Welcome to the inner-workings of my mind

Minecraft: You may know that this is my favourite game. For those of you who don’t have a look at my last post, https://presswithjess.wordpress.com/2014/04/27/minecraftin-along/ I recently (meaning like literally three days ago, Big Noob) found out how to mod it. I was EXCITED so I did what I needed to do and downloaded ATTACK OF THE B-TEAM!!! Attack of The B-Team is a really cool modpack with an INSANE amount of mods (something near 110 mods). It took a long time but I finally got to work. The downside… I couldn’t play because I had school the next day (grrrrrr…school). Other modpacks I did were: YogBox-  My favourite mod in this is the Millenaire mod. You can work alongside the villagers and eventually become their Leader (I would be awesome at it :P) . That’s about it but you know I’ll be downloading more in the near future (by that I mean when I finish this blog)

 

School: Speaking of the devil, I moved to a new school. Its my 3rd one since moving here. My last one wasn’t bad, I had friends there. But, that’s how life is right ;). I’ve been in this school for about 2 weeks now. Here is my favourite class so far:

P.A.A- This is one of my all-time favourite classes. Even though this will be my second time doing it, I LOVE P.A.A. P.A.A stands for Practical And Applied Arts. We get to learn Home-Ec and Woodshop. I’m doing Home-Ec first (hehehehehehehehe free food :P) Last time we made… CHOCOLATE CHIP COOOOOOKIES (Cookie Monster will be proud). Tomorrow we’re making Blueberry Muffins. In honesty I’ve never really liked Blueberry Muffins, but hey. Maybe mine will taste good because I know I made them.

I also have a class called Adventure Ed. It’s kinda like Phys. Ed… only better. You get to go out and explore the community and do different things. Ex: Corn Mazes.

Well, that’s all for now. Stay Tuned for my next post. And, make sure to leave a like if you like the changes in my blogs appearance (I know I do)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I learned … again… on a weekend

I learned – all through today. It was pure torture I tell you, pure torture 🙂 It was just complete anarchy.  First place, Doukhobor, set in Veregin – population of a grand total of 42. Then, Kamsack, the town near a mountain of ducks a.k.a. Duck Mountain. (At least I think it’s near there).

First I had to get up early. It’s a normal thing to do, on school days!! Not on a WEEKEND!! I’ve been doing this all weekend. At around 9 o clock , my parents dragged me along to the car ( not literally though :)) We set off.  It took about 45 minutes to an hour to get there, but we passed the time with music!! Ahh good ole music to rock and wake up your mind.

We arrived at Doukhobor National Heritage Village. The main building was locked so we called the museum.  A man came to unlock all the buildings for us.

Can you see me?

Who’s that looking in my window?

My favourite part out of all of it was when we went into the schoolhouse/banquet hall. There were a whole bunch of benches in the back and chairs in the front. I said while pointing at the benches “Poor people section” and then I pointed at the chairs and said “Rich people section” It was a hit with my parent’s……………… I guess you had to be there.  It was funny.

Benches in the back, really nice chairs in the front.

After we took a tour of Veregin – population 42 – a minute later we completed the tour.

A lot of stores look like this in Veregin

We then took off to the ‘ Garden Of Saskatchewan’ a.k.a. Kamsack. I found a house there that reminded me of a house in Mississauga. We also went to  the Kamsack museum. I saw so many things, like an Ontario College of pharmacists diploma, Old toys, old guide and scout uniforms, olden days gas pump and many more.

I could be in the Corner Gas movie!! 🙂 I’m a natural!! (Hint hint wink wink nudge nudge)

It wasn’t the weekend I was hoping for, but it was cool 🙂

Minecraftin Along

I’ve been writing about a lot of stuff lately.  I wanted to blog about something that I love to play.  And that, is Minecraft!!!

Topics that are in Minecraft that I will be blogging about are: Mods, Types of Minecraft, Biomes, Mobs, Skins and Little bios about a Minecraft YouTuber

First off though, Minecraft was made by ‘Notch’  and Mojang in 2010

Mods: Mods are various packs that enhance the Minecraft experience. Mods are only available for Pc and Xbox. There are many types of Mods. Mods are big and small. You can put all kinds of mods into your game (be careful of lag though 🙂 ) If you want to know what certain mods there are and what they do. Be sure to go on YouTube and look up mod showcases by YouTubers like: JeromeASF, SkyDoesMinecraft, MinecraftUniverse, SSundee, BajanCanadian and even more.

