Well, seeing as everyone now has temporary blogging powers, I might as well try to revive my not-so-successful blog. It died a while ago when my premier membership ran out... But now it's back!
And I'm sure that all of my nonexistent followers will soon be flocking to this page with cries of glee. Yeah, right.
So, since this blog is back from the dead like a zombie, its first post shall be about zombies.
Zombie movies can be disturbing and sickening. The screaming, the terrorizing,
Woo! Christmas vacation! Finally.
Time to kick back, relax, give/recieve gifts, visit family, hang with friends, and toil over an unnecesarily large pile of homework.
Wait... what was that last one? Oh well. We have about 12 days off, so I'm not going to bother starting it until after Christmas.
I probably won't get another blog entry in for a few days, so I'll just say it now:
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy New Year, and Happy any other holiday, religious or not, that you m
I'm going on a Boy Scout camping trip this weekend. The temperature is supposed to be around 30 degrees Farenheit for the next few days, colder at night. Also, we're driving most of the way there, then stopping and hiking the last 10 miles to the camp. There's probably going to be a handful of the new scouts on the trip, who aren't used to these kind of campouts. They whined and complained on the easy trip two months ago, so I'm sure their reaction will be even worse this time... Maybe it will s
Holy cow! It's December already?! These months just keep flying by me. It seems like Halloween was just a few days ago... My sense of time is slipping, maybe I'm getting old. Or maybe I just have too much to do and no time to do it.
Man, what I wouldn't give to be able to pause time...
Ugh. I had a Biology quiz, a Math test, and a European History test today. The first two went relatively well, I think I actually aced the Bio quiz, but the third is a whole different story. It was on the scientific revolution and the enlightenment. We had to know about 10 different philosophers, what they believed, what ideas they made up themselves, which they took from predecessors, who they supported, and be able to be given a quote and know who said it. Somehow I managed to pull off a 68. W
Well, it's been a pretty busy week, and I haven't had any time to write up an entry till now. Actually, that's not entirely true. On Tuesday or Wednesday I had a whole long entry written up and ready to post, but then my internet froze and the computer shut off of its own accord.
So, first order of business... I had a lot of homework this week. Not like that's really unpredictable or anything though, seeing as the same thing happens every week. Sigh... Wait, there was one somewhat different
Has it really been eight years?
Seeing the video today of Mata Nui's rising had me thinking all day about how far Bionicle had come. And also that I've been following this story for so long. To think that so many years ago I was in third grade when it all began. I moved on to Middle School, and the story moved from Mata Nui to Metru Nui. Now here I am in High School, tenth grade, the story is still growing, and I'm still following it. Who would have guessed, 8 years ago, that my obsession, an
Well, tomorrow's Halloween. And I got invited to a party! Woo!
Yeah, I don't usually get invited to go to many parties, so this is a rare occasion for me. Also my first costume party. I'm going as a generic Jedi, since I didn't have time to get together anything fancy, and I already had all the pieces for it scattered throughout my house. Stole the robe from my brother, pulled two lightsabers out of the bowels of my closet, grabbed a pair of brownish pants and a tan shirt, and voila. Instant
Sorry it's been a while, but I've had a lot of homework and other stuff going on this week. I've got a big group project for AP Euro, plus a Bio test that I took today, along with the other usual assortment of smaller homework assignments, family life, and social life. Just finally got a small amount of time to type this up.
And, even though this has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of this blog entry, I'm just going to stop right now and tell you to go and read the new "Brothers in Arm
The Word of the Week has returneth! See? I told you I wouldn't forget. Now on to the main point of this entry...
The Word of the Week is...
Fulmination- A large explosion
If you see any random fulminations around, I didn't do it.
Just a few little updates/notes/random thoughts that no one really cares about but I post here anyway because I have nothing better to talk about that I thought I'd put all into one entry.
Firstly, tomorrow I have to take the PSATs. Great. I'm not really worried about it, since the test doesn't count for anything, but it is a bit of an annoyance. On the plus side, I get to miss all of my morning classes, so I have an extra day to do the homework for those classes.
Next up, I finally built
Random Vocabulary Word of the Day:
Defenestration- The act of throwing something or someone out a window.
Yeah... just a wierd word I found that caught my fancy while doing some Euro homework, and I thought I'd share it with you. Enjoy.
Announcement: From now on, all Blog rule violators shall be defenestrated into the muaka pit.
Look over there,
I just adopted a Muaka to watch over my blog. Any trouble makers or innapropiate comments shall be fed to him. He loves cheeseburgers and playing Mortal Kombat. Please don't feed him though, he's very imaginitive and could easily imagine that your hand is a juicy steak. Oh, and I named him Alpha.
