This is Dave. He's trying to learn a language the traditional way. However, it only teaches him boring grammar and phrases he'd never use. This is Cindy. She's learning a language with FluentU. It teaches her through real world content like music videos,-

Yeah, I left for a little bit of time.
Long story short, someone was telling lies on here(fortunately I'm not gullible because I have an IQ of 140) and I told her to stop but she got her brother to write two really nasty messages to shut me up and he started harassing me, treating me like some bully or punk(which I'm certainly not either of those). I felt like leaving and I was far too scared to come back here because I thought this situation was gonna be brought up again. I also found it very difficult to sleep because it was the only thing on my mind.
For everyone's information, I am a kind person and I am very polite but I can get annoyed quite easily. I am NOT a bully, I just have a short temper. I don't need some idiot with zero manners and zero common sense telling me how to be a good person. I already know how to be one.
Anyway, I hope we can move on from this.
What's happening now?
I'm trying to get on the whitelist. Not much to say about this. Apparently, there are people who can contact elder mods, so that's cool, ig.
Ramadan has been going quite well for me. I'm surprised that I'm not craving food every 5 minutes because I relied a lot on food during lockdown. The only thing I feel like when I'm fasting is a drink. Ramadan also makes you realise that you are very lucky with what you have unlike other people around the world who can't access food and drink like we can. It's sad that some people have to suffer just because of the greed of the superpowers(USA, France, etc).
I've also given up on learning Czech, not because it's too hard(I was actually finding it kinda easy), mainly because I am already learning two languages and I don't need to learn another one(once upon a time, I was actually learning about six languages at a time). I get stressed out if I learn too many languages.
Well, since I've given up on Czech, what language am I learning now?
It's been a very long time since I've revised my Korean and for some reason, I've been very eager to learn it again recently. I really love the script and the sound of the language so that's probably what motivated me.
As well as revising, I also wanna improve my listening skills too since they are terrible! I remember that I was watching a video in Korean and during the whole 10 minutes, I could only recognise one word. Wow.
I don't think there's very much to say now.
I'll see you guys soon! I hope everyone has a nice day, peace! <3

I wanted to say that I'm sorry for posting that re-upload. That definitely wasn't a good move and it wasn't the right thing to do. I should've used kinder words instead and I should've written a post.
In case you're curious about the "go to hell" thing, here's the link: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/495031433/
Once I realised the whole singing thing was a lie, I got very angry and I got offended so that encouraged me to post the re-upload on Soundcloud and on NG.
Next time something like this happens again, I will try my best to refrain from frustration and I'll try to be much kinder than I was previously or maybe I just don't interfere with anything.
If you want to get sued and go to jail for about 10 years of your life, you do you. If you wanna get your 21 year old brother to DM me and defend yourself from me telling you about serious problems such as lying or copyright infringement, you do you. If you seriously wanna kill yourself even though I've encouraged you to live plenty of times, I'm not gonna be there any longer and you can do your own thing.
Anyone else who does this type of crap again, I don't care anymore. I just wanna have my own life without getting into any dumb controversies. I don't want people DMing me with really mean and intimidating things anymore. I don't wanna have to keep pushing people into the right direction whenever they re-upload some popular-ass song that was on the radio.
Doing this is much more stressful than I thought it would be but at the same time, I never saw it as a bed of roses.
I'll still be online and everything but if anyone does any stupid things like re-upload a pop song and lie that they made it, I'm no longer interfering.
Peace out and I hope you all have a nice day! <3

Yes, me. What's up?
I like my bed.
I've been too tired to do very much and I can't get out of my bed because I feel tired and a little lazy. I don't get up until at least 10:30(I wake up at 7am).
Ramadan is about to start in a couple days(depends when your reading this though). As much as I'm excited to start fasting, I don't think it's gonna be easy for me because food and drink has been one of the only ways to keep me from being bored during lockdown.
Last year when I was fasting, I barely slept before I had to wake up at 2-3am to eat so when I went back to sleep, I was waking up at 12pm instead.
Although it was very horrible for my sleep routine, at least I skipped about half the day!
I think I might do the same thing this year, considering that I have literally nothing else to do.
Produce music? I don't have very much to motivate me. There's this song I keep coming back to then eventually shying away from. Make an animation? No matter how much time you pour into your cartoon, people will still blam it without giving any real feedback to you.
I'm gonna stop writing because I'm tired. See y'all soon!

Mixed feelings, to be honest.
Let's begin with the good news first:
My Czech has been doing ok so far. Nothing seems too difficult yet. I had to conjugate a little(depending on masculine, feminine and neuter). It wasn't hard at all! The only thing I'm having difficulties with is the flexible word order Czech has. It is SVO but by the looks of it, it can change to OVS. I've gotten used to harder things though so hopefully comprehending what people say or what the text-to-speech says won't be too much of a pain in the ass. I've been getting hang of the alphabet. The only letter I'm struggling with is ř(I'm guessing it's kinda like the "r" in Chinese).
Not much has happened in my half term for it to be any exciting. I went to the mall only to find that half of the shops were closed(however the dining services were doing takeaway) and a 6-month old k-pop song was still being played on radio(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umDr0mPuyQc). Despite all of that, going there was pretty fun. It's nice to go and see this nostalgic place sometimes.
Ramadan is coming soon and I'm quite excited to start fasting! Unlike previous years(the time I was dombass), I'm gonna learn more about my religion and take an interest in worshipping.
That's all of the good news. The bad news:
As much as I'm having fun doing what I'm doing, I'm also annoyed as crap that I can't go where I'd usually like to go. I can't have too much fun in the half-term because pretty much everything is shut. The only places I can go are the groceries, school and back home. Maybe we go somewhere else if everyone in my household feels like doing so.
The stuff said about global warming, overpopulation and extinction of fish is really devastating too and it's only now that I'm getting worried. I had a dream where these problems were getting very serious. No one is gonna be able to stop these problems in time!
I mean, how much cow farms are you gonna need? Plenty of trees are just being cut down unnecessarily!
Do we have to eat so much beef? I only eat meat or fish once a week!
Many people blame the plastic straws for the polluted ocean situation but half of it is gear from the fishermen! Don't get me wrong though, plastic straws are still a massive problem.
There's even an island called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and they named it like it was some sort of country!
Look at the amount of poor countries there are! No one is giving any money to them and if countries like the superpowers(US, China, France, etc) are doing so, it's only a joke. They're lying. They're probably doing something like taking the oil or stealing the goods. They will never help the people in need.
Anyway, you guys get why I'm half happy, half upset. Just like everyone else experiencing lockdown, my emotions are pretty much an extremely long rollercoaster. It goes up, it goes down. There might be a turning point, you might be able to solve your own problems. I know, it's very complex.
See y'all later.
