Horse Racing & Choosing Topics

Hi everyone, welcome again to my blog!

Since my first semester at Flinders has started I have been busy with many assignments and have now chosen my topics.

It is very important for me to know as a student who will work on public health issues in the near future so I have chosen: Development problems, Policies and Programs, Social Determinants of Health and Wellbeing and Promotion in Public Health.

I have many documents to read and analyse and share with the other students on Flinders Learning Online (FLO).

We use FLO as our discussion forum which is easy for all of us to share questions, answers and get feedback from our topic convenors.

Many students come from different countries, some of them are distance learners and some are on-campus students. It is really fantastic to meet with people who come from different cultures; we learn and share our experiences. It’s great to learn from those who have different backgrounds in public health, international development agencies and NGOs.

Wow! This is a great opportunity for me!

In this semester, I have ten assignments which will be due from mid of March to mid of June.

With this workload, I need a good plan in order to deal with the deadlines.

I have only three days in class but besides this, I have to read and search documents. It is easy for me to find books and relevant materials because the university library also opens on weekends.

Academic life here is not very easy so in order to keep stress away, I need to find some time to enjoy my life with outside activities. I went to visit the city of Adelaide and went to see the horse racing at Morphettville Racecourse on the last Australian public holiday.

It is really a nice place to see and I cheered with the other people in the stadium. Yes, it looked great and full of happiness.

Now it is time to come to class and think about my assignment again!

See you later.
