I'm watching the hills have eyes. Rubbish film. What're you doing?
Plus you can't really 'teach' different social attitudes online, people really only form those engaging in actual human contact don't they? It's not like learning a fact or programming or something.
I had peanuts for tea.
I'm about to watch the latest episode of Cuckoo. Not been great this series I reckon, but still worth watching for Greg Davies.
Off up north tomorrow to see the folks for the weekend.
Give my regards to paradise and tell her I miss her.
Kicking back with a gin and tonic after a BIG SHOP and BIG HOUSE CLEAN before my new housemates move in.
saw one give birth through it's own back. It was like watching a load of black heads bursting. So, so grim.

i'm starting to wonder if my dissertation will ever be complete. i've written about two sentences today. i really hate myself quite a lot, right now.
but thanks anyway <3
They had a round dedicated to you.
but having managed to avoid details of said scandal, which made for a much more tense bake off experience than usual. payoff was a bit disappointing though, i was hoping for something a bit more outlandishly machiavellian
fun fact: i don't even like tiramisu that much
because i don't like the dessert tiramisu that much, and i also don't like myself that much. #needtochangethepast
Try not to sweat the diss too much as well. I did my entire undergrad one the day before it had to be handed in. I'm not recommending that but I'm sure it'll be okay.
because i always do this, and it's always okay. the problem is that i'm not sweating it, i'm just letting myself be really fucking lazy. i could spare myself the inevitable, excruciating 36 hours of absolute sleep-deprived panic if i just did some work, but nooooooo, that would be too sensible.
but am probably gonna end up with a merit overall out of pure laziness and apathy. but then the fact that i'm still pretty much guaranteed a merit just adds to the laziness and apathy.
really, really funny
I have 'the best set of marks' that my supervisor has ever seen and was set on getting a pure high distinction but I think I'm just going to pass my dissertation. Which will mean my masters is just a pass too.
but did you see about getting an extension? you should do that if you think it'll make the difference, especially if you've done that well so far they'll probably be cool about it
The main motivation to any essay is FEAR, fear of the deadline, fear of failing, fear of brain injury through lack of sleep and caffinated drinks. Great stuff.
Almost makes me want to go do a Masters. Almost.
cos you know that you can pretty much do the whole thing at the last minute, no problem, and starting it any more than a couple of weeks in advance would just be madness anyway. but when you have four whole months to write a dissertation, doing literally nothing for most of that time (and not even being able to enjoy it because of the guilt) just makes you hate yourself a bit.
Not four months worth, but I basically didn't do anything near the end, ended up with a 2:1 by not caring and yep not enjoying a fucking minute of doing nothing. It's not rational is it but sometimes it just happens. I think for me it was a part of depression, but the fact it still leaves me basically functional at the moment means I won't be sorting it out.
my mental health is fine. i'm just disgustingly, incomprehensibly lazy.
I'm still doing my literature review. It's due in a week. And I'm drunk.
Currently having an hour long bath whilst listening to BBC 6 music and making my phone wet.
Got a really important meeting ni the morning where i have to do a presentation in front of a board of stiffs. Proper shitting it. I hate public speaking.
Probably worth it even if it doesn't work.
a room suddenly filled with pendulous ballsacks/mams is not going to help anybody out
If one or more of them was really fit it would be really...distracting, I would've thought.
But if I hadn't prepared anything for the talk, maybe I would recommend it.
Quite chuffed actually
But now I'm in a bar on my own wanting to drink and everyone has gone home.
Need to d
I'm gonna need to make myself eat something. this is weird.
so much and sending me snide emails.
Found out today he's South African.
I meant to leave at about half 6 if not earlier. I actually left about fifteen minutes ago. oops. was good to catch up with some people though, expected no-one to turn up but they did.
currently using all my brain power to get off the train at the right stop. how hard can it be?
Someone high five me please
i fucking hate you.
can't believe i finished mine only seven weeks ago tbh
seems like ages ago
also, how did you manage to finish it without dying? asking for a friend.
It's about Alan Partridge. Managed to finish without dying by watching loads of Alan Partridge. What's yours in?
i wish my dissertation was about alan partridge.
someone give me a job please i'm great at everything ever
you'll be the most highly appreciated employee of all time
fairly sure i only did so well with mine because i talked about quite niche things that they couldn't be bothered to look into properly.
i forgot to mention it is an unpaid internship, but the experience will be highly valuable in your lucrative future career as a producer of dissertations on obscure books that nobody will ever bother reading
yo yo yo
my undergrad dissertation was about GRAPHENE
my masters one is gonna be on this
listening to this dj q https://soundcloud.com/djqmusic/dj-q-live-paris-social-club-paris-france-23rd-august-2014 mix it's wall to wall bangers \o/
going shoe shopping with my dad tomorrow :3
bought another book today (the book of other people. went to a v. good secondhand bookshop) but i keep feeling really bad that i don't know more about real life stuff when theres so much important real life stuff to learn
i know so much but i feel so empty. i'd give it all up for love
reckon the genius DJ Q has actually made the best mix of all time here
