Fruit flies like a banana.

Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.

This is a fruit fly. They're nice little things, and very important too. They're model organisms, scientists' bestest friends.

Anyway, about the time flying... I must have put in a bent shot somewhere, because my arrow's really off target. That counter keeps counting, but I don't seem to be learning what I need to be learning. 

If I were really interested, clearly, I would be soaking it up, like I''ve soaked up other miscellaneous interesting things I've read. But wierdly my interest is hard to muster when it must be mustered. I am more interested in mustard, right now, than my six exams. I guess because it scares me, revision, if I'm honest.

So all the next posts from now are me convincing myself about some topics being interesting. Hopefully learning about them at the same time.

If you're not me, this will give you an idea of what I've 'studied' this year.

All the things I need to learn are related to human health, but it seems to me not organised as a comprehensive look at that enormous topic. It's more like a hodge-podge look at a bit of chemistry and a few diseases. But that is how it has to be I guess, and when you're missing 40% of lectures it'll probably always seem a hodge podge.

 P.S. No-one called to berate me after last week's non posting of revision notes. I mean, my girlfriend tries, but berating goes against her kind nature

P.P.S. If there is not a revision posting everyday for the next two weeks from now, you can poke me in the cheek. Hard.
