    Anyone with IB stress?

    I just got back from a study tour to China (it was fantastic) and I just had the most hectic 1st week of term ever. Had to restart my EE from scratch, start my tok essay, finalise my world lit draft, start planning uni registrations, start rehersals with a new wind symph, organise two other cas activities for this term, do the paperwork for those activities, start preparing for my A1 oral commentaries, chase up photo evidence for my group 4 work and on top of that, jetlag, lack of sleep and i was sorely missing someone i was close to on the tour. *sigh* wat a crap start to the term =_= *EDIT: i suppose this should actually go in the rant section... right?

    What does your username mean?

    Lorenzo is my surname. My friends call me lorenzo.. coz its sounds cooler than Josh. I must admit im surprised how much depth is evident in these usernames. If i wasnt feeling lazy, I'd hav picked something that sounded cool. Again gratz @ cixelsyD (you dont know how long it took me to write that i fail at dyslexia...) I wish my spelling mistakes were that pro...
  6. Wait... so the "no more than 40 hours per activity" things isnt actually enforced by IBO?? What if we just decide to ignore our CAS coordinator and exceed that limit, do all the paperwork and everything, our coordinator cant actually say that the 15 hrs more than 40 wont count and be backed up by IBO? Also I just remembered another annoying thing my CAS coordinator said. She set a deadline for all the CAS documentaion for the past term and said if any activities, at that deadline, with incomplete documentation will not be counted at all. Is this actually enforced by IBO?
  7. Hahaha my school is like that too (we'r the first lot graduating ever) You should still aim for 150 hours, but they'r trying to say that you shouldnt restrict yourself to only 150 hours. And now our co-ordinator is saying that since CAS is an 18 month program, we need to hav evidence that we'r doing cas until the end of june. Maybe its been mentioned somewhere else, but I'm guna ask again anyway. How many hours are you guys allowed to claim per activity?

    Global Warming

    I would hav to agree with joesaelens. There's too much emotion and media hype around the whole thing.

    Global Warming

    i think im in the middle too. I realise that the climate may be changing and that we almost definitely have played a hand in that, but i dont believe its as drastic as the media have made it out to be. I think, regardless whether it was us completely who caused it or partly the natural processes as well, we should be trying to lessen our ecological footprint as homeroom put it and improve our technologies to lessen our impact on the world because we can. We are the only species that ever existed on this planet that has manipulated it to fit our lives. So i think we should be start trying to change things for the benefit of the world, regardless of who or what caused the problems.

    Favorite Sports

    i used to love and play heaps of sports but after i started IB, i moved to a new school with limited on site facilities. i loved the teamwork in volleyball when i was with my old team and when i used to be good at it. (im so out of practice these days). i know the exact feeling you guys were talking about. soccer is also FANTASTIC!!! though im so unfit these days i play futsal instead. i was a winger (left usually) and i loved the intricate footwork and passing plays our attacking players used and loved being a part of it. defense annoyed me though coz i sucked at it. i also love badminton, mostly because its available most lunch times at school. but i love playing full hardcore with my friend du coz it just takes my mind off everything except moving around the court properly. Table tennis is fun in that way too, because of the concentration i need to put in.
