    I absolutely have no motivation this year. I don't know what's happened to me. I did all my epic load of reading for last night, but couldn't bring myself to get out of bed this morning to go the lecture. I have the worst headaches ever so I can't even think straight so there was no point going anyway, but I know from experience these only happen when I don't want to do something anyway. I have spent all morning staring at the laptop screen trying to do the hardest translation ever. Seriously, UCL, Virginia Woolf into Italian?! It's hard enough to understand her in English under the six tons of purple prose, nevermind translate that 'considering the metaphorical and social impact of my choice of words'. And I'm still having timetabling problems which mean that I've got to do three 2,500 word essays by the end of reading week, and another three by Christmas which is ***** and I have to do them well since the essays are 100% of each module, then move into term 2 where I have ten hours of lectures a week, six of them on one day starting at 9am with just an hour for lunch! And I have so much free time that my table is laid out perfectly to do some work to remedy the fact I have £30 to last until Christmas after rent, but nowhere is fecking hiring. GRRR.

    I'm just so annoyed that my work seems to range from the dossy to the impossible without any in between. It's either 65 pages of reading and a ******* impossible translation, or fill in the blanks present tense exercises and summarising a paragraph that's so basic I could have done it this time last year when I'd been doing italian for a week!


    EDIT: Um...that was a slightly epic rant. I am actually not a sour ***** most of the time, I'm just frustrated atm.

    I'm feeling your pain guys.

    I started this year, fresh faced and ready for 2nd year. What happens?

    Well...

    My timetable is so ****** up. 22 hours a week. This isn't so bad since I had 24 last term, but seriously 9am everyday And at least they were spaced decently, what, lectures at 9-10 then 12-1? I guess I'm supposed to twiddle my thumbs for 2 hours since the cluster room in Science Library and Chemistry department and I can't do the lab reports..

    That isn't even the best part; LABS. Seriously, experiments were supposed to take 2 days (4 hours a day) in the lab but for most people took 3 days and because of my OH SO EPIC **** UP on the 1st day, took 4 days for me. That leaves me with just getting my results/spectra today, and handing in the lab report tomorrow at 4 with a nice set of lectures in there for good measure.

    It's just a ton of little things that have really made me really bitter these past 2 weeks e.g Not being able to go to the societies I want to because I don't have time or they clash with other stuff I'm supposed to be doing. Hopefully everything gets better because I have a sour taste in mouth from these past 2 weeks..

    I don't really complain, but man, does it feel ******* good to let it all out. Chin up everyone, it can only get better.

    I need to do 4 credits but I've only picked 3 so far. Portico doesn't even have the option to add more any more. Will I be able to see someone to sort it out?

    Today i dropped something quite heavy on my face at work and now I have a black eye and it hurts and then the cash point ate my card which is annoying and also means I have no way of collecting my train tickets so that I can go home this weekend because I have no money to buy new ones and my legs and feet hurt so much I can hardly stand up but sitting down doesn't help much either and I have no money which sucks considering how much I feel as though I've been working over the past year and I have loads of reading to do and no spare time even though I actually wanted to do something this year like maybe join a society or something but I can't because I have no time and I'm all alone and my life has sunk so low I have to come and moan on a student forum and life just feels generally really unfair right now

    LOL.

    Come on, you of all people know how good it is to vent in awhile. Even if no-one gives a ****. :P

    Just look at all those people who have blogs/twitter and vent like hell.

    Sounds like we're all feeling the pain at the moment. Hope things look up soon, flying twig!

    God, I'm half not looking forward to this week. We have nights out planned for every night of the week, and I don't know if I have the stamina anymore! Living the other side of Camden is such a de motivator- once I've battled back from uni on the Tube each day, I cba going back into Bloomsbury/Soho at night. I'm sure once I've had some drinks I'll be fine, but it's looking daunting at the moment. not to mention I've been struggling to go to lectures as it is, nevermind with a hangover! And had to extend the overdraft the other day because I have no self-restraint with money!

    I've been out soooo much the past couple of weeks. I am involved with a society now though, yay, so perhaps that will take up my time and I won't drink. But I think they think I'm some kind of mental because I've been veering wildly between not speaking and being really outgoing. And I was so tired and felt awful last night but I went back to their house anyway but then decided to go back home and they were like "nooo have another drink! HAVE ANOTHER DRINK!!!!" and i have so much work and don't want to go anywhere near it. and washing up. and i don't want to go anywhere near that either. and laundry. and so on...

    You're telling me...

    Last year, like half of the societies joined went to the pub for 'a quick one' after their sessions. :rofl:

    Lest we forget about the Irish society...:rolleyes:
