Okay, we know, we've been away for a long time (like, a really long time). However, we're back and we have a lot of exciting things planned for TQ! But first, we thought'd we'd update you on what we've been up to...

Going in order from most energy spent to least: Uni Family, Gym, Family, Music, Social Life is all that I’ve been doing the past half year and a bit. 2017 was a really good year, and this year I’m planning to ramp things up and hopefully make 2018 even better! The most significant difference between this time last year and now is how much I understand about myself and what I want. I find I spend a lot less time now trying to copy other people and bending over backwards trying to fit in. I’ve begun to understand that time alone is quite beneficial and its hit a point where I quite enjoy my own company. Other than that, I’ve spent the whole of February doing what I love; travelling all across Victoria sharing inspiring messages to high school students getting them to surpass their limits and get themselves to the next level!

Hey everyone! It's been a busy few months for me this past summer. Over the past few months I have found work as a bookkeeper/financial executive (basically I have to do all the finances) of a small advertising agency based in Melbourne as well as having undertaken an Assurance internship at one of the Big 4 accounting firms. It seems that I keep getting accounting roles even though I study Computer Science! Having my hands full with that, I also play flute as part of a concert band and am actively involved within my church with teaching, and everything tech related! I probably need to travel and relax or something before I burn out and will be going to Japan in a few months!

Hi. It’s been a long time. Almost a year, in fact, so I have a couple of things to update you guys on. After wrapping up a tiring yet rather successful second semester of university last year, I enjoyed a long summer break, the highlight of which was my first trip interstate to the Gold Coast with some good friends. I also finally got my license (woo!), and I took full advantage of the fact by going on a road trip to Wilson's Prom. I mainly passed the rest of my days hanging out with friends and family, streaming shows, reading and listening to music

I continue to work at a part-time job at a pharmacy which, although at times challenging, I enjoy a lot more than my first retail job (which I also continue to work at). As for now, I am trying my best to transition out of holiday mode as university rapidly plunges into third year, and I also look forward to bringing TQ back to life with all the ideas we have in store!

The past summer has been an absolute whirlwind of new experiences, friends and good vibes. I have spent many summer nights reading new texts for my VCE English students and making study guides! (Pssst, if you’re studying Extinction, you may want to click on this!) I have also found work as a junior (I STRESS the word JUNIOR) administrative assistant at a clinic near my uni. I am still working on jumping between private tutoring and working in a more pressurizing environment! Nonetheless, it feels kind of exhilarating to juggle the two jobs. With that being said, I will admit that my brain is already demanding more sleep.

Apart from work, I have found a slightly unhealthy fixation on earrings from little market stands. So, your girl here needs to get it together and stop getting so mesmerized by shiny, glossy trinkets. I also came about the realisation that I absolutely love going to NGV to enjoy the ambience and out-of-this world kind of creativity. I think it’s so refreshing to overload your senses with a kaleidoscope of colours and sounds. Also, their postcard collection is STUNNING. Anyways, I am so excited to see how third-year uni unfolds and the new journey TQ is going to undertake with YOU!
