I'm at work. And bored stiff. I totally don't want to do any work at all. Tres boring.

I've done all the references for my Tutorial paper, can't work on my module for education because I need the readings, and I can't really do much else. Meh.

I'm hungry. Can't eat until the last patient leaves, and that looks like it's going to be at least another 30 minutes. Dammit.

So yes. Bored.

Am I the only loser person stuck in front of a computer on a Saturday night?

I'm doing an education essay. Someone save me from my boredom...

It occurred to me this week that I should probably start working on the three essays that are due at the end of the month, considering I lost last weekend to sickness. Joy. Thus I have started one of the education ones. I'm getting bored with it, so I might move to History in a minute.

I'm loving education this semester; most of the work is subjective and personal reflection, so I can just make random notes for a few weeks and then type my heart out. Almost no research required. Fantastic.

I have to do 5 days worth of prac for one of the education subjects. Because I have nothing better to do with my time. I hate how they think that students live in this magical world where their entire lives are devoted to Uni and doing Uni work and turning up to Uni classes. *sighs*

*yawns* I need a nap.

Observation for the week: Bus drivers who consider it their personal mandate to break the land-speed record each trip are not cool.
mebfeath: (i has a bukket...more pirates!)
I have just emailed off my essay. Bibliography to follow tomorrow (long story) and then I just have to wait for the official verdict.

He had better give me a pass.

I'm feeling alot better today, which is good. Nose has stopped running, lung have stopped trying to leave my body, and even the headache is almost gone. I am sore all over from coughing, but that's to be expected. I'm pretty stoked at how quickly I've gotten better; usually these things drag on for weeks with me. Yay! God rocks!

Mmm...lunch...then a snooze, I think.

I'm sick again. Well, I'm getting better now. But still feel like crap. It's the usual; sinus, coughing, achy-sore muscles, swinging between shivering and sweating like crazy. Not cool. I hate it so.

No work tomorrow for me. I'm bummed because it was a long shift, and I feel bad, but I did tell them I was sick on Friday. And nobody cared. So, tough.

I must not be bitter. *sighs* I'm just feeling a bit used and abused, that's all. I'll get over it.

Essay is almost done; I'll finish it tomorrow. I did most of it yesterday, which was good - all I have to do now is finish one small section, do the intro and conclusion and references. I just don't feel up to it today.

*yawn* Time for a snooze, I think. If I can get warm enough.
mebfeath: (wickham is totally not awesome) here's an update.

Uni is over for the semester. YAYZ. Results out 4th July. Which is in a week. OOH. I want to know what I got for ancient history. Oh, and media studies. Considering I never got a piece of assessment back the whole semester. Awesome.

I am currently organising data input for my boss's cervical cancer prevention scheme in Vanuatu. Boring, but interesting. Don't ask me how that works. And don't ask how I managed to get roped into it, either.

Am recovering from sinus infection slowly. Feeling generally better, but sinuses are still giving me headaches, so they're obviously not.

Work is busy, as usual. No change there.

My husband is well. No change there either!

Umm...other than that, there's not a lot, really. Other than the usual catching up with family and friends. And each other. I feel like I haven't seen my husband in months. Not cool.

So yes. The end.

Even if I am sick, I have to sit my exam this weekend because the special exams are on the 18-20 July. I leave for Sydney at about 7:30am on the 20th for Gran's 90th.


So I either sit the exam this weekend, sick or well, or I risk having to change my flight or miss the exam. It will cost quite a bit to change the flight (if they'll even let me), and there's no way I'm missing the exam because then I'd have to do another subject next semester.

I will be sitting the exam this weekend.
mebfeath: (Wash  my hands...pirates!)
...they really suck at the timetable thing.

They're putting an education lecture right smack in the middle of a Wednesday.

Putting this into context:

- Every single third year Education student has to do this subject in this semester. You cannot go into fourth year without it.
- So far, this rules out at least 2 history subjects. The two I was going to chose from.
- I *told* the lady in charge this last week - that they can't put that lecture on at a popular time like that because no one will be able to do anything.


Going to bed now.
mebfeath: (Default)
I want my essay results. *whines* It's not fair. They're at uni all ready for me to collect and I can't for *ages* because I'm working. WOE IS ME. Maybe if I tell myself I have to get my essay done so I can take it in and get the results at the same time...or I could just email my lecturer. Hmmm.

Saw Pirates last night... )

We saw the 9pm session in Gold Class, and thus we didn't get to bed until about 1am. And I was up at 6am. Surprisingly, I don't feel tired. I did have a sleep for an hour in the afternoon, but still. I don't usually do well on 5 hours sleep.
mebfeath: (kronk is made of awesome. really.)
Someone remind me why I'm here?

I'm sitting here listening to four people tell me about their lives in the (mostly Brisbane) music/media industry. Two of the four are PhD students. And they're boring as hell. I don't want to have anything to do with the industry, really, so this is intensely boring. Mildly amusing at times, but mostly boring.

This is my final media studies lecture FOREVER. FOR. EV. ER. So exciting.

Ancient History exam this afternoon. Eek. Should probably use this time to study. Yayz.

Did I mention I'm bored?
mebfeath: (clouds and sky and ahhhh)
The last few days have been pretty intense, with minimal sleep, which is always a bad combination for Heather. Thus, I am tired and going to bed soon. Yay.

Skipped my ancient history lecture this afternoon; I'd already spent four hours in classes, and was pretty exhausted. Plus she's putting all the lecture notes up on the web, and the handouts are really comprehensive, so I'm all good.

