Dive In

When was the last time you felt out of your depth? For me as a uni student, it’s … well, pretty often, actually. I find that when I’m sitting in a lecture learning something, I can sometimes get a little bewildered. ‘Holy shit,’ I think to myself. ‘Is everyone else just casually...

Any Hole Is A Goal

Have you ever found yourself in a YouTube hole? It's like a K-hole, but you might (or might not) learn more stuff. You have probably been in the YouTube hole many times without realising it had a name. It starts off innocently enough – you're watching a quick video about how to assemble the...

Tell me, how do you like to kick off your weekend? For many of us, it's afterwork drinks, then home for predrinks and getting ready to hit the town. For some, it's a workout at the gym to sweat out the stresses of the week, before predrinks and heading out. For others, it's a dim sum feast...

Aside from the tragic loss of ex-Thai Navy Seal diver Saman Gunan, the rescue of all those soccer boys and their coach was a happy success. It astounds me how alone and forgotten those people must have felt in a big cave like that before they knew rescue was on the way. I wonder if they were aware...

Our world is a funny place. Why is it that Australia just can’t seem to get its shit together when other countries manage to grow the fuck up and make good choices? Everyone else is happy to limit and ban plastic bags. It’s a great thing for the environment and makes us all think about how our...

Last week a close family friend died tragically and unexpectedly, and I spent a lot of time lying in bed reflecting on everything and thinking about our friend. It was a horrible week, and none of the usual suggestions made me feel better whatsoever – not hot tea, not gentle walks, not company,...

By Geisha Bar

This year I've started going to the movies a lot more – it's not something I ever used to do because I was much more of a "wait until I can torrent, I mean, legally purchase it" kinda gal (that, and by the time I realised that a movie I wanted to see was out, it would have already left the...

It's that time of year again where I struggle the most – uni exams period. It's not that I'm not a (somewhat) diligent student during the semester, it's just that when it comes to the end of the semester I feel like I don't know ANYTHING. How is that even possible? I go to all my lectures, I...

censorship
I was listening to Triple J Hack the other night and heard a crazy little thing regarding student media censorship. As a student myself, naturally my ears pricked up! The University of Otago, in Dunedin, New Zealand, has just come under fire for censorship of the student magazine, Critic. Critic...
