Studying for Replacement Exams

The sun is shining. My friends are partying. And I’m stuck in the library. Ugh, the injustice of it all! Okay, so it’s actually pretty good of the university to give me a second chance by letting me sit a supplementary exam, but it still sucks to be studying while everyone else is off celebrating. […]

In Limbo

I’m in limbo! This semester just will not end! You know how I was freaking out about my first exam? Well, it’s official: I messed up. I got an email from my topic coordinator yesterday. She’s already marked the exams and spoiler alert: I failed. Forty-eight per cent. FORTY-EIGHT! I was so close!!! The good […]

I think I Just Failed My Exam

I’m pretty sure I failed my first exam. In fact, I know I did. I suppose it shouldn’t come as a shock. My head wasn’t really in the game while I was studying, and I wasn’t expecting to ace it, but I figured I’d absorbed enough to scrape through. The short answer section wasn’t too […]

SWOTVAC 2018

This semester has been such a blur, and I can’t believe we’ll be done in just a few short weeks! But first we have to survive exams. Ugh. I don’t know why they make me so nervous, but I’m getting butterflies just thinking about being back in the exam hall with everyone being all silent […]

Taking Charge and Feeling Better

This week’s been a big one. Tomorrow, 31 August, is Census Date and I’ve had to make some tough decisions about the rest of the semester. My family have been urging me to stick with my studies, but I know they could really use my help around the house and the farm while Mum’s recuperating […]

Making Tough Decisions

Friends, it’s been another rough week. Mum’s still in hospital and I’ve been staying on the farm with the family so that I can help out and be close to her. The good news is that she’s definitely going to be okay, which has us all breathing epic sighs of relief. The bad news is […]

When Things Go Wrong

I jinxed myself when I wrote that this semester was off to a flying start. What I wouldn’t give to rewind back to when my biggest worry was whether or not I’d manage to get my readings done before my tutes! I know none of what’s happened in the past week is my fault, but […]

Before the Exam…

My first exam is tomorrow and I’m a bundle of nerves. My plan to knuckle down and revise only sort-of came to fruition. On the plus side, I’ve at least gone over all the material my lecturer said would be in the exam. I revisited my notes and large sections of our set readings and […]

Procrastination Station Redux

Remember last week how I was all laid back and binge-watching Netflix? Um, yeah, WHAT WAS I THINKING??!! Exams are mere days away and I’m nowhere near prepared. Brainy is in utter meltdown mode. I know I need to get it together and focus if I want to have any chance of doing well, but […]

Things Start to Slip…

I’m slipping into bad habits again. I finally submitted that essay I’d overlooked, but it was a week late and I’m going to lose a bunch of marks. Also, it wasn’t my best work. I just can’t believe I dropped the ball like that! Brainy’s having trouble moving on. I keep dwelling on how it’s […]
