I'm really sorry for the EXTREME slowdown. But really, the IB (International Baccalaureate), really takes the time out of you.

OOohh I feel for ya.

Been there done that.
(luckily I was there the 2nd year the program was implemented in my high school, so they weren't too rough on us)

Have you started your Project yet?

I'm the fourth year, that's why I went to the school I did, (20 students beats 120)

Anyway, which project are you talking about? Their's loads of them.

I just found a film that discribes IB for those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about.

Actually, with the exeption of Spanish, and History, I'm either at the top of my class (of 10 :lol: ) or right next to it. (It's actually hard not to be at the top of my class in Music SL when I'm the only one in it. :lol: :lol: :lol: ).

Anyway, I'm happy to be in it, I just no longer have a life.

Don't worry about slowing down here TBOL3. Education should be your #1 priority and we will still be here when you have more time for volunteer activities.

Personna Project, or that what they called it in my school. It's the big project you have to do during your last year.

No, I haven't heard of it yet. It might of changed, or that was just you're school. Right now, I'm mostly just doing CAS, and work the classes tell me to do. (Except for Music SL, with a new teacher I have to proud him to tell me what I'll need to do, and actually give me assignments that will help me.)

you're in high school?

I'm pretty sure all IB schools have it. Maybe they call is something else, like an "integrative project" or something like that... Basically a project you do during the last year of your IB program, and it has to touch all the areas of interactions (*shudder*) and it has to be something big an influential...

Your extended essay?

No, I'm starting ToK (Where we will be doing our extended essay) next semester. (I was in our schools pre-IB least year, which was a collection of AP and Honors classes)

Ah, maybe they only have the project in high school... we didn't have an essay.

LOL there's this Facebook group called "I survived IB", which I joined but feel a little guilty cause our year got off so easily LOL

What was it like for you?

But I was luckier than some others, whose project supervisor had no idea what to do, and said everything was alright until they woke up 1 month before deadline and realized what the student did was off track...

or those who kept the student's project journal (where we had to write down all our creative process and such) for WEEKS!

Ya, are IB coordinator is good at staying on track. (Last year 5 of 7 seniors graduated with full diplomas, 1 missed by one point!)

Anyway, I'm saposed to have a three day weekend, well it's gone. It will be almost completely devoted to homework. (Although, shh, I'll try to do some other stuff. :roll: )
