  1. 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. […]

  2. Pass or …

    Feels kinda weird with no one else posting anything, but I’ll do it anyways. Results haven’t been declared yet. I suppose it’s this week, not quite sure that I am out of the woods 🤞 The Career Bootcamp is half way through and the things I am learning are totally amazing. Also makes me realize […]

  3. Study another day

    With no lectures and tutorials this week, I am spending most of my time at the Career and Employability department (virtually, of course), picking their brains on resumes, jobs and internships. The number of times I have been there, I am sure I’ll get a job as their ‘Official Doorstopper’, if nothing else 😜 Not […]

  4. 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 […]

  5. Coming Home

    Lectures, Orientation Week, and student theatre – it’s was all online. It’s like the whole world took a massive Swot Vac and we had to learn the basics again. Everything was transported online, and almost overnight our same-same lives became very different. Studying at my new virtual learning hub – The University of Melbourne, feels […]

  6. Not my first Rodeo

    This week’s been a rollercoaster – emotionally, academically and of course, me being me, monetarily 🤣 Made some tough calls, quite literally 🤪 and had some setbacks but so far, no regrets. Not really my first time handling losses in life. Withdrew from subjects that I found too tough, and that means Cat will now […]

  7. Dear Diary, here’s my resume boosters

    Hey hey everyone! Sorry, it has been so long since my last post. Right now my life is like a cauldron and its brewing with 3 assignments per week, 20 contact hours and 12 hours of part-time work. Nevertheless, I’m here (finally) to discuss what I do in my spare time. But beware, this is […]

  8. I’m not a journalist

    Hello sweet potatoes! Semester 2 has officially begun (three weeks ago, actually). Woo! I’m doing my Masters in Global Media Communication and my entire family and extended relatives believe I’m gonna be a journalist one day and appear on TV shows. Wha- I don’t try to correct them anymore. My family has zero idea about […]

  9. Feeling Positive

    After receiving my results for Semester 1 a few weeks ago I guess I can officially claim that “I am an Arts student”! This semester I will be going down to three (from the normal four) subjects in order to be able to work and study at the same time. I am trying my best […]

  10. Screenwriting: the vaguest, most obscure course at the University of Melbourne

    Here it is folks, what you’ve all been waiting for – a guide to the most obscure course offered at the University of Melbourne! I wish I was joking.   When people ask what I’m studying, the reactions all vary. Some think it’s awesome – some ask me what on Earth screenwriting actually is. No […]
