    I'm generally quite good at learning languages as I find vocab and grammar easy to pick up, but yeah, my pronunciation is a bit dodgy; people from Fu Zhou also have dodgy pronunciations in Mandarin too (I've lived there for like 6 years since birth, haven't been back since). Also, I am completely the wrong person to ask about politics
    Mmm... considering Fuzhou is in Fujian, that's pretty provincial, so I probably wouldn't understand a amalgamation of sounds expressed .. and it's fair not to know anything about politics... but I did hear that Abott was going to destroy the Great Barrier Reef or something...

    I use Fuzhou and Fujian interchangeably, I can never remember which one is in which, but I'm talking about the general area :lol: Politics just bores me :dontknow:

    I can't imagine myself moving back to Aus, but I've still got my citizenship in case I ever need to :lol:

    This is no way related to any conversation, but out of boredom I'm trying to learn some latin for no reason at all however these conjugations and declensions (whatever that even means) are so hard to remember.

    EDIT: and to answer the previous question, quite lame but this...

    Ahh Latin. Quite fun. For some reason, I found the endings in Latin harder to memorise than the ones in French/Spanish. Tbh, I've forgotten most of them so I'm revising them this Christmas :lol:

    Goodbye room.

    Cambridge are so sneaky with their room layouts. They have all the plugs and stuff on the opposite side of the room to the beds.

    Clever indeed...

    Yup, I'm going to party so hard after I finish those first two days, though my hand may be dead :lol: Actually, probably not because I then have Physics 2 days later :emo::lol: Physics isn't too bad though, Maths is definitely the hardest for me by a long shot. I'm just glad my final exam is a calculus paper :lol:

    :lol: are you going to be on exam leave by then?
    I hope so, it's quite odd for an A2 exam to be so early in May but I should do well in it seeing as I have nothing else to worry about around that time
