Busy Bee (Bella)

Hi readers!
Sorry for the long time, and no see (or, should I say, read)! I’ve been really busy with my internship and classes, and am excited to share with you all what I’ve been up to.

This semester, I’m taking my two required Psychology subjects, Cognitive Psychology and Personality and Social Psychology. We got to learn about lineups in the criminal justice system for our Cognitive Psychology report, which was super cool! I can’t believe that next year, it’s already time to take capstone subjects. Where did the time go!?… Although, I will be doing a four year degree as I intend to apply for a Diploma in French! Yay for more uni, I just love the campus life, volunteering and getting coffee every day. Mmm, coffee….

My other subject this semester is my dance breadth at the VCA campus. I love going there – dancing has always been a hobby of mine. Even though I’m not really built to be a dancer, I love being on stage and having fun with it!

Why only three subjects, you ask? Well, for those who have been keeping updated (thank you! :)) – I just finished an internship in consulting! I had the best time. I really recommend internships to everyone, as it is a great way to get some experience during your undergrad to help make the choice for the workforce/postgrad. I was hoping to venture into postgrad at the Melbourne Business School, and my experience has made me sure of my decision.

Another exciting thing that happened this semester: I was a finalist in the M-ASS (Melbourne Arts Students’ Society) Writing Competition! I was a bit nervous about entering my piece, but I thought ‘what have I got to lose?’ and was so excited to be chosen as one of the ten finalists out of 100 amazing entries. Thanks, M-ASS 🙂

I can’t believe we’ve only got two weeks left of semester (and I still have to do a debate, presentation, essay and performance – yikes!). AS IF I’ve been at uni for two years already… as they say, time flies when you’re having fun! I’m looking forward to finishing my exams and enjoying holidayyyyys!

Both of my exams are at 8:30am this semester. While it is hard getting up early sometimes (I live really far out from the city) I feel like I work best in the morning, and then I get the whole day afterwards to study for the next exam (read: shop and get coffee). Also, I don’t have too much time to get nervous because I’m still waking up, haha. What is your exam timetable like?

Talk soon!

Bella 🙂

    I’m pleased to hear how valuable your internship was for you – what a great way to learn more about your future career options.
