  1. Post Mid Sem Break Check In Check Out

    (or, a series of unrelated observations) It’s Pepper! You would not believe the amount of half-written blog drafts I have sitting around collecting dust already. It seems I’ve been yearning for a writing project, and now that I have one, I’m so pleased that I don’t know what to do with myself. Alas.  We’ve just […]

  2. To be understood?

    I’m putting off revising Linear Algebra in favour of pacing my room like a weather-beaten 53-year-old detective. I’ve been reflecting on the year every single waking moment, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s been a fascinating year; a lot of things, ranging from elating to excruciating, were not on my bingo card. So, […]

  3. Booking plane tickets back home

    Hey everyone, here’s my spiel for the day. To all the international students and Australians who have to take a plane back home, DO NOT BOOK THEM UNTIL YOU KNOW YOUR EXAM SCHEDULE!!!!! I speak from experience. Not knowing that my exams would be the first three days of the exam period 🤯, I naively […]

  4. Save your files.

    I spent two and a half hours doing a Computing practice exam. I went away to wash the dishes and came back to a blank paper. I forgot to save — a cardinal sin for a programmer. It’s not too bad because the thought process was what mainly took up all the time, but of […]

  5. Get through this week challenge

    Is it just me or has this week been SO. LONG. I swear it’s been Thursday for three days already and I’m going insane. I’ve been working my butt off to try and balance having a social life and getting grades that won’t make my parents fly over here and drag my back to the […]

  6. Kia ora/Xin chao, it’s Elizabeth!

    I still have much nostalgia for the places I’ve lived in before and I occasionally get melancholic in this new city. But sometimes, I could almost feel the nostalgia of the moment just before. That’s one of the many feelings that keep me rolling.

  7. Tank Engine

    Hi everyone, I am the hidden character that is the last to be revealed. My pseudonym (which is my English name) is Thomas. My classmates back when I was in school used to call me tank engine. I must admit that I randomly chose the name around 8 years old when I saw a steam […]

    Now playing: The Paper Kites – On the Train Ride Home ↺ |◁ II ▷| ♡ Happy Sunday! It’s been a while >v< How has everyone been? I’m feeling beyond ecstatic knowing that mid-sem break is just round the corner! It has been an eventful week for me, filled with finishing assessments, connecting with family, […]

  9. Clubs are the best way to make friends

    I’ve joined so many clubs at university and it’s literally saved my post-covid loneliness! So many clubs plan weekly meetups (sometimes even involving free food!!! Who could say no to that?) and it’s such an amazing way to meet likeminded people and friends! I’ve joined a couple of club committees it’s been so nice to […]

  10. Week 6: A-Tisket, A-Tasket

    Now playing: Anthony Lazaro – Life could be so simple ↺ |◁ II ▷| ♡   As someone who has pictured themselves in a great deal of eccentric situations (like having hands for feet and feet for hands), I never once pictured myself writing a blog post, so here we go!! Here’s a quick little […]
