i feel a bit ill, maybe some dodgy sushi? doubt it though, probably from too much sugar/not being active enough. how are you?
aw no, hope you feel better. i'm tired but i can't sleep...which is a bit annoying haha
also i think this thread has dissapeared maybe this will make it come back
i'm dying of some sort of cold/flu also i had a massive nosebleed this evening all over the floor i wiped it up though
i wish i was out partaying
how did you get a nosbleed? and are you ok
(something about partying hard with a nosebleed just like andrew wk)
dunno i just get them from time to time it's a hinderance to say the least :9
All i did was watched four Lions today.
my friend says its good but her taste in films is hit and miss
and incredibly bleak at the same time. A couple of the terrorists are bumbling beyond belief though. i wont spoil the ending
i shall watch it
how are you?
i have a hot water bottle now <3
It's pretty rubbish.
Why do people (including my dad) like these movies?
are you including the first die hard film in that sweeping statement?
I seem to be running out of people to transplant my tedium onto. I've kinda written about 5000 of the 6000 words I need before Monday, but they're all a bit rubbish and don't answer the question and don't form any coherent argument anyway, so I'm about to have some pizza and start again. Could be a late-ish night; but then, maybe it's best to get some proper sleep tonight and work all day tomorrow & then have the energy to work into the night if (ok, when) I have to? Hmmm.
Then when you wake up tomorrow you will realise the 5000 words will probably do. Spend a couple of hours doing the extra 1000 words, then feel good about yourself.
I won't be starting entirely from scratch, and I know what I'm writing about, I've just got to put it all together and keep it under 6600 words. And then spend hours writing up my references.
Tbh, the earliest I've gone to bed this week is about 2:30, there've been a couple of times past 4, so I don't think half an hour of sleep here or there is too big a thing.
When did I last post here? About an hour ago? I've knocked together a solid 700 words since then, so at that rate job's a good'un. I didn't have any pizza in the end though.
Facebook tells me it is FOUR of my friends' birthdays today. Exciting.
That last bit was a bit longer, but I've finished my first section. There are going to be six, plus intro & conc, but the rest won't be as long. So, that word count looks alright. I'm going to bed.
One day, we'll laugh at references, at footnotes, at old mens idea of how to speak.
One day, we'll be free.
but there's a program that formats your references etc for you as you input them as footnotes - come the end of the essay, your bibliography is finished. Think it might be called Endnotes, on reflection? What university do you got to?
Yeah, I've heard of Endnote, but I use OpenOffice and I'm not sure it's compatible. And it presumably still involves you having to type them in somewhere, anyway? The problem really is more my "system", or lack of it. I have more or less everything written down... somewhere.
Anyway, it's 3am and I have FINISHED. Well, I haven't, I've got 7000 words and I need to get it down to 6599 at the very very most, but that shouldn't be too hard (there's always ways when you read it back). Most pressingly is this question of references - with the much shorter 2500 word essay I finished on Friday, by way of example, I started the referencing business around 11:30pm, worked til I went to bed around 4:30, and still had about an hour's worth to do when I got up. It's all my fault, I know...
Less than 3 hours, a new personal best! *sigh*
Right, now I've just got to get shot of 400-odd words and get along to the library to print it and the other one off. Oh yeah, and I do have a couple of quotes and things to doublecheck in the library when I get there... Still, I've got TEN AND A HALF HOURS 'til it's due in and it's only half an hour walk to the library. EASY.
i went to leeds met but spent a lot of time for some reason in the labs at the uni of. GOOD TIMES.
I'm at Leeds Uni, is that Met-speak for library? Anyway, I'm not in one, but I'll probably go to Boyle. I probably get equal amounts of books from both though - my subject uses stuff scattered around all the various political, sociological, economic, historical, social-policy-ological sections.
PS: I've just finished taking those 400 words out. WAHEY! DONE DONE DONE DONE DONE DONE DONE. I might have a shower.
The deadline is Tuesday. Does this do-able?
if you've sorted out your planning, writing it up can just take a day, from my experience. if not,plan/research tomorrow, write furiously monday, hand it in tuesday
You just need to get in 'the zone'
in the hope that i will then be able to sleep fantastically well tomorrow night, thus fixing my battered and broken sleeping pattern in one night in time for school.
and as i was just telling the tinychat people, i'm going outside to lie down in the snow for a bit. like, i'm not going to try to freeze to death or anything, i've got LOADS of clothes on, it's just that i feel like lying down in the snow for a bit so that's what i'm going to do.
that was great though
i'm really tired but i just like staying up this late now
i'm going to eat some toast
except for the toast bit. I've just had pitta bread and houmous.
HEY YOU GUYS
