We humans have the amazing capability to store an abundance of information in this big beautiful brain of ours. So why shouldn’t we explore, learn and know as much as we can about this wonderful world we live in? I definitely want to. I learn, because I don’t want to die with regret. I don’t want to die feeling like a fool, because I didn’t do anything in my life, never succeeded or never knew anything. Learning makes me grow as a person and it opens doors to a variety of options. Learning provides me the ability to create my own future.
How do I learn?
Well, that's not very hard, because every person out there learns the same way I do, by making mistakes. My experiences and my mistakes are the very things that made me grow as a person and from it I've learned. It are these experiences and mistakes that define me as a person and they occurred in my life due to the fact that I challenge myself. That I am willing to throw myself out there and try new things, knowing that without mistakes, I won’t learn. What Albert Einstein once said: “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new” (Albert Einstein).
What did I learn?
In Language arts class I’ve learned that I benefit immensely from the perspectives of other people and that without listening for understanding I would be self-absorbed and ignorant. In Media and Art I’ve learned to embrace failure and risk as a part of my life that could enhance my personal growth and ameliorate my growth mindset. Being in Japan and moreover, being with my boyfriend has made me discover quite a lot about myself. Being apart from my family has bettered my responsibility and improved my organization and management. Being with my boyfriend has taught me how to handle situations (with people) better. And even more special, he has taught me the beauties of life and the value of relationships.
