  1. What I Have Learnt So Far

    Being a first year opens up a new chapter in life, and I have learnt a lot of things about uni and life in general. Such as.. 1. Things can get crazy You have no idea how it is hectic for first years. It’s like them saying, “Here’s all your assignments, readings, studying, practising, things […]

  2. Things that Music Students Say/Hear

    I feel a little down, and trying to survive this semester till mid semester break. Normally, I would write a mid semester summary, and other things, but I don’t think I’m in the right state to do so. So, here’s a funny post, and hopefully it makes people’s day. Note: I swear a lot in […]

  3. Don't Stop The Music (Bella)

    Hey! While it is easy to get caught up in the whirlwind that is mid-sems, readings and assignments, it’s important to remember that there are some ways to relax and take a break from study. Which is one of the reasons why I went to… ARTS BALL! Hosted by M-ASS, the Arts Students’ Society, and […]

  4. Mid-Semester Update (Bella)

    Hey readers! Yes, I’m being optimistic – we still have Week 6 to go until we are halfway through. However, I haven’t updated in a while – for which I do apologise. Here’s what I’ve been up to recently… PUPPIES AT UNI! Yes, you read that correctly. The University organised puppies to come to uni […]

  5. A Cyclist's Perspective

    This semester, I had an interesting start to uni. In first week, I popped a pretty bad blister during my Netball match, that I couldn’t even walk properly for first week of uni. So, I had to use crutches, because it was that bad. Hahaha. Then in the second week of uni, I recently was […]

  6. Leave of absence

    Taking a leave of absence from University can happen for many reasons. In O-Week, I met a girl who had taken a year off to travel around South America and she said that it was the best thing that she ever did! However, I never considered I would do the same. One week ago I […]

  7. Review: Uni Events (Bella)

    Hey all! I’ve been lucky enough to attend quite a few uni events this semester, and I think they are a great way to catch up with friends and meet new people 🙂 My favourite event I attended would have to be the Paint and Glow party, run by M-ASS (the arts student society here […]

  8. Reflecting Back in the Past Part 1

    When I was waiting for my examiners to call me into the examination room, I was focused on giving myself one motivating speech then there was this question I asked myself, “HOW THE HECK DID I GET THIS FAR?”. “You can do this Nicole. You’ve worked so hard for this.” “YES I CAN DO THIS! Oh […]

  9. FREEEEDOM (Bella)

    Hey everyone! Yesterday I had my last exam for business law! Which means today I’m free! Yaaaaaay! I have been waiting for this day for so long… my last exam was pretty late (I think it was the second last day of the exam period), so I have been sitting sadly studying for a week […]


    Today marks the end of my first semester of uni. I’ve never been this proud in my life ever, more than surviving Year 12. When I stepped outside, feeling satisfied with my last exam (technical exam for music), I felt that sense of relief, that happiness of finishing with Semester One. It all seems to associate […]
