Spring Fever.

I think February is a sucky month. It's the coldest month and it seems to take forever even though it's also the shortest month! Since January my life has been filled with extremely cold weather, a lot of death (I've been to 3 funerals) and My Brother left for the Army. So even though I'm generally a lover of all things winter, I am so ready for spring. I'm done with wearing coats and scarves and having to decide which uncomfortable boots I'm going to wear. Instead I want to be wearing flip-flops and pretty dresses!!

Spring is one of my favourite times of year because days slowly get longer and sunsets start to become more prominent. My favourite things to do include, watching airplanes fly and watching the sun set. I'm a pretty simple bean.

Let's talk technology!

Recently I've come across what I believe to be my favourite app. I'm not really one for apps because I'm a little ADD and I get bored of them easily. I have all of the standard ones, Pinterest, Candy Crush, Flappy bird... but I don't usually go for anything else. I decided I wanted to learn a language (I decide this all the time and never follow through) so I went to the app store and I searched. I came across an app called Duolingo; looks like this:

It was free so I downloaded it! and then I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I download a lot of apps and 3 minutes later I delete them because they suck.
I decided to go with French because I already had a basic knowledge of it and my parents speak French. It's extremely user friendly and there's a little 'coach' that sends you notifications and/or emails when you haven't been on yet that day, to keep you on track. I've been on track since I downloaded it 8 days ago.

Basically, I love it and I would go into greater detail but I feel like you should just all go check it out for yourselves. Hopefully soon I'll be able to write a whole blog post in French!
