Welcome back! It’s a new year, and the students of the Idea Hive are getting back into their geeky ways. I know this past summer there was tech trouble with Idea Hive and sadly, Mr. Fisher couldn’t save it. Instead, he recreated Idea Hive. It took a lot of work, but it’s back, and so are we! xD
So some of you might be wondering who I am. Well, I’m Juli, an 8th grader at JHK, and I’m 14 years old. I live in the (extremely) tiny town of Snow Lake, MB. Since it’s such a tiny town (population less than 1000 :o…), we all need something to occupy ourselves, don’t we?
My entertainment just so happens to be Minecraft!
I love this game, maybe even a little too much (*cough* I’M NOT OBSESSED *cough*)… There are so many different Mods out there for Minecraft, and my best friend Emily (her and I are probably two of the most random people you’ll meet, btw xD) and I found an awesome one called Hack/Mine (aka Hack Slash Mine). It’s really fun, and we’ve met a lot of cool people while playing it. When I think of Hack/Mine, I think of a sort of combination of Minecraft and World of Warcraft, because there’s so many different mobs, weapons, etc. We play it a lot, and that’s what takes up a majority of our time outside of school. c:
In fact, we’re going to be starting a “Let’s Play” series for Hack/Mine on YouTube soon! xD I think it’s going to be really fun, and I hope anyone who watches them enjoy our extreme randomness as much as we do. c:
Speaking of video games, we also might do some Terraria and Happy Wheels “Let’s Play” soon too^.^
But enough about video games. However amazing they are, they don’t (quite) run my life (close, though;D). I love playing basketball and soccer. Those are my two favorite sports, although I do play others. One sport I really dislike is volleyball, though. I don’t really know why, but I’ve never been a fan of it. I used to love floor hockey though. Uuuntil I got hit in the mouth with a hockey stick (extremely painful, btw. I don’t recommend it). I’m not really too eager to play anymore, although in gym and such, once I really get into the game, I’m all about it. Or at least until we finish the game. xD
I’m also a huge music fan. Yeah, I’m all about metal & rock \m/ It’s funny, because Emily pretty much loathes metal, while I absolutely love it. Both new metal and old, I love both. Metallica is my best friend. c: Along with Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Ledd Zeppelin, etc. Old rock and metal is my absolute FAVOURITE. There’s a lot of great new bands too, though (not including One Direction, sorry to the Directioners) xD A few of my favorite newer rock/metal bands are Demon Hunter, Mekanism, Chimaira, BFMV, Korn, Skillet, Rise Against, 3DG, etc.
I don’t limit myself entirely to metal and rock though. I also listen to a bit of the mainstream sort of thing. A little Eminem here, the occasional P!nk there, maybe even a bit of LMFAO sometimes. The only thing I don’t listen to is country… Funny, because when I was younger I loved country. I think what I listen to the most, though, would be video game parodies. WoW, Minecraft, CoD, Diablo, LoL, etc. You name it. I love Tobuscus’ parodies (especially the Literal Trailor ones), and CaptainSparklez & TryHardNinja’s parodies, along with L70ETC, Zharken16, Oxhorn, Nyhm, Silver Letoni, etc. That’s pretty much all I listen to when I play Minecraft or WoW, or any game, and you all know how much I play games (for those who don’t, A LOT). ^-^
So yeah, I’m a huge music person, and a huge video game (mostly Minecraft, Terraria, and WoW) addict. C:
Well, I guess that’s all. You know a bit about me now. If you keep checking in with my blog, and the Idea Hive, you’ll learn more about my friends and I. :D
Bai, guise. Cx
