Weekends are hard times because there are no actual weekends

So far I haven't had a single free weekend in Oxford ever. It's just not possible. During the week, work piles up and the deadlines are always on Sunday evening and/or Monday morning so the weekend is vital for completing work and maybe reviewing the ton of material covered during the week. Just maybe. I'm still doing the homework, which is due in less than four hours. I've been at it since after breakfast, now I need a break, the deadline will be no problem. Some of the questions I probably won't figure out, but that's not the point, the point is to try and read up on the subject and try to apply the knowledge. I'm done with the first organic chem sheet (9 pages) and have around three quarters of what I can answer of the second sheet which is a lot harder. I also have to finish maths, but I can do that in the evening (but I'd rather finish that earlier). It's due at noon tomorrow. The new maths lecturer sets much harder question that the previous one, even the maths tutor agreed on that. So far I have one out of fourteen questions, but there are probably some more that I can figure out. Good that homework isn't graded. The entire first year is pass only. I never thought that when studying chemistry, I'd also study maths and physics. Biology lectures start later this term, as well as some extra physics problems classes with the tutors in college. That's going to give such a nice schedule. But at least it will be the maths tutor giving the basic physics classes, he is very patient even when people make elementary mistakes or ask questions about things they should know.


All right, I'm done with what is due at 5 p.m. today. That's good. Not so good is that I'm stuck with the Synthesis problems for tomorrow. Right now, I can't focus on it anymore. Guess, it'll have to wait until later. I'll ask Hyun tomorrow what he wrote on some of those problems, because some question, I'm just like huh . Maybe I'll see whether I'll find him today, although I don't know where he lives.
