    Haha, it's the famous counting rhyme where you usually pick someone for a game. Can't believe you haven't heard it before !

    I see. So where are you from?
    You're right.

    I've become seriously too lazy recently. It's not the best time for that considering my interview is next week.

    I know where Armenia is. Back at home, I have some neighbours from Armenia. I quite like the skin colour of Armenian people.
    Looks like most of Oxbridge interviews are happening this week. But that is good because then you can really enjoy Christmas (unless you extensively think about the result.)
    I just can't wait to go home after 6 weeks here.

    yes! this is what i was hoping for aswell, an A*AA Bath firm and an AAA Nottingham insurance would be near enough perfect!
    Just curious, but what makes you choose Bath over Nottingham as a university? I've currently got an unconditional from Bath (Gap Year), but would personally firm Nottingham.

    Rare for people to know where Armenians situated haha, and yes I get complimented on my skin colour a lot!
    Enjoy Christmas why have you stayed 6 weeks though?

    I had to learn about all continents before and although I suck at Geography and maps, I know the basics.

    Thanks. Well, it is 6 weeks at the end of next week and that is how long this term is in my school. (I always go home for half terms and holidays.)

    I probably haven't said that to you so good luck with preparation and your Oxford interview!

    Judging from your name I thought you were Spanish/Italian ha! But the skin tone is similar - i.e :Mediterran type, a lot of other Middle Eastern(including me) & Central Asian nations are of similar skin, and same ancestory. tbh i find the nagorno-karabakh conflict very upsetting and i personally empathise with both sides (don't kill me)

    it's primarily the placement year they offer. what's more as a city Bath is a lot nicer than Nottingham i think, that said Nottingham does have the capital FM arena and Trent Bridge cricket ground, so it is hard haha.

    But yeah its mainly the placement year that Bath offer, as an employment opportunity that's something i can't really afford to miss!

    My names of Italian decent yes, everyone assumes I'm Italian cause of my looks aswell aha. Which country are you from may I ask ?
    The conflict for that Karabakh is upsetting to me aswell. Some of the stories I've heard about members of my family in last two decades even, left with only candle light cause of Turks cutting gas-line pipes and energy supplies upsets me. Studying Economics made me realise about the economic impacts of the conflict aswell, Armenia's narrow export base (due to the conflict with Turkey and Azerbaijan) and it's geographic isolation is a holding the potential for further Economic growth back.. Wish the conflict would end but it's not so simple, and you'll know if you have a knowledge of the history for the land.. Which I get the impression you do.

    Afghanistan. Unfortunately, Afghanistan and Turkey maintain one of the strongest relationship, unlike Turkey-Armenia. Yes, many think I am Spanish and Italian because of my complexion, more realistically they also think of me as Turkish because I go to Istanbul every year BTW, are you related to the Kardashian?!?!
