I’ve had a bit of a cough lately, and whenever I’m in public, I practice proper coughing etiquette by coughing into my arm as to avoid spreading germs. But every single time I do that, a person next to me will say, “bless you”… thinking I sneezed. Then I’m stuck there wondering, ‘Should I correct them and let them know it was a cough? or should I just say thank you?’ But if I say “thank you,” then I’m technically accepting a ‘bless you’ under false pretenses. So I kind of just nod my head once and don’t say anything. Then they look at me like I’m rude for not saying thank you, *sigh*… Why does life have to be so complicated?

I wish I had my own lab at home.

When I'm playing in the kitchen, I'm already simulating some of those things and the results are usually tasty things.. But I have no idea what projects I'd work on if I did indeed have a chemistry lab at home. My first thought is making polymers but I think the university lab is better equipped to handle those temperatures and pressures. Even obtaining the material would be a hassle..
It'd be nice to have a lab on an island. I'd be the chemistry equivalent of Dr. Moreau.
/yet another case of imagination making reality seem suckish

A woman once said: "Great minds talk about ideas, average minds talk about events, and small minds talk about people."
So broaden your mind. Stop talking about social sciences and talk about the weather instead.
