  8. BM says:

    @QuickPWN: whoever that one, he’s so lucky.

  9. Sherry says:

    @BM I agree with you.

  10. BM says:

    @Downloadic: We don’t have Macs in our school, too bad.

  11. Sherry says:

    @BM I don’t have MAC in school as well.

  12. BM says:

    @Sherry: You’re still studying?

  13. BM says:

    Actually it’s our semestral break now.

  14. BM says:

    I thought you’re not studying.

  15. BM says:

    Because your Digg profile says you’re 28 years old.

  16. Sherry says:

    @BM no, I mean to say is the past not now ;(

  17. BM says:

    What course are you taking?

  18. Sherry says:

    the college and university here are stingy. Most students bring their own. If you are poor like me, back then I have to write on notepad.

  19. BM says:

    Well that’s an evidence Mac is not so popular.

  20. Sherry says:

    @BM what course are you taking? Are you plan to buy MAC?

  21. BM says:

    @Sherry: that’s the case for most asian countries.

  22. BM says:

    I just take 4 subjects.

  23. BM says:

    i’m a 3rd year irregular student.

  24. BM says:

    But I’m planning to shift course next year.

  25. BM says:

    I want to be a nurse actually, because we have many relatives abroad that take the same course.

  26. BM says:

    I want to work and live in the US too.

  27. Sherry says:

    @BM you have a nice dream, I am sure you can achieve it. Who knows you might be lucky to study in U.S and using MAC too.
