How is life treating you this fine evening/ early morning
Eh, So So.
I went to a vegetarian barbeque. WHAT IS UP WITH THAT. I mean a barbeque is not a barbeque without some good old sausages and stuff.
On the plus side I also brought some LIME paint. What should I do with it though?
Or you could taste it? I've never tasted paint. Vegetarian bbq! You should've slipped them some real food when they weren't looking i.e. MEAT
I shoulda slaughtered an animal right in front of them in protest!
I might paint a wall of my room. The one where ive written metabolic pathways on. It reminds me of my nerdiness :(
do you have the entire glycolytic pathway up there? Gluconeogenesis?
Entire respiratory pathways:
Glycogenesis, link reaction, krebs cycle (TCA), oxidative phsophorylation. Even the friggin' cytoplasmic pglycertae phosphate SHUTTLE!
Glycogenesis, Gluconeogenesis, Glucogenolysis
Beta oxidation (fat metabolism)
Photosyntheisis: Light independant reaction - calvin cycle - RUBISCO involvement, light dependant reactions; cyclic and non cyclic photophosphorylation, photolysis of water
And trans and deamin- Ation
gotta catch em all! Haven't heard of ytoplasmic pglycertae phosphate shuttle, Ornathine cycle trans and deamin- Ation. You put me to shame sir
Well, glycolysis, as is often forgotten, happens in the cytoplasm - pyruvate is only soluble enough to move through into the Mt. Now, NADH+ usually yeilds 3 ATP in normal oxidative phosphorylation. But the NADH+ from the cytoplasm needs to gett INTO the inner Mt membrane. It utilises the shuttle to acheive this. Simply, the glycerate phosphate "piggy backs" it into the membrane. But there is a charge on the fare! It bascially converts NADH+ into FADH+ - this is to thermodynamically stabalise the entire system (the shuttle feeds directly into complex II of the electron transport chain - if it was NADH+, it would have to move it all the way to complex I - this wastes energy). SO! the NADH+ from cytoplasmic glycolysis actually yields 2ATP rather than three.
Trans- and de aminating pathways simply interconvert amino acids into each other. This is important in stuff like dabetes - this system slows, the amino acids linger and turn to ketones, which are radicals and destroy stuff.
Hope it makes sense
I'm keeping you in mind for when I start again in September! Pathways are ridiculously hilarious
It all makes logical sense - the best way to get it is to not memorise, but understand it. I hate memorising, my memory is awful.
Also, do you find that sexual reproduction (when learning about it) has become less hilarious? I miss bursting out laughing when the teacher says penis or vagina :(
even just reading the words. I prefer rote memorization of things lol I'm like "alright, I'll memorise this just now and then understand it later". Actually biochem pathways can work me into a murderous rage
Being angry at science is fun. What are you studying?
so fun when you just pick the notes up and throw them at the wall, hoping somehow that they'll make more sense. I'm studying neuroscience and I'm about to go into the third year to do neuropharmacology and some other things. And you?
UCL biomedicine, going into my second year. I really have no idea what im doing though. Im not really a beurocracy guy. I mean the stuff we learn is great. But it hate following course schedules and shit. I want to fly! Or at least do what I want to.
I got kicked out of royal oak library for calling my physiology notes "fucking cunts"
amazing :D yeah a thing I really hate about the schedules are the practicals. I TAKE YOUR WORD FOR IT. I don't have to do it, if you tell me this does that and you're an authority on the matter I BELIEVE YOU. STOP WASTING 3 HOURS OF MY LIFE. Oh lol indeed :'D
for sandwich time?
i'll try and catch it tomorrow.
see you there soldier!
little bit of tha illin
I think I've sorted my strumming problem. Just need to loosen up a little, you know?
nice, yeah gotta relax that shit. Were you totally tensed up before?
yeah man, you gotta *feel* the guitar, not play it
its real good, i wanna be an evil supervillain like the joker when i grow up
Really? Are you sure about that, Reeeaally?
Heath Ledger is dead...it was a silly joke. I feel ashamed now. I might as well as go dance on his grave
Hang on a tic
*shines up tap shoes*
it was really good indeed, joker made the whole film didn't he
the joker is hilarious. The hospital scene was quite a laugh
I really shouldn't be
i'm a bit drunk. how are you?
I'm good, just up because it still feels like 9pm to me. What did you get up to tonight then?
and well, i got drunk. only got back home about hakf an hour ago or so. good times were had. how was your eveing?
what's teh cardiff nightlife like?
i havent been in cardiff for a couple of months now though. i imagine it must be pretty dead now all the students are gone for the summer.
I don't think that we have ever INTERACTED...
but very very tired.
If you're tired then maybe a good 8 hour sleep could sort you out.
well, i do actually. i wanted to get something to eat before going to bed. i really wish i was asleep though, in fact im goint to leave right now to get some sleep. night xxxxxxxxx
this PAINS me :'( I want to INTERACT with you mousee
