Well it is New Years eve. Me and my dad usually stay up all night. Well i think we actually just stayed up until midnight because in past years that was a treat for me, now i stay up until midnight all the time so maybe we will stay up the whole night. But i unfortunately doubt it. I don't even know what we are going to do today. I think my mom and dad usually stay up and drink a small glass of wine. I of course don't get any but i think it tastes gross anyway. This day might just be like everyday. But i don't know for sure. I know that i will probably hang out with my friend if he is available today. I'm not sure because its new years eve and some people stay in and i guess somehow celebrate. That's just a speculation though. I cant be sure. So happy New Years Eve.

I am currently reading The Stand by Stephen King and i think so far that it is a great book. Its really exciting and i definitely enjoy reading it. The book definitely gets you hooked on it. It has some pretty questionable content though. Like sex and major drinking. I don't think i have come across any drugs though. I guess you could say that the payday candy bar us like a drug to fat Harold Lauder. I think there is something suspicious going on with him and Nadine Cross. Those are just a couple characters. There are so many characters in that book. Nick is a deaf-mute but he can read lips perfectly. He is even part of "government" committee which they call the Free-Zone committee that him and many others set up to get things up and running. The place that they are living in along with many other survivors of the "Super flu" is called the Free Zone. There is another section which there isn't a name for yet but there are supposedly the bad guys. I'm about 3/4s of the way through the book. I think its a great book so ill get back to you when i finish the book.

I saw Avatar last night and it was just awesome. Lots of action again. And you know i love action if you've read previous posts. But there was a lot of blowing up things and destroying and killing. I thought the whole story plot was clever. The movie was a about two and a half hours long. The movie ended at about 10:40. I wasn't that tired but i read until twelve so i guess that makes me tired now. 11:00 is my real bedtime. Its pretty much much about a crippled marine who's brother died who was supposedly a great marine but he got shot or i think robbed. I'm pretty sure the guy explained it by saying he got shot "for the paper in his wallet." So that pretty much means he was robbed and now his brother is taking his place and his avatar. What the marine people want is the stuff the aliens are living on called unobtainium. Its really expensive and valuable. The movie is set pretty far into the future. The marines have big robots which the go into and connect sensors to their hands and they can control the robot by making it walk and it has a huge gun and apparently a huge knife as well. The movie reminded me of District nine. I thought it was a lot like that movie but i think i liked Avatar a lot better than District nine. I also saw Avatar in 3D and it was great. I think you should do the same and definitely see this movie.

I saw the new Sherlock Holmes movie last night and i was there until about 1:00am. I loved the movie and the parts especially when Sherlock plans out what he does ahead of time and you get to see it in slow motion as he explains each move. And then you get to see him do it for real. I All the ear stuff that he did, i already knew about but not so much the other stuff he did to people. I loved how the movie was also a comedy. It was hilarious. I loved the one part how the guy tried to shoot Lord Blackwood and then was immediately set on fire. It was just great. I also liked all the action and fighting. I love fighting where people get beat up in movies. I thought it was funny how Sherlock was always testing his concoctions on his friend's dog. That was funny. So that's what i have to say on the movie because i don't want to spoil it for you. So definitely go see the new Sherlock Holmes movie.

So i got this game called Redsteel for the Wii and it is super fun. Its a sword and gun game. You use the Wii remote to swing your sword and to aim your gun. Pretty much any motion you do, the game does the exact same thing. If you have a gun in our hand and you turn the Wii remote sideways, the gun will also turn sideways. When you have a gun and you go into lock on mode to follow an enemy, you can move your remote forward and it will zoom in for a more precise shot. I played with my brother on Christmas and hes now addicted to it and hes playing with my dad right now downstairs. My brother is really good at that game too. He kicked my butt on some levels on 2-player and I'm pretty sure hes kicking my dads butt right now. The game is like a Japanese samurai game. You can get respect by not striking your opponent down to kill in a sword fight when he gets on his knees. You fight him until he gets on his knees. Its a super fun game and i can't wait to play my dad who so genuinely thinks he can beat me but we will have to see about that.

