Study Strategy

Looks like I’ve made it to my third post of the week. I hope people actually read my previous posts since I churn out so many so quickly. Anyways, this time it looks like I’ll be talking about normal stuff (or maybe not). I don’t really have a set way of studying. For vocab, I …

My Interests
