As the title suggests, I am a blog virgin. Greetings!
Let me say that i find it largely ironic that i have chosen this point in time to construct my first entry – i now have a mere 8 days of revision betwen now and my first exam. In theory i should be stressing out and spending all my free time cramming weird and (un)interesting facts into my brain, yet here i sit, staring at my computer deciding how best to put off doing work. Phrase of the week is most definately "Meh – i'll do it later". Its a triple whammy really, i have exams AND assessed essays AND assessed presentations all due in the last 2 weeks of term, so again i ask myself 'why the hell arent you working?!'......answer: Meh – i'll do it later
Why has it taken me nearly 2 terms since first hearing of the blog to embrace it? Well, quite simply i'm lazy.
Lets step back a bit shall we? (a la hollywood flash back senario).......
My name is Chris and i study Chemistry at Warwick. My course is an MChem with Industrial Training, meaning that i spent my 3rd year working in industry. I came to Warwick in 2001 and have never looked back; actually, that not quite accurate, although i made some great new friends, i was a bit miffed to found out on my return to Warwick that my industrial placment wasn't as essetial to future career prospects as i thought back in year 2…ho-hum. I digress. It was nice to come back to Warwick and get into the student mood again, having left the friends and general social atmosphere (pretty much) where i left them.
I can't believe the university is still in its 'state the obvious' phase with Keleido-slop changing to Café Library/Library Café (which ever it is) – reminds of the 'Airport' and 'Airfare' to 'Bar' and 'Bar Food' some 2 years ago! Anyway, i dont think my opinions on universty-based eateries and their naming are relevant or necessary.
A little about me…..i have loads of work to do right now, i dont how i'm goning to complete it all, i have no idea how i'm going to achieve the grades i want and if this seems hard, how the hell am i going to cope with 3 years of PhD study?!....oh and i also play the guitar – and not even that well :o) All for now kids, TTFN
