Yes, I will admit it. My geography knowledge is horrendous. When ever someone asks a geography question, I have a natural inclination to look away in the opposite direction. Just like when you were class and didn’t know the answer, if you just didn’t look up and get eye contact then you won’t be pointed out to answer.
I will pass the blame and say it was the educational system that failed me. How come everyone else can sing a little song and know all the capitals of the US? I wish I was able to travel like I want to travel, then I could learn first hand.
While I have done nothing to remedy my lack, I have thought about dedicating a blog post each month to teaching myself some bit of geography. Maybe after admitting this I will actually do it. And if you learn something new with me then that is just a bonus or you can just pass it by as something you already know, since your geography could not be as bad as mine.
And to make myself feel even dumber, here is a youTube video of a little girl (maybe 3 or 4 years old?) naming the capitals.
So, what do you consider to be your Achilles Heel?
