Yeah, doing it part-time so I'm onto my third year of six. This module has been about business and management and it has been incredibly dry. I've managed to do well on it so far, but I feel like I'm just writing utter s**** at the moment. Got about 1500 words left to write and, given that I work, I've only really got tonight and tomorrow night left to do it <laugh>.
Jesus, good luck. I had similar once, a work deadline due the day before the essay was due and ended up going three days without sleep just to get everything done. The final night was hilarious, I woke up my girlfriend at about half past four in the morning with about a thousands words to go, looking like f***ing Jack Nicholson in the Shining, and saying "I don't know what words mean any more."

Edit - I'm also pretty sure I'd wasted the entire previous free week playing in the flash games tournament on here as well <laugh>.
<laugh>

Well it's due in tomorrow and I've taken a half day at work to give myself a chance. Worried about it all night so I've hardly slept. I might just go into work early so I can escape before lunch and spend about fourteen hours on this f***ing assignment <grim>.

<laugh> <neg> this is why I hate people saying essays shorter than 3k words are a piece of piss. You can get away with waffling when its longer but one unnecessary paragraph in a 1500 word essay and boom you just dropped 10% off your final mark. Makes writing one sentence take f***ing forever.

Glad I did a degree in engineering. Almost no papers, just design projects and mountains of maths

I'm just waffling now. I'm writing absolute nonsense and just hoping I hit lucky with it <laugh>. I reckon there's about another five hours of work left in this and then I can submit it and enjoy my summer.

The most frustrating thing is that I could easily write 10,000 words of utter bollocks on this forum over the period of a couple of days. I wish I could translate that into my academic work <grim>.

Is it safe to say you have written more words here complaining about having to write than you have written for your paper?

For starters, go f*** yourself! <fist>

I've actually written quite a bit tonight and I'm actually not too disgusted by the content of it <diva>

I intend to f*** myself quite thoroughly this evening, but I do believe your posting rate has increased dramatically since you started hardly working.

I mean working hard of course.

<laugh> I've done the bulk of it. I'm making good use of my 12 hour grace period so I should definitely get it done tonight.

This is where you find out that you can submit OU assignments up to 12hrs late and not be penalised for it <laugh>

OU wrote:If you are submitting your assignment online, you should ensure that you submit well before
midday (UK local time) on the cut-off date in case you experience technical problems.
However, there is a 12-hour grace period so any TMAs received before midnight on the cutoff
date will still be accepted.
I didn't actually realise that until two assignments ago. They don't advertise it because of people like me who immediately think "Nice, an extra day <diva>"

Jesus. When I think over the number of times (ie every assignment) I've been rushing at 11am in a desperate stupor of exhaustion... <neg>

Do you pay in bulk for each module btw? Do you know if its easy to switch to paying monthly or something instead? Not easy to fork out a bulk of several thousand on this every year so I've ended up leaving a pretty long interval between two of my years. It's looking like I'll finish within a 9 year period in the end <erk>.
