Okay I know that you are probably sick and tired of my complaining and ranting about the IB and schoolwork so I thought I'd give you a little update on my extended essay. The EE (as it is fondly abbreviated) is a 4000 word research paper on pretty much any topic of your choice necessary for graduating with an IB diploma. I chose to do mine in social and cultural anthropology on the topic of: transnational Sikh marriage ceremonies and how they act as a cultural performance to reveal gender, structure, and agency.
Today was a writing day and I didn't get as much done as I thought. Anywho, the final draft deadline is this Monday so it's going to be a giant sigh of relief to get this finished.
After reading a motivational comment on my last post (I have a sneaking suspicion about who left it), I am definitely looking forward to the Christmas break. I am planning to take some students home with me :)
On another note, I probably already mentioned that I have applied to UBC for next year. It makes the most sense as for universities but I can't help but wonder if there is somewhere that is a better fit.
- close to home
- in Vancouver
- good reputation
- big adjustment
