Scholarly Nature

Monday = daily prompt day. What's life without whimsy, after all? So, yeah, learning style. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool reader, solitary as solitary. I learn by the written word. Photos or pictures work too, kind of: with words, I can untangle the hell out of them. If there's a difficult sentence staring up at me, I… Continue reading Scholarly Nature

The Curious Mind’s List

This one's an easy one for me: create a list. There's something deeply satisfying, to me, about a list. Carefully constructed, maybe with bullet points, headings and subheadings and a spot of colour-coding. However, all of that is a bit finicky for a sleepy Friday night, so I'm going to list for you subjects and classes… Continue reading The Curious Mind’s List

Studying for Fun

Start putting in the science… Continue reading On New Things

History’s Teachings

Oh jeez. Are we really going there, now? It's technically a Friday night and I have to pick a teacher from history? Anyone who ever lived?I'm going to do the classic cop-out here, so please forgive me. I don't choose one. It's very difficult to pick just one person out of several hundred years of history. I read… Continue reading History’s Teachings

Sarah, Patron Saint Of…

I've admitted more than once, I'm a bibliophile. I'm also someone who likes learning. And questions. I question things when I can; when my mind isn't too cluttered. I ask for bookstore gift cards so I can pick out what I like; and if that doesn't work my mum will lovingly find out the exact… Continue reading Sarah, Patron Saint Of…

A Crash-Course in Fashion

Fashion. It's not a thing I understand.This is why, when I read fiction, I find myself taking to Google. I find myself typing in strange, mysterious terms such as 'tea dress' or 'examples of vintage clothing.'For all that I can know about literature - I can tell you about various plays or novels and make… Continue reading A Crash-Course in Fashion
