"To finish the moment, to find the journey’s end in every step of the road, to live the greatest number of good hours, is wisdom....Since our office is with moments, let us husband them."

Who doesn't love free rice?


A couple of my friends have mentioned this website on their blogs, and I've also read about it on other random blogs so I finally checked it out today. It's completely addicting. And that's such a good thing. FreeRice.com is a free vocabularly builder for English. The catch, if you can even call it that, is for every correctly answered question 20 grains of rice is donated to those in poverty. For free! The level of the vocabulary is adaptive so there is no reason not to do it, whether you're in 2nd grade or a Ph.D. I've already wasted half an hour there today. I highly suggest you do the same.

Daniel - I found the free rice site the day before your posting. It's truly addicting! Hope your last few days abroad are great. I've enjoyed following your blog. Hope you have an easy trip home. We'll see you New Year's Eve. Love, Aunt Ellen

Free Rice...yeah, it's addicting and fantastic. And whenever I miss points, I seem to always have to build up and get at least to the next level. haha. Thankfully this just distracts me from my work instead of finals. :-)
