    I've just ctrl+fed for every single instance of a 'z' in my 23,000 word document, to ensure the greatest possible brutalisation of Americanisms.

    So glad I didn't see this thread before I finished Uni. Done two essays in the last month, B in my dissertation, B- in my 'Rage! Writers Change the World' module. Two very late nights (one all-nighter), punctuated with sunrises, red wine and pizzas. I don't think this thread would have helped!

    hmm. i'm fucked tbh, exhausted. i feel bad not having anything for the tutorial tomoz (missed last week cos i didn't have anything then either :oops:) as it's a group project and we should be producing group designs by now. i just have zero interest in this project, been putting all my energies into my journal/personal stuff recently. i know i won't fail so i'm seriously lacking motivation atm. and i have to keep an eye on my head which has been a bit wonky of late.

    i know i can come up with *something* at the last minute and today isn't quite last-minute enough for me :oops: but still, i'm taking the rest of the day off.

    edit: i'm gonna go in and try to do as much as i can on the group part: choosing designs that work together etc. and just be upfront that a) i have no designs to contribute at this stage and b) i don't give a shit if my work isn't part of the final piece as long as i haven't let anyone else down.

    So I've got 72% for my coursework, which is a grade 2. (You need 85% to get grade 1) However even if I managed to buckle down to revision I've no chance of getting 70% for my exam to maintain the 2. And as it is I'm not buckling down at all. Just hope I do enough to get a 40% pass.

    Blurgh

    Not an essay but still

    Just finished my 6 week hospital placement (nursing). I was in the Rapid Admission and Planning Unit here in Darwin so got exposed to all manner of gross tropical unpleasantness. I've seen some pretty heavy duty stuff this time :eek:

    Congratulations on your endurance then. :cool: I expect that placement weeds out quite a few who already had doubts.

    Well in our debrief today they let slip that over 1/3 of students currently on placement are on "learning agreements". I had the very strange experience of going to my prize giving ceremony this evening (I won an outstanding academic achievement award for last years study). All these usual gruff and generally sour faced old bags were really nice to me and it turns out they had all been talking about me and my study buddy (who also won an award) and our progress. Lots of encouragement to come back and continue our studies. At the end of the evening we were left with the person now responsible for post grad studies who was blind drunk and "venting" about her opinion on abortion :facepalm:

    Still, an interesting night was had and they were severing proper good wine.

    when's your exam?

    surely we don't break up for summer until exams are finished?

    ShiftyBagLady willy nilly

    I'm not entirely sure. I think it's on the 11/06. They keep changing it.
    In my mind I have broken up already. I only need to pass this thing, the result makes no difference to me whatsoever and I don't even enjoy the subject. Sofuckit.
