Fuck working in lab groups. It's an exercise in nail-biting, tooth-grinding frustration.
I fucking hate working with other people. I hate having to trust other people not to fuck experiments up. I hate having to trust other people not to record things incorrectly. I hate having people take the things I want to do and then fuck them up. I hate sitting around waiting for people to figure out how to do things I not only know how to do, but can do faster and more accurately. I hate having to trust people who don't know how to use analytical equipment. I hate having anything of importance riding on people who don't care to be as precise as I like to be. I hate having to use someone else's data for my own analyses. It drives me up the fucking wall.

One of my lab parters dropped a test tube halfway through a run, and had to start completely over. Moron. Now I'm in a shitty mood.

I got to play with a spectrophotometer in bio lab today! I got to do repetitive analyses requiring multiple tedious recalibrations and precise setting adjustments! I got lots of messy data sets and get to do linear regressions and T-tests and make them orderly and meaningful! And my lab partners weren't threatening to kill me for being furiously anal!

I'm going to have so much goddamn fun. I love this kind of shit. Call me crazy.

You Are An INFP

The Idealist

You are creative with a great imagination, living in your own inner world.
Open minded and accepting, you strive for harmony in your important relationships.
It takes a long time for people to get to know you. You are hesitant to let people get close.
But once you care for someone, you do everything you can to help them grow and develop.

In love, you tend to have high (and often unrealistic) standards.
You are very sensitive. You tend to have intense feelings.

At work, you need to do something that expresses your personal values.
You would make an excellent writer, psychologist, or artist.

How you see yourself: Unselfish, empathetic, and spiritual

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Unrealistic, naive, and weak

not sure i agree with all of it, but most of it is pretty accurate . . .
