SNEW (Something New Every Week) 04 July

SNEW – Something New Every Week > this is a particular post that I would like to share with everyone, I believe that learning is never-ending and if we could learn something new Every Day > It would be the best but sometimes we would be too busy to take down what we have learned for the day or simply forget about it when the situation is over.
