Today I went to the first in a 9-lesson series on art history & appreciation.
It brings me memories of the good old days in school. I really enjoyed the content (prehistory to antiquity art history), and reading ahead helps!! Can’t wait to finish the rest of the readings. :)
Also I’ve started my first book of 2012, The Story of Art, so far so very good. 16 months ago
How I did it: For many years, I've
been living through experiences rather than knowledge. As far as I was
concerned, it was enough, but as I started to open myself to others, I realized
I could merely speak the name of many many things, but not explain them or talk
about it for more than a few minutes. And it frustrated me. It did because I
have a deep desire to inform and help others, and even if I was able to do much
for myself, I wasn't for others.
So I started slowly to improve my knowledge in some fields I knew I had friends
interested in. I learned about movies, politic, chemistry and put more interest
in what I was studying at school. It was not that much, but as for almost
anything, once the bullet as started to roll down the hill, it managed to
generate the start of an avalanche. I changed my opening page on Firefox for Cyberpress
(an online newspaper) and each time a subject interest me, I try to read a
minimum on it. I bought a board on which I write the most interesting lines I
learn and questions I want to investigate. Now that the routine is started, I
am now learning continuously. Read how I did it… 3 years ago
