Guitar Song of the Week – Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud

My guitar teacher Andy is really cool. He likes to teach me songs from his generation and my mom’s  (have you heard of Deep Purple’s Smoke on the Water?) but he also asks me what I want to play.

My latest song that I am learning to play  is Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.”

Chillin in Westchester #WordlessWednesday

One of my godmothers  and her husband moved to Westchester to this really cool house. I finally got to see and hang out. I can’t wait to go back and just hang out in the backyard.

My First @Nike Air Jordans Basketball Sneakers

Have you heard of Air Jordans sneakers? I am not sure how I heard about them probably from the other girls on the basketball team. They all have cool sneakers so I started going online and looking for sneakers I wanted to buy.

After weeks of looking at sneakers, I finally got my mom to take me to Foot Locker.   Just in case you are wondering, my mom was not happy how much they cost and refuse to pay for them so I used my birthday money to buy them but I love my first Air Jordans.

What do you think?

Visiting the Central Park Zoo @centralparkzoo

One of favorite places to visit is the Central Park Zoo. My favorite animals to see are the Penguins and the Seals.  You will like because it’s small and not too overwhelming. After you wander through the zoo, don’t miss the petting zoo. It’s awesome. You actually get to feed the animals. Don’t forget to bring quarters to buy food for the animals.

Sea Lions have special feeding times, check first so you don’t miss the show.

 Who doesn’t love watching those funny penguins? And look for the cute little puffins as the end of the hallway in Polar Circle.

My New Favorite Sneakers @Converse

I love wearing sneakers and my new favorite sneakers are my red Converse Hi-Tops. My mom tried to talk me into the short ones but I like the High-Tops because they look cooler.

Do you have a favorite pair of sneakers?

Learning to Play the Guitar

This past Christmas, my godmothers bought me a guitar. I was so excited because I have wanted a guitar for a very long time. The only instrument I know how to play is the ukelele and the drums. It took my mom a little while but she found me a guitar teacher. He actually teaches a couple of kids I know from elementary school.

The first song I am learning to play is Smoke on the Water. Have you heard of the song? The song is pretty famous and old. My mom even knows it. Stay tuned for videos on songs I am learning to play.

Happy Birthday Willy Wonka 50th Party @DylansCandyBar

Did you know Wily Wonka is 50 years old? I love Willy Wonka and have seen both versions of the movie. This weekend,  I  attended an event hosted by Milk + Bookies at my  favorite Candy store, Dylan’s Candy Bar to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Roald Dahl book, CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY.

Willy Wonka was there along with chocolate fountains.

 Of course had to have chocolate covered pretzels from their huge chocolate fountain.

My mom and me gave books to Milk + Bookies which is a nationwide charitable organization that inspires children to give back, using books as its currency and facilitates opportunities for children to raise book donations and give back to their peers who do not have access to books of their own.

 

Enjoying Delicious Japanese Crepes @EightTurnCrepe #nyc

The French are famous for their crepes but have you ever heard of Japanese crepes? Me either. After enjoying Dim Sum in Chinatown, my friend Paul and I  walked uptown with our parents. We were both  hungry and wanted some dessert.

The View from Columbus Circle #nyc

When I walk around New York City, there are so many places I never get to see from really high up. Columbus Circle near Central Park is a really cool part of New York. It’s a really busy intersection so my mom and I are always rushing around and never stop to see what is around us.

But if you go into the Time Warner Center to Mall at Columbus Circle to the upper floors, you can peer down and see the circle. The day these photos were taken, we were seeing a show at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
