What the IB did to my social life…



We’re doing two different biology projects at the moment. One about harmful substances and the other one about cloning. And on friday our biology teacher (and one of our main IB teachers) was like:

‘Hey, two biology projects are not enough! I’m sure there’s a tiny bit of fun and social life left in all of you, so let’s do another one!’

…and that was when this absolute masterpiece of art was created that you can see above.

Most of the teachers think that it’s better to do all the work now, so we can ‘relax’ (yeah, relax….right…) towards the end of the IB. They don’t think about the fact that, if everyone thinks like this, nobody can manage this much work (unless you’re Edward – then you don’t have to sleep. And you glitter in the sun.) at once.

The amount of work we have to do already outlines the amount of work we did during the rest of our school career. My soon-to-be-ex friends are already like ‘Hey, do you want to go to… oh wait. Nevermind. Bye!’ But I guess that’s what it’s all about. And they promised it would get better. It will, right? ….right??!!

My Internship

Our school forces us to do an internship for three weeks, during february. Everyone has to contact different companies and find someone who is willing to take care of a student during this period. 

The internship will not be paid, and the few students who get some money, have to donate it to some organisation. 

First I thought about doing something in IT, but it turned out to be very difficult to find something interesting, so I continued asking around and finally got to my family doctor. She has a doctor’s practice in Zurich and since I’ve always been intersted in medicine, I figured that would be an intersting experience. Another benefit is, that work will start at ten o’clock, so I won’t have to work too long. The goal is to prepare us for our future life and to collect some experience in work life. Which reminds me of this….



Yeah, well… we’ll see… Wish me luck!
