@OrbitalDev0T-67 Days until Orpheus wins!
Okay so I'm literally writing this right before I go to bed. I'm super tired because It's been a long day, but here are some notes of what I did today!
• Started reading They Both Die at the End. It's really good so far, and I'm halfway in. I'll probably be a bad kid and stay up and read some more
• I practiced esperanto on duolingo... I'll probably step up my practicing this friday because I'll be on my way to camp this weekend again.
• Finished the rough draft of Episode 2 of my serial novel, Zero Gravity (now publishing on Kindle Vella and Wattpad!)
• Explored some new songwriting ideas
• Got my learner's permit... Oh, and my license to kill, but that's a secret 😉
• Wrote some stuff for school
• Wrote this little scrapbook post
Anyway that's all, folks. Stay hacky!
PS: You get... A bad 11pm selfie because I took absolutely zero pictures of anything I did, and I don't want to spoil the next episode of Zero Gravity (even though it's kinda predictable tbh)
@JosiasAurel1got this from the Zig Showtime newsletter and someone has a Zig project with the same name as one of my Zig projects

I was really tired/dehydrated/whatever from school and stuff today, so I didn't do a lot. I recorded a recording of Love Story lyrics over my version of Romeo's Love Story, but it's really bad quality, so don't blame me if you listen to it.
Ofc, I kept duolingo-ing.
Stay hacky and go team Orpheus!

@OrbitalDev0T-72 days until Orpheus wins!
📚 Today, I checked out some books from the library
:esperanto: I made it to first place in sapphire league... Yay!
🏫 Worked on some of my government work...
I'm camping this weekend sooooo, not a lot of updates.
That's all for today. Keep on scrapbooking, and remember to support the Orpheus house!
@OrbitalDev0T-73 days until Orpheus wins!
📚 Today, I completed the current challenge by collaborating with @KaraMassie to make our "read lists" longer (This is day two, since I briefly mentioned it in my last post!) I finished my book, His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik today, and it was so good! I can't wait for the next book to be available at the library for me. Tomorrow, I'll pick up another book that I've been wanting to read.
:esperanto: I made it to sapphire league on :duo: Duolingo! Yay! I've also put a textbook on Esperanto on hold from the library. This particular book is held with high esteem in the community and I've had experience with some of its content as well... Its very well written!
🏫 I wrote a letter (Right-center) to someone in order to complete an assignment for my english class. The handwriting is... Let's just say it's not my best work.
✍️ I started writing the last scene of my second chapter. Gotta keep cranking through! I also wrote some song lyrics and poetry that's probably not going to get shared, but whatever. Since today was my writing club, we had some fun creating random story ideas, such as a horror novel about walmart employees trapping customers in the self checkout area and making them go insane from the machine saying "Please scan item then place item in the bagging area." Not only that, but there was even some classism involved! Fun times!
🏋️♂️ I'm not sure if I mentioned this in my first post for #100-days, but I'm trying to just be more active/healthier. I went for a walk outside and I have some stuff I'm going to do before I go to bed tonight.
🎼 I got the general concept for and first few lyrics of a twisted version of "Love Story" by Taylor Swift. It's meant to be from Romeo's perspective and ends with... Well, y'know, death. I think it sounds fairly good so far and if enough people peer pressure me ask me to share it, I may send a snippet.
That's all for today. Keep on scrapbooking, and remember to support the Orpheus house!
@ShubhamPatil0shopping list item: survive physics :duck-duck-dino-orpheus:
@imcuteaaaa0ah nice to see utala pona (good competition)!(oh and its not the most fair!you should sort based on place of articulation of the first phoneme,i.e Gord Orpheus Picasso!(joking,waiting for a member of house :orpheus: suggests sonority and then a member of :picasso: suggests place of articulation of the last phoneme)) #100-days #C0617J44DTL|:gord:
@acon0🎏 I drew the flag for #flag-referendum! Featuring: pirate Orpheus, doing a salute pose, pointing ahead.
I thought about doing it when @KaraMassie asked me whether I was entering or not. I thought about it, then went to the #flag-referendum channel to look around. There, I saw @KrishnaBansal-U03CBNJUWJG’s pirate Orph and immediately got inspired. What if Orph was wearing a pirate hat?? 🏴☠️ It was a fantastic idea. Scrolling further up, I saw @LiterallyEverything-U04LNE9HEFK’s saluting Orph - the pose added so much personality to the character. (And, one of my personal design/art principles: ✨ personality ✨ - not always in the literal "character trait" sense, but something that brings life into the art.) Scrolling further up, I saw @JamesXiao-U04EQJ4RRHA's logo - which is genuinely just a well designed logo. It fits both the tech and boat vibes - so why not replace the traditional pirate skull on the pirate hat with it?
I've honestly just taken in a lot of inspiration from everyone who has submitted a flag, even if it's not as obvious as the ones I've listed above. As @cwalker says, it was truely a community effort and couldn't have been made without the rest of y'all. So thank you all!! I hope you enjoy the flag as much as I had fun drawing it :yay:
@cytronicoder0Day 2/3 of #hack-club-at-fossasia-23!! I felt the need to post about this as a ship, as we committed a couple of shenanigans along the way~ :sphere:
1. Yes, we did a lil thing to #place - some of us here got bored and went to a Starbucks, where we sat and masterfully constructed the one and only John Cena. Then, we returned to the place and updated the board with a photo from #lion-city-hacks-bts!! DON'T WORRY WE ARE NOT HERE TO TROLL (although the john cena one was good, it was just a test - sorry @belle :p)
2. I worked with LionsForge to laser-cut a @dinobox acrylic piece! Going to buy an LED base to put this on :partyparrot:
3. Many stickers from everywhere - this is now the premier event where I got the most swag from
4. We set up a challenge for FOSSASIA participants to draw their versions of @orpheus!! The results were.... pretty diverse, and we will be sending them sometime tomorrow I think
Here are some photos from today - a video update can be found in our planning channel linked above!
See ya :pirateparrot:
@cytronicoder0Moosie theory time - writing an essay comparing ragtime and blues, their characteristics, and analyzing Johnny B. Goode! :tw_car::tw_timer_clock:
Anyways, did a minor update to my portfolio; I reordered my GitHub projects by last updated time rather than the amount of stars each has
Next up: how orpheus is your workshop:orpheus-pop:

@Briyan0Ok! So hello :kitty-wave: and welcome to my first scrapbook update ever (I think)! So what's up today?
:winter-hardware-wonderland: Winter hardware wonderland :winter-hardware-wonderland:
For the next 10 days expect to see WHW content and updates! :kitty-awe:
So I sanded my brand new case (special thanks to Ella for the case) and polished it a bit and then stuck both bottom halves together. Also slapped on a new cute "we can build it" Orpheus :baby-orpheus: sticker I got from epoch :epoch:. So hopefully I'll start some electronic work tomorrow and start with the soldering when I receive my soldering iron kit :raspberry-pi-logo: on Thursday.
Summary of today :partyparrot: :-
Bottom case came out great after some sanding and polishing.--- End of Scrapbook update of today ---
See you tomorrow of the next update! Bye!
@khalby7860Epoch and different versions of Orpheus awaits you...
