1. What kind of a study-er you are: school is one thing, but uni tests your motivation, procrastination and dedication. I, for example, found out I am NOT a study-er. I can’t sit down and study. If I don’t actively learn throughout the semester it means a whooole lot of OMG when it comes time for exams. So I chose a course that doesn’t have a lot of exams 😛
In 2015, I have the opportunity to be apart of the START QUT program, which basically means I’m in University a year early… but also doing grade 12 at the same time. This has proved to be pretty challenging in quite a few ways, however it’s also been extremely rewarding for me. So I decided why not share my experience with the program and start with a list of Pros and Cons! Read more

It’s that time of the year again. The time, I’m sure, that many students have been dreading. If you don’t know what this is, you soon will. When our future rests on good quality internet and, admittedly, on the hope that everybody else has forgotten what’s yet to come.

Bad habits. We all have them, but mine seem to be a tad excessive – and they seem to have grown in number throughout my time at uni. Particularly when I stay up late watching YouTube videos of bad talent show auditions… and I just know I’ll regret the next morning… Read more
It was brisk morning, early May this year. I was feeling exceedingly proud of myself because it was, the first time in my academic history that I was way ahead of the game on a lengthily worded assignment.

So, I followed the standard process, I hit SAVE, I walk away to grab a coffee, and check which friends could indulge me in a self-celebratory beverage. Hoorah. Read more
You’re in year 12 or even year 11 and almost half way through the year and you’re thinking, “Is university going to be for me?” Don’t worry because you’re not alone! The same thoughts went through my head in year 12 and during my Diploma of Fitness. Will I be able to do the work? How hard will it be? Will I find it enjoyable? These are normal questions to ask and are the right ones to ask.
This is me:
I’m sure I’m not the only one being swallowed by assignments right now. But it’s times like these we need to stay focused. We need to be disciplined. We need to be self-motivating. This is how I do that. With a flow chart.
Remember, you’re your number one cheerleader. Your number one motivator. The only one who can complete those assignments is you. You can do it. Stay focused. Don’t get distracted. Go with the flow[chart].
