I'm here and there. To be honest I'm actually working very hard on the final year of my degree, but as I've wisely split my modules up between the two semesters, I'll have some free time here and there to share the odd bit of writing. Obviously I will make sure that comments are disabled so that 'haters' will be unable to degrade my work. When you're constantly writing code and interpreting data for scientific, academic reports, it takes a lot out of you - mentally draining, really. So focusing my mind on other stuff helps, certainly that which I have written for nearly eight years now. If you enjoy my work, that's great - many of you have been staunch supporters and friends of mine for many years now, and I always value your input and critique.
When you get to the final year of your degree, you have a lot of work to do, but quite a bit of free time. They expect you to use that time to read up and study, but honestly, I could write an entire assignment in a day or two and still get a 2:1 or a 1st. University isn't that challenging. Sure, my IS (Independent Study)/Dissertation will prove difficult, as I'm torn on what to include in the methodology and discussion. And don't even get me started on the literature review/search. For what I'm basing my research project on, and I had to change it twice due to the Ethics Board believing the data would be too open-ended and, therefore, unreliable, there is very little past research to draw inspiration from.
Some of my modules are also extremely challenging, and I'm trailing a module from last year as I abandoned one of them. Ironically, I'll be doing a Level 5 module, so that won't be too troublesome - hopefully the second-year students aren't annoying like I was for the vast majority of my second year. That being said, I'm making a lot of head-way now. I've had two interviews at top Universities, one of which is in Scotland, for potential MSc courses after I graduate. So that should commence sometime next year, if I'm accepted. So everything is going pretty well. I just need to nail this dissertation and get through my Level 6 modules. Graduating from second year was a little tougher than I expected, and it was draining, emotionally, to get through it. I won't be making the same mistakes this year.
