September 21, 2006
But it’s only Thursday, I hear you say. Yep – but now I only work four days a week, my weekend starts now. In fact, since the network’s shutting down at 5 p.m. it’s about to start 2 hours early. Saturday is a research colloquium for all the research degree students in education – the ones that started in 2005 that is. I’m not sure how many are going to turn up though, one of the problems with these self-help set-ups is that without the extrinsic motivation of some lecturer telling us we have to do it, everyone backs out, even if it’s actually quite useful. I’ll still go, even though I don;t have too much to say (since I haven’t done anything since the last colloquium).
Although I;m still not sure I’m still on the degree. Today I discovered an email account the graduate office set up for me without telling me, and they;ve been sending emails to that for the last five months.One of which was a continuation form I should have sent in by the 17th June. :S I’ve filled the form in, and hopefully they’ll overlook the missed deadline, since there’s not really any way I could have predicted the existence of my hidden account.
What’s bizarre is that when I discovered this account, even though neither me nor my department knew about it, or have used it, half of the forty or so emails in it were spam. How did that happen??
Anyway, better finish before everything goes away for the evening.
