TAG: success


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 […]

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 […]

Getting Career Ready

Ewe-nice, Ramsey, and I had a blast filming our entries for the Wicked Problems competition last week! I’m crossing my hoofs that we win. But even if we don’t, Brainy loved the creative challenge, and it was good to do something with my friends other than hang out in a café. It also got me […]

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. […]

Getting Geared Up for Semester Two

The semester break seems to have flown by! Can you believe that we’ll be back at uni this time next week? I’m actually really looking forward to it. I’ve had a great time catching up with family and friends over the holidays, and Brainy’s had plenty of R and R. I was feeling pretty down […]

Get Ready. Get Set…

I’ve been having a ball at O’Week! Being a Peer Mentor has been a real confidence boost. Turns out I know more about Adelaide and the Uni than I thought, and I’ve met some fascinating people, too! It’s also encouraged me to be more involved in O’Week, and all the info. seminars and activities have got […]

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 […]

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. Hopefully, it’s just because it’s the first one and the rest won’t be so daunting. I’ve been trying to work through some final revision […]

Exams- sorry – have to start talking about them sometime

With university examinations approaching, many students will be thinking about the best way to study and get on top of all the material they have covered during the semester.  For some that means studying alone, for others group work is best, or perhaps a bit of both. When I went to university, I was one […]

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 […]
