    It makes it so much less horrible, doesn't it? I'm starting to think of that lecture as a special occasion.

    Everyone's in the same lectures for this module. It's just the seminars that are different. All English students will enjoy the 2hr45min party lecture. :yes:

    Most of this stuff was mentioned in the firmer's thread & the timetable thread but I've also read all about the department's assessment methods and all sorts of crazy stuff. :yes: I like to do my research thoroughly.

    I can see how looking at the assessment method might be useful.

    AND I TAKE IT ALL BACK ABOUT THE CRITICISM. I tried to read the Sidney essay yesterday and it sent me to sleep. I'm the sort of person who can't nap during the day, and yet I couldn't keep my eyes open.

    Granted, it might have had more to do with getting a poor night's sleep previously and being out on my bike for two-and-a-quarter hours, including many hills, BUT I like to think it was the essay.

    I keep reading Halifax as Fairfax and getting my hopes up. Keeping my fingers crossed there'll be at least one other English student out on the same limb as me.

    I ALWAYS have coffee and tea in plentiful supply. Plus, I make some damn good cookies. This is going to be awesome...

    I've only got one 9.15 start. Is this normal? Does everyone else have Thursday off? And who else has toddy? (Thomas O Donnell)? :] Getting so excited now!

    Normal, yes. Lucky, yes. I'm in at 9:15 the first three days of the week, and 10:15 on Fridays.

    ...Oh god. I haven't attempted to read any of them yet, I'm going to start them once I'm done with Beckett. I've read Shelley's Defence of Poetry already but the prospect of all this criticism is scaring me somewhat.

    I've barely read any of the short stories at all. Can't bring myself to. Everything else is done, though. I probably need to re-read Mrs Dalloway to make sure I took it all in properly in the midst of my hatred for it, but ehhhh.

    I'm so distracted from my reading list right now because I was given a ton of novels the other day, and I pre-ordered a book in paperback from Amazon ageesss ago which is due to come soon. Buying things for freshers' week and my room is getting in the way of my reading too.

    @Rainbow - Hey you. Well, at least you're reading something? I've been doing sweet fanny adams and growing increasingly guilty over it. I used to read a lot when I was smaller, and I enjoy it when I get started; it's just the, you know, motivation to get started. Stupid mental stumbling blocks.

    And then I kick myself for being melodramatic.

    Actually, I think listening to Dirk Gently repeatedly has made me pick up his bad habits... Away I muse.

    The Beckett plays are alright - I've read all the ones we're supposed to, and am slowly dipping into the others. I read that essay as well, and shoved it under my Dad's nose. His response was: "I don't blame you if you drop out."

    ...Don't look at me Jeramis, I wasn't even aware we have groups. I've got my timetable (and as soon as I locate some printer paper, will print!)

    I've got nothing! It says "my modules" but that's it! Then when I click on view them there's nothing about timetables.. waah!
    I've found the MASSIVE timetable thing on the timetable website, but that's no use until I've got the group number... Do you actually have a link that says timetable in evision?
    Thanks for helping me with this- paranoia and colds make a lonely mix.. xx

    Yes, there's normally a link there. Mine disappeared for a while today though so maybe that's what's happened to you. :confused:
