I hope you are clear now on what 2011 details. Lets try to enjoy 2011 together, through the reading of my blog! I hope that everyone can certainly try to understand why i put what i put for these things. But since this is my last blog post of 2011, i want to do what i did last year, kind of as a tradition. I will write a farewell poem (totally improv) just for you, The very beautiful viewer (Ohh yaa).

End of 2010 poem (Improv)

Farewell 2010
I will cherrish the times
with my electronic pen
flipping dimes
living in a pig pen
I can hear the chimes
of the glorious epic win
Though i did little crimes
i will miss you 2010

I would talk about embrassing the new and preparing for the future. I might talk about how, since i turn 18 this year, 2011 will be incredible. But i won't. 2010 was good, lets pass go, collect our $200 and keep skipping. Thanks for reading my blog and supporting me with each blog post. Lets keep it real in 2011.

It's close to the end.

I'm going to post an 'End of the Year' blog probably on the last day of December (Since that totally fits) and tell you about how my year (2010) went and how 2011 will be better. I will also let everyone know about how the weight loss blog i'll be starting in January will be set up. If it's any help at all, i am going to update that regularly so its worth following.

I think its only fair to let you in on a few secrets of mine (if thats what you call them) so i'll let you know something only my 3 friends know (not including myself). I am working on ... a YouTube video script! Hold your applause since i haven't told you squat yet. I think you need to know that i just started working on it yesterday. I have about 950 words on the rough draft (script) so far. It will be an actual video so i will be acting in it. You can bet your bottom dollar i will be posting on my blog, but it would be easier if you would just go to YouTube to view it, since you can leave me comments (since you obviously don't like leaving comments on my blog).

Other then that, i think i've been updating my blog too much this month just because i'm anxious about January arriving. I'm not sure if its pre-2011 worries or just me. Perhaps it the fact that i'll start semester 2 of school in January ... i don't really know, haha. Though i have 3 days until school starts again. That makes me nervous but i hope semester 2 will be better then semester 1 was ...

Solar Fusion!

I wanna start this post by telling you that Sunkist: Solar Fusion is an amazing drink and even though i was skeptical, im glad i took the risk cuz its amazing! Next on the Agenda is my wednesday plans! I am going to my friends house which will be an incredible experience cuz were gonna play some video games, make a YouTube video, perhaps go for a 10 mile hike, and eat a nice large pretzel shipped in from Omaha!

No, Im being slightly insane again, were not gonna have an incredible experience, were gonna play video games, perhaps, i'm not hiking even a mile, and why would i mooch off peoples food? Thats just rood! I was raised better then that! But i am making that YouTube video, if i can!

I hope to not only post vlogs but also post a few vids with my friends as well. It's either a vlog or a Epic Duel video (or mario flash level), i want a little variety. Though i don't mind, it is my channel afterall, my face should be in the vids, haha.

Speaking of YouTube, i think it's kinda obvious, i was thinking this myself anyway, but i am going to make a weight loss blog! The YouTube channel will just complicate things. Though i will make the vids i post on my blog through YouTube. I dont like the whole Blogger video upload, YouTube videos are easier to embed to blog posts.

But other then that, i know i have to change my eating habbits and start using that jump rope. Plus, i wont intentionally try to cut off on habbits so my blog will be interesting! So i will link you when i get a URL (in, like, 10 minutes). If you see a link here then i already got the blog created; if not, you gotta come back to see.

Thank You GameStop!

Thanks to an amazing sale they were having a GameStop i was able to buy the game i've been wanting so badly, Super Smash Bros. Brawl! The sale was Buy 2 Pre-Owned games, get 1 free (of equal or lesser value). So you can only imagine the exitement i felt when i got an email from GameStop saying there was a sale going on. I was too happy! I mean, this was perfect timing!! I had 30 bucks, i had money, i had the green, the frog skins, haha, i got cash money! Not to mention, i had to talk to my sister ASAP so she could find a game she wanted (She ended up picking one out and buying another one).

So the fact that i could finally get the one game i wanted gave me an over-welming feeling of joy and happiness all mixed in with some hysteria over the deal. I mean, this doesn't happen, right? You don't just get something you want less then a week after you get xmas money; it doesn't happen ... ever! So i was just super happy.

My next blog post will probably be about the weight loss results. If you haven't voted on the poll, please vote now! Do not delay in the voting proccess, this will be epic!

Your so close, yet so far away!




Now doesn't this just look lovely? A great video that would convince anyone that Super Smash Bros. Brawl  is an epic game that deserves to be in every house containing a Wii. But instead i got a sister who thinks the game is totally stupid and not worth the time of even reading the description. Wait, i think im getting ahead of myself. Let me explain it to you from an earlier point of view.

