New Glasses

July 3rd, 2008

I will get new glasses either today or tomorrow. I can’t wait! The current lens are scratched and smudged so bad that it’s hard to see, and the current frames are beat up, the paint is scraped up a lot, and one earpiece is nearly gone. My only worry is that I might trip and fall over while getting used to the new ones, heh. I can’t wait!

College

June 27th, 2008

Went to doctor for a checkup today. Apparently, to be a vet tech student, I need shots for Hepatitis, Rabies, and all that. The statement was, “You will get bitten, so get the shots and don’t worry about it.” Wheee! So I know I will get bitten, and possibly broken bones. Meh. I like animals.

Snake

June 26th, 2008

We got my snake a log/stick to climb on. His reaction as funny! For a little over a day, all he would do would be to sit in a corner and sulk. He would stare at it, nonstop. I bet he thought it was another snake. After a few hours, he lay his head on it like checking for a heartbeat. It was funny to watch him. Now, he curls up at the top and sleeps.

Horses

June 24th, 2008

I started riding horses again for the summer. So far, so good! I am riding the same horse I did last year. Her name is Sky. She will take whatever mood you throw at you and throw it right back times 10. Very fun horse to ride! I hope to do well in the show this year if I participate.

SNake

I named my snake. His name is: Bahamut

Beach

June 23rd, 2008

We went to the beach last week. Had a great time! I swam in the ocean and in a pool. I got sunburned, and cut my foot on a shell. I played at an arcade and ate ice cream. We all played minigolf. I went out probably farther than was smart into the surf. I jumped over waves-waited until a wave came up, then jumped keeping the water’s surface at the same place on my body the whole way through the wave. I faceplanted into a wave when I slipped on the sand while doing that. We found lots of crabs. We went for a night walk on the beach and I fell into a 4 foot deep hole that a family had dug…the waves had filled it with a not-packed-at-all sand. I got some T-shirts as well. I loved it!

DND version 4

June 12th, 2008

My uncles got me DND version 4. I love it! The rules are very different, though.

Spells:
Spells are no longer the vancian spell system. You can still memorize them, but its different. Some spells can be used once a day if you memorize it, some once per fight if you memorize it, and otehrs at will memorized or not, but at 80% power if not memorized.

Fighters:
There is a solid difference between sword, mace, and axe fighters…they have different abilities available.

Wizards:
No more fireball spell :(

New races…Dragonborn and Tiefling, and no more gnomes.

There are fewer “save or die” spells.

Dragons are a LOT tougher.

You can do more with your turn.

Bards, barbarians, and monks are gone.

Warlock class!!!

New rules for disenchanting and enchanting magic items.

I love it!

Ocean Island

June 10th, 2008

I’m spending next week at a beach house by Ocean Island. It’s on the border between the Carolinas. The beach house is right by the waterfront, so on good days we can go swimming. I think it will be a LOT of fun! Going swimming at the beach, woohoo!

Pet Snake

June 10th, 2008

I got a pet snake. Having trouble naming him, however…anyone have ideas? I got him several weeks ago, and still no name. Open to ideas! Help!!!

Snake

June 6th, 2008

I have a pet Ball Python that Mom and Dad gave me as a graduation gift. I love it very much! I like to let him sit on my shoulder or neck while i play compute, and he seems content to do that as well. I also find it strangely amusing ot watch him drink. We feed him on Sundays, and he eats small mice. I love the way it feels when he crawls along my arm. I LOVE MY SNAKE!!!!! Although, I do need to name him.
