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 […]

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 […]

Procrastination Station

Question: Do you think Netflix deliberately releases new seasons right before exams? I mean, how am I supposed to study when there’s thirteen episodes of House of Cards just a few clicks away? The answer is, ‘I can’t’. Which is why I thought it best to get it over with on the weekend, you know, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Trying to Change Courses

This week has been a tough one. After my post last week, Brainy and I crunched the numbers and decided that something had to give with my uni workload. I’d taken on waaaaay too much, and if I wanted to survive the semester, something had to give. One of my topics was a real snooze […]

Study Time & Weighing Options

Given how much extra work our lecturers seem to be piling on this semester, and how much harder I’m finding it to get my head around all the things I’m supposed to be learning, I’ve been trying to work on my time management. I figure, if I want to do well (which I do), I […]

Up to Date?

After starting on the back hoof with my readings, I promised myself that I’d catch up and stay ahead for the whole semester. I didn’t think it’d be that difficult. I just needed discipline: make the time, do the work, no excuses. It felt like a solid plan. And I’m proud of myself because, miracles […]

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 […]

Exam Prep

At the start of the semester, I thought it was generous for the powers that be to set aside an entire week for exam revision. Now that it’s here, it doesn’t feel like anywhere near enough. I mean, how am I supposed to learn a semester’s worth of information in one week? Okay, not learn, […]
