The nocturnal workers' thread

User: chrisrolinski - 17 February 2010 02:06

Corrections are killing me. Word cutting! gah! :-s(down)(sprout)

User: teek - 17 February 2010 02:20

Smelly sprouts indeed. I cut a massive chunk earlier and the descent in word count almost caused me to weep into my laptop. Tonight I seem to have worked my little brain to shreds and yet haven't gained a single word, just a page of (hopelessly inadequate) notes. In fact I#m pretty fried, I think it'll be one more tomato then off to bed. Good luck!

Hi there I just wanted to post on this as I am also a bit of a night owl at times on trying to study, I wish I could get up at 6am every morning and study right through the day but I always seem to end up starting after midnight, hence my posting at 7am. It easier at times to concentrate when the whole world is asleep.

Is anyone working late tonight, because I am. Although I've made some progress so far, it's not as much as I would have liked.:-(

User: mathkitty - 19 February 2010 23:15

I'm working late tonight too. Supervisory meeting Monday and family dinner Sunday means tonight and all tomorrow I'll be working. Probably Sunday morning and late night Sunday too. Have to switch from reading texts though, starting to nod off. Keep at it!

I'm working tonight too! Just about to start...

User: mathkitty - 20 February 2010 00:38

Welcome to the gang appletini!

User: Appletini - 20 February 2010 00:58

Thanks! It's not going very well thus far, but I've no doubt that having 'Question Time' playing on iplayer is to blame for that...

Hope you're faring better! x

It's a Friday and the end of the week for normal employed folk. There's probably an illegal rave taking place somewhere, or a bar open that's full of trendy urbanites. I'm 28 and supposed to be living it up. After this PhD, I'm never doing another one.

User: walminskipeasucker - 20 February 2010 01:55

Ahh, crap. Didn't happen for me today. There's always tomorrow though.

User: chrisrolinski - 20 February 2010 09:17

Saturday is practically working nocturnally. choo choo....

User: angelofthenorth - 04 March 2010 23:21

Still at it. Tasteful garb of choice tonight = flannel pj bottoms, a retro giant cotton nightshirt and knee-high fluffy socks.

I am rocking this look ;-)

User: angelofthenorth - 05 March 2010 03:17

Ooof, gotta be bedtime.

User: Keep_Calm - 05 March 2010 03:21

Ugh, I'm here. Marking terrible essay after terrible plagiarised essay. I have a meeting at 9 am and this is the second time in 5 days I'll be getting less than 4 hours sleep.

Choo choo indeed.

Ugh. Got to bed at 4.09am and have breakfasted, dressed (in a fashion) and am back to the chapter.

@ KeepCalm - that sounds like hell. Hope you don't fall asleep during the meeting.
