What to do, what to do

Got back from uni not that long ago. That bit of writing I posted earlier is going towards a short presentation that my group is doing next week, or should I say, I'm doing next week. Not to say that the group isn't doing any work, it's too early to determine that now, it's just that I was elected to actually get up and present the thing. This year seems like it's going to be better. A lot of students last year failed, so I suppose that weeded out some of the non-workers, and this year we have a bunch of grad entry students, and nurses that are converting to the more qualified nurse (enrolled nurse to registered nurse). They all seem to be pretty focused on doing the work and getting good grades, which is good for me, as it's nice to work with people that have similar outlooks on things.

On an unrelated note, I stumbled across a nice article that has a bunch of apps that could be useful to uni students. A few on there caught my eye; the timetable one, the dictionary and the assignment tracker. I don't really know why I'm interested in them anyway, as I don't even have a smartphone. Oh well, I can always dream that I'll happen across the money, can't I?

I've also felt that I want to make the blog slightly more interesting (only slightly, I don't want girls screaming at my door or anything), so I've decided to include a game that I'll do from time to time. This one is called spot the scientist. 

Considering that this is the first run of the game, I'll give you guys an easy one.

First post to get it right wins a picture, drawn by none other than myself using paint, that says that you got it right.

Well done to Astronomy Pirate who won the ridiculously easy competition. As promised, a picture made entirely by me (background and all) in paint photoshop. If you want your own, be sure to check back for my little competitions!

  26. Those apps will be so useful.. Good luck on the groupwork, I feel your pain honestly. Its good that the non-workers were weened out though.. Theres always 4 or 5 students that drop out each semester here. Its sad to see them go, but its still nice that theyre doing what they want.

  27. Group work is the worst, always a slacker or if you're really unlucky more than one.

  28. Jesse, I took Mike's advice about cropping it into an avatar. What do you think? It you don't want me to use it, let me know.

    ReplyDelete
  29. No worries my friend! I made it for you, you can do what you like with it. :)

    It looks great btw, I'm very proud of myself. The spiral arm looks almost real when the picture is small enough. :)

  31. The real space cowboy is Jamiroquai :D

    And in the picture we have Никола Тесла. I think he deserves that his name is writen like he would do it in his childhood years.

    Love that man!
