May 7, 2007 at 3:55 PMWell, I guess I did a lot better than I thought I did at my last competition. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I tied for second place and was awarded $700. This frees my parents from having to pay anything for summer camp and allows me to keep an extra $200 myself. Yes!
Looks like I'll be travelling the U.S. in a few weeks to try out some teachers. As of now, only Indiana University and U of Michigan are looking as if they will happen this month, but perhaps I can try out a few more in teh coming school year.
And speaking of school, tonight is my Chemistry final and then I'll be done with school! With the exception of a Latin course gone horribly wrong and the remainder of an illogical logic course, that is. I took the Chemistry SATII on Saturday, and that went okay. I wish I could've taken the AP exam instead, since that's more word problems and less "Trivial Pursuit: Chemistry." But it would've been rather pointless anyways, since I'm already taking a college course and get college credits (if I pass the final, which I'm sure I will.)What really amused me were the kids that sat down on teh morning of the exam and decided which subject exam they were going to take based on what their peers were taking.
"Which one are you taking today? Then I'll take that one too."
One kid confessed to taking the American History SAT when he hadn't even taken an American History course.
So all in all, I'm in pretty good spirits, but I can't wait until tomorrow. NO MORE CHEMISTRY!!!!!!
Chemistry can't be that bad. Ew, I have to take it next year.
Congrats on the competition!
