Well, it is not too far from the truth, lol. But there is a much better side; kind, nice, polite, funny people, fun contests, concerts, amusement parks, fairs, beaches, parties, clubs, bars with great crowds, and a lot of outdoorsy stuff!
Besides time away from school, I advanced a little further in Martial Arts. I'm one belt away from my Black Belt in Karate, and two away in TKD. I learned how to cook healthy stuff (I can actually make a healthy cheeseburger, I'm not joking), which is pretty useful since I like junk food and stuff xD. So yeah, pretty good stuff.
