Trimester Two? More Like Trimester, Who? 3 Tips for Pretending Tri-Break Isn’t Over


Student Contribution: Zoe Ellis


Look. We know *technically* T2 starts next week. And we know *technically* you should have done your readings. But let’s be real, you haven’t. And you’re still in denial that the break is over. Don’t worry, we’re on the same page. So, here’s a few tips to help you pretend the break is still going.


  1. Wear Sunglasses to Class Yes, it is Winter. And yes, unless you did the whole ‘European Summer’ thing, you probably haven’t needed sunglasses since February (March, if you’re lucky). But sunglasses have a distinctly holiday feel to them. Wear them to class and it will feel like you’re brining the holiday with you. Plus, you’ll have the added benefit of looking SUPER cool.

  2. Schedule A Night Out on a Tuesday Wednesday morning? Never heard of her. Nothing says ‘tri-break’ like a night out on a weekday. Uni breaks are the time to forget your responsibilities and socialise with friends. So, head out to all-you-can-eat tacos with bottomless Margaritas. It’s not like you have class on Wednesday morning at 8am…

  3. Don’t do your readings Hey, we already admitted it. You haven’t done your readings, we haven’t done our readings. Don’t burst the bubble! The time for doing course readings is in the 15 minutes before class, or the 24 hours before the exam. Would a law student on tri-break be doing readings? We think not. So why should you? Prolong the bliss of break, and leave those readings unopened on cloud. It’s where they belong.


The DLSS takes no responsibility for ridicule resulting from Tip 1, hangovers resulting from Tip 2, or any adverse effects from following Tip 3. All advice should be taken with a grain of salt; we’re in denial too.
