A brief update on my past and future life


Hey guys,
Steve here.

I’ve already made it through over half the school week. I often wonder how such a stressful, strenuous-on-the-brain activity as school can go by so fast. But either way, as I lie hear, suffering from both the lazy bug and a severe case of “I don’t feel like doing anything idis,” I really don’t care about how quick school was today; the fact that I get to chill right now is what matters.
The last two days, I’ve continued to hold myself accountable for that goal I set on Stranded. I have yet to work on it tonight though. Also, speaking of projects and the like, I have a national history day project that I have to do by the 13th of next month. “and I present to you… the world’s worst procrastinator, *drum roll*… Steven D!” That being said because I haven’t started on it. Also to proove that I’m a procrastinator, I have 10 service hours for NJHS due by December 11, and only have 1 down.
Although I dread doing the history project as much as I dread the math STAAR test, I still have to do it anyway because it’s “mandatory” for all pre-AP students in my school district to do it.
Moving on, I had that NJHS thing I told you I would be attending this afternoon. I had to help two of my friends sweep, but it was fun because I knew a lot of people that stayed after school for that and got to talk to them. The only bad thing is that I didn’t get home until around 4:40. Also while on the subject of school (even though this isn’t necessarily about school itself), my sister and I won a poem/drawing contest for my dad’s work. In this contest, children of the people who work for his company would enter a drawing or poem or something like that into the contest to go on a fitness calender. Whoever won would receive a $50 visa gift card and a flash light. Both my sister and I won this contest, but I don’t have the poems we wrote to put on the blog. Sorry about that.
As far as future life goes, I can’t say anything concerning what will happen tomorrow, but hopefully the carpet upstairs will be put in on Friday. I’m ready for things to return to normal. On Saturday and Sunday, since I don’t have goal ball, I honestly have no clue what I will do. Next week will only bring two days of school; both expected to be very cold. We get out for Thanksgiving break Tuesday, with our first full day off Wednesday. The week after the break, I have an orchestra concert on December 3rd. My sister also has one the same time on the same day but at different schools, so we’ll have to work something out. If I am right, I think I have a choir concert the week after the orchestra concert, and my national history day project is due that same week. Also, Christmas break starts the next week (on December 20), and Christmas is the week after that. So, to make things short, I have something going on every week for the rest of 2013.
I guess that about sums up life, and this blog post for that matter.

P.s. I’m still addicted to Hogwarts Live. Tell me, is it a problem that I have jumped up 11 levels since I posted the last update?

My first post with windows live writer, (ignore the last email because it wasn’t me)


Hey you guys,
Steve here.

This is my first post with windows live writer–can’t believe it!

So, I recently downloaded a cool application on my computer called windows live writer. This lets you hook up to your blog or create a windows live blog and write to it, create pages, and lots of cool stuff like that. I heard this program is also good for blogging on the go, but then again so is word press.com itself.
There is one good thing to this however; it allows spell check, which for blogs like mine can be pretty useful.
While I’m on this post, let me give you a little life/podcast update:

First of all, I learned this before last post, but forgot about it. I am going to the Calendar lake house with my papa Dutch and Nana, and part of that side of the family for 4th of July. I don’t know what we are going to be doing there, but I will blog and talk about it. On another note, though related to what I just said, my friend Devon might be joining us. This isn’t the computer geek devin whom I created the website for last week and went to tsb, but a different one who plays goal ball with me. Since goal ball season is over, I don’t get to see him much, but hopefully he can come to the lake house with us.
We are going on Thursday after picking Libby up from Austin (can we leave that part out? JK). We should then get there after about 4, and I don’t know what we’ll do for the remainder of the day and Friday. We will be returning home on Friday evening.

As far as the weather goes, let’s hope that it doesn’t storm. There is a small chance of storms Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I don’t care if it storms Saturday (sorry for the people that have plans, I care if those get rained out). If it rains July 7, I won’t have to worry–I’ll be on my way to camp then.
On another note, I found another blog you should visit: http://www.camaro76.wordpress.com, the website of a friend of mine named Wyatt Rose. Since I don’t know if he wants strangers talking to him, I will not disclose any contact info–I’ll leave that up to him.

