Hey everyone! This is my first post for First_year@UniMelb so I thought I’d introduce myself! My name’s Tharidi and I’m studying a Bachelor of Arts. I’m a domestic student hailing from Melbourne but I’m just as unfamiliar with the term “uni life” and what it entails as any other, so you can expect plenty of posts investigating what exactly I’m supposed to be getting up to when I’m not in class! There’s a lot to experience at Melbourne Uni, which means there’s a lot for me to discover and report back to you!
My subjects revolve around my interests which are: writing, reading and watching movies, so you’ll probably find a lot of my posts detailing my advice/experience with: 20-page readings (why is this a thing???), writing 1000-word essays (the night before the due date? Hah! Of course not…) and just generally developing my skills (also known as: Making It Look Like You’re Being Productive When You Don’t Have Tests Or Exams).
I’ll admit, having watched several American chick flicks and the like, my expectations of uni life have been thoroughly crushed. I haven’t seen any throwing of a frisbee on South Lawn or met the classic frat guy/sorority girl. BUT! I figure some things are universal, like all the nerves and anticipation that come with meeting new people, joining clubs, and trying to figure out who you are. Hopefully my posts can give you a little idea on what it’s really like to be a first year at Melbourne Uni. I don’t know what’s in store for me this year, but I’m excited to have you along for the ride!
LET THE BLOGGING COMMENCE!!!
