I graduated from Sydney Uni two years ago and it was all pretty standard. I posed for the cheesy purely-for-the-benefit-of-Facebook photos. I shook the hands of ridiculously overqualified academics. I walked out of the university grounds and bid farewell to student life, finally ready to take on the “real world”. And then, *poof*! Just like that, everything I’d ever learned, from my very first semester to that momentous occasion, evaporated from my brain.

Now normally, this wouldn’t be too much of an issue. Normally, you can get by with foggy recollections of your studies – even score a reasonable job with a respectable salary. For me, however, that’s not the case.

You see, I’ve returned to Uni this year to study Honours in Psychology (madness!). And not only do I have no recollection of what I learned in two units of statistics, but I can’t recall how to perform a single one of those important “uni student skills” that all uni students are supposed to have – like how to borrow textbooks from the library, and how to reference textbooks from the library, and how to read textbooks from the library, or whether people even use textbooks from the library anymore.

The only upside is that whatever I now lack in book smarts, I can more than make up for with my street smarts. All I have to do is figure out a way to incorporate my wealth of “real world” knowledge into uni life. So I’m wondering, would a thesis on the topic of “101 unique excuses to get out of work” count…?

Bring on semester 1!
