Chemistry = fun

Woohoo, oral chemistry exam! It was great to do very little and still get top grades :P

But now I'm finished with school (I'm actually going to miss it, it was such a great school...) and I have two weeks to learn some very advanced chemistry before I'm going to Oslo again for a three day chemistry crash course. The olympiad people have sent over a booklet of preparatory problems and they are extremely difficult (except problem 4 which is ridiculously easy). It took me about 5 hours to finish just half a problem. The fact that Hungarians use different symbols doesn't make things easier (L? L?! It's Ksp people!!). And they do funny things with Nernst's equation without explaining.

Mhm... my hovercraft is full of eels.

You know, I'd be tempted not to win those Olympiads if it means to stay inside and learn lots of stuff during summer holidays. ;)

Good luck.

Ah well, the weather's awful anyway. Might as well do something useful (and it is actually rather interesting)

Mm. Wish my exams had been as easy as that. Good luck with those Olympiads. The academic part of my brain has already shut down for the summer. :)

Chemistry is very crazy. You're in good hands... unless you have someone unbearably boring teaching it.
