  1. 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 […]

  2. 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 […]

  4. Quarantine vibes – Hello from Sydney!

    This is my first post as one of the new first year diaries authors so big hello and virtual hug to you all! My nickname is Schnetti, I am from Germany and live in Luxembourg – but most importantly – fell in love with Australia (and an Aussie bloke) back in 2018 during my working […]

  5. Anyone out there?

    It’s late, my eyes itch, the assignment I pretended didn’t exist hasn’t disappeared and my pieces are not learning themselves.  But I did build a new veggie patch with my Dad today so that’s something.  I say built, but really there’s just a big, soon to be muddy, mess. Anyway.  The point is this page […]

  6. Just Another [Choose Your F-word Adjective] First Year Blogger

    Like all my essays, I don’t know how to start this post. I suppose that’s the hardest part of writing. You know what you want to write about, perhaps how to end the whole piece, and definitely the purpose of what you’re writing. But the start always gives me grief. However, I suppose I should […]

  7. 2020—eek

    Hello !!   It’s a pretty nifty thing to have been chosen to be a blogger for the First Year Diaries, though I can’t say that it didn’t hurt just a little to see that it’s no longer The Jaffy Diaries :(( but the sentiment remains, and here we are, in the middle of an […]

  9. Student accommodation in first year – do it!!!

    Hello friends, it’s been a while! Pretty much over two months – I do apologise. But I’m here to tell you guys something every up and coming first year should be made aware of. Now, full disclaimer, I understand that university accommodation isn’t within everyone’s price range. Some of the uni colleges are approx. $30 […]

  10. Ramblings of a night owl

      I live in Cheltenham and I have at least a painful 4 hours ride (to college and back) every day. Although I enjoy the view of lush green suburbs and striking street art covered walls through the journey, I’m growing numb to it. I mean, when you commute for a good 6 months like […]
