It takes a bit of time to get followers on a blog

Same here, some concepts are hard but overall it is fine. What are you hoping to do in the future?

Sound bud I've gotta leave home at 9:15 to get there at 11:20 so it's chilling I'll stay focused and give it my everything it's a weekend job so 16 hours over the weekend 3pm till 11pm shifts. I think I'll be working 6 days a week now so that's gonna be solid. But the money will be nice as I'll have over £500 a week and hopefully I can do well with my merchandise when it's launched

How are u today?

Sorry, I didn't reply to this, I must have missed it! I'm in year 12 but because of Coronavirus I don't have a predicted grade as of yet. I will be having mocks in September which will decide that. I don't have a favourite topic but I enjoy Organic Chemistry.

That is so cool! Good luck in your career. You will do great, I'm sure! :woo:

Oh fairs yeah covid fudged up a lot of ppl including me as I was meant to sit maths and accounting this summer. What are you aiming to get and good luck 🙂

I like organic chem too would you say there's more money in that?

Thanks so much and yeah hopefully I'll never be out of pocket and the experience will open up more options I just hope it doesn't affect my studies too much. Warehouse graft does take it out of you but you get used to it

I'm aiming for an A - hopefully I will get it!

I think there will definitely be more money in organic chem compared to physical and inorganic but do whatever you want. Money isn't everything.

If it is too much you can always cut down a few days or take weekends off. Is this just a summer job?

Nice one good luck pal yup true its what you enjoy most that matters the most I just want a decent income do you have any idea of what profession you want to get into?

I think it's temporary with the possibility of a permo position if I perform well

I'm not sure which profession I would like to enter. A Chemistry degree opens up so many doors, it's all very confusing!
