Learn Something New Everyday (Feb '17)

Learning something new doesn't have to be a mammoth task, it doesn't have to be physically making something or learning quantum physics. Little facts, little nuggets of knowledge, bits of interesting trivia to add to my brain. I've been writing down something new that I've learnt each day in a notebook and as the end of February has rolled around I wanted to share with you all the little bits and pieces I've learnt.

I feel like it never hurts to learn more bits and pieces about things, and you just never know what one discovery might lead you to find out next. I think it can be particularly helpful if you're struggling to find something you're passionate about, something you want to follow or build in life, or simply something to grab on to as a side hobby. Just wandering around the Internet and picking up random bits of knowledge about all the different parts of life just might lead you to that discovery.

So far it's been super fun learning about random things, and while not every single fact may be 100% useful to my life as a whole, I still find joy in learning about it. Sometimes, while I may just write down a brief note about what I've learnt, if it really interests me I'll go off on an Internet tangent and spend more time researching and learning more. I'm excited at the idea that I might be able to pass on some new knowledge to all of you, and if this is something that interests you, jump on board and next month we can all share what we've learnt.
