A Day Spent on Minecraft

Good day to you.
Today, I spent most of the day playing Minecraft with my siblings. We have a world that we all play on together and the goal is to beat the game this summer. We’ve made quite a bit of progress. We have a ton of diamonds, emeralds, iron, and other resources. We have a portal to the Nether and we have found a nether fortress. The “goal” of the game is to defeat the Wither and then defeat the Ender Dragon. We are pretty close to defeating the Wither. Well, to building the Wither. Also, we almost found the portal to the End where the Ender Dragon lives. We have a huge house with a barn for animals and a farm. It’s a fun world. The four of us have spent a lot of time on it: mining, farming and building. I am very proud of what we’ve accomplished. Though it is kind of what I did all day.
Minecraft is a fun game. It is a a simple sandbox game where you can build so much and it is really easy to play with family. I’m not quite sure what else to say. I don’t want to bore people and my day also wasn’t super productive.
Brittan and I did go out before we started playing. We went to the bank and then we went to Target! I got a fancy adventure watch. I can’t use my phone to tell the time while I’m working because it’s unprofessional and there isn’t a clock nearby, but I now have a watch and I can keep track of the time. It’ll help me tonight. Brittan and I are going in to work soon and we’re working until closing. It’s going to be rough.
I’m hoping to finish The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer tomorrow and then I’ll post a review of it here. I haven’t written anything besides this today. My goals are going to be harder to keep than I thought. Maybe I’ll have a chance to write after I get home from work, but I doubt it.

Have a good evening everyone.

Summer Goals of 2k15

My feet in the summer grass.

Hello all and welcome to June!
It is a new month and I’ve decided to set some goals. I do not want to have an aimless summer. I have things I want to do and I will get them done.

Goal 1:

Catch up on the 50 book challenge. According to my calculations, I am 17 books behind. If I read two and a half books every week, from now until September, I will be caught up. Then I just have to read a book a week during the semester. I’m hoping this goal will help get me back in the habit of reading for fun instead of spending a lot of time on the internet.


Goal 2:

Write every day. From now until at least September, I want to get back into the habit of writing everyday. Even if it is only a small amount, I want to get back into the habit of it. I’m not talking about plain blog posts either. I want to work on my creative writing everyday.


Goal 3:

Finish Complete Immersion. Period. I have been working on this book since July 2013. It is time to finish it and move onto something else. I have other novels that I want to write, but I don’t want to leave unfinished projects laying around.


Goal 4:

Catch up on my word count goal. In January, I set a yearly word count goal of 200,000 words in 2015. I am drastically behind on this and I want to catch up. My blog posts will help beef that up along with daily writing. I can do this. It will just take work to pump the numbers up to where I want them.


Goal 5:

Keep up with this blog. I probably won’t be blogging everyday, but I put WordPress on here for the express purpose of blogging more. WordPress is easier and faster than writing everything in html on my computer and the pushing it up to the git repository and then asking Dad to push it up to the website. These posts go up automatically. It’s much easier.



So I guess that’s it for my list of goals. Five in total. It looks a bit daunting, but I’m only working five or six hour shifts at Pie Five, so I have plenty of free time to get this done. I didn’t even touch on my YouTube channels. I have really been falling behind on those. Being home for the summer with your family is distracting.

What are your summer goals? Tell me down in the comments and we can have a conversation.

I’ll talk to ya’ll soon. 😀

And I am Back to Blogging

Hello all,
I haven’t blogged in many months, but this is my third blog and I plan to keep up with it. I want to share my life and thoughts with the universe. Nowadays I usually do that in the form of a YouTube video, but sometimes that just takes way too long that’s why this is here. I got this blog together today and WordPress can be a pain so please cut me some slack if it is hard to get around for a while.
I’ve had a few blogs in the past and I will link to them in the future, but it’s late and they aren’t well organized, so it might be a while. I plan on blogging about my adventures and my life and thoughts and things. It may take a while for any quality content to appear, but that’s to be expected.
Now that most people have left out of boredom, I should probably introduce myself. My name is Alora and welcome to my blog.
Cute selife of me
I’m 17 and a senior in college. I’m starting my fourth year in the fall and I’m kind of terrified. I’m currently working a summer job making pizzas. My summer goals are to read a bunch of books. I’m trying to do the 50 book challenge this year, but I’ve fallen behind, a lot, so I need to fix that.

Also, I want to finish my own book. I have a draft of a novel that I’m currently revising and I want to get it into good shape. I haven’t worked on it since I got home from school, but whatever. I’ll start tomorrow. 😛

Other than that I want to finish unpacking my stuff from school and go to bed. I still have a few packed up boxes and I am very tired. We helped some friends move into a new apartment today. It was rough. That’s why this blog is a bit hard to understand at the moment.
Okie dokie. I’m going to finish this up, but I need a good closing statement.

‘Night nerds.
