Chocolate Muffin

 1 1/2 C SR Flour.
 1 C sugar.
 1/3 C cocoa.
 1/2 oil.
 1/2 milk.


So mine turned out darker than the others - I believe i either mixed too much or instead of 1 sugar I did half :\ . The result was a flat, chewy top, in my opinion, is yum. I'd totes have a ice tea or iced coffee with that. Would I use this recipe again? Naw, I think making a cake is easier and less dishes.

Macaroni and Cheese

Step 1: Macaroni
Boil macaroni (1:2 cups water per cups macaroni) - Till soft
Drain using colander under cold water
Step 2: White sauce
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup flour
Mix in milk till thick, watery texture (add cheese)
Step 3: Combine
Combine boiled macaroni with the white sauce, mix, then place in tray
Put in oven at (pre-heat) 200°C for 15 mins

So i was working with myself, and my main focus was making sure nothing would burn. I also didn't want to fall behind, so multitasking. I've made mac n cheese before, but it's not really a dish I'd cook when I'm hungry or something, in other words I'd rather tomatoes and pasta.

My Holiday - Chill

My Holiday

I had a good Holiday. Kinda wished it lasted longer, but the experience was fun nonetheless. When the holidays started, I didn't really do much but chill at home and browse the web.
Though, once my cousin started his holidays, we all went out to my aunties house in Kaikohe to celebrate Christmas - and at the end of the day, me and my sibling went to my nans house which is just a bit further from Kaikohe.

My nan adopted a dog, called Putty (Patch), which was so small when we first met it - Now, He's about the same height as me if it were to stand up on its back legs. He's huge. Also, while we were at my aunties, she had a little dog with white fur named Max, aka, Psycho dog. He's a biter, but it's playful - and surprisingly I'm not allergic to him. YAYAYY

We stayed up there for 2 weeks - doing absolutely nothing but cook, drink tea, chill, and clean. I also watched some t.v, this show that my nan watches everyday after work, which isn't that bad. The 'American Pickers'. She also has a sweet tooth for fruit cakes, and she makes a really good steam pudding.

After that, we came back to Auckland, and it was HOT. One thing that I miss from up there, the cold.
So, after coming back, I chilled at home, my home cannot live without my brother, and did my normal. Which usually consists of... chilling. I played dnd, wrote things, I actually don't think I did much but chill - except yesterday - yesterday was death in an oven.

Goals... I just wanna set things up, maybe like my room, a way of income, ways to look after my niece, maybe boost my confidence a bit more - need to find a way to make income that doesn't involve getting a job. And just do better at school, just school in general, because i did a school fail last year.

Huriata - YikeBike: Business/Economics

I studied an innovative product, the ‘YikeBike’, in class today! It’s a non-pedalling, fast and easy to used bike that you can fold up and carry.

It’s main advantage is being capable of travelling long distances with little to use effort and energy. You are able to sit up as if it were a moving chair (literally), it can swivel and move smoothly; and it can prevent being stolen from a thieve with its particular locks on the wheels.

Personally, I don’t like it and I wouldn’t I support it, all I could say to the person who made it is, “Kudos!”. I wouldn’t recommend it to friends or family - it all depends. And I predict it to have small sales because everyone would either have a car… or a bike, a normal one.

Maze Game and Flappy Bird - DigiTech: Huriata

What types of blocks and codes did you use in the games.

I used many demand blocks, like; direction blocks; sound blocks; If blocks; display blocks and repeats.

What did the blocks and codes enable you to do with the Games?

By putting movement blocks, sound/display blocks and if blocks with in the repeat block, it enables the game to play in a certain way to prevent failure/death. With the movement block, the character is able to move, the direction block allows the character to face or turn in a different direction. When put in a repeat block, it will continue to play through those commands until stopped. The display and sound block let you add characteristics to the game. 

What did you learn from this exercise?

I learnt how to use this program and how to make codes work... to some degree.

SOS - Entrepreneurial Skills: Huriata

My strongest entrepreneurial skills that I have are: Creativity, independence and work-ethic.

My comment of being creative in my own way is having many ideas, to complete something or make something creatively is fun to me; It's the best way to be productive in my opinion. For this skill, I ranked myself at an 'A', the reason I gave an 'A' was because I do have a lot of ideas, and many appreciate them. More of the artistic spectrum. 

I can be very independent, depending on the situation. I can work by myself for long periods of time  and complete/ almost complete work, and I can do most things own my own given the tools. I rated myself at a 'B', meaning I may struggle from time to time and need someone to lean on.

Work-ethic really depends on my attitude. I put a lot of my time and effort into art/drawing rather than academic work. For that, I rated myself at a 'B', this is because I make poor decisions for what I should be putting work into; such as the two listed.

My weakest skill has to be self-responsibility. Meaning I can't be responsible for myself, for a lot of reasons. - 'C'
