This is Why Heaters Were Invented

I watched episode 127 and 128 of Naruto today, and they were amazing!  I'm loving the whole Sasuke Retrieval arc (even though I absolutely hate Sasuke now).

I'm so close to being done with Specials by Scott Westerfeld!  I only have a couple of chapters left.  It is amazing!  This one may be my favorite of the series (although I still need to read Extras).

I didn't do much at all other than read and watch TV except freeze.  It's been about the same temperature in our house as it is outside, and I'm not at all exaggeration.  I really compared the temperatures and they were the exact change.  And believe me when I say it is very cold outside here.  I spent most of the day in my bed trying to stay warm under the covers.  I don't think our heat is on at all.  If it is, it's not helping much.

Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial

We spent this morning at the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial.  It's where Abraham Lincoln lived when he was growing up in Indiana.  We saw the place where their cabin used to stand and Lincoln's mom's grave.  It was cool.  Since we live so close, I'd been there before, but it was a long time ago, so I didn't really remember it that much.

Afterwards, we went over to this place called Buffalo Run.  They have buffalos, but we didn't see any because they'd gone into the forest.  They also have a cabin there that Abraham Lincoln had been in.  We ate there, and I had buffalo meat for the first time in my life.  It pretty much tasted like beef to me.  I guess there was a little bit of a different taste to it but not much.

New Blog

Guess what guys:  I have a new blog!  That doesn't mean I'm abandoning this one or anything.  This new blog is going to be completely different.  This blog is where I write about my life and stuff.  So what's this new blog for?  My writing.  I'm going to be posting both my fanfiction and original fiction there.  I have an introduction post on there that explains a little bit more about it, so go check it out if you're interested!

I spent my morning cleaning up TP at some stranger's house.  I'm a member of Key Club at my school, and every year we do this thing called Ghostbusters insurance.  Basically, if you buy a policy then a group of Key Club members will come clean up your yard if you get TPed.  I signed up last year, but no one got TPed on the day I was signed up.

We were lucky that we only had one house to clean up today, but unlucky because they had spread shredded paper across the whole yard (and this was a pretty large yard).  We didn't end up cleaning up all of the shredded paper because we'd have been there for days.  Plus, apparently the girl who lived there TPed her own house so that we'd have to clean it up which made us want to sit there and clean up every bit of paper even less.  We got most of it though.  At least it gave me something to do this morning, and I get along well with everyone I had to clean it up with.  I could have been in a group I don't get along with or something.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie came on TV this morning (before Ghostbusters but I recorded it to watch it after).  I read all four books a while ago, but had only seen bits of the movie before.  I enjoyed it although some things were definitely different from the book, but when isn't it.

My iPod suddenly died when it's battery wasn't that low a little while ago.  It's charging now and seems to be fine.  I'm a little scared though.  My iPods at least three (maybe four) years old, so I don't know how much longer its battery will last.  I'm going to be so upset when it's battery quites working.  This also reminded me that I want to transfer my iTunes over to my new laptop from my family's computer, but I haven't gotten around to it.  I know how to get my songs onto my laptop, but not the podcasts.  Does anyone know how to do that?

I updated Avatar: The Next Generation right before writing this post.  You guys should check it out if you're Avatar fans.  Here's a summary of chapter 14: On Their Own:
Zuko and Mai meet with generals to discuss what to do about Azula. Ozai has a visitor. Kazuna goes back to school, and catches up with her friends at the Southern Water Tribe. Aang meets with the Earth King, and then goes to visit an old friend in Ba Sing Se.
I watched episode 123 of Naruto last night.  It was an awesome episode!  Sasuke's finally awake!  Yay!  I can't wait to watch the next episode.

I finished reading James Potter and the Hall of Elder's Crossing.  I gave it a four of five stars on Goodreads.  I'll just post the review I wrote on there on here:
This story is basically just a Harry Potter fanfiction posted on it's own website and in PDF format unlike most fanfictions. However, it is a very good fanfiction. This was probably one of the best fanfictions I've read. You really feel like you're reading an actual book instead of a fanfiction. I can't wait to read the next one in the series!
We're watching Carrie Underwood preform for this CMA thing right now.  We did have it on Hannah Montana.  I haven't seen that show in forever.  Is it weird that I was kind of getting into it.  I don't know if it's because I used to actually watch the show on a regular basis or what.  For some reason I find the new episodes more entertaining then the old ones though.  I don't know.

Wrote a Strange Story

Today is the end of the first week of the Seven Awesome Nerds collab channel!  It went great!  I'm so excited about this!  I know it's going to be awesome!  I can't wait to post my second video tomorrow.

I don't know if I've mentioned this on here, but I know I've twittered about it and possibly mentioned in a vlog.  Seventeen magazine is having a fiction writing contest, and you can enter multiple times.  I wrote my third story for it today, and it's probably the strangest thing I've ever written.  I'm still going to submit it, but it's lucky I'm entering it to a girl's magazine because I don't think a guy would get it.  I didn't have any ideas when I sat down to write it. I just started writing, and the story just happened.

I watched episode 120 of Naruto earlier.  It was a good episode.

The Seven Awesome Nerds

Hey guys!  This will be a quick update since I don't have much to say.

I spent almost my whole day reading a Hunger Games fanfiction.  It's a really awesome fanfiction, and I'll probably talk more about it once I finish reading it.  Other than that, I didn't really do much today except some other stuff on the computer.

Guess what!  The collab channel I created (thesevenawesomenerds) is starting tomorrow!  I'll post the first video tomorrow, and then everyone else will post their first videos on their day of the week.  I'm so excited!  It's so amazing to finally get started!  I would really appreciate it if everyone checked it out.  I'm sure it's going to be awesome!
