Nice list, thanks for sharing, really appreciate it. It is also would be great if you could make a list for education purposes, something that will help to write me an essay for college. It's pretty difficult to try to write an essay without any help from outside, so I have to ask for help with it. Thanks for understanding, best wishes. Waiting for your next lists.
