i still have 6 pages of a4 notes to type up. im cold
time to let it all out
yeah mate I have a 2500 word essay to write on the portrayal of communism in 'no one writes to the colonel' and show how Columbia failed at communism, relating it back to Marx and Althusser.
NB if ANYONE knows much about communism give me a PM
what do you want to know? it was pretty in depth for what it was
also, THAT IS NOT WORRISOME. aprt form the 4,000 worder im doing now, i have another one to do, and just today ive gotten another 2 1,500 and one 2,000 worder to do over Christmas. i think my lecturers are the grinchs children or something
but ii've just done two 1000 word essays and i'm preparing a 20 minute oral too, but not as bad as yours.
Well i'm basically comparing communism as devised by Marx and later by Althusser in relation to No one writes to the colonel by gabriel garcia marquez. (Basically we had a choice of questions and I thought this would be the most interesting - I had to chose the text myself which I enjoyed too, because I got to read loadsa interesting books)
So basically i want about 70% Marx 30% Althusser in relation to the text....
I'm basically going to say the vision Marx had and then Althusser's reinterpretation of marx's ideology and basically how it all failed in Columbia as portrayed by Marquez showing a number of downsides of communism.
I'm just thin on the ground with the FACTS
your uni has a library website? with a search function? not being snarky, but itll stand to you if you rent out a couple of books on this, take about 12 a4 pages of notes of FACTS, then get typing.
whens it due?
I have several sources, but it's just a bit too thick for what I need. I need basics and I need to be able to relate it to the book. I have about two pages of quotations I can use and a two page essay plan and two pages on Marx, but I just don't feel I will fill 2500 words on it.
I currently have about 6 secondary sources. Beginning theory is the best one so far. I guess it's not so much Marx, but more Althusser and how he reinterpreted marx's theory. All you find on him is a couple of bits, but nothing relating to marx, which is odd, because that's who he based all his knowledge from
edit it into shape later. dont bother with intro's and conclusions and crap till you have 2,100 words (this may seem obvs, im just trying to help!)
i know feck all about that, so sorry no help from me :( you could always ask your tutor for a hand if its rly troubling you!
p.s. 3/4 sources is fine, i think... just to save you time readng for the next one
good luck chris!
i basically just wrote the first 500 words without thinking too hard and it seems okay, i'll let the next words come out like that too and then shape it more....then i'll probably emial it to my sister (philosophy graduate from warwick)
I'm working every day until next Wednesday.
I've still got a really nasty cough, should probably go to the doctors.
I don't have a doctors.
with a bunch of drunken rugby cunts who were literally jumping up and down in the bus and singing shit songs. there was a drunken girl behind me too with vom all over her face and it stank. i tried playing my mp3 really loudly to drown them out but it didn't work
i'm walking next time
then lectures from 9 till 6. then i think i've another essay to do tomoro night for Friday. THEN DEATH.
has been done between the hours of 1 and 6 in the morning.
Hi. I'm a vampire.
THNKS DIS YOU PRICK
looks amazing. nice cover of running up a hill too
why don't they just artificially inseminate a percentage of the female ones to breed more humans? then they wouldn't run out of blood.
WHY DOOD, WHY??!!?
and that is by far the lamest
I'm hoping it's just the fuse that's blown otherwise I'm going to be well upset.
