June 2007

A lone female figure sits hunched over the old oak desk, wrapped in blankets to make up for the lack of heating. Having given up on the previous pursuit of staring into space, she now taps away in an apparently productive manner.

Time – 2:47 am
Cups of tea – 7 (and counting)
Times I’ve checked Facebook today – 6 (very good!)
‘Oh no! A chipped nail... better file it’ – twice
Meals – 1 ½ (poor nutrition, tut tut)
Cans of ‘Mother’ (a fantastic Red Bull substitute) – 1

My first semester at Uni is done. And, somewhat surprisingly, I am still alive, with a full set of limbs and vital organs still intact. Even more surprisingly, I’m going back for another one in August. The time seems ripe for a good old heart-to-heart, blogger to blogee. And so, despite running the risk of being typecast as some kind of “philosophical list-maker”, I felt it would be appropriate to pass on some of my hard-earned first year wisdom.

Snow patrol

Who would have thought that our government is so wonderful. Well, at least working for the government has some great perks. I get paid to participate in relevant courses to my job (and it's highly encouraged). Work stays at work and 4:30pm onwards is my time. I get one day off a month to do as a I please just because I work an extra 1/2 hour a day. I earn an extra $7.50 a fortnight for laundry allowance. Plus I am entitled to snow leave.....

For one of my first exams, one of my exam rooms was somewhere I’d never heard of, so I toddled along to the Student Centre where they gave me...

The examination guide!!!

One of the cool things about uni is actually finishing your degree and graduating. It's a chique little ceremony full of pomp and tradition, which made me laugh and excited at the same time.

Today, I wore that silly little hat too...

Don’t ask me how we got onto the topic of escaping from dangerous animals. All I know is that should I ever run into a shark, crocodile, or wombat, I’ll have a slim chance at survival. For those of you now burning with curiosity: poke it in the eyes, run in zigzags, and climb a tree, respectively.

Part time work. Where would we be without it? In the past six years I've been a barista, child minder, kitchen hand, waitress, bar girl, administrator and picture framer. These hours have gone a long way to allaying financial responsibilities, maintaining lifestyle and fostering dreams of travel. Apart from the obvious monetary incentives, jobs whilst at school and uni have exposed me to new people, skills and ways of
experiencing the world.

One problem. I have completely neglected the value of good old fashioned industry related work experience.
