  1. In Sickness and in Health

    What’s interesting about uni life, or even academic life starting from high school, is that those rush of deadlines come seemingly out of nowhere. For a few weeks, it seems almost like easy cruising, your expected to just go to lectures, take notes, go to tutorials and participate. However, in the course of 2-3 weeks […]

  2. Vulnerability … and Other Dirty Words (Aimee)

    Hello my esteemed blog-readers and fellow bloggites! Have you had a nice week? If your week has been a horrible, terrible, no-good, belly-up catastrophe… please accept a virtual hug to make you feel better! If not… take the hug anyway! Or a handshake… I’m not sure what level of intimacy you’re comfortable with… Moving on! […]

  3. Switcheroo

    Going into the second year is a significant step for any Uni student, with experiences varying for each of us. That being said, most probably won’t have as turbulent of a shift as mine. Switching courses proved to be a challenging ordeal, but I’m glad to say that I’ve actually transferred, as of the start of this semester, […]

  4. Turnitin Glitch? (Nicole)

    Imagine this, you have successfully written a 2000 word essay in two days, and submitted your essay on turnitin like a boss… while feeling mentally exhausted from formulating ideas into academic sentences. Then, two weeks later, you were excited on going to check your results on the LMS. Things started to go a little odd […]

  5. A Guide to Careers & Employment (Part 1) (Hiruni)

    I’m hoping that my neglecting to post for a while can be excused this time, because I’ve got some exciting resources for you to try! (Well, as exciting as writing resumes and planning your career can be…). If, like I did, you spent your whole high school career focusing on study rather than employment, the […]


    UGH one exam left and I’m horrified I’m going to fail the subject because it’s an extended response thingie wherein I have to pick 8 of 14 offered questions to answer, which means I have to be an expert in at the very least 8 lectures of a total of 24. I’m beginning to panic, […]

  7. Chapter Twenty-Two: The Mathematical Solution to Decision Making – At Last! (~jinghan)

    And so I went to see the academic advisor at the science student center after making an appointment- they were  only able to give me vague details, but directed me to see the Graduate School of Science. (That makes sense.) And so I totter up the Graduate School of Science, and am pleasantly surprised to be […]

  8. Chapter Eighteen: MAST30022 Decision Making (~jinghan)

    I get my MAST30022 Decisions Making assignment back (surprisingly within the week: this lecturer is on the ball!): full marks! It was a very short simple one that doesn’t count for too many marks but still a good sign! Except… I find it highly ironic that I am doing well in a subject call Decision Making when […]

  9. Home alone [Daniel]

    It’s strange to think that you do do better by yourself, that other people, friends for instance, are actually just holding you back. It’s weird and strange, and echoes thoughts I had a long time ago, thoughts filled with trepidation over the idea of moving in with a friend. Maybe those thoughts were true. I’m […]

  10. Sugar High. (Candy)

    “I can’t do this anymore.” The rich chocolate now leaving a horrible aftertaste in my mouth, I put down the hedgehog slice and tried to forget about the fact that I had, once again, induced a headache from excessive sugar consumption. Today – it was a white mocha and hedgehog slice from Plush Fish. I’ve […]