So for christmas you know what i got, right? Yes, its the blog before this one, haha, and my brother (2nd oldest) told me today that he was gonna buy us a game but didn't know what to get us. He decides that cash is the best gift since we will be able to pick our own game that way. Personally, the first thing i thought of was Super Smash Bros. because of how incredibley awesome it is, ive played it at friends houses. But my sister had other ideas.

She doesn't know what she wants for the Wii since she has never really thought about what games there are. I have looked into it and found a lot of great games, none of which she likes. I know that she will love Super Smash Bros. because its for everyone, its just a combat action game with lots of brawling, hince the name. She doesn't doesn't think it's good because i like it! I think that totally steals the fun out of it. If she would just open her mind and think that, maybe, we could both like something and it not ruin the world, she might actually like the game ... maybe love it!

Now i know that there are certain people in the world that don't like action games and the whole brawl or fighting based games but my sister was totally awesome at NBA Street Vol. 2 on the PlayStation 2 and we loved playing that together! So why wouldn't she like this? ... Maybe i just want the game so badly and i'm so close to actually getting it, that im tricking my mind into thinking she will like it.

We looked at games for the Wii and the only games she even looked at were sports games, They make way to many sports games and i'm really starting to get sick of all the sports games!! I like games with a story line or great multiplayer action! If your gonna buy a sports game, don't fall for the '10 games in 1' trick all those fancy game covers give you, buy a game that will make that sport super fun and go for it! But you can only play so many sports games before you get bored. When you play an action or multiplayer game, you can play that for hours before you get bored because nothing is positive, there could be a suprise around the next corner! I think i'm reading into this to much but i don't really care. I want this game so bad, i just don't know how to convince her that she'll like it if she was more open-minded.

On a topic change, I have decided that i will decide what i will do with a poll i put on the left of my blog! Please take a second and vote for either a blog or youtube channel. That will make the decision final.

December 23rd, 2010

Ok so your wondering why i posted the title as December 23rd, right? Don't lie to me, you were curious. Well i will answer that for you in a simple little sentence. That was my christmas (Dec. 25th) for 2010! Your wondering why i'm not having chistmas on Dec. 25th and i will let you in on a little secret. A lot of my family is working on Christmas day. My mom gets a lovely christmas bonus for working on xmas and some of my brothers are working as well. Hey, not every place is closed on christmas.

You can call this my official 'Christmas Post' for 2010 since i'm gonna give you the scoop on what i got for christmas. instead of telling you what i got, i figure i will just post some pictures and let the captions tell you the rest. I mean, it seems pretty logical to me. Now keep in mind that my parents were streching the dollar and hoping it wont stop, so i'm sorry that there won't be many pictures. haha.

Kirby game i got from my (super awesome) aunt!
 
I specifically asked for a jump rope, so i could start my exercise blog/videos (maybe blog, maybe vids) with some good equipment. My mom suprised me with a great Gold's Gym jump rope (Those are NICE!).
  
Hallelujah, I can finally shave!

I didn't exactly ask for Fleece Throws but i'll take it, they look warm!

 I hope that your fully satisfied with my Christmas List even though it's probably not what you would want on yours. I know that Christmas is all about the love and all the people you have in your life so that's why i'm glad i didn't zone-in on only wanting gifts this year. I really enjoy the company more this year, I guess it has something to do with the fact that i'm growing older.

The older you get, the wiser you should get, right? Well i think that is truly correct. The older i get, the less presents really seem important to me. I still have things i want, everyone does, no matter how old anyone gets, you, joe, bob, and myself are always going to want something. So it's not that i don't want squat, it's that i can finally see the true importance of christmas and i like it.

When you think about the holidays, you usually think about Thanksgiving or Christmas, unless your a weirdo and think your birthday is a holiday ... Its not. But that usually makes you think of something else. Money, Expenses, Cold Hard Cash. Yaaaa, your gonna be broke next week, sorry. No, but it's all worth it in the end, 9 outta 10 times.

Love is the greatest part of the holidays (expecially Christmas). You don't have to agree with me, but it's great when you got all your relatives in one room and your all talking and laughing and having a good time. Sharing stories from the past that you've heard 12 times already, but you still love it. That's the best part of christmas, times like that can beat any christmas gift, no matter how expensive or fancy it is! I am 17 years old which means i'm starting to be seen as an adult by all my relatives. When i talk, they listen to me and i actually feel like an adult.

I know i got a few years still until i'm a 'official adult' but feeling like an adult and being treated like one gives me an incredible feeling inside. I love all my family and know they feel the same way about me. That's why Christmas is so incredibly cool.

To close this blog i want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! I hope your holidays are awesome and filled with all the love and happiness i felt and had at mine!

