There are several things (of which this is the least) that are injuring my attempts at comping. Most of the internet, for one. Initiation for another. I'm going to try to get my intro written today (which is to say, copied for the most part from what I did this fall) and run a few more reactions. I need to have something very solid to report, and right now I'm having trouble convincing myself I'm much ahead of those members of the Department that do ABSOLUTELY nothing.
And, oh, terrific. This is what I need. Criticism on my chemistry. From other group members.
