that's what blogs are for!
been here for many a year. It's not like you have to open my thread is it? you can clearly see (among the many other threads) that this one is written by me, so just don't open it, okay?
if i spammed 20 pointless threads a day would it be okay because you didnt have to open it? Probably not.
although this has a good effect too
One day you'll have to get a real job and you'll look back on having to do an essay and uni or whatever and pine for the return of those days.
go to library >> get notes >> type up notes >> flesh them out to paragraphs >> arrange into essay format >> type up intro and conclusion >> print out >> hand in >> get on with your life
Shouldnt take longer than a day, for under 3,000 words one, really.
it's all the other things that go with it...the distractions is the first one...the guy upstairs who insists on playing heavy beats when i'm trying to work, the fact I have to find a reference for something that I learnt a few years ago
It'll make you feel alot better about the whole thing just going there. Does to me anyway.
plus our library is open 24/7 as of today so I should take advantage!
it sucks so badly. opening hours 8:30am - 10pm :( Even senate house library is open for fewer hours.
Maughan library rules when its open though. Pret round the corner, and you get to pretend you're in the da vinci code.
I'm there like every day now :(
it's real fun staying in there all night. as fun as staying up all night doing an essay or revising is, anyway.
have a break to see all the lawyers gettin' down in chez gerard.
8,000 words on Stakeholder Relationships in Digital Music Retailing.
Stop distracting me.
yeah i'm just chilling with it at the moment, no need to stress just yet, I mean I am already a 1/3 of the way through and it's not in for another 2 weeks yet....but i have another one in for the same day and one in for a few days after that AND an oral presentation so best to get it out of the way
i wrote a 2.5k essay this morning.
Not to go all Mr Miyagi or anything, but really, they're very doable.
I mean, I wrote an e-mail to a friend who was wanting some advice on where to start with listening to Bob Dylan just last week that ran to around 4.5k plus links to youtube videos, books, biography websites etc. The more willing you are to engage with the subject matter the better it'll be (especially if you're a massive sad fanatic of Bob Dylan).
if you have read the text and read a little bit of the secondary literature, you should have ideas. get out a pad of paper, and note things down. don't worry too much about structure. just get down what you're thinking. then, write a plan. structure the argument you want to make and how your thoughts work within it. once you've done it, it shouldn't take more than three or four hours to write your essay. you'll already know what you're saying, you just need to put it into words.
it is easy to be overwhelmed, but the trick is to break everything down into chunks. do the reading. then make notes of your ideas. then make a plan. then write. if you break it down like this, each task is small and easily digested.
Just so I don't have to begin another thread (god forbid)
Okay so i've done my essay (nearly done) on We Are Seven by wordsworth, talking about the social influences of romanticism, the influence of w'worth's own life in the poem and the sublime AND the child Vs Adult imagination (ie society corrupts mind, humans should be bought up closer to nature as society severs the link between man and nature)
So the title I thought of was 'An exploration of human imagination and ideals in William Wordsworth's We Are Seven.'
you reckon that's good enough? or any other ideas?
i think it's usually a good idea to think of the title BEFORE you start writing?
i knew what I wanted to write about. When I heard I had to write about a poem we'd studied I knew straight away I wanted to do we are seven and i knew exactly what I wanted to say, but it's forming a title around that which is difficult.
of course it is an exploration. it is an essay.
THEY give you the title, then YOU write the essay!
produce two essays, each on a text perscribed by the module syllabus. One essay must be on a piece of poetry, the other on a novel.
you'll wish that you were just writing an essay.
I want to get a good degree, but i think i'd prefer to be in the army, i'm sure i will overcome any situation like that if i am to become a good leader
You'll just be in a bunker 10-15 miles away from any action then, that'll be fine.
quite sure I wont be 10-15 miles away.
no matter how much you go on about your uni work, or type up sentences like "(ie society corrupts mind, humans should be bought up closer to nature as society severs the link between man and nature)" (lol)...
you will always be remembered as The Air Dump Boy.
also what's so 'lol' about what I said?
where X is almost always "Man"
also, RABBIT RAPE.
I pretty much have to write about it. I've chosen romanticism so I must write what influenced it and their beliefs etc regardless if i agree with them or not