Too much stress for one person!

Ok so i am just kinda crazy confused. Why is the entire world so bad at funding? I mean, why is there a lower class? I think we should either be middle class or upper class. No in between, just ... Enough. I think people in the lower class have it horribly, trust me, i know! you know that aphorism Ben Franklin said, 'At the working man's house hunger looks in, but dares not enter', well my parents work very hard, trust me, so how come we dont have enough money for anything more then bills? We are always broke and i really hate that. I know i should be thankful for what i have, trust me, i am, but i just wish we had enough for some fun stuff. We have to depend on my moms tips for anything close to that. Which brings us to Christmas.

Christmas is all about being thankful for what and who you have. I love my parents, sister, friends, ect... There all awesome! I just know that its not enough this year. I have always been thankful, trust me, we've known financial struggle for awhile now. I just wish i could show them that i'm really thankful. Words, to me, don't mean squat without some action behind them. Lately, i can only speak for myself, i haven't shown that i am thankful recently. I haven't technically had a reason too, i've hated my life the last few months.

I don't wanna come across as unthankful, i am. I get to use the computer, tv, cell phone, and bed my parents bought but all that aside, i just really don't like where i am and it's starting to affect me lately. Sure, i can goof with my friends cuz i dont have to think about any of the crap. I like my friends, there awesome! I just wish, sometimes, i could have there lives. Yeesh, i'd be happy with that strange dude in my Algebra class's life! I know because his clothes are not cheap, i know, there name brand.

If you want me to just say that i will get over it and move on, i wont. I can't, at least, not yet. I just want to know that this financial situation will get better. I know God deals the cards and i don't blame him for anything, he doesn't cause any of this to happen, our choices in life do, but i just wish he would of slammed the door shut on some of my parents choices. I don't know how they got to where we are, but it all happened with there choices. I don't blame them either, i just hope that there future choices bring more ease to our troubles. I want my mom to come home and not be stressed. I want her to come home and see that, at least, i care about her.

I can speak for others, but i think my parents are stressed because, not only the finances, but because there failing, in there definitions, as parents. Sure, were a christian family but im questioning a lot of stuff now. I am so confused about everything. All i know is that God created the world and heaven and hell both exist. I'm on the fence and im scared to choose sides right now. Also, my parents probably have there own issues there dealing with , i dont know, im not a therapist, haha.

But this is just too much stress for one person. I think my mom has it the worst, trying to pay bills, keep my sister and myself happy, if she can, and making sure the house looks nice. I really wanna take a load of stress off of her but i don't know how i can help without getting her expectations up and, if i fail to help, make her even more stressed then before. Everyone gets there hopes up and then gets upset later when something doesnt happen. It really just ... sucks, actually.

People should just do what they can and not worry about the rest. If all you can do one day is work, then fine. If you can do a little dusting one day, fine with me. I dont think you should try to tackle all the problems at once, that's doomed to fail! I don't know, maybe i ponder things a bit too much. I just want a little happiness for, both, myself and my parents.

That's why i have been trying like really hard to get a job, i can, not only have some cash for myself, but i can help my parents out. Sure, they won't want my money, but i'm in the same boat, right? So i just want to help out, do my part, if you will. It doesn't look good for me though. We got a new store opening up and they got like 5 openings, but there not talking to me, even after i had a friend who works there talk to the manager and put in a good word about me.

I don't wanna be a lazy bum who sits at home over christmas break and gets on facebook. I only watch a few TV shows, not enough, thankfully, tv isn't that good anymore. Only Grey's Anatomy and Tower Prep are the only things i really care about watching. So that isn't a problem, Tuesdays and Thursdays 8pm (how convenient?). I can watch those anytime too cuz i record em' with DVR.

I could always become famous on YouTube like all those cool super stars who are famous and rich now because of it. Wait, one problem, i don't like cussing (i only cuss when i'm really mad or around my friends and it's an appropriate use of the word(s)). Well shucks, you've seen my vlogs, right? Am i good enough? I don't really know, i'm skeptical.

On a side note, i thought about starting either a weight loss blog or YouTube channel. I want to lose about 50+ pounds and i thought i would post a new video every week to show my progress. Is that a good idea? I'm gonna be making a video about it on my YouTube channel if you wanna check that out. I put a jump rope on my Christmas list. Haha, that might help me out.

So ya, let me now what you think about that. My next post should an Christmas Blog with what i got, don't worry, i don't expect viewers to buy me squat, all i want is a few more followers. If you can, maybe as an xmas favor, tell some of your friends to check out my blog and become a follower. I really want 2011 to be the year my followers start seriously growing. I thought 2010 would be that year but i was, obviously, wrong. Haha, no biggie, i think i will just hope for the best in 2011.

