I do too. Over the years I've gotten MUCH better at taking tests (I used to have mental breakdowns and cry almost every test, which was insanely embarressing and kept me from finishing in the time limit) but I'm still not very good at it. Ask me to explain something to you any day, but put me in front of people or sitting with a test and a time limit and I'm a wreck.

On the horsey side of things, for anyone who might be following this thread and not my other thread, Kenzie has officially secured herself a forever home with FaydesMom in Kentucky!!! She will be leaving in a few weeks, after all of her health certificates and such are in order and she's been given the clear to travel. Fayde and I plan to let everyone 'journey' with us to see how she's doing, and will be providing lots of updates, so be watching!

Grrrr...I always forget to look in the Journals, I had almost forgotten this thread. I wish they were higher up on the page, by the time I get scrolled all the way to the bottom, I've been distracted by 10 other threads I want to look at.

Hey, have you been looking at colleges yet? I know of a full scholarship, in-residence, 4 year college that might be right up your alley.

It is a "full ride", work at the school and in the community as payment, type college. They base their application on income, past life history (not PASTLIFE, just plain, lifetime!! ), community activism, "hardships" you have endured, etc. And it is open to everybody from everywhere. We have a friend in Michigan whose daughter is going there.

If you are interested, check out Home Page - Berea College

It's here in Kentucky and only a few hours away, so you could come visit Kenzie on the weekends! Hey, maybe even bring Sour up and she can stay with us!!

I'll have to look into that, it sounds awesome! O_o I'll have to look at what kinds of classes they offer, but it definitely does sound like something I'd be interested in...especially since its in Kentucky where you and Kenzie will be! Thanks so much for that link!

*sigh* I am so stressed right now. Redox reactions in chemistry are aweful and I don't understand them one bit!

What has you confused specifically?

Great! I knew we had to have some chemistry help on this form. It's wonderful the way everybody helps everbody on here with everything not just horses.
So glad you offered Sky, I did think of it just before I saw your reply. My degree is in Chemical Technology and I made all A's in chemistry and physics, unfortunately, it's been over 20 yrs now so .... I'm a maybe help by now. But always willing to try, and I give credit for my chem grades to one of the best chemistry teachers ever. It's amazing what a good teacher can do.

Well I have a list of steps for each redox reaction that I'm supposed to follow here: This is for half-step reactions.

1. First assign oxidation numbers.
2. See what was Oxidized (lost electrons) and write the 1/2 reaction.
3. See what was Reduced (gained electrons) and write that 1/2 reaction.
4. Balance atoms (if you have Oxygens on one side you can put water on the other to balance O.
If you have Hydrogens, you can balance that with Hydrogen ions (H+).
5. Balance the charges on both side of each equation (they do not have to equal "0" but they have to be equal on each side of the equation You do this by adding electrons that are negative in charge.
6. If there are fewer electrons either being lost or gains, multiply the entire equation so # of electrons equal each other in each equation.
7. Add equations together, cancelling anything that is on both sides of the equations.

I get that, theoretically, but when I go to USE it, the numbers start going crazy and I can't figure out what I'm doing. I can easily do the problems like A + B --> A + B of course, but the others are just plain confusing.

For example, problem number 4. NH3 + O2 --> NO + H2O. This one isnt even all that complicated and the others are way worse, just to give you an idea. I know that the ox numbers, I think its...

N^+3 H^-1 + O^0 --> N^+2O^-2 + H^+1O^-2

So after that I'm supposed to find each half step, reduction and oxidation. I'm confused as to whether I'm supposed to use the whole molecule, or 'weed out' spectator ions.

Oxidized: N^+3 H^-1 --> H^+1O^-2

Reduced: O^0 --> N^+2O^-2

But then I have an N in the products of the reduction which I can't balance out, and that's where I stopped. :/

Goodness, my brain melted just following the instructions...I didn't even get to the equation. I wish I could help, but all I can do with that is make alphabet soup.

We will soon give your poor brain a little bit of a break, at least a little less to worry so much about.

Endiku please keep chem of the forum. You are going to give me a heart attack. I have a whole semesters worth of math to do so please don't scare me.

Aghhh, I went to my teacher today for some help and as it turns out, all I was missing was the fact that H is an ion not just an element, so its charge is +1, not 0! BIG different! LOL

Fayde- mine too! Lol. It really isn't all that hard though, once you get into the groove of it. I just wish I would have realized that H was positive YESTERDAY when things were due, not today! *grumbles* Oh well, at least I got it in the end. The lovely teacher made my 'pay' for not understanding by having me work a ton of problems on the board in front of everyone. Not nice.

HorseCrazyGirl- This is the part where I laugh manaically and say 'Welcome to my piece of the horse forum' right? ;) My entire life right now is literally wake up, do school, go see Kenzie and Sour, homework, sleep. Wake up, do school, go see Kenzie... OVERANDOVER, so that's pretty much what you're going to hear about! XD I do school for 9-11 hours a day depending on my homework load. I hate being a junior ;)

What kind of math are you doing right now? I'm currently working on 'Discreet math' in Algebra 2. Its aweful. Honestly, when math starts coming up with things like synthetic division, numbers with exclamation points, imaginary numbers, logrithms, and 'discreet' numbers, you start to wonder if they're just trying to torture you. I mean really. If numbers are infinite, HOW the heck do you have an imaginary number?! XD

If its any consolation though, I'm in AP Chem that is preparing me for the AP college level test in hopes of being able to test out of the class. I don't think you typically learn about this stuff so in depth. You should see the new stuff we started today though! Naming organic hydrocarbons...what fun.
