I can’t get any work done while I’m in my room anymore. alsdgka;ldkjf
I think it’s partially because there’s no room on my desk to do any real work any more… At some point during this weekend I’m gonna have to go and clean it all up. D: Biochem is coming up in less than two weeks, and I haven’t reviewed anything at all yet…. At least physics is essentially over with and anal chem is close to being done.
you’re gonna miss me when i’m gone
Today’s graphic looks at the colours of transition metal ions in solution, and explains why transition metals have coloured complexes/compounds.
Fun fact of the day: Mn2+ salts tend to be even fainter pink than what the figure actually shows, to the point where it looks white. This is because a lot of Mn(II) complexes are high spin, which results in one electron residing in each of Mn’s d orbitals with all having the same spin. Electron excitations in this case aren’t allowed, as a promotion would lead to two electrons with the same spin in the same orbital (which is forbidden by the Pauli exclusion principle). This results in a nearly colorless complex. :D
forgetting something important in the other room just after getting comfortable
1. What is your middle name?
Chi-pang. It’s the English romanization of my name in Canto. :D
11. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Four or five? I have a pair of everyday tennis shoes (as in I wear them everyday, haha), an unworn pair of walking shoes, a pair of dress shoes, and two pairs of shoes that I really should throw out because of how leaky they are.
21. Have you ever been to the hospital?
Not as an overnight patient, as far as I remember. But yeah, I have.
31. What position do you usually sleep in?
Curled up against the wall in a bundle of warm fluffy blanket goodness. :D
41. Are you a good liar?
Kinda? I mean, I get nervous and start speaking really quickly and dropping words sometimes, so closer to no, I guess.
51. Are you scared of spiders?
I don’t like them at all.
61. Do you sing to yourself?
Occasionally, when I’m in the room by myself.
71. What makes you nervous?
A lot of things. Thinking about “real life” after graduating definitely gets me really nervous. xD
81. Can you roll your R’s?
Nope. I can’t even pronounce R’s correctly, haha.
91. Do you like your own name?
I didn’t use to (especially my Chinese name), but I’ve come to like it. :D
10. What shoe size are you?
13! Although my dress shoes are a 12, for some reason. O__o
20. Are you religious?
Not in the slightest.
30. How many pillows do you sleep with?
One, since it’s the only one I brought with me to the dorm. I’d sleep with three or four if I could, though.
40. Have you ever had a secret admirer?
No clue. Although I did have that creepy stalker on my Tumblr a while back…
50. Left or right handed?
60. Do you talk to yourself?
Not out loud; just in my mind.
70. Have you ever been scuba diving?
Nope, and I dunno if I could, haha. The fact that I can’t swim well is kind of a deterrent.
80. How many piercings do you have?
None, and I have no intentions on getting any.
90. What makes you angry?
Lately, a lot of things. But consistent irresponsibility is one that stands out.
100. Color of your room?
Kind of an off-white. Although a lot of it is covered by photos on my side of the room.
18. Do you want children?
Kinda. My thoughts are still evolving about this, haha.
34. Have you ever fired a gun?
Nope. I haven’t actually held one, either. :D
92. Have you already thought of baby names, and if so what are they?
Nope, not really. Although I do like the name “Michael” for some reason. :D
But on the bright side, I got an extra half an hour of walking in today!
