{ And It Hurts Like Heaven }

Hey!
So, some of you might be wondering where I've been.
As you may have guessed the answer is quite simple: IB.
Well maybe not IB, maybe the naive-spring-maria who decided to overload this term with course-on-toppa-course-on-toppa-course resulting in disaster. I had three foreign languages at once; French, Italian, and Swedish- that basically meant four words tests a week. I had my HL Maths preparatory course, which was basically 2-4 hours of math per day for dumdums like me. Also I had a lovely IB-style history course, which generally meant the teacher e-mailing us essay assignments on Sunday night- to be turned in the next morning of course. So all in all, it wasn't IB's fault, it was mine. By piling on electives like Italian, French and drama (got chosen to be head director) along with really tedious courses at once I managed to really tire myself out.
All in all, I had school from 8 to 5 everyday, carrying an eight course load.

The first couple of weeks I was doing fine, got all my work done and everything. But eventually I started to lose a lot of sleep, started to lose motivation and began falling asleep at school, the bus, the floor, everywhere.
After being accustomed to 4-6 hours of sleep, surprise surprise, I got sick. And being me, I refused to miss school and that resulted me coughing my soul out in each class, popping painkillers and antibiotics and taking two and half weeks to heal. On top of this, the arts teachers at my school decided to put me in various school performances, singing with the last droplets of my voice :(

I am a clean person, so my room was sad to be treated like that. But yeah, that was every night.

See how some of the post-its are almost empty?
That was my next-day-due essay at 12 am (turned out nine pages...)

I managed my time really badly during exam week and did quite poorly on my exams :/
How poorly? I'll find out on Monday when we get everything back. Shivers.

most embarrassingly my screensaver :

Okay, I had a rough time. We all have rough times. I am fine now, after sleeping excessive amounts, gobbled up way too much chocolate and watched way too much television.
IB will be way harder, and the term coming up will only be a bit easier. But here's my new motto:

Because I know where I'm headed, and :

This is how I recovered:

chocolate, ambiance lighting, blankets, Christmas films, scarves, and Christmas carols can pull anyone out of pretty much anywhere

So, I suppose you might get it now :)
And to end with something...bad.

Okay so I realize this clip is bad.
The piano is bad.
The singing is at too high and its shakey and offkey.
The lyrics are wrong! (ha!)
The quality is bad.
But all in all, in all its horrible imperfections this perfectly sums up how I've been feeling lately.
This was right after I had royally screwed up my HL prep math exam and I look exactly how I felt.



Glad to be back (:

  1. Voi Maria, oo ylpeä kun jaksoit ton! (: Mulla on ollu kans vähän katastrofijakso, ei sillä että se olisi ollut mitenkään tosi rankka (vuoden kolme viimestä jaksoa on kaikki pahempia kuin nämä kaksi ekaa), vaan koska mua ei oo kiinnostanut. Matikasta putosin parikin kertaa, sain ehkä yhden kolmesta kotilaskusta tehtyä joka kerta, mutta en jaksanut opiskella joka ainetta täydellä teholla. Niinpä matikka sai jäädä. Mulla on nyt koeviikko puolessa välissä (3 koetta tehty, 3 jäljellä), ja voin rehellisesti sanoa, että luin kaikkiin jo tekemiini kokeisiin yhteensä ehkä tunnin-puolitoista tuntia. Tosi ahkeraa...

    Lisäksi ehdin jo hukata kaikki ajatukset siitä, mitä tekis lukion jälkeen. Kiitetään opo-kurssin puolikasta...

    Mutta jaksamista sinne, jos joku niin sä pystyt tohon! (:

  2. I hope the IB doesn't kill you! And I just have to say that if you're feeling exhausted already, though it's only the first year, you will be dead next year. So you just have to let go of something. And yes I know what I am talking about, I'm an IB survivor :D Just popped to your blog through searching some random IB pages so I hope I'm not being too random.

    Nice blog, and though you said your song wasn't good, it wasn't bat either!

    Hang in there and keep up the good work :)

  5. Älä ota paineita siitä, että sun pitäisi päivitellä blogia. Se tulee tärkeysjärjestyksessä viimeisenä ja jos lukijat ei sitä ymmärrä, se on niiden ongelma :)
