A pretty awesome 3-day weekend

Hey guys,
Steve here.
Few, this weekend went by incredibly fast. We had something planned every day, so there wasn’t much chill time, and what little chill time I had, I spent talking to friends, reading, or sleeping, though I did squeeze in a bit of gaming here and there.
To start off, we went to Friday night fellowship last Friday night, as I said we’d be doing in Wednesday’s post. In case you didn’t know, Friday night fellowship is where everyone goes up to the church to play games, eat, and socialize.
Being that we were having a lot of fun, we didn’t end up leaving the church until about 11:00, thus I ended up crashing when we got home.
On Saturday, we had goal ball as usual, then we had to baby sit for some of our church friends because they were attending a graduation. They have 4 kids, the youngest being 2, and the oldest being 12. Thankfully, the 12 year old is a boy, so I hung out with him the whole time.
On Sunday, besides going to church twice as usual, I relaxed during the afternoon, and after evening church my family and I ate dinner with 2 friends of ours from church, though not the same ones who’s kids we baby sat on Saturday. Once again, this ended late, so we didn’t get home until around 11.
As for today, we had that family get together I talked about in Wednesday’s post. Also, I downloaded the game River Raiders, which you’ve probably heard me talk about on this site before. In fact, I’ve recorded my scores on the game scores page, and done several demonstrations on the audio game reviews and demonstrations page.
Well, after downloading it again, I got addicted to it. And around 8:35 or so, I started a game that lasted me 20 minutes, (the time you start out with is 5 minutes but the copious amount of bonuses and superbonuses I got added on time), and the end result, a score of 1,822 points. That’s by far the highest score I’ve ever earned in that game!
As for how I did it, the ghosts kept cursing me (I talked about this in the review I did on the audio game reviews and demonstrations page but when ghosts curse you it calls all the monsters in the river to your location), and I was able to escape the mob of monsters. In fact, the cursing better gave me an idea of where the monsters were, since it put them all in one place.
Also, I kept getting monster super paralyzer bonuses, so I was able to freely move about the river for short periods of time. So all of those, combined with my awesome skills, made for a wonderful, record breaking game.
Well, I guess that about wraps up this post. I hope you all enjoyed reading it!

An overdo update… well sort of

Hey guys,
Steve here.

When writing a blog post, I often find myself looking through it and trying to polish my writing. It seems as though I’m a perfectionist when it comes to my writing, even if I don’t pay much attention to spelling. That is probably the main, and only reason I haven’t blogged recently–the limit on time would rush me in the post writing process, and it would come out to me as being crappy.
I did quite a lot the past week; there were lots of things on my mind, lots of things I had to get done. I don’t know whether I had a stressful or exciting week; both of those emotions played a big role in my past few days. I guess that I’ll unfold my week for you guys in chronological order.
That was one of the least active days of the past week. I was disappointed that my school district held classes, but none the less I was still thankful for that unexpected 3 day weekend. One thing I did that day was post my Monday’s Musings post, which I hope you liked by the way.
Tuesday was when the stress started rolling in. On Tuesday, I found out that I had several written things I had to do for my history project. A title page, a process paper, and my topic… what I was doing (type of presentation)… and who was in my group. I normally prefer to work alone on these kinds of things so as not to slow me down or cause me to receive a bad grade because of miscommunication. Well I had to get those turned in by Thursday, and not to mention the project is due Monday. Thank God I’m almost done with it.
Besides the project, there was the choir concert. I was looking forward to it, however it added something to my to-do list. And, to top that off, now that I’m almost done with the history project, the thought that I have to work on Stranded is slowly creeping its way tback to the front of my mind.
So I guess that with all that stuff going on, I just haven’t had the time nor had I the motivation to blog the past few days. Speaking of which, let me tell you about the rest of my week.
On Wednesday, I forgot the NJHS meeting. Oh well, I got the hour sheet to the teacher, and all she did was act surprised… but I wasn’t kicked out. Unexpected, but none the less good for my college resume.
On Thursday, nothing much happened. I was relaxing in the bath, listening to another episode of We’re Alive, an audio drama about the zombie Apocalypse I remember mentioning on this blog, when I heard of a book that caught my attention. It’s called the Enemy, and is written by Charlie Higson. The book is about a mysterious disease that suddenly strikes everyone over the age of 16. They develop huge pustules, blisters, and boils, soon after they go mad and turn into zombies (eating kids and the like). And finally, they die… in a way that I’d rather not mention on this blog. I think you could read it because although you get a feel for how the disease progresses (from going mad to dieing), it’s not the most gruesome book you’ll ever read. And don’t tell me you’ve never read a gruesome book in your life.
Back on topic, let me tell you about Friday:
Friday was Friday the 13th. That sort of snuck up on me, but luckily nothing bad happened. I just remember waking up yesterday going “Wait… is it Friday the 13th?”
Also, we had a church event with my youth group. There’s only about 5 or 6 people in there, and all of them are fun. We hung out, hid, ate nachos and s’mores, drank hot chocolate, and generally had a good time. It was over around 11, and I was pretty tired.
So today started unexpectedly. I was awakened by my bedroom light, and my dad telling me that I had to go with him to take my “fat cat” to the vet. He had to go because he has a flee alergy and licked his lower back raw.
Anyway, I was genuinely grumpy that I was awakened so early for that reason, but I went anyway. After the vet trip, I spent the rest of the day at home, playing swamp and the like. Tonight was the exciting part, though.
Me, my sister, and my mom got to see catching fire! I won’t give the details, in case you guys didn’t see it yet, but I will tell you it was good. Best of all there was descriptive audio (you’d put on a headphone, and listen to the lady describe what was going on in the movie. So, me and my sister got the real hunger games experience!
Well I guess that about wraps up tonight’s post, because I’m getting tired, and have said all I needed to say plus some extra :). I hope you enjoyed this post, and have a great rest of your weekend!
