    • Here's a Quicky

      I don't really feel like typing a lol right now, so here's a quick journal to hold over till next weekend.
      As fast as my sister moved in she moved back out, but she is expecting to be back here in less than a year, so she left somethings here. Other than that, track starting and a snow day on Tuesday, last week was pretty much a normal week. Well, also that there was a dance Friday night that I went to. Saturday I was pretty bored and ended up installing Fedora Core 4 on my Linux machine since 3 didn't work and the version of Red Hat that I had was getting old. That was only after putting another, very small, hard drive in it just for the fun of it and I'm probably going to put another small one in there later just for kicks.

    • It was another week

      13 years ago

      For the most part this past week has just been another week. Other than last night that it. A friend and I went over to my girlfriends house last night to watch a couple of movies. The movies were chick-flicks so they weren't anything amazing, but they were okay. What made the night worth it was having her cuddled up with me and almost falling asleep (the falling asleep part was actaully really funny). The funnest part was of the night was her dad's idea though. I had just come out of the bathroom and was about to go back downstairs when her dad told me to pick up the phone and call their house since it was about the time that I usually call anyway. Well I had a better idea, I pulled out me cellphone and called on that. It may not seems that funny right now, but it was funny at the time.

      On a different note, what ever my sister had going on in the eastern U.P. didn't work out for her, so she's living with us as of today. This is an interesting turn of events and will produce an interesting living situation now that I have to get used to living with her all over again. Also, track starts Monday so I may be on a little less than usual during the week as of then. One thing that I must say though that is completely off topic, my dad can't get my mom to send money to help feed me, but if I want to buy something for what ever reason and I tell her about it, she'll send me money.

    • Wow... too much in too little time

      Well I went skiing yesterday, if that's what you call if when your wearing ski skate/snow blades or what ever they are called. Besides the fact that the felt weird at first, they are extremely hazardous to my physical health. I fall a lot more with them on for some reason. One of the times I can't figure out what happened and the pther two were just stupid of me. The two that were stupid of me involves a rail, but at least the second time I didn't hit both my arms and my hip on it. To put it all in a nut shell: I'm sore, bruised, and I think I messed my right knee up a little. Then I had boshimi336 and his girlfriend, Rachael (not Science Olympiad Rachael), over for some old RTS LANing. We played Age of Empires 2 and StarCraft, well after we got them working we played them. There was only two games played last night, and then two today and some where in there we got some sleep, I don't know how much though. How ever much it was, after everything that I did yesterday, it wasn't enough. I still have a large amount of work to get done for school tomorrow too.

    • Four day weekend!

      13 years ago

      Well today at 3 whatever a 4 day weekend for me started, so I'll write one of these now. Plus, I'm waiting for something to finish downloading and I can't seem to get a hold of my girlfriend. Yes I have a girlfriend now, it was what happened last Thursday that made last week different from any other week. I wanted to see if her and me would act any different than before and if so to see if anyone would notice, that's why I didn't say anything about it before. But apparently we didn't do anything different enough to be noticed. (Yes boshimi, I didn't make it to the end of the year like you predicted really early in the school year, but I lasted a lot longer than you thought I would, but don't tell anyone I want to see how long it takes them to see her and me holding hands.) Anyway, I am finally going to get a new prescription for my contacts, I've had the same one for about 3 or 4 years and I'm getting glasses too so I don't have to wear my contacts all the time. Then Friday I'm going to go skiing again, then do something else after that, but I'm not completely sure what it is. Then Saturday night boshimi is coming over and we are going to play a little Age of Empires 2 against each other, just for the heck of it. It should prove to be an interesting four days off.

      Oh yeah, DharkXero, something that was pointed out to me. All of the really good Halo 2 players that I know around here don't have XBox live, nor do they have a place to go where some one does have XBox live, so I don't think we would be able to set a game up.

