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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Group Assignments – Ugh!

It is a truth universally acknowledged that for every group assignment there’s one group member who doesn’t pull their weight. For our final big assignment before exams that group member is me, and I feel incredibly sheepish about it. Our (self-appointed) group leader keeps organising meetings to discuss what we’ve done so far, but because […]

Exam Home Stretch…

My final exam is tomorrow and I couldn’t be happier! This semester has been tough—way tougher than I expected. I didn’t go into it with the right mindset, and I feel as though I’ve been playing catch-up ever since. I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure next semester is a different […]

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 […]
