Aaron Myers – Everyday Language Learner
These are Aaron Myers good things.
Good things to read.
Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman. Neil asks all the questions that we never ask as we swallow every new technological innovation with nary a question as to how it will affect our lives. I only wish he had lived a bit longer so he could be the prophetic voice we need in our age. A book everyone should probably read.
The Harvester by Gene Stratton-Porter. An old book that will be required reading for any young male who should chose to try and date my daughter.
The Divine Conspiracy by Dallas Willard. No other book has done as much to shape my understanding of God and my orthopraxy, my living out what I believe in the day to day of life.
Good things to watch.
TED – I am constantly and consistently amazed by the quality of speakers at TED. Sir Ken Robinson, Brene Brown, Derek Sivers and Garth Lenz are a few of my favorites.
The War staring Kevin Costner and a young Elijah Wood. I haven’t seen this one in a a few years now, but it has always been a powerful movie for me.
The last television show I watched on a somewhat regular basis was MacGyver. I’ve worked hard to try to be like him ever since.
Good things to use.
Moleskine Notebook. I journal nearly everyday and have been using a Moleskine a year for over ten years now. They line up nicely on my book shelf.
iPod touch. As a language learner I love the fact that I can store so much listening material on my iPod. I also love that I can speed up podcasts and other listening material so that I can listen to more content in less time.
Legal Pad and Pen. I do most of my planning and brainstorming on legal pads. It just works for me.
