Required Post-Christmas Post

Christmas is sort of over for now... Unless you count the whole "christmas season" to also include up to Epiphany, but i don't.
I got some cool stuff for Christmas! I got Mario Kart and Wii Sports Resort, and some nice clothing, and books and lego and a crazy Rubik's Cube thing... It's called Rubik's 360, and it's WEIRD.
But not really as hard as a Rubik's Cube is, which is handy. The "trick" is a little difficult to grasp, but if you've taken linear algebra, it's logical and easy. :D
We also got Rockband 2 for christmas! And several other video games for the Wii; Alex got Madden '10 for his Xbox.
We debated going to Best Buy and getting in on all those sweet deals, but decided it wasn't worth it. It's snowing and windy out. It's been snowing since Wednesday night, and i've had to shovel ~4 cm of snow of the walks like FOUR TIMES in the past two days. I'm about to head out and do it again...

Note to self: Remember to make clever post title

I finished my exams! Whee! Now i have so much free time!
Well, actually i was done on monday afternoon. There was a mistake in the exam schedule, and i didn't check my school email during exam week, so it wasn't until monday afternoon, at about 2, when i found out i had an exam at 3. I managed to get there in time though, which was good. Monday night and Tuesday were spent at my friend's house, playing video games.
Things to do over the break though: Running, Skating, Video Games, Hopefully an animation in flash or something. i wanted to do it last month, but i was busy with exams :S
Also: I have to buy something for my sister, but the only thing she's asked for is a pair of gloves, that are sold out EVERYWHERE (They are Olympic Gloves, really nice, hard to find.)
but for now, nothing to do for a little while...

So that's where they come from...

I should really be doing my comp sci project right now D:
Instead i'm connected to the internet, which slows my working down to ~5% CURSE YOU YOUTUBE.
Also: Final exams are coming! I should be studying. I'll start later.
Also: Aidan gave me his lego. MORE LEGO = MORE POWER! But i don't have time to play with it until like christmas, so stay tuned for an even more epic castle. Also: I asked for more lego for christmas(to my mom's chagrin) so i can make a second castle and have a battle of mythic proportions.
Alex bought an xbox 360! Now i have one more thing to distract me from being productive! Yay!
Yesterday there was a track meet. I ran the 1000 and the 600. Also there was a math contest called the "Putnam" contest. It's named after some famous math guy. It's also the hardest IN THE WORLD. it takes six hours to write, but i was only writing the second half (I was running for the first half.) It was seriously hard too. I read the problems and i was like

Then i was like "okay, i sort of understand this one, kind of i guess." And so i ended up getting solutions to 3 out of 6 problems. Then i found out that one of the solutions was wrong. And the other two... well let's just say they're not the most acidic solutions in the world. But they're not the most basic either!
Finally, before i go to do work, you people should listen to owl city. It's awesome.
