Does anybody remember me?

I'm finally back after a long absence, though I fear I'll be leaving again pretty soon. Russ celebrations are coming up (17 days of madness) and exams are right after that (whose bright idea was that?). And I'm still catching up from those two weeks of school I missed while I was being nerdy in Oslo. Gah.

Who cares. Those were two great weeks :) A couple of others participated in both the chemistry & the physics finals as well, so there were a lot of geeky inside chemistry jokes floating about. I've started using ångstrøm instead of metres in everyday conversations. Much more fun, especially the funny looks I get :)
I got 6th place in the physics finals btw (but do you think that matters to my physics teacher? Nooo... he hasn't even mentioned it! *glares*)

Okay, on my to-do-list this week:
Finish that bloody religion project I've been 'working' on for weeks
Study for a religion test
Clean - no wait, disinfect my room
Do half a chapter of maths (ah bugger, that's due tomorrow *head --> desk* )
Write four Norwegian essays
Read fifty pages about changes in the Norwegian language in the 20th century (the guys of the Norwegian Language Council really had - and have - too much spare time on their hands)
Finish (actually I still need to start) a horrendously boring chemistry project about iron (why can't it be about crystal structures?)
Physics. Physics. Physics
Study for the international chemistry finals
Paint my Russ coat. Yaay.
Eat chocolate (what? I want the satisfaction of at least getting one thing done)

Blah blah blah. Pic? Of course you want a pic.

This is a cookie that has been soaked in liquid oxygen, and then set fire to. Those chemistry olympiad people were insane, but it's shiny.

And for those of you who prefer bits of old stone...
A sculpted rope, to strengthen the window. This is from the Dom Church in Utrecht. Apparently, medieval stonemasons had a sense of humour.

Welcome back.

You could add: reading up on blogs to the list, that would give you two thing you could get done. :)

Welcome back, stranger! :)

Congrats on the physics! Glad you had a good time.

...Ouch! That's a long to-do list. Hope you manage to get it all done. Or, at the very least, get the chocolate eaten.

Oh, yeah, reading up on blogs. That should be on the list as well. I've done the chocolate though. Plus two of the essays. I'm getting somewhere :)