Am researching for my media studies blog ([ profile] mstumusings). I completely forgot about it while we were away. Ooops. So yes; some stuff shall start appearing on their soon, hopefully. Please feel free to comment - I really would appreciate anything you guys think.

Anyway, bedtime. I'm tired.
mebfeath: (VM - wins)
My ancient history sent us a very confusing email on Friday. Basically, she marked the wrong answer as correct on one of the questions. Thus, the people who got it wrong got an extra half a mark, and the people who got it right didn't.

I got it right, apparently, and got an extra half mark, which put me at 77.5%, which is now a distinction (6) instead of a credit (5).

mebfeath: (wooooot!)
I can't believe it's finished.

All I have to do is the bibliography, and it's done.

It's slightly surreal, but damn, it's a fantastic feeling.

I now can focus on getting ready to go to Singapore.

I must, however, give the credit to God. I asked if I could have it all done and ready by tonight, and he answered my prayer. He rocks my world. Continually.
mebfeath: (kronk is made of awesome. really.)
Word count: 2694 (including quotes and bits from poems, which aren't meant to be included)

Real word count: somewhere around 1900-2000, I would guess. Like I'm going to work it out.

To go: section on Keats. Approximately one third of the essay.

*shrugs* Going to be over the word limit. Tough.

It is going well. I am happy. In fact, I am extremely happy.

Coming to you from our brand new, 19" LCD flatscreen. I am in love. And am completely spoiled for all other computers. Except for my mac which is still pretty.
mebfeath: (I feel like crap on toast)
I still feel sick. What is with this? I AM SUPPOSED TO BE GETTING BETTER, DAMMIT. It's probably not helping that the pollen count is in the bazillions today. *sigh*

I've even taken a whole day off Uni to get better. I'd better be awesome by tomorrow, or I will be grumpy. A WHOLE DAY devoted to getting better. And doing my essay, but still. One entire day. Well, with the exception of tonight - we're visiting Iain's parents for dinner cause Gran is up. But still. That's alot of time I could be doing other things. Like...uni.

The English essay is slowing beginning to make more sense as I research more. Which is lovely. However, I cannot guarantee that the final product will make much sense. Oh well; my aim is to pass. I have reached the point where I do not care; I would like a 5, however, if I pass, I will be happy.

Oh, and we managed to blow up another monitor. Do not ask me how, considering the box is fine, and the two aren't even connected. *sighs* So this time we're buying a new one rather than using the old box-type ones. Let's see how long this one lasts.

I think I have a fever. Still.

I'm sick. The first time this year. Dammit. I suppose it's good I'm sick now as opposed to in 2 weeks time. But still. Ick.

It's just the usual sinus stuff - I didn't really get enough sleep over the weekend, and my sinuses have been horrible the last week or so, so I should have seen it coming. I didn't feel all that great yesterday evening, so I guess that was my hint.

I'm going to try and take Wednesday off. I only have media studies lecture and tute, and an ancient history lecture. I'm not going to bother with the media studies stuff - it's useless. I'll just get the notes off the net and read the readings. I'll come in for ancient history though. We have a new lecturer for the second half of the semester, so I want to be around for that. I can't really take tomorrow off because I'm working with one of the specialists all day. I'll just sit upstairs and drink hot tea and suck vicks. I don't really have to do anything other than whatever he tells me, which isn't much. I should probably do some scanning or something...ah, I'll sort it out tomorrow. But yay for specialists.

I finished the media studies bibliography thing yesterday. YAY. I just have to hand it in now. I need to do that today otherwise I'll have to be here before 10am on Wednesday, which is what I don't want to do. Must remember.

All I have to do now is English. Yay.

It is written.

Total Word Count: 2624

(This is, of course, not including ancient sources - if I include ancient sources, it comes to 4763. Now we all see why I was panicking about having to include them.)

I am technically 600 words over, but tough. I'll read through it again anyway and probably chop bits.

*sighs* Now to tidy references, footnotes, etc.
mebfeath: (Default)
You know you're not 100% when the dimmed lighting in your lecture theatre is too bright. *squints*

I need some sunglasses. Too bright.
mebfeath: (Default)
I do not wish to read ANY. MORE. ancient sources. Not Tacitus, or Plutarch, or Pliny, or Suetonius.

I still have to read Tacitus, Dio, and probably some Josephus. *sighs*

I just have no motivation. None. I think it's because I'm tired. And because I've been doing this assignment since the DAWN OF TIME, DAMMIT.


Ok, so it's three weeks, but I've still got oooodles to read. And that doesn't include stuff written by people who are actually STILL ALIVE.

Heh. I'm never doing honours. You spend the whole year researching and writing ONE essay. When I say I have the attention span of a gnat unless I'm actually interested or about to fail, I mean it. Zippo.

Maybe I should start researching for media studies. That's technically due before ancient history....

Ooh yay ancient history lecture in half an hour. Excuse me while I shoot myself.

Note to self: can miss Media Studies lecture if required, considering he practically read from the slides and we get them after the lecture anyway.

So. Bored.

The stuff is interesting and everything, but seriously; I don't actually *need* to be here. I could be working on my ancient history assignment which I have to get done so I can start my english one which I have to get done so I can do my media studies one. All by April 28. Rockin. I can't start my english one yet because we don't get the topics until April 2. And I have no idea about the media studies one yet.

*sighs* I have alot of work to do.

I have the car today! Yay! It was SO NICE to drive in instead of sitting on a bus and walking and getting hot and waiting and changing busses and blah. Just lovely. And I can drive home and leave when I want and yay.

Oops, lecture starting again. *props eyes open*
