Word of the Week – Learning

Each Friday, I would like to share a word of the week with you. Something that summarises what I’ve been up to, how I’ve felt and how life is generally going. I’d love if you’d share one in the comments. It can be so therapeutic to reflect on what’s been happening, good or bad!

 

This week I’ve chosen the word learning.

When I graduated with a masters degree a couple of years ago I thought I’d paid my dues to education. I mean, I did primary school, high school AND stuck it out through six years of uni. That’s enough right?!

Turns out, as an adult (still figuring out what that means), you never stop learning. About yourself, about other people, about life in general really.

For example did you know that TAG stands for Touch and Go?! Found that one out on Facebook the other day, much to my amazement.

Seriously though, this has definitely been a week of learning.

Sunshine and Rain will be growing a little more next week. After connecting with the wonderful Rebecca from Becca Blogs it Out, we have spent some time discussing our blogging goals and decided to start a new linky. As of next Wednesday we would love other bloggers to join us for Weigh in Wednesday. It will be a supportive linky for those of us looking to lose weight and improve our health and fitness. Neither of us have done anything like this before and so we have had to learn the whole process from scratch. There have been hiccups, but we are ready to go now and so excited to welcome new faces to link with us!

Posting regular debt payment progress reports on my other blog My Debt Diary is teaching me a lot about my money and opening my eyes to the reality of my debt. When you blindly throw money at an amount and hope for it to go down it can be frustrating to see slow progress. My debt payment reports break down my income and show me exactly how much my debt has decreased by. This is as much a way for me to share updates with my readers as it is an opportunity for me to learn for myself how I’m doing and understand exactly where my money is actually going.

Outside of my blogging bubble I have also been expanding my knowledge for my freelancing work. One of the new clients I mentioned in last weeks blog post has asked more of me than any client before. The work is absolutely manageable for me, I just need to take the time to learn a few new drawing techniques and study some example projects. If I can do a good job, I should sit myself in a good position for more future work too.

Learning is never a bad thing, no matter how much you think you already know!

 

So there it is, my word of the week and a summary of the past seven days.

Do share your own in the comments!

  1. I love the fact that you never stop learning. I’ve found that I enjoy it so much more as an adult too especially as there is no longer that pressure that comes with being in education. Learning new things to help take on new challenges at work or just because you want to learn them can be so much fun at times. Good luck with your new linky. #WotW

    1. Absolutely Louise, it’s having the freedom to choose that makes all the difference! Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ #WotW

  2. I couldn’t agree more! As you’ve seen from my post, I’ve just completed my degree at this late stage in life and I now have my eye on postgraduate options. Then there is the constant learning in every day life and blogging, it all just keeps on coming! Sounds like yours is all paying off for you, glad it’s going well x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

    1. I’m getting there one step at a time definitely! It’s nice to record these things for days when I start to struggle, I can look back and appreciate the positives. I’m really looking forward to reading about what you’ll be getting up to next ๐Ÿ™‚ #WotW

  3. As an old person, I can assure you that learning never does stop. In fact I think I’ve learnt a lot more in the past couple of years than I have all my life! Good luck with your new linky, it’s a great idea for a supportive link up.
    Well done in securing some freelance work, I wish you the best of luck x

    1. Haha Anne, I certainly wouldn’t describe you as old! Life experience is certainly just as valuable as words in a book, in fact more so! Thank you so much ๐Ÿ™‚ #WotW

  4. Every day is a school day ! I was surprised about the TAG thing too. I totally agree with you that you should never stop learning. Good luck with your new linky, it’s a great way to connect with fellow bloggers. Have a lovely weekend x #WotW

    1. Thank you so much Angela ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m a bit nervous about the linky working the first time around, but I’m sure we’ll be fine!
