Hi, I’m Abishai. I’m 13 years old, and, believe it or not, I am going to tell you how to become a physicist. Now I know it’s weird. You might be thinking, “What can a 13 year old tell me about becoming a physicist?” Well, more than you think, so let’s jump right into this awesomeness.

What I’m about to tell you are the steps to success that I’m following today. I recently got interested in physics, specifically quantum physics. When I told my dad what I’m interested in he gave me a piece of paper with a step by step process everything I need to become an expert in anything I want. Now, I will spread that success all around to everybody.

Step one: identify your topic- This means find the specific branch of physics you want to study, because there are tons of different types of physics (fusion physics, quantum physics, relativity physics, etc.).

Step two: Find out what your goal is with this topic. – Do you want to become famous or maybe a pro at this topic?

Step three: Check Wikipedia for your topic. – Go to Wikipedia and get a basic understanding of your topic.

Step four: There are two options here. You can both abandon your topic and find a new one or keep looking and researching your topic.

Step five: assemble resources. – This is where you split off in five different ways. 1. Is there a professional association. 2. Continue to web search it, 3.check pop culture, 4.find texts, and 5.find a practitioner.

New Topic Flowchart

Above are the step by step instructions to success made by my father and posted in his book, Rapid Skill Development 101.

Step six: after you go down all those rabbit holes, you Get to Work.

Step seven: this is where you split to either Get an Education on your topic or Get Experience on your topic.

Step eight: specialize or generalize – Specialize, means to concentrate on and become an expert in your branch of physics. Generalize, means to follow your branch of physics more widely or generally.

Step nine: this is the final step. – You have to believe and realize that you are now an expert in your chosen branch of physics.

This is the best and fastest way to make yourself an expert in anything not just physics. So if God does not call you to be a physicist then use these steps to become what God wants you to be.

Another article came out about me in the Tennessee Valley Parents magazine and the contest I won at Chef Steps in Seattle…

Hi my name is Abishai.

Today I am going to talk about and tell you how to make a good pot of oatmeal. Normally, I make a pot of oatmeal for our family of six, and it usually feeds us for one week. We all really, really love oatmeal, even my little sister Astrid. She gobbles that stuff up. Well, that is enough stuff about me.


Here is my recipe for scrumptious oatmeal…


  • Water-12 cps
  • Salt-3/4 tsp
  • Oatmeal-8 cps
  • Cinnamon-1 ½ tsp
  • Brown sugar-3 ½ cps
  • Vanilla-2 Tbs
  • Milk-2 cps


  1. Fill a big pot with all your water. Remember, this is for six people.
  2. Put it on to boil and add the salt.
  3. Pour the oats into the boiling water.
  4. Add cinnamon and allow to cook. Then add milk and let it finish cooking.
  5. Add brown sugar and stir. Then take it off the heat.
  6. Add vanilla and stir. After that, your DONE!

Serve the oatmeal and let the rest cool a little bit before you put the pot into the fridge.

Options for enhanced oatmeal are endless. Really, you can put virtually anything in it. My list only begins with…

  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Banana
  • Apples
  • Cinnamon apples


So there is your recipe for perfect oatmeal and ways to make it even better by adding some pizzazz to it.

Hi my name is Abishai.

Today I am going to talk about me being able to cross something off my bucket list. At Taco Bell they have a “Taco Twelve Pack”, and usually I share one with my dad and brother. We each get four tacos.

Not today though!

Today, I crossed eating a “Taco Twelve Pack” off my bucket list. I, Abishai Powers, ate an entire one of them solo.

My family nickname is Pig, but, wow, to be completely honest, by the time that was over, I felt pretty sick. I had never eaten so much food at one time before. It was invigorating. My colon was very energized by it, though, because I had to go three times that day.

So, that is the story of me eating a “Taco Twelve Pack”. Hasta la vista, bro-migos!

My dad found a cool book he read that wanted me to check out and review for you guys. It’s called Discovering Harold, and it is by another homeschool kid like me, except she’s a girl.

I thought the book was pretty good. I’ve never really thought much about what life is like for a deer, especially with hunters and stuff. I am glad the deer found some nice humans to hang out with.

I think it is a very good book and if you like animals or really good stories, then you will like this book. I think Hannah is a really good writer and her brother is a good artist. I like drawing much better than writing though, but that’s just me.

You can find the book and buy it on Amazon.



For my birthday Matthew from Cub Scouts bought me some brownie mix. I enjoyed making them and hope you like the videos. Dad doesn;t like brownies so that means more for me and mommy.

I just wrote my first review on a website called Trip Advisor. They wouldn’t let me write it by myself because I had to be 13 to do that, so my dad added some to it and posted it under his name.

Check it out HERE. The review is about my birthday party at Wonderworks.


Thanks Charity Water for my birthday phone call!
