Anyways, today blog is about my beautiful lab book!~ Generally, I am an individual who likes organisation and neatness in life :)
When I first started this project, I was basically using an ordinary pukka pad, jotting very messy notes onto the pad. However, when I went back home I found that it was really hard to understand my scrawny notes and the organisation of the pages/ additional print out pages very messy. In general mess for me leads to stress!
So I went to my University stationary shop near the labs and brought a suitable lab book. I had chosen this one because it was mostly plain but I liked the stripes of colour down the main page. Also, as discussed with Pedra, lab books aren't meant to have pages which you can easily rip out.
|The importance of having an index page. Reminded from Pedra! Helps you easily locate experiments done! Organisation is the way forward!|
|So the outline for the 8 week studentship! Now I understand the general experiment just repeats, repeats, repeats with different variables!|
|Preview of my lab book, basically i really try writing in a neat manner when in labs! I just don't have the time to write it messy and rapidly first time, then copy them up after lab. I actually have a life outside lab too :P|
|These were rough pencil notes made about the equipment and experimental steps during day 2 when analysing results, I basically asked follow up questions to do with things that I wasn't sure about in the experiment!|
