Reflections: Kinda like a cheesy album title, but a blog.
This summer's Blog experience has been a good one, all the way through. I've learned in a way that tailors to my interests, what with using the internet to its fullest extent and writing about things that I am interested in. I would write about things like snowboarding, soccer, filmaking, eating, sleeping... whatever I wished, as long as I related it to economics. After doing this for a while, I started to realize that I was learning much faster than I would have normally by reading a boring (sorry, they almost always are) textbook. Not only could I write about things that I like and post them, but others could view those posts, as could I theirs, and consequently learn from their experiences and interests as well. We would get a lot done in class, which seemed to fly by at a rate I wish classes during the school year could, and then we found ourselves working on our blogs at home, as well- we felt they weren't finished. We cared that they weren't done because it was something we enjoyed writing about, and therefore thought it less like work, and more like enjoyment.
