When I was at school, stressing about getting an assignment finished at 11:30pm on a Tuesday night, my mum would say: “It’s OK darling. Just do what’s due tomorrow.”
Now, she meant well. But those words have now become a family joke.
Because why would I be up at 11:30pm with tears streaming down my face over an assignment due in two and a half weeks, Mum? Chances are it was due last Friday but the guilt has only just got to me.
Much like my mum, Bill Shorten likely also means well.
As New South Wales heads into their final week of HSC exams, and Queensland yesterday sat their English exam, students all over the country are visiting Twitter, desperate to find some invaluable advice from 51-year-old opposition leader, Bill Shorten.
And yesterday, he delivered.
“My tips,” he wrote. “Take your time, read the question and relax. Everything will be fine.”
Good luck to everyone sitting the VCE English exam today! My tips: take your time, read the question and relax. Everything will be fine.
