Conducive to study

I think it's fair to say that buying ER season 2 perhaps wasn't the wisest thing to do before the end of my exams. To be fair though, living in halls isn't particularly useful all the time. Last night I had to deal with a female student who had slipped down the stairs at 2.30AM and had a suspected buggered ankle. Cue them calling an ambulance and all the paper work I had to do. I know I shouldn't complain, it's my job after all. Call me selfish, but if you're gonna fall down the stairs, you would think doing it at a reasonable time like 10.30pm would be nicer. Also, it would be appreciated if you didn't smell like you'd drank an entire brewery before attempting to fly. I don't know, students today. For some reason, the smell of beer and booze on a man doesn't bother me, but it really isn't nice on a woman!
Ok, back to the books.
Currently studying - NRTIs and their treatment of HIV
Listening to - Tenacious D: Karate (on headphones of course, wouldn't want to disturb any first years!)

Why? The first years wouldn't give two hoots about disturbing you.

And the first years wouldn't give a hoot if you disturbed them either.

CMD, I wouldn't bet on that. They're the first ones to suggest that I have woken them up when I get back from town, even though I wasn't even in the building at the time. They whinge like you wouldn't believe! I've found myself justifying myself to my students that I wasn't even in that night - without trying to let them know that I have a personal life!
