    Title: Half Term
    Date: 2/4 (I think )

    It's college half term at the moment. Which means one thing - doing nothing!!!

    So, what have I been doing today? Absolutely nothing!

    That's all for now.

    Title: Brewery
    Date: 17/4

    I smell like a brewery - and so does our kitchen - when I got in from college, I pulled open a cupboard to fetch a tray and knocked a can of John Smith's (in a multi pack) which burst open and went everywhere It wasn't just the ringpull that flew off, the whole top of the can flew off!!!

    Anyway, back to college. So I've got a computing exam on the 22nd May - and we only started the module today. Oh, happy days!

    I'm off to Cardiff on a week Wednesday to visit the university - my college is charging £3 to take us there in a minibus - it's a bargain considering the severn bridge costs £5.10 for a car and the petrol will be quite dear!

    My top 6 list so far stands as:
    1. Oxford (if I'm lucky enough to get in, they offer an MBioChem (masters degree in biochemistry) course)
    2. Cambridge (if I'm lucky enough to get in, they do an MA in "Natural Sciences" - you specialise in the 3rd/4th years)
    3. Bath (don't really know much about this uni but they also offer a masters degree in biochemistry)
    4. Cardiff (don't do a masters degree in biochem )
    5. Southampton (same as Cardiff)
    6. Bristol (same as Southampton)

    Southampton is quite close to home so that would be a major advantage

    That list will probably completely change by September, when I make my application!!!

    So, what's been going on in my little world recently?

    Yesterday we had our MEP (member of the european parliament) visit college to talk about climate change (and sell the Green party policies!!) My Computing lecturer managed to get us all tickets! That was quite interesting but had to miss an hour of Computing (I have a Computing exam next month and have only just started learning this module!!)

    I also received my Chemistry "Open Book Paper" on Thursday - which has been keeping me very busy. It's like a test booklet but you get given 2 weeks to complete the task. No-one mention a catalytic converter to me any time in the near future!!!

    We switched to TalkTalk yesterday which went really smoothly. Had a few problems getting through to someone this morning to block premium rate numbers but the "offshore" call centres person apologised and said they were having some technical difficulties with the call centre.

    I'll have to get choosing!!!

    That's all for today

    One thing which you might find useful is THIS. You can put in your exam codes and it puts them all in an ordered list by date.

    Site is messing up a little at the moment though.

    5 exams? I had at least 8 last year, without re-sits! For this year it is as follows:

    n + 10, where n=5

    In January, I did one of each of these: Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Computing.

    I've done coursework for Biology, Chemistry, Computing

    Each subject has 3 modules in year one, therefore 4 (January) + 3 (C/W) + 5 (June) = 12

    Aah, 3 courseworks. That's why. We had an exam to go with the computing coursework in the first year!

    3rd June

    So, I'm sitting here revising for my next exam, it's called "How to earn the most recurring points on Rpoints" (oops, I got that wrong, it's actually Biology but by the lack of revision and the excess usage of Rpoints today, it feels like it should be called that!)

    It should also be called "The installation of Ubuntu Linux" as I've been doing that too. I was sitting at my computer yesterday and waited 4 minutes for Windows to load (it usually takes about 1min 30secs). My thought was stuff Windows. So I installed Linux and here I am, 30 minutes later with it working perfectly.

    Yesterday we decided to replace 3 fence panels in our garden. My arms have been aching since - not because it was difficult putting the panels in but we decided to "circumvent" the delivery charge. The shop we bought them from wanted to charge £20 to deliver the panels just 1 mile down the road, so the man in the shop said "why don't you borrow a shopping trolley?" So that's what we did! Pulled our fence panels 1 mile back to our house on a shopping trolley!!!! Not the easiest task considering there are three hills to pull the trolley up!

    I'm going to get onto the phone to Tesco tomorrow demanding they return my phone or credit me with the 500 points and compensation for my time. I sent in an phone for recycling at the end of February and still no points . I've emailed 3 times and received some stupid reply. I wrote a letter about 3 weeks ago but still haven't received a reply to that.

    On Friday night, one of my ebay auctions ended. It was for a London Marathon 2007 Water Bottle (anyone want to buy it off me ). I had a starting price of £3 plus £3 postage - no bids . Someone else's auction, that finished about an hour after mine, started at 99p plus £1.70 postage - ended at £6.50 plus £1,70 postage. The buyer ended up paying an extra £2.20 on my price for exactly the same product - it's just crazy!!

    I received this letter from college the other day, telling me that a place had been reserved for me on a Foundation Level Food Hygiene course. I'd never even booked this course!!!! I was thinking of doing it anyway, but would normally have to pay so this should be a good opportunity.

    I'm writing off for full time jobs in the summer too. I'm hoping to get something in a local lab - but I'll probably just end up working at Mr T's

    Anyway, back onto my Biology now - I'm struggling to learn the differences between Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase and Telophase in the Mitosis Cycle
