I have been neglecting this blog recently… not sure why… lots of things, mostly not a lot to exciting has happened.
Anyways… what has happened? Well, I had a sleepover with Brian last weekend that was fun. We watch a scary movie (and I stopped paying attention to it half-way through… because it was scary) talked (about everything) and played a game of Settlers of Cataan, and a game of the card Trading game, Timestream. I lost both of themL. To be honest, I was expecting as much, Settlers… Brian is VERY good in Settlers, and Timestream, to be honest, I just got bad luck. If I had gotten some better cards I could have managed a victory, but I didn’t, and just as I was recoverying from my defeat, he beat me. Still it was fun, Brian, in case you didn’t know, has now officially graduated from Hebron School in South India, and will be attending the University of Chicago in September. I’m happy for him, he’s done well in school and I’m sure he’ll do equally well, if not better in College.
Also… DOTA… I’ve been playing DOTA a bit more and I must say I’ve improved. It’ll take a while, but I believe that I can make my way up to the point where, eventually, me and Jacob can take on 5 insane AIs and win. Not to say that this goal is close, but it’s there. I’d say it’s like 6 months down the road of serious DOTA playing.
Today, Caleb comes over, which is great. Also, I’ll play DOTA with Jacob, Derek, and their friends… so I’ll have a good time.
Oh, looking over my schedule for next year, I suppose I’ll give you my list of courses:
Advanced Algebra (Algebra II) with Potter’s School
Advanced Composition with Potter’s School
Latin II with Potter’s School
Programming I (with Potter’s School)
Art History (1 Semester)
Yep… now while that may not sound like a lot, it is… Advanced Composition… one essay a week… I’ll survive, but will my sanity? :D. Algebra II I’m not so worried about, I can do math, and I did good in Algebra, I’m hoping that I can manage another 90 overall in this course, hopefully even better (it’d be nice to be able to get a GPA of like 3.7 overall for Highschool). Chemistry… I won’t enjoy Chemistry so much but it’s the last High School science course I’ll have to take, and that will help me… Latin II well, let’s just say I’m hoping I can survive the course! Programming I want to do, and I hope its fun. PE is required, and I don’t mind it, and Art History, well, its only a half-credit, and I need to take it, so what to do…
That’s all for now… I’ll try to upload this blog entry soon, it was written on the 9th, in case you were wonderings.
