Back in school, our friends plus I were on the math competition team, there was 6 of us on the team, plus both of us traveled to different schools to compete in math competitions, however it might sound boring to a lot of people, but our friends plus I found math to be exhilarating, then we studied algorithms plus statistics all week, in order to prepare for our math competitions, then during our senior Year, our friends plus I were invited to participate in a substantial math competition. The competition was held in a different state, plus only invited teams were able to compete. Our school helped raise the necessary funds, so our teammates plus I could attend the competition. It was a Wednesday plus Friday event, which meant our friends plus I would stay in a hotel overnight. We had several chaperones attend the event as well. There was a chaperone plus several students in each hotel room, but my best neighbor Carol plus I got to share a room. Carol’s mom was a single of the chaperones, plus she was a lot of fun. We arrive to our endpoint on Sunday night, hoping for a nice night of rest before our Morning competition… Unfortunately, the HVAC method had something different in mind… All night long, the HVAC method rumbled plus groaned. Carol plus I could barely sleep at all, because the HVAC method rattled all night long. We barely managed to sleep 3 hours, before the alarm sounded at six. Despite the noisy HVAC method plus lack of sleep, our team plus I scored second highest out of 27 teams.
