I saw the periodic table

So did I. In fact, I struggled so badly with chemistry when I first learned Chemistry that I wanted to conquer it. I enjoyed the challenge and have been dabbling with chemistry ever since. LOL.

Whenever I encounter a challenge I either get mad and knock it out or I learn all that I can about it and figure out why it's a challenge for me. Then it no longer becomes a challenge.

I was always interesting in how things burn and explode so I decided to learn how and why it happens and how to do them by myself.
Also I did have a really good chemistry teacher who allowed me to use any chemicals from the lab in any amount I want for any experiment I wish to do :)
