I know it’s been 6 months since I updated anything…. Now I am not only busy due to school stuff but also internship!
As the title said, I will write a little bit about my first weekend/Check-In Weekend in Caux.
Still feeling lost in the old big castle, Caux Palace, I only knew the lobby, way back to my room and of course where to find food a.k.a. cafeteria… But I got used to it pretty fast I think because I needed to find my classes and stuff you know 🙂 So, the first weekend was pretty much about orientation , getting to know your lecturers, schedules, important places in school, rules and getting your B-Permit done! B-Permit was the most exciting part! Don’t get me wrong….. NOT the process but what I can do with it! With a B-Permit I can travel to EU countries visa-less! Isn’t that just freakin’ awesome!!!!! 😀
Over with the B-Permit thing. As stated on Swiss Education Group’s website, all SEG schools are modern and have integrated their courses with technology, i did get an IPad Air 2, which I am suppose to keep until graduation. 🙂 Just so you know, I still prefer using books, papers and pens rather than IPad. I mean IPad does keep your information organized and tidy but jotting down notes with IPAD? A BIG NO NO for me: slow and in the end I can’t even remember why I wrote that note. It’s just not as effective I guess.
Now about schedule. Nothing special about my schedule, really. For me it’s just a piece of paper I need to know by heart as soon as possible. One thing I realized, much more chilled than high school. Meanwhile, it meant more independence and responsibilities. At that moment, I was extremely sure, I would be OK because since a kid, I have always gone to international schools and survived through it well.
One interesting fact I found out on my check-in weekend was that my program coordinator (beloved Mr. P), just randomly put me in a class while I witnessed it. Never ever I had that experience before. So, my story in class 1-3 started. 🙂
That is pretty much it I think to keep it short. It’s just too too too much to describe, really. That butterfly in stomach feeling, anxiousness, excitement, nervousness 🙂
