Day Eleven: Make a Prompt Personal
Today’s assignment: publish a post based on your own, personalized take on a blogging prompt.To find our Daily Prompt, head to the The Daily Post — you’ll see the prompt in an orange box on the middle-right side of the screen.
What’s your learning style? Do you prefer learning in a group and in an interactive setting? Or one-on-one? Do you retain information best through lectures, or visuals, or simply by reading books?
This prompt takes me down memory lane. I have always liked to read by myself. When in school I remember studying for the tests, sitting by myself. If there was a cricket match going on the radio would be switched on and the commentary in the background. :)) But, now cricket no longer interests me, I feel there is an overdose of cricket. Earlier there had been a season for everything. Those were the days of the radio and there would be some music in the background.
Later in college, I loved to study in the library, surrounded by books. There is always something fascinating about books. A few years ago, I visited my college and the library seemed as fascinating as it had been long back.
In 1999, I wanted to continue my studies. History has always fascinated me. So I joined our State University which has a Distance Education programme. It was fun and challenging to study. After my children left for school, I used to read all the books and it was really very interesting. I still remember being so scared about the exams and I almost refused to write. But my husband encouraged me. And once I started writing everything I had read came back to me. I was in a different world.
We keep learning every moment of our lives . I love reading and enjoy doing so when I am by myself. I get so involved in the book so it is always nice when I am alone.When we are others I feel we cannot concentrate on the book completely.
