    Minutes ago, the teacher had instructed for us to begin the problems, and my heart pounded from the pressure and adrenaline. I ran down the list of problems, checking if I had made a careless error on any of the problems.

My love for math started from these competitions, testing my knowledge in an exciting, reward-based way.

I believe math is important in everyday life, useful while getting into college, and getting a job, leading to a successful life.

    Although there is the slightest feeling of catharsis for Lear is Olivier’s film, it is not as evident as in J.E. Jones’ version. Similarly, catharsis also arises in Kurosawa’s “Ran”, because the bloodshed that occurs at the end of the story seems to be at the hands of Hidetora and Lear, subsequently it was in their decision to trust those who wished to hurt them, and banish who wished to respect them.
