Hi everyone! Today, I’m going to share with you one of my poems I wrote on the way from Illinois. I hope you enjoy!

Life by Mara

Tears of eternity

Laughs of moments

Hearts of gold

Pain of the past

Cries of the lost

Smiles of the found

Trees of life

Winds of peace

Sunrises of hope

Sunsets of rest

First laugh

Final tear


Also, I was typing this up, my mind drifted off to between 7th and 8th hour. My reading teacher [who is awesome] said that she hoped she was alive when I became a writer someday. That made me so happy! Well I hope you enjoyed my poem. Bye!




Hi everyone! It’s Mara, here with a post about where I was all weekend! I hope you enjoy the post!

Over the weekend I went to Naperville, Illinois for a concert. I left school early on Friday, came home and we left for Illinois. It is a long car ride there and we didn’t want to get stuck in traffic [we still did] so that’s why I left early. We got to Downtown Naperville and had dinner at the deep dish pizza place, Lou Malnati’s. We then went to little stores around the downtown area of Naperville. We looked at some books at Anderson’s Bookstore, then headed over to Sur La Table to look at cookie cutters, after that we decided to go look at some cool games at Marbles, finally we settled down at Starbucks with some treats from Le Chocolat de Bouchard. I had a Cotton Candy Macron from Le Chocolat de Bouchard and a Frappula Frappuccino from Starbucks. Then we checked in at our hotel, and went to bed.

On Saturday, we woke up and went to Corner Bakery for breakfast. Then we went back to our hotel to rest up before we went out exploring for the day. I played my favorite game on my IPad, Looney Tunes Dash. After that we got some delicious sushi for lunch at Rotary Sushi, they have the best Green Tea Cheesecake there ever! After Rotary, we went to Westfield Mall, it had a big carousel and a train. It lots of tiny little stores, they had this store called Furry Babies. It sold purebred puppies. My mom and I admired a little dachshund puppy. Then, we left Westfield and headed over to Danada Square to get some Bundt Cakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes. We went back to the hotel, my mom relaxed in her bed, my dad played on his IPad, and I read up in my special window seat looking out over the city. Then all of a sudden the fire alarm went off. It was so scary! We got our shoes and walked out of our room, down the emergency exit stairs. We walked down the long 11 staircases, then headed outside with everyone else. The Paramedics and Fire Fighters came. They inspected the building throughly. It turned out to be lots of powder from the people working on the roof. Then we went to dinner at Corner Bakery [again.] We headed over to the concert at Yellow Box Church. There were more than A 1,000 people. We saw Mr . Talk box, Francesca Battistelli, and Matthew West. It was a really good concert. Matthew West and his band gave out candy to all the kids! Since, it was Halloween.

This morning we woke up then went to breakfast at Corner Bakery [for the 3rd time.] Then we came back to the hotel and packed up getting ready to check out of the hotel. We then headed back to Downtown Naperville. We walked the Riverwalk and checked out lots of stores. We had lunch at Ted’s Montana Grill, then we saw a little group of people gathered by the pet store Two Bostons. We headed over, they had all these dogs in cages outside. We found another dachshund puppy named Opie. We then headed back home, and had dinner. That’s brings us pretty much up to the present.

I hope you enjoyed the post! Bye for now!
