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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Say Goodbye to 2016!

Friends, it’s official: we survived the semester. Huzzah for us! *Blasts Queen’s ‘We are the Champions’ at full volume and sways to the music.* It really doesn’t seem that long ago that I was getting lost on my way to lectures, freaking out over my first assignment, and wondering if I’d ever make any friends. […]

What now…?

After my last post, I was really excited to find some activities to give me and Brainy a challenge over the summer. I did some research, and I think I’m going to sign up for a cooking class. It’s high time I learned to make something other than cheese toasties! My other big goal for […]

Planning for the Holidays

My big plan for the holidays was to pop my beach umbrella, roll out my towel and stretch out on the sand for the summer. After these last few hectic months, it seemed like a solid strategy. Brainy needed a break. I needed a break. So on Monday, that’s exactly what I did. And it […]

Exams are Over! Time to Celebrate!

Freedom is ours! These last few weeks have been tough, but we made it! For a while there, it really felt as though exams would never end. I had my last one on Friday, and watching the clock run down the final few minutes was absolute torture. I was trying to be diligent and check […]

Good Mental Health. Think about it.

I’m learning so much this week! And not just in class, either. I’ve been getting involved with Mental Health Awareness Week and discovering how I can better ‘value my mind’ and ‘thrive through connection’. I’ve been tuning into ABC’s Mental As 2, a series of documentaries exploring different aspects of mental health. The series runs […]

Mental Health Awareness Week 2016

I want to kick off this post with a big thank you to everyone who stopped by Hub Central on Thursday and Friday last week to say hi to me and Brainy and share their good thoughts and positive messages on the #ValueYourMind boards. It was fantabulous to meet you all! This week, if you’re […]
