I…. have a plan. And when I get a plan, that’s when you brace yourselves for something so intensely anticlimactic your great-grandchildren will feel the disappointment.
The saying goes that you learn something new every day. I'm out to prove this theory. Or test it, rather. Let’s see how much I actually learn on a daily basis. I don’t care what it is I learn, how long or abstract the concept is, how I came by the information, or anything along those lines. If I didn’t know it before, I learned it. If I had an inkling of the idea before, it doesn’t count. Old news. The rules state that the new knowledge has to be just that: brand new information. I don’t care if I have to look up Google’s little-known Fact of the Day. At least it’s something. Ninety days work for everyone? It's a moderate length; it's doable. So let’s go.
This is so going to be harder than you think it will be. But still, how can learning one thing a day be a chore? We’ll find out, I guess. God help me if I miss a day.
And yes, unfortunately for all of you, I plan to share all my new-found intelligence here. Partly to hold me accountable and partly because it will keep me pinned to a blogging schedule of sorts. (Routine = gold. But. Routine also = boring most of the time. Eh, life is a balance.) Oh! And as long as I write my discoveries, I won’t be the only one learning stuff. I’ll be sharing with all of you wonderful people who absolutely want to know everything I do, right? I knew you’d agree. You guys are great.
Okie dokie. Day one. That’s today. Or yesterday, since it’s past midnight. (Yay.) Suffice to say I stomped trigonometry. Finally. That concept took forever. But now I get it, so it’s all good. Whew. I feel stupid, taking this long to grasp the thing, but… I guess the important thing is that I understand it in the end? Sure. I never claimed to be a math whiz. Words are my niche. Numbers are…. not. Antilogarithms are tomorrow. At least I actually like logarithms. Here goes nothing.
