I just uploaded 20 some photos of my robot/maglev/gravity into the image gallery, so hopefully that helps out some of the less-used sections of the site. Plus, if I can say myself, my robot is pretty spiffy. :lol:

Got back yesterday from Math Team at UIUC. The campus looked the same (obviously) but it also looked different too :P Probably because it was from a different perspective, I guess.

Edit: How was prom, chia? (I still don't get why you would pay 100 something dollars just to go to a dance....)

How'd math team go for you guys? I forgot to ask the kids on my team what they thought, but I have the feeling they didn't do so hot considering almost all of their seniors were at prom... Speaking of which, I had a great time :) not quite how I'd expected though (more dubstep O_o) also the 'after party' was fun, I relearned how to play poker (a very important life skill! :P)
The ticket itself is $65, but of course then there's the dress and flowers and such; I thought it was worth it :)

I think Naperville Central did pretty good! They got 1st? I think on the 2-person Frosh/Soph team...

Haha, it was a bit drizzly the whole day, but I think it went nicely overall (It was a hassle running around in concert attire from Wind Ensemble's Super-state to my first test >.<)

There were lots of frisbees on the Quad...

How much do dresses usually cost for prom anyways? (too lazy to look it up myself :P)

Also, the freshmen on my team learned that Pokemon is a very good time-killer game (it also teaches you the importance of sharing, when there's 10 people who want to play and only 4 DSes :P)

I wouldn't know, as a member of the male population. And honestly I don't even know how much the tux rentals (or god forbid purchase O.o) are as my Prom plans died in the mill so it looks like I'm going to be sitting home with junk food and netflix drowning my loneliness in ice cream.
But on the other hand.... ICE CREAM :D

I think the average is $100-$200, though personally I think anything above $200 is overkill. One of my friends got hers for $30, another just borrowed hers from a friend.

Bleh, waste of money, if you ask me :P But then again, I've got a little less than 3 years to for my mind to change xD

I shouldn't be complaining (because I have none to take as of this year) but regardless, it's a bit of a pain to have to reroute to get to some classes, as one hallway has been blocked off >.< Then again, I'm lucky I'm not the Juniors who have their locker in their hallway; they can't access it during the school day. (Then again, I have a freshman backpack because I'm too lazy to stop at my locker during the day).

Ignore my complaining :P Good luck on them! (To mrsteven and chia and whoever else is taking AP exams)

So.... About that AP Physics C exam today... I'm definitely not getting credit at U of I for it...
(they only take 5s for Physics, which is totally insane since physics is the ONLY real ap exam anymore. Grr... There goes an entire year of physics I'm going to have to redo -_- and I got 5s on all of my practice exams...)
*insert more rant*
I left a couple sections blank
*insert more rant*
I hate U of I only taking 5s
*more rant*
I never want to take another surface integral again
*rant*

Thankfully Yale takes 4s and 5s for the same credit, and I think I have a shot at a 4 on both. I kind of lost hope for a 5, though I too also got 5s on all of the practices. I left maybe one or two sections blank but a few others were totally BSed so... :T
