I get this enough with essays, I can't imagine how awful it must be with a dissertation!

The only thing stopping me is that it's £15 to bind it and £10 to print it all again!

Damn, that's like two 18 inch pizza's and a crate, not worth it man!

Just let it go man. It sounds like you've worked your arse on it, so I doubt you'll be able to improve it anymore than you already have. Just try and switch off, forget about it and focus on getting ready for exams and shit or whatever it is you have left to go :yes:

Just focus on the depressing thought that in a few years you'll be desperately wishing you were back at Uni and would do anything to do a dissertation again!

Till 19 will be now known as the TILL OV DEATH.



I think the thing that freaks me out more than this happening is when I see some of the coffin dodgers walking around that in the 8 years I have worked for the company that this is a first.


:lol:
You raise a good point though. There are special days in town when the dust wagon brings the walking dead into town... one bloke pretty much creaks and farts every step he takes in the Wetherspoons, One look like he had just been dug up and dragged in for shits and giggles - yet I have never seen any fall of their perch... touch wood.



Made me lol. :lol:

There was a 3 vehicle crash that closed all the roads earlier. It was on a bend so I bet it was a dodgy overtake. My brother was just behind it and saw a child being dragged out as well as firemen pulling a car apart to get someone out. It sounds pretty gruesome :(

Home alone for two weeks. This is something I'm really bad at. My stupid imagination goes into overdrive and makes me fucking panic at night time.

Being on one's own for a stretch is a serious recipe for going mad indeed. Have a meaningful hobby is all I can say.

i love being on my own at home

mainly because it means I can link up the laptop to the big tv screen downstairs and watch shit on a 40 inch monitor.

Id drink myself into stupidity if I was alone for 2 weeks to be honest. Alternatively id do it socially by inviting a fuckload of people up here. Never going to happen. My parents rarely have holidays ha.

When I was in my late-teens I probably threw about 2 parties, and most of them were me frantically rushing about with kitchen towels and bottle of Febreeze so nothing permeated into the upholstery.

We were sitting on the front lawn in camping chairs saying hello to passers by. 4am, Had music blasting through the front window, no issues. Find it amazing that other people have guys knocking on the door to keep the music down. Never had that problem, its ace.

Oh, fuck you :lol: For me it was always an Impaled Northern Moonforest affair with the 'someone sleeping nearby' growing up.
