Loretto-Hilton Center, 09/28/15 7:30p.m.

Fortunately enough I got the ticket for this event. To be honest, I had no idea who Spike Lee was when I first got the ticket. After googled him, I felt the excitement. He really is a big name.

Earlier this week, I was reading a textbook. It tried to explain the communication barriers between people.

I went to the Jazz and Blues Festival with the King’s, my community friends this Saturday. It was good! The weather has made it even better. During the interval of the stages, Julie, the mom showed me a very interesting shop. This is a shop where you can make cute DIY stuff. You can make an one-of-a-kind necklace for your own. You can use a zipper and some buttons to make a zipper flower. It will look good for a decoration. I saw self decorating chairs and lamps. They were unique and also very beautifully designed. I may probably try one when I have more time.  Continue reading “DIY shop”
