The early mornings are taking their tolls, that’s probably the only certainty in this week… WEEK 13!

My biological clock – that thing inside of you that knows that its dinner time, knows when your favourite show is coming on tv, and even reminds you that it is time to go to sleep. I’m just wondering, has anyone seen mine?

My two greatest loves…at the same time!!!

I’m sooooooo excited!!! i don’t know if you guys have heard about it but there’s gonna be a concert on the Go Between Bridge on the 25th on June. The line-up is awesome!! very chilled out and incredibly cool:

Angus and Julia Stone, Robert Forster (from the go-betweens), Josh Pyke, Bob Evans, Yves Klein Blue and The John Steel Singers.

So i’m a new fan of Angus and Julia Stone ever since i stole my sisters ipod last week and listened to ‘Just a Boy’ at least a thousand times. But what i’m most excited for is my two greatest loves, Josh Pyke and Bob Evans, i’m so stoked they’re both playing at the same concert. I really can’t wait!! so that’s what i’m looking forward to, while i’m sitting here studying for my final exams…..25th of June please come soon!!

I think I’ll go out tonight… LOL jk, I’m studying Architecture

Another Saturday night stuck inside watching old ‘The OC’ episodes and snacking on chocolate freckles and M&M’s.  My alarm interrupts my thoughts, but this time the repetitive beep isn’t to wake me up.  It’s 3am and this is an indication it’s time for me to go to sleep.  I reluctantly put down my copic marker, shut down my laptop and follow the maze of yellow trace scattered on my floor to find my bed.  I wonder if next weekend I’ll actually see my friends, but who am I kidding, my parents have a better social life than I do

The wonderful world of living arrangements

Thinking of moving out? Read this first!

One of the most daunting things about beginning university, whether you’ve just left high school or have been out for a few years, is considering where you’ll live when you begin your studies. Make no mistake, when done right, student life can be the greatest years of your life. However, it can also be a living hell if you fall behind on your classes, isolate yourself, stop going to class, and don’t take care of yourself in general. And a big part of that is where you’re staying.

You have to think about your living arrangements. Where are you going to stay? Are you going to keep living with your parents, or move out and give the living independent thing a shot? Read more

How to build a hot tub time machine…or Richard’s epic tips for starting university, one of the two

Hey guys, welcome to QUT!

If you’re a first year, by now, you’re almost done with your first semester and would have settled in somewhat to the ups and downs of uni life. This is the point in time where all your final assessments seem to be due and the monstrous end-of-semester exams are rearing their ugly head around the corner. Avoid tearing out your hair, and learn to love caffeine. It is a student’s best friend.

Life Bites Harder During Week 10/11

Currently, the time is 9:42pm on a Friday night. Today is the 14th day of May, 2010.

I’m not writing this blog on my mobile internet from a Nightclub in the Valley, I’m actually at home where I am supposed to be doing an assignment. I trust that you won’t tell anyone okay? So here I am thinking, reflecting on where I am currently at in my semester, and I’ve realised it is Week 10 borderline Week 11. That probably means jack all to you, but I thought you would find this insight interesting.

Who doesn’t like a little adventure?

Hope you’re all enjoying your visit at the QUT Sharehouse. I don’t want this blog to be just me ranting on and on about stuff that you don’t wanna hear about so here’s your chance to be heard. I want to tell you about my experiences but I also want to use this blog as an opportunity for adventure. Whether it’s finding the best coffee shop for a quick break or a great hidden store that I’ve completely missed, I want to hear from all of you.

Welcome to zombieland, you sure will have a dreamy time here!

I’m writing this post on the last city cat home, it’s 12:20am, and I feel zombified. I would have stayed on campus to do more work, but didn’t want to walk home by myself at 2am… or fork out the money for a cab. So I’m drifting down river and feeling all kinds of confused.

“It was the pipes, Sir.”

My shower is slowly turning into a bath. As in, the bottom of the shower is literally filling up with water every time any of us try to use it. It does drain away, eventually, so that it’s really very easy to ignore for an extended period of time. And that, to be honest, is probably the worst part. If, like me, you’re the kind of person who relies on steaming hot water to transform you into a rational human being every morning, and in your hazy state you forget all about it, you’ll end up flooding the bathroom.
