As you may know, I had the absolute privilege of collaborating with the university’s Marketing Department to help out with their Instagram page the other day! The whole idea behind this “Instagram Takeover” is to give people insight into what a typical day at unimelb is like. So lucky me, I was the first one to be part of the takeover! Yay!
However, I didn’t manage to get all my pics on the account (I was also battling a really slow phone, working against our ever reliable uniwireless to send pics to the social media intern to upload on Insty etc.) – so here’s the FULL account of the happening of that day. This post includes uncut pictures of science ball that wouldn’t have been totally appropriate for the unimelb Instagram page.
The morning rush at the Melbourne Central tram stop to get to 9am lectures
Heading down Monash Rd toward Union House
Quick pit-stop to my locker in Union House to put my bags away
Getting my morning chai on at Standing Room. Yumm!
Halfways through my 3hr prac class now! Today we’re looking at heart function in animals and my cane toad heart is still beating even though it’s outside it’s body! Madness.
Prac is nearly over. Can definitely use a caffeine hit after this!
Having lunch with my friends, Adeshola, Ali and Emily, up on the second floor of Union House. Great place to escape the crowds on the ground floor, plus more seating and microwaves up here!
Just passing by a little water feature outside Baillieu Library. This was built with the money donate by the university’s floral group back in 1973.
Great to see so many people riding into Uni. The bike racks outside the Baillieu are always full without fail!
Arrived at Biomed Library! Let’s return some books!
Alright, now to find my friend, Ben, who is somewhere in here.
Ah, since I’m here…might as well make a cup of tea at the MSLE kitchen.
Next class is starting soon. Better grab my laptop from my locker in Union House!
Treating myself to one of the best hot chocolates on campus to celebrate finishing an assignment and a long day.
Old quad looking every one bit of Hogwarts
South Lawn looking mighty green!
Getting my ticket and ID ready
Food! Give it to me.
These pirates even brought their own boat! Props to them.
Time to hit the d-floor
It’s time to head home (no after party for me, MST next morning). But I don’t think someone’s night ended up too well…
So that’s was my day!
And you know what! I had so much fun with this Instagram Takeover, that I’ve decided to launch my very own Instagram account! Since I’m on campus 24/7, and I already take so many pictures around the university, the Instagram thing would be a great way to share with everyone what I’m up to around campus. And I’m sure all my other non-unimelb friends will be glad that I’m finally not bombarding them with pictures on my personal Instagram page.
So, if you’re on Instagram, why not follow me on @unimelbadventures. You can check it out here too: http://instagram.com/unimelbadventures
Hope you are all well :)
p.s. Here’s a shout out to a fellow reader, Vanessa, who I bumped into at Science Ball! Hello! And, to the guy who rocked speedos to Science Ball, you’ve got guts of steel!
