And so it begins
Well this is hardly just the start of my year away from the university working, but the first i've seen of this WB malarky.
6 months of no university is a long time and although the money is good, the university lifestyle is suddenly put into perspective when compared to the 36.5 hour 9-5 working week that i have at the moment. (And the worrying thing about it is, apparently this isn't it, I might actualy have to do this for some years to come after uni!).
This isn't gonna be a guide to a sandwich year, or for that matter anything useful at all i imagine. More a pouring out of my random thoughts and experiences during my time out. If anyone actually gains any useful info from it then I am not to be held responsible!
Oh and for all that are interested, i'm at Astrazeneca for my 12 month placement, living in lovely Macclesfield, Nr. Manchester, where it always seems to rain and the local amusements are a little to be desired.
Is all good though, and will update on my take on how has all been going and the general vibe from the placement students at a later date. For now just enjoy the pictures of drunk chemistry/ biology (see what being away from uni has made me associate myself with!) people and feel lucky to be in a world where 9 o'clock starts are "optional" and no-one minds if you are blantantly pissed all day!
