How on earth did that happen?

It’s the time of year for finishing off the last few assignments before escaping to gorge yourself on Christmas goodies, so I thought I’d share my work plan!

Step 1: Read the assignment, normally a few days after the last one was finished.

Step 2: Spend a few days considering the question, and decide whether or not it is interesting. If it is interesting, begin research, if it isn’t, ignore it until…

Step 3: It’s the night before the deadline, so it’s time to write! But not right away, first comes a few hours of procrastination, mostly consisting of youtube and taste of awesome.

Step 4: At around 4-7am it’s time to write, so the essay gets hammered out in a few hours. This goes a lot easier if the question was interesting and I’ve been reading for a few weeks, but it never takes more than a 5 hours to finish an essay from this point even if it’s the single dullest question in existence.

Step 5: Run home, shower, run back, hand in the essay, and get some much needed rest!

And this is what will happened last Friday and will happen next Friday, except there will be no much needed rest because I have another radio show 8-10pm next Friday… So tune in and join in the fun that results from a night of working hard instead of sleeping!

Mixed bag

What a mental week. Possibly my best attendance this year and got so many things sorted! Yet, still no real work done on any of my assignments for this year. Because I’m just brilliant like that, clearly.

List of assignments to do include;

One overdue critical review on one book from a set list.

Two increasingly imminent full length essays on very different topics.

One presentation that is far to close for comfort.

In preparation for these I have scribbled notes scattered around my desk, and finally have all of the set texts! Quick tip; Blackwells can be pretty useless and take months to deliver a single book, and then deliver another one within days. Order books early if you want to avoid being skinned alive by overworked and nouty tutors.

In other news, I have a radio show next Friday from 8pm-10pm. Tune in if you can but I will warn you to expect explicit tunes and banter in the last hour!

Woop woop!
