February 2011

When we graduated from year 7 into year 8, it was imbued in us that we were above the incoming year. They were still children, yet to learn the delicacies of high school life. We were higher up on the social ladder than them, finally no longer clueless and in our own minds somehow wiser. We looked down on those little year seveners with a combination of scorn and misplaced pride. Throughout high school, the year below wasn’t of much concern, yet the sense of superiority never left. We were better than they, and they had no idea of what was in front of them.


Hey Everyone! My name is Mayura (its easier read than pronounced!) and I'm a third year Bachelor of Science (Adv) student at Sydney University doing a double major in Biochemistry and Immunology. I'm currently spending my fourth week in the US where I'm undertaking a semester of exchange at the University of California, Berkeley. Hopefully through my own experiences and discoveries, I'll be able to provide you with a taste of what an exchange program offers! So as I write this blog from the Science library (which is only one among 30 different libraries on campus, along with 5 levels of underground storage!) I'm trying to figure out how to summarize the past 4 weeks of my stay here. I guess I shall start by describing Berkeley- which if known at all, is famous as a university town with everything centered around and linked to the campus. The university campus itself, which was established in 1868, is very beautiful though it’s a rather different beauty to what one would find at Usyd. With many grand white buildings amidst the Californian redwood trees which are habited by a large population of squirrels, creeks which run through the campus to the mountains (a popular hiking location) at the Western end, the university almost seems like a national park!
