During the course of the past semester of Chemistry 120H, I have learned many fascinating things. Everything that I have learned has been applied to the next thing that I learned. All the information is just piling on top of the next forming a tightly fit jigsaw puzzle of chemistry. I am just hoping that all of this will apply to my life in general, so far I have not been disappointed.
From the first day that we had class, I learned something new. I still remember the hydrogen balloons being ignited and the loud pop that flew through the classroom. I knew from that moment on that the class would be an interesting learning environment and that I would cherish every bit of information. Everyday after that the work load kept piling on and I just kept on smiling. I loved how it all applied to each other and how I could now explain how things in the real world worked. Personal revelations and discoveries of the world around me are now everyday occurrences now, thanks to the class I was fortunate enough to take.
The classmates that I was able to get to know so well have grown into my heart and I hope that they feel the same way. I was able to learn about each and every person in that class and now I am able to say hello to them each time I see them throughout the day. I even known each of their names, that is a giant feat for me. My lab partners were wonderful to work with and I have a bond with them now. We as a class got to learn together and from that we will never be separated.
Chemistry is proving to me to be more valuable in my life than anything else I have held close to me yet. I have gained unbreakable friendships and long-lasting knowledge. I can now explain the world around me and I have the capability to understand the yet unknown. I look upon my education in chemistry so far and smile. I smile for what has happened to me so far and for what is yet to come.
