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. […]

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 […]

Getting Geared Up for Semester Two

The semester break seems to have flown by! Can you believe that we’ll be back at uni this time next week? I’m actually really looking forward to it. I’ve had a great time catching up with family and friends over the holidays, and Brainy’s had plenty of R and R. I was feeling pretty down […]

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, […]

Maintaining Momentum

I’m in the library writing this, and gosh it feels strange to be on top of things. Strange but good. While it wasn’t exactly bales of fun having to do so much work over the break, or playing catch up from being sick, I’m really glad I made the effort. For the first time all […]

Assignment Stress is Building…

This year hasn’t quite shaped up how I imagined. I’m still a little freaked out about dropping a subject and having to make up the credits further down the track. It was never part of the game plan, and I feel as though I’m falling behind the flock. No one else seems to struggle with […]

Study Time & Weighing Options

Given how much extra work our lecturers seem to be piling on this semester, and how much harder I’m finding it to get my head around all the things I’m supposed to be learning, I’ve been trying to work on my time management. I figure, if I want to do well (which I do), I […]

Exams: Staying Positive

I was feeling pretty down after my first exam. I think I probably did well enough to pass, but not by much. I’m trying not to let it get to me. Ewe-nice has been a big help. I texted her after the exam and told her it hadn’t gone well. We were supposed to meet […]

Exam Prep

At the start of the semester, I thought it was generous for the powers that be to set aside an entire week for exam revision. Now that it’s here, it doesn’t feel like anywhere near enough. I mean, how am I supposed to learn a semester’s worth of information in one week? Okay, not learn, […]

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 […]
