Physical Exercises

On August 28th, I went to a military training base in rural area of my city with my fellow students. Originally, I thought it would be a tough time based on all my past formidable experience with such training. However, I didn’t take it anymore during my time in both middle and high school. I took a trip and had computer science classes instead. A fun fact is that I became the whitest among my class after they coming back from training.

Apart from worry, excitement also haunted around me because it’s been a long time to have a training. The result turned out it didn’t let me down and I really learned a lot from this fantastic experience.

Being a team leader

Trying my best to be the team leader is always my style, especially participating in a short-time camp. I frimly deem it’s a great opportunity to promote and improve myself. Then I became the leader of group 6 without any hesitate. I deeply know that I am lack of leadership and most important, the decisive personality. This time I failed again on improving that. Everytime I become a leader in a program, unfortunately, I never felt improvement in this field.

Besides that, I believe I did great a great job. Organizing the team, encourging everyone doing high-altitude program and cimmitting myself to everything I can.

My first VEX tournament of the season

My first VEX tournament of the season

Now I am on the bullet train from Xi’an to Baoding, crossing one tunnel after another, passing one bridge after another. Just a few minutes ago, I was sleeping deeply, but now I think I am conscious.

Sleepless night


From the beginning of the summer vacation, I was studying TOEFL everyday following a regular routine – getting up at 7AM, doing TOEFL practice all the day and then going to bed at 11PM.

However, Last night even didn’t close my eyes for a while because of the unfinished autonomous program. It’s a hard and harsh work putting tons of parameters and variables to my mind simultaneously. Fortunately, with my team members Tony and Jessica helping me reset the match field quickly and accurately, finally I got it. Never forget the colorful cubes leaps on the match field which seem to lose control.

Nervous time


To be honest, I didn’t put too many efforts in the VEX competition these summer vacation. I just came to participate in training two days before our setting off. I am really awkward to my excellent team member and coach Mr. Han.

The robot that will be used in the competition hadn’t been finished two days before. Our manipulator Tony hadn’t practice controlling the robot like catching the cube and pile them up in the specific area which is not easy and definitely needs time to be familiar with the way of controlling.

Luckily, we had done everything in time under the unity of our team which is the most valuable and precious thing I got from the robot club. I saw everyone mounting screw carefully, writing engineer log amazingly… There exists many good personalities and characters that I need to learn from them.

Summary of 2019 VEX Worlds Championship

VEX 2019世锦赛总结

难忘的一次经历。

久别重逢

作为刚刚转入国际班的新生,我很荣幸被韩老师选中参加VEX2019世锦赛。赛前,有激动、欣喜,也有紧张与茫然。VEX,于我而言是一个既熟悉又陌生的竞赛项目。初中时在韩老师的带领下参加了“一网打尽”和“星光璀璨”两个赛季,也收获了很多。本以为与VEX在此分道扬镳,没想到如今的久别重逢。与熟悉的金属结构件相遇、与机器人对抗电机高速旋转的齿轮声相遇,更重要的,更重要的是与初中时有着共同热爱与梦想的同学们和老师重逢。这一切都让我激动不已,就像是星星之火在无数个暴风雪夜之后重新成为熊熊烈火一样,照亮了我的心。

当然,新的问题接踵而至。VEX推出了全新的V5主控套装,新的编程环境,这一切都是需要我去学习和尽快掌握新的知识;这里有了更多陌生的面孔,有身经百战的学姐和学长、还有已经征战将近一个赛季的国一的同学们。而我,作为一个新加入机器人社团大家庭的人,如何让大家认识我、了解我、信任我是亟待解决的问题。

The true first day of 2019 VEX Worlds

The true first day of 2019 VEX Worlds

Fantastic & Unsatisfactory flights

The first trip begin at 6:00 in the morning, it’s the most intensive boarding for me, which we arrived the airport an hour earlier and boarded before the taking off for just 30 minutes. Also, the huge robots are carrying to the special channel. I heard the obvious noise when the conveyor belt was running.

On the flight, everybody was very tired because of staying up the whole night. But I didn’t feel sleepy, looking at the outside of the windows. It was charming and moving and also I have never seen the sunrise before.

Chicago O’Hare Airport

The second flight from Beijing to Chicago operated by The United Airlines. To be honest, it was not as good as I thought before. The food, space, comfortability and so on were not very good.

And I deemed that I was able to review my schoolwork during the flight period, but I was totally wrong. I just played with Jessica and had lots of fun. We talked about a lot about school, life and many other things. I thought she is a really nice girl, a little bit like QBS. Having feasible childish is the most attractive aspect to me.

We went around the Outlets in the afternoon but I bought nothing. It’s totally the same as the Outlets in Seattle. I don’t think that I belong to this kind of places.

In the evening, Mr. Han held a meeting between us. Many things have been mentioned, but the most impressive thing for me is that his affirmation to me.

And also my duty is looking after the base, managing the batteries and being charge of replying with Jessica. I hope that we two can co-ordination and co-operate to make our team better. Can’t say for sure that our relationship can make progress, of course not that kind of relationship but other kind of relationship.

Tomorrow will be greater!
