More of the life-updates

The back is worse than ever, maybe because i forgot to take physics journal out of bag today.....bag also had in it chem journal, observation book, and lab coat. ou-ou-ouuuuuuch shitty shit does the back ever hurt......

aaaah lab coat. this lab coat was spotlessly pure white when i was in 9th.....back when we didn't have much lab work. lab accidents were many.......
There was the great iodine accident (where i ended up contaminating a whole beaker of starch with a little bit of iodine) and the blue spill (spilt methylene blue dye on the table, my socks, uniform, and a teacher's sari. The labcoat i'd borrowed for that day was unbuttoned, thus remained spotless) in bio lab......then last year, after i made my decision to take arts, i lent my labcoat to kay, who'd lost hers.
Then when my arts decision was crushed and i went off to science after all, i took back the lab coat.
i didn't have to use it till august, when i opened it up for the first time to find two huge brown stains on it......acid burns, i was told. i was soon to add to this menagerie of stains with my own share of recent accidents, all during salt analysis.....

salt analysis sessions : 5
spills : 1 large size, colour-green, source- CuCl2 solution which i was analysing.
accidents : 2 test tubes, broken while cooling after heating. H2SO4 involved in both cases.

i attribute it only to my excessive hyperactivity and the state of frenzied excitement i attain in chem lab. knowing me, it ain't surprising.

i understand how taht feels well not exactly coz i never had a lab coat but
in my case it was a pink apron spoilt by suaces and stains of coffee and oil in teh home science lab.......... lol.....
doesnt feel all that good wearing it ..but hon in the end it will be one of those memoirs and you will remember how you spilt whatever acid..........in teh end it will serve as a good laugh ............
