I'm currently rewatching/(watching for the first time since I only remember them beating Zophis) the series, subbed, and gah, I get so attached to Zatch and Kiyo's ally mamodo teams. Yopopo, Danny, and Nya are the ones I got really attached to and absolutely didn't tear up when their books got burned. Not at all. Especially Danny. Also on another note, Naruto is set to end this week. It's been a good run.
Wow, 7 years already? Time flies. BZP has been a huge influence on my life. My writing skills and definitely improved as a direct result, Arceus forbid the data be recovered, because those would be embarrassing posts and topics to see again. =P A lot changes in 7 years. Friends have come and gone, for one reason or another. I wouldn't have changed a thing. It's been a fun 7 years, thanks guys. =)
AP Testing week is in a few hours. Got my first one ever tomorrow, AP Chem, and three more over the next two weeks. ._. Chem and Language/Composition this week, and Music Theory and US History the next. I think the worst part about it is that I feel that school should be ending relatively soon since nearly all of my classes are having the "final" for the class in the next two weeks, but there's still more than a month to go. ahh stress
State's tomorrow and I'm extremely underprepared due to various other school work. First time my school's gone to state in four years, and it's the first time we're in the AA division, so if we're in the top two, we go to Nationals. I don't mean to sound pessimistic, but I don' think we'll be going to Nationals. =P But going to State is great. :> also ARG FOUR+ HOUR LONG SCHOOL BUS RIDE
WE'RE GOING TO STATE! After a three year period of missing state by 1-2 points, we're finally going, placing 4th in our division. =D My results were: 2nd place in Experimental Design 3rd place in Geologic Mapping 3rd place in Entomology 5th place in Write it Do it I was the most decorated member on the team. :> I've got 16 medals this season so far. Most on the team for this year as well. =D but WOOOOOOOOO
Regionals are tomorrow (aka a few hours), and I'm cramming. =P Throwing basically everything I can onto our Entomology cheat sheet and then going to learn about steronets and topographic maps and geologic structures. We have a good chance at going to State this year, having just barely missed it the past two years. Hopefully we go this year. =D
My team did really well! =D As did I! Placed in all my events. First place in Experimental Design First place in Write It Do It Second place in Geologic Mapping Third place in Entomology The WiDi was a great surprise too, having never placed in the past two years that I've been doing it. =D Got another competition next week, hopefully we do just as well. Half the team'll be gone, though. =P
As people have called it, Naracraft is back online. Sorry about the downtime, though I'm sure nobody noticed. =P If anyone new wants to be whitelisted, leave your minecraft name in the comments and I'll get you asap. There's not really any activity on the server but it's there if you want. EDIT: Also, as the 1.7.4 Chicken Jockeys cause tremendous amounts of lag, mobGriefing will be turned off to prevent the zombies from picking up eggs. This will also prevent creepers from breaking blocks an
As in, concert band. =P My concert band was invited to play at the Midwest Clinic, an international conference for band/orchestra. A professor from Cornell University will be conducting our rehearsal as an opportunity to show new methods of teaching to band directors and showing off how to use iPads and Google Glass during rehearsals. She came in during school today to meet us beforehand, and she's hilarious. =P Google Glass doesn't look as silly as I imagined it, it's actually really awesom
How only the smallest connection to the deceased can cause such sadness. Not even part of the family nor the circle of friends, but a member of the circle's family. I didn't even know him personally, nor do I know his name. The same could have most likely been said for him. The overwhelming emotion that hit was unexpected. I've noticed that the colors of the earth become more diluted with each passing hour, but the snow is more pure than ever.
SciO season's in the air. That's Science Olympiad, and yes, I'm in it. =P I've got another invitational tomorrow, third one of the year. This year, my events are Entomology, Geologic Mapping, Experimental Design, and Write It Do It. Entomology is the study of bugs. In the event, a partner and I identify and answer questions about an insect (preserved or in a photograph) within 2-3 minutes, and we rotate around stations. It's been pretty easy so far, placed 1st and 2nd the past two invites. G
Completed the Kalos Dex, as a part of a Living Dex project. First time I've completed a regional Dex ever. Now that that's done, I'm going on to breeding competitively viable Pokemon. Got two IV bred so far, 5/6 IV Phantump with Harvest and a 5IV breeding pair of Aron. Currently breeding for a 5IV female Froakie with Protean, it's a pain. Stupid gender ratio. >.> I did get a fully EV trained Starmie, probably with lackluster IVs, from the GTS though. Also caught a shiny Trevenant from a ho
If anyone still plays. =P I opened a 1.7.2 server, pure survival. If anyone's interested, comment with your Minecraft username and I'll add you to the whitelist. IP: 188.8.131.52 The server should be open 24-7. ^-^ I don't expect that there'll always be people on, but it's there if anyone feels the urge.
After listening to the ending theme for Final Fantasy VI I wanted to (finally) jump in. I've started Final Fantasy I but don't have much progress; just defeated Garland and obtained the lute. Playing the remake for GBA. I'm having a great time getting used to the controls and setup for a game released.. 10 years ago, I think? Almost 10 years now. Anyway, this is my party setup: Level 4 Theif -108 HP/0 MP -Rapier -Leather Armor Level 4 Red Mage -36 HP/31 MP -Rapier -Chain mail Armor
Natural regen = false Tons of fun, Orange Team nearly got a kill. I looked around in creative and found a spawner right near our spawn, Blade, with horse armor and saddles. If we found that, we probably could've gotten a kill. Also, the seed we used was really something else. 4 Jungle Temples, 2 Desert Villages, and about 8 pink sheep in a swamp. Plus, a plains biome with a ton of horses and donkeys. Excited for next time.
Been a while. Got back into the country about a week ago, still having major jet lag, but it's improving. So, like everyone else, I caved and bought Animal Crossing: New Leaf. First Animal Crossing game for me, got it about 5 days ago. Tortimer just invited me to his island, I don't know if I'm going slowly or fast. =P My villagers think I'm stalking them, since I just talked to them all day before I could get a fishing rod. =P I got Cherries as my native fruit, but also have Apples and Permis
You know, it's the little things that you take for granted. Like lights that turn on instantly instead of ten seconds later, or air conditioning that you understand the working of. Or heck, even a fan in the bathroom. Out of the country right now, wish I had a mouse but I left the USB for it at home. :c Not that the WIFI here is particularly strong enough for a lot of things anyway.
Best weekend ever. I feel like I say that a lot. =P But here's what I got for my 16th. My driver's license $120 Sweet new PC A little ceramic salt shaker turtle Plus, entered my first BZPc and won, though under some unexpected circumstances. Either way, it was a lot of fun. c: Also, it was RotR's anniversary. It was a nice little weekend.
This Saturday is Rise of the Rocket's birthday! I think it's the third, but honestly, feels like the RPG opened just a year ago. I was planning on getting a demo of the game out, but with school deciding to carpet bomb us with stuff the last quarter, it doesn't look like that'll happen. :c Marching band starts in 16 days. I'm excited for that. My school is holding an Olympic-style tournament where most of the clubs go head to head in two types of events, athletic and academic . The winning c
