This is terrific news. On the other hand, it was always my firm belief that mixing duty with pleasure brings the best results. For instance, I have managed to raise my boy`s motivation for study and learning by throwing him the best party ever, this year. It was a book party with all his friends. They also had video games on the menu, so it was fabulous.
