This post is for the Secret Subject Swap, a monthly blog challenge. Information about the swap can be viewed at the end of this post, as well as links to all others taking part. Have a peek at some of the other bloggers and see what they had to come up with. If you are a blogger, consider joining up for future months!
My theme is “Have you ever had a glitch in the matrix moment? If so what was it?” and it was submitted by Climaxed.
I had to Google to see what this even means. But from my searching it seems it means “deja vu.”
So my short answer is, yes, I have experienced these moments. Several times. Thing is, once they happen, they leave my mind. I can’t think of an actual moment where it happened.
I know I’ve experienced it and I know it’s always a wild feeling. But outside of that, I have no memory of the actual moment. But that got me thinking about the word “matrix.”
Have you ever seen Ferris Bueller? The scene with the one teacher that has the slow words, and then speeds up a little?
Yeah, when I was first in college at a two-year school, I had a sociology teacher that talked like that. It would put you to sleep. And most of the class wasn’t about sociology.
It was about the learning process. And I’m not kidding.
He had this thing he called a learning matrix. For the life of me, I can’t remember the whole thing behind it (we’re talking 25 or so years ago), but it was all … how to learn.
He would start by drawing something on the board and would go over the matrix for 3/4 of class. Then he’d do a quick lesson, assign homework and call it a day.
And it was tough to stomach. Think about a whole college semester. A M/W/F class. About the learning matrix. I mean, I guess to a point it got drilled into me because I still remember it all these years later.
Though I don’t remember the actual matrix.
Maybe I’m experiencing a matrix moment every time I think about it? Knowing I’ve seen it before.
When all said and done, I think it was his way of trying to help us find a way to learn. I had another class with him that wasn’t a 101 and he barely even touched on it.
No matter what though, I always think of that when I hear “matrix” and it always brings me back.
