    Hehe, it's so funny seeing all the complaints about work - at least you lot don't have to compulsorily be at work from 9 to 5 every day. When I was at Trinity, I used to wake up in the afternoon and do an hour or so work at most. :o: Now even though the work is simpler, it's actually tougher.

    Eek, I just logged on to Camcors out of curiosity and have discovered that I'll be getting a report for my Western Culture seminars, which basically consists of an hour of me sleeping on Thursday evenings.
    Ditto, this could be interesting! I'm going to get such a great report for that, obviously. I was late yesterday and then didn't say anything because I hadn't finished the reading (I was late because I fell asleep DOING the reading!).

    Doing the reading? What is this thing you speak of? :p:

    I do tend to skim read. Very briefly. I prioritise work that might actually help me pass my degree though.

    They are usually at the same time each year (i.e. day/week no.) and last year's timetable can be found here: http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/reporter/2007-08/special/16/

    Yes, there is that! Although I've always done the reading before as it was quite interesting...I'm just not having a very good week this week!

    Question 8 on DE4 - I'm trying to use the method in Cowley's notes, but I keep making algebraic errors......and this is where you tell me I'm doing it all wrong :o:
    Ah, DE4. I haven't started that one yet and I theoretically might have to hand it in next week... I guess I could postpone the supervision to next term...

    I would much much rather have compulsory hours.

    And oh dear God. I don't want to talk about that supervision.

    I guess it can only get better the next time then. Sorry to hear that though.

    Oh, I disagree. I visited friends this weekend (I should have come to see you -- I forgot, sorry!) and got reminded about how awful it is not to have proper weekends and evenings. Give me compulsory hours and no stress any day.

    That looks quite fun actually. What does it mean by "incorporate a bit of the tissue" - does part of the suture go through the tissue below the skin or something?
