A few more hours and i am done with this chapter....

User: Natassia - 08 February 2010 01:15

Thanks for the birthday wishes, I am very nearly finshed but still faffing around...I always have to go through this process though. Will be glad when its handed in, I'm actually looking forward to writing my dissertation proposal and getting stuck into next semester's work, had a tough time personally this semester so this will be a fresh start.

Well done for your productive weekend, hope your day tomorrow goes well and you manage to get everything done! Nx

Good luck with it Chrisrolinski - you'll get there. It must be brilliant to be so close to finishing it all - I'm envious at least.

Must stay awake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(need to change music from swedish female songstress similar to Dido - to something upbeat!)

welcome back to the all-night thread.

I think this song is appropriate somehow: Rihanna "Rehab" - although instead of JT, the thesis is "my disease......And I'll never give myself to another
The way I gave it to you
Don't even recognize
The ways you hurt me
Do you?
It's gonna take a miracle to bring me back
And you're the one to blame"

Chrisrolinski, forgive my criticism, but you've got your choice of song all wrong...

You need to play this one...

Doo doooo doo dooo doo doo doo dooooo. Da dum da doo doooo doo doooo doo da doo doooo! Can you tell what it is yet?

Didn't think so...

Then it goes...

I said go if you wanna go, stay if you wanna stay...and thought I treated you like a child, I'm gonna miss you for the rest of my lifffffeIIIIIFFeeeee [insert crashing overtuned electric guitar] dooootthhhh! All I need is a miracle, all III neeeeeedddd is you [=PhD]

It's Mike and the Mechanics - you have to admire the chequered shirts and curly mullets in a weird sort of way...

Hah!

I think "Call the Shots" by Girls Aloud is strangely apt...

"I won't cry for all the hunger in my heart, no
I won't cry because I've made it through this far"

Not desperately nocturnal but having done 12 hours already today, I'm about to embark on another three hours. Knackered.

User: walminskipeasucker - 15 February 2010 22:26

Crap, working late tonight as well. Need to be done by the end of the year, only halfway through my data collection, and so much to write. There'll be many more evenings like this one.

User: chrisrolinski - 15 February 2010 22:36

Good luck!!!

I am doing nice work tonight on a piece I really like which is not the thesis, phew,

User: alpacalover - 15 February 2010 23:13

That sounds like a nice relief Chrisrolinski - enjoy (up)
I've just done about 2 hours work and managed to do some paper searching, and write 300 words :) After a 14 hour day of work (unfortunately little of it thesis), i'm off to bed to prepare for another day of it tomorrow!

Good luck wally and angelofthenorth!

User: teek - 16 February 2010 23:16

Anyone else up tonight, or am I riding the night train alone? (dear God don't let there be a guard like that one in Surrey who started showing me the porn on his phone).

I managed a pretty good day today but somehow still feel as if I haven't achieved enough. I'm finding it a real mental battle, rallying myself constantly throughout the day to keep going - and I've only just started the real writing. Still, I'm here and I WILL achieve more words before retiring for the night.

User: chrisrolinski - 16 February 2010 23:34


I am up doing corrections! choo choo....

User: teek - 16 February 2010 23:51

Hehe, full steam ahead Chrisrolinski!
