The nocturnal workers' thread


User: 404 - 18 April 2010 02:23

anyone around tonight? I'm re-writing methodologies chapter. It was a nightmare in the first place, it is like re-living a nightmare. :-)

Hi 404

Not night time for me, but I'm also here working. Can relate to reliving a nightmare - I'm rewriting my lit review. What should've been just an update has turned into a complete rewrite which is taking me forever. Good luck with your work tonite!

I am still trying to complete my conclusions and future work, but i am working verrrryyyyyy slow ...i think i will make some tea. I Dont have chocolate.. maybe its just as well.

User: amanda - 18 April 2010 21:33

I THINK I FINISHED MY CONCLUSIONS ...................................i still need to read through them though

Arraaagh, I just want to curl up and watch something entertaining on iplayer but I HAVE TO MAKE SOME SERIOUS PROGRESS. This has gone on so long and I feel like I'm falling by the wayside in every respect (job prospects, publication output, conference attendance), all because I keep putting things off in order to finish the thesis and the months just pass me by (as does life in general) while I sit here and grapple with sentences. I'm staying up tonight until I finish this section, I don't care how tired I get!

Good work vibes to everyone else braving the lonely hours.

User: amanda - 18 April 2010 22:31

Kaymoy.. go for it.. u can do it...

User: kaymoy - 18 April 2010 22:34


Thanks Amanda, just knowing there's another PhDer out there working helps. Congrats on those conclusions!

User: amanda - 18 April 2010 22:41

Thanks Kaymoy.. although my supervisors still need to read them to see what they think..
