Writing

I study phonics with Lily and we both dislike phonetics. It’s hard for me study this from the beginning like child. But I hope after learning this my reading skills can be average.
These days Shanghai’s weather are great. But I stay at home when day off. I’m definitely a couch potato. Eating snacks and watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel having a good time. It’s a wonderful teleplay and they put one season out. You don’t need wait a week for one episode. You can finish the season one day.
