    I remembered over the weekend, thought 'huh, should definitely do that' and then promptly forgot...

    Ach. Formal soon. Hope it's not still raining.

    Still got two this week, and then a tutor's promise that "Next week, we will be busy"

    Argh.

    Hehe... radicals and reactive intermediates for O1 on Friday, reaction dynamics next Wednesday, vib spec for I1 next Thursday and peptides for O2 at some point next week. Thankfully, vib spec is awesomely easy

    Do you remember when you got the results from A+H?

    It took about 3-4 weeks, I think.

    Also, I take back the comment about vib spec being easy. Trying to work out the vibrations of an octahedral complex is nasty.

    Yeah, the computer one's about a 30-40 minute sign off. We surprised him by doing it in about 2nd week of Michaelmas.

    I guess you've only got one 3rd year stint to do (assuming you did a supp?) - I suppose inorganic's probably the easiest choice.
    He was absolutely amazed when I got it signed off this morning. Apparently im the first 2nd year ever to get it signed off.

    I didn't.....in the end I was quite in the right fram of mind to go see what had been described numerous times (by him) as a "ferret snuff movie" :p:

    And that's really annoying......I just started trying to learn the gastric acid secretion stuff. Curses. 8.5 days.....how much work/of what sort have you done for it?

    I keep on forgetting random bits of biology I should really know for pharma which is one of the main problems....that and the fact that the lectures don't quite cover everything and I currently have the attention span of a small flea with ADHD on cocaine.
    What are you going to do with yourself for the next week? Have.........fun?!?!?!?!

    Might do my vac work while keeping up a little revision

    And carry on praying the paper is as easy as it normally is.

    From what I hear, as of next year, they're planning on ramping up the difficulty and the quantity for Ar/Het, because the number of distinctions is too high :rolleyes:
