first of all Del Amitri - 'Nothing ever happens' is a tune
labs as predicted when horribly wrong and now I am faced with the prospect of finishing the two lab reports by Monday – which is why it makes perfect sense that I am writing this :) Bit of a crazy week in general with my grandad going into intensive care. Yesterday he was transferred to high dependency so that is slightly less bad but it will be at least two weeks before anything much is known prognosis wise.
I heard a crazy rumour that something called reading week exists and occurs next week for those people not unfortunate enough to have thought science a good idea. As a first year I was much more aware of this idea, it seems to involve a lot of alcohol early in the week and panic in the latter part. Good luck to all those embarking on this adventure. As for our house, being composed of science types we shall work on, with chemistry labs starting along with other things such as enzymology and cell signalling. Also continuing with molecular biology in a series of lectures taken by one of the true dudes of the department 'Uncle Bob' Old. Cell signalling sees the return of John 'I come in pints' Davies, also a figure deserving of respect (there is a beer of the same name don't panic)
Much rambling later and the lab reports are still waiting to be done. Have a good one whatever you are up to next week.
