I LOVE Clearwater, Florida!!!

Out of all the places I have been, Clearwater has been the best.  There is so much to do!images.jpg

It has the BEST views!images.jpg

My favorite animal is a dolphin so, when I watched the movie,

                                                Dolphin Tale (2011) – IMDb

I begged my mom to get us tickets to go there.  And finally, we got to go. imgres.jpg

It was BEAUTIFUL!!!  The name says it all, it has very,very,very clear water.  My favorite part was, every morning we would walk out to the beach with our coffee and muffins.

There is so much to do here including,

*Swimming

*Coffee

*Amusement Parks

*Shopping

*Water Activitiesimgres.jpg

*Tours

*Bike Ridding

     *Walks
 They also, have great restaurants.  I love some types of fish and squid.  But, they mostly have greasy food.  My favorite restaurants are the ones on the beach.
Our motel was awesome too!  It was very comfortable and cozy.
One thing that I noticed was that there are tons of lizards crawling around.images.jpg
The fishing there is great because, you can see right through the water. imgres.jpg
My dad and me love fishing so this was awesome.  We have always wanted to fish in the ocean so, this was our chance.  We caught some strange fish but, no sharks.
The shops there are very cool. imgres.jpg

I LOVE beach shops!
Over all, Clearwater is amazing!  I hope we go back soon!

Manga

imgres.jpg

As you already know,  I love to draw.  So, a few years ago when I found Manga, I new I had hit gold. Manga is a very different type of drawing that originated from Japan.images.jpg

Most people get Manga and Anime confused but, Manga is more simple and clean, while Anime, is detailed.  I draw both, Anime and Manga, but, I have token a liking to Manga. images.jpg

Manga is different from regular pictures because, of the eyes.  They have big eyes that are very detailed.  I love this because it gives them a look of kindness and, you can express the Manga person’s feelings better.

Colorado

A few months ago, we traveled to Colorado. As a child, my whole family would rent a HUGE       cabin at a place called,

  Glacier Lodge Estes Park

imgres.jpgimgres.jpg

It is very beautiful there! You have great views of the mountains, ranges, horses, elk and sometimes even bears! These are few of the many things this place has to offer,

*Horse Rides

*Free Coffee and Water

*Games

*Activities

*Pool

*Bonfires

*Movies

*WiFi

*Spacious Cabins

*Access to Fun Places

*Shop

*Great Views

I love the cabins they feel so cozy inside.  Also, there is a dog that walks around and greets people!  The only bad thing is the bears that come and dig into the trash cans.  Me and my family were very lucky to see a bear next to the swing set.  It was so cool! I hope we go there again.images.jpg

I  LOVE Colorado!!!

If You give a girl a Passport

As you already know, I LOVE writing, drawing, cooking, and ….. traveling!  I have traveled thousands of places, including going out of the country two times.

                   The Dominican Republic

Day One:  “You may now start boarding.” said the flight attendant as she opened the gate.

We walked into the plane with smiles on our faces.  Seven hours later, we are walking out in eighty degree weather.

It was a whole different world.  Everyone was speaking Spanish and talking very loudly.  We were very glad to see my uncle’s face shining at us.

Day Two:  I have four cute cousins that live in the DR. We arrived at their house at eight p.m. and were greeted with friendly smiles and warm hugs. We had already had pizza so we didn’t eat anything.

Day Three: The third day we got up early and went to a village in the mountains.  The mountains are beautiful!imgres.jpg

When we arrived at the village, it was way different from life here. They all lived in huts, shared food, and even left the doors of their houses open. We played with the children, but, they spoke Spanish so we didn’t understand them.

When we went back home we ate home-made pizza that was delicious!

Day Four: The fourth day was a little rough. I don’t know if we had a bug or ate something, but, we were up all night vomiting.

Day Five: This was our final day at our cousins’ house.  We hung out and then left at about ten in the morning. We got on a bus that took us to the airport.  Once there, we got on a bus that took us to our resort,

Dreams La Romana Resort & Spa: Dominican Republic Resorts

IT IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would go back there in a heartbeat! It has,

*Open airy rooms

*Free snorkeling supplies

*Free drinks and dining

* HUGE pools

*Clear ocean water

*FANTASTIC views

*Activities

The only bad thing is the people try to get you to buy lots of things.

I LOVE DREAMS!!!

Day Six: We explore everything and swim in the ocean; if you go out to where you can’t touch, you can still see under you! The snorkeling is awesome; we saw about twenty star fish and many types of fish.

Day Seven: We relax and get as many free drinks as we can put our hands on. The service is very good!

Day Eight: Today is our last day so we make the most of it.  We swim and do ocean dancing. It was SO FUN!!!

Day Nine:  We swim for three hours then pack our bags and get into a bus that takes us to our last hotel,

InterContinental Santo Domingo – Santo Domingo – IHG.com

It is nice but, everything costs money.

Day Ten: We pack our bags and head to the airport. It was very sad when we left but, we came back to nine degrees and snowy.imgres.jpg

That was the end of my trip!

Art

I am an artist. I don’t care if it is doodling, painting, or even spray painting. You might not even realize it, but, you use art every day! Have you ever painted a house, played with clay, or doodled in a notebook? Those are all types of art. Even cooking is a type of art! You can’t hate art because you use it every day. So, try drawing something, painting something, or doodling. You might be bad at it but, pretty good chance you will be awesome, at it! imgres.jpg

Hobbies

What do you like to do for fun? My three favorite things are drawing, writing ,and best of all cooking. I LOVE cooking and baking! I make anything from omelets to brownies. This is one of my favorite recipes:

New York-Style Cheesecake

From Nerdy Nummies

Crust

1 1/2 cups cookie crumbs

1/4 cup sugar

5 tablespoons salted butter, melted

Filling

4 packages ( 8 ounces each) cream cheese, at room temperature

1/4 cup sugar

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoon cornstarch

1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 F

Make the crust: In a large bowl, whisk together the cookie crumbs and sugar. Stir in the melted butter until the crumbs are evenly moistened. Press the crumb mixture onto the bottom and 2 inches up the sides of a 9-inch springform platform pan. Bake for 10 min to set the crust. Remove from oven to cool, but leave the oven on.

Make the filling: In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth and light.

Beat in eggs, vanilla, and cornstarch until just combined (do not over-mix)

Mix in the sour cream until well blended.

Pour the mixture into the prepared crust ans spread evenly.

Bake at 350 F for 45 min. Turn the oven off, prop the door open slightly, and let the cake sit for 1 hour.

Remove the oven and place on a wire rack to cool to room temperature.

Cover and refrigerate until well chilled before serving.

How I got started

I was inspired to write my first book after I read an article of a twelve year-old publishing a book. How were you? Just think, whether you create a recipe, write a book, or start a blog, you could inspire someone to do something great.

If you give a girl a pen, what will happen?

20160317_081120If you give a girl a pen, what will happen? When I was given a pen and a notebook, the first thing I wrote was my first book, The Tragedy of 1923. After many edits and changes, I had my final manuscript. Family and friends soon congratulated me, so I felt very warm inside. At that point, I really didn’t care if I published my book. The real joy was writing it.
