    Besides English, how many foreign languages do you already know how to speak, read, write, and/or understand? Also, which is your favorite language (if you have one), and why?

    Didn’t get full marks this time. Dunno how much it was out of. One of the graders was terrible!

And he also said can’t understand...

    I was tanking the Art of War yesterday and today, and it was hard!!! The book is in traditional Chinese.

    My mum told me the queue to see the coffin was 1 hour long, so I went there. It turned into a 8 hour queue, so I noped out of there 2 hours in. I’m burnt anyway. I never wanted to go see the coffin because it’s just a box, and it’s a waste of time. I told my mum, look, if he’s here now, he’ll be...
