So today’s post is about all the random and important things I have learnt this past month in my day-to-day life with university, work, church and personal times.
– When travelling on the bus at night or to somewhere you have never been before always check with the bus driver where your bus is headed. Otherwise you could end up in a dodgy part of town late at night and miss the last bus home.
– When you get homework and readings for uni actually do then! Or you’ll end up way behind, like me at the moment, and not having a clue what the lecturer is talking about.
– Try to keep the number of commitment you have low. Juggling work, university, church sound, being a youth leader, SPCA volunteering and finding relaxing time this past month and a bit has been a bit of a struggle. And that’s without adding in sport or singing which I never have time for anymore.
– Like my mum keeps telling me, PRIORITISE. I have found that you will have to give up something you love doing, even if for a few months in order to get my uni work done (considering I am going to have to pay back $5000, at least for my courses).
– When it comes to studylink, only borrow what you really need to. I’m pretty sure I didn’t need to take out the whole $1000 course related cost but I did on an impulse. Same with how much you borrow for living expenses I you aren’t getting a student allowance.
– Don’t work late night shifts during the week at the Air Force museum. It’s way too far away to be travelling at night on the bus. Re: bus story above.
– Ask questions if you aren’t sure. This goes for work, travelling and uni. It’s better to know and get it right than do something wrong because you were scared of looking stupid.
Any ways that is all I can remember for now. Hope you enjoyed my little words of wisdom.
