I’ll have just turned 36 when I sit L2 in June.  I’ve got a 7 week old and a 2 year old. 

i turned japanese when i sat for the exam..i am really turning japanese


You must be the square root of two cause i feel irrational around you

I was 25. I’ll be 26 by the time I take L3. I would have failed L2 on my first try if I had children.

I’ll be 22 when sitting the upcoming level 2 exam this June

I was 33 and father of a 6 year old :)

Generally I should be asking my son to study, in my house last year it was the other way round cool

Best regards,


28 when i take L2. Nil children (that I know of)

I started growing hair in strange places and developed this weird urge to sniff people’s butts. I also became easily excited and distracted by small animals like squirrels, but this might be unrelated.
