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 […]

Making Tough Decisions

Friends, it’s been another rough week. Mum’s still in hospital and I’ve been staying on the farm with the family so that I can help out and be close to her. The good news is that she’s definitely going to be okay, which has us all breathing epic sighs of relief. The bad news is […]

When Things Go Wrong

I jinxed myself when I wrote that this semester was off to a flying start. What I wouldn’t give to rewind back to when my biggest worry was whether or not I’d manage to get my readings done before my tutes! I know none of what’s happened in the past week is my fault, but […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
