TOOLS FOR PRODUCTIVITY

I'm a bit of a completionist when it comes to movies and television, so I find it really useful to use this site to track what shows and movies I'm watching.

In addition to books, television, and classes I use Duolingo to refresh my languages and learn new ones when traveling.
