Open Learning

Wondering was an activity we often surrendered to whilst school years. Drawings/etchings and anime characters came alive, distant lands traveled and the soft noise of a classroom would bring me back to my wooden bench and a tight grip on the unused pencil.

Dear Teachers, I hope you can unravel the minds of the ponderer since it knows one to be one! This post will be a sweet dedication to the subjects we studied in school and how we interpreted them. Mathematics did make me cry and gave me my first ever panic attack! Geographical maps were just means of planning a next vacation, Physics(I never got more than 8/30) is a sister of Math and so I could barely fathom beyond the Mirror; Shakespeare’s play’s brought about the characters in us, History- a Story, is a dive into the pool of the past bringing us to today.
