What did you learn yesterday?

My grandma used to tell me that you should learn something new everyday. There was an interesting study done concerning Alzheimer’s disease which kind of pointed to the fact that staying mentally active (learning something new) helped fight off the disease.  Grandma was no dummy.

 

Yesterday I started book one of the Century Trilogy.  To answers your question, yes I have been living under a rock ok… The book is great so far, I am still approaching the series and the book skeptically especially since it has been so well received. Anything that popular has to have issues right? I will see.

As soon as I began to read I ran across a word I should have known the definition for but did not. It is collier. Do you know what collier means?

Collier:

1.

a ship for carrying coal.
2.

a coal miner.
3.

Obsolete. a person who carries or sells coal.

So if you didn’t know now you do if you did that is pretty cool too. I only wonder what I will learn today.

Life is full of wonderful mysteries that are just waiting for us to solve. I can’t help but think that, living life with this type  of perspective makes it a great and exciting adventure! I encourage everyone to learn something new everyday.

I don’t think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday. ~Abraham Lincoln