On one last note, sorry to those people who received email notification about a “temporary” post, that was when I set up windows live writer, and it did a test post. Sorry!

podcast and updates


Hello guys,
steve here again.
Before I start the post, I would like to welcome my 6 latest followers! Thanks guys!
I’ve released my podcast today!
As you probably know, I didn’t release my podcast last night. For one, I just got home from tsb, and for 2 the guest (I just planned for him to be in the cast) wasn’t available. So, I posted it today. Another thing, I posted episode 4, the one from june first. I didn’t know I actually had a working version, so I will talk about my latest episode as if it was episode 4, all though it really wasn’t. I hope you enjoy the podcasts!
On another note, here is some stuff I learned at tsb at the space weather class:
1. Did you know that during august 1972, during the apollo space mission, a huge solar storm hit. If those people had been on the moon at the time, they would’ve died of radiation poison.
2. Did you know that we had a solar event Thursday night, and if you were in alaska you would’ve seen the green glow?
3. did you know that light travels at 186000 miles per second which is also 669600000 miles per hour!
4. Did you know that all though the earth spins at 1000 miles per hour at the equator, it spins at 866 miles per hour in austin texas?
5. Did you know that in the event of a solar flair, it can cause a electric blackout on earth’s power grids?
6. Did you know that the surface temperature of the sun is only 6000 degrees, but the core is 14 milion?
7. Did you know that on April 13, 2029, a huge asteroid will come within 33000 miles of earth.
8. Did you know that some of the static noise we here on a shortwave radio is the sun and Jupiter?
9. Did you know that the waves of fm radio go through the ionosphere, and that we can only here them up to 100 miles away?
10. AM radio waves bounce off the ionosphere, and especially at night, we can here them from real far away.
11. Did you know that when the dinosaur killing asteroid sent so much dust into orbit around the earth, that it caused a period of over a year with absolutely no light, stopping all photosynthesis and vegetation growth, also killing half the species on earth back then?
Those are just some of the intresting facts I learned about in the space program.
On another note, if you want to know about Thursday and friday for me, we went to the movies on thursday night, and I sat by Devin and watched the man of steel, Superman.
On friday, the drive home ended up taking over 3.5 hours!
Finally, on a final note, I must tell you all the things we made this week at space weather camp in austin.
1. a paper sundile
2. we took a picture of the sun with sunspots and raised it up so I could feel it.
3. We made a read out chart from the supersid solar antenna, which detected the solar event from Thursday night. I even got to feel the read out!

Well, I hope this post was both intresting, informing, and fun for you to read!

astonishing monthly wrap up plus life update


Hey guys,
steve again.

May 2013 has been the best month by far for views. In this post, I am going to tell you about that, a true prediction, and some life updates. Please enjoy.

Starting with the blog, I am going to tell you some stats I’ve collected as of this morning at 9:20 AM.
First of all, try and take a guess about how many views there were this month alone. This little 31 day period!

If you guessed it right, you are a real lucky person and should go and try for the lottery. The number of views for this month, was 511! Also, there is an average of 17 views per day this month, by far the highest ever seen on the blog. I also recieved 15 followers since April 21. I think the third year has started with a bang! So, keep viewing and showing your loyalty, and I will certainly keep posting.

Now, here is the prediction that came true. If you click the link below, it will take you to the blog post I made in april predicting a tornado outbreak soon because of the temperature jumps.
post where I discuss my hunch about a tornado outbreak coming, and the next few links lead to tornado news about an outbreak that hit.
Also, the post I just linked to about the prediction was April 15, and the outbreak occured on May 15! What in the world?!
Here are the posts:

post 3

There are more posts about that from may 16.

