Important point, I did IB, but I didn't finish it. So at that point I couldn't handle that workload. But I'm hoping I can now, with less tears.(But to be honest I think the hardest part about IB wasn't the workload but the culture where being stressed out of your mind is a virtue.)
I really hope I'll be able to enjoy this, and it feeling like a fun thing rather then a terrible thing to power through.
But it'll be fine. I think. It's just all a bit scary.
