Year's Progress...

Throughout this school year, I have written a total of 28 blog posts. All of them were the ones I was required to write for school, but I mixed my own passion and intrest into those posts. I have only got a few comments on my posts, and those were the ones that I really had to think about to answer. The post I recieved the most comments on was "When I write." One was from a teacher who wanted me to check out this kind of contest, and the other was from an anonymous person. I must admit, my favorite post was probably the one where I described the first episode of my favorite anime series, "Death Note."
As for the actual blog page, I did make a couple changes. I picked a blue color scheme to start, but switched to black because it better suits the name "Death Boy239." I'm not trying to make myself sound intimidating with that name, so don't automatically think that. It was a username I used for an online multiplayer game when I was like 8 years old, and I never really let go of it. I use it for pretty much everything now, besides a few certain websites.
However, I used a couple things on my blog that I like. the widgets are a good example. I have stuff like my universal translator, a map of people who visit my blog, which I called "Death's Quota Map," and a Voki I accidentaly deleted that pictured a skeloten that said "DB239 Forever." I actually loved that Voki.
I talked to a couple people and asked them to give an opinion on my blog, and they kind've laughed at it. The whole goth look of the blog doesn't suit my personality at all, was their first and pretty much only comment. They thought I should just drop the name and make something that suits me better.

Online, I am...

When I am online, I am either a slacker or a worker. I barely go on the computer at my house, because I don't use a lot of social networking sites. I don't use Youtube much, because I don't listen to a lot of music, and funny videos get boring after a while. I also don't play many games, because I can't play them at home, and there is too much work to be done here at school. Don't get me wrong, the internet is great and everything, but to me it's just another one of those things I could live without if I had to. Many kids really would be almost dead without the internet, because it would make our work so much harder. We would actually have to browse the books in the libraries to get our info! In short, I don't absolutely need or use the internet much, except when I have to.

With this paragraph, I answered the question of an online blogging challenge site. The question was: "What kind of online user are you?"

Beast of England Review

When you are looking at the videos, only use the first one. I had a lot of trouble memorizing the tune to this song, because of the mix of "Clementine" and "La Chucaracha." In my opinion, the song would have been better if it had just been sung to the tune of "Clementine."

When I write...

In the past two months that I have been writing, I have made much improvement, because of the new styles I write. I have always considered myself a very descriptive writer, but I may be a little full of myself at this point.I have always liked the way i write, especially when I am writing poetry. I have a certain knack for rhyming that I and a few other people think is a bit uncanny. I once wrote a poem that was nominated to be included in a book of children's literature. I have been known for putting all my mind into the things I write when I have strong feelings about the subject. One of the things I struggle with in my writing is length. Most of the time, I write either too little or too much. it is a rare event when I write a a paper that enjoys a happy medium in between. This being said, I consider myself and average-proficient writer.

If I could communicate with any country in the world, it would be Sweden. I believe that my deepest ancestral roots lie there, if not in Germany. I researched Sweden a lot when I was in elementary school. I wish I remembered more about it, besides the fact the their meatballs are delicious. If I was talking to the Swedish government right now, I would ask them some questions like, "What is the name for your currency?," and "What style of governing do you practice?" I could probably get this stuff off the internet, but that isn't as productive as getting the answers firsthand.

Well, it's Wednsday and I have to write a post about anything in particular... the problem is, I don't have any one thing on my mind right now. I guess I do have one thing... I watched a box set of my new favorie anime series, Death Note. It's about a high school senior in Japan named Light Yagami. He is one of the smartest kids in the country, but he is bored with his life and disgusted with all the crime in the world. He is sitting in class one day, looking out the window, when he sees a notebook drop from the sky. He picks it up when class is over. It has the words "Death Note" printed on the front, and he is intruiged by it. He opens the notebook and finds directions for its use. 1.) Whoever's name is written in this notebook... shall die. At this point, Light laughs to himself and puts the notebook back on the ground. He goes back to get it however, and tests it a couple of times. After he finds out that the notebook DOES work, he starts writing names of criminals in an attempt to rid the world of bad actions. Basically, he's trying to make it so no one will do bad things ever again, and he plans to reign over the new realm as a god. Light is later visited by a Shimigami, A god of death. This Shimigami, named Ryuk, dropped his Death Note into the human world on purpose, because he was also bored with the realm he was residing in. This is only a description of the first episode, however. As it progresses, The story gets more twisted and sinister, as Light starts showing his true, bloodthirsty self.

Christmas vacation...

Well, I have to write a post about what I did over my Christmas vacation. This was actually a great Christmas, in fact. On Christmas Eve, I did a scripture reading during my church service. Later,we had the party at my Aunt Joann's house. Imagine this: 20 adults and 20 little kids packed into a house with maybe 200 sq. feet of available space, and you have our annual Christmas party. Christmas morning was even better. Some of the presents that I got from "Santa" were a workout bar, new clothes that fit me awesome, and a stocking full of goodies. My Aunt Joellen and Aunt Joann knew exactly what to get me. Aunt Joellen got me a box full of food, and my Aunt Joann gave me a half gallon of eggnogg, (My absolute favorite drink,) although she says she forgot to get my present and she will take me shopping in a couple weeks. I was happy with just the eggnog, though. New Years was fun, because I had a friend over to celebrate it with. The last three days were pretty uneventful...
