I started strong with writing down what I learned in October, but it got kind of stressful toward the end and I didn’t end up remembering to keep up with it! So here are the few random things I learned over the past month.
Pop culture trivia
Also from the Popcast, I learned some of the details about the dark origins of fairy tales. Suuuper creepy stuff.
Random medical stuff
This is probably going to be a recurring category in my life because of my job. From working in the pre-op department this month, I learned that “talus” is an ankle bone and “cicatrix” means a scar.
From an interview on the Happier podcast, I learned that there is such a thing as dark matter which is matter in the universe that doesn’t interact with light. So weird.
From my Voxer friends, I learned the history and origins of sororities and how they work. I went to a college that didn’t have them, so I really had no good idea what they are actually like.
Like the rest of the world, I learned that my all-time favorite show Gilmore Girls is coming back with four encore episodes via Netflix! I’m planning to take the day off work and binge-watch it whenever it actually does come out.
Several things were (are) causing me anxiety recently (still), and I re-learned that I’m a work in progress. I don’t recover from stressful situations well and I definitely take it out on the people around me without intending to. That’s not a fun thing to learn over and over again, but at least now I’m taking steps to better myself.
Stay tuned for the books I read in October, and a new blog series coming soon!