We got so many Christmas presents. I opened a couple of them on Christmas eve too. My friend and dad's friend came over. My friend is actually my dad's friend's son. So they came over for Christmas eve and for Christmas. It is was fun. On Christmas eve we watched a couple of comedy shows called the Big Bang Theory, and the IT Crowd. I had already most of the Big Bang Theory with my friend because he stayed over but then we got dropped off at Starbucks so my dad could pick up my brother and sister from the Boys and Girls club because there wasn't enough seats so my friend's dad came to pick us up and we ate Chinese food and then watched the shows over. I had already previously watched the IT crowd shows with the same friend too but we watched a new episode. So the on Christmas we opened half the presents with the, because they came late and we had already planned for them to come over for Christmas. We had presents for them and they had present for us too. From them i got a spider man bobble head pen and a couple spider man pins and binoculars. I was actually the present hand out person but my sister started to take them for her self and i got agitated and then told her to stop but she didn't and then my brother started to take them for himself too and that's when i apparently stopped being the present hand outer person. We all took pictures. Over all of what i can remember for my presents. I got a jacket, couple shirts, socks, boxers, a hat, sunglasses, flannel sheets and fur moccasins (which i picked out with my mom), a book called the Cheese, a grateful dead CD called American Beauty which i am listening to right now, a velvet poster to draw on, the binoculars, spider man pen, and pins. I think that's all of it. So how was your Christmas?

So i like to get my long nice sleep that i deserve without being bothered. But apparently that cant happen unless i am in a super deep sleep. Today my mom comes in and irons her clothes for work but that is totally unnecessary. She says if she uses it in her room that the electricity will go out, which is a likely situation because that is was caused a lot of the other black outs in our house. Probably because my dad is a computer programmer and is always working in his room and has tons of devices plugged in the power strips and those power strips connected to other ones and its just crazy. Today, she didn't have to go in my room and iron, she could have done it in my brother's room which would have been a lot more convenient because my brother and sister have to wake up early because they go to a daycare thing since there isn't really they can do here except bother me and my dad. I already know not to bother my dad when it his work days. Which is the weekdays. Over the summer, since my sister wakes up early all the time anyway, she used to wake up my brother and then go and bother me in my sleep and that always used to piss me off. Now i don't let them in my room so they can't really bother me. Although they do come in when they get the chance which is when either one of my parents are in here like today when my mom was ironing, my sister came in for really no reason. I think they just like to come in here. My sister really likes to go on my bed. I don't really know why but its probably because i have a bunk bed and no one else does. But i have definitely been getting a lot of sleep and i usually appreciate waking up early because i have more time in the day to get all of my chores and stuff done earlier which allows me some free time. Of course, when i get told to get off of my free time and go down stairs which is at my brother's bedtime, i get immediately mad. I don't like to get mad like that, but its like a reflex i can;t control. I hate it but i really like it when i am doing something i like. I'm usually playing games on my computer. But it just really pisses me off and i need someway to fix it. But i really just need to control myself. That's pretty much the key point to many things.

There was a knock on the door about 10 or 15 minutes ago and it was the UPS guys delivering packages. There were 4 packages. MY grandmother always sen packages every Christmas but never this much as i can remember. There was a huge heavy box for my brother, sister, and me. There was a light box for my brother with a Lego box in it. Two other boxes were for my mom and dad. Some of the packages were ripped so i got a sort of glimpse of the presents. One of my packages was a shirt. Yesterday i went shopping with my mom to gt me presents and i picked out flannel sheets, and moccasins with fur in them and you can was around outside with them and they are super comfortable. We also got a popcorn maker for my brother and some pink binoculars for my sister. I don't know what else she got or everybody else because she dropped me off at home and then went out to do more shopping. I had to go home because i had a lot of stuff to do. My mom still wanted to wrap my present and i even helped her wrap them. So i can't wait to finally open my presents. By the way, on the post before this, I'm not taking the study skills course over the summer but actually over the winter break which is now. And on the mad science club thing, they put name that bad guy. Not so funny but i thought i might add it.

