I hope everyone had a wonderful and joyful thanksgiving!
As for my thanksgiving, it seemed to fly by. Even though two days were spent doing nothing and being in the house all day, this break still managed to get away… some how.
Tuesday was the last school day. It was long, yet there wasn’t much work to do; I guess that kind of helped. As for Tuesday night, I was happy that the break was finally upon me… so I took advantage of it, and well… took a break and spent the night relaxing.
Wednesday was one of the days I was in the house all day. I worked on Stranded that day, played Hogwarts Live… but did nothing else even close to being productive.
Thursday… now that was a good day! I mean I got to eat a whole bunch, and chill with the family, (what I’m most thankful for).
Friday was another day like Wednesday. But on Friday, I found my digital voice recorder (I hope to record podcasts, game reviews, and storm recordings on it because it is very high quality). I also found out something about headphones that you and I never knew about… but you’ll have to wait until the next podcast release (this should be soon since everything is back to normal in my schedule) to find out what my new tech discovery is.
As for Saturday, all 4 of us got up early and ate at Dennies, before picking out our Christmas tree. I hope to get a picture of it when we decorate it so you can see how it looks. After getting the tree, I spent the rest of the day researching the type of recorder I have (the model), so I could determine what software and/or drivers I would need to connect it to my computer. In case you’re wondering, it’s a Sony ICD-PX720.
Not only did I do that whole recorder thing, but I also reorganized my room, and had to do a whole bunch of cleaning and rearranging. Also last night, I helped my parents and sister bring christmas decorations down from the attic. So basically, yesterday was quite a busy and productive day… *pats myself on the back*.
As for today, it was a sort of average day. After going to church like normal, I just chilled for a while and then all 4 of us went by my nanna’s house so my dad could fix their roof, and then my papa’s house so we could give him a birthday card.
Well I guess that about wraps up this update. I have an orchestra concert Tuesday that I will hopefully blog about, but that’s about it for what’s coming up. Thanks for reading this post!

P.s. I have quit work on stranded for now, this way I can focus completely on my National History Day project. I’ll resume work on Stranded once my project is done.
Hey you guys,
I’ve had a good last week of summer. I just pretty much got to hang out while my mom and sister did all the back to school shopping Monday and Wednesday, the 3 of us and my of&m (orientation and mobility) teacher went over my new school schedule, and me and my dad went on a bike ride yesterday and today. We completed the 9.23 mile ride in 35 minutes and 13 seconds yesterday, and 35 minutes and 1 seconds today. I don’t know about our average speed for yesterday, but it was 15.9 miles per hour today.
If you’re wondering what I’m going to do the next 2 days, I can’t tell you. Probably the same thing I’ve been doing… hanging out and messing around the computer.
Speaking of computer, I’ve done some awesome things to the site, and also found a new game to be addicted to. I’ll first start with the site change.
Instead of having a links widget on my side bar, I now have a “My Favorite Sites” page. If you go there, you will see my links organized into the following categories:
audio and podcasts
other useful stuff
sites that caught my unseeing eye(misc).
Now I bet you’re wondering, “What game could he possible be addicted to now?”
I’ve got an answer to that. There’s this online; multiplayer game room with the following card and board games/features:
Poker Texas Holdem
The Little Exam
and, the ability to create free chat tables
pretty much fully customizable
you can chat any ware
I think you should check it out.
Well, I guess that’s about it for this post. See the bottom of it to see my school schedule.

5. Spanish–yep, the two language classes are right next to each other.
6. Orchestra–yep, I’ll have a lot of concerts this year…
7. Science–I have a good teacher (It’s better to have classes your big sister has been already).
Please watch this vid I found browsing around on youtube:
Now, tell me. What do you think this teenager was thinking? I’m sure that if I were him I would be freeking out. Have you ever heard a message like this on a weather radio or otherwise any other commercial outlets?
So, let’s start with the good news.
In my tech class, my grades have been getting better as the year has been going. My main goal however, was to reach 100% on my tech site presentation. Finally, I actually achieved that goal today, after my presentation. I thought I was going to make an 80, but I actually made a 100!
Now, let me tell you about my week.
Overall, it was a pretty good week. It lasted a very long time, however I am glad to tell you that there are a little bit less than 3 hours before the start of spring break. Since I ride the bus, it will start at 3:45 for me, and it is 11:50 right now. I can’t wait for the break!
Weatherwise, there is going to be some storms tomorrow night. There is an 80% chance of the rain!!!
Well, I hope you enjoyed this post. Though this was brief, don’t worry I will post again soon. For now, enjoy what you’ve got.
