9am Head over to the computer labs to discuss an econometrics assignment with my group. We’re using software packages to calculate a statistical model for real-life stock prices.

12pm Catch up with friends at the cubby for a quick round of three-way pool, followed by a cheap and tasty chicken pad thai up the road at one of Newtown’s many Thai restaurants.

1pm Statistics tutorial. My tutor helps us solve questions based on the previous lecture, which was about calculating the probability of certain poker hands.

2pm Attend an executive meeting with the Statistics Society (a student-run club) to organise an upcoming event. We’ve been working hard to host a careers event with employers from the Australian Bureau Of Statistics.

3pm Last class of the day is economics. Today there’s a guest lecture by a leading Australian economics researcher. Afterwards we have a lively discussion about the importance of capital in the economic production process, conjuring much debate from different perspectives!

5pm Visit the Fisher Library to borrow a book mentioned in the last lecture. I skim an article on the train while I’m on my way to a local touch footy game with friends.