So on my computer which is fairly advanced has different games then on older PCs. It has this game called inkball, which i got caught playing when i wasn't supposed to. There is solitare, spidersolitare, hearts, chess titans, freecell, majong titans, minesweeper, and purble (not purple) place, which all look different and cooler than on the old PCs. Chess titans, majong titans, purble place, and inkball are all new ones. There are pretty fun too. I got the game bioshock so it adds it to the game explorer. If you get other games it adds it on there too. On Inkball there are different colored balls in some levels and you have a pen and you make lines for the balls to bounce off of and your supposed to make it go in their own color. There are like 5 different levels of difficulty obviously getting harder as the difficulty gets higher. Its sort of fun. Chess titans is just chess. Purble place is really weird and stupid. Its for little kids like asking you to make a cake according to the picture. Its just really stupid. Majong is just majong when you have to match up the tiles. You can just press hint the whole time and then you win. I did that once. Its pretty weird. So there are the newer games.

So i had a test on Wednesday and i knew i needed to get an A on it. I had a choice the day before the test to sleep over at my friends house since it is right next to the school so i can just walk there instead of taking the bus. So i chose to go there and i knew my friends dad would study with me and he did and he is very good to study with. He definitely takes care of business. So i studied with him but we didn't quite get through both of the chapters. I also studied with my friend. Then the next morning i had a paper sitting in front of my door and it was faxed science noted from home which i was sure i didn't need. My dad had faxed them to me and i told him i didn't need them and apparently that was the worst choice of words for that moment. My dad asked me stuff on it and i didn't know any of the stuff on there because i had different definitions. I guess both of the definitions were correct. My dad didn't like too much that i didn't know the terminology on the paper. So we argued a lot that day. I went to school and since it was a 2 hour period we did a bingo study thing before the test and then we did the test. I thought i knew the answers right when i read the questions and i was going to get an A for sure. So then 2 days later on Friday we get the test scored back. I got a 34 out of 50 which is a C. I thought it was a high B. So i get a text message from my dad saying you got a C no the test, we will talk. I was very disappointed because i had never gotten a C on a test in that class. So we talked this morning when we were working on a puzzle after all the kids went upstairs and he told me everything that happened and cam to the conclusion that i am going to take a study skills course online over the summer. The whole time i nodded and said mmhhmm because i didn't want to argue because i knew it wouldn't do any good in changing any body's mind. Plus i want to do anything to get all A's in that class. I will just have to do everything my dads plans out for me that is not too extreme and i guess taking a course online isn't very extreme.

Yes, of course you have to get candy candy canes for Christmas. I bought a 24 pack of them from the 99 cent store last year and i gave them to my friends of course there wasn't enough because i have a lot of friends but I'm sure it was fine. But the big box full of them was sticking out of my backpack. This time i had to buy from the dollar tree and i couldn't find the big box like before so i bought every different kind there and it was three different flavors from the same company who made them. Blueberry, peppermint, and cinnamon. When i was leaving i saw a rainbow one and i was sort of disappointed that i didn't buy it. I couldn't because my dad was waiting for me outside. But no biggy. Today when i gave them away, i would ask them, peppermint, cinnamon, or blueberry and almost everyone asked for blueberry and i only had 12 of those and i had 2 blueberry ones before school even started! But everyone definitely appreciated it. I thought the peppermint was pretty gross but some people asked for it. I didn't warn them. The blueberry was definitely the best and cinnamon was good too but peppermint was just ok. There was this one girl who had been mad at me for maybe about 2 weeks because of no valid reason. Her back was turned to me and i offered her one to be friend; because i as trying to get her to stop being mad. she shook her head no with her back still turned to me. I different the people around us one and they said yes. Then she faced forward and i offered her one again because she started too look at them. I knew she wanted one. She said yes and that was pretty much the end of her being mad at me. She laughed too. I also offered our Spanish substitute teacher one and he took it with a thanks. I gave away a lot of candy canes. So i am very generous and definitely feel good about myself.

