Productivity

Monday, February 16, 2009 § 0

Like I said in the previous post, my laptop power adapter broke. Without having a laptop to suck my time away, I've gotten a lot more done. I took a ton of pictures and edited them, read close to three books, watched more tv, and done all my homework before seven.

A couple of hours ago I placed the order for another power adapter. I can wave my new found productivity good bye. But I'll probably write more blog posts.

More Photography

On Friday my laptop adapter broke. I’m writing this from my parents computer. I spend a lot of time on my laptop, and without it, I was a little bored. I decided to grab my camera, go around my house and backyard and take pictures of random things. It was actually pretty fun, and I think a lot of the shots turned out pretty well.

Later, I took my dog into the backyard and got some shots from her using the burst photography feature on my camera.

CIMG1922

This has been in my bathroom since the beginning of winter. I think it’s creepy.

The Weather Part Two

Well, the warmth is gone. Great.

The Weather

It was absolutely gorgeous outside today. Right now I’m sitting in my room with the windows wide open. It’s 60 degrees and sunny outside, which is boiling considering how cold this winter has been.

I purposely started walking to the bus stop early this morning; the weather just put me in a great mood for the rest of the day.

I hope that this warmth will last a little while longer.

Bones

Sunday, February 8, 2009 § 1

So I started watching this show about two weeks ago, when one of my friends recommended it to me. It’s a crime fighting show, where one of the main characters is a forensic anthropologist and the other is an FBI agent. They work together to help solve murders. There’s something about this show that appeals to me, which is weird, cause I haven’t liked shows like CSI in the past. I think it’s something to do with the characters and their interactions that really makes it interesting. In that way, it reminds of the show, The Big Bang Theory, that also shows “geeks” interacting with other people.

I’ve been slowly working my way through the seasons (there are four of them now) and I’m kind of addicted. At least they’ll run out soon =]. But if you need some more tv to watch, check this show out.

Colleges

Saturday, February 7, 2009 § 1

Kids at our school took the plan test like a month ago. It’s basically a practice test for the ACT, which also gives you some suggestions on what career you’d be well suited for.

On the test, there was a section where you check a box if you want colleges to be able to contact you. I did, and now I’ve been getting close to ten emails everyday. At first, I thought it was really obnoxious, but now I think it’s actually pretty cool. It’s getting me really excited about college.

I’ve gotten emails from NYU, Rice University, Columbia and Stanford.

I know that they send these emails out to loads of people, but it’s still exciting, and my interest is definitely piqued.

Second Semester Slump

§ 0

Last week end everyone at my school got their report cards. I did well, better than I thought I would. It felt good to see all of my hard work pay off, and I was happy.

But this week, I felt so little motivation. All I wanted to do was lay on my bed and watch Bones, a tv show that I became recently obsessed with.

I just feel tired. The same thing happened last year, and my grades went down, not a lot, but enough.

I need something to kick start my motivation again.
