Feeling unworky again today. Think I'll focus on compiling a list of books to get for my other essays tomorrow, and then force myself to knuckle down on actual essay writing this afternoon.

I'm still worried about the amount of info I've got on these two hypotheses. I'm basically only using 2 people's work for them; one guy's written a book, but the other guy has only written one paper. Would really like other instances of the hypotheses being used, or at least being referred to, but these two were the only ones I could find in the reading list we got with our module handouts. :/

So far I have about 10 books I'm using for this essay, but I think when I do my book change-over on friday I'm also going to properly sit down in the stacks and ransack all the books on the relevant shelf - any quotes which look promising I'm just going to copy down, and then see if I can fit them in somewhere.

Spoke to the nurse-woman earlier and she wasn't as nice as the one who gave me the jabs before - when I said I'd have to wait 'til may to get them done 'cause I'm still at uni she started going on about how I should just get them done at uni; kept interrupting me as I tried to tell her I didn't want to get them done at uni, and repeated about 3 times that I should go to the uni Doctor's, and how it's identical.

Okay, I'm sure the jabs would be identical, but the uni Doctors are horrible people who withhold test results if you question their judgement, and who make the jabs as expensive as possible.

In the end I just said to her, 'I really don't like the uni Doctors and I wanted to get all my jabs done at home', and she just subsided and said 'well okay, but you need to make an appointment nearer the time, and it'll take about 4 days or so to get the jabs in stock'. How hard was that?!

I've just tried to book my train tickets to York, for my essay deadline, but for some reason it decided to withhold the tickets as I was about to pay for them. Said they were no longer available. :s

That's not too bad I guess, 'cause I'm still not sure how long I can afford to be back for. I was going to come up for a week, so I could go out with uni friends once all our work's over, but realised I'd also have to get food in the house, and unless I wanted to be bored out of my brain I'd also have to bring some books or my laptop back with me 'cause by then all my belongings will be back home (and seems a waste of energy to bring all that stuff with me). So instead I'm thinking of coming up 2 days before our deadline or something - the first day I'd arrive late afternoon, and then I could coax my friends into doing something the next day; providing they aren't all having a last minute panic. And if they were then I could try to do something in the morning of our deadline - the essay's aren't due in 'til 4pm, so I was thinking I could drag them out for lunch, and then I could catch a train home after handing my work in.

Of course the only problem with all of that is that I'll be money-less by that point, having quit my job in May, and most of my plans to meet people seem to involve going out for food. So yeah, I'm still unsure how long I can afford to stay in York for.

Ugh, really don't want to do more work...

I'm just onto page 10, it's taken me 2 hours to get through page 9, and that was in more order than this one. :(

Absolutely have to finish this essay tonight though, so I'm determined not to go to bed 'til it's done.

Think I'm going to do my health, medicine and media essay next - it's the best out of the two I've got left, so I'm hoping it won't take as long, and I'll be able to catch some time up on it. Also need to start my dissertation reading; from sound of it everyone's on the ball with theirs & I still don't know if I can do this topic...still don't have my question properly formulated! :/

So end of next week I need to have got my dissertation question sorted, so I think I'll spend my evenings mornings doing reading for it, and then on friday I can form the essay and the structure. And I also want to have H,M&M essay done, and Humans & Other Animals at least started on. *wilts*

I'm really glad Steph's the only other housemate home right now though - she's got even more work on than me & she's properly slogging away every day, which makes nice & distraction-less for us both.

Really, really, can't wait for work at the weekend - it's going to be knackering, but I can't wait for a break from all this essaying & a chance to get out the house!

I'm going to the lib tomorrow to do my book swap over, and it'll be interesting to see how jelly-esque my legs are!

Anyway, more essaying now.
