lokuro: It's the solar system, by ? (Default)
Finally, a Friday that feels like holiday.
The room is filled with golden sunlight, all the thoughts which are more complicated than a simple 'actio et reactio' are banned and the weekend trip to my parents is planned and sealed. (I've convinced them to re-watch the Spielberg "Tintin"-movie and on Sunday we'll go hiking to the Marienburg castle, chatting about the entropy and the 'latest' Wodehouse novels).
To put it short: Life's awesome.

Also, it was a hell of a week. An almost inhuman heat (I wanted a thunderstorm so badly but it never came), lots of scientific papers to read and comprehend, preparation for a bally tedious 40-minutes English presentation about some sigma-reactions I still don't fully understand and an oral examination to survive.

Especially the last one was putting my nerves on edge. It's about my favorite physical stuff (kinetics of reactions) but the examiner is a Humboldt-Prize winner, a world-known chemist and possibly my future chef (for I'd love to do my Ph.D. at the Mark-Planck-Institution... if they want me as well? ^^") So, I was nervous. Like, really nervous.
The day before I tried to relax, so I took my bicycle and went on riding into the forest covering the hills all around Goettingen (it's really picturesque round here). And I got lost. It was the first time ever that I got lost and the most embarrassing experience of the last few years. I started my trip at about 8 p.m. and when I finally did get home if was about 1 a.m. One good side-effect: I was indeed distracted from the exam-worries.

Also, I've got an 1.3 which is marvelous :)
1.3 is about the same as "A-", I guess. Just - you'll never get the A-mark if you have to deal with our profs. To quote one of my fellow students about some another exam: "I've answered each one of the damn questions he asked and still! He said, for an 1.0 my answers were lacking that certain something, that je ne sais quoi, if you know what I mean. I wonder, if he wanted me topless or something." Love you guys >D

Well, as for me I'm fine with my 1.3 :) More than just fine, actually. Temporary happiness for everyone? >:)

(it's not champagne - though, I would appreciate that one as well - it's dry white-wine with soda and some strawberry added.)

P.S.: Jet another quote from one of the OC-seminar presentations (yes, the one I'm still working on) from some other fellow student on the theme of herbicides:
"The task of a chemist is to kill. But we don't want to kill everything."
I think, I want a shirt with that one.


/Off to buy some ice-cream to make the party perfect.

Merry Christmas a là Sherlock, with a small touch of horror and black humor ;)

(Can't wait for the second season *_* Dominatrix Iren, creepy Moriarty behind bars, worried British Government and MI6, naked Sherlock in the slipping blanket of Doom, John punching his not-a-friend Sherlock in the face and much more to come!)

Despite the morbid picture I'm in high spirits ever since last Thursday, for it was the last lab-day this year!

Sure, there is a lot of homework planed for the winter holidays: 4 experiment protocols, an overview of the current articles in all kind of scientific Journals for our assistance professor (concerning one special reaction type I've first heard a week ago) and a Power Point presentation for my speech in January
(if you have something to say about "through-space spin-spin coupling" you may rise and give me a helping hand), but still - I feel quite light headed and free.
(and it has nothing to do with the champagne bottle on the table: It's not even opened yet.)

Being lazy is fun :) spending the whole days relaxing in bed with Jeeves & Wooster >3 Well, figuratively. The two of them are just dead lovely (especially Jeeves *_*). Yes, I fancy the series with Stephen Fry & Hugh Laurie rather keenly, it's really a shame they don't act together anymore ._."
A fan-vid to cheer up a bit? Jeeves - Gentleman´s Personal Penguin
(Stephen Fry is not as good as Oscar Wilde - despite playing him marvelously in 1997 -  but I do enjoy his writings quite well. The protagonist in "The Liar" is such a naughty boy and only a tiny little bit pathetic.)

And now for the bad news: I'm afraid, my apartment house is now known pretty well within the Göttingen police department. Some month ago a student gone missing (my neighbour) and now there is a dead body on the six' floor. The police says, it was definitely a murder, which's quite an uncomfortable idea. welt.de News quote (German). And I've always thought Göttingen were such a quite, small student city, where nothing happens. Oh my...

Er... I don't want my Christmas Entry to end on such a remark ._."
Therefore, smile, my dears, carry on and take good care of yourselves ♥
