It has been a long time since my last post,but I should be able to post now.Recently our new puppy,Cinder weighed about 75 pounds!She is now also pretty much house trained and is out of her cage more often then not.She is also starting to take her first walks around the neighborhood.

We have finished the unfinished side of our basement and turned it into a gaming room. We have TONS of games It almost cant fit on one shelf! Some games last and hour, some last for more than half a day, some are cooperative games,some are strategy games,some are simple games, and we also have very complex and challenging games. One of my favorite games is called Descent it is a very long and complex game that can get your heart racing! I have also recently been into paintball it is really fun it gets your adrenalin pumping.It is nice to shoot people and not get in trouble :). currently my gear is hanging above the floor in the game room it is hanging on the ceiling so that no small children will reach the gear.

Ice hotel

Yesterday I was learning aboout Sweden and found out about the coolest thing ever! Once a year in a city call Jakasjarvi a bunch of archetects come to make a life size hotel made of ice!Whats really cool is that you can even sleep in a bed made of entirely ice every thing is ice! I also found out that the arora borealis can be seen from a hotel window (if you can stay awake long enough).

Last Saturday I tested for my blue belt it is the sixth belt and I only have four belts until black belt. It was quite exciting! My instructor told me I needed to write an essay on self control.I ended up two days before testing.Here it is:
Self Control
There are seven tenants of taekwondo they are: Honor, Humility, self-control, indomitable spirit, courtesy, integrity, and perseverance. All these tenants are extremely important to follow in our daily lives.
Self control is a very important tenant. The definition of self control is: restraint of ones actions, emotions or desires. To me Self Control means that you are able to restrain yourself from doing things out of desire or want. Just because you really want to do something doesn’t mean you do it.
Taekwondo has helped me with my self control quite a bit. Before taekwondo I would eat doughnuts, cream filled bagels, or any other pastries at any chance I would get. Now that I have practiced my self-control I don’t eat as many sweets as I had. An example is: when I deliberately turned down a cream cheese Danish even though I really, really wanted one. There are also two other ways I demonstrated self control they are, restraint of my actions or the restraint of my emotions. Another way that I demonstrated self control is when I controlled my desire to yell when my sister was pestering me
So, if it wasn’t for Taekwondo I really don’t know how well I would be controlling my desires, actions, or emotions. So I encourage others to become martial artists because it helped me a lot with my self control!

I thought it sounded goofy but it was still fine the way it was!

Not too long ago I went to a pottery class and made two things a leaf plate and a ladybug bank.It took 3 steps to make sure that my ladybug bank actuly look like a bug and not a colorfull glop of clay.First I have to make my ladybug the right shape and bake it in the kilm.Second I need to paint my ladybug.Third I need to put a coat of clear stuff that makes the bug smooth.Finally I have to put it in the kilm once more. When it comes out my lady bug is finished!

PS:pictures are coming soon!

You might notice the banner for freerice on the right hand side.If you dont know what it is then click on the banner.There are many diffrent subjects, I have done all of them. I have been playing freerice for 3 years now and I have donated a total of over 70,000 grains of rice and I feel so good that I have helped the hungry while learning and practicing things. :)

A year ago we sprayed the foyer for ants apparently they came back. Because every time I see food on the floor there are ants hundreds of ants and all I can do is smash them with my thumb.Funny thing is that my thumb smells like coke afterward!I just hope they dont come into my room I cant imagine what it would be like if I had ants in my bed!
