Updates and a little vacation


Hey guys,
Steve here.

Well I’m back home from brokenbow, for now at least.
As a first, I would like you to visit my friend Mason’s website. He programs games for the blind, so here is the website:
http://mtgstudios.nsstudiosweb.com
so I hope you enjoy that. Now, on to the updates.
As you know, I went to brokenbow on Friday and came back last night. At broken bow, we did things similar to last year. We spent Friday, and the majority of Saturday playing on the lake and hanging out. As I’m sure you guys know, I’m not a fan of heights or going under water.
Well, the whole family went to the cliffs to do some jumping yesterday afternoon. After taking my sister up there a couple times(mom was a little nervous at first, but it happened anyway), my dad let me drive his boat. That was especially fun for me because I’m blind and won’t be able to drive a boat when I get older. I did donuts out in the lake, pushing that throttle wide open and turning sharp, rappid and dizzying turns. Not only that, but he also let me drive 10 or 11 people back to the lake shore. You must know that he was right next to me the whole time telling me when to turn or to give it some more gas, but he let me control the boat all by myself. Now even though I will never jump thos high cliffs(well… never say never), I still look forward to that, because that means I will get to drive the boat.

As I’m sure you know, the fun doesn’t last long. Later that evening, we drove home. I’m still glad that we were able to come back to broken bow this year, and I look forward to hopefully coming back next year.

Now, I should probably fill you guys in on the podcast. As you are well aware of, I haven’t posted a release notice, and if you visited the podcast page there was just 7 episodes. My co host Devin has been away from his computer for a while (he told me that he couldn’t because “AFK,” which I assumed meant away from keyboard), and when I called him on Wednesday night he was doing something… I don’t remember what, but I think he got some kind of Casio Keyboard is what he told me… and don’t ask me what that is because I don’t know. I think it is like one of those electric piano keyboards though, because I heard him playing music on it and he’s pretty good). Well, sorry for that very long footnote. I do however hope to do the podcast, and will do it. I have been exploring a game my friend Danny is making called deathmatch, which he wants to be similar to the video game dead space, if you have heard of it. Well once I figure it out I will definately feature it on the late podcast episode.

Before this post gets too long, I’d better wrap it up. I will blog some more in the coming days… remember, I have another vacation, this time to main coming this Tuesday.

Thanks for reading,
Type you later,
Steve.

P.S. File den is still down right now, but they have posted an exciting post on their news facebook page that they are making a new support system and the problem of the maintenence issue will be resolved soon. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

how my day went


Today, I got up, and we ate and went to the lake for the last time. Instead of leaving the lake at dinner time, we left after lunch, and drove home. When me, dad, and libby got home, we unpacked, then ate dinner. After that, I got on my blog. That is all I did today.

how my day went


Today, was the first full day of broken bow. Well, after getting up, the whole family just visited, ate breakfast, then went out to play in the lake. We spent the rest of the day boating, swimming, and hanging out. Just like last night, I wasn’t too happy about getting out of the water for dinner, since that was it for the day.
We ate dinner at our cabbin tonight, and after eating, I posted my journal. That is all I did today.

how my day went


Today, was the day that the three of us (me, my dad, and my sister) drove to broken bow. We also brought my older brother Broadrik, who as you know is about 20.
When we got there, we spent the afternoon having a good ol time plaing in the lake, riding the boat, (yes, dad brought his boat with us.)
Even though I was hungry, I was still sad that we had to get out of the water for dinner and to shower, because that would be the last time we’d be in until tomorrow. Anyway, I got out, and we all drove to our cabbin. note: that other people in dad’s side of the family came to broken bow as well, including his dad, Dutch who is my grandpa.)
After we cleaned up, we had to go to another cabin for the fish fry (dinner.) We spent the remainder of the night hanging out and chatting at that cabin, until about 11, when we came back to ours. Then, I hopped on the computer, had a brief programing tutorial, before posting the journal, and crashing. That is all I did today.
