SMART Goal Update/info (Feb 18)

Academic goal: I will do my homework to the best of my ability

I will actively work towards this goal by staying on task, working to maximum efficiency and always check DX every day no matter what.

Yeah, I’m doing better, but I haven’t completely achieved this goal.

Wellness goal: I will strive to balance my life

I will actively work towards this goal by making sure my parents aren’t the bosses of my entire life,

I failed. They’re still bossing me around. I can’t do anything about it either.

Personal goal: I will lose weight

I will actively work towards this goal by exercising more and eating less.

I completed this goal because I weighed 85 kg when I wrote this and then I weighed 1.5 kg less, so I technically achieved my goal but I want have less mass.

New Goal: Stay single until finding a respectable person I can go into a relationship with.

So far so good, though I haven’t found anyone too respectable yet.

New Goal: Pet my cat once every day

This is a wellness goal since petting cats are scientifically proven to reduce stress, which I have quite a lot of.

New Goal: Resist parent influences.

I’m failing miserably. I hope this goal can help me become independent of my parents.

New Goal: Spend more money on friends.

Just don’t judge me for this ok?

New Goal: Yell ‘I can do anything’ at annoying people.

Yeah, this is weird, but I find this a suitable way to defend myself. I don’t find the need to use this often though.1

Where should NASA focus future missions on in our solar system?

I believe that NASA should focus future missions on attempting to colonize Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moon, since we know the sun is dying and may turn into a black hole and suck up the inner planets quickly. In addition to the sun turning into a black hole, humans are also needing more living space, so we will eventually need to expand onto other planets, solar systems and galaxies.

As far as scientists know right now, there is a good amount of hydrogen beneath Enceladus’s icy surface, and hydrogen is a good sign of life. Micro-organisms are also producing carbon dioxide and methane gas, all potential supporters of life. In the near future, robots will be sent on Enceladus to search for life forms, and Linda Spliliker, the leader of this mission, claims that if they are lucky, they’ll be able to discover life forms that are large and capable of thinking.

Oneday project: TD Tactics

Cube craft TD (Tower defense) is a popular mini game that is challenging for players of all ages. The key to this game is your tactics, teammates, tower placement and teammates. I have planned out a short tutorial video for people who do not know how to play the mini game, and I got this idea due to my amazing addiction to video games. I was originally planning to make a tutorial video for ‘Call Of Duty 4:Modern Warfare’, but then I remembered it wasn’t school appropriate. Then, I decided that I am okay at Minecraft, and therefore found a server with a game that I was good at: Tower Defense. The CubeCraft server IP is

By the end of the second break, I was finished with my video and began editing the video. By the fourth break, I working on the first part of this blog post and was ready to voiceover. By 11:05, I have finished recording video and audio and have began to cut out unneeded parts to shorten the video. Before lunch, I’ve already finished the video in general and see if I can add any more text or transitions to make the video look good. I have my opinion done at 2:00 and I will have finished writing my blogpost by 3:00.

Reflecting upon the things I did today, I say I learned how difficult and long it is to make a tutorial video, since I have always wanted to make plenty of tutorial videos. I know now that a tutorial maker needs to firstly buy a good microphone should he want his voice in it, a lot of patience, and a good topic that players or internet-surfers would enjoy. They will also need to come up with ways to have the experience more enjoyable and come up with a name that gets the attention of people. I did the video and voiceover fairly well, but I believe I spent too much time on them. The challenges I ran into was finding a quiet place to record, posting the video and my battery was a huge problem, since it ran out much faster than usual. The ways I overcame the first problem was to wait for a bit and then go to a recording booth. For posting the video, it was a long process that consumed most of my time, so I got productive and wrote this while it was uploading. My battery was the hardest part. It ran out at least 2 times when I wasn’t paying attention and when other students were borrowing my charger, and my solution was to turn off as many unneeded settings as I can.

Over all, I would say I really enjoyed this oneday project, even though there is some rough spots here and there.
