Thanksgiving break


Hello all,
Steve here.

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.

Life updates and a weather wrip-off


Hey guys,
Steve here.

It’s Monday, yet it has already been half the school week. Tomorrow we have school, and then we’re done!

Last weekend, the good weekend it was, ended in a great disappointment. You know that winter storm I was so excited about? Turns out, the prediction was off by 3 degrees; if it had been just a simple 3 degrees colder we would’ve been slammed by unprecedented winter precipitation. In total, one half inch or greater amounts of rain fell across North Texas. According to this artical on the RAL Weather Center website, we could’ve been dealing with between 1.5 and 5 inches of snow, thus leading to a rare and potentially significant storm, one that would certainly reach Winter Storm Warning criteria.
Unfortunately however, the forecast changed approximately 1 hour and 12 minutes after update two of my storm monitoring update was posted to the Weather forecasts page at 6:45 PM CST. Basically, meteorologists decided at last minute that the ground would be too warm to sustain any winter precipitation accumulations, and it turns out no precipitation of that type fell where I live anyway. Although there is the possibility for snow flurries tonight, as stated by my NOAA weather radio, school will most definitely not be canceled for tomorrow, a pretty sucky thing since my school district is like the only one in school this week.

——————————-
Changing subjects, I have been doing good, but rather cold this Monday and the recent weekend. On Saturday after posting that blog post, I went bowling as promised, and scored 117 points. And, as if the day couldn’t have been any more predictible, I spent the rest of the afternoon, you guessed it, chillin’.
Yesterday, after going to church in that windy blustery weather, I got to chill because I had no sister around, :). I did the following productive things yesterday:
-became a second year student at hogwarts (on the game I play that is supposed to simulate hogwarts, you have to become a level 15, defeat Voldemort, and you advance a year. After the normal seven years at Hogwarts, your title changes to wizard, and eventually god, and I don’t know what from there).
-Took a nap. I consider this a rather productive activity; it recharges your energy level, so you can be ready for the next chapter of your life.
-Figured out what I want to do for my history project and how I’m going to do it.
-Went to church
-Okay, not sure why I’m adding this to my list. This isn’t something productive I did, but I just needed a fifth thing :)).
As for today, I was very tired. A major factor in this was probably the fact that it was almost as dark as night time all day long, it was raining, and it was freezing cold. Inexcusable act(s) of pure stupidity I committed are as follows:
-wore a light sweater to school.
-went to Starbucks and got myself a large frozen coffee drink before having to go outside in this weather. That made my perception of the temperature, or wind chill, someware in the 5 to 10 degree range.
As for right now, I am just lieing hear, typing this blog post. I have nothing else to do for the rest of the evening, except putting up my laundry. *groans* But then again my mom did have to fold, wash, and dry it all for me, so I have the easy task really :))).
Thanks for reading this post, I hope you enjoyed it. The next time I blog will likely be sometime during the break. But just encase it’s not before Friday:
travel safe, eat lots of turkey, stay warm, enjoy thanksgiving, and have a great week!

how my day went


Today, I got up with my mom and went shopping and got some lunch. After that, I came home and played on the computer, then my dad came home from work and we went to the christmas tree farm and got a tree and rode a few rides. It was yesterland farms in Canton Texas. After that, we went to Dennies and ate dinner, and spent the rest of the night at home, and I fell asleep with my book, then Libby got home from her Friend’s house, and I went to bed. I am posting this entry after my bedtime, so gotta go.

Thanks giving break is here!


Hello you guys, I am happy to say that Thanks Giving break has finally arrived. What do I plan for thanks giving? Well, I just plan to go to my nanna’s house and have some thanks giving foods, and hang out and enjoy the break. My family usually doesn’t do a lot of out-of-town traveling over Thanks Giving and Christmas break, we usually celebrate around here where the southern portion of our family lives.
The question from me, is what are you readers doing for thanks giving?
