Sneaks .. your spelling here doesnt seem too bad 8-)-- and NO I am not stalking you:$
now to transformers.. I thought I would watch transformers one last night because I wanted a recap since I watched it 7 years ago or something ridiculous like that!! LAWD!!! I doubt i will be going to the cinema to watch number three ... REALLY.. it was faff galore and megan fox in funny poses so we could see she had a fantastic stomach etc!! I was exhausted... and Optimus prime doesnt turn up till almost 3/4 way through the movie :-s considering he was the main reason I liked the movie in the first place .. I couldnt bare the cheese anymore and fowarded a bunch of it ... long story short ...THE HUMANS ARE A WATSE OF SPACE on transformers....grrrhhhh so once again .. I am not going to watch transformers as I couldnt bare to see more cheese!!!!
rant over ... anyone got any good procrastination movies in mind at the moment?8-)
;-) you are constantly making me laugh sneaks!!!(oohh by the way I am on my break now!!)
I know what you mean about spelling ... I usually start repeating repeating words( see what I did there;-))
When exhaustion checks in there is no fighting no amount of tomatoes could make you productive..... so off to bed with you as soon as you can, at least you will be nice and rested for the 2.30 start tomorrow;-).....
Thanks a lot for sharing though.....
Hey Natassia, its brilliant that you have some teaching planned- enjoy!
Ill share with you what my professor shared with me the first time I had to teach a seminar...
It doesnt matter what level the students are ( year 1,2,3 etc ) because YOU WILL know more than them in whatever you are teaching.... Do you remember how it was in undergrad uni ... who actually read before hand for the class? you might have the odd two students but other wise .. they will not have clue .. so as long as you relay the class interestingly with visuals and so on for them you will be fine .. you will be better read cause you actually have to prepare for the seminar .. they just have to turn up and act interested;-)
All the very best.. let us know how it goes(up)
oooh sneaks .. you sound like how I feel.. panic galore .. my submission date is also just a few days after yours .. I feel that by not saying it it means its still far away and an achievable goal!!! Im here nonetheless we will encourage each other .. I am trying to finish analysing my second interview set and its driving me up the wall.. Im so scared of contradicting myself that I keep reading things over just to check I said it right :-s
I am in good mood though considering I now officially have company .. cheers sneaks and good luck with it!!! - will keep you posted on how im going....off to tomatoe world now(up)
The midnight oil is to be burnt today... I will aim for as many tomatoes as possible with interludes of youtube entertainment... anyone fancy joining me? The draft submission date is looming and I still have loads to do... I wish a day had 36 hours that way we could study for 24 and sleep for 12 (aaahh bliss):p ... anyway I am around tonight if anyone wants to count tomatoes together or share tricks that keep you going in the wee hours of the morn...(up)
Sneaks , you are terrible.. you had me rolling with laughter.. with your evil plans hahaha!!! At least it is motivation to stay up late today working!!
I cant offer much help on the lit. review as yet .. but having clear research questions is really dependent on you the researcher .. because some thesis i have seen didnt have them and came across really well as they had clear arguments on the direction of thier thesis by only focusing on the aims of their research... Thats what I have seen!!
I have a few directional questions in mine, but I wouldnt say they are vital!!
I hope you have taken Bilbos advise, really an error like that is nothing to worry about ... i haven't done my viva yet, but in my upgrade document .. I discovered and error that I thought would mean they would just write me off..... and I know exactly how you feel I was sick to my stomach... On the day I went to my superv. and he advised that it was a superfluous mistake and I didnt need to worry ... all i had to do was own up to it at the start of the discussion in a very matter of fact way because it was correctable... I did.. and guess what the examiners hadnt even really noticed it... PHEW so long story short I was upgraded... I wish you all the very best in your viva ..
phew..goals one and two are done!! feel alive again.
goal three is progressing, will break it into bits using tomatoe.com...
Ady thanks for that, I think sometimes midnight works sometimes day works.. it just depends..
Well done star-shaped I cant wait for my first interview:-) , but first things first .. submit thesis.....
all the best everyone (up)
Thanks alot everyone for writing in!! I dont feel so alone in my madness now!!!
Ady I am so knackered today after a long day ... so im having an unexpected early night but will set the alarm to get up at 5 and enjoy the peace and quiet.. as you said time definately feels like it moves slower at that time...
I hope everyone is keeping on... I will be back to midnight madness, im sure probably tomorrow.. I just try to go with the flow sometimes ..If inspired why not?8-)
Sneaks - thanks for the heads up on transformers- I am glad geekville has many inhabitants ;-)
well had to work today, so only got in
1. goal one was achieved - quite pleasurable actually - loud music is healing(up)
2. goal two was also achieved
3. goal three - we will see I am flagging dangerously as I had a super late night and have to be up early tomorrow!! need to rest my body.
I will try a tomatoe or two before bed
Keep on everyone (up)
mackem_beefy - I couldnt agree more - I had what I will choose to refer as a Eureka moment last night / or rather this morning --- and I am in the write up stage - things seem to fall into place in the quiet and still of the night.
Timefortea- I love your positive spin on the situation - I hope she is feeling better now:-)
hope everyone is managing ok ... I had a super late night( you dont even want to know what time I knocked off:$)
Anyway goals for today!
1.Exercise for atleast 30 minutes ( real exercise, not a two minute squat attempt ...mmmhhh
2.print out important article to add onto theoretical framework.
3.tidy up discussion one.
thats all for now ...
Sneaks I wish someone would carte me off to TRANSFORMERS - I might hint at this over the weekend..... I have been in love with Optimus prime for forever(I know he is a robot - but still...) does that measn I am a geek? (up)
