Leaving uni

shy-blog.png

We’ve all been told that when it comes to securing an internship or job, often it’s not what, but who we know that makes the difference. For those of us who are a little shy or self-conscious though, the task of networking can feel intimidating, if not somewhat contrived. But it doesn’t have to be...

HECS.png


Week Four: the time when you start to think perhaps this whole Uni thing isn’t for you. You have a weird tutor that trails off at the end of her sentences, you can never keep up in lectures and you don’t really understand this whole ‘eLearning’ thing people keep talking about.

It seems at this point – whether you’re completely behind on readings, struggling to understand the basic concepts of your subjects, or haven’t made a single friend – that a lot of students just jump ship entirely.

But that's not the only solution. The HECS Census date is this Sunday, 31 March – your last chance to withdraw from subjects you no longer wish to take without attracting fees or fail marks on your academic record.

Here’s some ways to make this deadline work for you…

Well the day came. The big day of bells ringing, tassels swinging and hats flinging – GRADUATION!! As I walked into Holme to collect my academic clothing for graduation I found myself double-taking at my fellow media co-horts –they were hardly recognisable, looking all grown up in their attire to mark the final thing we’d experience together as a group. I was presented with my real fur stole and my hat and dressed, ready for the ceremony.

In the mail today I got my invitation to grauduate. Yes, it's come. Time to be all grown up! My last day of uni actually saw me being really sad- when would I ever get to go from straight professional standard media to professional standard archaeology?? hah never! Only at uni with a degree that let me explore all aspects of my inner (cough cough not so inner) nerd. I decided that I'd make the most of the uni offers while I still could so took up an opportunity for an internship in Indonesia throughout the Summer holidays.

This is my last post. After finishing my fifth year at uni, time seems to run away from you as life becomes filled with work and other pursuits. So tonight, as a new batch of year twelves await the final outcome of their HSC year and embark on making the next decision about their education, I thought it timely to look back on the best and worst parts of being a uni student...

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...

The big day

20 Apr

The day finally arrived after much anticipation. I was allowed to take my first day off work for the big day. My family took me out for dinner for the occasion. I bought new clothes for this event. (I was even going to get my hair coloured and cut but the hairdresser was totally booked.). Yes, the day arrived where I received recognition for 4 years of hard work at university. I graduated.

Rhetorical question for the day: why is there a need to get engaged straight after leaving uni??

Housework used to be one of those items on my to do list that was expendable. If I was feeling generous, or rather guilty, I would perhaps do some washing or unpack the dishwasher. But those days are gone as housework has come to claim revenge on my independent living style. See, I have moved out of home, into the nursing quarters of Katoomba hospital.

Today, I woke up at 6:30am. Tomorrow, I will again wake up at 6:30. Then it’s the weekend. But the week after that I will be arising at 6:30 am every day. Yes my dear friends, the time has come for me to abandon my indulgent uni holidays and ripped jeans, for I indeed started my graduate job today.

I can’t put my finger on it yet, but something is amiss. Like I’ve rushed out of the house patting my pockets going “phone/ wallet / keys” and then realised I’m not wearing any pants.

I think it’s got something to do with the fact that (shhh!) I’m not a student anymore.

End of an era

20 Nov

When does one finish their undergrad degree? I have harped on about the excitement of finishing classes and the banality of exam periods, but now I am officially done. The only thing left to do is to unravel my results and then slap on a square hat and cape, shake hands with an academic and graduate!! When people ask me what do I do, I can no longer say I’m a student (although concession cards last till March!) It’s all over red rover.

While Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes decide on a wedding date, and Mark Viduka breaks a toe playing soccer, I have completed my last ever class as an undergraduate. Woohoo!

End of an era

18 Jul

If we believe clichés, then all good things must come to an end. What goes up, must come down. All journeys have their destinations.

But what if you took the journey, and missed the destination? What if you’re still up, waiting to fall? And what if your good thing has ended, without you being there to witness it?

On Wednesday, June 7, I had my last tutorial. Ever. (Maybe.)
