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 […]

Mental Health Awareness Week 2017

Did you know that last week was Mental Health Awareness Week? This year the theme was ‘be the champion of your mental health – find your team’. 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 […]

Student Health & Wellbeing Forum

I can’t believe we’re on mid-semester break already! Honestly, it couldn’t have come at a better time—I really need a few weeks off classes to catch up on my work and get myself sorted for the rest of the semester. Those of you who have been following along will know I’ve had a bit of […]

Eating Better for a Better Ewe

I’m slowly getting my life back together and settling into a new routine. Things at home are still difficult, but Mum’s gradually getting better and Dad seems to have a handle on what needs doing, even if he’s still struggling to get it all done. He says that having me around more has been a […]

Taking Charge and Feeling Better

This week’s been a big one. Tomorrow, 31 August, is Census Date and I’ve had to make some tough decisions about the rest of the semester. My family have been urging me to stick with my studies, but I know they could really use my help around the house and the farm while Mum’s recuperating […]

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 […]

Holidays!!!

Friends, a week-and-a-half on the farm with the fam has done me a world of good! While I love the hustle and bustle of city life (and the amazing cafes and dessert bars), I’m definitely still a country kid at heart. On days when it hasn’t been raining, it’s been great to spend time outdoors […]

The Semester is Over!

Holidaaaay! Celebraaaate! Am I right, friends, or am I right? I’m so thrilled we’ve made it through semester one. The minute I finished my final exam a huge load lifted—like I’d just been shorn. It was such a relief. And now we get to enjoy three whole weeks of study-free awesome. I know Brainy can […]
