    Argh!
    Worked from 2pm to 6:30. Ate dinner. Worked from 7pm to 9pm. Got caffeine and discussed essay plan with friend till 10pm. Worked till midnight. Imbibed more caffeine and talked to housemate till about 1am. Worked through to 6:30am. Took a nap till 7am. Woke up and decided I couldn't see my laptop straight. Took a longer nap till 9:30, have now woken and written another line. I'm over the 2000word mark but need another 500 very good words. The 'easy' bit is done, and this is the most important part and ideally the essay would have been sent in 10mins :bawling:

    I feel physically ill but I really have no choice (first draft for assessed essay NOT supervision essay, the latter of which I still have two)

    EDIT: First years do not try this at home! (:rolleyes:)

    Huh? Didn't they do that last year? I spent a month or so when I kept forgetting to get an ethernet cable using the library wireless to connect from my room.
    Sure you weren't using Lapwing? You were close enough to the gradpad after all. Currently you can't get Lapwing in the library.. well you can but only on the far left in the tucked away study niches. I can get Lapwing in my current room in Fitz, though, because its an attic room.

    Because the original deadline for this draft was Tuesday morning, and I emailed my supervisor (who is also the course director and my favourite lecturer) to say there was no way I'd manage it then, and he rescheduled yesterday's supervision for tomorrow afternoon.. and the final version is due one week from now and worth 25% of one of my papers.

    And it took ages to read and write for because its philosophy, and a bit of an adjustment! But thanks!

    Me neither. I submitted my 1063 words at 830 am, and have just woken up from that, so I can leave for my supervision in ten minutes

    I rarely have breakfast I intended to get up for it this morning because I was craving yoghurt/fried bread but completely failed so had a hurried bag of hula hoops in my room before I went to translation. I just had a mammoth lunch to make up for it though

    I appear to have lost a folder and a lot of important notes. This may be a signal that I should clean my room for once. Although it doesn't really seem worth it, because the finding of the folder would mean I'd have to read Kant and Luther for this afternoon's seminar, and it always feels like such a waste of my life

    :eek: The 'thought' part of my german course (Kant, Freud, Marx, Habermas) is my favourite part of the degree so far... I was saddened when my seminar got cancelled this week

    It's not actually part of my course, it's a Western Culture seminar thing that we have to go to every fortnight. I don't like it because the reading takes up a lot of time and the seminars consist of three very intelligent people from Jesus monopolising the talking while the rest of us fall asleep. I don't find the way it's presented very interesting, and although philosophy interests me, for some reason these sessions don't in the slightest, and I feel like my time could be better spent doing work I'm actually assessed on.

    Well I wouldn't, but a couple of weeks ago there was an issue with timetabling and the guy who runs them thought my friend and I had skipped one, and emailed us and our DoS and said that we'd have to pay for any sessions we'd missed out of our own pocket, I think probably because college pays extra for them So I have to go and continue sleeping all the way through them.

    (Me, conscientious? :p:)

    lavalse - they're specially organised by college, I think it's up to your college whether you do them or not. I know not every MMLer does.

    The seminars I attend are just for 1st year MMLers in Newnham, so maybe your college doesn't offer them?

    Tbh, I think I'm the only one who finds them directly useful for my course, or at all interesting for that matter... but hey :o:

    That's ridiculous :eek: I'd say skip 'em anyway and just laugh at whoever's running them if they try to pressure college into sending you a bill. So long as your supervisors for your assessed modules are happy with your work I can't see the college having much grounds to stir trouble over your attendance or attainment.

    Wow, page 100 already.

    Hmm, anyone going to the union tonight? It looks like a sort of interesting but needlessly argument-inducing topic.
