Second Semester Studies

Hey again everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed your holidays, even though they are over now and exams aren’t just around the corner – they are right next door to us. It wasn’t really that much of a holiday for me, as I took it as a chance to take up extra hours at work. So, I had been working every day of the holidays, what a way to make a living! (You can call me Dolly Parton). Apart from working and study, I also celebrated my 20th Birthday.

I still have mixed feelings about turning 20. On one hand, I am less than a year away from my 21st, which I am excited about. However, on the other, I am no longer a teenager, which frightens the living daylights out of me. My mum said to me on my birthday, “Nicky, with great age comes great responsibility” EEEEEEKKKK *Red alert!*. I chose to ignore her.

On a lighter note, the Gatsby Gala was a success. After many hours and hours of hard work from the executive and charity committee, we managed to put on a great evening which was well enjoyed by all who attended. With many attractions such as Casino Tables, Live Band and Dancing, as well as a charity auction on the night..However, it is safe to say the highlight for many was the photobooth. Here are some photos from some of the awesome people who attended.

We also raised $5000 for the Pajama Foundation and the AEIOU Foundation, which makes all of the hard work and stress worth it. If you would like more information on these charities and what they do, you can simply google them.

As well as charity ball, all of residential colleges also celebrated the ending of the Residential Shield. One of the best things about college, Res Shield brings the colleges together throughout the year, with their eyes on the prize. Unfortunately for me and the rest of Concannon, McGregor came out on top and took the shield this year for the second year in a row. Steele Rudd won the College Spirit Cup, which was well deserved.
Anyway, I better get back to my studying. Thanks again for reading, I will talk to you once exams are over.

About Nicky

My name is Nicole Mitchell, however you can call me Nicky. I am your far from average 19 year old female uni student studying at the University of Southern Queensland in Toowoomba. I am currently enrolled in a Bachelor of Laws, and am about to commence my 3rd year in 2013. I am lucky to have been born with the gift of the gab. I have lived on campus at Concannon College for the past 2 years and I couldn’t imagine spending my days as a student any other way. I have met people from all different backgrounds and avenues of life, and made memories that will last me a lifetime. I am from what from the country folk call “the big smoke’, also known as Brisbane City. Before I moved to Toowoomba the busy city lifestyle was all I’d ever known. People often call me crazy, and ask why I chose USQ, and I tell them all the same story (This will come later, you will have to keep reading my blogs to find out). It was spontaneous, however the say the best things in life aren’t planned don’t they? Its always awkward to write about yourself, but for you, I will do my best. If one of my friends was asked to describe me I think(and hope) words that would come up would be happy, talkative, humorous, nice and most of all, FUN! I don’t do boring. I believe that life is short, so live for the moment and enjoy yourself. Well there you have it, the 411 on yours truly. Thankyou very much for taking the time to read it and watch this space. Keep smiling! Nicky
