Ties

I have a recent obsession over ties.
 
SO MANY FANCY KNOTS

Rollerskates

Posted by Nara , in IRL Mar 18 2013 · 110 views

So, as a "reward" for basically making it through PE this semester, the week before spring break is going to be spent rollerskating. It sounded great at the time but very quickly I learned that I cannot skate for my life.
 
Seriously, if I had a pair of skates glued to my feet and I had to flee from a collapsing bridge, I would probably try to get away, fall to the ground, then fall with the bridge.
 
 
I must've fallen five times or so. Three of those were consecutive, from me trying to get back up.
 
It's going to be a long week. e.e

Busy Busy Busy

I have a perfectly logical explanation for my lack of activity on here.
 
SCHOOL.
 
Unlike most other people, I have my finals in two days as opposed to before Christmas, so teachers are cramming. Which means homework. Add Science Olympiad into that and you've got yourself a negative amount of free time!
 
I think it's taken a toll on my sanity.
 
 
However, that being said, I have almost no time to do anything but school. Which means that, unfortunately, Alpha 0.0.1 of Operation Rally will be pushed back. As for how far back, I can't really say. After finals, I've got an elongated weekend, so maybe some progress will happen there and things will be back on track? I dunno. SciO is at a higher priority than the game right now, but I usually have a lot of downtime during competitions.

I'll get back to work soon, I promise.

Amazing Book Errors

Posted by Nara , in IRL Jan 05 2013 · 317 views

Though I guess it's just an error. But it's a hilarious one and I found it while waiting in line at a store.

If it was socially acceptable to lol in public by yourself, I would've. Because how does this even happen?

PLAN Test

Posted by Nara , in IRL, School Dec 12 2012 · 110 views

Practice ACT, basically.

I got my PLAN back today, and I was mildly disappointed in my score. It is a 25 out of 32. Predicted to score a 27-31 on the ACT.


Now, I'm not exactly sure how good that is, since my school is weird. Almost everyone I know talks about their GPA and scores and academic stuff. And I'm not joking when I say almost everyone. Literally, almost everyone. =P

But yeah. Personally, I kinda wish that the score was higher, but oh well.

Somewhat Disappointing

Posted by Nara , in IRL Dec 08 2012 · 121 views

Maybe I should have a SciO category, because guess what, this entry is about SciO!

Our team had our first invite of the year today. It didn't not start off well. We only won in one event. =( I think that's going to really kill some spirit, but it might be motivational.


Though, on the plus side, we got to see our favorite Physics teacher again. =) He transferred schools at the end of last year and he's working for the invite school now. It was great. He showed us a bunch of stuff, including this random trap door cellar thing in one room; literally, you open up a tile on the floor, and you get to this huge underground room that's filled with random stuff. Apparently, nobody's gone down there for years.

Plus, we couldn't see the end of the wall with a flashlight poking our heads through, so maybe it's a good thing.

Forestry

Posted by Nara , in IRL, School Dec 07 2012 · 91 views

For Science Olympiad, anyway. I am now in another event, Forestry.
 
Basically, you go around identifying leaves and answering questions about them.
 
 
Yes, it's as awful as it sounds. But I've been taking online quizzes and finally got my highest score so far, a 65%! =D
I will have a partner for the actual event, so hopefully she's got her stuff in order. Because this is one of the more ridiculous events.

Christmas Shopping

Posted by Nara , in IRL Dec 06 2012 · 111 views

I am done. Bought gifts for the family and it consumed about a hundred dollars.
  • Witty shirts for my parents and cousins.
  • Plush Peashooter that shoots a pea from Plants v. Zombie for my brother.
  • A plush talking Turret from Portal 2 for my sister.
Though, free shipping! ^-^
 
 
I was hoping to save a lot of money to eventually buy myself a nice new Cannonball Sax, but it's Christmas.

SciO

Posted by Nara , in IRL Dec 01 2012 · 76 views

Science Olympiad. We had a meeting to work on stuff for four hours, and boy did it pay off. Out first competition is next week and I'm more nervous than losing a shiny Cobalion. One of my events is only half done and we have.. seven and a half hours to finish it.


This isn't some measly task, it involves testing. Lots and lots of testing and preparations. Actually, we only have six hours to finish, because one day is a Pep Band day.


D:<


If any of you guys have had experience with SciO, I'd love to hear about it.

School.

Posted by Nara , in IRL, School Nov 29 2012 · 94 views

School has been really tearing me down lately. Plus, all the teachers have decided to have tests and quizzes on the same day. Not that I study, though. It's the homework and the classwork that is really really just... Adding so much dead weight into my head. I think all the teachers need another break.

Anyway, in news of my next two years of High School, I showed my planned schedule to my counselor and asked if it was a good idea for me to fill with AP classes. She said it was fine, but I'm still worried, since I'm taking two of the hardest AP classes offered at the same time, plus marching band, pep band, and Science Olympiad.

Here's hoping I don't work myself to death!


I'll also start posting the Happy Whatever Day stuff earlier in the morning, so it's not two blog entries one after another, like it is now.
