In high school (how many blogs have I started with this phrase?!) we were able to borrow textbooks from the school each year, but at uni you have to have access to your own copy. Sometimes it's enough to go and read the library's copy whenever you need it (though "whenever you need it" may also turn out to be "whenever everyone else needs it" too and you may find the library stripped of copies), but usually you will end up buying several expensive textbooks each semester.

A cheaper alternative is to buy second hand textbooks, and you will see many ads on the back of toilet doors advertising cheap "barely used" (often true) textbooks but you have to get in FAST - I'm often too slow, but...

Here's a fun story about The First Time Asako Actually Got In Early Enough To Snag A Textbook Second Hand, and wow.

Talk about an adventure.

I only remember two things from Year 7 German. 'Das ist mein hamburger', which is quite self-explanatory, and the title of this blog, which very accurately describes the state of my computer at the moment. And is probably spelt all wrong. Go on Simon, correct me. You know you want to.

Isn't it sad when your whole life crashes down along with your computer?

I didn't think I was one of those people that were so attached to their phone/computer/iPod until one actually broke… Well the first step to getting better is admitting you have a problem, right?

Hi, I'm Asako. I'm a techno-holic, and here's my story.

There is nothing like backpacking through India to put a bit of perspective on life back in Sydney - especially when offers have just come out. Cold water showers, substituting holes in the ground for toilets and being accosted by beggars highlight the frugalness of the Indian lifestyle. It is even a little refreshing as I am forced to prioritise what are my needs as opposed to wants (not that I won't appreciate a nice hot stream of water on my back when I shower!) But enough of my rambling, I want to share with you an incredible story...

If, by virtue of finance or sheer lack of organisational abilities (as is the case with me, you should see how I handle bank tellers), you have decided not to go away over your holidays, there are a great many movies, sitcoms, and so on that can entertain you at any time of the day. And, while at first I’m sure the holidays seems like a great excuse to go out, party, and do this and that, there is only so long before the days start to merge into one, big, apathetic blob. So, in order to stave off boredom, I have a list of cinematic and television greats (in my opinion).

Coffee today, is what The Movies were in the 90s: the perfect event for socialising with friends, inviting someone for a casual date or going alone for some "Me time". University life revolves around coffee and the cafe scene.

Making the move from school to uni is already a big step and moving house is supposed to be the most stressful thing you'll do in life, after losing a loved one and getting a divorce. So when you have to do both of these things in the space of a few weeks, it's hectic. Here's a few tips regarding the ins and outs of sharehousing.

Sorry guys, this isn’t a blog about how I met a boy, cute as can be, over the summer. The title is just a response to a challenge I have received to making all my blog titles from songs (see if you can catch me out this year)...

This blog is about you!
