But there is a big power cut no Thursday, whole building had no electricity in the early morning. At the time we came to lab, the hood

still not working. So I just went to fill the liquid nitrogen and did some computer works. I was planning to finish another sample on Friday if I can do the experiment on Thursday. That seems I have no chance to finish another sample this week…. 

We finally ate the chicken leg in mensa.
