I got back to Sunnyvale on Thursday morning. Nothing especially interesting happened for the rest of Thursday and Friday.
On Saturday and Sunday, I went to watch the California high school chess championship. I had a good time seeing some friends from high school. It was strange not playing though.
Yesterday, I managed to become very sick. I don’t know what happened, but I had a bad headache when I got up, and it just got worse after that. I don’t know what is wrong. Maybe it’s the flu, but it’s just cheating to get the flu after having had a flu shot. That’s not fair, but nor is life. My mother thinks it was caused by stress, but I don’t believe for one second that stress can make a person sick. At any rate, I wasn’t allowed to take AIME today, although I had planned on taking it just for fun. I suppose I should still solve the questions. At any rate, I feel much better today than I did yesterday.
