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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Exams: Hanging in There

Me: What are we doing tonight, Brainy? Brainy: The same thing we do every night, Sheepy: studying. Ugh. I am so done with studying! Will exams never end? I swear, when this is all over, I’m heading straight to the beach. Or maybe I’ll go see a movie in the middle of the day, just […]

Exams: Staying Positive

I was feeling pretty down after my first exam. I think I probably did well enough to pass, but not by much. I’m trying not to let it get to me. Ewe-nice has been a big help. I texted her after the exam and told her it hadn’t gone well. We were supposed to meet […]
