    What do you do in Music?

    Wow. My class was laaaaaame especially compared to all of yours. It was called music theory class, but we pretty much just played with the school orchestra every day, and we were required to read a textbook and take notes on our own time. Starting in the spring, we started to meet every week to begin studying the prescribed pieces and did about 1-2 hours of studying the characteristics of musical eras. Oh and the IA, everything on our own time. It probably isn't like this at any other school... Our teacher didn't give a crap or know anything about IB, so. Except for the people who already knew about music beforehand, no one was prepared....

    Which UWC are you going to?!

    Mmmm, I wish I went to a UWC, or any boarding school, for that matter. Lucky ducks!
  4. Your scores and extracurriculars look better than mine, and I've just been accepted to Harvard. So just make sure you work on your essays a lot, and practice for your interview if you need to (I didn't). Also, you may want to have some "concentration" within your extracurriculars, so maybe you can use your piano-playing to do charity, teach, etc.

    Unrequited Love

    Do you know it's unrequited? I mean, have you asked him/her out or anything? I don't have much experience with unrequited love yet, but I've had lots of experiences where there's a (mutual?) interest but nothing ever happens because I'm/we're too shy, or whatever. And that sucks as well because there's the possibility but you didn't risk it, you know? If you are sure it's unrequited love, I'm sorry! I can imagine how terrible that kind of heartbreak is. Unfortunately, I think we'll all have to experience it some time in our lives as an essential part of the human experience, even that certain someone you love! Sorry I couldn't be more of a help. However you decide to handle it, good luck, and I really hope you feel better soon.

    Name Your IB School

    North Canyon High School, Phoenix, AZ. Not as exciting as where some other people are.
  10. Whenever I post a status, comment, or comment on a status on any profile page, I get an "error" page, and when I go back to the profile whatever I've posted has "doubled". Am I doing something wrong??
  11. Welcome to IBSurvival, then! The comments are just for communicating. If you want to talk to someone, you can either send them a personal message (private) or write a comment on their profile (public). Under the photo on a profile/wall, there is an 'Add friend'-button. It looks like a tiny person with a plus-sign on the shoulder. Ah! Thank you. Wow, OK... So how would specify to make a message private rather than public when you send one? And when you post a reply to a message (of either kind), which profile page do you post it on, your own or the other person's? Do replies to personal messages remain private, or can you decide whether to make it private or public? I hope these questions make sense...

    What does your username mean?

    Surname of a character in a novel + surname I made up for another character in the same novel, since he doesn't have one. Both are supposed to have accents aigus on the E's, though. Wouldn't it be funny if some of us knew each other personally but never knew it because of these usernames?
  13. I've never used an online forum or social networking site or anything like IBS, so I have a few questions: What is the purpose of the "comments" at the bottom of people's walls? How do these comments differ from comments on people's statuses? And how do you "friend" people? Thank you.

    Extracurriculars

    Haha yeah, I guess an advantage is that you get hundreds of hours for things like CAS!

    language

    I'm writing about a subject that has relevance to me (multilingualism). So whenever I mention my own experiences and observations, is it all right to use first person? Or should I use something like "this writer" instead of "I"?
