It's Monday, but I don't have the blues.

In the old Brilliant, you could buy Brilliant shirts. Unfortunately, they don't anymore.
Ah yeah..that's me.. I got it back when they were giving them out for points..
Dang you. @Suyeon Khim can I get one of those? :[
Wait who are these from left to right? I'm interested to connect the names to the faces. :D
Guess who's missing in this picture.
If you think he was supposed to be in there, then yes.
No, it was @Nikhil Pandya and @Nathan Antwi
Day 2: so many things! The main two highlights, to me, were he seminar with Professor Mahesh Sharma and Bill Chen and the introduction to tomorrow's hackathon.
Mr Sharma is a great mathematician, and a great speaker as well! Along with Mr Chen, he talked about the importance of good long-term economic decisions, which we must start taking as early as possible! He also pointed out the importance of mathematics throughout histort, and how it really lies at the foundation of our modern society.
I can't wait for tomorrow hackathon, the stakes are high, there will be some great prizes awaiting the winners, and I'm a
sure the level of competition will be sky high!
Lesson of the day: you must always aim high, and never stop investing in yourself: reading, writing and mathematics are the three fundamental pillars of knowledge, and the more skills you acquire, the more possibilities you will have in your future
A freaking epic day
Day 2 has been the best day for me so far. The breakout sessions began. More adult mentors arrived.
My highlight for the day was Andrew Mayne. For those of you who don't know who he is, just do a quick google search. I was always really interested in magic [you can check out my profile], it was incredible to talk to someone like him. He is a really down-to-earth guy and took the time to answer all of my questions. He's also a really good teacher. He's also a best selling writer. And he's going to be around all week. Maybe I'll find some time to talk to him.
Day 3 is the hackathon and I have no clue on what I'm going to do.
Day 2: An awesome day! Dr Sharma's breakout session was amazing, he talked a lot about why it is important to get "liberal arts" degrees(Math, CS, Physics...) instead of Engineering, for example. As we had some time to spare, he proposed the problem Thad mentioned above.Also, we had an introduction to the Hackaton!
Today was awesome. We had a great seminar with an MIT/Oxford professor Dr.Sharma and Poker Master Dr.Lee Chen. It was very interesting. Dr.Sharma posed a cool problem involving this and @Petru Lupsac presented his solution in both English and Italian. At dinner we hang around outside and I had my first bite of American pizza. I found it both delicious and excessive. I am excited about tomorrows hackathon!
