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 […]

Group Assignments – Ugh!

It is a truth universally acknowledged that for every group assignment there’s one group member who doesn’t pull their weight. For our final big assignment before exams that group member is me, and I feel incredibly sheepish about it. Our (self-appointed) group leader keeps organising meetings to discuss what we’ve done so far, but because […]

Student Health & Wellbeing Forum

I can’t believe we’re on mid-semester break already! Honestly, it couldn’t have come at a better time—I really need a few weeks off classes to catch up on my work and get myself sorted for the rest of the semester. Those of you who have been following along will know I’ve had a bit of […]

Maintaining Connections and Friendships

Ewe-nice and I went out for coffee after our classes on Monday. We hadn’t caught up for weeks and I was a little annoyed that I had to be the one to organise it. I know I haven’t been around much, or making an effort with everything that’s been going on at home, but Ewe-nice […]

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 […]

Finding Out You’re the Third Wheel…

Mystery solved! I finally got to the bottom of why Ewe-nice and Ramsey have been acting so strangely since the end of exams. It turns out they’re dating! Ewe-nice spilled the beans at the movies last week, and I was gob smacked. I guess, in hindsight, I should have seen it coming? They were always […]

Skating on (Scattered) Sunshine

This time last year I remember feeling so incredibly overwhelmed. It was my first semester at uni. I kept getting lost on my way to classes, felt like the lecturers were speaking Klingon for all I understood, and was convinced I’d never make friends. Trotting around campus this week, I’ve spied the occasional new student. […]

Holidays!!!

Friends, a week-and-a-half on the farm with the fam has done me a world of good! While I love the hustle and bustle of city life (and the amazing cafes and dessert bars), I’m definitely still a country kid at heart. On days when it hasn’t been raining, it’s been great to spend time outdoors […]

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 […]
