  1. Thanks for your point of view The problem I have/had with her bleaching her skin was probably due to the fact that I can't separate the idea of racial motivation and vanity motivation. As a black girl, I know that the standard of beauty consists of being a white,thin,bue-eyed blonde girl. So essentially,to me,a black woman,aspiring to look "prettier" and caucasian seems like self-hatred."She wants to be viewed as pretty" & "She doesn't want to be black" are married in my mind. On a much smaller scale, I wonder if what I do to look "pretty" is self-hatred because I'm aspiring toward a whi
  2. Hey, I believe that the woman bleached her skin severely.How exactly, I am not sure. And I would have loved to do my TOK presentation on this topic but I thought of it WAY too late I think your point about how skin lightening is like plastic surgery is interesting.I wouldn't have thought about it that way because as a dark-skinned black girl, it's an issue I can relate to quite personally. It seems a lot deeper than having fake boobs or something to the effect.Also, I come from a country where plastic surgery is almost non-existent and thus,I wouldn't associate the two.

  4. Hmm,I'm going to agree with the next poster.If you're a mid-5 in english, I wouldnt take the chance. I feel the same way you do however,I thought my WLs and other IA's were really good.19+19 but I ended up with a 5.I don't have the grade break downs though so I can't be sure where it all went wrong.All I'm saying is you're not the only one staring at your results and going "WTF???".
  5. Disney made me wish I was a princess,but after the reality checks...its okay.I'll pass on that. NP desires deeply to visit Japan.
  6. I had my worked all saved on my flash drive. Every time I finished an important assignment (or made progress in an EE/TOK draft) I saved it onto google documents.
  7. Thanks Schrödinger's Cat I have decided to look on the bright side since I already have uni acceptance.I guess it was just a bit of a shock :/ Congrats to you & good luck to all other Nov2011ers for uni acceptance and the future at large
  8. I got 31.I feel like the poster below me. I was predicted 36. I feel like a disappointment. but whatever,I should be happy I have a diploma.
  9. Well Done so far IBsurvivors I'm so proud of everyone who gets a diploma! IB was so challenging! I'm nervous because I have to wait for mine to be released online.But I promise to post :/
  10. At first I didn't think IB impacted my life significantly.That is why I initially,did not reply to this post But the other day,there was something about racism on the news and then I started thinking about racism and what causes it and analysing situations where my friends had conflict because of race and I wondered "what is racist?are people racists or are thoughts or words racist?" "if someone says something racist,are they racist?" Yeah...then I realised that IB has made me think deeper than before.
  11. My motivation to stay in IB...was that I didn't really have a choice.Once I was in it,I couldn't abandon it to do A-Levels because my parents would never allow such a thing.With that knowledge,I always just tried to make sure I got a diploma.Afterall,no matter how hard IB felt,I couldn't let my guard down because that would mean I wasted 2 years of my life.
