Whinges

For those times in life when you need to have a serious talk.

Whinges

Postby porcupineportent » Wed Nov 04, 2009 4:20 am

For the Thing frustrating enough to not qualify as a Happy Thing, but not melancholy enough to be a Depressing Thing.

Start: NaNoWriMo now, but I've two term papers (~ 3,000 words total) and a presentation due this month, too. NaNo is 50,000 words, which comes out to about 3,000 words a day. I am writing the equivalent of both term papers every day.
Why do I do this to myself.

Because you love it :D
(Am I right in thinking you're an English student?)

Anyways, I just wanted to say I approve the creation of this thread. I always feel bad moaning about something that's basically unimportant in the other thread, then seeing it next to someone else's actual serious troubles.

LULZ I BE A BIOSCI MAJURRR. :(
But that's only because English (yes I do love it) doesn't offer many lucrative careers and if I weren't in biosci I would be an English major.

And your approval makes me happy!

What are you talking about? Novel writing is totally lucrative! Just look at J.K. Rowling!

Just so long as you don't look at the thousands of other writers out there with unpublished books you should be okay.

Whinge: JK Rowling

Then... who is the English student?

I think perhaps I was confused by that whole thing where you do subjects that aren't your major at uni. We don't really do that here.

Whinge: Freakishly tired tonight. I should be asleep but having got out of bed for my phone call I don't want to move right now to go back :?

Can't get used to DST as yet. Constantly waking up at 4 in the morning. At least now I have time for breakfast.

People who cannot spell on the internet. Seriously guys. I'm fourteen. If I can capitalize and add a fullstop during when chatting, so can you. I am this far away from writing an angry blog about this. THIS. FAR. AN ANGRY BLOG. THAT IS NOT A LARGE DISTANCE PEOPLE.
But I doubt it.
