He sounded a bit out out about having to do 2 designs but said I'd have them by the end of the day. Gave him my (horrifically awkward) email address over the phone then later on worried he might have noted it down wrong so dropped him a message through his websites contact form (no email address on the site) so he had a copy of mines. Still no designs. So fed up but feel like I have nothing I can do about it all. Argh! Frustration central!

    My supervisor is not responding to my e-mails. I need to know if the university has the equipment I need. They will have, it's just that the labs are being renovated over summer (just when all us MSc students have our dissertation projects to be doing! There's already been a faff regarding mine because we have one tiny dry lab we can work in and mine... Isn't dry, so I technically can't do it there.) so I have no idea where any of the equipment is. I just need a bunch of test tubes, that's it (oh, and being told where the UV spectrometer is would be handy too). Sigh.

    People just instantly presuming I don't know what I'm talking about. Just because I dont always show an interest doesn't mean I don't know about it.

    Aaaaargghhhh!! I hate that!!

    My "what grinds my gears" today is STILL being told how and when to do this and that at work. "Fill up the coffee bowl" "Clean that tray" etc. etc. Just little things that I obviously don't HAVE to be told to do after 6 years of doing this every goddamn summer. Just shut up!

    People constantly commenting on other people and their eating habits (and other general things they might be doing). "Watch your fingers." (While eating), "You won't lose weight eating kebabs for lunch.", "Are you even typing anything or are you just tapping the keys?" Ugh, worry about yourself rather than commenting on everything other people do, you aren't perfect you know!

    Far too many no-shows at work this week. Really fed-up with rude, inconsiderate people.

    whoever designed the course option selection for Manchester university clearly has no concept of a good UI

    you'd think that, considering its the biggest university in the country dealing with thousands of students, it would have an easy to use website?
    Nope.

    On my course, for second year, you have two compulsory modules and four that are free choice, and at least three of these have to come from Sociology. I've chosen three Sociology modules, leaving me with one completely free choice in semester two. It can come from ANY second year semester 2 course that accepts students from outside it's discipline.

    But can I easily search for this? No. Excluding the search system where you register for courses, there are at least three other search options with varying degrees of filters and information.
    I understand keeping the course registration search separate from the other search options (for sake of speed) but why not have one designated space for course search, instead of having me chase down the information from different sources?

    ugh. I'm praying to all of the gods that theres an open English/History module in semester 2 next year but I'm not optimistic. Sigh.
    You sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve.

    The wishy-washy-ness of the majority of baby clothes :/ and how soooo much is pink for girls and blue for boys. Or white.

    I thought I'd look for a snowsuit this morning. Pink, blue, or white. White. Snowsuit. Why would you put your child in a WHITE SNOWsuit?!
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    I think I'm missing the point here but why wouldn't you put them in a white snowsuit? It's an outdoor coat it's not going to get food all over it and a tiny baby isn't going to splash through muddy puddles :s




    Have i gone mad? Im afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But i'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.
