I'm talking end of Trimester at uni. Deakin are special like that- we have trimesters instead of semesters. In all of the brochures they talk this up like 'Get your degree quicker at Deakin! Do a summer trimester!' but it's fuck all usefullness if your course doesnt offer any units in the summer trimester.
It's almost the end of Trimester 1 for the year. It also marks the end of my first complete year at uni! I did things the wonky way and started the Bachelor of Primary Education mid year 2011, essentially turning a 4 year degree into a 4 and a half year degree because they changed the course structure at the beginning of 2012. It feels like I still have foreeeever to go!
So to celebrate (read: I randomly felt like shopping and am using this event as an excuse) I have purchased the following from Trenery- (and when I say bought I mean put on lay-buy with the minimum deposit, because I'm a poor uni student)
|Erika Ostrich Embossed Tote from Trenery|
I love a good bag, and my reasoning on this one is-
- I don't have any brown bags
- I don't have any bags big enough to fit all of my uni books
- This bag will match my brown or black leather boots for winter
- I wanted it
I did have to stop myself from purchasing the following-
|Zig Zag Scarf from Trenery|
|Basket Weave Scarf from Trenery|
It's funny- the unit I despised all trimester (Analysing Childrens Literature) is the one I have received the best marks in and have decided to continue on with as an elective. The marks I earnt didnt come easy, and I was really forced to sharpen my essay writing skills for my tough tutor.
But for now....it's holiday time.
Did I mention I am going on a cruise to Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand? I am.
My niece turned 18 in March, so 3 of my sisters and myself are all celebrating with her and going cruising for a week. Only a little trip, but am feeling very lucky to be going on it, especially since Ive barely unpacked from Japan.
Not bad for an end of uni reward, hey?
