So, it looks like a reunion's not gonna happen in November . . . maybe we should start planning for December now?
The Saturdays in December are the 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st. I believe there are SATs on the 3rd and ACTs on the 10th
Everyone in the area please respond to this as soon as possible, bug people that haven't responded, etc . . .

New calculator. Also new email.

On Saturday, I got a new calculator. I can guarantee 99% that nobody can guess what it is. Come on! Guess!

On a tangentially related note, I was looking through the contact list and discovered that I am listed as Starting sometime this week, that email will no longer function. Please use my gmail... Thank you.

Back to the calculator. If you can guess... hmmm... I'll give you a beta copy of my little game I'm working on.

Catch up time

O god so much work to do now...
Man i just wanted like two days of strike not 2 weeks!
So boring during last days of strike tho, even tho i saw Doom the other day (Preview's suck but I thought the movie was pretty good).
Good to be back in school but its gonna be torture the next few weeks

For Ezra

Remember the fortune cookie we had from FireCrackers during SIMUW? You and my fortunes said that in exactly 3 months from that day will be your lucky day. So this will just be a reminder for you to pay attention to what will happen.

According to my memory, Your lucky day should be on Nov.3 while mine will be on the 1st.

lucky day~~~~~~

Seattle area people READ this and RESPOND!!

Hello people.

well I didn't go to the first two reunions and I feel really bad about that, I know that there are people just like me that missed one or both of them. So I think we are obligated to make up for it. Hopefully there will be another reunion and then most of us could attend. So I wanted to ask every one to pick a date from the following days and kind of say what days they can come to the reunion.

I saw Edward last night at Math is Cool competition, and he agreed that it would be better that we do it this way. Also unlike last times, PLEASE RESPOND HERE SO I DONT HAVE TO BUG YOU WITH E-MAILS, etc.
so here it is. So please respond and pick a date from the following and say what day(s) you can come to the next reUNION. They are all Saturdays, but if you have another day in mind, just simply say it:

Oct 29th

Nov 5th

Nov 26th

we can not do it in Nov 12th or 19th because of TJ and State Math is Cool competitions.

one more thing, i think we have 2 of our TA's in seattle as well(Cj, steve), it would be SUPER great if they can attend as well, but i know they are really busy so i won't expect them to be free.

all for now.

i just did the psats. wow what a fun experience. right now im hoping that the rest of my school, and the state for that matter, did horrible so my chances will increase for being a nathional merit scholar. i wonder how semonti did? somebody tell me.


It seems the strike is going to last now the BCTF (BC Teachers Federation) decided to ally with other unions, unite the teachers across whole Canada, and perhaps start a general strike(they are planning on it, but very unlikely). I say this is kind of messed up even though I'm on teachers side. I visited my school site the other day and saw some of my teachers marching around the school carrying all those big signs. It appears they are enjoying it as much as we do, and they even had me a cup of coffee, good fellas.

update on canadians

as strike continues, it seems like i'm on holiday. perhaps we can call it fall break. The current decision from the BC supreme court freezes the teachers' union's asset so the teachers aren't going to get paid now. However, the union is pretty awesome in its spirit although it's not justified. it is said to form alliance with other unions such as the doctors, public transit etc to strike together. Wouldn't that be awesome?

5 day weekend continues

Man, the strike rocks. We canadians have just had a 5 day weekend and the news says that we possibly will have this week off as well. Oh yeah

Where did you all learn proofs from?

So, I am finally starting to learn proofs in my MATH 134 class at the UWashington, but it's awfully late compared to some of you. Still though, most math competitions up to the level of the AIME don't use proofs. You don't learn them from school. It's my speculation, but I doubt that most people would check out a book from the library specifically to learn about them. So, where did you gain that knowledge?

College apps

So . . . where's everybody applying EA? I'm applying to both MIT and Cal Tech, cuz those're the only two that don't have that bull "single choice" policy . . .

Man . . . last month, November 1st seemed so far away. Now it seems like it's tomorrow. *sigh* . . .

update on canadians

School strike!! i don't know if amercians do this too, but our teachers are on strike now. So no school.

Reunion was fun

Hey all!
Haven't been on much - probably won't either, if I can only grab occasional minutes at school.

The reunion was fun, even though only Edward, CrystalAnn and myself showed up. There was dim sum, there was skating, there was ice cream.

All you Seattle-area people without excuses... you missed out.
All you Seattle-area people with excuses... we missed you!

All you other-area people... we really need to plan something big everyone can get to!