Many many many people have read this book and i am reading it for my English class. I am maybe 2/3 of the way through. I just got done with the jury part and that went on for a lot of chapters. It is a really good book. Usually you would think that if you are reading a book for school that its not going to be enjoyable, but this one actually is. Its got lot of detail in it and its sort of suspenseful and its about children and its a super popular book. Sometimes our teacher laughs at some of the stuff in the book and when she reads it, she reads it with some sort of an accent. I thought it was hilarious when i first heard her read it. So yeah if you haven't read it, i definitely recommend it.

Do you know this popular song by the pianist Jerry Le. Well i obviously do because i am a pianist and I've heard this song a million times. I can even play maybe half of it. Well i didn't really post about the song. But i posted about the movie. I thought it was a great movie but i usually think movies are great unless they are totally ridiculous and not that funny like Nacho Libre which was my first post. But i definitely liked this movie. Its based on a true story. Jerry Le marries his 13 year old cousin! That's ridiculous. Who would do that. Well he does say many times over and over that he really does love her and that's what makes right. I guess i agree with that. They do very much love each other. That may make it right. What do you think?

I want the env touch because its a touch screen and it has a keyboard. And mostly because my phones about to break. They don't even make my phone anymore. I have an Alias. I sort of want the Alias 2 but i really want the env touch. I've actually wanted it ever since it came out. I cant get the new droid phone (which is the best phone ever) because it is a lot of money and you have to pay a monthly fee because it is a smart phone. The env touch isn't a smart phone and its still awesome. I want it because it takes good pictures and plays music great and its really cool. I mean it has a touch screen so it has to be cool. I've always wanted a physical keyboard phone and a touch screen phone and this is just perfect. So hopefully i will get it.

I know some people like the rain and some people don't but i happen to be one of those people in the middle. I don't like being cold but playing in the beautiful rain is fun. I like to be wet sort of. I just think its fun. Its usually always sunny and i guess its nice to have a little change during the day. But on the other hand those changes could be fatal. They could lead to landslides. And i mean major landslides. But i like how some times thunder and lightning come. I love the flash in the sky and the sound is cool too. The colorful streak in the sky is also very beautiful. I remember that time i was in Virginia visiting my aunt and uncle and friends and two little cousins. They are so cute. But one time when i was riding my uncle's 4-wheeler i stopped to look at the lightning. I don't even think it was raining, but maybe it was. But one time i think a drop came down and got under my seat and i heard a loud sound and i was scared so i got off and it was smoking. Nothing actually happened thank god but something could have happened. But yeah, i guess you could say i love the rain.

So whenever i go to bed or feel excited or something or just any time i make it happen, i get a weird surge through my whole body and its super hard to explain but its weird and it feels like it shakes my whole body and my hands fingers stretch out so you can see the tendons or something that go through you fingers. Its crazy and awesome and i don't even know if i like it. I think i might though. It happens to me when I'm really hyper like when i wake up. Its crazy and it hard to explain. I sort of feels like I'm doing the worm sort of. Its just weird. So you know, just think about it.

So i have Spanish class and ever since one day near the beginning of the year i started to act up a little and started to make people laugh and then my teacher saw what was going on and said something to me that included Mr funny or something but that was a sign to stop and so i did but ever since then, she hasn't really liked me. And I'm not so great of a Spanish person because i don't know if I'm right or not but i try, but i just give up because i don't want to be wrong. I like to be right though. But my "friend" who sits behind me somehow gets me in trouble a lot and she told me she would because its entertaining. I find that ridiculous and i did talk to her about it and how i needed an A in that class so she should stop and i guess that actually worked and she hasn't been getting me in trouble lately. So for the moment I'm trouble free in that class and all other classes. But still my Spanish teacher isn't really too fond of me.

I remember this really old game that i used to be almost obsessed with. Well now some people actually bring their gameboys and actually play them at school. Its crazy because who would first of all bring a gameboy to school, and second bring Pokemon, and third play it during class. You are supposed to be learning during class. Its just ridiculous. My friend plays it everyday during geometry class. His girlfriend got sort of embarrassed when i told her about it because she knew he does that but hates how hes obsessed with it. She told me that she always complains to him about spending time with her and not the game. She told me about one instance when they were at her house and he was playing on her bed and she was just sitting there watching TV. I thought how boring that would be and how messed up that is too. But oh well .Some people just get hooked on that game like its some sort of drug.

