Well, well, well. Look who gets the last word. Now you all have to indulge me in being nostalgic, as I have my last stretch of VUWSA ahead of me. So before tumbling off, I’d like to prematurely reminisce about some of my favourite things about working at VUWSA: – I’m 90% guaranteed to have […]

I have a weird way of relaxing in between my assignments and exam/test prep. I study languages via the Duolingo app. Weird coz who the heck relaxes their brain with an activity that is using even more brain?

Last week Ella and I went to attend a talk by the Irish Honorary Consul-General, Niamh McMahon, about Ireland’s experience with abortion reform. Since 1861, abortion has been illegal in Ireland, as for centuries in Ireland, there has been little separation between the Church and the State. In 1983, pro-life activists became worried that the […]

I got a letter from a Minister! The “March on Midland” was epic. I’ll give you a brief run down. On Thursday 15 March 2018 over 300 students banded together to demand future workplaces that are free of sexual violence. The march was in protest of the sexual harassment and violence students, interns, and graduates […]

I don’t know about you, but we are only two weeks in and it feels like I never left. It can be difficult to find the motivation to keep going, but that’s when you have to remind yourself why you are here and studying. Education is not only good for you as an individual, but […]
