IT'S FUCKING DECEMBER AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
yeah, christmas is great!
quit whining and enjoy being a student : )
-the policy making process in the EU (post-lisbon)
-cosmopolitan democratic peace in international relations
and four thousand word literature review for my dissertation
something to do with a comparative study involving the european far-right and the relative failure of the british example in mainstream/elective politics. i still have to see my tutor about it.
-feminists are a bit silly
-slashers are more generally misanthropic rather than specifically misogynist
but sadly they want more words than that.
Fairly straight forward. Get cracking.
one on the effect of civil society on democratisation and the other being a case study on Italian Organised Crime.
I've also got two presentations next week, one on Fidesz and one on filmic representations.
I've also got a 10,000 word dissertation to do, on the impact of new media on political journalism.
And I've got two exams in january.
3 hour lectures
been awake 12 hours. 11 hours of SCHOLARNESS. i feel unclean.
but ill have this essay finished by friday/thursday, then i can start studying for exam monday, then i can get started on another 4,000 worder, then i can study for another (gay and easy. shakespeare is gay, the exam is just 1 shortish essay), then a little 1,500 word essay not due till january eleventh but i want to get it the fuck out the way, then CHRISTMAS
then repeat for another year until im a third year and the real work starts. then degree and mediocre office job/teaching, then suicide at 30. i may or may not leave behind a wife who will not miss me and kids who will resent me

1500 word documet report on an article from the Domesday book

first year lols
and frankly I'm angsty about a lot of things right now. But tonight, I dunno, I've had a good enough evening that I feel like things are probably going to work out alright. And exams are a good 5 weeks away... that's AGES.
Well, if I can polish this 3,000 word essay off before I go to ATP, I am..
Take-home exam Monday-Friday - choice between 4000 word essay on Lexis or i think about 2000 words plus analysis of a text for Grammar
Then 4000 words on discourse analysis to do over the holidays
2500 to do
Ive still got two/ three sections to write
1. go back now and cut down
2. Carry on writing and cut down at the end
while I've been thinking about... you know... STUFF. And now I'm not sure when I'm going to be able to get started again. So yeah, probably won't get that 1st. And if that's the case, might as well not get a 2:1 or any other degree either. That's where I'm at at the moment.
and then 4 finals
Had two 10 pagers and one 1000 word essay due last week though.
