Free at Last!

I’m freeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! I sat my supplementary exam yesterday, and I think it went okay. Actually, I’m pretty sure I nailed it. Seeing the uni counsellor the week before was the boost I needed to get me through. Not that the past week has been easy. Study always feels like a slog, even when it’s going […]

I haven’t been able to shake the sense that I’ve failed myself, and that’s made it difficult to study and to think about my plans for next year. I’ve been giving serious thought to withdrawing from my degree, but I don’t know if that’s because […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Semester is Over!

Holidaaaay! Celebraaaate! Am I right, friends, or am I right? I’m so thrilled we’ve made it through semester one. The minute I finished my final exam a huge load lifted—like I’d just been shorn. It was such a relief. And now we get to enjoy three whole weeks of study-free awesome. I know Brainy can […]

Exam Home Stretch…

My final exam is tomorrow and I couldn’t be happier! This semester has been tough—way tougher than I expected. I didn’t go into it with the right mindset, and I feel as though I’ve been playing catch-up ever since. I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure next semester is a different […]

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 […]
