I read the headlines daily, and if I have time, I also read articles that interest me, usually from a variety of websites to make sure I get a good range of views and sources.
I've been collecting second hand books from charity shops for almost two years and plan to read them upon graduating when I have more time on my hands, all of which are nonfiction (e.g. history, politics, philosophy, sociology, psychology, architecture, and the environment).
Currently learning German and studying a data Science and Big data analisys Master Degree. Pretty though tho.
I'm also learning Python by myself because we use R at the master and Python is also useful for this field. And I read quite a lot. Currently I'm reading a book about Polish history during WWII, specifically because I became interested in the Warsaw Uprising when I was traveling in Poland.
I've considered reading some of his work as I've got an interest in philosophy, but haven't studied it before. I've heard a lot about this guy. Is there anything you'd recommend, for beginners? Or any introductory works/books?
>>35677723 if you want to know more about Polish history during WWII, I suggest you read "Stones for the rampart", non-fiction novel by Aleksander Kamiński, which shows the acts of sabotage and armed resistance during the WWII and the devotion and sacrifice of many young men. You can also read Tadeusz Borowski's short stories, if you can find them translated. They show that WWII wasn't only time of dedication, and people basically wanted to survive and done everything they could to do so, often commiting acts of uncertain morality, but they may prove to be quite easy to misinterpret so try to find them with some king of scientific description. If you're into poetry, read some Krzysztof Kamil Baczyński and Tadeusz Gajcy.
>>35677882 no problem breh, I never was really interested in history so I've tried to help you with literature, I'm afraid that it may be hard to find it in English, but you may at least find something.
>>35677926 Consider your future prospects and the countries that are close to you. Usually in the US one of the most obvious is Mexican Spanish because there are many people who have that as their first language. Spanish can be helpful and a gateway drug to the other romance languages.
I started French because I'm a Europoor, and French is a major EU language, as well as spoken in Canada, which I want to visit someday. (Also considering some basic Arabic, lel)
read the /int/ sticky, useful stuff in there. Also, if you can, try to expose yourself to the target language as much as possible. spoken is best. Listening to the news or watching movies/series with subtitles.
I recommend everyone who wants to have a flexible mind to learn second languages. Keeps your memory in check, works your left and right hemisphere as well. Language learning is GOAT for flexibility of mind.
>How does /fit/ train it's brain?
reading is great. I'm also a uni student so I study and read and write a lot as well.
Trying to get into meditating but it is hard to keep it consistent.
Thanks. I understand some of Plato's and Aristotle's work from what I briefly covered in studying Jurisprudence, though know much more about Locke. Natural Law is a joke though, but an interesting concept nonetheless.
I found Spanish much easier than French, and more enjoyable. Duolingo is a pretty good app if you're short on time and because it's interactive, it can often help. Variations of it are spoken in Mexico and South America, with Portuguese and Italian not being all that different, so it can be a good way to learn those other languages too.

I meditated for 15 minutes a day for about four days before I stopped, and it's not as if I have a lot to do. It's just habit and honestly a little uncomfortable.
But it doesn't have to be anything other than simple visualization, which can be done without Hindu religious practices.
>imagine a gentile spray washer is installed inside of your brain >decide what part you want to target, say frontal lobe >turn the virtual sprinkler system on thinking about what improvements it will make in that area >frontal lobe clean -- imagination, organization >see the results of a clean frontal lobe >move to the next area, Brocca's say >clean Brocca's area means eloquence >continue
Don't know all of the areas of the brain? You will. Just do one at a time, because until your next meditation session you will see the benefits.
