I'm going to be S4 in September (Which means Grade 10?), but I still behave like a primary 4 student. :roll:


Primary 4? WTF mate. Anyway I'm a university student, when I graduate I'll fuck everyone's shit up

What I mean is, I behave like a primary 4 student ~_~

Master's degree. One step above bachelor's.
MA in Arabistics (Modern Standard Arabic and Turkish)
