Reasons to Sleep With and IB Student

Got this off a facebook group. Pretty damn funny :D

1) We can fit two years worth into a month.

2) Re-take? What’s a re-take? We get it right first time.

3) We have incredible endurance.

4) No matter how much work we have, we can still make free time for ourselves.

5) We can serenade our partners in at least 2 different languages.

6) Our Physicists are experts at handling the forces between two objects.

7) Our Biologists know their way around the human body better than any other 6th form student.

8) The chemistry in a relationship is mere child’s play to our higher Chemists.

9) Our Mathematicians’ knowledge of projectile motion means that things will never get messy – unless you want them to.

10) We are experts at getting the maximum amount of work done with the least amount of effort.

11) Because we do it with creativity, action and (give you a) service.

12) We have experience in extended activity.

13) We can take it to a Higher Level.

14) "A-level students are like tired old bangers; they'll do the job, but it'll be a bit boring. IB students go like Ferraris."

15) Our English syllabus puts a lot of emphasis on oral assessment.

16) No need for modules here; we do it all in one go.

17) It's widely recognised that IB is longer and harder.

18) Haven't you seen the IB people wandering around saying how fucked they are?

19) We're used to going all night long.

20) Our Computer Scientists can push all the right buttons.

21) Our Economists know just how to supply what you demand.

22) A session with one of our Pyschologists will relieve stress and help you sleep at night; and I'm not talking about Insomnia Therapy.

23) We IBers fall asleep in class so that we can get more done at night.

24) Experiments conducted around the world have at last confirmed what we have long suspected: sleeping with an IB student can in some cases double the IQ of a student doing a less rigorous qualification.

25) Our Group 4 students are fearless when it comes to experimentation.

26) We treat you like we treat our homework - we slam you on the table and do you all night long.

27) Thanks to TOK, we have several different methods for getting to 'know' you.

28) We go beyond doing just what we have to do, to make things more interesting.

29) Our Geographers know what to push and how to pull.

30) If you want, we work well in larger groups.

31) We can think creatively and come from all sorts of new angles.

32) Essays aren't the only thing we can pull out of our pockets at a moment's notice.

33) Our musicians will bring things to a slow swell followed by a climax.

34) Our Design & Technology students know just what materials and methods are right for you.

35) We can assess you both externally and internally.

36) Hey, we do need some reason to sleep.

37) We're willing to try new methods to get better results.

38) We've never been known to finish early.

39) It's not just our essays that are extended.

40) Like variety? We're international!

41) Our Historians will make it a night to remember.

42) Our Business students know all the right places to do their business.

43) Give the Kama Sutra to an IB student, and they won't just read and remember, but analyse and improve.

44) Our Visual Arts students aren't just aesthetically pleasing.

45) IB students aren't just better prepared for college academically.

46) Our Design & Technology students can handle a short nail or a long screw.

Framing Hanley is a must see band. Their cover of Lollipop is the shit. The lead singer is hot as hell. :)

A Matter of Boots

Warning: This blog suffers from extreme mood swings.
*note to Felipe - I have not abandoned my blog.
PS: Sorry this turned out to be such a long post.

I miss the cold. I miss freezing on the beach or mountain at night.
I miss the random hailing, and sludgy ice. I miss wearing boots.
Hopefully though, I will be able to during my visit in New Years.
If I can find them that is...

On a somewhat lighter note,
Report cards were mailed, and I did not awesome but alright.
Its just quarter grades though, I'll pull them up before the semester end.
That means exams. Which will probably occur end November and early December.
Which means I will be super cramming on my birthday for exams the next morning.
Oh joy.

On an even lighter note,
This is something that a friend wrote, but I haven't told him I'm putting it here.
Not that it really matters, he will never know. I found it really quite funny, it definitely brought a smile to my face.

There she stands, magnificent and slender. Her outline so polished and curved to fine detail. The chrome shine reflecting the sun's bright light, defining the very essence of perfection. She stands with such strength and posture no human being could ever maintain for such a period of time. The energy flowing through immediately alters the atmosphere in the room. She brings such passion and optimism out of her surroundings. The single bundle of darkness upon her head emits such contrast to the heavenly light emitting from her face. A price tag dangles from her leg, $150. The first thought through my mind; God, I need this lamp.

As for everything else in my life and on my mind, we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

It Has Been Awhile

I really just haven't been bothered to post anything because honestly,
theres nothing noteworthy happening. Is there ever?

I feel like I need a goal, or at least some sort of direction,
otherwise I'll continue in this never ending pattern of routine.

Distractions, I need distractions. To keep me from falling back into
those horrible bad moods. But I do have hope, maybe.

So this week of school will be a full one, then I have a week off :D
Quite happy about that. Maybe. I really feel like having fun,
I really need a good distraction.

So that's it then, I need direction and distraction.
And to survive IB.
And perhaps winter in Barcelona :)
