To grow as a person, we must question the way we do things, we must question the things other people ask of us and we must live outside of the comfort zone. We must make mistakes and learn from them, in order to be able to understand how to improve the way we do things, just like in research.
I thought it would be appropriate now that I have finished my masters degree and got my results to reflect back on the overall degree. So, my degree was a 4 year integrated masters course and it was pretty intensive. The first year I had no idea what to expect and was majorly caught up… Continue reading Reflecting on my MChem degree
We finally got our results- YAY! I’m pleased to announce that I am now the holder of a 2:1 (Second class upper honors) Masters in Chemistry with a year in industry! I was very worried and as you can imagine, extremely stressed on the day of results. This was made worse by the fact that… Continue reading Degree results and the start of graduate life!

This final thing gave extremely unexpected results and has completely turned my project upside down. *Cries* My project is… Continue reading Chemistry- don’t underestimate the data…
