My name is Electrifeye. That's 'E-Y-E' at the end, most people get confused about the spelling.
So this year I think I'll be trying the TSR summer bucket list (yeah, I know it's kind of obvious given the title of this thread).
I'm planning to vlog my progress rather than the more traditional blog, so we'll see how I get on with this as it's kinda a new thing for me and I'm a little nervous right now . If you want to subscribe to my channel so you're notified once I start uploading you can find my channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCT3...VApDw/featured
= I did it!
= In progress
= Not yet started
1. Lose my coffee virginitySpoiler:2. Make a den in the woodsShowSeriously, I've never tried coffee, and I really feel that I ought to.Spoiler:3. Make a sandcastle that is as big and awesome as possibleShowSeriously, sometimes you need to channel your inner child. I just realised I used 'seriously' in the last spoiler too. I should stop using that word now.Spoiler:4. Read something for my Computer Science course in septemberShowI'm going on holiday in Morocco and I figured I could have some fun on it!Spoiler:5. Make a project using a Raspberry PiShowNot sure if I'll make a video for this one, but hey, it's something I need to do.Spoiler:6. Finally throw a (late) birthday party for my friends to come toShowI probably won't get this done in the time frame for the competition as my uni doesn't send me the Pi until results day. I'll be sure to at least make a start before the competition closes however!Spoiler:7. Create a photo gallery of the awesome things I see this summerShowI'm a bit inhibited and my group of friends is fairly disorganised, so we don't actually do that much together. I'm going to at least attempt to change that!Spoiler:8. Try Moroccan food on my holidayShowWill place link here once I start this goalSpoiler:9. Live independently for 5 daysShowThink I should try and immerse myself in local culture rather than sticking to the usual british burger & chips, at least for one night.Spoiler:10. Make an IRL Rube Goldberg machineShowMy parents are going away in a few weeks and I'll be cooking for myself and generally supporting myself for a few days. I might even try a living below the line charity thing if I find people to sponsor me, though no promises on that front!Spoiler:11. Have a complex conversation with SiriShowJust google it if you're not sure.Spoiler:12. Visit some of the silliest road systems in the UKShowHey siri, is santa real?Spoiler:13. Perform chemical tests on a McDonald's mealShowSuggestions welcome - as long as they're not too far away from meSpoiler:14. Figure out how to remove the TSR clearing popups, as I signed up for the alerts months agoShowSorry, am I allowed to say that within copyright laws? I meant local fast food resturant which may or may not have a logo consisting of a set of yellow glowing parabolae.Spoiler:15. Tidy the web of cables behind my desk into something that less closely resembles a rats nestShowSeem to keep popping up on my phone. I'll look for a setting somewhere eventually.Spoiler:16. Find out why some lorries have two or more different speed limits on the backShowIt used to look like this:
It now looks like this:
Spoiler:17. Reorganise my bedroomShowTurns out they're just for different types of roads. This actually seems quite obvious in hindsight.Spoiler:18. Take a camel ride in MoroccoShowDid this in my first vlog entry! It's now very neat and tidy!Spoiler:I'm hoping to get my first vlog entry up in a couple of days. It's now 4AM and I should probably get to bed, so goodnight everyone!ShowMy sister is very keen to do this so I think we'll be doing this on holiday, I'll try to get some of it recorded.

Doing it like a volg is such a cool idea, will definitely sub to that
I lost my coffee virginity earlier this year, with a caramel latte But I look forward to seeing the chemical tests one especially
Good luck & have a nice summer!

I need to work out what I'm going to do for the chemical tests, I might try getting in touch with my old chemistry teacher and see if he could help me
Started filming my first entry today, so that should be up soon!

Now to start planning for the next one...
Enjoy, everyone! Please don't mock me too much
