    So...
    I've discovered that Part II is distinguished from Part I in that you actually have to think bloody hard.
    OMG please don't demean my pain!!!

    From what I gather from Craggy
    part 1 difficulty = volume of work
    part 2 difficulty = content of work?

    I didn't find Part II that hard :o:

    I'm probably just retarded and incapable of doing impressive pieces of work, though tbh.

    Exactly :yep:
    Although this is my experience of the course, and I in no way suggest that it has to deny someone else's experience.

    Otherwise it would be quite hypocritical of me to get worked up every time someone says SPS is a pisstake :p:

    Not in the least!
    Last year was a matter of sheer survival and physical endurance. This year is about challenge, stimulation and intrigue..with occasional interjections of panic.

    You haven't finished Part II yet :p:
    And not to say anything about your subject (which I obviously have little experience of) - but we can't really compare, as the different streams are an entirely different kettle of fish. Different discipline, approach, content, etc.

    sorry, I meant Part IIa :p:

    But I agree strongly. I think if you choose contemporary politics modules the way I tend to, it's nowhere near as hard as struggling through Marx etc.

    That, in essence, is Marxism. And probably how he convinced people that he wasn't talking utter ********.

    Lol. I find Althusser useful! "Early Marx doesn't count" Problem solved :^^:

    ..but Sartre is disagreeing with me :reaper: (smiley - directed at Sartre not me!)

    I'm taking the Camchat Philosophy department's advice though - forcing it all to back up my view! :judge:

    The Churchill Ball people want me to sing at their ball, but they want me to buy a discounted ticket? Is this normal practice or should I ask them to buy me the whole ticket?

    I don't know what's normal, but having to pay to work for them seems a bit odd.

    It just took me 3 hours to translate 14 sentences of Russian. My sense of achievement on finishing it was undermined by my counting of the sentences In my defense, it was hard Russian...

    The trick was splitting the beam into two with the attractor in just the right place....



    Oddly, 3:5 and 3:6 are really easy though.

    Erk! Sorry minimo
    I think the last few days is probably pretty crazy for everyone though. And I don't know about everyone else, but it seems like every social group in the University schedule something for the last week :dry:
    Rubbishness!

    Well.. wordcount: 0 , but I have my convoluted essay plan and I feel quite smug, even though its going to be a looong night.

    Definitely demand it free!
    Wow, you must be good then! (sorry haven't heard you obviously) What style of music do you play/sing?

    Curses!!! I really wish I had a stock of red bulls in my cupboard like I had last year. I wanted not to need them obviously, and clearly I've been victorious for 7 weeks, but it had the last laugh in the end :coffee:

    Only 2500 to go :p:
