This week was ok, I felt like it was fairly uneventful. The day that was memorable for me was Friday, not because of the activity or the lessons, but how it upset me. College is supposed to be the place people can share their beliefs, and voice their opinions and receive respect for those beliefs. As Fresh Start students it is our responsibility to be respectful of other people, whether we disagree with them or not. Even if you don’t like that person, there is absolutely no reason for you to be rude or disrespectful. Also, the side conversations that happen during class have got to stop. Not only does it irritate me, but it is also extremely distracting to me, as I have ADD. I’m not always able to control it, so people talking while someone else is talking or everyone talking at once bothers me, like on a physical level. When people do that, it makes me very on edge and I have put my headphones on to drown out the noise a few times. I really would just like to ask that you PLEASE be quiet, and respectful, and for the love of God just act like an adult. Thank you.
Now for the actual blog I am supposed to write about. I am a very hands on person, I like to learn by doing, not just seeing or hearing. So I think I’m a Kinesthetic learner. While I can learn by seeing and hearing, it takes me longer to retain the information. Taking notes helps, I actually enjoy taking notes honestly, even though it’s hard to keep up with the teachers sometimes.
I think my weakest learning style is probably hearing, I’m not sure why it’s my weakest. I have a very hard time remembering things I hear, because there’s no image for me to recall in my head. If I see a list of instructions or tasks that I have to do, I won’t remember all of it. But, I will remember most of it, whereas if I hear it, I’ll remember maybe one or two of the tasks. Seeing things helps me remember more things because it lets me recall an image of something in my head, rather than trying to think of what that person said.
