The sun is shinning brightly on this pleasant fall Monday. This is the last week of classes for this lovely trimester. However for me, this is my last week of classes for my undergraduate career, and I think Mother Nature is as excited as I am. A matter of hours separates me from undeniable freedom. Freedom to say so long to studying, freedom from homework’s hellish grasp, freedom to travel the globe… even more so.
Although classes end this week, there is still a “study” week and then final exams. This trimester students are up in arms about how the exams are being conducted. Rather than having the exams on campus, students are forced to travel in to the city during all hours of the day to take the exam at the Melbourne Convention Center. I definitely find this strange and upsetting, but understand universities sometimes have more students than they know what to do with.
With roughly three weeks before everyone starts his or her respective journey home, a strange mood has infected Deakin Uni . Some people are excited about going home, others are saddened to leave new friends behind, yet everyone is ready for end of exam parties.
I, for one, am counting down the days of this week with great anticipation. Furthermore, it is only a mere 21 days until the next part of my adventure takes place.
