    Sorry i've been very distant lately. I'm really busy. I have dance twice a week, riding and work. Speaking of which, i'm writing this on my phone at work right now. xD Not to mention I'm going to start riding my old barrel horse. Smile

    Dot! How great to see you again! We wondered where you went Very Happy

    Um yeah. You can see that Joce's done a lot of site changes lately! Very Happy Introducing... Chat, portal, chat box, character interviews, lyrics, fanfic, essays, site forum... LOL XD

    Joce, half term holiday - you get it in the middle of the term. I have to waste it all for stupid Maths. I'm ditching it anyway! Razz

    I'm not going. 5 days, 1000 pounds and my family don't come with me? I can't see my uncle in Miami? No way José! (Whoever this José dude is anyway.)

    Lol they're travelling for most of it anyway! 16 hours plane, so they have say... 104 hours, a few hours getting to their hotel - doubt they'll be at JFK - then they'll have to have another few to rest & sleep then they go to Washington AND Philadelphia when they're already in NYC. Only 40 hours of actual sightseeing!

    Welcome back, Dot/Kelly!

    I got a C plus on my math test. I am a genius Cool .

    Mac, it sounds like you're better off not going. That sounds like a real little amount of time, considering the distance they're going.

    I'm back! My school trip has been the best ever! We wrecked the bus, didn't sleep at all, drove our teachers NUTS, stayed at the night club almost till dawn, oh it was just AWESOME. But, of course, almost everyone cried at the end, because this is our last trip together ever Sad . Anyway, as I told you, almost everyone was dead drunk late at night, and I got assigned to worry only for my best friend, and he was a handful. I literally had to jump on the guy's back to get him to enter his room while he was very loudly singing "Better drunk than old" with the teachers room two doors from his. Idiot. Then the next morning I was there when he woke up all hungover, with his head pounding like crazy, and then throwing it all up. God, I'm a good friend. They don't give me credit enough XD .

    Hahahahahaha! Sounds like it was awesome fun Smile I love residential trips. I just dislike having them with my class Razz

    Lol on PGL - the name of the trip we went to - everyone was running round into each others rooms and I joined in and ended up in... The teacher's room.
    Ooops! XD

    Is the song 'Bolje piti pijan nego star', Lizzie? That's a national anthem for all my group of friends - whenever there's a party or a birthday we end up singing it XD
    I'm glad you had a good time though. I just love the nocturnal shift I take whenever we go on a trip; awake at night, sleeping at day. Very Happy I know what you mean about being sad though; this Austria trip would be the last one with the 3rd graders, with whom I'm really close with - I have more firends there than in my own class XD And anyway, next year, when they're going to be 4th gradeers they probably won't be able to go on any trips becuase of tests and državna matura and all. Sad

    Yes, I love that song. But Moji Drugovi (My Friends) really brings us together. You should have seen us, everyone concentrated in one spot singing like our lives depended on it. Everyone was hugging and yelling and crying. It was so amazing.

    I'm not going to mention any of the songs I sing when somebody mentions something related to it.

    "Disrespect--"
