==My thoughts on each year==
 
βˆ’
===2018-2019===
 
βˆ’
It was definitely a really fun year. Dynamic Planet was really fun (glaciers!), and my partner was amazing. We pulled through every tournament with a first-place medal is Dynamic Planet. Fossils was also really fun, and my partner was also amazing. I had originally started out with 3 events (Fossils, Dynamic Planet, WIDI), but at regs I volunteered to do Disease Detectives and Experimental Design as well. After regs, I dropped WIDI, because it didn't feel right for me, and I did Pentathlon at state. I also subbed in for Herpetology last-minute, and after guessing on all the multiple-choice questions, we somehow got fourth place. That was definitely a really successful first season for me. The one thing I do regret is that I was never able to ever get a medal in Experimental Design. I was really hoping to get one at state, and we were just one place short of getting a 5th place medal.

This year was definitely interesting. I wanted to do six events, like last season, but my coach didn't let me and wanted me to focus on 4. I agreed reluctantly and did four events. At UChicago, I butchered all my events, coming nearly last in all of them. I didn't expect it to be so hard. After that experience, I studied harder, and I had more success at Westinghouse. Although they only ran two of my four events, I was able to medal in both Fossils and ELG. Our team was extremely successful at Westinghouse, getting second place. After that, I decided to pick up Disease Detectives again (a member of our team was unable to make it to regionals), but regionals got canceled 3 days before it was scheduled to happen. It was a rough week for me. I was already busy with managing our team's team spirit committee and other competitions when our coach got a message that Illinois Tech was canceling all large events and gatherings due to COVID-19, including our regional tournament. We had high hopes for regionals, but they got crushed. Oh well... At least we have next year, right?

Here are some of the tests/notes/guides I've made:

**I am currently planning on making a revised version of the beginner guide. (If there's anyone out there who wants to help me, feel free to PM me and maybe we can work together)

==Other Activities==
 
βˆ’
I do other things with my life.
 
βˆ’
I like other competitions. One of my favorites is Future Problem Solving. I'm proud to be a 2018 international finalist in FPSPI. I also participate in Invention Convention (I placed at the National Invention Convention in 2020), I qualified for the citywide spelling bee in 2020, and of course science olympiad. I also do track and field and cross country. I play piano and violin. I also like to sleep. A lot.
 
βˆ’
I am also raising an avocado plant. His name is Alvin.
