    Interesting! I might have to go have a look at duolingo. Aiming to learn Arabic to a fluent level 😆
    How was 13 reasons why? Thats next on my list to read.
    I recommend you read I Am Pilgrim. Its such a good book (910 pages long though :mmm:)
    Highly recommend it and good luck learning Arabic!
    13 Reasons Why was amazing! I read it in one day; through-provoking and was an easy-read which worked well together. I found many parallels with the Perks of Being a Wallflower in terms of the writing style and stressing the importance of mental health.

    By the by, I just ordered I Am a Pilgrim- looking forward to reading it!

    I challenge you to do a touch-typing test...if you are not already familiar with 10fastfingers, it is a website that tells you how many words you type per minute. Today my score was 67! Give it a try and reply to the thread to share.

    80 wpm for me! It was weird trying to do it because the words didn't follow any logical order for me, and it kept throwing me off.

    I was waiting to see how long it would be before I saw Eve recommended on TSR! She's brilliant for a lot of GCSE/AS stuff I finished my A levels this year and even I had a look at her stuff.

    I agree she is brilliant! I love that Eve refers to other youtube channels like Mr Bruff (another life saver).

    I really enjoy watching other people being productive on youtube while being unproductive (does that make sense?)

    HOLIDAY! I'm currently away on holiday so apologies for inactivity.

    So far all is swell- lots of pain but has been lovely to catch-up with family.

    As for productivity... I've been chillaxing and reading. I've really been enjoying Macbeth!

    Hope you are great summer!

    Have you ever hear drunk of Lovely Bones?

    My Aunt Noreen visited the other day and kindly lent me the book...it's really good! It's about a fourteen year old girl who was murdered and how from heaven, she is watching them solve the murder case and witnessing how others are reacting to her death.

    Highly recommend it! I started reading earlier and I'm curently on chapter 8.

    ( I wrote this the other day, but it didn't post a single I don't have wifi..)

    I love to draw mandalas and thought I would share a link to a website which has a good article on how to draw them. I draw petal and circle based ones as well as colour in ones you often find in adult colouring books. They are fun and can look very impressive!
