Thanks for comments about my love-life, you’re right Slizor, I need to stop need being a coward and grow a pair
Don't want to start a thread within a thread Teek, but...
she's in her 1st year, I'm in my 4th year, she's moving away for fieldwork soon, I'm moving away after i finish in 3 months. She's great, i really like her, i think she likes me, but i don't know. I'd like to find a way to continue to see and get to know her, but I'm too afraid to tell her this because i don't know what she wants - what if she doesn't want to start anything with me? - and i don't want to scare her off or stop being friends with her.
...beans spilt all over the thread!
What a great idea Teek.
So far today, i:
got into the office before 10am;
got hold of a paper i've been itching to get hold of (thanks to fellow Forumers);
got an email from a girly i like about plans for the weekend :$
written 250 words (and counting) of my thesis
oh, and it's sunny. i can't take credit for that, but i'm gonna!
My library is woefully inadequate when it comes to journals (e and paper).
Is anyone able to get hold of a pdf of this:
Lander ES, Green P, Abrahamson J, et al. (1987) Mapmaker an Interactive Computer Package for Constructing Primary Genetic Linkage Maps of Experimental and Natural Populations. Genomics, 1, 174-181.
I'm desperate for this paper.
...anyone have access to this paper:
Hunter RD, Stone LM (1986) The Effect of Artificial Photoperiod on Growth and Reproduction in the Land Snail Cepaea-Nemoralis. International Journal of Invertebrate Reproduction and Development, 9, 339-344
It's a bit niche, thought it was worth a shot anyway.
Many thanks you lovely Forumers :-)
i'd strongly advice looking at some PhD thesisesisis from your library as soon as possible. It's the best (and only) way to understand exactly what writing a PhD thesis involves. I only saw a PhD thesis in my 3rd year and was shocked at just how much work needed to be done in terms of wider reading, structure, cross referencing e.t.c.
One more thing, it's best to have a look at around 5 thesisisisses. You'll notice that the structure and style of each one is different. For example, a laboratory based project may have a separate Methods chapter that is cross-referenced in subsequent chapters whereas, a computer simualtion study may not have a separate methods chapter. It's usually best to look at projects similar to yours.
