    Is it worth it? it ****ing better be, ive spent most of today in a library writing up conclusions and such to a number of practical classes, i have just finished the second of three (i have been working on these since ~10 am, it is currently 9:40pm) i have had a single half hour break for lunch and a nice nap on the bus home . . .

    Each report thus far has been about 11-12 pages, and my head hurts, and there isnt enough coffee in the world . . . my BTB is crying, she needs played, my wrist hurts from writing, sod, i hate this, only a year left . . . **** . . . piss . . . **** . . . **** . . .

    I should start my last one, i think it has to be in for 9am tomorrow . . . im not really sure, i think i might go into a corner and cry . . . goodnight

    How long have you known about the reports? When did you start on them?

    If this is as a result of you procrastinating, its your own fault.

    Well, pretty soon you'll have a day job, a family, and kids, and then you'll have plenty of time to play.
  8. True, but today is the only day i have been able to do them, honest

    We have known about them since the start of the semiester 7-8 weeks ago? thing is, both practicals only finished at the end of last week, and the control results were only availible from later on, on tuesday, and you can't do much with results if you dont have the controls to compare them too

    So, i didnt put it off that long . . . (for a change)

    And kelly, i think i'd be best not diluting the gene pool :smug:

    This leads me to believe that you don't have a leg to stand on concerning your prediment.

    Aww, and miss out on little mohawks? I hope not.

    Good luck on the projects. I'm kind of in the same boat myself this week, although it is admittedly partly-to-mostly my own fault. Which is why I've logged record TalkBass hours the last couple of days -- sheer avoidance. I'll be up late tonight!
  13. Shuttit you :spit:


    Haha, yeah, i tend to spend alot of time on here when im meant to be doing work too, i think im just going to forgo the punishment (-10% or -15% or something) and hand it in later tomorrow, spend the day working on it, try and come down off the coffee right now . . .

    I can bet you all i will be on here in about 18 months time, ****ting it, and doing a 10,000 word dissertation on my hons project the night before its due :smug:

    aw crap. :(


    well, at least i have my schedule planned out where i can have a lot of time to spend on my advanced lab class.

    and it still beats writing essays on books. :D
  17. This is true, but its a pain in the ass when you cant just write "it didnae work" for when your last gel electroflouresis goes wrong :mad:

    Meh, doesnt matter

    Stick with it, bro. Yes, it's worth it. Once you got it it's one of the few things that can't be taken away, and that, I think, is worth something.

    Just ignore the people who ain't done it or those who are so perfect they've never made a mistake about anything, know what I'm saying?
  19. you mean ignore the a**holes on both sides of the fence :p
