the best education in the world and I felt inferior or simply stupid most of my adulthood.  I’ve also discovered and I not one to learn from reading books.  It is hard for me to make sense out of letters and words.  I see in pictures though and I can listen and learn easily too.   I used to feel bad because I didn’t go to college and get some kind of degree.  Now knowing I don’t learn by reading words, I am super glad I didn’t go to college.  Although, it has taken me years, to realize I am intelligent and love to learn new things.  I’ve learned so much more than when I was in any classroom.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.   

My life is getting more and more active.  I’m just having fun living life right now.  It’s not that I’m doing anything super special, but life just seems special and fun at the moment.  So I am very happy and content and always eager for more.

  1. Well, I’m glad that you seem to be in the prime of your life! I’m also glad you didn’t ride yourself too hard about not going to college. You read, write, and have a skill in photography and an appreciation for a life well lived. That is plenty good in my book! Besides, look at all the degreed people out there digging ditches or doing some completely unrelated job. Going to college was a great waste of money for them.

  2. I really love “Joy is Not a Straight Line.” And I totally agree that life’s experiences are the best education. Great questions!

  3. Figuring out how you learn is a big deal!! Early on, I realized that I have to see things to memorize them – so I’d take extensive notes at a lecture, to SEE the words, but then never need to study them again.

    I recently realized my memory is even more graphic than needing to see things. One of the “issues” I’m facing with my college courses is that I memorize words as shapes rather than the specific words (I apparently store the first letter and then the shape & length of the word). When I went to take my 1st certification exam, the fact that the screen was extremely large, and used a different font than I do (courier vs arial), caused me some issues because the overall shapes & sizes of words were different from what my brain retained. That made it harder for me to mentally pull the associated info.I knew the answers but everything just looked all wrong.

    Thanks for posting – I needed some non-homework to read!

    ps: I like salted butter, esp European Butter. Specifically, Double Devonshire Cream butter – but I can’t find it for sale anymore.

      1. I realized it because when trying to recall a word I started saying, “it starts with an A… it’s about so long [shown with my fingers]… tall letter at the end…”

        1. I used to do word search puzzles (many years ago). But back then I could look for the size and patterns of each letter. The fonts were all same in all the different books. I hate reading today and it gets worse and worse. I don’t mind my blog, but then the font stays the same and so does the size. I’m still working on this. You might be on to something.

  4. I’ve heard everyone has a different best way to learn things. I have to read something, like instructions, over and over to get it. I can’t remember long enough just to hear someone explain, or by just watching.
    Your ability to see in pictures and learn by seeing, is excellent, Cee! 🙂

    1. If I take notes, I lose what the teacher is saying. Words and letters are too hard to me to understand. Chris is always amazed at how much I retain without taking notes.

  5. Everyone learns differently. I need to read in order to learn something. I can’t learn by seeing only I *have* to have written instructions *and* see someone do something — or have illustrations — in order to learn something correctly. There’s always that “aha!” moment when learning something new, and it’s different for everyone. I’m glad you found your way.
