Free at Last!

I’m freeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! I sat my supplementary exam yesterday, and I think it went okay. Actually, I’m pretty sure I nailed it. Seeing the uni counsellor the week before was the boost I needed to get me through. Not that the past week has been easy. Study always feels like a slog, even when it’s going […]

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. […]

In Limbo

I’m in limbo! This semester just will not end! You know how I was freaking out about my first exam? Well, it’s official: I messed up. I got an email from my topic coordinator yesterday. She’s already marked the exams and spoiler alert: I failed. Forty-eight per cent. FORTY-EIGHT! I was so close!!! The good […]

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 […]

Mental Health Awareness Week 2017

That means finding the people and resources available to help you manage your wellbeing. Normally, my family are my biggest source of support, but since Mum’s accident a […]

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. With everything that’s been going on at home and the way I’ve been going back and forth between studying in the city and helping my family back on the farm, I’ve […]

Before the Exam…

My first exam is tomorrow and I’m a bundle of nerves. My plan to knuckle down and revise only sort-of came to fruition. On the plus side, I’ve at least gone over all the material my lecturer said would be in the exam. I revisited my notes and large sections of our set readings and […]

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 […]

Things Start to Slip…

I’m slipping into bad habits again. I finally submitted that essay I’d overlooked, but it was a week late and I’m going to lose a bunch of marks. Also, it wasn’t my best work. I just can’t believe I dropped the ball like that! Brainy’s having trouble moving on. I keep dwelling on how it’s […]

Deadlines?!

By Aries wool, this week has been frustrating! All I wanted was one teeny, tiny extension. But with the amount of bother I’ve been through, you’d think I was after something huge, like for the uni to install a chocolate fountain outside the library. Hmm, I wonder who I speak to about that… Anyhoo, I […]
