tl;dr Wanting to help, tell me how :)

Xubuntu 14.04 user here using it on an (about 10-year-)old laptop with a
1.5GHz Intel Pentium M processor and 1GB RAM. Want to help with the Xubuntu
community in any way possible, I don't have particularly much time as I am
doing my GCSEs atm but I do have SOME time and would like to get involved.

I have submitted various bug reports before and helped maintain some bug
reports on Launchpad <https://launchpad.net/~ads20000> and I am Level 11 at
German on Duolingo <https://www.duolingo.com/Ads20000> as well as getting a
B so far in my German GCSE (so I might be able to help a little with German
translations). I can't program particularly well as my school teaches QB64
and that is useful for pretty much nothing. I tried learning a bit of
JavaScript (36%) and Python (20%) on
CodeCademy<http://www.codecademy.com/bitace69829>but didn't get
particularly far as you can see but if there is a project
that I could help with just with CodeCademy skills then I could finish the
relevant course and help out (it would motivate me). [I did the one star
tasks on CodeCombat as well although I lost my account details so I need to
redo them at some point]

I can write English fairly well ( see my
website<http://fossreviews.wordpress.com/>which I haven't been keeping
updated very well :/ ) and can do some basic
command-line tasks thanks to Googling including compiling programs and
running them. I have tried my hand at packaging (using the WebUpd8
packaging guide<http://www.webupd8.org/2010/01/how-to-create-deb-package-ubuntu-debian.html>)
but I haven't been successful yet.

Thanks for reading,
Xubuntu 14.04 user
