First Year Exams!

Just a quick moan.

I hate the fact that I (and all the other 1st year chemists) have one of the last 1st year exams. All of my housemates have finished, and I am trying to revise in a party atmosphere. It isn't good!

I know there are lots of people in other years who haven't finished, and some poor 1st year engineers (or is it physicists?) who finish the day after me, but in my house I am just getting irritated.

Anyway, hopefully I won't do too badly, and might even get some sleep (if my housemates are feeling nice!).

Good luck to all of you with exams left! And wish me luck for Friday!

2 Down…

Just finished my Organic paper.

Wasn't awful, but could have gone better.

I still did OK, but will see what happens when the results come out.

Only my last one to go, but that's 2 weeks away!

At least it gives us all time to revise better for it!

See you all at Boogie Nights tomorrow!

1 Down…

I have just got back from my first exam (inorganic), and it wasn't too bad.

I have realised, though, that I hate it when 50% of the marks are for a question with "Discuss" in the title!


Roll on Friday and Organic!

Lab Time

Why do i always end up being the last person to leave the lab?

My lab partner and i always seem to be a long way behind people, but i have no idea why! I do realise that our particular bench does get a good explination of what we are about to do at the start, whereas others just rely on the pre-lab talk, but the rest of our bench still finish ahead of us.

it's slightly annoying!

If i knew we were being ridiculously slow at something, then i could understand, but we are working as fast as we can.

it's SO unfair!

hiya all,

i have only just realised that the pre-lab talk on friday morning has moved from where it has been since term started.

It is not in L4. It is in room(s) B213/4.

AND: it is at 11am, not 10am!

i know cos i checked the online timetable.

anyone know where that is?

tell people you realise do not blog, and wont find this.

Thanks all,

see u 2moro

Team Building, Anyone?

I went along to the Cryfield Sports Pavillion with some anticipation and the humourous comments of my flatmates.

Eventually we begin, but not before i've had time to show off my brusing on my foot, and get split up into our tutorial goups. I get Prof Tim Bugg, and we are off.

1st Task:
Lift a Bucket full of water up, pour the water into another bucket, and all without going within 3 metres of the bucket!

Eventually sorted it out, but too much communication and lack of understanding of the task (bloody long-winded instructions) made it more difficult.


2nd Task:
While Blindfolded, and after bring each given a number, arrange your group in number order in a line, and without talking!

This went much better. We sorted out communication on each others arms, we were prepared for large and decimal numbers, and even thought about being spread out.

The group decided that one person should control what was going on while we were blindfolded, and I was nominated. I whistled (no talking, but nothing said no whistling) to get the group to me, where i managed to line them up and then put them in their correct places. Bar one person. They would give her a negative number!!! The one eventuality we hadn't though of! (As well as pi and e and so on.) But everyone else was fine, and all was well.

Feeling much better, we were worried that this would go to our heads, and we would muck up the last task by being too cocky.

Task 3:
To get 4 golf balls from one line to another, through pipes, without anything touching the floor. At least 3 people had to support the pipes on "islands" of carpet pieces, and the people actually handling the golf balls had to wear blindfolds.

This went well, but by being so cautious we were beaten by the other team against us. Actually, there was no instructions to be first, so that was OK. We built the pipeline to the side to check it worked, then went out and completed the transfer.

So, we all got to know the people in our tutorial groups, and some fun was actually had! We're all looking forward to our tutor meetings 2moro, and are finally ready to start our course.
