Seeking Help to Plan Ahead

Preparing for my supplementary exam has left me woolly headed. 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 […]

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 […]

Caring for Self and Others

The biggest lesson I’ve learned so far this semester has nothing to do with anything my lecturers and tutors have spoken about in class.

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 […]

Exam Stress

Remember how last week I was all: ‘Exam revision is going well! I’ve totally got this’? This week, not so much. My first exam is TOMORROW and I am FREAKING OUT.

End of Semester Stress!

When it rains, it pours, am I right? I’m still super busy with assignments but I also need to start revising for exams. The good news is that I’m in a much better headspace than I was this time last week, when I was flat-out panicking. Oddly enough, the reason I’m feeling better is that […]

How to Cope

Sorry I haven’t posted lately. Remember in my last post how I was super stressed about all the uni work I had to do? Yeah. That. It turns out I wasn’t alone, either. Ewe-nice has been freaking out too. She has a part-time job at a restaurant in the city. They’ve been short staffed, so […]
