Frequent Blog Update #3… an extremely awesome tech discovery and Latest Life happenings of Steven D


Hey you guys,

Steve Here.

How did you like that blog post title? I hope you liked it a lot.

As my post said, I discovered an extremely awesome thing about my computer. It’s called windows speech recognition macros. Skipping all the techie stuff that is libel to turn non-techie followers and readers away from my blog, I’ll just tell you what the thing does in English terms.
Well, as you know, speech recognition itself will let you control your computer with your voice. Speech recognition macros is a way to enhance speech recognition so that you can make custom commands and use them to your liking. For example, I made my computer have a conversation with me, and best of all I recorded it. You can listen to it… non-techie people; there is no tech talk in this recording. So, here you go:

I hope you enjoy!

Now, switching topics, Let me tell you about my recent life happenings.
On Sunday, I had church. It was your average Sunday school, and service. Except one thing: we were like the “old people class at Sunday school” as quoted by some one at the church. Here we were, a whole bunch of teenagers chilling and drinking coffee.
Besides that, I also got my robot reference manual finished on Sunday, and Libby’s 5 friends left (In case I didn’t mention it in Saturday’s post my sister had friends over for a slumber party; it being her birthday weekend and all).
I didn’t do much else on Sunday, besides crashing for a bit, and Just hanging out really.
Yesterday, was when I found out that my computer could talk back to me. I went from not even knowing it could talk back to me (barely even knowing about speech recognition) at 9 in the morning to having sophisticated conversations with the machine. Please lord, whatever you do, don’t let me be the weird dude sitting in his office and having 5 hour long conversations with his computer about how the registry was acting up or how mad he got when his cat bit him or something. 🙂
So yeah, that is what I was doing on my free time Yesterday. I also had to get a hair cut, and a nice refreshing bottle of chocolate milk, but you know that’s a little beside the point.
As far as today goes, it was yet another school day. There was nothing much to talk about today.
Tomorrow, we’re supposed to get lots and lots of awesome rain. I can’t wait for that. Not only because we need that rain, but also because I like the sounds of rain. Here’s a little catchy poem I wrote about the forecast:

The forecast calls for rain,
this should help you grow your grain.
Rain is good for my brain,
though not for traveling by plain.
I like the pattering against my window pain,
but the dreary days drive me insane
Hope you enjoy my nice little forecast there…
Moving on, my mom’s cousin is coming to visit on Thursday, and I believe she’s staying for the weekend. We’re having a family get together on Sunday, partly because Libby’s birthday and the fact that my mom’s cousin will be here.
Also, I still have that upcoming orchestra concert, which my sister and dad will be missing because they’re flying to Florida for a goal ball tournament. Unlike mine, she gets to miss 2 or 3 days of school. Erg… why is she so lucky!
Although I kind of have to admit I’d rather go to school and get to attend my orchestra concert than miss two days and fail such an easy class.
Well, I guess that about wraps up today’s post. Talk to you soon.

Thanks for reading,
type you later,
Steve.

how my day went


Today, I got up and went to school like normal. Then, I came home, hung out and relaxed with the cat, ate a snack, then did homework. After my homework, I played on the computer and relaxed until dinner, before hanging with mom and sister and then playing on the computer some more (creating a project that I don’t want anyone to know about, so hopefully you don’t know what that link above will go to.
Well, I worked on that project until I got on this blog, and am now posting the journal. That is all I did today.

how my day went


Today, I got up and went to school like normal. Then, I had to stay at home alone because my mom was picking my sister up from Auston, and my dad had a layover at work. I occupied the time my mom was gone by doing a social studies assignment. When she and my sister got home, I contenued to work on the assignment until it was completely done, played jenga for a while, then ate some beaf stue for dinner. After dinner, I just hung out with my mom for a while because Libby was asleep. Then, I ate a snack, and posted my journal entry. That is all I did today.

how my day went, warning, this won’t be long and descriptiv, because there wasn’t much to talk about


Today, I just pretty much ate, and played on the computer. There were times when I’de relax and listen to an audio book, and hang out with my sister. Also, I spent some time playing with the cat, and talking on the phone.

how my day went


I am posting this early because you know how my sister flew to a torniment, well me and my mom have to pick her up. So, by the time I get home, it will be around 11:00, and I won’t have time to blog. So, I am at my mom’s work, and here is what I did.
Today, I got up and played on the computer. Then, I went upstairs, almost threw up, then ate breakfast. I knew it was stupid, but that is what I did. Well, I brailled a schedule, (a list of things to do) so I wouldn’t be board. I did that for an hour, played the wii, then got on the computer. Then, I played with the dogs until lunch, then played on the computer until my dad got up. After a while, I got dressed, and went to my mom’s work. For the last few hours, I have been playing on the computer and sleeping. That is all I did. Besides, if you wonder why I have been on the computer for so long for the past week, it’s because I’ve been playing hogwarts live, and it’s adicting.
