Ty bro. It's a relief knowing that I've got something to do next year. Now I have to worry about getting some scholarships and funding.

Congrats!

Corazon de Leon wrote:Cheers dude. I need to have an area of study all sorted out by the end of this month and have funding and whatnot applied for by March 31st. Not looking forward to sorting all that out but the end result will be killer, hopefully. I want to look at the effect of propaganda on Western Europe during the Cold War, specifically US video propaganda. It's not exactly life changing stuff, but I'm sure it will help someone...somewhere. :lol:

I dunno about life-changing, but it sounds interesting to me! Research doctorates in science work a little differently: you sign up with a lab group in an area you're interested in rather than picking a topic outright, then your professor and supervisor play pretty significant roles in helping decide what specifically you're giong to investigate. I actually spent my first nine months working on some reactions with cyclotrisilenes that didn't go anywhere before moving on to digermene, which is why my PhD ended up taking four years instead of three :/

Yeah... mine's covered in chemical stains and quite a few burn marks. (It's non-flammable of course, but the number of times I've dropped molten glass on it while making reaction tubes...)

Mine is still white for the most part, except for a fair few chemical stains. You're not a proper scientist if your lab coat is totally clean.

My task this weekend is to learn about the immune system for an upcoming test.

Tea toast and study as soon as I can get finished at work.

I started my applications for PhD funding today. Got all of the administrative stuff now but I need to write a 4,000 character description of my plans. I hate doing stuff like this. :lol:

Got a low 2:1 on the autumn semester(circa 62%), quite happy with that as it's the first semester that'll count towards my final grade, not a bad way to start! Though I did under-perform a bit in exams, which was disappointing but I made it up in essay marks.

Just gotta get the social side back on track, may join a new society this week :)

EDIT: Bahaha, just saw the video...speaking as someone from Cardiff uni, it's hard to watch :fp:

Semester 1 grades all in now. Firsts in two modules, 2.1's in two modules. Will take that happily even though doesn't go towards final grade as is first year. Anyone on here do sports science? Am changing from Sports coaching & development across to that as it allows the physiology and biomech strands.
