Fencing Camp

July 9th-July 14th I went to fencing camp. I already knew fencing so the camp acted as practice. On the first day, we did stations and dodge-ball.  The stations were made to teach the people who didn’t know how to fence the basic attacks. Here is a list of the very simple moves we did on the first day:

  • First position(make a backwards L with your feet if you’re a righty. An L if you’re a lefty)
  •  En Garde (same as First Position  but with a space between your feet and you should bend your knees)
  • Extension(put your arm out)
  • Lunge (extend your arm out then lunge your frontfoot forward)
  • Recovery(after a lunge of some sort, pull your front foot back and un-extend your arm)

The second day we did the stations again. We did these moves:

  • Parry 4(Put tip diagonally pointing at roof and move across body)
  • Parry 7( Same as parry 4 but  with tip down)
  • Parry 6(Make a C from the bottom up)
  • Parry 8 (make a C from the top down to your knees)

We Also did Star Wars Day. Star Wars Day is where you do challenges to level up. I got to the highest level.

The third day we did station and did a disengage.  A disengage is where you go around the blade when they parry you. We also did a tournament. We did games in the second half. Mostly wizard and dodge-ball. Also 2 rounds of sharks and minnows.

On the 4th day we did stations that reviewed moves as well as fenced. On the second half we did theatrical fencing and made skits.

The last day we again practiced, fenced, and did more games.  We did a skit for the moms and then camp was over.

Pool Party

7/15/2012 I went to a pool party. It was a private pool. The pool had 2 waterfalls, 1 water slide, a spa, and a gas fire. There were 2 water slide pads and a floating bed as well.

When we got there I thought it was going to be a  simple house pool, but when we got to the yard I saw the fancy pool. I went into the water to get use to the temperature then did the slide 5 times. Then sat in the spa for 10 minutes. After the spa I laid on the bed. Then Another kid from the party stood on it so I pushed her off and tries to stand and we started playing around.  I got into the Spa quickly and she mad an air bubble. I went back in and tried to breathe with it. It seemed to work but I think we pushed it above the water. After 4 hours of playing it was diner.

For dinner we had peas, potatoes, corn, and steak. For dessert brownies and cookies.

We sat around the gas fire for a little and then jumped back in. I went down the water slide a couple more times and then we played with the water-bed.  I sat in the Spa for another 10, minutes then got dressed and went home.

Las Vegas

On the week of July 1, 2012 my family and me went on a trip to Los Vegas.  We stayed at Caeser’s Palace. The hotel had 4 public pools.  It also had a private pool (to get in you have to rent a cabana).  It had an adult only pool, too.   We were  going to stay in the Roman Tower but we got upgraded to the Augustus Tower. The Augustus Tower has a shower, a jet bath, a toilet with it s own room, and a two sink counter in the bathroom. In the main room it has two queen-sized beds, a large window with manual opening vents, a chair with a footrest, a table with 4 chairs, and an end table. The first night we settled in.

The next day we visited the pools. We went in the Temple and Neptune pools. The pools had a snack bar and a pool bar(adults only pool). Near when we were going to go back up I got a fruit platter. We got to the hotel room around 3:30 pm. We had left at 11:00 am.

For diner we went to RAO’s . At RAO’s I had clams and lamb. When we finished our meal, my sister, my mom, and I went outside and found a place to sit around the pool. When we finished dinner, my dad, my sister, and I went to the Bellagio to see the fountain show. Then we went to the Mirage and saw the volcano show. Then we went back to our room and went to sleep.

The next day we went to the pool for an hour. Then around diner time we saw the Tournament of Kings at the Excalibur. We sat in the Dragon section. I’m not going to tell what happened: You see for yourself. After the show, we went back and got ready for bed.

The last day we packed up and left the hotel. We drove to Red Rock Canyon and hiked.  That was the end of our trip.

More on roblox.

On my first post, I got a lot of comments on Roblox. So, I have decided to make a post on Roblox.

Roblox is everything the scripts allow (scripts are items that decide a behavior).  You can either fly high or dig underground.  All these places need builders though. Scripting and model building requires practice. I only can do basic scripts.

In Roblox, you can also join groups. Groups are Robloxians (People On Roblox) gathered together. Groups can be Fan Clubs, Industry Workers, Academies. and War Groups. Fan Clubs are where Robloxians talk about what the Fan Group is for. Industry Groups are where people join to work for others. Academies are usually add-ons for training to be in a group.War groups are groups that go to war. These groups are where you will find the most group places.

