The Inside Word 2016

The infamous gap year.

Let's talk about the infamous gap year. I'm realising that college students are almost halfway through the school year which means the pressure is on. If you're in your final year of college you've already started thinking about the options you have for next year....

Outta Here at 100km/h

...quite literally, I must say! Did a short road trip with my mate back down home to Welly, there was absolutely no way I could've carried even half the amount of stuff I've acquired with me on a plane. Sadly, not only did I have to leave the beautiful orange walls...

Never Have I Ever

I know, that’s the title of the popular and revealing game. However, what 'never have I ever’ is about is honesty - something which I am about to provide you with in regard to university. The first year is a breeze for some, a horror for others. For most, you’ll...

Eating (…Exploring) Auckland

I’m sittin’ here in the smaller-than-expected Nelson Airport waiting for my ride. There are birds chirping right in front of me, that’s not a sight I often see in Wellington or Auckland airports. The flight was already short to begin with but as soon as I hit the...

Adios amigos

Hello dear readers, That’s the last time I get to say that. I’ve finished exams, moved out of Uni Hall, and am now back in Christchurch. First year has come to an end; this is it, folks. A welcome respite from exam study came with my birthday at the beginning of...

Bye Bye Biomed

Hey fam, It’s mad to think this is my last blog of the year. I am leaving Unihall today and consequently have started to get all the feels…CUE THE DMB!!! (deep meaningful blog). I did it…first year biomed is done! On the one hand I am relieved and happy. It’s been...

End of days

I've officially finished my first year and what a year it has been. Believe me when I say I did  try to brainstorm different topics for my final blog but ultimately I decided you can't go wrong with reviewing the year. A year in review of the craziest, most...

Holiday Job Hunt!

So it is exam time and there seems like a million things that need to be done before I finish uni for the year! As if it isn't stressful enough just worrying about studying for my exams and passing with flying colours, I am also faced with the questions... What am...

Oh darling, please have mercy on me;

'Please have mercy on me Take it easy on my heart.' That was the plea I uttered as 1st Nov rolled around. I kicked off my shoes in the exam hall and sat cross-legged on my seat, waiting for the invigilator to click the 'START' button. It had been a gruelling week....

Over-stressed but still well dressed

The exam period has hit as hard as a derailed train. Not only did I have all four exams in the space of one week (with one still to go – tomorrow), they have all been potential travesties. Before the exam period, Dionysus – God of wine, decided to shine heavily...

Nearly at the Finish Line

Oh it’s the most wonderful time of the year! With students curled up crying And everyone telling you to study hard It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Hello again, exams! It feels like yesterday that I was talking to you! What are you doing here? Wait, what?...

Repetition

Life is hard when it's repetitive... I am currently in the middle of exams and have promised myself I would get an "early night" but it is 10.47pm and I have just finished doing my health psychology readings. I had my first exam on Thursday and unlike last semester...

Bamboo Flutes and Virginia Woolf

Bring out the tissues: this will be my second-to-last post on this blog. No, that isn’t tragic violin music playing in the background. These aren’t real tears. I’m just chopping onions... In the spirit of wrapping things up, this is gonna be a review of two of my...

Blogger Perks & UH Apartments

Year 13 was one insane year– one won’t be quite like it again. Sorry to hit hard with the first line but you definitely go through those times when you’ve got poor time management and typing up a storm at 3am. But of course, uni hype was at an all-time high towards...
