Alice is a biochemistry student writing her dissertation, trying to pass her degree and spending too much time on the internet. She started this blog in revenge when she got turned down for a paid blogger position at her university. She enjoys science, baking and horse-related activities. Contrary to evidence, talking in the third person is not one of her hobbies.
