You should definitely visit Cologne someday, its a really nice city and there is a lot to see and do
Haha what a coincidence! Yeah we always have some awesome food on the table, that's a blessing :3
I've been to some places: I've already told you a spent a year in the US, i've been to many european countries, like England, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Poland, Greece...me and my family like to travel a lot, and we spent every summer in Spain since my Grandma lives there :3
How about you, do you travel a lot?
That's so cool i always wanted to visit Canada. It's supposed to be really nice and pretty there and (this might just be a stereotype) people are supposed to be extremely nice. That's the biggest advantage about Europe, you can easily visit so many different countries!
I Live in Cologne, you might have heard of it, it's a pretty big city. I've lived here all my life, but I'm actually half-spanish and half-italian thanks to my parents
Well, highschool in Germany used to go up to year 13, now they changed it to 12. You can actually quit school after finishing 10th grade and/or turning 16, after that you can start something like an apprenticeship. This means you apply directly to a concern or a company, and they teach you a job, which is pretty much hands-on and takes places both at the concern and at a special school. I guess this is something other countries don't exploit as much, in germany it's a pretty common thing to do.
If you do finish highschool though, you usually go to University, where you can study all the other stuff.
I'm sorry if i'm confusing you with this
Yeah college in Canada is completely different than College in the UK. Canadian highschool goes up to year 12. I think UK goes up to year 10 and then you take an optional 2 years of college, then uni. In Canada, college is basically on par with Uni, only college is for things more hands-on (example, if you want to be an artist, you go to college, but if you want to be an art historian, you go to Uni.)
Heeey there! i thought you would never get back to me
I'm doing general courses for now, later on you get to pick a specialty...but i really don't know yet what i want to do, lucky enough i still have plenty of time to decide :3 Yeah I'm from germany, our school system is pretty "unique" i guess, but i think you could compare it to Canada or the UK, definitely not the US. I spent a year there as an exchange student, it's a completely different thing. This only counts for High-School though, once you enter college, it's pretty much the same as in any other european country
Yeah :3 It is! And yeah, that's understandable, everyone gets busy! :3 And that's cool, so are you doing like general courses? Or gonna get an associate's degree and then move onto something more specific?
You are from Germany right? Is the school system more like the UK, US, or Canada or do you not really know?
Aw i see, that's at least as good as a reason to stay around =)
Yeah I'm doing a challenge right now, and it's been a blast so far. Sometimes i'm busy though and i don't get to play for a few days, but oh well. I'm currently a college student and i haven't quite figured out yet what i want to do in the future, but i hope i'll find out along the way :3
Yeah! Though to be honest, I dont go into the pokemon sections very often anymore. I have a lot of old (and new) friends here though and I really like the community so I stayed. :3 And yeah the challenge section is great! I never have that much time or dedication though haha!
And yeah, thanks! Worked hard to get it but now I really enjoy what I do! What do you do/ want to do? :3
I admire you for sticking to an interest like Pokemon for all these years!! Wish i had found this site waaay sooner. I haven't really been much on the OVP and OC section, but i'm trying them out :3
I enjoy the challenges section a lot, it's a good excuse to replay all the games one more time! and i like to check out the Pokemon X/Y speculations from time to time, see what other people think.
I just checked your "About me" page and WOW how cool is your job?!
Yeah an oldie here! I really like OVP and OC! (Other Voting Polls and Other Chat.) :3 General Entertainment is also cool. I never go into the rom hacking or emulation section because I have no clue how to do that! I'm glad you're liking it! Have a fav section yet?
