If you’re stuck wondering what to blog about, I’d suggest listing some things you’re proud of or enjoyed from the first half of the school year, some things you think we’re doing really well as a community, and some things you would like to see us get better at when we come back in 2016. That’s what I’ll be doing 😉 Happy blogging!

I always get tripped out when I see your posts…I think, “Oh no, someone logged into my account and is posting accidentally as me!” And then I remember that there are two Nancy’s! I may edit my name to be Nancy T to limit confusion!
Great point! I think I’ll rename myself Nancyn00b!
LOL! Cute 🙂 I actually rarely run into Nancy’s! It doesn’t seem like a common name. I hope one day I get to meet you in NYC!!
Great! Let me know when you’re in NYC!
Happy first week of Autumn!!!! The air is chilly and the leaves are changing. And I have seasonal allergy sniffles; time for honey and oregano oil (@kingthanos‘ favorite).
I got sucked into some legally, […]
@kingthanos Loved the Dr. Dre and others! Reminded me of Straight Outta Compton! xoxo Nancy

Start this one first:
And this one immediately after:
oh, and try this one for the second verse:
This week there was a LOT of snow. On Tuesday we had a snow-day. I stayed at home and had a huge snowball fight on the roof and killed my dad. I even built a base for myself.
On Monday, I played “Different Tag” with @ryanshollenberger, @likeaboss, @kingthanos, @douglasawesome, @abramdb, and @failspy. It’s an awesome game that’s like capture the flag, tag, foam sword-fighting, and flag football all-in-one.
Today I smelled cupcakes and wished I was eating them (Next week I want to join cooking class so I can eat lasagna)!
I also played on the survival world “Ryan Shollenberger’s Beard” with @kingthanos and @ryanshollenberger. I made myself a leather tunic, leather pants, iron leggings, iron helmet and iron boots. Thanks gave me two extra iron ingots so I could make an iron sword. Thanos also made me the guard of the house! Here it is:
I watched a bunch of videos by the Diamond Minecart this week. One I really liked was about the “lucky red block” (a modded world on Minecraft).
You can craft one by surrounding a dropper with 8 pieces of redstone:
These are a few things I did this week…
-Ruined a village
-Went to the End (and learned how to get the Ender Egg)
-Fought lots of M.O.B.S. in survival mode (they eventually killed me)
-In another survival world, I went to a beach and made a little cabin with a path, which zombies and skeletons got onto to. A creeper even blew up my door!
Read Calvin and Hobbes with Ryan:
My favorite one was when Calvin broke his dad’s binoculars.
Failed to play Terraria (due to download issues):
Watched Timo play Sky Rim Elder Scrolls– he killed 5 dragons!
Today I brought in magazines to make a collage (I’m going to do this next week).
Lots of free, all-ages shows in NYC these upcoming weeks! @failspy @kingthanos @jacobcb @lillaw @abram : let’s pick one and go!

This week, I intend to…
1) Make my lunch every day
I supplemented my lunch with an El Aguilá burrito on Monday, but that’s because I was extra hungry and ate my lunch for 2nd breakfast.
2) Have only one serving of caffeine per day
Coffe in the morning on non-training days, and NO Explode pre-training in the evening- √
3) Support Jack in building a bookshelf [we have to buy a new T-square Monday]
After getting a new T-square, @shadowjack and I began our bookshelf project. We cut pieces of birch plywood for the back, sides, top, bottom, and 2 shelves. After winter break, we will assemble the pieces using wood glue and screws, then sand the whole thing smooth before (maybe) sealing the wood with a clear varnish.
4) Go to see the 3rd installment of The Hobbit trilogy
Despite diverging from the book’s storyline (and just plain making stuff up), Peter Jackson directed some awesome action scenes in the epic conclusion to The Hobbit trilogy. I think Dain and his brethren from the Iron Hills were my favorite:
4.5) Offer a challenge to read The Hobbit before we go to see it Wednesday
A super-full weekly schedule (much of which I agreed to participate in/hold coherence for) prevented me from even offering this at set-the-week– this was a good decision in hindsight.
5) Hold coherence for Geoguessr [Tuesday]
@abbyo and I got the highest score in the history of ALC NYC this week! We scored over 4,000 point in the first 4 locations, and approximately 3,500 on our final guess for a whopping score of 22,098!!!
Want to challenge us? Try here: https://geoguessr.com/challenge/PdmVLz0OVRO3VCwD
6) Participate in Wikitrails [Friday w/Lorax if there is enough interest]
No Lorax this week… I guess he is hibernating upstate =)
7) Analyze two hip-hop songs with @kingthanos
Again, this was an AWESOME hour spent with @kingthanos. Check out what we listened to this week: http://ryanshollenberger.agilelearningcenters.org/2014/12/18/hip-hop-lyrical-analysis-1218/
8) Schedule and facilitate a culture committee meeting re: restructuring clean-up jobs
We met today to review job tasks and solidify our jobs now that @kingthanos, @failspy, and @AgileAlfie have joined us full-time. In addition to my stated intentions, here are some of the other things I accomplished this week…
-Sports Chats with Luca (including reviewing and updating our playoff predictions)
-Summerhill Philosophy, offered by @failspy
-PokéChat w/ @timotree
-Contacted @dimeglio to update me on the IP change for #NOCHEATS, then went on an expedition and found an Ocean Temple at: -2451, 63, -1252. Enter at your own risk, @tinocrafter and the ALC Mosaic MC crew!
-Played an epic game of Werewolves DM’d by the original master, @themadhatter
With love and agility,
