The following explanation is upon Jack’s request.
I blog late at night, I quickly write something up directly on the Website, no draft, no nothing. My English is not exceptional and I’ve mentioned all of this before. I get carried away in what I’m writing and I don’t pay attention to spelling or anything else. Plus I know Jack’s going to correct my mistakes the next day so I just let loose and don’t look back.
Jack’s just looking out for me, he doesn’t want me embarrassing myself. I personally am not at all embarrassed. Poney, Pony what’s the difference. I can’t spell, does it mean I’m stupid? Maybe.
I’ll be the first to tell you I don’t know anything about anything. I found out what the International Space Station is two years ago. Scary part is I have a masters degree in Science. Having a degree doesn’t mean you’re smart. It just means you’ve been lucky to have been rewarded for determination.
If you don’t know what the International Space Station is, it’s ok. Google it. It’s pretty interesting. This kind of thing is declarative knowledge, meaning it’s just stuff you know because you’ve heard about it or read about it and I don’t think it’s all that quantifies intelligence. I don’t know what the capital of Sweden is…I look it up, oh it’s Stockholm. I think intelligence is more than that. I think it’s a combination of self development, behavioral, adaptation and interaction skills. Things that you don’t just acquire by reading a Wikipedia definition.
I wrote my heart out and then the post got erased beyond this point and now I have to try and figure out what I had written.
Basically we shouldn’t be measuring each other in “intelligence” or anything else for that matter. We should all work at being real with one another and getting over superficial matters.
I didn’t set out to write any of this. I was planning on writing about my day with A2 at the Sugar Shack. I’m learning about this blog as I go and I’m seeing that it’s slowly representing different sides of me. I guess were still in the Character Development phase.
I learned that word today.
(I can’t remember what else I had written… I’ll have to end it like this)
