My last post for 2013

This is my last post for 2013.

2014 is going to be a special year for a lot of us. It is when we will graduate from high school and enter university. Recently I have been surrounded by loads of homework, essays and application emails and so have my roommates. We’ve all experienced through staying up at night to finish work that needs to be done. Because of this, I am determined to set a goal for myself in 2014, to stop PROCRASTINATING.

Through various assignments, I realized that the time I finish my work gets closer and closer to the actual deadline. This is not a very good habit, especially when I have a lot of things to do and when they have to go to many other people. Some say that finishing work before the deadline boots the adrenaline in the body which then increases creativity. However, I still think I need to be responsible for myself and do what I should do, instead of looking forward to being busy when I can actually start my work.

2013 has been a busy year. IB, university applications and other small things have made this year full and exciting.

I have already made a small list of what I would love to do in 2014:

1. Stop PROCRASTINATING

2. Get a driver’s license

3. Try to read and understand the Name of the Rose

4. Study hard for IB

5. Don’t wake up angry.

Since there is more than a month left for 2013, I think we should still do our best and try to have a satisfying ending of this year… which can also bring a perfect beginning for the next.

Good luck.

Deadlines

We students, especially IB2s, have loads of deadlines. I suppose everyone has done the first draft of Extended Essay. We now have TOK (Theory Of Knowledge) presentation and TOK essay to be done. For the essay, the first draft should be handed in by 14th of October, second draft on 2nd of December and the final draft should be submitted on 14th of February (St.Valentine’s day!). For presentation, there is no accurate date, but it will be done during November and December. TOK practice essay about Basel trip (only IB1s) is due this Friday!

For IB2, we need to prepare application requirements by mid or end of November, and deadline for senior will is 1st of December. Make sure don’t forget these deadlines, otherwise you may mess up the whole year!
