Failed, but not regret.
For the Math challenges we were asked “to build a tower” for fun. We were in high spirits, full of confidence to succeed before the challenge, and we started to discuss how to design. Our math representative said confidently:” the number one will be ours.” It was a boast without shame.
But our condition was not good at first. Boys began to roll newspapers, and girls were responsible to do translation. Two of boys had been lost in resolving the difficult questions before the challenge began, we had to let them do that. The other four people began to build the tower. While we were building, we recognized the designer was good at designing, he considered the beauty, but he didn’t consider the stability after it was built high.
When it was built high, it was likely “the Leaning Tower of Pisa”. It was real, it was leaning, but it didn’t fall. “We have to right it, or it is not high enough.” Our math representative said worriedly. “No way, it is a loser.” Actually, it contained the effort of every of us. Each of us joined to build it. Even it was a loser, we would make it a semi-manufactured goods, because it had our sweat and emotion.
Later, our condition was worse. But we were not sad, conversely we laughed to tears. It was ugly and cute. No one wanted to take it to the front, but we were staring at it. It looked like a baby. Maybe it was annoying, but we had to look after it. It seemed to be the highest one under our insight.
We kept our mouth open for laughing when the final stage. Our wit math representative broke it, and taped the other half on the desk, which could make it higher.
Two hours of happy laughters and cheerful voices make up our defeat. The last laugh is the best gift for us in the challenge.
