The Chancla Boom

For these past few months, styles have gone in and out of the fashion world, but the one style that stays put are chanclas. Even through winter they survived, and now that it’s spring the boom has gotten even bigger.

These shoes are worn from San Francisco to D.C., and are worn by nearly every girl out there. They’ve become a big thing even here in Garner. When I asked Nicole Siemek (8) when and where she wears hers, she replied, “I wear mine everyday… Except when it’s raining.”

Chanclas are on the feet of everyone every day. Valeria Licerio (8) boasted, “I wear mine on the weekends all the time,” and of course she wears them to school, too. This trend has hit it big, and is expected to keep it going. There are countless stores out there that sell these sandals, so buy them now and it’ll save you trouble later.

Draw Something, One Of The Most Played Games!

This year a new game on the iPhone called Draw Something is on top of the charts, it’s number 2 on the most played games. Draw Something really gets the brain working, so to play this game you have to have a brain! Anyone can play this game, it’s simple, easy, and enjoyable, so I would recommend getting this game.
Typically this is how you play the game: all you have to do is get another person to play, and you draw a picture and the person you’re playing has to guess what you’re drawing and that’s all. The cool part is if you can’t guess what the person is drawing you can buy bombs and the bombs helps delete some of the words to help you out a little more. There’s 3 kinds of pictures you can draw: there’s easy, medium, and hard pictures, but what you should draw is the hard pictures because you get 3 coins and so they keep on adding up as you keep on playing and that helps you get bombs and different kinds of colors. It’s that simple!
The sad part is if you want to play Draw Something you have to have an iPhone or an Android, beacause  those are the only phones that have the game. Nico Ramon is one of the players of Draw Something and he says, “I like how the artist gets to interpret the word and draw it… it’s just fun and you should get the app today!” Mrs. White explains, “Last month was the time I started to play it, because my brother-in-law was playing it and he showed me.” So there’s many people that play this game, even adults like to play it too. One day, I know this game will be the number 1 game that people play.

Summertime Fun

Guess what’s coming up, guys and girls? Summer! What are y’all doing this summer? Spending time with family, going out of town, moving in with a friend, going to Six Flags, tanning at the beach, going to parties, summer cleaning, etc… Well whatever you do, live it up, because that’s the whole point of summer!

I interviewed Mercedes Whitby (8) about her summer plans. “This summer I’m going to Warped Tour and All-Stars with my best friends Kassandra, Ivy, Alexia, and Kathleen. It’s going to be so much fun spending my summer with them.” That sounds like fun. Especially since you’re spending it with best friend’s. Other sources I interviewed were Valerie Bustillo (8) & Latisha Talbert (8). “This summer of 2012, I’m going to live it up to the fullest! Going to a lot of parties, and hanging out with all my friends,” says Valerie Bustillo (8). Latisha Talbert (8) said, “Hmm, this summer I’m going to stay at my best friend’s house for probably half of the summer and then go to the beach and spend the rest of my summer with my family.”

Hopefully this summer, everyone enjoys it. I know I will enjoy it and I won’t regret anything.
