Tips for work/life balance
Although late night study sessions suck, they are a part of university life! It's therefore important to get the balance right between studying and enjoying yourself. Whether that be through having a few drinks with your mates at the local bar (The Famous Grouse for Lincoln students), or maybe exploring, meditating or whatever, my key tip would be to keep your physical and mental health as top priority. You're no fun if you're buggered from studying all the time! Or going out all the time...
Try and find that happy medium sooner rather than later, so you can get into a rhythm for the remainder of the year.
Has it been worth the move?
After being a proud Aussie (Australian) for 19 years of my life, I would be proud to call myself an adopted Kiwi!
It’s not always been easy and I’ve sometimes felt homesick. But, at the end of the day, everyone has moved from home to study at Lincoln University so there are hundreds of others to chat to who are experiencing the same emotions. I know that I’ve also got my supportive family and mates back in Adelaide if I really need them.
If I hadn’t made the move to Lincoln I would be wondering for the rest of my life what it would have been like. I’d recommend anyone to give it a crack, as I bet you’ll have a blast just like me.
It’s definitely been a pretty mean ride so far!
