the passed five days of Steven D’s story of a life: goalball, school insidences, future events…

Hey you guys,
Steve here.

I’m finally back, after a rather unusually long absence. It just seems that lately, the days are going by so fast, five day periods like this one just come and go in the blink of an eye. I just don’t get it.
Anyway, to keep this post a little bit short, I’ll tell you what you need to know.
As for my life, that has been going great since I last updated you. I have been attending school, working on stranded, chilling, and goal balling. I don’t know if I told you this or not, but I set myself a goal on stranded. If I told you this on Wednesday, you can either read this again because you enjoy my blog posts, or you can skip ahead a couple lines.
My goal for this game is that I will work on it at least once every day. I don’t care if it’s one page; even one sentence will do. But I really have to do this; because if I don’t, I could lose motivation to work on any further developments or forget about the project all together. I’m sure that both you and I don’t want any of that to happen.
Back to my life, there is some stuff that will be going on in my life in the near future. On Wednesday, if I have a ride home, I will be going after school to do a service project for NJHS, which if you recall back in march I joined the day before my birthday. NJHS, or National Junior honor Society (for those who don’t know), is something that if you keep good grades, and manage to make it in there in the first place will look good on your college applications. Anyway, that will get me one service hour (we have to have 10 and oh crap I don’t have one 🙁 ).
With that being said, I also have another Orchestra concert coming up on December third. But since that’s far away, and we have a break in between now and then, I will not talk much about it in this blog post.
Also while we’re on the subject of school, I got a big scare in Spanish class last week. For some reason, my report card said I got a 73. As you know, I’m not the kind of student who would score such a tremendously poor (in my book) score, so I was a bit worried. Turns out, I was worried for nothing. My grade in there is a 90. I don’t know if the grades got mixed up or what, but I’m just glad I have a better grade than previously thought.
Next Tuesday (I can’t believe it), is the start of thanksgiving break. I can’t wait for that! Also note that three weeks after that is Christmas break.
As for weather, it is supposed to get really cold this weekend. This week will be in the 60’s with partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies for the next few days, but Thursday into Friday, a cold front will come in and oh boy. It’s supposed to fall into the upper 40’s Friday afternoon with strong winds and rain. What a nice day for some coco and a day of chilling… sucks I’ll have to be at school.
Saturday through Monday are also expected to be in the upper 40’s.
While we’re still on the topic of weather, two extraordinary weather events have taken place, that leave me just a tad bit worried. First it was tropical storm Haiyan that slammed into the Philippines. That killed around 4000 people is what they’re saying. Also last weekend there were 40 tornadoes in Illinois. That is highly unusual for both the state, and the month the tornadoes occurred in… hmm.
On a last note, the development process of Stranded Part Three is going well. I have put in an obstacle course, which contains an avoid-the-RPG board. This is like whack a mole, but the RPGS pop out and you have to dive and/or jump in a different direction to avoid them. I will not disclose any more information on this object; you’ll just have to wait.
As far as pod casting goes, I have done episode 13. My parents have taken the carpet out of my room (their redoing carpet upstairs), and all my stuff with it. Once I get settled again, I’ll record episodes 14 and 15.
Other than that, I don’t have much else to say except…

Thanks for reading,

P.s. I’ve grown addicted to this game Hogwarts Live for about the third time. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it on the blog before, but if I haven’t here’s the link:

I hope you enjoy both that game, and this post.

Poems and Updates

Hey guys,
Steve here.

Two days have come and passed,
Wednesday is here at last.
Oh how life can go so fast,
some times don’t you wish you could make it last?
Well during that time I worked on my game book,
with which my goal is to get you hooked,
and not complain about how long playing it took.
And in this post I plan to give you a quick look.
Also I have a great surprise,
This is sure to make your spirits rise.
But be sure not to close your eyes,
for in this post the excitement lies.
Also the weather has been quite cold,
and honestly I think it’s getting old.
A warm cup of coco I wish I could hold,
I want it to be hot, but not to scold.
But instead I sit here thinking of what to write,
on this cold but happy autumn night.
Bundled up, nice and tight,
where the temperature is just right.

How did you like my poem? It was kind of a clever way to sum up what I have to say in this post.
First, since that was the first stanza, I’ll talk about the past two days. On Tuesday, I’m proud to say I got another item on my to-do list out of the way. Trashua is officially nine! Talk about wanting to make life last and wondering why it has to go so fast, jeez I can’t believe that cat is already nine!
Also, I have worked more on stranded. I can’t give you a summary, but have enough info to tell you what to expect close to the beginning. Let me do it in a fun way…

Introducing…

Stranded part three! The third installment of the stranded series!
Today’s forecast is, slugs the size of simi trucks, portals, modified google self driving cars, and mysterious forests!
Okay let’s get serious again. On the part where I was telling you the forecast above, those are the objects you encounter at the beginning of the story. Spoiler alert :).
Expect more information about the game, along with insight into more erratic things that you will find as I continue to set up the world for Stranded part three!

Onto podcast news, I’m proud of myself! I didn’t actually let you loyal blog readers down again. You appreciate my work, and I respect and appreciate you guys for reading this stuff. So, I decided to go ahead and do the right thing, despite my severe case of I Don’t Feel Like It itis, and get at least one podcast episode out of the way. As I said in stanza three of my poem, I have a surprise, but don’t close your eyes. The podcast has once again gone through changes. These changes, however, are far more significant than a simple name change, one of which occured a couple months ago when the Steven D podcast became the Steven and Devin podcast. Now, I have deleted and added new segments. Instead of a life and weather segment, my podcast starts with news and announcements segment, which covers news about the site, game and/or software previews that I might be covering, new developements such as storm or game recordings, and anything else I think would be revelent for that segment.
Next, I have the intresting things segment. Here, I will share intresting tips, such as hooking your microphone to your computer, getting your computer to talk back to you, doing a backflip across the solar system from the moon to Pluto and other stuff like that. 🙂 🙂
By the way, while the microphone thing is still fresh in your mind, I got a really funny comment from my spannish teacher, mister_madrid on Monday’s post. “You should work for the government mr Bond,” it said. I didn’t get it at first, but now I do. He was calling me James bond, the fictional character created by Ian Flemming, and featured in 12 novels and 2 short storie collections. James bond was an intelogence officer who worked for the secret intelligence service, commonly known as MI6. James Bond’s code name was 007. Don’t you think 007 would be the best thing to name a someone?

Getting back to what I originally came to write about, the weather has been very cold the past two days. If you remember Monday’s post, I said it would be that way for a few days. What I said about that coco in my poem is actually true. I really want some hot chocolate right about now.
This weekend though, it is supposed to warm up. It is supposed to get to eighty on Sunday, in sharp contrast to the upper fourties we had yesterday.
And finally, I don’t know if you know this or not, but this morning was the first official freeze of the season! Well I can say, it sure is freezin’ in this autumn season.
