A Korean Festival!


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life. The song/video for today is a song called Royals by Lorde. I just realized that I’ve listened/jammed to this song for a long time and have never gotten the time to present it to you guys who are reading this. So here it is! Enjoy!

So today was a pretty good day. I got a lot of things done today. First of all, I got to wake up around 7 o’clock in the morning and ate some breakfast. Then right after I tried to watch some Walking Dead episodes on Netflix when my Dad decided to come downstairs and sit down on the couch. Now I was afraid if my Dad started watching he would not approve of the gore and then have evidence that my show isn’t entertaining or worthwhile watching, which would then lead into some other problems. I gave up trying to watch The Walking Dead and went on Youtube to listen to some music. Eminem has been my primary man to listen to for the past few days.

After about an hour, my Mom came downstairs and prompted me to go read some religious book for about an hour to pay off my computer time or so I could play Minecraft. I couldn’t find the book “The Ragamuffin Gospel” so my Mom gave me this other book called “40 Days Living the Jesus Creed”. I actually, without a doubt, enjoy reading some religious books, because they open my eyes to my relationship with God and gives me a greater confidence in God. Once I passed by the 1 hour mark, I wanted to continue reading the book and reach page 100 and then finish the chapter within page 100. Page 100 was apparently half of the book (the book is about 206 pages), so when I came to my Mom and said I read 100 pages of the book she was shocked because I could just finish the book tomorrow easy. I got 1 hour and 39 minutes of reading time to finish all 100 pages and actually comprehend every word I was reading. I find it impossible to see that people read whole books in one day. I am capable of reading a whole book in one day, but eventually I get bored and lose my motivation to read. I have only so far read 100 pages on a book in one day.

I played about an hour on Minecraft and then got off. I was planning to go out and run for 25 minutes to get my muscles in shape. I feel like I’m getting fatter every Saturday and plus recently I’ve been getting a lot of calf muscle spasms. I mean excruciating muscle spasm. Whenever I wake up in the middle of the night, I stretch my body on command and apparently I seemed to contract a certain muscle on one of my legs which tightens the muscle to a painful point. It’s really painful cause I have to endure it and hope for it to fade away in the next 20 seconds. I’m really worried about the spasms, though. I talked to my Mom recently about it and she said that my legs are used to having blood pump a lot of on a consistent basis since I ran Cross Country till now. That makes sense, but it still makes me nervous to move certain parts of my muscles.

I played Skyrim afterwards for a whole hour and journeyed a lot in the game. I managed to defeat a great Bandit Chief in the game and received a lot of gold. I also found Ebony armor in a chest as I was meandering through the country. Most of what I’m saying you will probably not understand because it’s geek stuff. But thumbs up if you’re following along. I also stumbled upon a house on the farm on the side of a mountain towering over a lake. I entered the house and stole all the gold and valuables I could since it was in the dark. To my surprise, when I exited the house a “Bodyguard” (assuming it was guarding the house) came and attacked me. I killed him easily, decapitating him with a few simple clicks on the PS3 remote, but it was just a weird encounter since I don’t usually have people come and attack me besides the residents of the house themselves. I went back to Riften and started selling more armor and traveled through more caves until my 1 hour went up. There’s so much I can do in 1 hour in Skyrim. It feels awesome!

Once I finished playing, my Mom took my Dad and my brother and sister Anabelle (Patricia wasn’t with us cause right now she’s at Frequency) to Chik-fil-A. I didn’t go because I wanted to grab the opportunity to watch some Walking Dead episodes and work on homework with some peace and quiet. The struggle is, usually, that I always hear creaks from upstairs in my house, which always freak me out because the creaks almost sound like they’re caused by footsteps. Usually when I play the TV on a pretty loud volume mark the noise is drowned away and I can relax doing my things.

Randomly, my Mom decides to call me and says that she wants me to run to Chik-fil-A. I was hesitant (real hesitant) since I wanted to spend time in the house, but I wanted to go and run and do something I wouldn’t do normally. Eventually, I was convinced and ran to Chik-fil-A (they gave me directions to the place), which was about a mile run. So since I was in Cross Country for a period I was not tired at all after running the mile. Rather I felt energized and wanted to run some more. I did have troubles breathing on the way since I got a sore throat around the morning of today. Once I arrived at the store, I talked with my parents a little bit while Matthew (my brother) and Anabelle (my sister) got on the play-house in the corner of the store. Eventually I convinced my parents to buy me a nice cookies n cream ice-cream which I shared half of to my Mom since I didn’t want to ruin my nice run feel.

