Writers block, and Christmas!

Sheesh, I have writers block like nobody's business.

So I decided I would tell everyone my two favorite Christmas presents and then ask you what yours is (please respond with a comment that would be SO appreciated)

Favorite Gift #1

Luna Guitar. 
My family and extended family all pooled their money together to buy me this really beautiful Luna guitar (very high end) this is definitely my favorite gift because my Uncle used to own it and it really is a beautiful guitar. 

Here are a couple pictures.


So as you can see definitely a beautiful work of art and I am very proud to now own this instrument. 

Favorite Gift #2
Drone. 
Drones are so cool! The first drone I got was a small little "Nemo" drone that I decided to return and get something a little higher quality. What did I come up with??????????? *drum roll please* I settled on the "Sky Viper streaming drone" as the drone for me. Cool name huh? Sounds fearsome when you tell everyone what kind of drone you have. 


Here is a picture of my super cool drone. 
Pretty cool looking huh? 
Well that's all for today folks. I did my part by writing a post for everyone to read, now I want you to do your part and tell me what YOU got for Christmas and what your favorite gifts were. 
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my posts I seriously appreciate it. If you like what your reading please check out my other posts and if you are still hooked you can check out my up and coming YouTube channel with the link below.

The Woman That Saved The World As We Know It

What woman single handedly saved the Jewish race? What woman single handedly saved our forefathers and their children? Michelle Obama? Heck no, I am talking about Pharaoh’s daughter. The one that pulled Moses out of the nile river. Exodus 2: 5-10 says, Then Pharaoh’s daughter went down to the Nile to bathe, and her attendants were walking along the riverbank. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her female slave to get it. She opened it and saw the baby. He was crying, and she felt sorry for him. “This is one of the Hebrew babies,” she said.
Then his sister asked Pharaoh’s daughter, “Shall I go and get one of the Hebrew women to nurse the baby for you?”
“Yes, go,” she answered. So the girl went and got the baby’s mother. Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this baby and nurse him for me, and I will pay you.” So the woman took the baby and nursed him. 10 When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him Moses, saying, “I drew him out of the water.” 

What does this have to do with saving history as we know it? Well…if Moses had not liberated the Jews from Egypt in about 1333 B.C. (Before Christ) then one of three things MAY have happened. 
First, the Jews may have been killed by the Egyptians when they grew in number so much that the Egyptians would not have been able to control them anymore. After all that’s why they were enslaved in the first place right? The bible says that the Jews were enslaved by the Egyptians when they grew in number enough that Pharaoh grew scared that they would take over Egypt. 
Second, the Jews would have grown in number to an extent where they over ran Egypt and just took over and Egypt today would be completely different from the Egypt we know today. 
Third, the Jews would have attempted escape on their own and either been massacred by the Egyptians or they would have escaped and scattered all over the world. 


Hopefully you can agree with me that Pharaoh’s daughter even though we do not know her name was singlehandedly one of the most, if not the most influential woman in the history of the world.

Cowboys,Classes, and Flipping

This is just going to be a post involving a couple random interesting things. 

#1. Cowboys 
Man…The streak is over… Last night the Cowboys lost for only the second time this year 10-7 to the New York Giants. Thats the second time this season that the Cowboys have lost to them by 3 points or less. It’s so frustrating. 

#2. Classes
Classes are finally ending for the holidays. There it just one thing barring the way to Christmas break…EXAMS! 
But the bright side is after exams comes Christmas so it’s not the bad.

#3. Gabe….
Ok so my little brother loves doing gymnastics, and yesterday he was practicing back handsprings with dad and then he just backed up and did a really big flip onto a mattress we had for him to flip onto. It is pretty cool to see him doing crazier and crazier stuff. Here is the video 
We had him do it a second time so we could video it so it was not quite as cool. 

#4. That moment when…..
Ok you all know you have been waiting for it so here it is…
That moment when you think your getting salted caramel tea so you put salted caramel syrup in it then you drink it and realize it was actually peach lime tea and you can’t pour it out so you drink it and it is absolutely awful, it tastes exactly how it sounds. 

Ok folks that’s all for today! 
C-Ya!

IQ Testing is fun!

Have you ever wondered what your IQ is?
I have wondered what my IQ is for a long time, it wasn't till yesterday that I actually sat down and Googled "Free IQ Test" I had no idea you could do it online and for free.

Here are the ones I took, I have taken a grand total of 4, On the first one I scored 96, on the second I scored 123, on the third I scored 104-120, and on the last one I scored 109.

