Blogging Challenge – Day 25: Things I Would Still Like To Learn

Blogging Challenge – Day 25: Things I Would Still Like To Learn

Hi guys! How is your day going? I hope that you are happy, and that whatever you’re up to today, your day has been and will continue to be enjoyable. πŸ™‚ ❀
Yesterday’s prompt was all about things I’ve already learned, and today’s prompt is about things I would still like to learn! This is actually the prompt I’m the most excited about writing, because it got me thinking about all of the different subjects I’m very interested in learning more about. Check out the list I came up with below!

You can read about what this challenge is here. And make sure to check out Cheila’s and Angela’s posts for today, too – we’re all doing the challenge together!

Things I Would Still Like To Learn [About]

  • History. I am insanely interested in and in love with this subject, and despite how much I’ve already learned, there’s always more. To name a few I haven’t touched on very much yet, there’s American history, ancient Egypt, ancient Greece, and Britain’s history. (They’re all things I learned a bit about in school, but am looking forward to still learning more about πŸ™‚ )
  • Geography. I think that it would be really cool to know more about where countries are in relation to each other, as well as country/state capitals. I’m especially wanting to learn about Europe, Central America, and South America.
  • Theology. Only just recently did I learn what this subject was, and since then, I’ve been interested in digging deeper into it. πŸ™‚
  • Biology. For 10th grade science, I took a course in biology, but there’s still sooo much I have yet to learn about! For example, how plants work, why different animals behave the way they do, etc.
  • Chemistry. Ahhh yes!!! I already love this one so much. However, I haven’t searched for any really good resources yet to continue my study of this, so that is on pause for now. One day, I’ll learn more about cell structure, the periodic table itself, how chemical compounds work, different brilliant chemists/alchemists, and so much more.
  • Linguistics. For the last couple of years, I have been extremely interested in different languages. If I hear anyone out in public speaking in another language, I am fascinated, and always so excited when I catch a word here and there, haha. There truly isn’t a language I don’t want to learn, but the first five that come to mind (not including Spanish) are French, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, and Korean. (Honestly not sure where the last one came from! But it would be very interesting.) There are also different Mayan languages spoken in Guatemala by the indigenous people, and their native tongues would be so, SO cool to learn one day.
  • Anatomy. I have a feeling that if I had a better understanding of how the human body works, there wouldn’t be so many things that freak me out. If I had a scientific understanding of the different functions, I think that would open my mind to how intricately designed and masterfully created our bodies are, and no longer feel afraid of so much. πŸ™‚
  • Color. Apparently, as I found out not too long ago, people have done studies on color – how humans/animals respond to them, how colors are created and what they symbolize, etc … it’s something I’d have to learn more about to fully understand, but from what I know now, it sounds really neat!
  • Foreign Cultures. From Native Americans, to the Mayan empire, to the ancient Chinese dynasties … there’s still so much I have to learn.

Among the various activities and skills I’d like to learn one day are the piano keyboard, knitting, basic automobile knowledge (in the event that I need to change a tire or do something under the hood when I’m out by myself), amigurumi, and maybe some gardening skills, too. πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading, guys! I really enjoyed writing this post, as it has got me thinking about how I can dig deeper into all of these subjects once I finish with school next year! So, how about you?

What’s something YOU’D still like to learn?

Happy Thursday!

  1. Great list Maggie! I also love learning more about history and I’m always trying to learn more about politics. I would also be interested in learning more about music too. I joke that I only listen to musical theatre, Disney, and classic rock but it’s actually true and I need to branch out!

    1. Thanks, Pamela! Oh yeah I’d like to learn more about politics, too πŸ™‚ I’ll have the chance to do that for 12th grade social studies; I’m taking Government, haha!

  2. Learning is beautiful! I have books on some of the foreign cultures that you listed and I learn more through YouTube. I recently went through a book on anatomy because of the story I am currently working on. Honestly, Megs, this post got me excited because I am learning almost (if not all) from your list. I recently added Law to it.

      1. You definitely should and yes, add Law. I find it intriguing and it’s been a love of mine ever since I can remember.

  3. So many things too learn and I have all confidence you will have that list knocked out in no time! Colours do have affect people. I studied on it for a bit when I was moving into our home, when I was choosing the colours of paint I wanted to paint each room. I made the mistake of painting our living room a chocolate brown(I think you have a picture of that) It makes you sleep, I didn’t care I liked the colour lol Well everyone who comes to my home says they feel like they could take a nap and they don’t know why LOL I do πŸ˜‰ Blues suppress appetite, while yellows, oranges, and reds make you hungry, that’s why most restaurants(think fast food places) are in those bright colours. It’s pretty interesting.

    1. Hahaha that’s so funny about your living room! Chocolate brown is such a pleasant color, but I can see how it would make one sleepy, haha. That is very interesting about fast food logo/restaurant colors!

  4. Sometimes you can find old textbooks at used bookstores. I found a World History textbooks, cause I enjoy World History. I highly recommend World History to you. You’ll get ancient Egypt and Greece, and pack ton of other stuff as well : )

      1. Yep! I never thought about it till last year when I was at a thrift store. It just hit me that I should see what kind of textbooks are available. I was psyched to see there was a number of books available, I previously didn’t realize.

    1. Oh, I need to add all of those to my list! 😍 I hadn’t thought of some of those, thanks. πŸ’• aww thank you so much! Learning new things makes me so happy; I just love it πŸ™‚ I guess I’m just inspired by the world around me! So many different things inspire my posts. ❀

  6. Nice list! πŸ™‚ I’m not sure; usually I realize I want to learn about something when I need it for a novel. XD Spanish is definitely up there. One of the last things I wanted to learn about were the underground cities in Australia and why they didn’t suffocate under there. I know that sounds random. πŸ˜‚

    When it comes to color, I stumbled upon this link a while back and I thought it was fascinating: http://www.businessinsider.com/what-is-blue-and-how-do-we-see-color-2015-2

    1. Thanks! Haha, I’ve had that happen, too. Novel research sparks a lot of curiosity in new subjects! Hehe that is random, although very interesting, too πŸ™‚ That article sounds cool! I’ll save that link, thanks.
