Emo Much.

Dear Chemistry,

Hooray.
Yes, without the exclamation.

Its over. The First Semester is finally put to an end, yet my remorse due to the incapacities and lapses that I accumulated in my first four months in college, will forever haunt me. Yes, I cannot be a Dean’s Lister, to my (as well as my mom’s) dismay. I used to pray that I will be able to compare to my mom, but I was wrong.

The first few months was a rollercoaster ride for me, you know? Mom’s dialysis used to be Mondays and Thursdays,after my class, then moved to Tuesdays and Fridays, my supposed to be FREE DAYS.

I think I have conjured some procrastination retrovirus. Oh please help me displace this.

No, I musn’t be overpowered by it, I know. But I knew too late. I maximized my absences, not knowing one of my professors was ”attendance-conscious”. Despite my average to high scores, she just.. Oh nevermind.

How sorry I am!
I wasn’t able to master Stoichiometry in time, for the Finals. Molecular Geometry was also a bit confusing, and Lewis acids and bases were a pain in the neck. I may be one of the 5 people who passed your final exam, but settling for second best wasn’t ‘okay’ for me.

I failed you, for a second time, in a rendezvous I assumed to be something we both shared — the Laboratory. Your humble student made a lot of mishaps, like not using the pipet properly, not checking the borrower’s slip with accuracy, and losing lab reports.

I am a total mess.
Its the bitter truth, and I need time for myself this sembreak to get back into shape.

Oh, help me find inspiration to take on your challenge for the next 7 semesters..

Yours truly,
TheErotomaniac.

  1. I wasn’t able to master Stoichiometry in time, for the Finals.
    – Master it now! You can’t survive Gen. Chem 2 – especially Analytical Chemistry – without using the factor label method.
    Molecular Geometry was also a bit confusing, and Lewis acids and bases were a pain in the neck.
    – They are the starting topics of OrgChem and BioChem. So be sure to master them. Actually, Lewis A/B are also applied in Analytical Chemistry.

    – Not an option for me, either. Remember: “Random tip for success: Don’t be afraid of being the best. :D Just do it!” – Kuya Raf (BS Chem IV)

    Good luck! BTW, I’ve linked you. :)

    1. Thank you so much for those insights. I will take note of it as I go through the Second Semester :), anways I bid you good luck on your Chemistry subjects for 2nd Sem! thanks for the link, as i have done the same thing as well for your link. :)
