Last Thursday I went to London with a friend for a tourist’s day out, to break up the monotony of summer jobs and my attempting to work out how to use the 3 chemical databases for third year: Web of Science, Scopus & Reaxys, using the “self-taught exercises”. As I’ve probably said before, beyond word […]

Summer Holiday’s Begin

I am officially home, in Reading, for the summer after an amazing second year of University, and quite an ordeal getting home on Thursday due to the crazy thunderstorm that decided to open up over my flat as my mum and I desperately tried to get everything into the car to deliver to my new […]
