Just want you all to feel sorry for me to be honest, as I have been sat in doors for the majority of this luxurious weather doing my methodology and literature review :eek:h: I actually hate my life right now!

NOBODY EVER GO TO UNIVERSITY :blink1:

:iagree:

My deadline is thursday morning. I currently have at least 5200 words to do. :flushed:

Why do I leave assignments to the last minute?

On a positive note, my procrastination has lead to an increase in my fitness and my corps knowledge.

Edit: The sentences of my structure are rapidly deteriorating

Dissertations are rubbish.

I managed to leave starting my 3rd year dissertation till 3 days before the hand in. Managed to smash out 17,000 words in 3 days and nights. Not fun.

Currently sat on the patio working on my 4th year dissertation which is a group project! Complete nightmare trying to get everyone organised, especially when English isn't the first language for 2/5 of the group.

:uglyhammer:

Tell me about it mate! The story of every students life I guess! We have the opportunity to do it earlier, don't be silly..."Don't do something today that you can do tomorrow"..that soon come back to bite you in the..!

Oh well, not long to go i guess then we have our quests for the green beret to look forward to!

Response to your previous message; Near Buxton, a small place called Chapel-en-le- Frith.

One question though, why are we sat on here with all this work to be done ahah..we will never learn :bigsmile:

I feel for you can mate, i really don't know how you left it to 3 days before your hand-in date, that must of been horrific!!

As far as group work goes i hate it, you have all ways got a couple of Idiots in your group that do half as much work as the rest. Got a group assignment going on at the minute as well. I don't which is more horrendous !

I know how you lot feel, just get it done with and look forward to some pleasant exams.

I had to complete my final year work a week early last year since I had to attend my POC, and it certainly made me more organised! Handing it in is the best feeling ever. No, actually, it's the first mouthful of cider afterwards.

Good luck lads!

As a 2nd year I'm pretending dissertations don't exist for as long as possible, though I am currently doing a module in preparation for it, which is the vaguest module I have ever done. Had a meeting with my tutor about it yesterday, I asked what I needed to do for the 10 minute presentation, and apparently they have no guidelines. I hate presentations and I hate not knowing what I'm supposed to do!

Oh well Easter next week :smile:.

It was a school boy error leaving it that late last year. Still haven't actually read what I wrote. Especially as it was a very boring topic.

Back out in the garden working away on my project, mixing it up with the evil russian press up program this week.

Dug, how'd you get on? Did you manage to get it in?