Disclaimer: They didn’t ask me to do this this is all me :).

There’s lots of Mods to choose from. Mods include for example: Minions Mod, Godzilla Mod, Mario Mod, Crash Mod (for pranks :P) Attack on Titans Mod and so much More!!!

Types of Minecraft:  Minecraft comes in many different kinds. There’s Minecraft for Phone, Minecraft for computer, Minecraft for IPad and Minecraft for Xbox. If there’s any more kinds of Minecraft, my apologizes. Minecraft for phone and IPad are not as great as Minecraft  for computer and Xbox. IPad and Phone are just Creative and Survival whereas, Computer and maybe Xbox have Mods, Mini-games, Servers, Creative, Survival and maybe even MORE!!! Popular mini-games include: Hunger Games, Sumotori, Teacher, Cops And Robbers and Minecraft Party (Mario Party Parody)

Mobs: Mobs are creatures that spawn throughout Minecraft. There are Hostile, Peaceful and Neutral. Some mobs like the Wolf and Ocelot can be tamed to become Dogs and Cats. Dogs assist in attacking mobs that hurt your player. Cats can assist you in warding off Creepers, Mobs that blow up upon contact. Ocelots will change skins upon taming. Horses are also tameable meaning you can ride them over terrains. Skeletons have bow and arrows which means you have to avoid the arrows in order to kill them, Skeletons drop bones that can be made into bone meal which creates grass and flowers. Spiders can scale walls and try to jump on you, punch them in the air will knock them back taking fall damage. Mobs, like players can be harmed in various ways. Zombies, Skeletons and Spiders burn upon day whereas Creepers don’t. Zombies are slow meaning you can kill them pretty easily.

Skins: Skins can be applied to your player to give it pizzazz.  The chosen skin must be appropriate or it might result in being banned. You can keep your Steve skin but, that would be boring though right? 🙂 There are skins like: Bacca (JeromeASF) Lava Creeper and an Astronaunt

JeromeASF: , What ASF means, his old channel Awesome Sauce Films, Best Friend Mitch or the BajanCanadian. Mitch is 6 days older than Jerome. Nicknames: ‘Fluffy’, ‘Pope of Power Moves’ and ‘Biggums’ (used by Mitch) Jerome is in Team Crafted with Mitch, Ryan, Ian, Quentin and Jason. His skin is a Bacca in a suit.

I have minecraft for my ipad.  I like that I can create what I want.  I like that survival gives me a sense of adventure.

I really like Minecraft as you can tell.  I hope that you read this post and become fans too.

 

 

 

 

Multiple Things in One Post

There are many things to talk about but, I can’t figure out what to talk about. So, I am going to write a little paragraph of certain things that are on my mind!!!

The Manitoba Ski Trip:

My ski trip is tomorrow. It was the 30th but because of the weather now it’s tomorrow.  When it’s to cold frostbite can happen so fast so they kept putting it off.  I’m really excited. Like I said two posts ago, it’s my first ski trip. On the other hand, I’m a bit nervous… I mean, what if I fall and break something or get left behind. But, I can’t help being so EXCITED!!!! Just thinking about the hills, the wind in my hair, the conveyor belt for the bunny hill, the chair lift and the food at lunch. It all makes me even more anxious.

8 Months:

My family and I are just wrapping up 8 months here. Sure, I miss my life in Ontario, but things are really looking up for me.  I mean just read this list of good things that have happened to me:

Getting to go to an R5 concert (I get to meet them 🙂 )

Getting a better social life

Finally getting good in Soccer

Having new friends who trust me

Going skiing for the first time in my life

Being independent… and finally

Getting a pet

After this list, I am fully positive life here isn’t so bad after all.

Going clothes shopping:

I know this is an absurd topic for my readers who know me really well… If you don’t know me really well, then let me tell you this “I HAVE NEVER LIKE GOING CLOTHES SHOPPING”. But, I guess as you get older your interests start to change. I do have to admit this … clothes can be pretty cool… My  mom who has known me my whole life, was taken aback when I asked if we could go to Stitches yesterday.  I got a pair of pants.  I also got this Sweater that looks like a lizard, it has paws, a tail and that mohawk looking thing on the head. I was impressed with mySELF cuz I have never done this great in shopping for clothes.  Everything else A+.  Clothes – ehhhhh.  My older cousins would be so proud of this achievement.
