Deadline

April 26, 2006 in Cheese-offs

I wonder if it is a Limkokwing culture to be completely insensitive to the concept of deadline.

Are the students just plain lazy or are they really that ignorant about time?

Yes offence! But I think the lecturers have really spoilt the students a little too much.

See. We have so many assignments/reports/commentaries/campaigns/projects/essays to do. That’s why I sometimes block people on MSN (because some morons don’t understand what busy sign means) and even sacrifice my movie dates just to finish my work.

But I DO finish them ON TIME, be it last minute. Then Mozzie and I will be happily carrying our final work to class for submission.

We pass up our work to the lecturer. And then.

He/she will turn around and snub,

“Oh. Submission is next week.”

Like, huhness?!?!?

Then Mozzie and I ask why, because we thought we’re supposed to hand it in today!

“Oh. Because a lot of students complained that they cannot finish their work on time. So deadline is extended to next week. By the way, if you want to hand it in today you can do so.”

Did he say *complained* ?!?!?!?

Double You Tea Eff .
Mozzie and I exclaim in sync.

So on every freaking submission day, Mozzie and I will look like the only fools who actually bring their work to college while others will be so conveniently empty handed having a mass plea for a deadline extension which they are so sure will be tacitly accepted.

Look, my time management isn’t brilliant. But I manage to set aside time to do my assignments (now you know why I always eggnog you on MSN), do a bit of socializing (though mostly online), and blog like mad (to keep you entertained). Even so, I still have a lil extra time to churn my brain over something silly such as pondering exactly how much cheese consumption should I increase to reach my targeted cheesiness, or do some altercheesego debate about why Chris got into bottom three in American Idol last week.

We all have 24 hours. God doesn’t give Drew Barry more or Mandy more.

Screw journalism students who can’t differentiate dateline and deadline.

So TELL ME!

Why can you not finish your work on time while Mozzie and I have no problem doing that?!?!?

Are we like smarter than you??

Cheesus Crust.

Bah. Don’t want to talk bout that already. Change of topic.

Let’s see. Today we learnt how to do newsletter in PR class. And the lecturer showed us some examples.

Check this out.

This is a sample of some Health Organization’s newsletter.

Read the caption.

And the text body.

20 people cheesed “Deadline”

  1. Goodness gracheese… if that newsletter is supposed to show you how to do a newsletter.. please.. sack your leccie and hire me for the remainder of the semester!! i work cheap cheap..ekeke..and will do a better job!!

    about the assignment deadlines. cheesingly typical ne? you and mozzie can ask for extension but get blasted for doing so.. other ppl ask and they get it -_-

  2. lazy ppl gotta work hard now to completed their assignment….now U and Mozzino have free time to do your other stuff…

    work first, play later…that is the right thing Princess and Mozzie did, coz as U play first, work later like the lazy ppl…then there will not be not much fun to enjoy after all….let them rush for their assignment, while princess and mozzie can relax a bit. =)

  3. Hahaha nice entry and so very true too. Apparently, that doesn’t only happen in your faculty but mine as well. I know how you feel cause I had my own fair share of experience to vent.

    And with that additional week, just imagine how much we could have done on improvising the existing work of ours, no? But then again, once you’re done with the work, like no mood to continue working on it liao.

    Or at least that’s how I felt le whenever lecturers decided to extend the deadline given. So demotivating to see such things happening :(

  4. Porkie: Siaoness. People dying to work in UK can. -__- Why not we swtich job. LOL.

    Funnycheese: Yesh work first, cheese later. Or Simultaneously. Wahaha.

    SLinky:Heh! I have classes with Design students too! Exactly right! Damn potong steam siah. I just hand up everything only and focus on new assignm… erm, new cheese! =P

  5. so, does cheese equate assignment or cheese equates everything? :P

  6. hey!

    yeah, i think its an LUCT culture..my classmates do tht a lot (i’m in fashion, final yr) and sometimes i’m guilty of doing it too.. but trying to not do tht anymore!

    heh cos i know what you mean, lol.. has happened on a few occassions to me too ;) cheers, cheesielicious :)

  7. i guess the lecturers at your school has no guts!! its very different here with my profs where 1 min late means your assignment is NOT valid at all…
    however, some of my profs do extend datelines.. but those handing in late will have to take a deductions to the final score…

  8. Because we are in Malaysia where almost everyone is never on time?

    *shrugs*

  9. Mensiasuikan the spunk master only – mista lim cock wank.

    put aside ur completed assignments & chill!

  10. ahh.. i miss college life.

    great attitude u have there. carry on and u’ll achieve greatness.

    btw, those black pearls look cool.

  11. ermmm….Long live time extension!!! Deadline is a party pooper. But then i never get to worry about deadline so to me deadline is just a state of mind. wukakakakka..

    X

  12. hahaha! They have no dictionary to check the words! LOL! Or their microsoft words is old version? Can’t be right…

  13. Hmm, an LUCT student..right.

    Anyway, it’s weird nowadays on how lecturers so easily extend deadlines. Back then, we would cheer like hell has broken loose if there was an extension.

    Just keep up the discipline of meeting deadlines with great work and you’ll get better remarks in the lecturers books. :)

    Cheers.

  14. OH MY GOODNESS ME! How can they even publish something like that? Such a disgrace!

  15. extension?
    what extension?
    over here in um law fac, no extension, the only thing is if you pass up late, marks will be deducted. end of story.

    well, my sympathies and my compliments too, takes a lot to get things done on time esp if you’re the last minute type…

  16. is that “find the wrong spelling and correct it”(改正错字) exercise like what we have done at primary school? -_-lll

    Never tot that local college is that lousy….

  17. well in UTM,it has to depend on lecturer’s mood,for those late, either deduct the marks or reject and get a zero…

  18. lol msia english standard sux …..

  19. I wish my lecturers were more like LKW ones.
    btw, I do think u r smarter then all of them.
    and i don’t think u want them to be as smart as u?

  20. Lol , Ish like that de lar :)

Leave me a cheese
