* gasp * am coming up for air while drowning in floods of thesis papers, not to mention phone calls from annoying students who demand, “Haven’t you finished yet? I’m in a hurry!” This makes me very cross, as they have had 10 months to do this, and they gave me their 40 pages on Friday or even Saturday. The “final” deadline is tomorrow at 6 p.m. The university has already moved it once. Last year they moved it a total of 10 days back; we’ll see how they do this year. Me, I’m sooo….. tired!
