I find it somewhat disturbing that the last high school math contest comes before the end of high school. After ARML, I still have to go to my school for nearly two more weeks. It seems that this is cruel and unusual punishment, since math contests are by far the greatest reward for being trapped in the horrible prison known as high school.
Fortunately, today is the last day of classes. This means that next week I get to go through the horrible ordeal known as graduation practice. Why we need to practice for graduation is beyond me. Perhaps some people have trouble walking through the aisles. Or perhaps some people might get so bored with the whole ceremony (which I’m sure will be boring) and be sleeping when their names are called to pick up papers with their names on them. Yes, that’s right. At the ceremony, they don’t give us diplomas. They give us the diplomas after the ceremony so that we get to wait in long lines and be very bored. Another point for the idiocy known as high school bureaucracy.
On another note, we are arranging a dinner, and Guanxiong seemed interested in arranging it. Although I have arranged just about every activity I have done in high school because I don’t trust anyone else to get it done in a reasonable manner, I let him do it this time. I told him it would be on June 14th. So he proceeded to tell everyone that it was going to be on June 7th, even though half the people had conflicts with June 7th. Why don’t people listen to me!?!?
