Death via Coursework

This is just an "I'm Dead" post.

I seem to have way more work than most people due for the end of the term. The people in clusters like mine basically just have the Exploiters page and some random stuff.

My list at present:

Chemistry - do, check, understand sheet. 24/11 (Self-assigned)
Plant - One Week Plant Food Diary, what parts of plants involved? 23/11 (at least, that's when my one week ends, then I have to write up the information)
Enviro - Lily House Assessment / Heritage landscape restoration report 24/11
Plant - Check Blackboard for week 7 notes and cocoa notes. Email. (They're not up, wtf.)
Exploiters - Paper 1500-2000 word essay due @ 5 12/12
Chemistry - test yourself quizzes. Carbon compounds, counting molecules, alkenes alkanes and polar molecules. 8/12, given that's the exam and that's when I need to understand everything by.
Plant - Report on adaptations for either climbing or defence as seen in the Harris Garden. Organs involved? 8/12
Plant - Illustrated writeup of practical for week 4, floral structures. 8/12
Plant - Same for week 7, cocoa. 8/12
Plant - Same for week 8, apples. 8/12
Plant - Same for week 9, brassica crops. 12/12
Chemsitry - Open book test revision. 8/12
Enviro - Ecological sampling of invertebrates report. 5/12
Enviro - Group renewable energy presentation. 11/12
Enviro - Sutton Coutenay Landfill Site. 13/1 (beyond end of first term)
Exploiters - Extra reading and assessment for week 6 (self-assigned)
Exploiters - Extra reading and assessment for week 7 (self-assigned)
Living Cell - all notes and additional reading (self assigned)

Yes. I pretty much feel like I'm dying. By tomorrow at 4 I get to cross off the Heritage Landscape Restoration report, but until then I have to actually write it.

Also the StudentsOnly website won't verify that I'm a frakkin' student, which is really annoying, and I spent more than a half an hour of paper time trying to get proper documents only to find they were always missing one of the three major things: my (proper) name, the University name, or the date of current semester. I don't think they'll even take Blackboard as a gradesheet so it's so annoying. I can't find the chat feature to ask them questions. I don't want to have to go get documentation from student services and have to snail-mail it, or scan it or anything. Gehhhh.

On the plus side of life I have no practical this week for Exploiters so hopefully I can get my hands on Jack and Arun to discuss actually working on our biofuels presentation. And if I get pinned for group leader I am not going to be a happy camper.

Geh. The lot of this. Iz killed in the face.

Why can't I be Lora, with just one Exploiters paper to write and a chemistry exam to study for? Plant and Enviro, why must you smite me so? Pouts. I am soSoSO dead.

So this is also my "You probz won't see me much" given you already haven't really and I need to not be on the Internet save Blackboard and talking with my group mates. Because, again, DEAD.
