Weekend Madness 5-7-2010 Through 5-9-2010


The 'weekend madness' threads are for anyone who has a crazy busy weekend planned...

  to post their plans,


make progress updates,

celebrate success

and cheer each other on like mad.


We use loads of graphics and generally make it a party atmosphere.


It REALLY works. 

Are you ready, people? LET'S GO!

Keep going you can do it.


Yay! Meeting went well

Thanks for your encouragement. I got through today's meeting with other students without looking like a total slacker or an idiot. So now I can relax a bit, only a bit mind you, and work steadliy on my studies all week rather than work like a banshee today. They will be more fun if I am a steady worker. I almost dropped the ball but caught up with the vital tasks just in time.

So I am going to take the  rest of the afternoon off and enjoy some good research, dibbling about on the net and generally chilling. Back to the procrastination battle tomorrow.

Good luck with your tasks today. I'll check in later to cheer you on.