We were planning to go to the library afterwards, but unfortunately the library was closed the exact hour we decided to check the closing schedules for the nearby library. So, instead, we decided to go to the downtown Suwanee park and turns out there was A Korean Festival! At first, I felt awkward going there, being the only white boy with hippie pants on and a Nike sweat-shirt, but then again a lot of the Koreans there were wearing pimp clothes and Adidas shoes, so I didn’t feel so out of the ordinary. Matthew and Anabelle went into the jumpy house nearby and my Mom, Dad, and I sat on the short half slabs that served as seats in front of the stage. Turns out it was a talent show for Koreans. A lot of the performances were nice just not great. Mostly because the amplifiers were either too loud and static or they were too soft. I left before I could see the results of who won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place. I practiced on some parkour on some high stone concrete and turns out I am completely out of shape. I am disappointed in myself truly.

When 7 o’clock arrived, we left the area and arrived home. Then my brother and sister got into separate baths to clean themselves of their sweaty bodies. And that was pretty much it for today!

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

My Opinion (Very Briefly) on My Sister’s Attitude


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life. It’s a little bit weird that I have not posted in what seems to be several weeks. 2 or 1, give or take. I apologize sincerely for that. To whom am I apologizing? I don’t even know . . . To whoever is reading this! Maybe my future self when I’m approximately in my 20’s or 30’s. Oh gosh, I can’t even think of myself as that old of an adult. BUT, without wandering off topic, I will try to focus my days on blogging and posting. Not particularly this week because I have big CRCT tests, but the general idea of me going back to posting everyday will try to be taken back into command, hopefully. In the meantime, as I usually do in the beginning of my posts, I shall play you guys and girls a song that I have recently enjoyed and with hope that you enjoy it too! Also, before I give you guys this song, I fixed the followers bug. Turns out there was something I connected my blog to that gave me extra followers. But NOW it is fixed! Here’s the song finally!

Okay, so my day, in very brief terms . . .

Well, on Friday (the day before today [Saturday]), my brother, Matthew, decided to make both of us sleep on the first floor in our living room, on our couches, while my sisters went on a sleepover with their friends. At first, I was skeptical, but then I obliged. It was not too bad sleeping on the couches. I wake up to today pretty simple and go straight to the Office and use the computer. I was sort of hesitant to going to the computer since my Mom said that I was not allowed to play on the computer in the middle of the night and it was near 6 o’clock in the morning. I took the risk anyway with thankfully no one coming to peep on me. I enjoyed a few hours of watching Syndicate play the new map on Black Ops II Zombies called “Mob of the Dead”. Boy, that is such a good map. Wish I could enjoy some of that. xD

Once that was done, I waited throughout the day until my Mom finished watching a show on TV to play some Skyrim on the PS3. I’ve completely decided to go playing all Skyrim and progress swiftly through the game because lately all of the first person shooter games have been quite a difficulty and the gameplay is getting boring. Though I did have some difficulty with these vampires in a random cave I decided to explore in Skyrim. It took about 30 minutes of game time until eventually I decided I should go explore somewhere else. I decided to pickpocket a lot of people to get my experience up. I finally got to level up once from level 31 to 32. It takes a long time from my experience of gaming. 😛

But besides gaming, after I was done playing I went outside to practice some parkour and then went attempted to go to Brian’s house and see if I could play with him. Unfortunately, it seemed, he wasn’t there. So I went back to my house and went into my backyard to find my Dad discussing with my brother, Matthew. I was about to go inside as I was passing by when my Dad told me not to go inside and said that he wanted me to stay outside with them. Eventually my Dad started talking with me and we began talking very random things throughout the time. We also managed to fix a problem with the hula hoop we had. Fixing it had a special unusual feeling to it. My Dad took no hesitation to expressing his feelings about feeling special about fixing something. It was a good feeling, but for some reason my feelings were completely mute and I felt too lazy to react to anything. My Dad then began talking to me and reminded me about how I can control my feelings and emotions and not let my lazy ambition take over my well-being, which put a more positive mood on my day.

Afterwards I decided to pick up a book I’ve had over the past recent weeks. I borrowed a book from the library called “Dormia”. A really interesting book I must admit. I read for approximately 1 hour and a half outside. At a lot of points, since I was outside by myself in the nice air and nature, I spoke aloud the words of the book as if I were speaking to a class. At one point as I was reading, a group of bugs surrounded around my knee and sat down, not moving whatsoever. It appeared as if they just sat there patiently listening to me speaking the book. It was quite a funny experience. Despite how much little time I read on the book in comparison to a lot more people who read books with a greater compassion, I got through about 60 pages of the book. No matter what anybody thinks, I believe that is an amazing progression from recently what I’ve done. But I do admit that before, when I read previous books, I could read 100 pages everyday with no problem. All it takes is just getting back into the game, that’s all.

