IR Students officially fucked

JJ is back with some random updates on this thing called he likes to call his life.

Benji (whose blog seems to be deserted) is was heading back to the airport as we blog.
(UPDATE 23/3:) An hour after I posted this, I got a call from the B-Man. Yes, the six Swiss kids had managed to miss their flight, and needed a place to crash for the night. No problem, I said, I was just about to start doing some actual work. Please come and distract me (no irony here!). They came, cooked, watched my favourite movie and left early. EasyJet, by the way, wasn't able to offer them another flight to Basle until Friday, so instead they're flying to Geneva today and taking the train from there. Wer's nöd im Chopf hät...
He and his five friends - one of whom is apparently none other than the mysterious 'A' on Tobistar.com; small world eh - joined me in doing what every good student should do after the last day of term: party. Yes, I'm officially on vacation now (hence the lack of posts recently). Of course, vacation means nothing more than having the freedom to come into the library a bit later. Why is that, you ask?

Well, the LSE on Friday published its Summer 2005 examination timetable. Holy shit. Turns out my exams will be almost a month earlier than I had expected. Which basically means two things:

a)I have 8 weeks to write a 10'000 word dissertation and prepare for four exams. Which really means I should start dealing with proper IP (International Politics) as opposed to the kind of I&P (intoxication and procrastination) I have been engaging in since last October.

b)Consequently: see post title. Or, if you're too lazy, I'll spell it out for you. I am F-U-C-K-E-D.

Haha. You still haven't started your dissertation yet? I take it you're 3rd year IR undergrad?
