Wow, you have a lot on this week and I thought my week was rough.
I hope all goes well for you this week and your exams.

Is the choice for specialisation in formulation science next year, what you are planning to do as a career path in pharmaceutics?
Jack of all trades, master of none.
Hence why i'm in all these different threads and boards.

Just another typical week for me, haha!
Thanks! ;D

Not sure if I'm going to answer your questions properly here, give me a shout if I don't :)
For pharmsci, we have a choice of 3 specialisations/majors (Drug Discovery Biology, Medicinal Chemistry, Formulation Science) from second year, semester 2 onwards (as the first 1.5 years is all core subjects) - of which I've chosen to go down the formulation science pathway (the most popular stream, from what I hear, haha). Typically this'll allow me to either a follow a path in the pharmaceutics/biotech industry as a formulator/pharmaceutical scientist (drugs or otherwise), or I can also undertake a research pathway- one of my 'formulation science' lecturers/my course director is one of these researchers, she has a pretty cool project going on that you can read about here :)
2017-2019: Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science (Formulation Science)
2020: Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science (Honours) (Drug Delivery, Disposition and Dynamics- focusing on molecular biol and editing of glowy proteins)

Cool, I'm also not surprised at it being the popular one considering formulation is where the industry is going now, unless that has changed in the last year or so.
Should I be concerned that you could be drugging me the next time I see you for "research" purposes XD?

Reasons to hate group assignments:
- I have 3 due this week, one due tomorrow :O
- I feel like I'm running around like a headless chook half the time
- So many group chats
- Little time to do any other uni work

Reasons to love group projects:
- Whipped cream
- They're nearly over
- Getting to know your group members better

Glad you asked!
Don't mind the audio in these videos, but here's what I meant by whipped cream:

Don't see how I'm adorable, but thanks E6P! ;D

I'm going to need some context for this.
Here's the context:
We had to come up with a delivery system for our group's "improved drug", so we chose to go for a spray foam. As we had to represent our chosen form, we settled on a can of whipped cream to represent our final product. Our presentation had to be creative, so we chose to do an infomercial, and I got the job of demonstrating the "product". ;D

The final video has been done, and it looks so good (although it is cheesy- which is the sole intention lol). ;D

We finally presented the final video, and that's a relief!
However, I have discovered that hayfever really truly sucks, and I can't take antihistamines, so I'm really struggling right now. 😂

It was a nice warm day otherwise! :)

Ahh, another victim has been struck with hayfever.
Have you tried eye drop and/or nasal spray as well?

I literally can't take any antihistamine product- tablets or otherwise haha :)
(Also added irony about tablets- I can't swallow them, and I'm doing pharmsci...)

Do you get adverse side effects from taking them?
