    Stuff like cell culturing, microbial culturing, statistics (hate hate HATE), metabolic processes, understand drug metabolism. Lab techniques such as: find drug concentrations in the body, DNA electrophoresis, Cell and culture staining, protein assays ect.

    All the stuff that sounds like it'll be fun is actually just menial and boring...to me anyway.

    Sounds Interesting in all honesty, any reason why youve lost interest, you sure its not because of the workload? People tend to hate something they feel they HAVE to do!

    Best: napping in the afternoon

    Worst: the fact you can never get away from the feeling you need to work or do more. So even when you're not working or it's the weekend you have this feeling of guilt hanging over all the time and there is no real and true freedom from pressure.

    £4 × 5 days (presuming said person rustles up something for themselves over the weekend) is a hefty spend out of a student income. If you bought a selection of packed lunch products from a mainstream supermarket (not even Aldi, Lidl or B&M stores) for £20 they would likely see you through the whole month.

    You're assuming (1) they'd be at uni every day and (2) every time they'd be at uni it'd require them to eat lunch there.

    And what food could you buy for £20 which would last an entire month? Dairylea Lunchables?
