II - Alex Turns 16 Years Old - A Year In Retrospect




Song:  Chevalier de Sangreal

Composer:  Hans Zimmer



This a continuation of my previous article 
on Alex's 15th year of life in retrospect
(Alex just turned 16 years old).

Just as in the first article...
I have supplied a link underneath each photo
to its corresponding article.

























Alex had fully designed his own math contest for elementary, middle, and high schools.
He made up the problems and provided solutions, he designed the contest format...
he helped score it, and he presented the awards.

Alex loves writing tests, contests...
and teaching manuals.





































































----------------------


Alex is very busy studying everyday, as he is loaded with AP and Honors courses
through his online high school, plus an online Japanese course through BYU...
and his advanced math at UNR.

Alex should finish his high school courses by August next year...
and so, he could graduate high school a year early so he could take
more courses at Mountain College and UNR the following year.

Alex wants to prepare himself for full time university for the following year.

He will send out his applications to various universities 
by the end of the next calendar year.

Alex knows what he does during this year as a 3rd year high school student
will reflect most in his high school transcripts to the universities.

Alex has also done very well at UNR and Mountain College these past...
over two years (every Summer as well as every Spring and Fall semesters
since the Summer just after the 8th grade)...
and these transcripts will be very important for his university applications as well.


-----------------------

Alex is entering a higher pressure year...
as he knows the great value that universities shall place on it.

However...
Alex being Alex...
he merely does his best everyday anyways.

So...
there is no big change of schedule...
and there are no major cram sessions...
as he studies everyday...without fail.

Alex is a forwards looking young man.

He has his dream that he wants to fulfill...
and, he just continues working towards it.

Although it involves many hours of daily long and hard work...
for Alex...
it is a labor of love.

When someone has a dream to fulfill...
everyday is a step towards it...
and so...
everyday is a day filled with passion and purpose.

This is why Alex loves his life...
he is constantly walking towards the mountain peak of his dreams.

  2. Yes, I have fun doing these. He is growing so fast. He is still the very pure hearted child I have always known and love so much. I know once Alex goes out on his own, I will be especially looking at the annual retrospectives.
