Shanae writes about the relationship between thinking about the big things and forgetting the little things. Conor’s art shows that there is always something going on in his head, too. Conor and Shanae are students of Gifted Online.
There is always something going on in my head. Sometimes I forget things. It’s probably because I have millions of thoughts and remembering something so SILLY like a pen is not the most important thing for me.
I will forget these things at school. But what I have found is that if I do more challenging work then it becomes easier to remember. My head doesn’t feel as crowded if some thoughts are on paper or, in GO’s case, online.
GO is my challenge. It gives me opportunities to grow mentally, and to expand my knowledge. To let me learn how I learn, my boundaries, and what I really can do. So next time I need to remember the pen-it won’t be forgotten.
