My Favorite Dessert To Make (by Chris M)

I started cooking once a week as one of my personal goals a while back. But, if I were to make my own dessert, I would probably make cookies. Cookies are much easier to make over cake because making cakes can result in a mess.

My 2 favorite types of cookies are chocolate chip and oatmeal scotchies. I do remember oatmeal scotchies being my Grandpa’s favorite kind of cookie to eat. If I were to make some, I would rely on my Mom’s guidance since she has gone through this process herself.

Here is a list of instructions I found online for the best chocolate chip cookies from scratch:

  1. 1 cup butter
  2. 1 cup packed brown sugar
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  5. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  6. 2 teaspoons hot water
  7. ½ teaspoon salt
  8. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  9. 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  10. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  11. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
  12. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.

What Are Your Goals For The New Year?

New Year New Decade! Welcome to 2020! At SEEDs for Autism our program works with adults on the spectrum to achieve their goals of growth, building confidence, becoming independent, developing job skills, finding employment and more! We asked our participants to share some of their personal goals for the new year.

NATHAN B.

My goal for the New Year is to get s new pair of headphones. I’ve been needing to buy a new pair of headphones. for my phone and I think it’s about time I get myself a new pair. With a new pair I won’t have to turn the volume down super low when watching videos on my phone. That is my goal for the new year.

ANNA P.

One of my goals for the new year is to be more knowledgeable with human history because I’m a fan of it. Plus I have many history books I haven’t read fully and I’m on my phone too much so I want to be less on my phone and more on reading my history books. History would also help me learn about things I need to know as an adult, like how taxes work or how a law is passed in the goverment. I don’t know these things because I forgot what I learned in history class because years have passed since then.

I will feel more confident knowing a lot about history however it will require me to take notes. This is because I have a bad memory and names that are even harder to remember. I want to know the history of many countries and cultures. Taking notes will help as I heard writing something down will help you remember it. I want to learn global history from U.S. to South Korea, everywhere. I will try hard to achieve this goal.

ETHAN

My goal for 2020 is to improve my art and write fictional stories and maybe write a book.

MATTHEW N

My main goal for 2020 is to save a lot more money and to take care of my money and to take care of my family, my house and my job skills at Seeds. Also to just be myself and to look better than ever. The main thing about money is to save my allowance for all the emergencies like a flooded house, broken computers, and stuff that is very important to family. And I’m looking forward to working on my job skills and hopefully to get a job at Seeds. Also, the year 2019 was my last year to watch just Disney movies and for that I am looking forward to watching other movies from the other movie studios.

Medievil 1 & 2 (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review both Medievil 1 and Medievil II for the PlayStation 1. Medievil 1 was first released on October 21, 1998 and Medievil II was first released on April 30, 2000.

In Medievil 1, The evil sorcerer, Zarok resurfaces in the year 1386 and casts a spell that plunges the entire Kingdom of Gallowmere into an Eternal Night.

Thus, allowing Zarok to steal the souls of the living as well as raise his undead army.

An unintended side-effect of Zarok’s Spell though is that it also revives the heroic champion of Gallowmere, Sir Daniel Fortesque thus allowing him a second chance to finally and successfully defeat Zarok once and for all and finally earn his place as a true hero.

 

Medievil II takes place in Victorian London circa 1886. In this game, An evil warlock named Lord Palethorn rediscovers Zarok’s spellbook and recasts the spell Zarok used to reanimate the dead which as before also revives Sir Daniel Fortesque who must now stop Lord Palethorn from reclaiming the pages from Zarok’s spellbook that went missing.

 

The locations in Medievil II are the Museum, Kensington, Greenwich Observatory, Kew Gardens, Wulfrum Hall, Whitechapel and Cathedral Spires.

 

The cast of characters are Sir Daniel Fortesque (Main Protagonist)(Medievil 1 Weapons: Small Sword/Magic Sword, Throwing Daggers, Crossbow, Longbow/Flaming Longbow/Magic Longbow, Spear, Club, and Axe)(Medievil II Weapons: Small Sword/BroadSword, Flaming Crossbow, Pistol, Bombs, Hammer, Cane Stick and Gatling Gun),

Zarok (Medievil 1’s Main Antagonist/Evil Sorcerer)(Weapon: Magic)

Lord PaleThorn (Medievil 2’s Main Antagonist/Evil Warlock)(Weapon: Magic),

Professor Hamilton Kift (Medievil 2’s Protagonist/Magician, Inventor and Master of the Occult),

Princess Kiya (Medievil 2’s Protagonist/Mummy and Sir Daniel Fortesque’s future love interest),

The Count (Medievil 2’s Antagonist/Vampire)(Location: Wulfrum Hall) and Jack the Ripper (Medievil 2’s Antagonist/Demon)(Location: Whitechapel).

 

In conclusion, I found Medievil 1 & 2 to be one of the best Pulse-Pounding, Heart-Racing, Senses-Shattering and Horror-Themed game series to ever be released.

Suikoden (game revival)

Image result for suikoden logo

Hey there, Everybody. This is Chris M. I’m sure there are lots of people out there who enjoyed playing the Suikoden games when the series was in its prime. In case you didn’t know, Suikoden is like a cross between Fire Emblem and Jade Empire. But then, the series came to a halt sometime ago and since those days, there were no announcements of a new game. But there is still hope for those who want a new installment in the old series.

I’m planning to make a new fan game that would be a fresh take on Suikoden but remains true to certain parts in the games of old. Are you one of the fans who want to see Suikoden make a comeback?

Crusaders For The Future (Update July 1 2017)

Image result for warrior paladin

Hi, Everybody. 

Good news! I have a staff member from SEEDS helping me with development on my game proposal. His name is Brandon P and he’s a talented artist like I am. He’s developing the main logo design for “Crusaders” and helping me come up with new ideas.

I’m hoping that Brandon will help me put everything together in my proposal and that he’ll continue to encourage me with his knowledge of video games. He really cares about me succeeding and believes in what I can do.

 

Anyway, I’m still working on story and character development. It will take me some time, but here are some gameplay ideas that I would like to share with you. .

  • When your warrior spirit gauge is full, you can summon your crusader armor into battle.
  • The Crusader armor makes your character more powerful and capable of defeating certain enemies.
  • You may have the freedom to switch back to your character’s ordinary form, but you’ll have to wait until your gauge is filled up again.
