    Aye, good to know that it was good! Thanks for the wishes! It's great speaking to you, by the way :D All my exams went well except for physics, and another series of exams will begin from the 28th.

    It wasn't bad, but it wasn't special either. I was busy studying and got some time to play Golden Sun: The Lost Age. (If I'd have my 3ds, I'd have continued the ORAS Nuzlocke) My aunt is going to stay with us for a week, so we'll have a pleasant time. Nothing else.

    Good luck on the testing, I'm sure you'll be okay. Christmas was nice. How was it for you if you don't mind me asking?

    Thanks for the wishes! Except for the physics test, all of them went well. And completely being dependent on tests does hurt, it was that way for us last year, but they changes it to homework plus tests this time around.

    We got two days off for Christmas, after which testing will resume again. And then the external examiners (this from other schools) will evaluate our practical skills, so I expect January to be a tight month.

    Have you got any plans for this Christmas?

    When I mention breaks, I mean we do get Christmas and Spring, as well as Thanksgiving. Aside from that, it's nonstop from the start of the semester until the end. Our school usually doesn't even close for many federal holidays, which is strange.

    That was one of the issues. We had a very loose outline to study from, but it wasn't helping me on the tests. Any sort of practice would have helped, including homework. Unfortunately we didn't get homework either, so everything counted on those tests.

    I can't remember when I joined. It feels like it's been forever. I'm pretty sure I joined the Social Media Team early this year, maybe February...I just checked and it was January 27th. Nearly a year.

    Also I wish you the best on the testing. I'm glad you get preparation.

    Oh and don't stress over responding late. There's not a hurry or anything, just go ahead and respond when you feel like it.

    Soooorrrry for the late response! It hurts to know you guys don't have breaks :( But you know where you went wrong, which is a positive part of it. We've got practice test upcoming, which are like the buffed up versions of actual finals. so we prepare better. I know you're not hurt, but I believe if you overthink stuff you mightn't feel better. Wonder if it would be nice if you could do those questions where you went wrong again for practice...

    When did you join the Social Media team, by the way?

    I'm not too hurt by it. I don't like the thought of failing, but there's not much else I could have done.

    Breaks are difficult in college since all the assignments come in such a rapid succession. I know where it went wrong. I messed up a test early and it became impossible to fix my grade. We had under 6 graded assignments for the class, so when I failed the first big test my grade was already beyond repair.

    My English class was the opposite. We were getting so many essays and reading assignments, I neglected that other class. And I underestimated how difficult the tests would be in there.

    I understand, I faced the same problem last year :( But let's hope to become stronger by learning from our mistakes. A burden will be lifted, as you said. Don't forget to take breaks, though.

    It probably didn't go well, but I tried my best. Easily the hardest class I've ever been in since everything is almost 100% unfamiliar to me.

    Nice timing! Now then, hope you are full of confidence for the exams as well! I will check out Chael Sonnen, now that you say he’s hilarious, hehe.

    One of his quotes was "I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was." So he wasn't short of confidence. But honestly, while he was probably the best at talking he isn't my favorite to listen to. My favorite is Chael Sonnen. I just think he's hilarious. But yes Tyson literally took a piece of his ear from the bite. Videos surface around of it online, though I've seen it and it's just as gross as it sounds.

    For me, I played Gen 3 in very early childhood. By that, I mean when I was about 4 years old. Despite getting into Pokemon early, my interest fell off. So I missed out on gens 4 and 5, and didn't get back into it until the Hoenn remakes. Which is why I like gen 6 so much, it revived my interest in the franchise. I hope they don't change Barry too much. I'd worry they might turn him into one of those rivals without a personality.

    Finals tomorrow (Unfortunately). Then more next week. I guess a weight will be lifted when they end.

    Oh and thanks for adding me. It was funny timing since I was about to do it the other night, but put it off until the next day. Only to find you added me first.

    Aw yeah, a one minute video! I'llcheck it out, thanks :D I really enjoyed the last video, especially the first line and then how Ali rants and keeps on going with those powerful talks. I would say those were more out of self-confidence than anything! Tyson bit Evander's ear, oh my, that's brutal O_O

    I started in Sinnoh with Pearl version in 2008. Hence Sinnoh's got a sof spot for me :p But I hope the remakes are made in a good manner. They should give the games some justice, and of course do something about Barry....
    What else? How are the final preps going?

    An interesting question I commonly see come up is "Who would win, Mike Tyson or Muhammad Ali". I don't think Tyson would be able to stay with him mentally. Ali loved taunting and flaunting around. Tyson relied on ending fights quickly, and grew frustrated when he couldn't do that. For example, when Mike Tyson fought Evander Holyfield, Tyson grew frustrated and bit his ear, getting himself disqualified. Ali thrived on long fights, and many of them went into rounds 9 and 10. So unless Tyson could take him out early I don't see him faring well.

    There was a 9 minute video, but I shared a shorter one just in case you may have not had time. Here it is though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNOftSgVUnY

    And nope, Gen 2 was not my first. I started with Gen 3. In general Johto Pokemon are some of my favorites, and I like the soundtrack and post game. I also like the art style the most out of every generation. Out of curiosity which was the first game you played?

    I know of Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather through news! And the video you linked, hoho, if I was going to be his next opponent and he says something like "I'm coming to get you!" I would shiver... And the way he rhymes his phrases is so cool! Aww, the video was just 3 minutes?

    Hmm, I can totally understand. Gen 4 was too slow, and nostalgia won't blind me. But Gen 2 was epic and it still has the best postgame! Was it your first game?

    I know Cricket, but not Kabaddi.

    For boxing, the greatest in history is considered Muhammad Ali. It's almost undisputed. He was also a very vocal person, which is why people probably find him appealing. For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsAC4lhbE0g. He's the #1 figure of the sport. Every great boxer is compared to him, and in most boxing discussions his name is usually mentioned in some form.

    Other than him, other great boxers were George Foreman, Larry Holmes, Sugar Ray Leonard, Joe Fraizer, and Mike Tyson, and Floyd Mayweather. That last name is not popular. However he has a perfect 50-0 record; and despite how he acts as a person he's undeniably great at the sport.

    I'm not sure if I have a favorite Pokemon game because I like every single one of them. In terms of generations I would put them from favorite to least: 2, 3, 6, 7, 1,5,4. There isn't anything wrong with 4 and 5, but I didn't play them until more recently and my experiences are limited.

    Yes, I loved Alola. I thought the characters were very appealing and I liked playing a Pokemon game that tried to put an emphasis on story as a change of pace. I understand Black/White did this, but not to the same extent.
