Hey look, I blogged again!

Hey guys, I haven’t blogged in ages, so I felt like doing so today :D

School:

So, I have moved onto the second year of A levels, and already this year is looking better than the last. Last year I found it incredibly hard to motivate myself to do anything for some reason, and not just school related things. My grades weren’t great, I dot 2 D’s and an EE (for double ICT, which is averaged from both parts, my single ICT was a C, but that was brought down by a U in the double section) :(, A levels are definitely harder than GCSE’s, in which I got A’s in all 3 sciences, and in maths, and a whole bunch of B’s and C’s.

Choosing universities is hard… I want to do computer science or games technology, but I am still working on a personal statement for them, which isn’t working out too well.

Stuff:

I got my braces removed this morning, feels great, it’s like someone took out all my old teeth and gave me some new ones. It’s going to take some getting used to though.

I also drew my first decent picture with my new graphics tablet, despite getting it a while ago. I hadn’t drawn anything good with it yet because, as I said earlier, I couldn’t motivate myself, and when I am not in the mood, everything looks like crap.

It’s Finn and Jake from Adventure Time (I love that show)

By the way, does anyone know anywhere I can watch season 3 episode 2, “Memory of a memoryâ€?? I have watched all the others, but I am having trouble finding this one. I can’t even pay to watch it here in the uk.

Minecraft:

1.8 pre release is awesome, and really revived my interest in minecraft. I love the new terrain generator, and online play seems more fun, although experience is done really badly, and lags servers every time someone dies, it would be much better if experience orbs joined together when they are near to each other and get bigger meaning there are generally less orbs. I want to make a town on the server where all the houses look like the skins of the heads of their owner it would be called skinville, or headville or something. Also I want to make a town out of pistons just so I can call it Pisston. I found a good texture pack and I would really recommend it to anyone who wants something which fits with the feel of the game, but in a much higher quality.

Sheep having a threesome in a tree

The town on the server, that’s Stevenup’s house, and my unfinished, vine griefed house in the background.

I made a solution to the xp problem

More vine griefing

Kabob and some silverfish

A farm

The sphax pack(it’s 64*64 so you will need MCPatcher, which has been updated.)

I also got Deus Ex HR recently, and that is very fun. I upgraded my RAM from 4Gb to 8Gb and it runs very smoothly now (unless I turn up ambient occlusion). I like the semi freeroaming aspect of it, and I love the way hacking and newspapers/ebooks etc. are done so you view them through your character’s eyes. You can even look around while reading something by holding down both mouse buttons and moving the mouse.

see ya,

Moikle

I died on the 64D server and now I'm stuck at spawn because it's lagging so bad. :(

@JID, so did I, and My diamond pick and all my items are somewhere near all the xp

Yeah getting them removed feels good. The scraping and then the brushing of the bracket glue. Yum.

I can still feel a tiny bit of glue on my back molars though…

I hate the stuff they use to get a mold of your teeth to fit a retainer.

apparently, if i wasn't an NHS patient, this would have cost about £3,000

I hate those teeth molds. I got mine when I needed a splint, and I almost threw-up in my mouth.

That lava pool is a neat idea, but it doesn't solve the already dropped xp :/

Also, I've watched some Adventure Time episodes here and there, but recently started watching each one through.

the top mold is worse, because it pushes over your tongue and down your throat…

Which episode of adventure time are you up to?

Today, I bit into my first apple since the January before last
