Result #353: I failed to afford a chemistry set so I won't be Breaking Bad any time soon.

The Resolution: I've always been a fan of the theories and philosophy of science. I read books and watch documentaries about scientists but when it comes to actual physical science I don't know all that much.

I took basic science in high school but didn't pay that much attention. The only thing I faintly remember is a teacher once put raisins in Mountain Dew and told us the raisins were some form of sewage treatment thing and that the Mountain Dew was supposed to be urine. 

The raisins appeared to swim up and down as if they were alive and the teacher finished the lesson off by drinking the concoction.

To this day I have no idea what I was supposed to have learned there but I will always remember the showmanship.

I also remember dissecting owl vomit to find mouse bones.

I think it's time for me to stop just yelling SCIENCE and start learning what it actually is. 

Update #1: The Conclusion.

Date: 12-19-2015

Maybe if I was actually interested in the Breaking Bad drug I'd be more motivated to learn chemistry. Fortunately the only drugs I'm interested grow naturally and I have a card that gives me the ability to just call up and have whatever I need delivered right to my door... AND IT'S LEGAL!!!

That said I'm still interested in learning chemistry. I'm not fully sure what I would use it for other than maybe creating dry ice or maybe trying to find a culinary use for the techniques I learn.

I don't know, I think I'm more interested in just having Bunsen Burners and beakers filling my room like a mad scientist and I just want this to have a valid excuse to wear a lab coat more often.

Who knows, maybe I'll figure something out some day and as always I'll keep you posted if I do.

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