–Life–

On the life note, Things have been running smoothely. On Tuesday night, me and my mom ordered a battery for my personal computer, and while we were on the site we saw an ac adapter for $9.69. I bought the current charger I have for $64, however if we’d just looked on amazon, we could’ve got both the battery and ac adapter for $37.58. I am okay with the charger I have, since it can charge multiple computers and it works fine.
On another note, school is almost out. I remember May 10’s post, blognews and updates or something like that, where I talked about school being 27 days from being over. Now, there are 6 days. Today is the last friday of the whole entire school year, and I bet in 168 hours I will have just gotten up on my first day of Summer vacation. I can’t wait!
Besides that, me, my family, and cat have been doing pretty good. I remember telling you about swamp, the first person shooter I’ve grown addicted to. In fact, the game says I’ve put in over 13 hours and 29 minutes, and I have only had the game for 3 days. Woe… I need to focus more on stranded part 2 then that game. I PROMICE I will work on it this weekend, and like I said before have it on the sight on the 8th. Don’t worry, you will love this game! I will make sure of it!!!

–future life–

I am glad to tell you another thing about the upcoming weekend (besides working on stranded). It is supposed to storm again! I mean large hail, damaging winds, lightning, and heavy rain! So do you know what that means? That means I will hopefully be able to treat you with another storm recording! Also remember that you can visit the natural event recordings page fore a bunch of recordings like the one I want to make tomorrow. It has Wednesday night’s storm, easter storm, plus several tracks I’ve made to sound like awesome storms!

Since I’ve got us going on the future, I must say we won’t be doing a whole bunch of work at school. Monday is the last full school day, Tuesday is an all day tiger bash thing where we’ll get to hang out, socialise, play games and stuff like that. Wednesday we get out at 12:15, and as well as Thursday. Thursday when we get out at 12:15, we have an 80 day (11 week 3 day) break to look forward to. I can’t wait for that!

Well, as a wrap up, I have enjoyed talking to you on this rather long and information filled post. I also would like to thank the 15 new followers this month and late last month, and the people who got the blog 511 views this month alone. You guys enspire me to keep posting and building this site, and me and you visiters worked as a team to get the site as far is it is today–and I’m sure it will keep getting bigger in the future!

updates and milestones


Hello you guys,

Steve again.

I have some important updates to tell you about today.
First of all, the number of views on this blog has officially reached, you guessed it, 5000! That is quite a big milestone for the blog! We are half way to the 5 digit numbers! Since it took about 729 days to reach this number of views, I expect that it will take upto 1300 views (I may be wrong, but who cares) to reach 10000. I just want to thank you viewers for getting this blog so far and paying attention to my content.

Another thing is that I will be creating a photos page soon, gathering all the pictures in my blog and adding them to separate categories, similar to the audio page. Also, I will display the latest image right below the name of the category. Please click on this button thingie every morning until it works. I will tell you that it might take until either tomorrow to get it up and running, so please be patient.

Now, I will tell you about my recent days.

On saturday, I went to my friend’s birthday party. It was a horse back riding party, which turned out to be pretty fun! I will have the pictures posted on this post and hopefully the photos page by friday, so check back then.
After the hourse back riding part, we got some ice cream from Derry Queen (I got a hot fudge milkshake), and my friend opened his present that I got him.

After that party, Saturday night just turned into a relaxed chill kind of night. My dad baught me and my sister some freekishly awesome speakers for our phones and book readers, so me and libby watched stormbreaker, an Alex Rider movie on them.

Sunday was a pretty fun day as well. So, there is this relatively new goalball coach that also helps Libby studie for her AP test. She is pretty funny, and me, libby, and her like to tell jokes. Her name is Shena, but Libby calles her Coach because she was trying to teach Libby who is quite an experienced player (and she is pretty new) how to throw. This brought out the name Coach, and though this occured several weeks or months ago, Libby still uses the name. Well, I went with Libby and Coach to study, after which we ate at some Mexican food restaurant and I got chicken fingers. Then, we got some yogert from this yogert place. I ended up getting cake batter yogert with angel food cake on top.

After that, Coach had to take us home, after which the routine returned to normal.
Yesterday was like any old munday, not much to talk about.
So far, today has been pretty good, I guess if you’d call sitting in reading class an awesome experience.

Well, I guess that wraps up this post for today. Once again, expect those photos to be on that page, and the hourse riding photos by Friday or Saturday hopefully.
