I tend to not like to complain, but it’s late and I feel the need to vent. My organic lab TA didn’t post the H-NMR results that we did last Monday until 4:00 this afternoon and the lab write-up is due tomorrow at 5:00. This meant that I wasn’t able to actually work on the analysis and results of my lab report until this evening. Even though I wrote the experimental section and introduction earlier in the week, the bulk of the data analysis depended upon getting the actual results from the experiment. I’ve been working on it for the past 8 hours and have finally finished.
This is a load of crap – I have an exam on Thursday that I could have been studying for and I have to work tomorrow. My TA is applying to medical school this cycle and, as much as I hate saying it, I really don’t want to see things work out for him. Seriously – how can you not have the organizational skills to get your students their lab write-ups earlier than the night before they’re due!!!
This is ridiculous. I’m tired. I’m going to bed.
