Bad News: I don't remember chemistry.

I mean, it's been four years since I did any of this stuff, and I quite seriously do not recall ANY of this. I discovered last night that I don't really even remember how to balance equations. *FACEPALM* Although at least THAT's gradually coming back to me as I look over chem help websites.

Ugly News: There's no way I'm even going to pass my prelab. None.

As hideous as it is to contemplate having to do this for the FIRST wet lab, I think I will skip it, catch up on some missed math homework instead (I hear we have a quiz today), and contact the instructor as per the course outline to ask for make-up work. Claim I was awake all weekend (I was, actually), and that I slept in (I did, actually, since I was planning to get up in the wee hours and figure this crap out, and I didn't wake up until 6:15 because I forgot to set an alarm, ARGH). And that it will NEVER, EVER happen again, really.

(I hope and pray. *dies* Why, oh why, does this lab have to be at 8 am?)

Then I'm going to go find some tutors (electronic or otherwise) and I'm going to spend ALL AFTERNOON (since I have no classes) on REVIEW, REVIEW, REVIEW so that I'm not sitting in front of my lab manual next week looking at it going, "What's a mol again?"

I got a 98% in chemistry once. It HAS to all be in my brain SOMEWHERE, I just need to nudge it out.

Good News:


Um. I look really, really awesome in a pristine, white, knee-length lab coat. If I do say so myself.

Yeah, that's not a lot of good, but there had to be SOMETHING.

It's been a while for me too with the chemistry thing, but I might be able to help with some simple stuff. I got a degree so I couldn't have been that bad at it. Although, it's a degree from Trent University...

Thanks for the offer. I went over balancing yesterday, and that, thankfully, all came back fairly quickly. So I know I just need to's frustrating knowing that I DO basically know all of this stuff, but I'm going to have to do hours of extra review to dig it out of my brain and brush the dust off.

Yikes. Hope you start remembering more stuff reallly really soon!
It sounds like what i'm worried about will happen to me this year or in a few years...though being sick i might not have actually learnt it all just might not be in my head at all! Which is then worse...or is it?

It's truly amazing how fast you lose it! I feel especially sorry for someone I've exchanged emails with, who's apparently been out of school for something like 12 years, and now she's trying to do a BSc. So...she seems very driven though, so I'm trying to kind of copy her approach to the work.

Whoa! Out of school for 12 years? I do not believe I could do anything like that. *looks shocked*
