Did I say a few weeks ago that it would do me some good to be working regular 9-5 hours in the lab? I must have been mistaken. I've not been out before 7pm yet this week, and I was in last weekend, and will be again this weekend. On Friday night I didn't get home until 10:30. It doesn't seem to be doing me much harm yet, but it is making me wonder if I really should be looking at putting another four years of my life into this. At the same time, when I'm working things out and the problems are being solved it's like the best job I've ever had. And this is without a particularly convivial lab group (nothing unpleasant or frosty, they just mostly don't speak very much English, and I'm working in the spectrometer room on my own quite a lot)

In other news, OULES has a large and joyous new intake, and Rocksoc seem to be doing fantastically well, with lots of Wadham people, which makes me very happy. I did manage to find time to get to the Gloc and not-the-Zodiac-anymore and had a really good night dancing to skapunk and indie from a couple of years ago. Strangely, Imsoc seem to be dead silent... Kenners, Andrezj, what's going on? All the other Imsoc people I know have either left Oxford or long since stopped being involved.

I could blather more about my project, but it would probably only be understood by [livejournal.com profile] phenylfairy and [livejournal.com profile] neoanjou, so I shall refrain, and just remark that I think I cracked a big portion of it today. If people want to know the gory details, comment, and I'll stick them in a cut.

I'd like to know about your project!
Also, we should hang out soon. I miss you.

Yeah, bring on the project blathering! I'm glad you're having fun; it's great when you finally get to do some real science.

Since my working schedule when I did my part ii sounds suspiciously like yours there, I've set myself a limit this year of getting home by 7pm each night, unless it's a one off sort of thing. I'll let you know how that goes once I actually start working ;).

Well, I'm not involved in organising things anymore... but I'm pretty sure its all just carrying on as normal! We've had freshers drinks and an announce went out on Sunday, although I haven't actually read the details yet. I know Vertigo is still happening, but I'm not entirely sure when!

Glad to hear you're doing ok!

ack. that probably means i've dropped off announce, and the website looks out of date. any chance you could have a poke at the appropriate people for me and get them to stick lists@matthewjrobinson.co.uk on?
