When today is the last day you can work on an essay and you still don't know how it should be structured...

She's actually enjoying it, I think it brings her character out
And fair enough, are you thinking of taking up something different after you graduate?
Yeah she sounds like a friend who really likes law and I'm like what?!

I dunno tbh, My parents expect me to pay off their six figure mortgage, get married and pop loads of kids out lol. I still don't think I'm pretty sure what I want to do in life. I might work/volunteer for a while and then maybe try to get into graduate medicine or humanitarian relief work.

Heyyy that's what I thought

And good luck with it!

Sameee! I've always been a student and it was just weird graduating last year.. I felt something was missing :erm: Glad I'm back again

I think I'll be ready to move on after this stage though, my only worry is that I don't upgrade to next year, so hopefully I wont flunk any exams or whatever throughout.

--------

been a relaxing sunday so far, just reading through my notes I made yesterday then it's baaaaath time :love: :teehee:

haha no. Not all law students go on to work in city commercial law firms with company cars and business trips every few months.

Thanks!

haha i think It'd just take some time adjusting to non-student life. What are you studying now?

I'm sure you'll do fine!

I wish my Sunday was relaxing. I'm looking at the sociolegal bla di bla's of globalisation and law making or something.

Yeah. And I just started a research project, hopefully extending it to a full PhD one

And thank you :hugs:

But yeah, I had a wonderful summer, but I kept thinking of what next, gaaaah?
So I'm glad I got given this opportunity!

That would depend on what type of course you're doing?
As for science/engineering ones, I tend to start with an introduction, addressing the essay title, why it's important etc - so like a mini abstract of what to look out for in the essay/report

Then a series of paragraphs, cutting the main subject into categories, explanations blah blah

Then a conclusion of what the essay was about, summing up the main points from each of the previous paragraphs etc

references

Id do a bubble brainstorm with the keywords of each paragraph before moving to essay writing

I tend to have a general structure that I follow for all essays. But it's just a structure I like to use. By no means do i think it's great. It just works for me.And it's more suited to law essays.
But yeah I'll just summarise it:

Introduction: discussion topic of essay and a couple of general statements that fit into my single argument concerning the topic.

Para 1: First statement. (for each paragraph I set out the statement, back it up with a source and then a conflicting statement as a rebuttal and then I map out my sources to show why my first statement is correct)

Para 2 : Second statement (same structure as para 1)

Para 3: Third statement (same as para 1)

Para 4 & sometimes 5: How I use my statements to form the argument of my essay and then I'll try to show how my argument is better than (or more suitable) than a potential rebuttal.

Conclusion: I sum it all up.

I'll sometimes vary the essays. I tend to follow a very rigid structure though. I can't deal with creativity when it comes to essays.

Ooh! Good luck! Sounds scary.

Do you have an idea of where you want to go like what areas you want to work in?

I think I'm just really interested in scientific research in general.. I do well in lab work and projects than I did in my modules I think it was because I actually enjoyed the challenge it set, you have to look for the information yourself, work out why things arent working, experimenting your ideas and playing about with theory :yep:

And well, if this project succeeds then I'd like to work on projects with a bit of a spin-off to this original one, and if it doesn't , then a different field in nanotechnology? I think (:

Either way, I'm pursuing research in bionanotechnology, which is what I'm interested in

I can't make my code work and it's doing my head in.

or rather, my code does work but not in the way its supposed to, and I can't work out why.

and living with people who seem to find it impossible to clean up after themselves is driving me mad. WHY do people think its acceptable to use other peoples stuff and then not wash it up for numerous days and just leave it there?

How does scientific research work? Do you get to just spend all day trying out crazy ideas or something?

Oh wow that sounds awesome! I mean I don't know what bionanotechnology is but kind of jealous.
