  1. School days

    It’s another day in the classroom. As you may recall, I’m studying my Master in Education. I’m currently doing casual relief teaching, which involves teaching/supervising students in a school. It’s good being in the classroom, especially when you’re studying, because you’re able to apply what you’re learning and see the visible benefit of your studies. […]


  2. Dear Dreamer

    This is an excerpt of my made-up diary: Dear Dreamer, Did you really think that you would become a University of Melbourne blogger? You put it out there into the universe, and you did it. You’re an official blogger for ‘The First Year Diaries’, you should be proud of yourself. Did you really think that […]


  3. Some of my favourite things…

    Something different for today’s post, a list. And everyone loves a good list. This list is what I’ve been up to lately. Enjoy! Studying. Submitting assignments before time. Drinking bubble tea. Sipping flat whites. Making coffee with the coffee machine at work. Started a new job. Attended a job interview. Drinking matcha lattes. Texting old […]


  4. Hello! A new semester is now upon us, and the new year has already begun. Looking forward to a new year picnic at Carlton Gardens with the Graduate Education Society. Seminars have already started and I’ve already submitted two assignments early. Feeling motivated, at least to study, hope it lasts! Hope you’re enjoying some new […]


  5. 2020 vision and a little hindsight

    In defence of this year, 2020 has been a year of growth, of opportunity and of experience. The year, like many other catastrophic world events, has humbled us and brought us together to remember the important elements of life. It has long been touted as the most important aspect to one’s life, and that is […]


  6. The sun’s come out to play

    The sun, the glorious sun has come out to play, to lighten our Christmas period with warmth and festivities. I can’t really think of much to write in this blog. I’ve read, y’alls reflection on 2020 posts and think they were great. As for me, I’ve too finalised my enrolment and soon I imagine I […]


  7. The flat white

    If you enjoy living in Melbourne, you’re probably a coffee drinker. Coffee drinking is a quintessential part of life and an important part of student life aka caffeine hit to keep you awake during early morning lectures. So turn on the chill, café music and let’s enjoy the summer holidays. They’re nearly officially here and […]


  8. Formula H1 Racing

    I would have loved to have been a Formula 1 racing car driver, leaning into those curves around the sharp bends in the track and speeding along the straights. Instead, I became a lawyer and then a teacher. I’ve had a number of different jobs, sometimes after one contract ends, I feel like calling out […]


  9. From Passes to Honours, and everything in between

    Honour the work that you’ve done so far. Draw strength from your failures and use momentum to create your next masterpiece. Enjoy the rhythm of working, of studying, of writing assignments. Write essays when you feel inspired, when the words pour forth from you effortlessly. Edit papers in quiet solitude and reveal the gems in […]


  10. Let it be a beautiful mess

    “It’s a beautiful day”,  (U2). It’s Monday, the day that signals new beginnings, a new week and renewed commitment to our dreams and for some, diets. In our new world, the world’s been rewritten, reinvented, and reimagined. The world seems a quieter place, at least for me. I move slowly about the world, practically on […]
