Chemistry at Birmingham

Description
As an undergraduate chemistry student, I'm very used to people making the assumption that all I do for my degree is play around with Bunsen burners; however, this isn't quite the whole picture. Yes, in my first year at the University of Birmingham I spent countless hours in labs trying to synthesise a pure compound, or determine the density of a gaseous sample, but there's much more to the chemistry course.

What I got up to this summer

Description

What I got up to this summer

Description
As summers go the last one was pretty good, although I'm sure we will all agree that the preceding period of exams is not a difficult act to follow. It was a chance to relax, catch up with friends, but also to earn some money and gain experience to put on my CV.

This quite interesting summer started very well! Paris is quite the place (I actually went back for 5 days two weeks ago!) and I would recommend it to everyone. Oh, and please, pretty please, buy bread and other, bread-related stuff every morning! So, so good! Not just tasty; delicious!
