    Right, it seems to be a spate of mass PM's. The mods won't be pleased, it'll be slowing the site down. Why I didn't get one though I don't know, there doesn't seem to be much correlation between subs and non-subs.

    Yes, I loved the Castellanos lecture, shame I won't actually be studying her. What question are you doing for the Cien Anos essay, Zoe? I loved studying that book last term. Am currently trying to make an effort to analyse some Moliere but it's so dull!
    I'm not sure if I'll be studying her either Depends what my supervisor fancies I suppose, but I'm not sure feminist poetry is something that particularly interests him. My question is 'Time in 'Cien anos de soledad' is not linear, but cyclic or circular' - I love being able to pick my own questions because I get fantastic ones like that. Obviously there's tons to write about, but organising my thoughts has proved tricky - like the novel, everything links in with everything else :p:

    lol zoe you always seem like a much more enthusiastic student that me!!
    i am actually interested in this essay all about the marginalisation of women in Castellanos' poetry, and i do actually like her poetry, AND found the lecture interesting (i only fell asleep in the 2nd half, which is a miracle for me). its just i hate writing essays soooooo much, and i just prefer to read the poetry rather than analyse it. if it were possible i would have done 2 ab initio languages and avoided essay writing!

    as helen said i was with my brother visiting family in Australia, then we backpacked around NZ and finished off the trip with a visit to LA! so no, not faculty funded! Im hoping they'll fund me to go to the middle east for 2 months this summer, what about you? any trips planned?
    Haha, I'm really not, just have a bit of a love affair with Hispanic poetry :p: I don't really mind the essay writing, I just wish I had the time to do it properly and think things through. At the moment I have half a mind on my Russian poetry and half a mind on Cien anos. I like having one post A level and one ab initio - when you're feeling rubbish about not knowing any Russian you can go and read some Spanish and feel better because you understand it, but equally when Spanish is getting too icky you can go and take comfort in some hardcore grammar learning

    Oooh wow, sounds great though! And the Middle East, wow, you're brave... My dad's a diplomat in Kuwait at the moment I'm hopefully going to Granada for a week at Easter and St Petersburg for two or three weeks in September Can't wait!

    Yes, I think there is actually a quote from somewhere about how it's written in such a way that it can't be analysed. I didn't get to pick my own question though - I wrote about reality and fantasy, which was quite interesting.

    Granada is lovely, I went on an exchange there a couple of years ago and it was fantastic. I'm hopefully going on a Spanish language course at Easter.

    Yeah, I seem to remember the lecturer (also my supervisor) saying that. I love the fact that it can't be analysed and that he's clearly just chucked in random things to make it weirder. Fabulous It means that I can write waffle about the cyclical nature of time without having to say what it's symbolic of!

    I can't wait to go We're language coursing it to - I'm going with two or three of the other Emma Hispanists.

    I have finished my incredibly boring equity essay...and it is rubbish! Expecting a low 2.ii/3rd for this one. It doesn't help that we haven't had lectures or a supervision on the area yet, and I find it dreadfully confusing in the textbooks Oh well, it's better than turning up tomorrow empty handed, I guess!

    Oooh, I'm rather jealous! I still need to get mine organised but will probably end up going by myself.

    And Zoe, I still don't know who you are. I was sitting next to lavalse in Friday's lecture though.

    DeepBlueSky was clashing horribly with my postbit, so I had to find something that didn't, while still retaining the whole light blue thing...
    i can take at least some credit for this idea, although i did think that noone would notice! It looks good. Defo more readable for me on my phone.

    Awesome evening. Had my friend over for dinner plus her 4yr old son, who got on really well with James! Then went to the pub by boat!

    Have also been told that i might be ready for my first race in time for the Winter League at the end of Feb. :eek: which despite being a Sunday, i'll be able to do cos i have half term off as paid leave!

    I'm pretty sure I said hi to lavalse at the start of Friday's lecture, so probably saw you. Hmmm, as a vague description for next time, I have short brown hair with a fringe and will be wearing an Emma scarf. You'll be at the 5pm translationy one on Tuesday, yesh? I'll make an effort to look distinctly Zoe-ish so you can work out who I am :p:

    oh i completely agree with the post a-level ab initio combo in that respect!

    and yep, you did say hi to me, so crazy_emz was probably neary by. i'll try and get you two to meet on tuesday if you're in close proximity or something

    Lol, such mystery. I will probably be there, assuming that my oral supervision does not over run horrendously so may see either/both of you!

    I should really go to bed now, instead of attempting to do some Moliere. Night all!

    Darn. Went somewhere on Mill road with an insanely inexpensive curry offer tonight, and now I feel sick from eating so much :dry: And I have got *so* much work all of a sudden. I wrote up the outline for my research project to send to the newly appointed supervisor. This was the fun bit. I chose not to think about the essay until afterwards... :doh:

    My essay is now 6 weeks and 7 hours late. I have no idea if I'm actually being supervised on it tomorrow anyway. Nightmare
    Erk! You too? How far have you gotten? I've only just noticed that I have a deadline tomorrow. Seems my body clock was uncannily prophetic :dry:

    I have to write an essay tonight. I have zero motivation with which to do it. I can't even get a good argument going,its just going to be methodical which is dull.

    I wish I could learn to do essays like that - it'd mean some sleep :hmpf: Btw do they mark all of your essays? I'm lucky if they roughly mark one a term :rolleyes:
