Fall Photos | 2021

Hey! Hope you are having a great day! I just went a short nature walk and took a bunch of photos, and wanted to share it with you all! Surprisingly, there is still a lot of green on some of the trees, but I am sure the leaves will fall off soon.

We found a toad!
He’s jumping and some how I got it in a photo. lol

I hope you enjoyed looking at these photos! I might post some more photos soon (keep your eye out for that😉). It will probably be more pictures of leaves.

How To Handle Stage Fright

Hey guys! Today I am going to share how I handle performing in front of people. I barely know anyone who does NOT get nervous when performing in front of other people. So don’t feel like you are the only one who gets nervous because you aren’t. I am now my church’s pianist, so I do have a lot of experience with performing on stage. These tips I have learned throughout the years and have helped me when I am nervous. This is not just for performing music, it will work for pretty much anything you perform in front of people.

Person Playing Red Electric Guitar

Focus on your music. Whatever you do, do not look away from the music/ instrument, because you might (probably) mess up. I know I mess up all the time if I look away from the music. This also stops you from looking at the crowd of people watching you. If you just focus on your music, it will solve a lot of problems.

Man Playing Cielo

Don’t think you will mess up. I sometimes think before I go up to play that I am going to mess up. Don’t think that! It’s just going to make you mess up. You need to trust yourself. Try your best to stay away from the negative thoughts, those thoughts are going to mess with you and make you mess up.

Stay calm as possible. I know it is hard for a lot of people to stay calm, but if you start to get anxious it’s going to make you mess up. The people in the audience are going to know that you are anxious if you show it. Try your best to stay calm, and you will be fine!

Woman Singing on Stage

Be prepared. Whether you are performing in a play or playing an instrument, know what you are doing. If you don’t know your music very well, you are most likely going to mess up. Plus, if you do know your music (or whatever you are performing) you will not be as nervous because you will have more confidence.

I hoped you learned some new tips! Have a great day!

It’s My Birthday!🎉

Hey, hope you are having a great day. I know I am.😋 Today I went to choir and band, then me and my cousin went to a pet store and saw a ton of cute baby bunnies (we did not get any though). Then we went to Dunkin’ and I got cold brew with sweet foam and carmel. After that we went and got food then ate it at my house.

After we ate, we made dog treats and frosted a cake. Here is a picture of the dog treats (the recipe for the dog treats) and the cake.

It’s a pig, a paw, and a bone.
It is a chocolate cake with chocolate ganache in the middle, and vanilla butter cream on top. We attempted an ombre.

Later on we are going to have ranch chicken for dinner, then we will eat the cake and open presents.

Hope you enjoyed reading this! Have a nice day!

Pumpkin Cinnamon Dog Treats

Today I am going to share a dog treat recipe! These treats are perfect for fall, super easy to make, and your dog will love them! If you make these I would recommend to use all natural ingredients because you do not want your dog getting sick.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 a can 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1/2 table spoon Cinnamon
  • 2 Table Spoons Peanut Butter
  • Dash of Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 cups of Whole Wheat Flour

Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients together. It should be like a dough. Its okay if it is a little sticky, but If it is still very sticky add more flour. Put your dough in to molds. I use (picture below) these, but I am sure you could use something else. Now bake for 15 to 20 minutes. The longer you let them bake the harder they will get. If your dog likes its treats softer take them out earlier. Once they are done baking take them out, let them cool and feed one to your dog!

I would recommend storing these treats in the fridge because they will last longer.

This is the mold I used.

Thanks for reading my post! Do you like to make dog treats?

My Favorite Drinks

I know it has been a while since I have posted. I went to camp for a week, and then I was busy with summer activities. I just started school a week ago, and I and my family are taking my brother to college so trying to get ready for that.😅 So here is a list of my favorite drinks! I recommend you try these if you have not. (:

  • Carmel Iced Coffee With Cream From Dunkin’. I LOVE coffee, this is what I get all the time. If some one were to ask what I put in my coffee this is what I would say. I also Like this drink with coconut milk. I love the flavor coconut and it makes it super creamy.
  • Smoked Vanilla Cold Brew With Sweet Cold Foam From Dunkin. If you can’t tell all ready, I really like Dunkin. lol I explain why I like Dunkin in this post. Anyways… This drink taste like heaven! It is super creamy and the vanilla flavoring taste soo good.
  • Brown Sugar Milk tea with Tapioca Pearls (AKA Bubble Tea). This year, I tried bubble tea for the very first time, and now I am obsessed with it! It is so much fun to eat the Bubbles on the bottom, and the milk tea is delicious. If you have not tried Bubble tea before, you must put it on your bucket list (or some type of list lol).
  • Pina colada. On a hot summer day, this drink is so refreshing! I love a cold Pina Colada(no alcohol obviously). When I get this I usually get Tapioca pearls on the bottom.
  • Rootbeer. This is my favorite pop since I was like six. lol When ever I get a drink, when I go out to eat, I will most likely get root beer.
  • Chery Sprite. I love anything flavored cherry so that is probably why I like this pop.

What is your favorite drink? Have a nice day!

“No Not One”, “I Run To Christ”, And “Savior Like A Shepard Lead Us” Played on Piano

Hello! I hope you are having a nice day! About a month ago, I did a post called “My Summer Bucket list.” On the list was uploading more music to YouTube. And well… I did! I uploaded three more songs, and I am hoping to add more! Here they are!

I have been recently learning new hymns because my church does not have a piano player anymore. For a couple of months, it’s been guitars leading the singing (I play guitar, but now I play piano and guitar. Slowly making my way to playing piano all the time) well… *laughs in frustration* let’s just say, the guitars do not lead as well as piano. So yeah… that’s what I am working on right now. If you know any tips for hymn playing please tell me. I would love to read them (more like need to read them).

The last song is “Savior Like A Shepard Lead Us”. I am playing this song for my camp’s music competition.

Hope you enjoyed listening to those songs! Keep your eye out for new videos!

Happy Fourth Of July!

Happy Fourth Of July everyone!!

sparkling 4th of july GIF

Hope you are having a awesome day!
Today I went to church and then I went to a parade my city originally did every year but last year the did not because of covid, so they had it this year. After the parade, I went home and ate cowboy beans, hots dogs, and cake. Here is the picture of the cake I made.

It is suppose to be a tie dye theme. It did not turn exactly how I wanted it to turn out but that’s okay. lol

Hope you have a great day and happy fourth of July!

What To Do When You See A Service Dog

What To Do When You See A Service Dog.png
This Dog is not wearing a service dog vest, but it was the only free photo I could find of a service dog.

Hello! Today I am going to write about service dogs. Service dogs are very helpful for people who have a disability. They can help in so many ways. Some of the ways are: Picking up things, Guiding the blind, opening doors, and can even tell if you have high or low blood sugar (those are called diabetic alert dogs). Now that you know that service dogs are a big help to people, I am going to share what you should do if you see a dog service dog out in public.

DO NOT PET THE DOG! There is a reason why the dogs have a “do not pet” sign on their vest. It’s not because the dog is mean, and they would not be aggressive otherwise the dog could not be a service animal because then people could be at risk of getting hurt. It because it could distract the dog from helping their owner, and if you distract them from their owner, the owner could easily get hurt.

Don’t make noises that could distract the dog. This is kind of the same thing as petting you don’t want the dog to be distracted away from its owner. The best thing to do is just ignore the dog. I know, I know, dogs are cute and you want to say aww, but trust me the best thing for the owner and the dog is just to be quiet and not to distract the dog.

Don’t make any rude comments. What I mean by this is don’t say “Get your dog away from me before it bites me”, or “I have allergies”. I know not everyone has had a great experience with dogs, but service dogs are nice dogs and will not attack you. They go through two years of training so don’t worry about the dog attacking you. If you have allergies, just ovoid being near the dog, or if you on a plane take an allergy pill.

If you see a dog, with the service dog vest on, approaching you, FOLLOW THE DOG. That could mean the owner is hurt, and the dog is trying to get some help. So follow the dog and see if its owner needs help.

Next time you see a service dog with its owner just ignore it, because the owner could be depending on its life on the dog. You don’t want to be the reason why someone was to get hurt. I hope you found this post informational! Have a nice day!

Video Game Recommendations | Collab With Faye From Meet Me In The Meadow

Video game RECOMMENDATIONS.png

Hello! Today I did a collab with Faye from Meet Me In The Meadow. Here is the link to her blog. https://fayescountlesscreatures.home.blog/

Faye’s Game Recommendations

  • World of Warcraft- This game is an online mmp (massive multiplayer) game. You do have to pay for it, and there is two versions, the retail version and the classic version. I play the classic version with my dad. You have to level up your character, which can be any of these (pictures below): There are a few different goals in the game, you can join a guild and level up to raid with your guild, and work on getting on the world guild leaderboard. You can also just go it alone and level up to be strong and have fun.
  • Minecraft– You build with blocks. What’s your favorite thing to do on Minecraft? Do you play in creative or survival?
  • Roblox– Roblox has thousands of games on it. And it’s free to make an account and start playing! I like to play a bunch of different games, but I have my own game and group that keeps me pretty busy.

Raegan’s Game Recommendations

  • Asphalt 9– If you like racing games you will probably love this game. Pretty much you just race, in you choice of car, against other people (your friends, computer, or other real players).
  • Moomoo.io– This is my favorite online game. You collect resources (stone, wood, apples, and gold) then you choose your weapons and fight other player and join teams to fight against other teams. Now the only thing about this game is that there are hackers (don’t hack not cool), which makes the server crash (sometimes not all the time), and some of them are hard to kill, but its still a fun game and would totally recommend playing this game.
  • Paper.io– This game is a ton of fun. The goal to get most of the map (look at the photo), and destroy everyone else. I prefer team game mode, because it is easier to win. SO defiantly give this game a try.
Screenshot 2021-06-21 2.10.40 PM.png
  • Hole.io– In this game you are a hole and you have to try to swallow everything and the things that you swallow are points. The more things you swallow the bigger you get. The goal is to try to get the most points. Defiantly recommend trying this game its a lot of fun.

Hope you enjoyed this post! You should try to some of these games, and if you do tell me what you think! Have a nice day!

Summer Photos

I am going to share some photos of flowers, grass, etc. that I just recently took!

These flowers are so pretty!
You guys, this rose smelled so good, and not artificial! lol
\
Leaves of three let it be. This is poison Ivy By the way.
The little bees are so cute!😍
This reminds me of little house on the prairie.

Hope you enjoyed looking at these photos! Have a nice day!

My Favorite TV Shows

Today I am going to share my top favorite TV shows. I actually do not watch too many TV shows. But when it comes to these shows, I could watch them all day long.

The Amazing World Of Gumball. You guys… This show is so funny, and great almost my whole family likes to watch this show. This show is about a middle schooler who lives in Elmore with his family. You can find this TV show on Hulu and Cartoon Network.

Tangled the Series. I have watched both seasons of this show and love it so much! Tangled is my favorite Disney princess movie, so it makes sense why I like it. It is a kid’s show but… I still think it’s a good show. If you love Tangled the movie, then you will probably like this series. You can find it on Disney Plus.

Be Cool Scooby-Doo. When I tell people that this is one of my favorite shows, they are like, “Ew no, Scooby Doo.” but guys, this is way better than the original corny Scooby-Doo. It still has some of those corny jokes, but the jokes are actually funny. The animation is much different than the original, but I like it. And the voices of the characters are all played by the original Scooby-Doo cast. You can watch the first episode for free on Boomerang. https://watch.boomerang.com/watch/3/1

Little House on the Prairie. This is a classic TV show a lot of people have probably seen. It is so much fun to watch, except some of the episodes are a little dramatic, you could say. But otherwise, it is a great TV show to watch with the family. I was working through the series, but I don’t know if I will finish it ): (there is a lot of episodes).

Cake Wars. This is my favorite baking TV show. I love to bake cakes, so this TV show is a lot of fun to watch. In the show, a couple of bakers compete to see who has the better cake, and they always have fun themes they have to follow (like monopoly, Dr. Seuss, The Grinch and the list goes on). Defiantly recommend this show if you love baking shows. Sadly they have not posted any new episodes since 2017, but they still have a lot of episodes.

Those are my favorite TV Shows. I know it is not a lot but maybe in the future I will do another one of these posts with more shows that I found and liked. Do you like any of these shows? What’s your favorite TV show?

Happy Memorial Day!

I just wanted to come on here to wish everyone a Happy Memorial day! I also wanted to thank everyone who has served in the military and remember everyone who has died just so I could have freedoms here in America. Thank you so much for risking your life just so I could be free and do so many things in America! I know this past year and last year, some people are not respecting the people who have served in the military. That is so not right. A lot of people do not understand that they are literally risking their lives just so you could be free and do so many things! So please respect the people who have served in the military (and police officers as well).

I made this design that says thank you for serving! If you know anyone who has served in the military, go ahead and send it to them. If you do not like this design, you can make your own on canva.com, or just text thank you for serving!

Hope you all have a great Memorial day! And don’t forget everyone who risked their lives that way we could live freely in America!

My Summer Bucket List

Today I am going to share my summer bucket list. I am not going to pressure my self to do to many of the things, because I will have a busy schedule with music, camp, sports, etc.

  • Make Icecream (I just got an ice cream maker, I may do a post on it (;)!
  • Go to the lake.
  • Do my first Violin special for church.
  • Make a cake with Chocolate ganache in the middle.
  • Go horseback riding (I already went horseback riding a week ago, but I would love to do it again if possible.)
  • Maybe Get a African dwarf Frog. If you did not know, I love toads and frogs. I think it would be cool to have one of these frogs as a pet. If you know any information or you have had an African dwarf frog as a pet please let me know what you think of them.
  • Make lemonade. 😋🍋
  • Finish “The Avengers” with my friend.
  • Start a new art project.
  • Make a frog themed cake.
  • Earn some money.
  • Do a piano special for church.
  • Eat Watermelon.
  • Upload some more music on YouTube.

Those are all of my goals/things I would like to do in summer. Also, I am almost done with school so hopefully I will be able to have a regular posting schedule for my blog. What are somethings you want to do in summer? Have a great day!

May’s Planner

Today I am going to share my planner for may, that I got from my mom and dad at Easter. This is kind of my first time planning my days. I had one for school back in 2019, but that was just for keeping track of school and not activities.

Here is the front of the planner.
Here is the first page.

I decided to add an extra page for monthly goals. For some reason the title is a little weirdly worded (I guess I was not thinking straight. lol). And the last goal I am trying to keep my wheat grass alive and the little face is supposed to be this emoji 😐.
Here is the next page.
I messed up on the days, and then I tried to fix it. lol
Here is a sneak peak of my week.

I had a lot of fun planning my week and I am hoping to do this for the rest of the year. Do you have a planner?

Photos Of Clouds

A long time ago I took some photos of clouds, and ment to post it but forgot. 🙄 So anyway… Here are the photos of the clouds! I took them while I was in a moving car so that is why they are not the best quality (they were to pretty not to take photos) .

Green light!

Hope you enjoyed looking at the photos! Have a nice day!

Tips For Beginner Musicians

I hope you are doing great! Today I am going to share some tips for beginner musicians. I play the piano, guitar, ukulele, and… I am learning the violin (I’m very excited😜)🎉!! So I do have experience playing instruments. If you’re leaning the piano, flute, violin, etc then these tips will hopefully help you!

This is a phone background I made. You are welcome to use it. It is a reminder for you to practice when you turn on your phone or go to your home page. (;

PRACTICE! When most people first learn an instrument, they have some motivation to practice because you’re doing something new and exciting! But after a while, the instrument might get a little boring. If that does happen set about 15-30 minutes to practice. It’s okay to miss one day, but remember you are not going to get better at any instrument if you do not practice.

Close-Up Photo Of Person Playing Piano

Don’t give up! Just because you are not getting it right away, does not mean you should give up. I know a lot of people give up the guitar because it hurts their fingers or they are not getting how to put their fingers on the right fret. That kind of stuff can be fixed. If you practice 15 minutes every day, you will eventually get calluses on your figures, and then it will not hurt while you play the guitar. If your figures still hurt after 15 minutes of practicing, then try 10 minutes, then go up to 15 minutes. Now sometimes it is just hard for some people to learn a specific instrument. And after a while, you feel like you still don’t get it you could quit. Now don’t feel bad about quitting. Maybe the instrument was just not meant for you!

Brass Trumpet With Musical Notes

Play music you enjoy playing. This if you don’t like to practice. Learning a piece that you enjoy playing/listening to will make your practice more! Now A lot of people make the mistake of only playing music they know how to play. Now, if you want to get good at an instrument, you are going to have to learn the difficult thing about the instrument. Just playing what you know how to play is not the greatest, but it is always a good review on the things you already know.

Person Playing Cello

Find a teacher you get along with. This will defiantly help want to practice and to be excited to go to your lessons, because if you don’t get along with your teacher, then you probably will not be as motivated to practice (and there is another reason why some people quit their instrument). If you feel like this teacher is not right for you and you guys just are not getting along try a new teacher. When looking for a teacher, ask around and see what other people say about that person before you start lessons with them.

Hope you found these helpful! Do you play an instrument? Do you want to play an instrument?

Thanks so much for all of the questions that you guys sent in! Here are the answers!

Amber asked,

What is your all time favorite color?

It would have to be light pink. I know a lot of girls my age do not like pink, but I still love the color. I think it is pretty. 🙂

I am a christian. So I think Christianity (being a christian) is the only way to heaven.

There is a lot more to it but that is all I am going to say.

Easter Bunny Photo Shoot

Hope you are having a wonderful Easter! I just took some Easter themed photos of my rabbit! Here are the pics!

hehe! Saying hi to the camera.

I hope you enjoyed looking at the photos! Don’t forget Easter is more than the Easter bunny. The reason we celebrate Easter is because Jesus Died on the cross and rose again on the third day! Have a wonderful Easter!
