[BAWD #46] Beginner Learning Curriculums

Hello there 👋🏾,

I trust you had a blissful week? Btw, here’s a friendly reminder that a lot of things are temporary these days. So whenever you get happiness, love, people, etc., enjoy the moment, cherish those moments, and live heartily. Work towards the future but live in the moment; these moments can be gone soon and fast.