Not very consistent huh? Yeah not really. I think the most accurate one was probably the fourth one, on all the others the answers don't change and they are pretty simple. On the 4th? Oh boy, it was WAY harder than the others. If you want a fairly accurate IQ number for yourself I recommend taking  this one  http://www.myiqtested.com I really had to think about it and work stuff out.

Just FYI no taking notes you have to do it all in your head otherwise it would not be testing how smart you are it would be testing your note taking and how well you work problems out in your head.

I want everyone that reads this to take this test ( http://www.myiqtested.com ) and then comment back to me your scores and we can compare notes!

Cheers!

That moment when...
Your iceskating and you start to fall and you decide to make it look really cool and land in the classic Iron Man pose...

Country Hicks and Cowboys

So it's interesting to me how many people automatically associate people that live 20 minutes from a big (ish) town that live on land with country hicks or rednecks.

This is strange to me because if you saw me in a crowd of people I bet no one would go "wow I bet that guy is a country hick. Why? Because I am a normal person... Just like any other Texan. The only exception being if I do decide to dress up in my boots jeans and really big hat, but not everyone that wears those things is a country hick.

Here...Is a country hick

*Silence* *Crickets*

Everyone probably just went 

Now whats the difference? Most people that know me even a little bit know I would never do anything of what that guy is doing...Why? Because I'm normal, I'm not a country hick! 


This is me...Normal everyday guy that you may see walking around, perfectly normal.


Anyone see anything hicky about me? Good, because there isn't. And in case that is not enough to convince you that country does not equal hick then please do listen to this definition from google, a person who lives in the country, regarded as being unintelligent or provincial. So maybe the first part describes us...me a little but not the second part or you don't know me at all, but if you don't this should convince you that I'm not dumb... (I have a 4.0 in college) ((Yes I have taken 2 college classes.))



So yeah hopefully that should show anyone that thought that if you lived in the country on land that you were a country hick that you were mistaken. 



On a less serious note...THE COWBOYS ARE 11-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
Lastnight the Cowboys took down the Vikings 17-15 



That moment when...
You don't have a that moment when to share... 
Oh wait, no I'm just trying to convince myself not to say it...
Ok fine...
I lost a debate....  *Silence... crickets*

What I do in Speech and Debate

Ok guys so if you read my post  "Been a While" here, then you probably remember me talking about starting Speech and Debate again (I did it last year). So I thought I would take some time to tell everyone about what Speech and Debate is, and what I will be competing in.

First of all I compete in STOA, which is one of three main main homeschool speech and debate leagues, the other two being NCFCA and NSDA. Why did my family choose STOA? I HAVE NO CLUE but I am glad we did because of all of the really cool people that I have met and already knew that I get to see more often!

So, what events am I competing in you may be wondering? Well that I can answer. This year (season) I am competing in Lincoln Douglas Debate (I will go into more detail on each individual event a little later), Cold Reading, and quite possibly a Duo with Elaine Csoros (who is really good!).

Actually, the entire Csoros family is pretty cool. Last year her older brother, Mark, was my Team Policy Debate mentor. He is, like, boss at everything! Elaine also has an identical twin sister named Connie who is doing TP (Team Policy) this year and last year. She is really good as well (especially at Apologetics).

So, now about each individual event.

My main event will be LD (Lincoln Douglas). As I said in a previous post, LD is basically Philosophical debate unlike TP, which is Evidence based. The resolution this year (what we are debating) is;

 Resolved: The needs of the public ought to be valued more than private property rights.

That's a really good resolution. About the most common case that people are running is Taxes (which is what I am running because it is really good), because Taxes are an example of when you relinquish your private property (your money) in order to be protected by a military, and police force and to have a judicial system and a public school system (all public NEEDS not WANTS).

So yeah, LD is my main event. After that comes Cold Reading. According to Wikipedia, (I know all debaters reading this are cringing but it is a good definition...just wait and see it...ok you ready to see it?)

"cold reading is reading aloud from a script or other text with little or no rehearsal, practice or study in advance. Sometimes also referred to as sight reading, it is a technique used by actors and other performers in theatre, television, and film performance fields."

Sounds fun right? Well it should be, you get to read from whatever small piece of literature they give you using different voices and accents for different people, I think it should be fun!

So yeah, that's Cold Reading. Last, and basically my wild card event that I will hopefully get to compete in, is a Duo. Most people probably know what a Duo is, basically you take a book and create a script that you and another person can act out in about 8-10 minutes. So yeah, it's pretty fun.

Anyway, that's all I am doing in Speech and Debate this year. It will be a fun rest of the season!
