High school is over and it seems like everyone is getting into relationships now. Was anyone else part of the 'good kids' clique in high school, where no one was in a relationship, no one went to parties and no one did anything illegal? I was and now it's a really strange feeling when one of us finally has a boyfriend. It's definitely overdue, considering how many students in our year that have been in a relationship. If I'm being . . .
Today, offers were sent out from Australian universities to prospective students and I have to say that university is a lot more confusing than high school. I can say with absolute certainty that the transition from primary school to high school was not as drastic as the transition from high school to university will be. Simply deciding on a degree to pursue was difficult enough, let alone deciding majors and courses with that specific . . .
With a casual job comes unreliability... This is the first time this has ever happened to me, but I really did get sent home from work before my shift ended. Before any of you think that I got in trouble, it was actually just because there were too many Christmas casuals rostered for the day and there wasn't enough to do, so a few of us had our hours cut. While I don't mind going home early and taking a break from the hectic . . .
Is it weird that I feel a bit lost now that final results are out and I have achieved my goal? I live in a constant state of needing to have something to do. I've never been content to just have nothing to do. When that happens, I find myself making and writing down lists just to have something to go on when I find myself sitting around doing nothing. It's a little bit ridiculous when I feel the need to write down the leisure activities I . . .
This post is definitely long overdue. After two weeks of laziness and procrastination, I have finally put up my Christmas tree. I say this while I still need to buy Christmas lights, but at least I have baubles, tinsel and ribbon on the tree. Now that I have my tree up, I'm definitely more into the Christmas spirit and so excited for the day to come. While I love having a green tree, I think I want to have either a silver tree . . .
Christmas has always been the holiday that I look forward to every year. For someone who doesn't really enjoy celebrating her birthday because she hates the attention, I love Christmas because I can celebrate it with family and friends without all the attention that comes with birthday celebrations. I'm not religious, so I enjoy Christmas for the celebration and the ideals it represents. I think it's wonderful that we prioritise the idea of . . .
In celebration of the ATARS that were released today for HSC students, I'll be discussing how to deal with disappointing exam results. It is inevitable that you will receive a disappointing result at least once in your lifetime. This can be for a job interview, a scholarship interview or just for plain school exams. As a student, the disappointing results that you will most likely face are those exam results. It is rare for students . . .
Most of us out there don’t enjoy getting exam results back, but unfortunately, this is what being a student means. I personally hate getting results back, even if I feel like I performed okay. I think for a lot of us, it’s the what if’s that scare us. What if I didn’t do as well as I expected? What if I really did fail? What if I didn’t do enough? These are questions that plague my mind after each exam and right before results come out, which . . .
If I had to pick one thing I loved about Christmas the most, it would be that it’s a time to spread love and hope, especially to those who are less fortunate than us. There are so many things wonderful about the holiday season that I can’t even count them on my two hands. First of all, it’s a time of celebration with your loved ones. The world we live in is so fast paced that we rarely have the time to slow down and properly catch up with . . .
Sometimes working a Christmas casual job is more tiring than a full-time job. During the Christmas season, customers rush to complete their Christmas shopping and stores open with extended hours to accommodate for this influx of customers. When this happens, stores hire a large number of casuals to battle the extra demand. This is where I come in. I was hired as a Christmas casual two weeks ago and began officially working last . . .
