The last two weeks of my summer holiday were spent at summer school in Oxford.
It was a pre IB course and I did actually learn quite a bit from it. And I had loads of fun, and met lots of awesome people from all over the world.
If you want to know more about OSC, click here.
I don't really know how to go into detail about those two weeks, but I can say that I enjoyed it thoroughly, and even though I went alone and was scared I wouldn't make friends, I was proved very wrong. Not only that but people were very social and it wasn't at all hard to get to know people. I can tell you that there are a lot, a lot of smokers though.
It was a really fun two weeks. Definitely go check out their website though! They've got lots of IB courses and IB revision guides etc.
This also marks the end of my Summer 2013 series.
Goodbye Summer 2013! You've been too good :)

Paris day two.
As you can see, we went around to pretty much all the landmarks, thanks to the hop on hop off buses!
I have learnt that when going on holiday, and you want to see all the sights, those buses are the best because they take you everywhere and have those earphone tours.
It was really hot in Paris too. Europe is so hot.
Did I mention that it was my first time in Paris/France?
That's kind of it. Sorry I don't have much to say about the sights and cathedrals and the Eiffel and stuff like that, I don't really know what to say..
I'm not really that into sightseeing and things like that, I mean, I just see them, and I'm like oh okay, and then I leave. I think that's kind of a teenager thing, not knowing how to appreciate sights yet.
But I hope you enjoy my photos nonetheless!
Third day of school, second day of classes!
I quite enjoy my classes so far, English especially because we're learning about languages and things like that. We've started getting quite a bit of homework already, not surprisingly.
If you want to know more in depth information and details you can go to my IB blog that I am currently still setting up!

We are now onto Paris!
We stayed in a hotel sort of near everything, which was good since we were only there for two days.
After we got there, we put down our things and went straight out to the Louvre which are the majority of photos in this post. It was quite cool and there were so many people!!! I also didn't know that it was free entry for under 18s so that was awesome.
We spent most of the day there and it started raining after so we went for a walk around Lafayette.
The last photo is a photo of my 'seafood salad', not much of a salad really, considering the amount of seafood there was. It was honestly very, very filling and I didn't even finish the entire thing.
That was my day in Paris! Second day in Paris coming tomorrow.
Third day of school today, ToK day!
It wasn't really particularly fun.. No offense. I really appreciate the teachers putting in the effort and everything but the only part that really talked about ToK was the first two lessons.
Nonetheless it was alright, and school will be school!
Tomorrow is Friday and I have a full day of classes tomorrow.. Maths first..
I should probably get to work (I have work and it's only the third day crazy right, well not really according to IB and school)
