Listless Labs

…well, another long day.

Since Tuesday's head-bashing lab session, we really had to get down to it and write up our lab report properly, duff results or no. So this took out all of Wednesday – and I'm not kidding. The day went something like:

9 – drop into MC
10 – 1 Doing lab work
1 – 1:30 Lunch
1:30 – 4:30 Doing lab work
5: 7:30 Brass Band
8–9:30 doing lab work
10pm – Home

Ah well, at least lunch was good (except at South Central I somehow managed to receive a bagette with prawn filling instead of lemon chicken. It's a tough life having an accent like mine.)

Today was a bit better, since I actually got some revision done – complete with the comedy moment in the library when someone answered their phone in the silent study area and proceeded to hold a conversation at normal speaking volume.
Ok that doesn't sound exciting, but with the exams coming round I get very stressed if I don't manage to revise, such as happened on Wednesday. More lab work ensued as well, but we've been rescued this evening by an epiphany on Oli's part – he has fixed a bug in our calculations that were throwing our simulated results off! Now they more or less agree with our experiment. Hurrah! Just as well, since it's due in tomorrow…

As an experiment (and no, this isn't interesting either – I can't seem to think of anything interesting to say in my blog at the moment) I bought some decaf tea today for the first time. This is part of my drive to consume less caffeine on the basis that it's probably not doing me any good at all. My fondness for hot drinks though is likely to be permanent hence the decaf experiment. Lets see how it goes…

    You should have told them where to get off. I don't consider myself to be the aggressive, confrontational type but if someone had done that in the silent study area while I'd been there, I would have politely suggested that they continue their conversation elsewhere if they didn't wish to find their mobile phone lodged in their throat. Just a thought.
