Exam Preparation

28 Oct

Skirt: Boo Radley, second-hand on Ebay

Shoes: Kumfs, second-hand on Ebay

Glasses: WINK Optometry, Elwood

Ring: OhKuol at Etsy

Brooch: Allira Tee

Book: IT Governance: How Top Performers Manage It Decision Rights for Superior Results by Peter Weill and Jeanne W. Ross, Harvard Business School Press, 2004.

This is what I wore to study for my IT strategy and governance exam.  My library of choice: the Sir Louis Matheson at Monash Clayton. I had not been in there for over 20 years, when it was full of books, photocopiers and had a section for smokers. This image obviously not taken at the Matheson, unless they have a colour coordinated children’s section.

    What an exceptionally smart outfit! Those shoes are marvellous, and I love the ring. I love dressing up, but between the train trip, the predicted weather and general exam nerves, chances are I’ll spend tomorrow looking more like a damp mongoose.

      Hi Daniel,
      Thank you for taking the time to comment. Best wishes for your exam. Hopefully you perform as a learned, if somewhat damp mongoose.

    Louis Matheson was the Vice Chancellor at Monash when I was a student there in the 1960s. I remember the night about 150 students broke into the administration at night and took over the Monash University Council meeting in an attempt to have student demands met. We were only allowed to send in a few representatives. The leaders were all communists. I used to go to their meetings in a lecture theatre at lunchtimes. When they were not in the lecture theatre, they were outside the Menzies Building and holding rallies protesting againt lack of freedoms. They would have student votes after motions were moved. If they won the vote they would go and march on another building in the uni. If they lost the motion, which only happened if all the medical students turned up,they would still go off and protest as if they had won the vote. I learned a bit about communis tactics watching them.

    again there is a fierce competition between IT governance and dress sense.

      If you go to the Trove website and type in “Louis Matheson students”, you might some find some old comrades.

      What “lack of freedoms”?
