Recycling paper at home is gathering your used paper, turning them into pulp, and drying them to make a new piece of useable paper. It has recently become popular, many people on the internet giving it a go themselves. It is a great activity to try especially during the quarantine.

Does homework really benefit the students? One great and known example is the schools in Finland. Schools in Finland are known for having little homework, long holidays, and overall spending lesser time in school but still ending high up on the global rankings.

What is the divergent series about?

For those of you who haven't read the dystopian divergent series by Veronica Roth is, it’s about a girl called Tris (Beatrice Prior) who lived in Chicago, a city surrounded by walls. Chicago was divided into five factions, Dauntless, Erudite, Amity, Candor, and Abnegation, which each represented different characteristics and purposes.
