1. A Change of Pace (Hiruni)

    It’s week 4 and I am officially in panic mode, and if past semesters are anything to go by this will last throughout the semester until the end of the last exam :/ Without even touching on the fact that a quarter of the semester has dwindled away, I thought I’d take the opportunity to […]


  2. Different this Time Around? (Hiruni)

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! Ahem, well, it’s not my actual birthday but semester 2 marks my 1 year anniversary of blogging with First_Year@Unimelb and Back for Seconds.

The University offered three […]

    After a hectic exam period and an almost non-existent vacation due to my summer subject (more on that later), it feels great to get back into blogging, especially if it means venting to all my readers! Part of getting my life back on track meant that I had to cancel some of my vacation time […]
