Footnotes are so boring! 400 to check!

Plates: illustrations used in the thesis like prints, watercolours, oil paintings etc

My eyes are falling out of their sockets!!!

Well, good luck Chrisrolinski. My fingers are hurting so I can't type any more. It's a good excuse for me to wind down and get ready for bed.

User: shoulder - 04 May 2010 01:06

Is anybody working tonight? I have to write and write until dawn to make up for weeks of procrastination. Am I on my own tonight?
(My first post, but I have lurked for months.)

Hi Shoulder, I'm in. I have a mock viva for my mid-point viva (is this making any sense?) tomorrow morning. Have suddenly realised I don't understand what anything I've written means and can't answer any questions. Hope your night is going better!

User: shoulder - 04 May 2010 02:48

My writing is flowing like mud and the clock seems to be ticking away very fast, it'll be morning before long and I with nothing done! Worst of it is this isn't even PhD work I'm doing, it's writing reports for my research assistant job.
As for a mock viva - isn't that something you should get a good night's sleep before? ;)

I am writing a article due tmrw, up on the night train. Anyone else? (sprout)

User: BilboBaggins - 05 May 2010 00:03

I'm online, but not PhD-ing (all completed now). Just wondering how hubby's going to get home tomorrow with Scottish airspace closed down ... Surfing all sorts of alternative travel options!

User: chrisrolinski - 05 May 2010 00:05

Good luck finding a way home for him! (up)

User: BilboBaggins - 05 May 2010 00:09

Thanks! And good luck to you too with your article.

User: chrisrolinski - 05 May 2010 04:10

Still here, another hour to go and then done! (up)

User: chrisrolinski - 05 May 2010 05:23