After I was done reading outside for awhile, my sister, Anabelle came outside. Apparently she came back from the sleepover. She told me about how one of her friends, Sarah (whom I thought at first she was talking about Sarah next door [I thought that immediately Sarah could have heard me talking to myself]), wanted to talk to me. At first I denied the request, annoyed by how Anabelle was smiling and it was all a joke. But then eventually I obliged to only have half way me interrupted by Anabelle telling me how she did not ACTUALLY need me. I decided to go back to reading when my Dad called me over next to him and told me about this book he was reading. Some of the information and the topic along with it was somewhat related to what I was reading in Dormia. I told my Dad of this and we began talking for a long time when suddenly Anabelle popped out of nowhere and grabbed my book when I was away, which really ticked me off. My Dad saw it too. He started yelling at her, not too hard though. Don’t worry. 😛

Turns out Sarah wanted to play a prank on me and tell Anabelle to take away my book. My Dad finished talking to Anabelle and sent her away. Then, my Dad and I finally finished discussing when Patricia came with Alicia and Sarah downstairs to eat brownies with us after they ate lunch. The brownies were exquisite, honestly. But on a greater thought, my sister began discussing with my Dad about this game called the “Oregon Trail”. For all who don’t know what the game is about, I implore you to search it up on Google or Safari or whatever because I do not feel like taking the time and words to post the description of the game. But anyway, my sister talked for a good whole lunch and dessert time about the game and my Dad was nearly convinced to buy the game on the iPad when it was only 99 cents and the description of the game seemed to impress him. Afterwards, I dismissed myself from the room, and the rest of the day was a blur up until my parents began watching this show on National Geographic (so glad we now have the channel), called “80’s The Decade That Made Us”. A good show showing a lot of what occurred during the 80’s. Finally, Alicia had to pick her up along with her friend Sarah.

When we finished watching the show, my Dad went away with his laptop for a little bit, and my Mom and I and my sister began watching the Breakfast Club. We started watching it yesterday, but only an hour of it. We finished it today and the movie was really good.

During the movie, my sister, Patricia, started giving a speech/rant about how one of the characters in the Breakfast Club was acting like a complete jerk. I was completely fine with this statement until she started jerking her head around as if every word that was spoken out of her mouth had an “umph” to it. I inquired her with why she said that. She did not answer and of course my Mom came into the situation and defended her. Then my sister began making more jerks and started giving some comebacks saying that I liked her before when she did not have an attitude because I liked her when she was shy and did not talk and then went on some gibberish saying that I liked her back then when she did not have a personality. All of those claims are just pure dog poop. That’s probably the meanest word I can say on this blog besides “crap”. Trust me, I have meaner words intended for how ridiculous I think this sounds.

My Mom even comes further into the discussion saying that she likes it that Patricia now has a personality and has some attitude. Uh, hello? Am I the only one who thinks that you can have a personality without an attitude as a girl. I mean, when you’re in necessary situations I would understand, but in simple things like this, I don’t believe it should be tolerated. Call me crazy, but I find attitude in girls, especially my own family members to be very unattractive and I don’t like it in any way. Eventually, during the conversation, I just gave up and said that these are not my kids and I’ll do this when I have my own kids. It sucks. But I had to, or at least I decided to.

At the end of the day, I took a shower and then my Mom rinsed my hair with vinegar due to the excessive scratching on my hair and irritation from the dandruff. Otherwise nothing else for the day. Everything has now led up to now.

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

Mary-Kate Is #1 In Most Comments . . . Shocker!


Hey guys, Andrew here and back with a new post (That’s gonna be my trademark). Well, as I’ve tried to post in the past few days, I failed to achieve it, therefore I leave myself posting about what happened over the weekend and over Monday.

During Saturday, if I can remember properly, Savino, King, and I were outside. Well isn’t that a surprise. Usually, we’re stuck sitting our butts outside on the hard rough pavement or on a power box talking about random stuff and hopefully making a few good jokes to entertain each other. Until around another hour past, Christian, an old friend of mine from out of the neighborhood, came over with Nicholas. I’m pretty sure you are familiar with most of these people, if not leave me a comment.

Once they came over, meandering about, Christian decided to whine and complain for a bit, hoping he would have somebody get somebody else to do something. His main intention, although, was to play video games all day, but unfortunately for him he has not gotten a gaming console or PC to use, nor does anyone else want him to use theirs. So, after he finished pouting, Nicholas had decided to talk about something, which came relatively close to a topic about Savino’s air soft guns. Once that topic arose, Christian and I began to ask Savino why not try out a BB war. He said he would, but he has only 6 guns, and ontop of that, he wasn’t sure if he could find all of them. Since there were 7 of us, including me, Matthew (my brother), Savino, Nicholas, King, and Christian we decided to try it out. Savino could only find 5 guns that worked just fine, so we decided to put King as referee, especially since he was already preoccupied with Simon texting him back and forth.

