  1. Somber effect

    Cat’s trip to the doctor’s will continue for a while, glad that she is finally getting the right treatment and I can afford them! Took me a very long time to get both for her. I totally ♥️ my job Her health hasn’t affected her interest in the studies in the least and she is […]

  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. Back to the grind

    I am over the holidays and everything else that I was so caught up in last week, now it’s study time. Given that Cat is busy with her Vet visits, I am having to fix the assignments myself and I even have to sit through the lectures alone 😵 She’ll be ok by next week, […]

  4. Holidays are still here

    Yup, they are still here. Had the most amazing time last weekend doing nothing 😁 A much needed respite from the meetings and etc etc etc, you get the idea. The most complex decision I had to make was if I wanted to make cup noodles for lunch or stick to my burritos 🌯 Didn’t […]

  5. Holidays are here

    Making progress in my swimming classes but I am in no danger of qualifying for the Olympics anytime soon 🤣 I am sure you are wondering how things get done when I spend my time lounging in the pool and chatting by the coffee machine at work. Yup, it’s Cat. She diligently attends workshops, sits […]

Sipping flat whites. Making coffee with the coffee machine at work. Started a new job. Attended a job interview. Drinking matcha lattes. Texting old […]

  7. So it begins!

    Was feeling lucky that my work schedule had worked out to allow me enough time to relax and finish studies… until I saw the tutorials schedule with tracked attendance and participation, all in work hours 🙇‍♀️  Can’t even drop the subject as it’s mandatory before the project next semester. Now I’ll have to accomplish double […]

  8. 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 […]

  9. Lockup woes

    They are harder for me than most people as I don’t have a family here and I end up being locked up in my room, not seeing humans for days, sometimes weeks on end. Coupled with restrictions on food that doesn’t last a whole week, closed libraries, limited recreation, no outdoor exercise for a dozen […]

  10. Buckling up

    Not much Uni-related going on for me this week. Did not get selected for back-to-campus job I had applied for at Uni or the Grad internship with GSA, so not much involved in start of the year activities 🙅‍♀️ I’ll be attending the orientation sessions I can (online 🥴) Heard the on-campus ones gave students […]
