“Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.” ~Angela Monet
Now, you can share the music to which you are dancing so insanely. Whenever you are on the go — while traveling this holiday season, at a backyard bbq hanging out with friends, at winter camp to impress bunk buddies, a small parking lot tailgate party, walking through the park, backpacking and hiking through the hills, or to set the mood for a romantic rooftop dinner — these portable speakers from GottaGreatGift.com allow your music to be heard. So let the music play and dance on everyone, dance on!
“Without music life would be a mistake.” ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche.
*Note: Locations where portable speakers may be a mistake include libraries, public trains/subways, church, and anywhere else you get the cautionary, annoyed glares from unsuspecting bystanders.

The Gift Chick: Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?
Mary: Quite contrary indeed! This winter season has not got me down since I have switched to this amazing artificial garden I’ve created. No more barren fields of frostbitten Silverbells and Cockle Shells. Now, I can sit at my desk and admire colorful beautiful flowers all winter…in fact, all year long! It has definitely lifted my mood

Investigate your natural mode of learning. You may not realize that how you learn and prepare yourself for passing life’s little tests may reflect how you study best for school exams. Vice versa.
You’ve been chugging along in school for sometime since Summer ended. You’ve soon got the holiday breaks to look forward to, Thanksgiving then Christmas. Hooray! But before all that, this means that teachers are ready to test you on what you have been learning so far. How confident are you with your learning skills and study habits? There are many different types of learners – multiple intelligences, if you will. Which one are you?
- Linguistic – A learner who likes to read, write, and tell stories. They are good at memorizing words; so they learn best through saying, hearing, and seeing words.
- Logical – A learner who likes to experiment, explore/research, and figure things out. They are good with numbers/math, reasoning, logic and problem solving; so they learn best through categorizing and classifying abstract patterns/relationships.
- Spatial – A learner who likes to draw/design, build/create, daydream, watch TV/movies/pictures, and play with machines. They are good at puzzles/mazes, reading charts/maps, sensing change and imagining things; so they learn best through visualizing, dreaming, working with pictures/colors.
- Musical – A learner who responds to music, who likes to sing/hum tunes, listen to music, and play an instrument. They are good at keeping time/rhythm, picking up sounds/pitches, and remembering melodies; so they learn best through rhythm, melody, and music.
- Kinesthetic – A learner who likes move around, talk/touch/use body language. They are good at physical activities like sports and crafts; so they learn best through moving around and touching/interacting/processing through bodily sensations.
- Naturalistic – A learner who likes to be outside interacting with the surroundings and everything in nature. They are good at categorizing/organizing, planning, and preservation/conservation; so they learn best by studying in a natural setting, studying natural phenomenon and learning how things work.
- Interpersonal – A learner who likes to have lots of friends, be social and join groups. They are good at communicating, understanding people, organizing and leading others; so they learn best through sharing, comparing, relating, cooperating and interviewing.
- Intrapersonal – A learner who likes to work alone and pursue their own interests. They are good at understanding self, focusing inward, following instincts, and pursuing interests/goals; so they learn best through individualized projects working alone, at their own pace and in their own space.
Now take this Multiple Intelligence Test to see which type of learner are you! Here’s my test scores showing I’m a Kinesthetic learner.
Regardless of what type of learner you are, if you are struggling with material in life, work or school, it is always wise to seek help from others. With some information taken from Dartmouth College’s Academic Skills Center, here are a few extras tips to better prepare yourself to learn.
- AVOID PROCRASTINATION & CRAMMING!
- Original learning must happen. You obviously have to be exposed to the material before reviewing it. You’d be surprised just how much material you can retain from class or work meetings by just paying attention, rather than playing on your cellphone or taking a nap.
- Eat and sleep. Making sure you are well rested and well nourished help your brain to function with more focus and efficiency. This does not included junk food!
- Early review. Before you even attempt to learn new material in class or at work, go the extra mile to glance head in the textbooks or work documents. Memorization of new material is most effective when associated with what is already known. Immediately after your class or work meeting, review/revise your notes by adding any material comes to mind. Forgetting quickly occurs shortly after learning. Studies have also shown that highlighting your notes is more effective than underlining! (But don’t quote me on that because, as demonstrated above, I’m poorly Linguistic and do not remember my reference. LOL)
- Space and location. Give yourself sometime to digest the material after the initial review. Several brief periods spread over 5-10 days ensures good recall of information. Studies also have shown that varying your study locations helps for good recall because you force your brain to retain information without environmental associations. (And for this I can provide you with an actual reference. Check this link!)
- Intermediate review. Spread this out over several months. This should focus on understanding and organization of the material. You may dedicate only between 5-10 minutes of review but, over 4 months, you’ll have better information retention!
- Final Review. As it indicates, this is a review and no new material should be learned. Take the time to draw together final main currents of thought, outline and organize from memory.
- AVOID PROCRASTINATION & CRAMMING!
No matter what type of learner you are, GottaGreatGift has the perfect accessory to help you develop those natural learning skills. Or you may also want to grab a gift from GottaGreatGift for encouragement, to lift someone’s mood, take their mind off school/work and turn their day around, or congratulate them on a job well done!
