Tag Archives: placements


It’s the summer, so it’s raining. And I need to get up onto the roof to do some work.

As it’s summer Uni is relatively empty, but there’s still plenty going on. A couple of PhD students’ experiments are getting to a stage of requiring a lot of technical support. Also usually over the summer many of the undergrads get placements in industry. But this year there seem to be fewer industrial placements going, and for some reason this year there’s more funding available for research and placements within the university. So it’s relatively full of those little horrors who, having pissed me off during the semester, won’t even give me a summer break but are still here.

It’s also exam re-sit time. (Was going to say ‘Hahaha…’ but I guess that’s a bit cruel, so I won’t.)

Oh, I knew there was something else bugging me about students…
As for being text’d at 9:30 at night; things that start with ‘Sorry to bother you…’ Ahhhh…. can’t even have my evenings in peace and quiet!!! (Had it finished …but I’ll buy you a beer…., now that would have been so much better.)
