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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

The Familiar Unfamiliar

I can’t believe it! Ewe-nice and I don’t have a single tute together. We’re doing most of the same subjects, so I just assumed we’d have similar timetables. I know it shouldn’t matter. It’s not as though tutes are for hanging out with your friends or anything, and we see each other all the time […]

Get Ready. Get Set…

I’ve been having a ball at O’Week! Being a Peer Mentor has been a real confidence boost. Turns out I know more about Adelaide and the Uni than I thought, and I’ve met some fascinating people, too! It’s also encouraged me to be more involved in O’Week, and all the info. seminars and activities have got […]
