Status update:

11/20/1895 I was finally given a name...Helium...after the sun, Helios, where I supposed only exist. Don't they know I'm on Earth also?

1/1/2013 Up,up,up,and away! I finally got to see the International Space Station through the film of a balloon!

10/9/2013 They say I can't sustain a relationship... Truth is, I just can't attach with anyone.

10/28/2013 Hello? Anyone to bond with? I'm already billions of years old. My youth won't last much longer. -forever alone-

10/29/2013 I remember when Carbon and I were best friends in elementary school. Then a few million years later, he left me with his millions of relationships. One day, I will be like him in millions of balanced chemical equations proving the law of conservation of mass (matter cannot be created or destroyed in a chemical reaction), but sadly, today is not the day (nor is any day).

 


Overview:

I am colorless.

I am a gas at room temperature.

My boiling point is 4.22 degrees Kelvin or 268.93 degrees Celsius.

My density is 214 kg per m^(-3)

I am a noble gas.

Information: 

 

Relationship Status: 

single (I'm a noble gas; I don't bond with other elements.)

Primary Relationship: 

none  (I'm not in any chemical reactions/bonds.) 

network: 

non-metal 

valence electrons:

2

reactivity: not reactive 
state of matter:  gas 
Location on Periodic Table: period 1, group 18 

Birthday: 

1895

Hometown: 

Sir William Ramsay in London, England

Movies: 

Big Helium Dog 

Activities & Interests:

I enjoy flying, especially in balloons.

I like the feeling of electric current running through me turning me pink.

I spend most my time trying to escape the helium tank. There's so much pressure in there!

As for reacting, I'm too lazy too do that... (I just can't react with anyone/sustain a relationship *sob*).

 

 


Places:

4.57 BCE-was at the surface of the sun. "It's so hot."

5/5/1824-was in a balloon. "Weeeee!"

5/27/1953-was at the peak of Mount Everest. "I was first."

Since the big bang-was/is with nobody. "I'm just too cool for others (not really)."

Flying with carbon and hydrogen bonded together to form rubber. I'm feeling so much peer pressure that I want to explode outwards.

Traveling through space with oxygen in a solar flare. I'm about to cause a geomagnetic storm on Earth. *evil laugh*

Glowing white-orange b/c of all the electricity passing through me.

-feeling extremely hyper  

Being concentrated into a laser with neon. Together, our colors form an extremely bright red-orange. 

I'm really fired up today. I'm burning with Carbon and Hydrogen in the form of methane as natural gas.

-feeling full of fire

You say you cannot attach with anyone. Why is that the case? Have you simply not met the right element, or do you prefer to be alone?

I guess... I don't really know..... It's just that..... Well....I just don't want to be with others. So yeah, I prefer to be alone, yet I still envy carbon and its millions of chemical bonds. Maybe I just haven't met the right element.... Who am I kidding, I just want to be alone.

It's just that I'm too full of myself on the outside, like how my valence electron shell is full. I guess it prevents me from bonding.

Wow helium your the least reactive element on the periodic table!!!!!!!!!!!!

helium said

at 9:47 am on Nov 5, 2013

Yeah, along with all the other noble gases. It's not that bad actually.

neon said

at 5:45 pm on Nov 4, 2013

we both don't react well with others... and together we from a bright red/ orange color. We should be best friends!

helium said

at 9:43 am on Nov 5, 2013

Sure I guess, yeah let's be best friends. Too bad the lasers we form are not used as much as before.

hydrogen said

at 6:56 pm on Nov 4, 2013

We're both like neighbors! So close yet far away...Want to get together?

helium said

at 9:40 am on Nov 5, 2013

Sorry, we don't really chemically bond well. See you on the sun!

I know how you feel... being a Noble Gas isn't always easy. Being stable can have its ups and downs.

helium said

Yeah it sure can. Oh well, life just goes on (forever).
