What i did today we had a quick meeting and then we left for a art gallery there was one exhibit it was a lady singing and walking it was cool and we also stole stuff from children i’m gonna leave this out of context for your enjoyment 😛 anyways we left like  after 1 hour or something then we got home and did some perma culture planning for later classes learned some about what goes into composting like greens ( things full of nitrogen) and browns (stuff full of carbon) it also take water and air and there are different ways to do this also you need just the right combination or it all goes wrong also did you know a compost pile can get up to 160 degrees Fahrenheit then we talked about the movie making process for 1 hour

Q: How much work do you want to put into it

A: I want to at least get some potatoes out of it and i would like to interact with the goats (if we get any) i also want to learn how to make a garden for a community and help us all out

Q: What methods are there (describe 2)

A: 1 we have 3 bins and we move green stuff and brown stuff into one bin once it’s ready we move it to another bin when we move it , it gets a lot more air then it gets hot and finer then we move it to one more bin and it gets hotter and finer. 2 we have worms in a bin then we put food on top they come up eat poop then there poop go’s to the bottom and be comes fertilizer for plants and stuff and we harvest it                                                                                                                            Q: What methods do you want to use

A: I would like to use the 3 bin compost method because it would be one of the best for us and it looks nice

Q:Building a box or buying a bin

A: building a box

Q: where are you gonna put it

A: i don’t know exactly where but i think behind the deck

Q:how does composting happen in nature? is it natural? can we learn from it

A: well yes it is natural and how it happens is that tiny micro organisms eat the plant matter and turn it into carbon and stuff and yes we can learn from it and we already have but we still need to learn more about nature

AquaManatee’s school day blog 1/16/2015

What i did today, i started my day off with a healthy serving of imgur and then realized i should do something and ended up working more on my 3d animation project at 10 the meeting started and Drew’s friend Katie was there we set our day then played geo guessr for a little bit didn’t do well and broke the game once after geo guessr we started learning knife skills while in the kitchen i should go in to more detail but i’m gonna skim what i learned i learned how to hold a knife learned 2 basic cuts high cut and low cut we also made brine (the juice that pickles stuff) then we pickles some of the stuff we cut up after all that kitchen work we played D&D it was so fun it was only our second time playing with this story so what happened was (in a short description )  we just broke out of jail i jumped out of the jail door in a bucket expecting people but i rolled into a empty field full of flowers and grass we saw a burnt down building (we got put in prison for arson) so it was just the jail and the burnt down building no sign of human life so i walked up to the burnt down building finding nothing i decided to roll in the ash of the building so i did and i accidentally found a hatch door  so naturally instead of opening jump on it and fell through about 20 feet into a dark hole my friends came down with light and we saw dead bodies with weird slimy purple eggs in them we collected the eggs in a bag and went into the next room and we see a BIG egg its giant and red so we wanted to light it on fire to kill it but we had no fire so one of our team mates brought another one of our team mates through a portal to a alternate dimension and when he did that he paused time in our universe so my 2 team mates walk into a bloody sea with a light in the middle of it (it’s only knee deep all the way) they start treading towards the blood they get there and find a torch grab it and run and all of a sudden they hear a loud noise so they start sprinting to the portal they look back and see a giant centipede coming towards them they run even faster they are almost there but it catches up they fight it and win. they take the body through the portal with the torch in hand too they poop on the giant egg ( to make it more flammable cause it totally makes sense) and light it on fire with the torch it explodes knocking 3 of my team mates into the walls and a giant scorpion comes out 3 of our team mates knocked out we fight it i hop into its mouth and stab it then it swallows me and then i burst out of its stomach and it dies we won we killed it then  we ended our day

Today’s Schooly blog post 12/18/2014 (second to last)

First of all here Stevie got the web site up here it is ? you should check it out took us a while but it was totally worth it! next what i did today i started off my day waking up earlier then usual i woke up around 8 i was fighting to get up and i did so first accomplishment of the day after i woke up i went straight down stairs to read and ended up procrastinating and watching blender tutorials so its not that bad but i ended reading 1 of the 2 chapters i should have so not great after reading we had morning meeting after meeting we went down stairs to play minecraft with newyork alc a few people got on and i traveled away and got some supplies and i’m starting on a hidden cloud village played miencraft from about 10:30 to 11:30 and then went to book club even though i was behind one chapter no one read it all so it was not in any sort of trouble but since everyone was behind our dad changed the count to 1 chapter per week so that’s easier to keep up with (i’m not much of a reader) i’m also gonna share a little bit of the book with you guys so people would run away like slaves and servants and they would be found my native american tribes and it was so much nicer but no one would ever go back to the “normal way of living” and would not go back tot he towns and also in battles children would sometimes be taken from there white families by native Americans not sure why and the children would want to stay with the native Americans what does that say about he way they were living back then ok back to my day after the book club i went down stairs and played more minecraft i am working on the hidden cloud village and Stevie told me i can use slime blocks and pistons to get around so i think i will use those! i would just be bouncing around everywhere to get to other cloud islands after that minecraft inning i worked on Jill (the 3d printer) she is currently clogged but i managed to take out the filament so now i have to get a new one back in.. good news is that i now know the way to do that via google drives so all i have to do now is try to do it wish me luck. after TRYING to get Jill to work i made some everything flavored fudge i call it flavorplosion after i put the fudge in the fridge to harden i went down stairs and got started on my manatee this is my progress so far (down below) that is how i spent my day also my brother will be playing here at 5 pst BYE to questions now

Question: What is your favorite type of project

my favorite type of project is the one that involves my friends and a fun activity like egg drops because i love to laugh with my friends

List: what are 5 things you are grateful for this semester

1: Drew because without him this school wouldn’t be happening or wouldn’t be the same i dread the day he has to leave but i am happy a decided to come

2: Ethan, Ayesha, and Nick cause without them this school would be borning and lame and there are all very good friends

3: This school space because it has allowed us to just do school in general but even if this was in a different building i wouldn’t have my computer there and it would be hard to work on things

4: All the great ideas that lead to a awesome school year like the egg drop or going to the afk tavern

5: KonBan just for being the base of the school but now that i realize it should have been higher but whatever they are all equal
