Hello my dear readers! No matter how much I wanted the previous post to be the last in 2021, I still desire to share something new with you. I finally started reading the book I’ve been longing to read for a long time! Actually I’ve planned to do it a…

Today I started my reflexion, writing down the events that happened during this year and summing up the knowledge that I obtained. So far I can say that the second half of the year has been so refreshing, so harmonic and even the best out of other years. You may…

Hello! While I have time I decided to write a post as a way of “taking a rest” from our teaching practice documents that we have to submit this week.

So, here are new words from my memrise “Hard Words for GRE” course:

  • complaisance — compliance, obedience (willingness to please…

Hello there! Here is my report on Memrise marathon. >_<

Let me share some new words with you! (as there were also not really hard words, I’ve chosen only those which were completely new for me)

  • facetious — flippant, frivolous (not serious about a serious subject, in an attempt to be funny or to appear clever)
  • formidable — arduous, uphill, daunting (causing you to have fear or respect for something or someone because that thing or person is large, powerful, or difficult)
  • verisimilitude — realism
  • succor — abet (help given to someone, especially someone who is suffering or in need)
  • surfeit — excess, surplus (an amount that is too large, or is more than is needed)

And here is the screenshot with my results. (I really liked this new style after I opened Memrise in GoogleChrome)

Thank you for your attention!

Looking back at my previous posts, I feel the need to explain my feelings to you. The description of my condition in the headline of the 1st post now seems so shallow and plain, because only now I understand that even then, I already started understanding and realizing how much…

It feels so sad and disappointing…I didn’t expect it to be so hard to combine my regular schedule with teaching at school. I feel not even exhausted, but just with no energy left. It was hard for me to even do these three tasks on my schedule (Memrise, PR and…

Hello everyone! Today is day 24 and I’d like to talk to you about the next chapter “Dangers and Precautions” that I’ve read and a little bit about The polygraph or lie detector as we’re used to calling it.

At first, the chapter about dangers and precautions is mostly about…


I’m getting used to practicing memrise everyday. To my surprise I discovered the “Streak Clock” but unfortunately only a week ago. So it says now that I’m on my 7th day (as you can see below on my screenshots), but as I’ve been keeping track of my marathon on my own, it’s okay.
