I must admit that this has been both tedious to orchestrate and, well, amazingly fun.
Hopefully you’ve all found your way here from my previous post, which said something like this:
I purchased the domain before I set up this wordpress because I happen to be dating a web designer/network specialist/all other sorts of geekiness, and he thought it would be cool if I learned his business. So not only will that be my blog domain, it’ll also be where I experiment. Don’t be alarmed if weird things happen. I’ll try to keep the blog under control…mostly.
Ok, it said exactly that.
Now some things are different with WordPress.org. They didn’t have the Bueno theme, so I had to find a new one and munchify it. Also, I had to work out how to see site stats, and I couldn’t be bothered to make a whole new set of links for my blogroll.
So I cheated. I used a plugin that takes a folder from my Google Reader account and lists the blogs I’m following. I’ve also added a new page for it.
Lastly, if you want to contact me, I’ve updated ‘Munchkn.‘ with my email address!
Komondors are scary, scary dogs.
They look like mops.
Or Cousin It with dreadlocks.
I may love dogs, but I never want this one.
It would scare me.
Although, I suppose I could get it to do some cleaning…
This weekend I’ll be relaxing, catching up on TV shows, reading (for fun!) and properly hanging out with my best friend for the first time in
I also have two big projects lined up for this weekend:
- Write proper blog posts to explain my situation, as well as respond to thumble’s nomination (more on this later).
- Move this blog over to my experimental domain. An explanation about my domain will also hopefully be included in this weekend’s updates.
Good night! I can actually sleep in for once!
Well, yesterday was my last day of lectures/seminars until after placement, when I come back for two weeks to prepare for my next placement in September. It was also the deadline day for my critical appraisal, which was supposed to be in by noon.
So what does my door decided to do?
NOT UNLOCK. I even tried my flatmates’ keys.
Eventually, at around 11, after jiggling the handle, I broke free from the flat and ran up the road. While I managed to hand in my assignment on time, I missed my two lectures, including a mandatory one on Child Safeguarding. Luckily, it was recorded just in case, and I can watch it online…this weekend when I’m free from coursework.
…and that caffeine didn’t have the magical ability to put me to sleep.
The next 24 hours look like this:
Now – 9am: finish critical appraisal
9:30am-12pm: EOPII lectures
1pm-4pm: EOPI seminar
I should be eating and working, but I didn’t want to miss a day of PostADay2011…
Flan has just stormed off to make himself coffee after I wouldn’t budge on my opinion that science covers more than he believes.
Flan, a philosophy student, believes that science = people in white coats messing around with chemicals and whatnot.
I, a lover of all things biology, believe that science has been around longer than the white coat. I believe that when we discovered fire, science was involved. Whenever we cook food, science is involved. When we look outside and make assumptions about the outside temperature, science is involved. Every time we think something and try it out, we’re testing a hypothesis. We hit a few sticks or rocks together and it made fire, we tried it again and it made fire again.
So who do you agree with? Is science something done in labs, or is it a common occurrence in more informal settings as well? Can other species use science?
If I have not completed the following by tonight, I will be very disappointed with myself.
- Read article.
- Appraise article.
- Write first draft.
- Become almighty expert on cerebral palsy, seating devices and outcome measures.
