It would seem my previous concerns about the chemistry class were premature. The initial quiz was difficult, but it also served to highlight exactly where I needed to brush up.
Now I'm holding a solid A in the class and am finding the mechanics of organic chemistry are coming back to me.
We're currently working on benzene and other aromatic compounds, plus doing Carbon-13 and Hydrogen NMR spectroscopy.
It is actually really fun.
Like playing a rogue in early PvP. Just watching all the little problems get solved with precise application of subtlety and stabbing.
Also, within the week, I'll be building a new high-performance rig. I'm looking at 32Gb of RAM and a 4Gb Radeon GPU. Plus other fun things.
Things are coming together nicely.
