Eugene is a good - REALLY good! - Math student. I am hoping that he will continue on with (at least some) mathematics in his post-secondary education. No pressure Eugene but you certainly have a "knack" for the subject. If you enjoy it, you might want to consider a math degree. There are LOTS of good things you can do with that (NOT joking!).
One of my favourite things is when Eugene is in his "math-zone". You'll look over at him and his pencil will be going a mile a minute. He's scrawling all over the page. Sometimes you can hear him mumbling ideas to himself as he works away. And he works FAST! It's quite a sight to see! For a slow, methodical worker like me, it's very impressive to see someone fly through his work (while maintaining accuracy) like Eugene.
The other amazing thing about Eugene is how humble he is. Sometimes I'll see him completing a particularly difficult problem or puzzle. Rather than shouting at the top of his lungs - "I DID IT!!" - and dancing around the room, showing everyone his achievement (like I would) he usually shrugs and returns his paper to his binder. Not a word is spoken. Impressive. Mind you, maybe he never found the question that hard in the first place.
One of my favourite memories of Eugene is sure to be his goal for the future: "earning lots of money in order to buy a Ferrari. I want to drive it over to Mr. ****, in order to show him that he was wrong when he announced that nobody would ever own such a car in the Grad 2014 class". Talk about an unexpected (and hilarious) answer!
Thanks, Eugene, for all your determination over the past four years. I am sorry if you were not challenged enough at times. I wish you all the best in the future. I am sure you will live a life full of many incredible accomplishments (whether you get that Ferrari or not). Take care!
