Ahh, The Sound of Music! So happy and gay, which is exactly how I am feeling, it’s almost as if there is a miniature production of the classic playing out inside me right now. Can you guess why? Because I PASSED! Uni is over! I am graduating! Oh, it’s so joyful I just want to dance from rooftop to rooftop and scream at the top of my lungs. What I actually did when I found out was burst into tears. Tears of sheer relief. Tears of accomplishment. Tears of cheer and merriment and….well, exhaustion really. The weight of the last three years of study has finally been lifted from my shoulders. I’ve done it. And now, hidden amongst the feelings of glee and elatedness is a tiny swirl of trepidation.

Woah! What a whirlwind it’s been over the past few weeks. Exams have come and gone, preceded by a hurricane of last-minute late night cram sessions. I had planned on blogging after my last exam, but I’m still not quite sure how I got from that evening to this moment… the days and nights have blurred into one long social celebration of uni being over and the new beginnings that lay ahead.
The Jacaranda Trees are in full bloom. Do you know what that means? Read more
Sometimes, simply having an absolute mountain of work ahead of you is not quite enough to propel you into study mode; you need something a little more… enticing. Read more
A lot has been going on lately. It’s the busiest time of semester and things aren’t slowing down any time soon. Last night I saw my exam timetable and it sparked a small feeling of terror deep down inside. Basically, because seeing those four exams actually scheduled in for specific times made it all very real. And very scary. So it gave me the idea to document my feelings for the next 24 hours so I could share them with you guys, like a day inside my head. Can’t promise it will be an exciting day inside my head, but it is my busiest day at uni, so here we go. Buckle up, it’s a long one! Read more
Dearest Student Sharehouse readers,
My sincere apologies for my lack of contribution. It seems that only a moment ago I was in the throes of end-of-semester stress and now, in the blink of an eye, here we are at the end of Week 2 already. Not just any Week 2 either, my last Week 2 of ALL TIME! Read more
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.
I like to think of my first year at uni as time spent learning what not to do. They say that when you make mistakes you’re supposed to learn a lesson, and I’ve certainly learned a few so far. The result: I’m a better student for it. I didn’t have to learn all my lessons the hard way though, talking to people and making new buddies gave me access to a plethora of advice and nightmare stories, so I was clued in on a few things before some crucial mistake-making opportunities. Because I’m a firm believer in that old adage, ‘what goes around comes around’, I’d like to share a few of those key pieces of advice with you.
