Now I understand dissertation proposal….a bit late

From re-reading example proposals this morning, I finally realised what it is. Proposals is an issue or an investigation that you feel needs to be done. It has its literature review, this one bugged me the most, I didn’t understand why my supervisor wanted me to get new information. Now I realised why, the literature review is a review of what other people are saying in the industry about a certain topic, you will pick up ideas of what to write from them and base your study on that.

Spending time at uni

It has been quite a while since I’ve spent sometime at uni, well mostly at the SU bar. The bar has sort of changed, it has new lighting which makes it all new and bright. I quite like it, but some say the new coat of paint won’t do much to improve the bar. Well I just think they are not looking on the bright side of things.

Aims, Needs, Want, Plan…focusing it

Continuing from a post I did yesterday about where I want to be and focusing my objective on my relationship and social life. While browing my RSS feeds I found this interesting article on self-development & goals. It is a 5 part entry and since writing this entry there have been only 3 of 5 entries available to the public. Combining that article and a few previous readings I’ve done I will go through some steps to achieve my goal and see results.

The Lightning Thief

Just listened to an audiobook (unabridged) of the first of the series of Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. Its quite a good book, it is similar and has nearly the same feel as Harry Potter. But it’s different.

This books gives you the mystery of learning with the main character. Percy, a demi-god. Its probably what sold the Jason Bourne books and the Harry Potter book. (Side note, Robert Ludlum’s Bourne Identity!, it’s very different from the movies and it’s much better too!)

Anywho…

Sleep

While revising I stumbled on this amazing stop motion video by Oren Lavie.

Today I have done quite a bit of revision. I woke up early (7:30am) which was really easy as I had a good night sleep. During the day I was able to complete most of my revision for one of the modules I am doing at Uni (construction and the Environment). Continue reading “Sleep”

Exam time

I’ve noticed that at around exam time I am more prone to script or programme something. I am more creative.

I was able to complete a story book and finish off an update for my paid script that I have been selling for nearly 6 months now. I also started to venture in starting to screencast how-to videos for a software that I use frequently. I feel so distracted by these that I feel like that I have to finish them off to continue.

Anywho I’ve done quite a bit of revision for the past 3 days :(. I know its bad starting very late like always for an exam which is due on Thursday.

I am planning on Tackling three more chapters for my exam on Thursday as well as 1 chapter for my exam next Monday. It feels that I haven’t done a lot of note taking recently, but just reading the lecture notes and answering questions. Continue reading “Exam time”
