August 2007

With less than two months till the completion of my degree (arggghhh!) my mind is awash with decisions, choices & opportunities. This is one of those crucial turning points where your life changes forever. And if you are sitting at your desk procrastinating from study in post-trial exhaustion, then your position is not all that different from mine!

It's been a week and half since I arrived at Cornell and during that time I've pretended to be a freshman. It was fun for the week because I did all the freshman things - stand up comedy, rock concerts, casino night (I have much more sympathy for people addicted to gambling now), movies and an endless number of icebreakers which failed to break any ice.

Even with the temperamental weather that’s plaguing Sydney this week, nothing can dampen the spirits for Sydney Uni LIVE! on Saturday because we won’t let it and because sandstone’s just as sexy, if not sexier, in pseudo-British rain. If worst comes to worst, we still have incalculable numbers of plastic ponchos for the fashion conscious, or so I hear.

Emerging from the cocoon of my beloved Fisher library yesterday, I took a few moments to get accustomed to the late afternoon sun, whilst attempting to transform into the neglected social butterfly of my former self. This is none to easy a task when carrying twelve books, the physical manifestation of an unhealthy belief that if I can just borrow all the books on my topic I’ll get through my thesis.

I can already hear your groans – "Liisa, this joke is lame, we know the answer, the fact that we already know the answer does not, as it occasionally does, make the joke any funnier. In fact, it means we cannot even let out one involuntary snort of derision upon hearing the answer. You know what, spare us the pain of the punch line, we’ll pretend you never asked the question. Just don’t say S-T-I-…"

But I’m looking back at you with a rather surprised expression on my face. How did you know what stick insect poo looks and feels like?

Hello! This is the first instalment of my exciting series of blog entries from Cornell University. I hope the latter part of my previous sentence turns out to be true.

Firstly, things I find exciting may not be the things you find exciting (would you find a waffle maker exciting?), and 'series' suggests I'll be writing regularly - I hope I can do it every week, but to me, thinking "I'll write a blog entry every week" sounds like "I'll study my lecture notes during semester and not STUVAC".

After finishing my last working day at Lithgow Hospital last week, I have become nostalgic and felt like reflecting on a few things that full time work has taught me:

Rewind four years…
‘Pens down.’
Breathe. ‘You’ve done your best, let it go…’ (rational voice floundering in a sea of panic).
‘Oh my gosh, what was I on about? What was that EXAM on about?!’ (whimper)
‘I totally crashed - this is the end of everything!’

I know the sensation. You’ve just been hit by a trial exam curve ball and feel as if the light might slowly slip from the day. Oh the drama…All that hard work misdirected. The gnawing, regretful pain.
