Y’all are going down this Thursday! Down, down, down! I just thought I’d let you know that I’ve been studying pretty hard for you, and I am prepared for anything you decide to throw at me.
So. Bring. It. On. I dare you. Cuz ya know what? Emily Dickinson, Shakespeare, and Flannery O’Conner have nothing on me! I am prepared. I am going to continue to study until I know everything inside and out. Your 8 minute commentary can’t scare me. Neither can your backup, the 10 minute guided discussion. Or the blackmail that you’re 15% of my diploma grade. Ha, ha, ha! I laugh in your face. This Thursday, I am gonna kill ya. IOC, you’re toast.
Help! Who’s taken the IB SL or HL music test before?
IB hatin my life right now
I’m taking the SL Music exam this Friday, and my teacher hasn’t prepared us at all for it! I’m desperate, so anything will help!
As I struggle to work on my IB external assesment, the musical investigation, I am growing more and more angr with my teacher. He has totally screwed over the 7 or so IB kids in the music theory class by not teaching us the freaking curriculum. Sure, two weeks ago he emailed us the IB Music curriculum guide, and today was the first day that I’ve had time to look at it. On the musical investigation paper alone, we were supposed to have like 75 hours of instruction. He literally talked to us in his office about the assignment for 15 minutes. The final draft is due on Monday, and it will be shipped out to some grader in some other country. No pressure, right? Ha. Ha.
I read the description of the musical investigation and what they’ll be looking for, and I’m pretty sure that my paper wouldn’t even come close to passing, so I seriously need to revamp it. UGH. This is so stressful, and I have low motivation to complete the assignment because I have no idea of what the heck I am supposed to do! Thanks a lot, Mr. Larsen. If I fail the test and fail to get my IB diploma, which I am practically killing myself to do, I will have no problem blaming you.
end rant. (not that this will be the last of them between now and the test)
listening to bollywood music and doing homework.
I’ve been infected with Chronic Writer’s Block
Life would be perfect, except for the homework part. Who’s scared for AP hell month? ME ME ME!
I have a really important presentation in English class tomorrow, the Individual Oral Presentation (IOP), which constitutes 15% of my English diploma grade. I have an idea of what I want to do, but I can’t nail down a solid thesis, despite staring at the computer for over four hours. I’m not panicking yet, but I will be soon if I can’t figure something out.
In the meantime, I’ve taken several Disney princes personality tests and have come to the conclusion that I am some hybrid of Belle and Cinderella, I’ve eaten three different types of cookies, I’ve read about chakras, I’ve helped prepare cauliflower to go with dinner, and I delivered music to my accompanist. None of these, save for the chakra thing, have been beneficial to my investigation. Irritatingly enough, I seem to have absolutely no problem writing a post; it’s the stuff that actually matters that my brain reuses to focus on.
I hate homework
That is how much sleep I’ve had the last 3 days. It sucks. Last night was the worst- I was doing homework until 1:15 AM, went to bed at 1:30, got up for school at 6:00. But no school tomorrow or Friday! I am going to bed SUPER early tonight.
But seriously, my high school starts at 7:30. I have to leave my house at about 7:05 to get there on time (lots of traffic around school, plus we never actually leave till 7:10ish). Teenage brain chemistry is naturally inclined to make you get sleepy later, which requires getting up later. Sometimes school really bites. I had a mountain of homework after the concert (school music ensembles) last night. Let me just say that I was not the only person up till the early hours of the morning….almost everyone in my AP/IB classes was in the same boat!
all I freaking do on Sundays is homework! It’s the one day of the week when I’m lazy and don’t do any exercise (though I might do some strength traininng later), but I always spend several hours doing homework. I guess I can’t complain too much since I choose to do the IB program, but really, 6 hours of homework over the weekend seems a bit excessive. Garrrr. I shouldn’t even be on tumblr right now because I end up wasting 30+ minutes on here without even realizing it. Well, back to doing a massive AP bio assignment on respiration….
