The nocturnal workers' thread

User: Keep_Calm - 06 May 2010 02:13

Good luck with the article Chrisrol.

Well, here I am. Mid-point viva in the morning. Yes, I know I should be in bed but there's no point in turning up at all if I can't answer any of the questions and I procrastinated all bloody day. WHYYYYYYYY. I didn't think it was a particularly big deal, the ones I've heard of have been pretty informal, but my sup has made it in to a big deal and sent me an e-mail earlier, all 'good luck, I know you can do it!' Which made me scared and ashamed.

Anywho, I'm probably chatting away merrily to myself here.

I've not been to sleep tonight. My work load is utterly ridicuolousat the moment. :-(

User: chrisrolinski - 14 May 2010 00:26

Back again. (sprout)

User: Natassia - 06 June 2010 23:04

I have revived this tonight as I want a little bit of company - have three deadlines for two different modules tomorrow and my editing seems to take forever, not happy. Hopefully I'll be able to go to bed by 1-2am. Anyone else up working? Nx

I am here on the 4th draft of my thesis introduction (yes, I know, kill me)

Good luck!

User: Natassia - 06 June 2010 23:34

Well I'm only at MSc level so I probably don't have much to complain about really, I feel quite pathetic now!

Good luck, try to get some sleep tonight, I've been following your story and you're doing brilliantly!

Not at all - work loads are all relative - so good luck with it all! I'm wacking on the kettle and the loud music! window open wide for cold air to keep me awake!

I'm contemplating having another cup of tea as well, feel so lonely, everyone has gone to bed....:-(

User: teek - 12 August 2010 02:34

I do like to revive this thread now and then! It has acted as a loyal witness for many of my solitary nights of tea and typing. Nights just like this in fact. It's 2.30am, I've been up all day, took a Nytol almost two hours ago -and yet somehow feel more work-friendly than ever. Not that I'm exactly setting the computer alight, I am after all, on PGF :p

Anyone else dribbling into their laptop while the kettle boils dry?

User: algaequeen - 28 August 2010 22:03

Just thought I'd sign on here tonight! I'm not usually a big night owl, unless I'm dancing of course :p however having just had the most ridiculous tiff with my boyf who has gone off in a huff, I'm too mad to go to bed so thought I'd continue on with the writing! Which leads me to PGF, naturally! Anyone else stuck in PhD land this fine evening?!

User: algaequeen - 29 August 2010 01:32

Whoo its 2.30 am here so I'm off to bed. Almost finished with this results section, just have to tweak a few things tomorrow, then print and read on monday and do final changes. I've done 20 tomatoes today, almost forget how to close my eyes at this stage...

Hey AQ, well done, 20 tomatoes is more than enough for one day, and congrats on getting results done!

I'm not working tonight, was earlier, but just up cos complete insomniac at the moment! GRRRRRR!

I hope everything ok with your bf, he'll understand, i keep pissing off mine too but he gets it and we work our way through it.

Hope you get some good shut eye ready for tomorrow!
hugs, AL x

User: algaequeen - 30 August 2010 22:07

whoo back again, although I don;t think I'll be in for the long haul, I was shattered yesterday! :) Anyone else up late working?

User: walminskipeasucker - 30 August 2010 22:22

I'm working late tonight - probably till about 1 or 1-30-ish I think. I've got a chapter to finish drafting.
