In my first week of university, I recall sitting in a lecture doubting my ability. My lecturer said, “Look to your left. Look to your right. By the end of your first semester, one of you won’t be here because you failed or quit”. Such inspiring words for an already nervous 19 year old! I […]

Adjust or die (okay, that might be a little bit dramatic but hey, I’m one coffee down already at 6:33am, so a littled psyched).
