Busy, Busy, Busy!

Remember last week I mentioned Ramsey, the funny sheep in my tute I wanted to be friends with? And how we went for coffee with Ewe-nice? Well, it went swimmingly. The café staff had to kick us out at closing time. Ramsey’s a huge film nerd, and we spent ages arguing over our favourites. Plus, […]

Loneliness and Making Friends

This is difficult to admit, but now that Brainy and I have the study side of things somewhat under control, I’ve realised that I’m actually kind of lonely. Earlier in the semester, I wrote about wanting to make new friends, but then I was having so much trouble keeping up with my work, I never […]

I’m baaa-ack!

Friends, the last time I wrote, I wasn’t feeling very well, and then the work piled up and I haven’t felt much like blogging, but I’m pleased to tell you I feel a million times better, and Brainy & I have been working extra hard to get back on top of things. Yes, that’s right, […]

Say Goodbye to 2016!

Friends, it’s official: we survived the semester. Huzzah for us! *Blasts Queen’s ‘We are the Champions’ at full volume and sways to the music.* It really doesn’t seem that long ago that I was getting lost on my way to lectures, freaking out over my first assignment, and wondering if I’d ever make any friends. […]

Planning for the Holidays

My big plan for the holidays was to pop my beach umbrella, roll out my towel and stretch out on the sand for the summer. After these last few hectic months, it seemed like a solid strategy. Brainy needed a break. I needed a break. So on Monday, that’s exactly what I did. And it […]

Exams are Over! Time to Celebrate!

Freedom is ours! These last few weeks have been tough, but we made it! For a while there, it really felt as though exams would never end. I had my last one on Friday, and watching the clock run down the final few minutes was absolute torture. I was trying to be diligent and check […]

Avoiding Exam Prep Burnout

Do you know what’s amazing? Sunlight. Warm, life-nourishing sunlight. I haven’t seen a whole lot of it lately. With so much exam revision to work through, I’ve been getting to the the library first thing and staying until late. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been taking breaks. Ewe-nice and I make regular trips to the […]

End of Semester Stress!

When it rains, it pours, am I right? I’m still super busy with assignments but I also need to start revising for exams. The good news is that I’m in a much better headspace than I was this time last week, when I was flat-out panicking. Oddly enough, the reason I’m feeling better is that […]

How to Cope

Sorry I haven’t posted lately. Remember in my last post how I was super stressed about all the uni work I had to do? Yeah. That. It turns out I wasn’t alone, either. Ewe-nice has been freaking out too. She has a part-time job at a restaurant in the city. They’ve been short staffed, so […]

Good Mental Health. Think about it.

I’m learning so much this week! And not just in class, either. I’ve been getting involved with Mental Health Awareness Week and discovering how I can better ‘value my mind’ and ‘thrive through connection’. I’ve been tuning into ABC’s Mental As 2, a series of documentaries exploring different aspects of mental health. The series runs […]
