Elvis has left the building!

Finished! Nine months slog all came to a slight anti-clomax at 10:19 this morning when I submitted the final assignment on this year's course. I even had 101 minutes to spare! Worked late last night and early this morning trying to shoehorn in all the stuff that had suddenly seemed important and stripping out the padding and gumph and then waved it a sad farewell. Normal blogging might have a better chance of happening now that this is out of the way.

12 careful considerations:

What's with these 12 noon deadlines which seem to be appearing? - I don't like them. Midnight is a more suitable hour.

101 minutes is a lot of spare time. :-)

Yay! Another one bites the dust :-)

Kat - noon deadlines are good: they mean that if the server packs up half an hour before the deadline, somebody will be around to go & prod the hamsters!

Midnight cut-off was fun on T171. I didn't know it was midday now. Miss Goody here always submits early ;-)

kat said...

Morning-loves-it - You are right. Midnight cut-offs were fun. They've taken it all away. :-)

Bluefluff - In my experience, if the server packs up in the morning they can't get it fixed before the noon deadline anyway. I hear what you are saying and know 12 noon generally seems more sensible (If someone is around they can extend the deadline), but I work best in the evening. I bet there is a heavier load on the server near 12 noon cut-offs than midnight - Many people, including Miss Goody Two-shoes Morning-loves-it, will submit early and get off to bed. :-)

Yes - that's me Kat. I work best early in the day and alone.

Morty had a long summer holiday break and he thumps his keyboard as he types and our computers share the attic space. I don't know how I did two TMAs with him thumping away next to me.

Now he's back at school I have quiet up here apart from the seagulls and yesterday I started work on my ECA at eight in the morning and didn't stop until four in the afternoon and it was luverly.

Morning-loves-it - I prefer working from 8 in the evening until 4 in the morning. :-)

kat - looks like you and morning could provide 24 hour cover :0)

I'm a late night/early morning bod too - never got the hang of this "having it done in plenty of time" stuff :-)

Because A215 is writing from the head and heart we were supposed to start writing as soon as we opened our eyes in the morning as that's when thoughts come tumbling out.

I did that but had to put my lippie on first as I can't think without it.

kat said...

Well, I'd be far too predictable for that! I have the same thoughts every morning.
What day is it?
What time is it?
Where am I supposed to be today?
Am I late?
Where's me watch and me glasses?

What's a clomax? ;-)

Nogbad said...

trt - forgot to mention that a clomax is loke a climax but much lower.
