I think I haven't posted here before, though I've lurked (and posted a bit) for a while.
So, hello everybody, I am fro Singapore, reached the drinking age in some countries (not all), and currently a lost sheep applying for universities and thinking about what to do for the next 9 months or so. It's like a 3/4 gap year kind of thing now.
I'm seriously considering doing chemistry in university, and become a organic chemist someday. Though practical wise chem (esp in academia) doesn't seem too promising so that's making me reconsider a bit.
I love org chem, especially synthesis, which makes me kind of jealous that so many of you have the chance to work around the lab making stuff and doing analysis. I did try doing lab for a short period and I thoroughly enjoyed it, though I think if it's a job it gets annoying heh
I thoroughly liked problem of the week when it was still in existence. Very sad that it's gone
Actually since there's quite a bit of interest in proposing synthesis schemes, why don't we start a problem of the week on that? Like proposing a scheme for a compound. And whoever gets the most elegant one wins! I think some of my friends at school really enjoy that as casual activities.
So: hohoho! Hello! Nice to meet you all!