A List of my most active groups:

  1. Ro-West Airlines(Industry)
  2. WIJ (pronounced “Why”)(War)
  3. Cardian Empire(WAR)
  4. WIJ Shock Troopers Academy.(Academy for WIJ shock troopers)(to get in to the academy you must be operative+ and have 3,000 KO)(Not that hard)

WIJ is a whole corporation of groups. WIJ is also in the Virdian Alliance, The most equal and stable alliance made. The Virdian Alliance is also well-known.

With all these places you should get money out of them right? Well, You do NBC(Not builders Club) games get you 10 tickets each visit. BC games get you 10 robux each visit. You may also add VIP as a BC in both NBC and BC games to earn a little extra money by selling the t-shirt. On Roblox, Nothing is inpossible.

My Interveiw

On June 25, 2012, I had an interview with Silvio Canto and Barry Casselman.  It was interviewed on a Blog-Talk-Podcast called Canto Talk.  (Click HERE to listen the podcast — I am on the last 15 minutes).  It was about 15 minutes. Before the interview and in the interview I was nervous, but after I was just fine. The reason  I was  interviewed is because I started this blog. They asked me who did I think was going to win the election. I don’t know much about the government and politics right now but my best guess is Mitt Romney.

They Asked me about any sports I did. I answered Fencing. I added that I also Fenced once a week every week.

After fencing Silvio pointed out that my mom said I liked history. I answered,”Yes.” Then Silvio asked what type of history. I replied,” Ancient history.” Then he replied,”Like what?” I answered,”Rome.” Then I told them why. The reason why is because I’m part Romanian. Hear the rest by going to the site that I linked to above.

The Del Mar Fair

I went to the Del Mar Fair on the 18 of June. My Grandmother, Sister, and I Got there at 10:30 So we ha to wait a half an hour to Get in once in we had to wait an hour till the rides opened. In that time period we had a snack.

When the rides finally opened we went on the Farris Wheel first, Then Skyflyer(Don’t go on it its to short), After that I went on the log ride, Then we did Hang glider, And finally Windstorm.

My Favorite ride was windstorm. Windstorms supper rough, super fast, and VERY Curvy. It is a very intense ride and i do not recommend this for a lot of people. It was the most intense ride I have ever been on. Here are some stats about windstorm.

Windstorm stats:

  • Maximum angle: 75 Degrees
  • Maximum speed: 55 MPH
  • Minimum Hight to ride: 50″
  • Maximum Hight to ride: 6′ 5″

Here is a list of my Favorites 1=best 5= Worst

  1. Windstorm
  2. Log Ride
  3. Hang glider
  4. Farris Wheel
  5. Skyflyer

The reason Skyflyer was the worst is because it was way to short.

What Ended the day was an order of blooming onions. They were good but i got an Ache in my belly.

My 3 Favorite Video Games

My first favorite video game is Roblox. Roblox is an Online Multiplayer Game. There is a lot to do on Roblox. You can Build Places(Games) And play with others in their, yours, or somebody elses game. You can also make groups as a member and join groups as a member or non-member. Some groups require manual acceptance.Other may require a membership. You can Play Roblox by clicking here. If you see a character named FluffyRaja say,”Hi” Or send a friend request.

My second favorite video game is Star Wars Clone Wars Adventures. Once again its an online multiplayer game.  There is no “Point” You just want to finish the combat campaigns and master the others. Go into the multiplayer versions of the games.  Currently My favorite mini game is Glactical forces where you build and upgrade unit production factories/barracks to destroy your enemies HQ. You can be the Separatist Droid Army or The Grand Republic Army. The Republic’s infantry are better, but the Droid Army has better mid-armored unites. Also the Droid Armies barracks  is cheaper, but the Republic’s Mid-armored factory isn’t cheaper. I am Nammed Skeeto ServoCruiser in Clone Wars Adventures.

My third favorite game is Wizard101. Wizard101 is, too, a multiplayer game.The point in wizard 101 is to defeat all the evil forces and level up to get new spells, better clothes, and access to new items. The Highest Level I know of is level 72. I am, right now, a level 40 life, But i am working on a storm guy named Blake Stormfordge. He is a level 25.
