coursework, coursework, COURSEWORK! :x

I'm so not gonna finish this.ever. Let alone by Monday.
If anyone knows rough estimates for how everything for putting a 50,000 festival/outdoor event costs, I could use your brains right now. :|

Oh well its only thursday... BUT oh wait. I still haven't finished that coursework for tomorrow, whoops better do that tonight, shouldn't take too long... but OH WAIT! I gotta go flyer this event we're doing at the weekend even MORE, in fact more so than I thought since some people don't seem to bother with things calling promoting, despite being the project manager AND living in the target area and saying 'I've got this covered I've got that covered', then when you chase her up, changes the subject and says "don't worry about tickets, people will come" ARE YOU FUCKING MAD?!? Theres next to no tickets sold. but you know we'll faff around wasting the budget on pretty decorations and inviting big important people and sponsers (for free) to an event where no ones gonna be there... Whats wrong with people?! am I the only one who thinks promoting and selling tickets is kind of important?? This is gonna be the most embarrasing thing i've had to call myself a part of in my entire life! and I can do jack shit about it! this isn't even my area, I'm in charge of one spot light and being a taxi driver, it seems. why'd we have to get a fucking irish act anyway, another waste of budget, there was someone the same who would have done it down the road for peanuts! not like their famous or owt. bloody patriotic dumb ANNOYING cow. I just want it to be over I really do. Or it not to happen so I can just get wound up by this other coursework I would like to do well in that is taking far too long.

Coursework pissed me off on Monday, had to do a 3000 word project, which isn't so bad, but the actual data collection and such took ages. Anyway, it was due in 4pm Tuesday.

I finally finished it around 1am on Monday night/Tuesday Morning... then suddenly realised I'd made a massive error in collecting my data, which completely changed my results and made everything I'd written invalid. So I made 2 cups of black 'sludge' coffee, and did an all nighter, doing 3 weeks of data collection and writing up in one night/morning.

I finally got the bugger handed in at 3.50pm though, woohoo.

Still, I'm pretty sure it'll be crap, but I don't care, I'm glad I got it done.

Now I've just got one exam and a dissertation to do and I'm finished with education forever :D

Waking up this morning and feeling as crap as I did yesterday morning ... when I had felt a little better last night! Also knowing that work will be banking on me going in as most everyone else is off today ... and knowing for that very reason it will be crap from beginning to end and I will be unable to cope with that today but if I turn in will be expected to do so! :(

I think I'm back off to bed! :|

Rise of Nations. Specifically the Spanish. I spend ages methodically building up my resources and troops. They seem able to pull an army out of thin air in nothing flat.
