The only mountain I am currently hiking is the mountain of workloads. (The Lord of The Rings reference at it best) so, Hi I guess? Anyone feels like dropping out from school already? Honestly, you are not the only one. Hoping there will be a knight in shining armour to come and rescue you from…Continue Reading Mount Doom in Auckland
A Day in the Life of.
Welcome back to another post of “why did I choose EngSci.” Now, this isn’t a second-semester review because I want to make the next one really detailed. Although, this does give me a chance to write a little about what we, as EngSci’s, do outside of the lecture theatre, leech and 70 (the EngSci building)….Continue Reading A Day in the Life of.
Things I Discovered After Taking Software Engineering
1) Have you loved programming since you were a kid? Well, you really don’t know anything at all. Unless you’re some sort of prodigy and do nothing but code in your spare time, there is still a LOT you don’t know. I’m talking software design patterns, HEAPS of algorithms and data structures, and making your…Continue Reading Things I Discovered After Taking Software Engineering
Part II BME Part II
It’s been 8 weeks since the start of Semester Two and what a tumultuous 8 weeks they’ve been. On the first Monday back after mid-semester break, we had what I considered to be the hardest multi-choice question test I’ve ever taken. In high school, I thought ‘hardest’ and ‘multi-choice’ were words that would never go…Continue Reading Part II BME Part II
Playing breathin by Ariana Grande in my background. “Just keep breathin’ and breathin’ and breathin’ and breathin’ And oh, I gotta keep, keep on breathin’ Just keep breathin’ and breathin’ and breathin’ and breathin’ And oh, I gotta keep, keep on breathin’ ” I guess this is my advice on how to survive the remaining…Continue Reading “I forgot!”

Alongside this, the first draft for our 204, ten person group report is due within the first two days back…Continue Reading “Why choose Mechatronics?” Feat. friends
What is a Moveable Bridge?!?
I figure it’s about time I talk about one of the key tasks for me this semester, the 236 Moveable Bridge project. While you may suspect this is simply a version of the first-year truss project we all know and love, the 236 bridge project is far, far better. This is a 12-week long 45%…Continue Reading What is a Moveable Bridge?!?
My Plan B
Just in case Engineering Career is not for me I guess I could opt for a TV host. Enjoy! …Continue Reading My Plan B
The journey through first semester continues…
And I’m back! Hope you’re all having a wonderful mid-semester break (or, for some of us, a wonderful MEDSCI 142 cramming session)! We left off last time by covering 2 out of the 4 courses that all young biomedical engineers have to take (more if you’re doing a science conjoint, but hey, this isn’t a…Continue Reading The journey through first semester continues…
First Term Over
It’s finally the break, and I couldn’t be happier to be home. As someone who lives far from Auckland, travelling home is a long and tedious process but nothing beats getting out of the big city and back to small-town New Zealand. However, you guys are here to get to know what mechanical engineering is…Continue Reading First Term Over
