So I renewed my membership for a month a day or two ago, just to play around. I go to good ol' World 2 to sell my Santa Hat, I'm in a trade with some other guy, he denies it, and then my chrome browser crashed. I log back in, and my Santa Hat is gone! Anyone know what happened?
So it's been a long summer/early fall since I've retired.
Starting out in June, two of my good friends and I led the NYLT (national youth leadership training) for about two weeks for my council. I had a two week break after that, but lacked internet for the most part, being out of town and constantly staying at friend's houses. Later in the summer, I went to the National Jamboree for Boy Scouts. The BSA celebrated 100 years. It was a fun experience, especially because I knew how to get through the week based on the last jamboree. School started shortly after that and I still had a half-week camp where I, along with about 40 other counselors led a group of 5-6 seventh graders around Camp Tecumseh. Basically, it was school still, but in nature. As a senior in high school, it was my last year being able to be a counselor.
And now I have quite a bit of free time. My soccer team's last game is tomorrow, but we are about to start indoor soccer again. I started merchanting in RS a few weeks ago, logging on every few days to update my GE offers. I checked the forums every once in a while this summer, but now I'm back to my old routine here, checking multiple times per day haha.
Oh, and I've been accepted to Indiana University so far, but haven't applied to anywhere else yet. I'll probably apply to University of Southern California, Miami University (in Ohio), and maybe Loyola University in Chicago. Not completely sure what I want to major in, but most likely something with computers.
With AP tests out of the way, I only really have finals in four classes.
Calc: I have a final on Tuesday, open ended, but I know how to do most of the problems, so it should be fine.
Spanish: I have my oral on Wednesday, but Spanish is easy so I can just wing that if I have to.
Everything else: (US History and Computer Programming II) is next week, so I'm set.
I recently rented a seedbox for a month, just to see how fast they really are. It's amazing. I've downloaded some new albums off of a completely legal torrent site of course (like http://www.clearbits.net/) just to test. It's not really a good investment, but I do get almost immediate satisfaction of anything I download. :mad:
This upcoming weekend, I invited my soccer team to my lake house. It's going to be an epic party, even if the water is only 60 degrees Fahrenheit. I can't wait... ten guys just bro-ing it out in one house for an entire weekend.
Best school day in a while (except for the three essays in two hours part, that was just annoying). But after the AP Literature and Composition test, I still had two hours until I had to be back at school. My friends and I ended up heading out to Subway for lunch and then to Ritters for ice cream. I showed up for the start of sixth period, where my class just watched a movie the entire time. :glasses: Then for seventh period, I have AP Psychology, which is really easy. I'm actually looking forward to that AP test next Tuesday.
Many moons ago in a small camp on the side of a mountain, a camper named Steve was sitting by his fire. In these mountains, he knew that moose roamed free and wild. He was on a mission from the Moose Lord to find his son. So Steve was not just out to find any moose, he was out to find the Moose Lord’s son. He just happened to have the ability of muffin magic. The muffin magic gave him the ability to poof from thin air any size muffin in any shape or flavor. So after a few evenings of sitting around the fire, Steve moved on to the next camp. While he was hiking he would practice his muffin magic and feed the small rabbits and squirrels from the side of the trail. The squirrels like the nut muffins the best and the rabbits like the carrot muffins. As he continued walking, Steve started to hear big calls and didn’t know what they were. To be honest Steve had never seen a live moose before. He had just seen pictures of them and heard people talk of them. When Steve reached the arrival of his second spot to camp to the night he thought it might be a good place to see a moose since there were wild meadows in the distance. It turns out this meadow was party central for the moose. When Steve was about to go to bed, he heard some big moose partying in the distance. So he snuck up on them during the night. It turns out they like to really party. They were playing “poke the buffalo with the antler” and were illegally consuming goat blood. This party got to be too loud so mother earth came to arrest them. Two moose were arrested and thrown into the valley overnight. Steve was not able to find the Moose Lord’s son since he was a good moose and did not party. In the morning, Steve went on his way so he could sleep the next night without being disturbed. So on his way he went, on his trip to the next camp, he ran into a bear. Now Steve has never seen a bear before so he was quite intrigued by the 450 pound ferocious beast. He sorta just stood there with a dumb founded face and stared at the bear. He then came to the quick conclusion of the fact that this bear could easily kill him. So in fright, Steve ran as fast as he could away from the bear. As he was running, he remembered that he had his muffin magic. So Steve started throwing large, rock-hard, burnt muffins at the bear. Steve thought this would solve his bear problems, but then realized that the bear was just getting mad at him. So Steve started throwing good tasting gigantic muffins at him. He realized that this was working. The bear stopped to eat the muffins and Steve was able to get away. After Steve found his last camp he was relieved that he knew he would see the moose at this place. There was a lovely meadow with the most beautiful sunset that Mrs. Masters thought was the coolest thing ever. So Steve settled down by the camp fire for the night. Just as he was about to go to sleep, a moose walked up and tapped him on the shoulder. He knew that this moose was the one he was looking for since it had a golden halo on top of his antlers. He then mustered up his muffin magic and poofed up a big tasty muffin. The moose ate it up in one big bite! After the first one, he asked for another and another. As Steve started to walk away, the moose took one giant sniff and smelled more muffins. With every sniff of a muffin the moose’s nose got a little bit bigger. Since Steve’s muffins were the best in the land, the moose kept growing bigger to fight off the bears from getting their muffins. Antlers on moose are one of the most helpful adaptive features they have. Their antlers are so they can carry their muffins with them.
If you have Firefox 3.6 and right click on an image, is there still a properties option? Or do you have to click View Image Info to get the images size? I want to make sure it's not some weird extension I have on hiding the button.
THE FACEBOOK TRICK: press up,up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Enter key, then right click then press up and down and magic crcles will appear. the only way to get rid of them are to log off or refresh the page...IT WILL WORK!
I've been scanning in my grandmother's picture slides and have uploaded a few favorites to DeviantArt.
The first one is of my mother when she was 1.5 years old.
The second is my aunt in a stroller with my grandmother. It looks kind of like a darkened picture in a scary movie (specifically reminds me of the picture in Paranormal Activity).
