It's hard not to get overwhelmed the first time you step onto campus. Luckily, you can reduce the stress you feel by doing a little bit of preparation beforehand. These are some things you should do before Orientation comes along: Do your research beforehand. Your first time on campus as an official student can be quite overwhelming if you don’t have a general idea of where you want to go. This is especially true during orientation . . .
Sitting in the same position for hours on end in a cramped space is no easy feat, but luckily there are many ways to elevate your airplane experience. Bag or backpack. This is a given but you definitely need something to store everything you’ll be bringing onto the plane. I personally prefer a backpack so that my two hands are free when navigating the airport, but many also like bring tote bags. Some form of entertainment. This . . .
After years of hard work, you've finally graduated high school. It's the first time you've felt genuine freedom in a long time and you're ready to savour it, but when you look around, you realise that your friends and former classmates are all getting summer jobs. Getting a job during the break between high school and university is a popular option among students, allowing them to save up some money before school starts all over again. If . . .
It's officially the school season again! Young hopefuls all over the world pack their bags and head off to school to gain knowledge that will (hopefully) allow them to pay off the debt that they slowly accumulate every day... (but that's a post for another day) This post is all about school organisation, specifically how to get organised for school with diaries and planners. Most students look for three things in . . .
Why do we call them New Year's Resolutions? Is it just because we set them at the beginning of a new year? Or perhaps because that's the only way we'll be motivated to set them? I'm trying to be more honest with myself and I know that I most likely won't complete those that I call New Year's Resolutions so this year, I'm calling them 'Goals that I won't berate myself for not completing this year'. Focusing the year on self. We get so . . .
Is it just me or are anyone else's friends all getting into relationships? Inevitably, there will come a time when you realise that all of your friends are getting into relationships while you're not. It becomes a little more obvious during Christmas, perhaps it's because the holiday season inspires people to be a little more romantic. Although, it does make sad, little me look more depressing. While I'm not really an adult yet, I do know . . .
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 . . .
Having a casual job as a student is an experience that you don’t want to miss out on. It can teach you so many things about the value of money as well as increase your independency. Most students start at their first job during high school. At this time, having a job is more about the experience than the money, considering that the pay rate at this age is quite low. It is therefore understandable that students will want to spend their . . .
What does one learn from having so many different casual jobs? In the three years since I started my first job, I’ve held three separate positions at three different jobs. I promise I didn’t plan it in three’s, simply a merry coincidence! When I started my first job, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the working environment. I actually started working because all my friends had jobs already and I was feeling left behind. It was . . .
