But you can't revert to something that you never were to begin with.

Yep, she obviously has a crush on Lopez herself, so she was bound to point it out. It all depends on Hector's exam schedule and my own, of course. Far from guaranteed to be going, but if I did go, it would be great to see you there.
She hasn't told me about her crush. I am very disappointed. When are qualies? I think I finish exams mid-June, followed by dissertation which is due end August.

Double mathematics, physics & economics. I have high hopes that I'm on an upward trajectory. Hopefully I peak in a few years' time.
I did Economics. I hated micro economics but really liked macro economics. Your subject combi is the kind that would've got me EEEA if I had taken it. Double mathematics = You guys have a broad range of subjects to choose from for A Levels right? I remember reading somewhere online that you have Philosophy as an A Level subject? Our subjects were really conventional and boring: Maths, Physics, Chem, Bio, Literature, Geography, History, Econs, Art. Might've changed now though.

Design a futuristic car, draw it, write an extensive piece about it, and do a presentation on it. It went pretty well actually, but as I said, there were some really clever kids there. Yes, they were giving away a car, but the competition wasn't open to anyone. It's okay. I had low expectations going into it. But I'm delighted I will be able to see their factory.
Amazing. I couldn't come up with a design to begin with. You did a good job then.

All this, and I'm not even fond of cars.
Then why did you enter? I thought you liked cars.

It was freezing cold last night. Walking home at around 11pm, the pavement which had leaves all over it was really icy. The air was freezing cold, and I only had a couple of layers on.
Icy? You should know better than to have only a couple of layers on. I walked back to my hall at about 2.45 a.m. and I had three layers on and it was only a 5-minute walk and I was absolutely dying.

But Georgie was never mean and nasty.
