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. […]

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 […]

Sorting Out Priorities

Good news, friends: the Group Assignment of Doom that I was complaining about last week is officially D.O.N.E.! I can’t tell you how relieved I am to have it out of my life! Now I’m free to focus on exams. The bad news is that I got a few assignments back and my marks aren’t […]

Getting Career Ready

Ewe-nice, Ramsey, and I had a blast filming our entries for the Wicked Problems competition last week! I’m crossing my hoofs that we win. But even if we don’t, Brainy loved the creative challenge, and it was good to do something with my friends other than hang out in a café. It also got me […]

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 […]

Procrastination Station

Question: Do you think Netflix deliberately releases new seasons right before exams? I mean, how am I supposed to study when there’s thirteen episodes of House of Cards just a few clicks away? The answer is, ‘I can’t’. Which is why I thought it best to get it over with on the weekend, you know, […]

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 […]

Sick on the Break!

Why is it that whenever I get a bit of downtime I always end up sick? That’s right, friends, I’ve caught the nasty bug that’s doing the rounds. So far my mid-semester break has largely consisted of early bedtimes, tissues and endless cups of herbal tea. The party never stops, I tells ya. It’s my […]

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 […]