Happy Birthday Hannah!!

Lets talk about educational books

So far in my Zombie Science Fiction book, i have been putting a lot of detail into the characters and developing them while the plot kinda simmers on the pot for awhile. I got a complex gang of characters too. Over 10 characters in the book and each one i have carefully tried to give a unique personality. If i fail at that, please let me know, i dont wanna look dumb come time to publish. I think that the best part about my story is that i'm giving it chapters.

I'm starting with the Prologue, obviously, and i am currently on Chapter 5 (Page 30ish in the book). If you wanna sneak previous, well i'm terribly sorry (no im not) but you gotta wait until another post at another time. I thik that if you are patient enough, something good will come and you will jump for joy. I must warn you though, this blog title is DECIEVING! My book has questionalable language and some adult content coming up in further chapters.

I hope you don't frown upon me because of what is in my book, i am an individual and choose my own path in life, wherever it takes me. I think that this book is a fun hobby and it's not going affect my life anymore then anything else except when i'm talking about it. But if you wanna sneak peak now, i wont give you one but i will give you a nice little character sneak peak.

EDIT MODE:
So starting on Chapter 1 (Skiping the prologue), you see the main character, Robert (Last name never said), on the bus with his friends Kevin and Gregorie. They are going to school to have a fun educational day (not really). But when they get to school you meet some more characters. Bob shows up and he's a friend of all three (Rob, Kevin, and Gregorie) and talks to them. Next, Olivia comes into play, the crush of my life who i'm to afraid to talk to!


So Gregorie does something i wont tell you and it freaks me out and then Kevin gives me a pep talk that cheers me up. I then give you a bio on Kevin (brief) and then we move onto the next topic, Bob. I give you some perverted details about Bob (which i think are more hillarious then perverted) and that leads us close to Chapter 2, I think (Im going from memory). Once i get to class, i skip to the more important plot line which takes place in Econ. and Gov. My teacher is upset that im not focusing in class and my grade isn't at its best. So she wants me to stay after school but i ask if we can discuss things after lunch (I have lunch after that class).


We move to the lunch room scene (Oh boy) and at my lunch shift are Bob, Kevin, and Gregorie (of course). We talk about random crap until i see Olivia, who obviously has my lunch shift. Kevin starts ranting about how fat people are nasty and you want a skinny woman, even if she's dumb. He talks about how fat people are not attractive and won't be until they lose all that weight. I obviously disagree (cuz im not a shallow *ahem* doofus) because i find Olivia to be the sexiest woman alive so im still to afraid to talk to her.


When lunch is over, we move to the scene where (the real action starts) Steve is introduced.

ERROR!! .... ENDING EDIT MODE *Beep Beep Boop Bop Beeeeeeeeeeep*

Sorry folks, there must of been an error. I will get right on that ASAP. But i hope you liked what you read so far. I will keep you updated. Thanks.

Finally found that cord ...

OK, so i feel really stupid because i was looking for the cord for my camcorder so i can upload that video i was going to make of the really cool bits&pieces of the night my friends *Kevin* and *Gregorie* stayed over (Names changed for there protection) and i couldn't find them, so i finally gave up and was sitting in front of my computer when i saw a plastic Price Chopper sack behind the laptop.
I decided to take a peek inside and, to my suprise, was the bag of cords i was looking for! I was so suprised because i didnt remember putting them there but i knew i put them in the kitchen, it didn't matter ... doesn't matter to me, i quickly found the cord and uploaded the videos and i was thrilled.

Now, do to lack of cash, i had to create the video with Windows Movie Maker and we all know thats the default computer movie maker. So the video makes the quality look kinda bad but i got to make the video and thats all i cared about. I promised *Kevin* and *Gregorie* that i wouldn't post our scrabble game so i only have the video of us talking and the brawling in the living room at 3 AM.

So without further to do, here is the video you've all been waiting for (I hope).

Ask me anything http://formspring.me/askme22

Gotta find that cord ...

ok so i am going to have to spend today looking for some elecronics cords. i need to find the cord that connects to my camcorder and then connects to my computer so i can upload some vids i've recorded. My friends and I made some vids the other day and i want to edit some parts out of the video to make a funny video with just snippets of the original vids. It made more sense in my mind.

Anyway, i think thats its only fair to ask the permission from the people in the vid. They need to know there gonna be in an epic video. I think i'll ask after i made the video, perhaps while im uploading it? Haha, i'm just kidding. I just wont tell them until i see them at school. But first i have to find the cord cuz i can't even make the video until i find the cord to put them on the computer.

I think i'll just make a short blog and post again after i get the video uploaded, i will let you see the finished product when i fnish it ... If i find the cord. Wish me luck in finding it ...
