Trying to do my project at school is like a video game, where you have to complete your task before you can go on to the next level.
Keep your mussels alive. If you fail, go back to the starting line.
Prepare your reagents, but first you must hunt for the equipments you need. Improvise if you can’t find it.
Use the equipment but first you must get the computer to turn on. If not, find the elusive guardian lab tech to help you. That will cost you time and some HP.
Test assay to see if it works. If not, rework the protocol and retry until you get something.
You get EX points of course and when you run out of HP, you head down to the canteen for a caffeine boost or over the bridge to the overpriced green mermaid for coffee flavoured milk.
I can’t say that this is a fun game but by end of April it’ll all be done and I can finally sleep.
