This September is not like any other I've had. The BC Teachers' Strike is ongoing and is yet to be resolved. This means that public school has not commenced yet and as of today, we are one week into the regular school year. Though we are all uncertain of what is to come, I am trying to keep a positive outlook and make the most of the circumstances.
Despite this situation, universities are still in session and we have started our Chemistry 121 class at SFU. University is a whole different story than high school. Gladly, the seats in the lecture hall are extremely comfy, SFU students are very friendly, and our prof is quite clear. Our TA's are helpful both during labs and tutorials. However most importantly, you have to take initiative to learn. So far, concepts from both Chemistry 11 and Chemistry 12 show up in this course, so a note to perspective students: don't forget your chemistry because it isn't going away anytime soon... :)