I just got an awesome 3D spinning avatar from Populus's shop. It rocks. Thanks to him again. Now, I was going to put a link here for everyone else to go see his shop, but it's been closed. So I guess not.
Instead, I'm going to share with you an excerpt of my recent life:
Yesterday at school I was eating lunch with a few friends and I happened to accidentally offhandedly mention something about Bionicle (Takatanuva, in fact). Someone turned at this Bionicle name and started talking about B
Walking home from school today I saw a bumper sticker on a car that read "DUMBLEDORE LIVES". Nothing much to say here, other than that it was completely random and made me laugh a little.
P.S.- Snape kills Dumbledore.
I woke up this morning to the sound of a ringing alarm clock. Blargh, Mondays. So I reach over to hit the off button, but it wasn't there. In the dark every side of a square alarm clock looks the same. I could feel an outline where I thought the button was supposed to be, but it was stuck, and didn't even budge. I fumbled and pushed on it for a few minutes, trying desperately to figure out why it wouldn't stop ringing that horrible, high-pitched ring. At last I gave up and instead popped open th
Had an absolutely miserable day yesterday.
First of all, it was Monday. And that means you have to go to school. So I was drinking a glass of milk while sitting on the couch watching the weather for today when the glass slipped out of my hand, fell onto the couch, spilling milk all over it. Sithspawn. Along with that, the glass broke when it hit the couch. Yes, a soft, comfy couch cushion broke a glass cup. If I wasn't cursing to myself as I was desperately trying to clean it up, I might
Well, my first week of school is over. Only a whole bunch more to go.
I'm taking two AP classes this year, European History and Biology. Both classes reqire lots of work. Already had a summary to write, amd a textbook chapter to read for Euro, on top of the long summer assignment. Bio is a bit less homework, but I think that's mainly because we have two periods of it every day, so we get more done in class.
Between the AP classes and the normal classes, I'm going to have a lot of work this
Tomorrow's my last day of summer vacation!
As always, the summer just seemed to fly by this year. So many things I didn't have time to do. No more staying up till one or two in the morning and sleeping till ten. No more eating "breakfast" at noon. No more spending way too much time on the computer. Sigh...
Thusly, I have been trying to prepare myself for the morning school routine by getting up increasingly earlier for the past few days. It's not fun. Today I slept straight throug
My birthday was yesterday. Didn't do much, just slept in and had a small cake after dinner with my family. Other than that it was pretty much just like any other day.
But I did get presents. I recieved Krika, Maxilos and Spinax, some money, and an I.O.U. for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Too bad it doesn't come out 'till mid september. I've been looking forward to that game for a while now, I hope it lives up to expectations.
Anyways, I spent half the morning playing with my new sets. Yes,
Well, tomorrow is my birthday. That makes today my last day of being 14 ever. Oh well. I think I'll celebrate by staying up late tonight and watching one of the original Star Wars movies.
Anyways I was wandering around along the shore today looking for shells and horseshoe crabs when I found a rather strange looking skull kinda thing. At least I think its a skull. I'm not completely sure. It has what appears to be a nasal cavity inside, and a piece that looks like a vertabrae at one end. No t
So, the new Star Wars movie comes out in a few hours. Sigh.
Warning: Senseless rant Ahead!
I am an old school Star Wars fan, and am devoted to the original trilogy. So epic. So brilliant. Great characters and acting. The prequel trilogy, on the other hand, I despise. Well, maybe not despise, but I really dislike them. Just too much CGIing, bad dialougues between characters, poor acting, and Jar Jar Binks. Now along comes Clone Wars. It gets slipped in between episodes 2 and 3 again. In ca
My brother and I went over to our aunt's house today to do some yardwork for her. Mostly weeding, but whatever. The weather was so nice I didn't mind. Not too hot, not too cold, a little breeze, and partially cloudy. Perfect. Plus, we made $25 each for about 3.5 hours of work. More money for my Force Unleashed fund. Yay!
Oh, and we also ripped trees out of the ground by their roots with our bare hands.
Fine, they were tiny little saplings, but it was still pretty tough wh
I watched the opening ceremony of the Olympics last night, and it was stunnning. The artistic portion was amazing in its complexity and perfect choreography.
My favorite part was the field of pillars that went up and down which represented the movable printing blocks. I sat wondering how they were making them move up until the last moment when the lids opened and people popped out! It also mesmerized me because it reminded me of the Akilini field in the Coliseum as seen in Legends of Metru N
