Returning

Alright. I know that I haven’t posted anything this entire school year. And for that, I am deeply sorry. I doubt I really have many readers that I will be apologizing to, but I am not really apologizing to them. I’m apologizing to me. I promised myself that I would be updating this blog at least semi-frequently. And this entire year, I could tell there was thing off. In not writing, I just didn’t feel right. So I will be counter-acting that now. More

My Day at PAX

Alright, so Daniel and I got tickets to PAX Prime a few months ago. They were already sold out of three day passes and we did what we could. So we got tickets for Friday (yesterday). We arrived in Seattle Thursday evening and just planned out our trip and enjoyed a small little vacation. It was also difficult because we were wanting to get to bed early so we could wake up and get to PAX as soon as we can. But of course we ended up socializing with my friend online till past midnight. It was worth though. More

Holy Delays Batman! I’m behind!

Yeah, so apparently I have neglected to update this since early May…. It is now late August. I haven’t put off posting because nothing interesting has happened, I have actually been very busy. For a while I didn’t have the free time to update. And then when I did I completely forgot. I’ll give a quick over view by month as a quick way to catch up.

-May-

The only thing I really remmeber about May is the Tae Kwon Do friendship tournament. Overall, I didn’t do too well. I was in two events, Board Breaking and Forms. My board breaks were terrible, I had so much trouble breaking them. I watched the video of my performance and talked to people about it. I know what I did wrong all of them. Next time will be better. My form was fine, the people I was competing against were just better that day and that is a loss I’ll gladly take.

Nothing else that interesting happened in the month of May. Still in school, preparing for finals… I’ll leave it be and get on to the more interesting months. More

Operation Frosty

Today started out being nothing out of the ordinary. It wasn’t until evening fell when things commenced.

I was invited with a bunch of people to go see The Avengers. I, having nothing better to do all day, went. Totally worth it, and not just because it was the best movie I’ve seen in a long time. We all met up at the theater and got our tickets. This particular theater apparently will not let you enter the actual auditorium until 10 minutes prior to the start time on the ticket. I just think that’s silly. Anyway, we got in our seats and we were very entertained how our group filled exactly one row. We can be easily amused when it comes to these things. More

Pottermore

So Pottermore finally has been released to the public. I signed up last night. It’s not quite what I was expecting. I thought it was going to be an online environment of Hogwarts where me and everyone else online would cast spells and brew potions. Instead most of it was much closer to us going thru the Harry Potter books once again.

And there is no reason that it should have taken so long to be released. Exploring each scene is incredibly basic stuff. You can zoom in and out (which just sets different things in focus) and then collect stuff for your trunk of take a closer look at things.  The closer look is very nice, it is JK Rowling sort of talking about what she was thinking when she was writing. Like she explained why the Dursleys lived on Privet drive in Little Whinging or the Original 40. I didn’t really read many of those, I’ll go back and read all them later. More

RetroMeme

Hey guys. I’ve been wanting to post this for a while, and as I’m typing I realize that my list of things I wanted to talk about I completely forgot except for one. And I just remmebered two more so let’s go!

So I had this idea a while back, it’s a website. I’d call it retromeme.com. The idea is that it has old retired memes that used to be all the rage. I’m not sure how old something must be for it to be retro… Arrow to the knee might be too young, but if I was to go on today I would see stuff like, “but I have good news. I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico.” It’d be a great form of nostalgia just to see what we thought was funny way back when. Or to laugh at how stupid we were for laughing at other things.

And I baked bread yesterday! I grew up baking. Not as much as my sister, but I kind of did. I started by helping her or one of my parents bake, and eventually I would just start doing my own thing. But I only really knew how to make cookies and cakes. That was the stuff that I helped them make. So then my sister sent me a bread recipe that she got in culinary school and I tried it. It is a lot more time consuming than I thought. With cakes you can probably go from start to finish in less than an hour. Bread is not like that at all. You kind of need to work on it all day a bit. Now I really see why bakers have to start work so early. I’m gonna try again some other time. Not sure when….

And I had Tae Kwon Do last night. I have it three times a week (ideally, sometimes I miss a day or two). I have no idea but after I got home my left leg got very sore when I picked it up. It still is. I have no idea how that happened. It’s not that bad at all, I’ve had much worse in the past. I just felt like complaing for a second.

And I have an idea for the novel I’m going to write! Daniel has been helping me brainstorm certain things. I’m probably going to do something like last week only slightly tweaked. Instead of spending the whole day writing, I’m going to spend the whole day working on my book. So at this point I will be planning and outline. Hope it goes better this time!

Spring term is here

Spring term of classes have started. I say that and we are almost thru with the first week. Yeah, I’m on time. I have no idea how this term will go. Now I’m just trying to get classes that I can survive with a bit of free time in. I want to just spend as much time writing as I can, which I simply think is fantastic as less than a month ago I wasn’t considering being an author because I wasn’t motivated enough to just sit down and write for hours on end. And now that is exactly what I want! I can now actually see myself being an author. The only problem is school is sucking up all of my time in such a way that makes it difficult for me to write when I want to. This Saturday I’m going to try and see what it’d be like if I did choose writing as a career. I’m going to wake up and work all day. I’ll treat it as a 9-5 job. See where I get. Anyone have any suggestions for what I should write?

So anyway, my classes this term seem potentially fun. Thankfully almost all of my classes I have a friend in. That just doesn’t seem to happen to me when I sign up for classes. I then always have to make new friends and then we then never talk when the term is over. Then I’m kind of depressed when I think about it, but I survive as I still have my close friends. That’s what truly matters in the long run. Not the friendly people you pass, but the friends you take with you.

Now, I don’t know where you guys are all from, but we’ve been having some really wacky weather here. Wackier than normal. Yesterday it was alternating between sunny and hailing all day. I left my house for Tai Chi and it was hailing. When I get there it is just raining. After class it’s sunny all the way to my theater class. I got a pleasant surprise when I arrived at that building. There was a flower bush and I saw a couple hummingbirds fluttering around it. I’ve seen them before, but never that close. I could see all the colors of its feathers, the blur of its wings. Beautiful birds they are. Easily one of my favorites. I don’t know what my favorite bird is though… what’s yours?

There were a couple things that I was wanting to post in this but I can’t seem to remember them at the moment. Oh well, what are you gonna do? I guess that’s just a reason for me to do another post again soon!
