    Regarding countries, Iv'e been to England, Scotland, Wales, France, Spain, Germany, Belgium, and the US (Georgia). I've also driven through Holland and Luxembourg. My family mainly holidays in the UK as my mum can't deal with planes so most of the times I've been abroad it's been with my school.

    Also, it's ocurred to me that I haven't yet mentioned a single thing about my actual studentness so....I'm starting a 3/4 year Primary Teaching Degree at St. Mary's University College, Twickenham in September. I've spent the last two years doing a Level 3 Childcare and Education course at the local college.....it was totally lame but something I had to do to be able to get into uni. Before that I was doing A Levels at the sixth form of my secondary school but I left because I just couldn't stand either the school or A Levels anymore. >< But I'm feeling confident about the future now.

    Yeah, our band is changed too. We feel excited because for the past 2 years we've only come home with "participation" awards. lol.

    Our XC team is gonna take the state by storm this year. Through Jr. High and my freshman year, we were absolute ****, but last year we decided we wanted to be good, so our guys did the best in our schools history and got 5th in state. This year, our Junior class is stacked with me and a few other guys, and we plan on trophying this year

    I know a good Chinese noodle shop by Nintendo World, just across the street and down the slope a little, very clean and they have some of the best duck outside of Chinatown.

    If you do go there, I suggest going to Rockefeller Center which is right next door to Nintendo World, and underneath is a underground mall with a good amount of stores. The lego store is also nearby and there's always the giant Christmas tree.

    You can also try the GIANT Toys R Us too in Times square, thing's so big you can fit a ferris wheel inside of it which it does have and operates, though you do have to pay, though the main problem is that it's often very crowded. There's also the M&M store with a BUNCH of M&Ms and M&M merchandise.

    My year is ok, so far. I'm retaking some courses to get better grade for the RN program. I have friends from previous semesters in them. The only thing bad is that I can man up and ask this cute girl I sit next to in speech for her number.

    Just do it. If you don't, you'll regret it. If you do, you MIGHT regret it, but you MIGHT not. Statistically, you should go for it for the lowest chance of regret.

    On the topic of countries, I've been to England (duh), Scotland, Wales, South Korea (again, duh), China, Thailand, Singapore, France, Spain, Holland, Belgium, Italy, USA, and Canada (Vatican City, too, if it counts). I really want to go to Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and Brazil when I get the chance.

    School starts in three and a half weeks... And I have no idea how I should spend it (apart from studying) after the Olympics end. *headdesk* Any suggestions?

    Sigh... Two more weeks to go before school starts. Got my books today so I can start preparing a little before the 20th.

    I haven't been to Japan for more than a flight transfer, and I'm Japanese, so I really want to go there. o:
    I've only stepped foot on two continents.

    As for what to do for three weeks, I don't know... play Pokémon?

    You guys can set up your lockers before school actually starts? I may be weird for thinking this, but that actually seems pretty cool. (:
    And you have a Wal-Mart near your school? There aren't any Targets or Wal-Marts in the city where I live, if I remember correctly.

    M&M's stores are epic! There's one in leicester square, I've been.
    I'll need to write that all down, in case we go this summer. Hopefully we've got a place to stay as friends live in Greenwich (in new York).
    An underground mall, interesting.

    You've been to tonnes of places! What I would give to be you! Went to the athletics at the Olympics last night and saw Dai Greene and Usain bolt! What tickets did you get?
    As for what to do you can lay in bed and be sick like me. Or, see some friends, go out to places, go shopping, since your in London you can go to museums, the science museum is good. And go and look at all the flags of the world hung up on regent street, then there's an Olympic shop on the top floor of John Lewis on oxford street.

    Ooh, I know that one! I haven't actually been inside myself, but some of my friends have, and apparently it's a cool place. What's it like in there?

    Well, let's start with the cons. Everything is a total rip off price. Its really hot and they pump music really loud over load speakers. Really crowded. Now the pros: it has some really cool merchandise and dome cool things to take photos of. Of course, lots of chocolate. Pick n mix M&M color tubes. Some type of color scheme M&M in shaped plastic cases (like I got a star shaped one with red white and blue M&Ms. So it's quite cool. It's like your run of the mill fan shop, if you've been in the London 2012 megastore, it's like that but without the ques to get in.

    Do you battle Pokémon competitively? If not you may want to start that, as it takes a while to build a team and learn all the stuff... if so, make a new team?

    I went to school today for book pickups, and boy did I get pissed off. They moved everyones locker. This is the first time my school does this. They usually just give you a locker your freshman year and its yours until you graduate. A janitor even told me that it was the principles idea and that its pointless. I'm pissed off. My locker used to be upstairs and now its in the basement. -___-

    Also I got my Chromebook today, and I was playing around with it. Its pretty badass. Thats the best thing the school did so far, give everyone a laptop for their High School career.

    Don't forget to mention that they have M&Ms you don't usually find normally and they show off some of their new M&M products. I believe when I last went, they were showing us the coconut ones, though t could have been Pina colada.

    And you should expect things to be overpriced, it's NYC for crying out loud.

    Also, I was in Beijing in 08 during the Olympics and my grandparent's apartment was basically a hop, skip, and a jump away from the main Olympic venue. Though I got to see some track and field, beach volleyball, rowing, and badminton while I was there. So crowded and hot though! Thank god for subways.

    Also, if you're ever in Beijing, I recommend you go to the Hong Qiao pearl market, which is basically a giant bazaar. It's right across the street from a tourist hot spot and you can be reached by Subway. They have pearls, clothing, accessories, toys, videogames and videogame systems, though I believe they are pirated, but yeah, a lot of cool stuff.

    And on a side note, Beijing has great street food, though you need to be out on the streets early in the morning, or late at night after it gets dark. Don't plan on driving there either, even the most seasoned drivers have a hard time. There's a lot of horn hoking, though unlike the American horn honk which is the equivalent of "**** you!" China's are less aggressive, though not as much, but the drivers are aggressive in return. So if road tests wanted to be hard, they would have you test in China, but mainly urban areas in Beijing.

    Move in to college next week... Trying to do a few breeze through on my past courses in preparation for my new classes.. Hopefully the weekend before classes start lets me refresh my mind. Work keeps getting in the way though.
    Currently going through the 5 main regions.

    I've been to the Hong Qiao Market before! Though the one time I was forced there, my grandma dragged me there when I was like six.

    They've sold legitimate video games before there, even ones from the US, which amazes me. I've never bought anything at that Market, but it's still a pretty nice place.

    And talking about pińa colada makes me want some. NOW.

    I feel bad now because I haven't traveled in like, ever. The farthest I went was Georgia and Alabama. Oh well. I haven't been much of one to leave my surroundings.

    I was talking about the one in London, since that's where I live and that's the one I've been to.