Once we got our guns ready, King sounded the bell and we began our battle. Unfortunately, though, I had clean white clothes on, and my battleground for my team, which was Christian and Matthew, was in the forest near lots of dirt piles. So I couldn’t easily get myself under cover when I was reloading. Luckily, for Savino and Nicholas they had a thick tree with a type of hanging grass that hid them under cover whenever they needed to reload. Plus, their guns had farther range and could damage a lot harder. Matthew got put with a suckish MP5 air soft gun, so eventually, we had to switch him out with Christian to hopefully get somewhere far. Though Christian was no better, so the end result was that we lost and I had caught a huge Poison Ivy rash on my foot and across my hip.

After that the day went on when we visited over to my father’s friend’s house, Bebe to meet up with them and hopefully so we could spend time with their kids. I don’t mention them as much, so you probably won’t know their names, but we’ve known them for a LONG time. The oldest one of the two kids is their daughter, who is 14 to 15, named Andrea. The other one is the youngest one who is a boy at age 11 named Anthony. We’ve had past problems with trying to socialize and spend time with them, but it has gotten easier now. I decided to talk with Andrea about some politics and see her opinion on Republicans and so I could speak my opinion about Democrats.

Once that was finished the day went on pretty boringly. I went on writing on my book, since I felt the need to continue it, but I’ve only got it to page 5. I love my story and I think it is a good one, but I’m just bad at describing things I don’t know very well, and plus I had to rack up something to start the book. BTW, my book is going to be called “George Williams and the Green Capsule”. It’s a series about a boy named George Williams. That’s all you need to know so far. 😛 I’ll probably give you guys some free copies. 🙂

So that was Saturday. Sunday went boringly and normally through. Nothing post-worthy, besides the fact that I learned of an old cult in the late 90’s who thought that at the end of Haley’s Comet was a UFO. So they killed themselves to give the bodies to the UFO. Which of course was stupid. Otherwise nothing happened except that my parents left, which then I found myself playing the PS3 since I’m not gonna get another advantage to play it when my parents are around.

Next day, first day of second week of school, Monday, started. I learned and noted a few things down since I was going to be very serious about this year’s education. But I became very lazy, and just listened to some music. I did not feel like writing on my book, since I felt extremely lazy. Therefore, I finished school pretty late, ’round 5 to 6 o’clock in the afternoon. By the time that was finished, my parents left again. And of course, I played on the PS3, actually getting some play time on MW3, because I had just fixed a problem with the new maps online. Next time, though, I’m playing Skyrim. Haven’t played that game in a long time.

Oh and finally we’re getting to the topic of today’s post. Mary-Kate, IS, officially, the number 1 person who has commented the most on my blog. 🙂 No surprise there, am I right? Well I just wanted to throw that out there.

Hope you enjoyed this post, like it if you will and please subscribe 😀

A Fast . . . From Video Games!!


Hey guys, Andrew here. I know I haven’t talked or posted for you guys for a long time, but I guess I might update a little bit about what’s been happening the past week. Tomorrow we’re supposed to be going into Saturday, my first break in the first week of school.

So yes, in Georgia, everyone has started school, even my online charter school has decided to start. It is a big change in schedule since I am so used to sleep late in the day and play video games during the weekday. Unfortunately, I won’t be doing any of that video game business any more. Not even during the weekend! My mother has told me she wants me to work REALLY hard to become #1 class student and get a scholarship. So in order to do that, I need to have ultimate dedication and complete focus.

So yes, that means I cannot play, at least my mother says, until Christmas break. She’s even stuffed my PlayStation 3 with the games in a box so she can put in her book, so yes, it’s getting serious here. Lately, with all the focus and less distractions around the house, I have been getting a lot of 100% grades on Science and Math, so I guess that’s a win, since those are my weakest subjects (counting it from last year on the CRCT). Though I am falling back on Social Studies. I do that subject last seeing that it’s not the most important, even though I enjoy it. And I’ve already failed two tests with a staggering 70% grade. Of course, in our school, I re-did the test and went from there, but I feel like I’m falling behind easily. I don’t want to fall behind, I want to go in front. 😛

Lately, more people have been coming outside more often. So that’s another plus on the week. I see, surprisingly, more dark-skinned teenage girls outside. I don’t want to say black cause that would racist. xD My fish tank has lately been getting real dirty, so I’ll probably have to clean it up. And oh oh ! I forgot to mention! Spikey died a week ago! It was pretty sad, but it did not affect me as much since 1. I was playing Skyrim when the death occurred. And 2. I did not spend time with him as much, so I couldn’t really call him my pet as much.

Most of the neighborhood actually came over and mourned with us over the funeral of Spikey. Of course the mourns were in sarcasm and we threw in some funny jokes, we had an overall great time! So I still have school work to do, that is all that has happened lately, I’ll probably post tomorrow but oh well, I don’t know what will happen. This post was a little shorter from the usual ones.

Please subscribe to my blog, maybe?
