EEEA? I'm sure you would have done a lot better than that, but I take your point, these wouldn't be your strongest choices.
C for the normal Maths and F for the harder one. (That's what double maths means, right?) I'm really bad at the things that I'm really bad at. Seriously.

I don't mind the economics. Macro is more interesting, but micro is easier to understand for someone like me. It makes more sense. I am a bit of a nerd, but not too much of a nerd.
Nerds rule the world. Just look at Zuckerberg and Bill Gates. Micro had too much maths so I didn't like it.

The choice was made for me.
How come?

If Javi doesn't take part, it will be quite an open contest this year.
I think you should take part. Javi's said he's not intending to defend his title.

I will have to see if I can make it. Also, I might be going to Eastbourne for one of the days instead (probably the Tyesday). I love that tournament so much. It's just sad that it takes place the same week as Wimbledon qualies.

I can relate to that. I am shocking at writing anything particularly wordy. Seriously, I'm really bad. So taking something like English or History was never on my mind, even though I love literature and am very keen on reading about historical happenings.

I'm not at all nerdy like that. Just I'm interested in different things to any standard boy of my age. Instead of fast cars, I like statistics and figures.

Micro also has all the individual markets in it, so it's tough to keep track of it, but I much prefer it to the more political macro side of economics.

Quote:

I was nominated by my school.

It's a competition for real men, not little babies. I doubt I will be nominated, though.

It's true. You know me too well. To be honest, it's quite concerning.

Hmm that sounds like a good tourney to attend. Is it far from London?

Really? Your posts don't reflect that at all. You actually write grammatically-sound sentences, for starters. But yeah, one should always play to his strengths.

That's very nerdy-cute.

Haha I liked the political side of macro.

No, it's a competition for the male posters of MTF. I will nominate you for sure.

An hour on the train from London. Not bad by any means.

My writing is awful. On here, I don't post anything more than a few paragraphs. When we get into essay territory, it gets messy.

Why am I not surprised? Oh yes, because there's no maths in politics.

I won't get close to winning. Hmmm, I'd have to think about it. I'm not totally ruling it out.

It just is. I don't like it when people know exactly what my intentions are, or what I'm thinking.

Do you have to write any essays for your subjects, like Econs?

So you'll join? You'll never know what will happen.

I think I know you maybe 5%, so your deep, dark secrets, desires and thoughts are safe with yourself.

Absolutely, and that's from my point of view. You're closer to Eastbourne in London. For me it would be a two hour journey to Eastbourne, but that's okay. Certainly do-able in a day. Especially as there are no night sessions. Play stops at around 7pm, so you'd be home by 9pm if all works out well, and for me it would be about 10:30pm.

Quote:

Just for economics. The less said about their quality, the better.

Quote:

I don't know you the way you know me. I was just relaying information you previously told me. However, you knew what I would do in a certain situation without having the information. It's slightly different, no?

Quote:

I was non-committal.

Good, because you don't even want to know my deep, dark thoughts. That reminds me, I'm glad I never told you the reasons that I made me want to be a good liar.

Sounds great. I'm so pleased that I have two tournaments to choose from. Coming to London was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

I find it hard to believe they're as bad as you claim.

Quote:

Yes, but it's really just a general vibe that I have. Maybe I'm just very good at reading people.


Quote:

You didn't rule it out completely. You didn't think it was a crazy idea.

Quote:

That reminds me, I need to badger you to tell me what they are. So what are they? tell me. Tell me now.

I went for tennis this morning and the courts were icy. Never seen icy courts before in my life. It was so slippery though. I couldn't do anything.

Also, I can't believe you're playing noddzy. I might vote for him since you seem to be winning by a large margin at the moment. I'll wait for the voting to unfold further before I decide. I hate having to choose between two posters that I really really really like.

He said he's going to lose in R2. What a humble boy our George is.

I'm surprised that you'd be willing to go to either considering a certain GOAT isn't playing.

Don't make me give you evidence of their poor quality!

At least you don't know those deep, dark secrets!

Quote:

I will consider doing it if I get plenty of nominations. I don't want to do it just off the back of one flippant nomination.

Quote:

They are secrets for a reason. You wouldn't like them one bit.

Find indoor courts, somewhere. That, or just wait until you get home.

Just vote for noddzy. Not meaning to sound arrogant, but there's no way I'm losing in this round. You can make it up to me by voting for me in round three, where I think I am certain to fall. All the boys love Sophitia, including me.

I have Sophitia, Eden & Pirata to make the quarter-finals. There's no chance for me!

Thanks for your support, though!

The good thing about his absence is that I get to concentrate on watching the tennis. And that I don't have to buy expensive tickets for Eastbourne.

Now we're talking. Show me.

Flippant. Let's see what happens when the contest starts. ;P

I don't judge. Tell meeeeeee.

Yeah, I am going home in two weeks. I played one-on-one with the guy running the sessions this morning and he made me run a lot (made me hit a lot of forehands ) and it was really tiring but...I didn't sweat.

I'll vote you over Sophitia, no worries. Great, I'll vote later after I make some dinner.
Quote:

You'll never know. Eden was seeded #6 last year if I'm not wrong so the fact that she's seeded so much lower this year means that the posters that know her aren't posting that much this time round. Pirata is awesome as well but she doesn't post in NT as much as you do, so... who knows.
