Today, even though it is a Friday, marks the beginning of one week’s break from classes. One week does not seem like much, but it is all we get.
During my time at Sunny Coast this ‘mid-semester break’ as it was called was 2 weeks long and was usually in the middle of the semester. But at Melbourne it is a measly one week officially called ‘Non Teaching Period’ or ‘Common Week’ and it started after the 9th week. I thought it was just a Melbourne uni thing, because people have bitched about it being 2 weeks last year. But when I looked back at my old uni I saw that the mid-semester break was now only one week, I guess things have changed . . . for the worst.
Just being a tad dramatic.
While students from non-arts disciplines would think that this is a time for those useless arts students to have a holiday think again.
I’ve got to write up assignments 😦
I’ve already started one and by started I mean: I’ve read the assignment info and don’t know exactly what I’m doing but the more bullshit I write then the more this assignment will make sense and somewhere along the line I’ll work out what I’m supposed to do.
This is usually a good study method because when you’ve worked out what you’re supposed to do, you’ve already got a couple hundred words written to help you. YAY
