That sounds nice, so you're planning on moving on to another country? Nice to hear you're getting good grades and I hope you enjoy studying even if it takes a lot of work.
Indeed, social life is very important, one of the most important things in life if you ask me. That's good that you make sure you still have a social life and you meet your friends.
I didn't pass the entrance exams for places I tried to get into so I'm taking a gap year. But it's actually quite nice to have a gap year. I'm studying in "open university" (kind of like university, but everyone can study there without anything entrance exams). Almost everything about it is studying in home, though, so I still live with my parents this year.
Yes they were, we used to be awesome with our runthroughs together... shame it's stopped to be honest. But I don't know how often Drummerdude posts; think he's like us and just isn't as interested anymore. It's become the norm now - it seems most of the forums have just stopped caring about Pokemon now.
I just got another Noibat. This is much better (despite being lv1) because it knows Psychic, Shadow Ball, Toxic, and Roost. Unfortunately I already have a Noibat so I'm trading it away. Maybe you'll get it.
