An update on the magical happening that is my life.

Back on the blogging scene today, it’s been a while, so I thought I would pretentiously tell you all what's been going on as of late.
So I finished college and all my exams. I'm now enduring a painful wait till August where I will be receiving those all-important A-level results. Providing I get the grades, which are not too high, straight Cs, I will be attending the university of Portsmouth to study English and Creative writing. You can expect my first book in stalls in about 5 years :P But seriously, I do want to be a writer and actually 5 years sounds like a good goal. Of course, leaving college is a sad affair. Our leaver’s assembly was set up like a Diamond jubilee party, as it was the day before. A presentation of photos was shown and I appeared with a gross face, dressed up like a Zombie with someone dressed as E.T., I also got a mention from the Head boy who I shared a room with on the trip to Kenya, almost a year ago. I'm not sure I'm allowed to mention what Dan was specifically referring to here. The day ended with a BBQ and a line-up of a bouncy castle, gladiator bounce thing, bujiie cord bounce thing and bouncy slide, it was a wonderful day.
Of course I attended the prom, dressed up all dapper. It was held at this beautiful hotel, but I still wonder who goes on holiday to Yateley? By the end it was quite sad, many people I may never see again shared a tight and strong hug with me, something for me to remember them by I guess.
This Thursday just gone, I came up to Nottingham to accompany my all-time best friend Alex Bingley to a production of Avenue Q. I had previously heard a few songs from the play, but never brought myself to listen to the others in case I was ever to see it. I heard early this year they were on their farewell tour and then at Easter Alex expressed a wish that he could have seen it. I had a brain wave, and brought him a ticket for his 18th birthday, to which he was very pleased.
This week I have been staying at my Grandma and Granddad’s house for the first time. They cleared out my Dad's old bedroom for me and I was surprised to see how small it actually is. Growing up, I always thought there was a massive double bed in their but oh well, I'm comfortable.
So Black and White 2 are out in Japan, I've surprised myself and managed to not watch an entire play through of it... yet. Having not played a main series Pokémon game since Emerald, I am trying to recapture youthful excitement. I remember when me and my brother received Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire respectively. (Actually the three of us received them to share, but our parents didn't understand at the time that it is quite hard to Share a Pokémon game.) Well that was a great day; we knew nothing about those games, having only seen pictures of Groudon and Kyogre. When I got my first game, Pokémon Yellow, I had already seen my cousins play through Red and Blue and before I got Gold, I had seen all the generation 2 Pokémon. However this day was brilliant, we had never seen the starters before or any of the Hoenn Pokémon, first encountering Wurmple, Zigzagoon, etc. was so exciting for us. Haven't experienced that in a Pokémon game since discovering Serebii, YouTube and ultimately Bulbapedia. Back to Black 2 and though I haven't spoiled the appearance or plot of the game, I know roughly at what point Pokémon are available and have planned myself a nice team.
Emboar, Flame Charge, Brick Break, Stone Edge, Earthquake.
I used the other two in Black and White. I loved Serperior while not really digging Samurott. I usually live for speedy Pokémon so I'm using Flame Charge so Emboar can keep up.
Lucario, Aura Sphere, Flash Cannon, Dark Pulse, Dragon Pulse.
Wow. This is available before the first gym, I had originally planned to use Stoutland but forget that. Lucario has high speed which I love and his high offensive stat, which I always like with my speed. Though its physical power is great, its special is a little bit better so I'm using it as a special beast.
Whimsicott, Giga Drain, Shadow Ball, Psychic, Leech Seed.
I loved Lilligant in my Pokémon white and I think the even faster puff ball will become a favourite of mine.
Swanna, Surf, Ice Bam, Fly, Toxic.
Water/Flying is a type combination that I like. However, Pelipper sucks and Gyarados and Mantine can't learn Fly, now I finally get one and it’s a Swan, the great white bird of our monarchy.
Galvantula, Bug Buzz, Thunder, Energy Ball, Thunder Wave.
Electric types <3 Bug types <3 Oh my gosh, this is great. With the ability Compoudeyes, I can have the powerful Thunder with the accuracy of Thunderbolt, awesome!
Absol, Night Slash, Psycho Cut, Dig, Will-O-Wisp.
Let’s have Super Luck, Scope lens? Maybe I'll actually by some Dire Hits? I am hoping to sweep bosses with a Critical Hit machine :D
So there you go, I'll try and get back into blogging and you'll hopefully hear from me soon.
