In college I often spent the summers in town when most people moved back home. It was not cool, and there was not much to do. The town basically shut down. It might be cool if you go to school in Boston, but not most other places.
Amanda seems like a bad influence on eighth graders.
AMANDA: It's really cool here for the summer. I'm picking up some extra credits, the classes are small, and there's always loads to do.
AMANDA: Later I'm going to hang out with one of the janitors, some eighth graders from a science camp on campus, and two international students who arrived early. I think we're going bowling! How do you say strike in Hong Kongian?
