MapleStory Private Server

A few days ago, I found myself with some spare time.  “What should I do?  Hmmmm, I know!  Let’s make a nice little private MapleStory server!”…and I did.

Creating this little private server wasn’t that hard at all, excluding the fact that I had to install another OS just in case it messed up my laptop.  The server itself took probably an hour to set up, including downloading everything, that is, if you have a nice speedy internet connection.  The main reason for this was because I wanted to see how GMs (Game Masters) work.  Now, I play with my friends, and it turns out that it doesn’t lag as much as I expected it to be.  For more information about installing a MapleStory private server, please search it up on Google, as this is deemed “illegal”.

A side note:  This is just a “play around with the settings and mess up my computer” type server.  It is not intended for an operational environment like other servers.

Why Are Social Workers at School Idiots?

I now realize why our education system in BC sucks so much: it’s because of all those social workers at schools that epic fail.  Many, but not all of them, have proven themselves as absolute idiots.  Here’s an example:

There is a social worker is in my classroom, helping a special needs student.  We are currently doing math.  The teacher explains the concept to us, and my friends and I understand it.  Five seconds later, you see the social worker walk up to the teacher.  My friends and I listen in:
Social Worker whispers, “I don’t understand how this concept works.”
Teacher says, “Oh well, it’s like this…” and explains it once again.

I thought social workers would be smart and “fit” for the job, but how my friends and I see, it just a waste of taxpayers’ money (AKA our money.  Another thing that these social workers do is drive other students mad.  Just yesterday, I was hanging out with some girls, and we were hiding food containers from friends as a joke in the cafeteria.  Everyone at our table knew it was a joke, except for the messed up social worker who was sitting across the room.  She bellows at us, telling us to “stop throwing stuff”.  We just ignore her, because we were all thinking, “Wow, nosy much.  We aren’t even affecting you in anyway!”  We continue for another minute or two, and she kicks us out of the cafeteria.  I was laughing so hard because of the joke as we left, and the retarded social worker mutters, “You think it’s funny?” at me, and I reply, “Yeah, I do.  You got a problem with that?”  Right when I said that, she stands up, and we all run away, laughing our heads off (not literally, for the special needs who read this :D).

Last year, I had a very annoying social worker, who would always get “in your business.”  It was quite annoying.  We would be talking to each other, and if we were to talk any louder than a normal conversation, we would get kicked out, even at recess and lunch.  It bothered a lot of people, including me (of course LOL).  Anyways, it’s time for me to have dinner!

What?! 3 Consecutive Trips?!?!

My first trip was to Victoria, BC for a soccer tournament.  As lucky enough as I was to go, we placed first in the tournament.  Good job to all of my teammates, and special thanks to coaches and parents for making it possible!

My second trip was to Sun Peaks Resort in BC.  This trip was for a band and choir festival.  It took 4 1/2 hours to get there and another 4 1/2 hours to get back, minus rest stops xD.  It left my friends and I 9 hours to do whatever we wanted.  We mostly played cards on the moving bus.  When we got there, I was amazed.  I was lucky enough to stay in the Coast Sundance Lodge.  I have to say, that hotel was pretty epic.  Although we didn’t go skiing or snowboarding, you could walk out of the hotel and BAM, there was the ski hill.  The rooms were also very nice, with a fully functional kitchen and in some, a balcony :D.  I definitely enjoyed my stay there, excluding the terrible rules set out by our teachers.  There were lots of activities planned out, but most of them sucked, such as the scavenger hunt.  We had to roam around the village, finding answers to dumb questions.  Another thing was: we didn’t have enough free time.  I wanted to hang out longer with my friends, but, once again, there were too many activities planned out…however, I went to a smoothie shop there, called “Vertical Juice & Smoothie”, and I was surprised.  The smoothies were excellent, and there was free Internet access with a drink, which made it even better!

The third and final trip was grade 8 camp to Timberline Ranch, located in Mission, BC.  I came back yesterday, and that was AWESOME as well!  Again, I wished there had been more free time, but it was sufficient.  The thing I would probably remember is the food, the good times playing Bomberman with my friends, playing Cops and Robbers with cards, and Truth or Dare.  First off: food.  The food was epic.  It served “buffet” style.  Pretty much every meal I ate at least 3 plates (filled).  Next: Bomberman.  Whenever there was short periods of free time or at night, my friends and I took out our Nintendo DS’s and played Bomberman.  I will remember that Drew Millan improved significantly and Drew and I pwned our other friends, Marvin and Daniel at it :D.  Third: Cops and Robbers.  I played the cards version of Cops and Robbers with my friends that were girls (I’ll put it that way…).  The objective of the game is for the Robber (A: Ace) to kill all the Civilians (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) before getting arrested by the Cop (K: King).  I must have spent hours playing that with them (hehe).  Finally: Truth or Dare.  I played with girls and a couple of guys, too.  I got dared to do many things, like hugging girls for 30 seconds, dancing like an idiot for a minute, and even going into the girls washroom when nobody was looking for 5 seconds.  That was pretty fun, both Truth or Dare and the trip itself :D.

Now, it’s time for me to finish my Renaissance project, which is due on Monday.  Bye!
