It’s not that I didn’t care about my high school chemistry classes. It’s just that, after spending the first few weeks of the semester trying to wrap my brain around the molar weight of Schrödinger's cat, I realized that no matter how many times I looked at the periodic table of elements, it was never not going to resemble a chess board from hell. Call me “defeatist” – I prefer to think of myself as having embraced the fact that discretion is often better part of valor. And, in this instance, I decided to discretely transfer into a different class to earn my science credit.
