How it works

The point of this blog is to generate challenges to provide my life with adventure, personal growth, and to meet people in interesting ways. In order to do this, I need challenges. I expect it to take anywhere from a week to two months for me to complete my challenges, whether because I am preparing for some one-time event at the end of "training," because the opportunity to complete the challenge isn't a daily thing, or that is how long I need to do something.

To submit a challenge to me, reply to any post. While challenges can be as simple as "Do _____ while ______ing," but I would also appreciate more information, such as a suggestion of how long I have to complete my challenge, approximate costs if I have to buy all of the equipment involved, anything else that seems useful. After evaluating the entries, I will post about a few of them, and the ones with the best responses will be added to a poll to vote.

While I do reserve the privilege to decline challenges I do not see to be in line with the spirit of my adventure, I will give serious consideration to all submissions.

March Madness

I've been slacking  a little with my blogging and my running. I say running because I haven't been having problems with where I had some tendinitis for a couple months. At least much of my time has been spent with class work and job hunting.

This weekend, I need to do some class research for signing up for next year. I have an advisement appointment on Monday and have to have a good idea of some classes before I go since I'm an upperclassman. But besides that, I have a relatively free Saturday since I will be finishing two of my long cycle assignments/projects as of tomorrow after class. The plan: see how far I can get on making my second homemade nerf gun. 

This time, I am using a plan from NerfRevolution. the goal is to make a shortened pump SNAP with a hopper that works for my stephans. I have a weird situation of having two different sizes of foam backer rod.  My old coil, which I just finished cutting up and am in the process of converting to slug darts is bigger than the new coil I got after a job interview today.  Super lucky for me, I happen to have met  the brother of one of my friends who also has made a few homemade nerf guns, himself.

Ultimately, the plan is to finish the project before April, when it will be quite useful for a game I intend to play.

Still looking for that first challenge. Or, for that matter, reply.
