User: chrisrolinski - 11 April 2010 22:58

Anybody working tonight? (down)(sprout)

I shall be here for hours, listening to mellow Icelandic post-rock as I type...

Hi Chris,
I'm afraid i'm just about to get off the train, i've just finished for the night!
I hope you have a productive one! Enjoy the rock! :)

I live in Switzerland, and at 11p.m I can not see any light in the other buildings, all people are sleeping. I feel that I am the only person in this country who is still awake. But I do my best work at night.

Ohh Switzerland! I used to live in Germany and I lived in a quiet of suburb of Berlin. When I was working on the thesis in the night I could walk around in the snow late at night and not see anybody!

Listen, listen, tap, tap,
page after page, crap, crap,
transcribing all day long, unable to listen to songs,
and now it's the night, yawn, yawn,
hopefully I'll be in bed before dawn.

I'm on the Midnight Express tonight, and probably will be for most nights for the foreseeable future. Never mind though because one day I'm going to finish.

lol chrisrolenski.. all this work is getting to u .. i just sat down to do some work but i am really not in the mood to do any

User: chrisrolinski - 17 April 2010 21:27

Listening to frivolous pop from the 90s is the only way of denying to myself how serious the thesis process is!

So aged and bitter. Somebody thought I looked 20 today - which amazes me. I am 26 - almost 27. I thought this process had aged me like the chalace in Indiana Jones!

Back to work......I'll be here until 2am!

User: amanda - 17 April 2010 21:33
