    I'm confident that you'll be absolutely fine. I can't wait for next year, really excited about my modules \o/ ...Just over 8 months of placement left!

    I really am! Today I crashed into a bookshelf in the library and broke it causing a total avalanche of books.
    That just means you're clumsy, not an idiot too!

    Hmmm...just achieving a B in Eng Lang seems unlikely...tis getting tough this year. Then I need to pass one other subject (and preferably both!) but I'm focusing so much on Lang that the others are going downhill! ARGHHHH!

    What are your modules?

    Next year I'll be taking modules on Computer Vision & Pattern Recognition, Digital Signal Processing, Nanotechnology...not entirely sure about the others, but I could learn how to write software to control satellites if I wanted...

    EDIT: (Comp. Vision is the one I'm most excited about - how to make computers 'see' the world and process it usefully, e.g. creating facial recognition for CCTV footage, license plate matching etc)

    Yeah. Should be quite interesting! Perhaps you should concentrate on this year first?

    True, it might be inspiring. You should probably be essay-writing instead of forum-ing by now...loathe as I am to shoo away my only company at the moment!

    Don't worry, I'm revising and foruming...every time I read through 1 lectures worth of slides I get 10 mins on TSR :yep: only two more lectures to read through then I've gotta do essay. If I keep telling myself it'll be fine, it will be! I've got a thorough plan though so shouldn't take too long to write...hopefully. If I get this essay done by thurs, then I can do my other essay before the weekend as well as proofread the essay I've already done... Plus I better read at least 2 books this week...oh and write my presentation. FFS why are deadlines all clumped together!

    Similar to how I'm browsing TSR at work. Every time I write a line of code, I give myself a TSR break. And then every time I meet an error in my code. And every time my code works... and... yeah. I spend a lot of time on TSR here.

    Sounds hectic... I'm glad Electronics isn't an essay based subject. We do have to write reports etc, but they're infrequent (and quite easy). Academics like to think they set their assignments at a time where other lecturers haven't set anything. To do this, they all choose the same time of year and then fail to communicate with each other. :P

    Ha ha so you're being paid to do TSR...happy days!

    I'm especially annoyed that psychology in the next 2 weeks gave us lab report due in, literature search due in, essay due in, practice test, plus we have to complete a 2 hour lab...I mean that is seriously poor planning!

    I'm paid to do TSR, listen to radio 1 and drink energy drinks.
    Also to develop radio communications equipment for the military... but mostly the TSR, Radio 1 and Red Bull.

    That does seem just a tad over the top.

    It's like babysitting, but on a larger scale, probably with a better wage too!

    It is rather OTT, but I'll hopefully just about cope. And if not, I've got a supply of chocolate already prepared.
