New Server

So after i was playing with Yvonne for a few days i actually got invited by other friends to join their new server and we are quite a few people on there. Yet i have built some different farm (sugarcane, melon, wheat, chicken) an underground stripmine and an xp farm. The xp farm was the most i used today, just watching some videos and from time to time killing all the zombies that spawned is the way to go. I am still hoping for a fortune pickaxe. The first time i hit lvl 50 i got a pickaxe with efficiency IV which is about the worst thing you could get with that high level.

Yvonne is a brave girl

Today Yvonne gets her eyes fixed with a laser and she will be blind for a day. She had the surgery earlier than expected and she is home already. She is still feeling pain, but has 4 friends that are with her and helping her with stuff she cannot do while being blind. Important is that she rest a lot now and i hope that she has no complications so that she may be blind for longer than normal. I think tomorrow she should slowly recover and be able to see already again.

Today i cooked 可乐鸡 for the third time and it tasted exactly how i like it, sweet, spicy and hot. After failing the first time i cooked it, i learned how much coke to use and now it is just awesome. I was alone at home, so i cooked fewer chicken drumsticks (which do quite as fine as wings). Because i had less it also was ready faster and there wasn't more coke sauce left than i wanted to, the perfect amount for the chicken and for the rice to give it taste and make it spicy with the chilli. I really cannot cook, but this i learned quite fast =) Well at least for my taste, how others will like it i have to figure out in future.

Excitements in the air

the results for my second try on the analysis exam are out, but no-one cares to make a photo to upload the scores. What i do know is that i failed the first try by a long range. i scored 28% of the 50% i had to pass. This time it looks a lot better and i am pretty confident that i passed this time, but then again you can never be sure and that's what scares me. So I'm excited and worried and hope that anyone will upload the scores soon or at least can look mine up, before i explode out of excitement. Today also others had to redo the linear algebra exam, which i luckily survived before already. I hope one of the people who wrote linear algebra made a photo of the analysis scores. Let us hope for the best.


So i passed the exam! I have 40.5 points of 80, which means i barely made it over the goalline, but i did and that means i will not have to worry about that anymore and can instead worry about what is to come in my second semester =)

Minecraft Saturday

So yesterday Yvonne played with me minecraft during my day and her evening to night and it was amazing. I got my alarm clock set at 9am so that we can start playing soon after. We started in our server you had already before. I continued building the house mostly and Yvonne was adventuring in caves and using the strip mine to get more resources. I finished the second floor of the house, added a balcony, changed the entrance a bit, but really wanted to have some glowstone for lighting purposes, so we both took a trip to the nether. i made a bridge across the lava lake, she was standing on the ground waiting for me to destroy the glowstone and she was gathering what was falling down. Back at our house i finished the entrance and lighting and started with the roof top. Before Yvonne said she wanted a swimming pool inside the house so i decided to build it on the roof and there it started. It took long to fill everything with a source block, just to realize that the pool is dripping through the house. So instead i changed the floor to half steps so it won't leak through, but still looks the same, the whole house was under water for a while and when i changed the half steps to double half steps i realized that nothing changed, water can also drip thru these, so everything was just work for nothing and i just shortened the pool which quite sucked. Then we made a break, she ate dinner and i ate breakfast.

Half an hour later we were about to continue and decided to start a survival map instead. Yvonne proudly announced to me that she prepared and watched YouTube tutorials about survival and learned some recipes. We decided to make a bet: If i die one time, she has to write a blog entry on my blog and if she dies 5 times the other way around; We do not really help each other, only trading and we both have to survive for ourselves. So i changed the world and some options to set up a new server. We both spawned in the middle of an ocean with big lack and no sign of land. Okay, that was quite a fail, i thought and deleted the world file to make another random world. We both spawned in a snow forest and i decided to travel for a few hundred meters, so we won't be directly next to each other. I gathered some would and some stone and even found a bit of surface iron. Badly i didn't find any coal though and with the traveling before i had no time to set up a base for the night. I had some pork chops gathered and also already an iron breastplate, so i decided to just walk around at night. Badly it started with 9 creepers in my sight and didn't really get better until daytime. Lots of monsters and they even hurt me pretty bad, but i survived the night. Yvonne was doing a lot better than i have anticipated, she said she never was in real danger, she already set up a little base and started mining during the night. The next day i continued a wheat farm i started before and also gathered iron in a cave i set my first base in. It didn't take long to have my first complete set of iron stuff and i went out to gather clay. I gathered lots of clay some jungle saplings and started a mine into a giant cave i also found diamonds in, in the few hours later. I was about to make my first tree-house, when Yvonne died for her first time. She was shot by a skeleton. Nothing to bad, but then she wanted to get inside her home and two spiders blocked her path and killed her. She asked for help and i killed the two spiders because she was sounding extremely mad and then she realized that all her stuff was gone already. To make her play further and not be angry all the time i gave her food, an iron pickaxe and sword. Later i even gave her a map as a present and some seeds i had, because my farm was becoming too large. While i was making my tree-house Yvonne really wanted to stop playing, the spiders really ruined her gaming mood, which was sad, because it was an amazing gaming day after all.

9AM Good Morning Minecraft

So today is a special day, i set my alarm clock to rush to the shower, but not to go to university, because Thursday i finally had my last exam. Today i set my alarm clock to play with Yvonne. We have 9 hours at least in which we can play minecraft, i think it may be a bit much for her, but if not i wonder how much we can build in that time, how much we can adventure and how much she will learn :)

Next vacation i do not want to stay alone at home all the time, i plan to make a real vacation far far away in china for at least a month, so i get to see a bit of the world instead of sitting on my chair for 16 hours a day.

New Chinese Book

So i have a new chinese book now that teaches me how to write characters, something i never really learnt before and it may be time to do. it feature 170 basic words which takes a lot of writing one character over and over again so its finally stuck in your head. Also it may help me recognize words that i see more easily.

worst week of my life

i just got worse and worse news that are all going to make my life extremely difficult. There is no way around it, i just have to face how badly i fucked everything up. the last two days after two bad news i said to a xiaomao that tomorrow i will get another bad news and yeah today i got the worst news of these 3 days. By far the worst... I just hope everything goes well somehow. God really does love complex irony.