I think its crazy how time flies by so fast. But mostly when your having fun and I'm usually having fun. Especially with high school. I'm always hearing how your high school years go by so fast that you cant even believe it because its four year. Unless obviously if your a super genius and know everything so well that you can skip a grade. That's pretty rare though. But everyday know for me, time is sort of a dilemma. I am always trying to organize things in some amount of time. I am always thinking about time and how fast i can get something done but actually knowing the material. I like to limit my time like eating breakfast in the morning which i was very slow at and still am. But i am always organizing all my school work in some amount of time in between the due date. I am definitely organizing much better these days because that's pretty much what high school is, organizing. But i am a procrastinator which does not help me, but i am fixing that problem. I like to spread things apart and not do everything all on one day. Like yesterday i finished my math homework. Today i am going to finish my science lab. If not today, tomorrow i will finish my Spanish and reading for English. I like to plan things out ahead of time. It just makes things much easier.

I just got finished with a game of Settlers of Catan. Which is a very popular German game where you have resources and you can trade them to the bank or to other players. Trading to the bank costs more than what you might be able to negotiate with the other players. There are development cards that let you do different things like have extra points, move the thief which don't let the player who is on that hex get the resource there and you get to steal a card from them, take two cards from the bank, build 2 free roads to extend your abilities to settle, or call a resource out and you get however many of that resource tat all players have. Your goal is to get the winning amount of points. You can get points by having settlements, cities, the longest road, or the largest army, or the special extra point card. If you have at least 5 roads and it is the longest, you get the longest road card. The largest army is if you have played the knight at least 3 times and you have the most of those. Anyways, our guests played with us and it was fun but the game took way too long. My dad was 1 point from winning so our gust called the game off and let my dad win. Everyone was getting a little fidgety anyways. That does indeed include myself though. It is pretty late. But it definitely was a pretty fun game.
Thursday, December 03, 2009
So my dad finally got the new droid phone which he has been wanting since it came out which is not long ago since its the newest phone out. It costs $200 but he had a $50 off thing so it cost him only $150! That's a lot of money but it doesn't stop there. Its a smart phone so you have to pay $30 every month! So there is definitely a lot of money associated with the thing but i pretty sure it was worth it because it is freaking awesome! I am so jealous now because i only have the alias which they stopped making. I want the EnV touch really badly. I mean i obviously want the droid the most but i know I'm not getting that because of all the money involved. So my next step is the EnV touch. That costs $100! So i don't really know about that.

So when i get to my Math class, there is a bunch of writing on the white board. At the top in big letters it says, Mad Science Club. I'm not a part of it and don't plan to be. What they do and think of is crazy and I'm pretty sure the club is at lunch because my math class is at lunch. They write pretty much outrageous stuff but it is funny. I cant really remember anything but there was locker-ovens, and then they do crazy drawings. Today there was a 3 or 4 headed turkey. It was weird. I think they constructed a rocket looking sort of thing. It looked like it was going to fall apart if anyone touched it so i didn't touch it. I think i once walked in on the club because i left lunch pretty early but i think they were just wrapping up. So yeah, if i see anything more that i think is at least mildly funny, ill write about it.

So there is this new game out for PS3 and Xbox360 called Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. My friends were talking about how great it is and i don't even have any of those new systems. My friend told me to ask Santa to hook me up with a 360 or he will do it for me. So apparently hes gonna do it for me. But the other day i actually got to play it on my friend's Xbox Live and it was fun and addicting and just great. I really want a 360 now. Really badly and i hope to get one, but i just don't know if i will have time to play it because i never have time to do anything with game systems really. But that's probably because i have a short focus span so i get off track really easily but the 360 would definitely be an incentive and i would most likely not ease off my homework so easily. But life is good.
