Halfway through!

2 papers down, 2 more to go! And an assignment which I've yet to start. Lol. Well, at least I can now get rid of these!

No, I didn't read them all (the horrors!)

Hang in there, you can do this, scoob! PERSEVERE!! Only a couple of weeks to go and that's it.

The end.

So please, please dear self, please do not screw anything up!! You know very well the next two are trained killers, so please buck up! Don't wanna be shot dead do ya? Ain't gonna be a pretty sight. So stop lazing about and only feeling the heat as the next paper draws closer and closer. Start working now!

On another note, it's been getting dark later and later. Below is a photo taken at 9pm two weeks ago. 9pm this week looks like 7pm in M'sia.

9pm, Sunderland

Hmm... I wonder what time the sun will set today...

Differential Agar Plates

Remember the colourful differential agar I mentioned in an earlier post? Wondered how they look like? Here are some pictures! :)

my work bench

Circle of colours

They have got really cute names too - Rose Bengal, Bromo Purple, Brilliant Green, Nile Blue, Basic Fuscin, Acid Fuscin, Crystal violet, and of course the normal one, YEPD Base. Of these, Bromo purple is the most fascinating as growth affects its colour.

My ultimate fav

Makes spending time in the lab more bearable don't you think? ;)