    • Another week gone by

      Well since I didn't include it in my last journal I'll talk about what I did last Saturday. That was basically that a friend of mine was having her birthday party because she had turned 17 earlier that week. It ended up just being 5 people, including her, eating pizza at her house, then going to NMU to watch "Rent". (There is some group that shows movies there every weekend.) I ended up sitting next to her at the movie and... well I'll admit, I almost ended my attempt to stay single for the school year. I'll I would have had to do and would have done would be to hold her hand. I was close to doing it, but I didn't. After that night, untill Thursday, the week was pretty much like any other week this year. If I remember I'll get into what happened Thursday that ended that every other week thing at a later date. On another note, the scrambler car for Science Olympiad had been almost completely rebuilt. There are just a few more things that we have to do to it before it's done. Back to events this week, today boshimi336 had a small Halo 2 party at his house. Other than the fact that the guys that were supposed to bring food didn't bring any, it was a pretty good party.

    • Cold Fingers

      13 years ago

      Since last Saturday things have been going pretty slow. Nothing worth talking about happened until today. First of what happened today that is worth saying is that I had another snow day. That's the second one this year and that's just not normal for where I live, even though our average yearly snowfall is over 200 inches. So that means I had to shovel, but luckly one of my neighbors came over with a snow blower and cleared my driveway out for me. Then around 5:30 I went to help light candles along a small part of a trail that dog sleds were taking for this annual short dog sled race. Well the temperatures today have been at the most 10 with some really bad winds so it was pretty cold out there and even with my ski gloves on my fingers got really cold, really fast. Then after all of the sleds had left, I had to pick the candles back up. By this time the sun had been down for about an hour, so it was somewhere in the negatives, with wind chill. After being outside for not but probably 10 minutes I was lossing the abilitly fully using my fingers. Lets just say that even now, about an hour after I got my hands warmed up, my fingers are still tingling a little. Yeah, the weather sucked, but oh well it was interesting.

    • WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!

      I just got back from the regional Science Olympiad contest today and we won third overall so we are going to the state competition in April. I am so freaking happy about it. Not only that, I got a third place medal in Chemistry Lab and Fermi, and a first place medal in the Forensics Lab. I may have gotten a little behind on some of my homework because this past week I was staying after school till about 6 every day but, it was well worth it. (Our scrambler car didn't work like it was supposed to, but we have a second chance to make it work now.) I was hoping that at the least I would get a medal for the Chemisrty Lab since I'm in AP Chemisrty, but I never imagined that I would get one in three of the events I was in, plus the one for overall. I'm going to be in shock for a couple of days, plus I'm also going to be in euphoria about it for a few days too. I'm at a point where I'm out of words to say.

    • Fun day

      I had a fun day. I was skiing most of the day and only actaully hurt myself twice. First time I hit a very small tree, don't ask., and I ended up twisting my right ankle and knee in a very weird way. So they're giving me a few minor problems right now, but I can still walk so it's all good. The other time I was trying to go over a jump and wait for a friend on the back side to see if he would make it or not, problem was there wasn't a back side and I just kind of fell because I was going pretty slow. I ended up sliding face first on the snow some how and pretty well jarred my entire body along with taking a little skin off the bridge of my nose. It hurt, but it was still worth it.

    • This Week has been different.

      Well almost every day in school this week sucsked, but once school ended it improved a lot. There is just something about Science Olympiad that puts me in a good mood. Speaking of that, we almost have the scrambler car ready for the regional competition next Saturday. As for tomorrow, students have no school because of something the teachers have to go through, so I'm going skiing with a bunch of people from school.
      On a different note, my dad basically overhauled our finances and found a way to save us $60 a month and I ended up with a cell phone out of it. But he forgot to do a few things and he really wanted to get some small bills paid off, so I don't know if we'll have the money for the parts I need for me computer. He made an honest mistake and I'm not mad about it, but he's kicking his own ass over it. Knowing him though, he'll still find a way to get me the parts.

      Edit: I just noticed that I have been part of this site for at least a year now.

    • ...I can't think of a title again...

      This past week has been slightly interesting, but nothing much happened. The first thing that comes to mind that is worth talking about is that our scrambler car for Science Olympiad is almost ready for the regonals Feb, 11. I'm going to be spending a lot of time at the school after school the next two weeks to get ready for it. Also it was Winter Homecoming week, but there wasn't much school spirit this week and I went to the dance. It was ok, parts of it could have been better though.

      My dad already filed his taxes and we're not getting back as much as we thought, but he's still going to get me what I need to get both of these computer up and running the way I want them. So I'll hopefully get those ordered really soon.
