#MyDiary 30/03/2011 The last week has been a great one. Thankyou to the current BSS comittee for a really great ball on Friday- I was voted one of next years social secretaries, which I'm really excited about, and I'll try my best to do it justice! Only a few days left until the Easter break, and I'm really looking forward to heading home. Of...
#MyDiary 22/03/2011 The sunshine has put me in a really good mood, but makes it hard to stay inside revising! Nonetheless, I am determined to do better in exams this time round than January- I have been enjoying the subjects more anyway, so it shouldn't feel like as much hard work. I'd still rather be out on the lawn with my housemates!
#MyDiary 15/03/2011 After the not-so-hectic timetable of last week, I had time to realise I had been completely neglecting friendfeed- oops! I plan to rectify this with all the time I seem to have on my hands now. It makes such a nice change after the panic of three essays due in within a week! No tutorials or practicals- it felt like a holiday...
Can see everyone else in the library, who, like me, underestimated how long and difficult this practical report would be, everyone's trying to get it right, I call it a lesson learned! I'll know for next week to do it before it's too late though. I'm sure I'll get it done, just maybe not to the standard I would have hoped.
Just been to the #BS1010 help session- I find even if I don't actually ask for help just attending makes me get on with the assessment without being distracted, and then it's a relief when it's out of the way :)
#FridayReflection Bookmarking - how are you saving online resources so you can find and access them in the future when you need them?
I just favourite the websites that I found useful or will revisit, under folders with headings such as 'DNA Structure'- I always find this handy come revision time :)
#FridayReflection The #BS1010 assessment has really emphasised the importance of good structure and planning in an essay, even more important when working in a group so that individual members are clear on their roles. Google Docs has also proved much easier to use than I anticipated- it has many of the same features as the programmes I'm used to...
I'm finding the #BS1015 essay much harder than Building an Organism in #BS1003... it's difficult to know what to include, and I'm particularly struggling with the chemistry aspects- when I read it back I find that it is mostly, again, just A level biological knowledge.
My #BS1003 essay on building an organism isn't much more than A level knowledge...but I can't fit more detail on anything a little more advanced in while keeping to the word count. Is anyone else having the same problem?

Black is the new grey for squirrels...the indigenous reds are already a conservation hot topic, and now even the greys are being threatened by these non-natives, whose population growth has become a cause for concern. The genetic relationships between the three are quite interesting too :)
