I was tapping my pencil on the desk out of complete boredom. Our sixth grade science class was learning about the periodic table and I wasn't impressed. All those boring boxes with strange names sitting in front of me. The table represents all matter known to man, but to me it was lifeless. Just words and numbers on a page. I memorized the information I needed to know and promptly forgot everything the moment I turned in my exam. I thought that would be the end of my journey with the table of elements. Thankfully, I was wrong.
