I am, simply put, obsessed with Chemistry (my walls are covered with periodic tables). My enthusiasm annoys everyone around me, and IYC just gives me another excuse to harp them about everything Chemistry. That's my first reason.

My second reason: I plan to pursue a major in either Chemistry or Chemical Engineering, and I'm hoping by immersing myself in the subject a little more than usual, I'm double-checking that I know what I'm getting myself into.
