Uni student's thread.

As far as I know from using the search box, this doesn't exist yet, so being me, I thought I'd create it.

As students, there is a lot we go through, but often, the unacknowledged side of uni is all that damned work, so I won't be surprised if there is a fair few of us on here. Hence this topic, erm, yeah, be studenty, you know you want to.

Work is not going well.
It's just deadline after deadline that won't be met..



"Be nice. Think happy thoughts. Champion silver linings. Love all things (not just cute things like babies and kittens) & when you do love - love like they do in power ballads (you know like on a cliff with the wind in your hair and your eyes shut, knowing you'll never know love like this). Watch out for dog poo. Smile at people - even grumpy ones. Remember anything is possible & whatever you do always try to look on the bright side."

I've missed a week's worth of lectures, less said about that the better.

That is combined with not having started my essays, I swear my department is run by sadists who like to put everything on the same deadline.

The unacknowledged side? Isn't work the whole point of going to uni?

^^^ that's what I thought Heidi but I do agree it can be a pain in the back side! I've had to ask for an extension for my essay as it's due tomorrow and I've kinda only done 300 words :/ Stupid brain not working!

well, when you think about the general perception of students amongst the general public, we mess up their streets in the areas they live, we drink heavily and have loud parties and we have too much free time.

yeah it pisses me off when people think thats all you do - party.

You cant do that in your final year, its far too much work to do, and so little time to do it.

I can't do that in my 1st year! I swear our timetable is the worst out of all the degrees at my university. 30 hours is just not right. Negative marking is DEFINITELY not right. 6 hour labs twice a week are just plain insanity. I have to plan about a weak ahead when I go out, and it's usually just one night after which I have to do MORE work on a bitchin' hangover.

Ouch.
And i thought i had it bad.
I don't have many hours in uni, but the amount of reading/ seminar work/ coursework/ essays i'm supposed to do without a reading week is ****ing ridiculous.

& can i just say....student loan=Gone.
It's a bad bad time.

i have hardly any contact hours
all mine is reading and researching in own time
which means you have to be good at planning your time really
which is where i find the problem.

my planning sucks and i underestimate how long it takes to do things

Yay uni... I have to start planning my lovely dissertation "Eutrophication processes in shallow bottom lakes in the Norfolk Broads" Oh the joy.
