Flatmate Update

Last month I told you all about my flat-mates and our weight loss, exercise and food obsession and how we had been managing. Well, they loved the blog post! I have been given more food talk/blog post ideas along with possible story lines. It’s been an amusing month.

The pharmacy flat mate was crazing chocolate, but not normal chocolate, chocolate fountain style chocolate. So, on a student budget we did the best we could. Below is the image of our chocolate fountain. It was assembled and used in the early hours of the morning aka 1am.


We had a variety of fruits at hand, keeping tabs on our 5-a-day intake is still important to us. 

Sadly, not all of us flat-mates were able to enjoy this. The forensic flat-mate, who will soon be given the name of either the ‘non-existent’ flatmate or ‘an extension of library’ flat-mate, was unable to join us, this is because she has found a new home, the library.
Now that the library is open 24/7 we barely see her. I however get the privilege to spend my Fridays with her, as we work together at the Universities Enquiry Unit.

The 1st year-not-happy with her degree and the fellow biomedical science flate mates are also well. They recently took their organisational skills to new levels by labelling the content of our fridge, something that has not been done the entire time we have all lived together. However, their organisational skills were aimed solely at the bread. The sense of which has still not made sense. However, we all have quirky ways of expressing ourselves and if that’s what they needed to do, well that’s what they needed to do.

Hope your all enjoying yourselves

Time

The SI (International System of Units) unit for time is the second and the current definition is “the duration of 9 192 631 770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium 133 atom." This is based on the cesium atomic clock which is an instrument that uses an electronic transition frequency in the microwave, optical, or ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum of atoms as a frequency standard for its timekeeping element. 

I have brought up this definition because I have a very strong feeling that it is not working properly, the cesium atomic clock. For quite some time now, ‘time’ has been passing by at a pace that is much fast/speedier than I am use to. Yes, this is a different way of saying time is flying and the purpose of saying it in this manner is to emphasize the importance of time. 

This moment, right now, it’s not coming back and the importance of making the most of it is absolutely vital, especially for us University students. The Biomedical Science final year students have been lucky enough to get an extension on the final year project. It was initially due on the 2end of April, but now is due on the 14th of April. 

If any of you final years are reading this, I urge you to make the most of this time and write as much as you can to the best of your ability. 

All first and second year students, I hope you have started your revision. If not, please get cracking. We only have about 2 months left more specifically 39 days left! 

Let’s work hard and give our absolute best. Good Luck  J
