I ran into a kid that was in a summer class I dropped this past summer. He was wondering what happened to me and if everything was going alright. We talked for a while and he said a lot of things that were motivational, pretty much everything I needed to hear at the time. One thing he said stuck with me and I now say it to myself multiple times a day:
"It's only hard because you haven't done it before."
With that in mind I just took my first chem exam and I have to say I feel pretty good about it. :)
Have an amazing day!
