I mean I knew at uni you get a lot of reading…but I didn’t realise at uni you get A LOT OF READING!!!


Do they really think I have nothing better to do with my time then pore over endless pages in my textbooks and readers in preparation for my next lecture? Chances are if I read any extensive portion of anything at one time I will fail to take much anything in!


Okay, I’m having a bit of a rant. But on the plus side…I do really quite like university, I’m just rather aggravated now by the endless amounts of reading that is expected of me! My aggravation is amplified by the fact that I walked around the first year chemistry building (at least I think it was the first year chemistry building) about 4 times at various stages during the day in order to find the place where they sell second-hand lab coats…apparently it’s very obvious, but as far as I can see, it doesn’t even exist!


Yes, I do get to have a lab coat…kind of fun, but also kinda geeky at the same time…well, it will be if I can ever find the place to purchase one!


Plus, did I mention how much I hate required reading?

    Ahhh required reading.

    As you will soon learn, is simply a matter of frantic highlighting on the train/tram/bus ten minutes before the tute.

    A photographic memory would be so good right about now!

    Hey Em…

    I’ll let you in on a secret with reading at uni that explains how to manage the volume:

    Most people don’t read it all.
