IB= Ultimate Nerds

I have officially started the IB Diploma program and I must say, it's not quite what I expected! Even though its only the second week, I'm feeling that I might actually be able to keep up with this! Although, I'm a little worried that two months from now, I am going to DEEPLY regret my decision to take this back-breaking program. Haha.

To start with, we aren't going to have any tests that count for two years. We are going to have 2 to 3 "internal assessments" in each subject that will count up our grades. Basically, we are spending two years studying up for these major exams at the end of the program...whooo....-.- The class, on the other hand, is great! :D Well, as great as IB can be. Ha. Ha. Of course, we are all nerds, but we are one of the most accepting and social classes in our grade! Everyone that takes a look at our books and hears about our requirements, automatically label us with: GEEKS. But we take it with grace :D About 50% of our class are new members, but they fit in just well. No new surprise there.

Besides starting IB, there are lots of new things at school. Not only do we have the new cafeteria, but I am also one of the leaders for skolelaget! The first meetings have been great! Nothing super duper over the top, but just perfect. It got off to a great start :D It's really fun to be on the "board" for laget with Eivind, Joachim and Andreas! Being the only girl is pretty interesting, but just reminds me of being with my three older brothers again :P

Lots and lots and lots of fun! Can't wait to see how the rest of the year turns out!
