First Year Diaries

What next?

My last exam is tomorrow and then I’ll no longer be a doe-eyed fresher 🤩 Thought I’ll write my last post while I am still technically a first year. So, it’s been an amazing experience here, working with some amazing students and learning from such great professors…. yeah, now it’s sounding like a graduation speech. […]


One week to go

Looks like I am not going to Tokyo this year, unless they have new category for those who can’t swim 🤣 My last exam is next week so not too stressed in this one. Just going through the study material and trying to make sense of it 😐 After the exams, the semester will be […]


2 down, 2 to go

Just finished my first exam of the season 😁 The auto marks in canvas were a measly 31.75 out of 120 and my first reaction at seeing them was flight mode – sell the car, pack up and move to Antarctica. But then, there was a shinning * in the end that said ‘some questions […]


One down, three to go

Lockdown’s back in town, baby! SWOTVAC’s here… Yeah, stating the obvious 😒 My transition to office has been put on hold and I am working from home in regular office hours, no pay cuts or shift losses and with enough time for studies. Got zero complains but just to make sure nobody guesses my age, […]


Pre-exam jitters

I have started studying for the exams now, trying to get my head around all the workshops that went bouncer when assignments were due. No wonder I scored so less! I can finally see why on going through them again 🙃 While I am focusing on exams, the remaining assignments are in Cat’s capable paws. […]


One test wonder

Yup, back to my ol’ 50% ways but turned out the marks will be corrected and there’s a chance I might have done better in this week’s test. Although my first thought on seeing the marks was, ‘The Low Marker’s Union Strikes Again’ 🤨 pun un-intended. I wasn’t the only one taking tests this week, […]


Exam dates are out!

I haven’t checked them yet, busy with assignments. Last few weeks of the Semester and the pressure is on. All the final assignments are reports in thousands and thousands of words 📝 Song of the comming weeks : 🎶 It’s only words and words are all I have, to take the marks away (from those […]


Over the moon

Got my first ever score of more than 60% in a test! Finally made it 🥳 Doesn’t matter if it counts for less than 5% in the finals or that it was a relatively easier test than the practice ones. Glad I could make it past the 60 mark. It’s just the kind of boost […]


Gotta make it through

If your are looking for something cheerful, feel free to skip this post. Things are pretty grim right now, the total number covid deaths in the extended family this month is now 2 and to top it, I have a test next week 😟 Not that I am diving deep into depression and flicking off […]
