You aren't supposed to know everything, that's the point. You try to formulate an argument out of what you do know. The markers know that first years don't have the knowledge base and so mark to a lower standard than they do for final year students who are expected to have that knowledge base and be 'better' at what they are being asked to do.

I have finished writing my dissertation, only need to print it off, bind it and hand it in tomorrow. Hopefully my charts and tables which look fine on my computer but rubbish on my friend's will print off ok.

They can do that, especially if they are giving extensions. No point in giving them if they don't know when the work is going to be in, or don't know how you are getting on.

Handed my dissertation in, woooooo!

My dissertation draft is due on the 10th next month and I've not even started writing, let alone doing any research that isn't academic texts. I don't think I have time to write interviews and find people to interview in the next month, so I'm going to have to make the whole thing theoretical. Only problem is that someone else keeps reserving all the books I need and I end up taking them back to the library constantly, so, the texts just aren't there. I also need to go home for Christmas, which means working at my parent's house and I just know that I'm not going to get any work done there, let alone have enough privacy to carry out my research. Everyone in my department will have gone home by now, so I can't ask the uni for help.

Ok, its only a draft deadline, but it is the only feedback I'll be able to get before the final deadline. I'm guessing I'm not the only person who's been in this type of situation, but yeah, it worries me because the dissertation is worth so much of my degree.

Sorry, you've probably already said, but what is your dissertation on? And when is the final deadline?

I had that problem with books too, I seemed to be fighting a postgrad for the same ones at the same time.

As a little kid you believed in fairytales,
that fantasy of what your life would be: white dress; prince charming who would carry you away to a castle on a hill.
You closed your eyes and had complete and utter faith.
Eventually you grow up. One day you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears.
But the thing is, it's hard to let go of that fairytale entirely because almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope, of faith,
that one day they will open their eyes and it will come true.

Ok I have a quick question for everyone...

I have been given extensions for all 4 of my assignments till the friday before next semester starts because of events that have happened in my life recently.

There have just been 2 essay hand in dates gone past this week (which included 2 of the essays that I have yet to do) and people keep asking me how i did in it. I don't really want to lie to them but i don't want to tell them i got extensions because a lot of people get annoyed...

What do you think the best thing to do would be?

Tell them you are not sure, or tell them you got an extention for personal reasons that you do not feel like explaining, if they get annoyed, it is their own fault.

Yes! Now that I've handed in my dissertation I'm feeling quite bored. Have a bit of an urge to start writing random papers.
