Anonymous: Hi Michelle! Is it true that companies care about what university you go to? I currently got to USQ and I'm worried about my job prospects. Thank you! :)

I don’t think so! I mean some universities are obviously closer to job opportunities, but I really believe in the person (and not the location of degree) earning the job. So long as you’re good at what you do, people aren’t going to question you!

Anonymous: hey! whenever i apply eyeliner onto my upperlid, it always smudges into the crease, so i was wondering if you had any tips to prevent this? thanks! :)

Hi there! I always use liquid and wait until it dries before I let any skin touch it. Eyeliner is seriously the most annoying thing ever!

Anonymous: Hey Michelle! I did a pretty bad job my first sem of uni, like C's and P's. How do you think you should study for your subjects? I think the reason I've been doing really badly is because I was always really behind and I didn't know how to study for my subjects at all. What do you suggest that really helps you learn your content and remember it etc? Can you please give me all the advice you can on how you study and do well? Thanks heaps.

Hi there! That’s not bad - I guess it’s all relative. To pass a subject is a pretty big achievement imo, but modern day expectations skew the concepts of doing “well” and doing “badly”. I mean I can understand disappointment, but please don’t beat yourself up too much for feeling bad about those grades!

I feel like a lot of people can only do well in their subjects by sitting back and appreciating the broader sense of the degree, and appreciating that the subject is one obstacle to attaining a degree that leads to the job at the end of the tunnel. Of course, this is not always the case.

(Anyway, end of rant).

I study by going through my learning objectives and structuring my notes according to them. In the end, your exams will be based off them! It’s pretty efficient and I gain a sense of appreciation for each subject in the end. I try not to spend too much time during the semester memorising things because that will get you nowhere; rather I like to understand things and then leave the memorisation for swotvac. Contextualising things at the beginning of the semester and understand concepts is much more effective than trying to rote learn a whole lot of facts that you’re not going to remember in 10 weeks’ time. Seriously.

Good luck!

Transition is imminent

Honestly really is the key to everything. I can’t quite convince myself that I’m quite at the complete trusting stage yet, but I think it’s getting there. Granted, I’m pretty inquisitive and know when things just don’t add up, or when I expect something unrealistic, but it’s definitely on the improve. I guess I’m just too competitive for my own good and need to let go, but as with most things, it’s a lot easier said than done. I wish people would just be straight with me right from the beginning, because things I need to hear are much better in the long run than things I want to hear. It’s as simple as that.

Had an absolutely beautiful day with this one! He cooked a million and one things for me today and took me to Crystal Creek

Admittedly I had to walk for like 200km on rocks and almost fell down about 50 times and encountered a python along the way but y’know I’m still alive so yolo

(also I am not naked as the first photo may suggest)

Anonymous: just fyi mono can present with strep-like symptoms and taking amoxicillin when you have mono can result in a rash. so. you might actually just have mononucleosis and should prob see a doctor.

Hi there! Dad and I actually considered glandular last night because of that exact reason but discounted it because my throat cleared up by 100% within 1 day of taking the amoxy and that I should be a lot sicker still, but I’m seeing another doctor today to hopefully change my antibiotics :) but thanks! It might still be ebv (being hopeful that it’s not)

So I have a throat infection (probably strep) and dad told me to get some amoxicillin for it so I did

Turns out I’m allergic to penicillin so now I have an awful rash on my face and it’s spread to my back over the past 24 hours
