    Hi there.

    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

    Key:
    :crown: = I did it!
    :crossedf: = In progress
    :poo: = Not yet started

    :poo: 1. Lose my coffee virginity
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Seriously, I've never tried coffee, and I really feel that I ought to.
    :poo: 2. Make a den in the woods
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Seriously, 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.
    :poo: 3. Make a sandcastle that is as big and awesome as possible
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I'm going on holiday in Morocco and I figured I could have some fun on it!
    :poo: 4. Read something for my Computer Science course in september
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Not sure if I'll make a video for this one, but hey, it's something I need to do.
    :poo: 5. Make a project using a Raspberry Pi
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I 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!
    :poo: 6. Finally throw a (late) birthday party for my friends to come to
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I'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! :party2:
    :poo: 7. Create a photo gallery of the awesome things I see this summer
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Will place link here once I start this goal
    :poo: 8. Try Moroccan food on my holiday
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Think I should try and immerse myself in local culture rather than sticking to the usual british burger & chips, at least for one night.
    :poo: 9. Live independently for 5 days
    Spoiler:
    Show
    My 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!
    :poo: 10. Make an IRL Rube Goldberg machine
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Just google it if you're not sure.
    :poo: 11. Have a complex conversation with Siri
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Hey siri, is santa real?
    :poo: 12. Visit some of the silliest road systems in the UK
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Suggestions welcome - as long as they're not too far away from me :f1:
    :poo: 13. Perform chemical tests on a McDonald's meal
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Sorry, 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.
    :poo: 14. Figure out how to remove the TSR clearing popups, as I signed up for the alerts months ago
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Seem to keep popping up on my phone. I'll look for a setting somewhere eventually.
    :crown: 15. Tidy the web of cables behind my desk into something that less closely resembles a rats nest
    Spoiler:
    Show
    It used to look like this:

    It now looks like this:
    :crown: 16. Find out why some lorries have two or more different speed limits on the back
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Turns out they're just for different types of roads. This actually seems quite obvious in hindsight.
    :crown: 17. Reorganise my bedroom
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Did this in my first vlog entry! It's now very neat and tidy!
    :poo: 18. Take a camel ride in Morocco
    Spoiler:
    Show
    My 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.
    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! :sleep:

    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 :teehee: But I look forward to seeing the chemical tests one especially :lol:

    Good luck & have a nice summer!

    Thanks for the support! Coffee virginity was something I was going to get done at uni, but with this competition I thought it was as good an opportunity for it!

    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!

    Well, after several days of worrying my voice sounds unbearably weird, the first entry has been made:


    Now to start planning for the next one...

    Enjoy, everyone! Please don't mock me too much :aetsch:
