Broke Generation Z

As my time at Waterford comes to an end, I (unfortunately) have to start thinking about adulting. First destination in adulting: going to university.

Introducing an inconclusive list of everything that goes flits through my thoughts as I go from Johannesburg –> Dhaka and¬†Dhaka –> Johannesburg.

Term 1 –> Term 2

So, Term 1 was a wrap … 1 month ago. Hehe. Apologies for not posting. But not really. Yes, my laziness got the better of me and I let my productivity escape me. With my flight back to SD in about 4 days approaching, I’m still feeling fairly lazy. Not good. Events that I haven’t…

Guess who finished all her CAS reflections for Term 1?!?! Achievement level: Maximum. Also, I spent 5 days in Johannesburg taking part in the African Leadership Academy Model African Union 2016. It was a pretty dope conference as well as intimidating. I’ve spent the better part of my day writing out stuff for the IB…
