Update on my life

Today is a day of happiness.

Well, actually, its more of this week. You see, this week, Starcraft 2 was announced by blizzard!

So, ya, check it out, at,

Also, I am almost done school, just 2 more science test, 1 history report, one book report, and one math test, YAA!!! PARTY!

Umm… what else to say? Not much… maybe this is why I haven’t updated this blog in a while. I haven’t had anything to say. Life’s been going on as normal, I’ve been doing school, writing, reading, eating, talking to people, etc.

Oh, well, I suppose I could tell you a bit about my history report. It’s a World War I report, with a serious (as in, the point of the report) focus on three weapons used during that war. Those weapons are: The tank, the machine gun, and the various artillery used during the war.

Anyways… so, with the advent of summer, I’m wondering what I’m going to do… hopefully, I’ll get Malazan Book of the Fallen Volume 5 (Midnight Tides) soon, that and Harry Potter 7 should be fun to read… I should also try and read the Simillerion, or however you spell it.

And now, I’m going to go do something else… maybe play gamecube for a bit.

4him Retreat

Well, I just got back from the annual (or at least, usually annual I think) 4him retreat.

4him is my Church Youth Group, this current generation (somewhere in limbo between the 1st and the 2nd generation I’d say) is about 44 people. Of these 44 people about 30 live in Dhaka (many are now in university or boarding school abroad).

Anyways, so I’m back from the retreat, we left from church on Friday after the morning English service (yes, church is on Fridays… it’s a bit lengthy to explain), and arrived at the place were we spent the retreat (a Bangladesh Baptist Campground sorta place called the Prayer Garden) in time for a late lunch (2:30ish) of Dhal, Rice, and Chicken Curry.

Anyways… I could go on about how what we ate, but I’m not. Mainly, we had a lot of free time to hang around, as well as a good bit of worship and sharing from everyone, some people shared some really personal stuff, which was cool.

Oh ya, I also converted Julius (one of my friends at 4him) to Warhammer Fantasy Role-play, which is cool, I (as the Game-Master) ran a intro scenario called Through the Drakwald for him and Jacob (another one of my friends), and we set up a place were we can meet regularly.

It was a blast… the Prayer Garden is a great place to go to relax and enjoy ones self. It’s very basic: cots on the floor with mosquito nets, hard pillows (which I like), and very simple food, but its still a great place. I think some of my favorite memories are from playing with my friends at the Prayer Garden… but I’d better stop thinking about that ‘cos I’m already getting nostalgic.

The only thing I think that the retreat was missing, was more time, I felt this retreat we had more time than the last one, but, still I would like to have another 12 hours to spend, you know, leave Dhaka Thursday afternoon, and comeback Saturday afternoon. 48 hours instead of 24.

For more on Through the Drakwald, check out my other blog, (if that doesn’t work, check out my profile, that’ll give a proper link).

Well, my Mom finally decided, after much straining, thinking, and stressing, decided to sign me up for a Potter’s school English class.

So, this morning, while I was pursuing the magic section of my WFRP Corebook (I haven’t really read the others as much, and, at least for a while, don’t need to do so), my mom handed me to groups of paper and said, “Which class do you want to do?” So I had a choice, English 9 (yes, I know it’s a 9th Grade Course and I’ll be in 10th Grade), or Writing Composition, I chose English 9.

Why? Well, Potter’s school is pretty demanding, my sister has had to work her butt off for her class, and mine hasn’t been that easy either (okay… actually, that’s not totally true, I’m maintaining a straight A average with ease). The Writing Composition looked really challenging (like, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T give a C!) and while the English 9 looked like I could pass pretty easily (while at the same time, learning quite a bit). Also, Writing Composition was like an all grammar class… grammar, grammar, grammar, grammar. Grade 9 English on the other hand was a little of everything… essays, reading stuff, Bible stuff, grammar, journaling, AND NOVEL WRITING!!!!

So, yes, I’m doing English 9.

Peace People.

Oh, anyone who hasn’t already done so wanna leave a comment? I’d appreciate it. I know that at least one person is reading this… but, well, one person in the entire world of bloggers on is sorta depressing.

Well, recently, I got my hands on my three WFRP books, which have begun my venture in the realm of Role-playing.

I've starting a campaign blog here... I think its so feel free to check it out... I'll have the first official campaign update up soon.

As for the rest of life? Well, school is slowly plodding along... 4him is doing well, I'm enjoying helping out in Kid's Church (once a month thing for all the kids at Church), and well, ya... nothing to report, except, the only PC game I have worth playing now is the Sims 2, which is fun, if not a bit boring.
