Hello World!

                Hi, my name is Eda! I am 11 years old, and (unfortunately) the oldest of three kids. I have a brother who is nine years old, and a littler sister who is five years old. My family moved four times before we moved here. First, I lived in New Jersey, next I moved to Massachusetts, then I moved to Connecticut, followed by moving back to New Jersey, and finally I moved here to New York.

                I love my mom’s cooking. Her lasagna is the best. My favorite dessert is lava cake. My hobbies are reading, drawing, and gardening.

                I like to read because reading soothes me. Some of my favorite books are by Wendy Mass. The books I like to read by her are all connected. Those books are11 Birthdays, Finally, 13 Gifts, The Last Present, and Graceful. Out of those five books my favorite one is 13 Gifts. It is about a girl named Tara who gets sent to Willow Falls as a punishment for stealing a goat. As if her life can’t get any weirder, she finds herself looking for 13 mysterious objects, then producing a play.

                I like to draw because I can express myself. Two of my favorite artists are Vincent Van Gogh and Picasso. I like Van Gogh because he stood out, in life, and in his paintings. I like Picasso because he always painted abstract. Sometimes I draw very bizarre things too. Once my mom told me about how she wanted to renew our kitchen and I drew a picture of how I thought it should look!

                I like gardening because I like to work with the earth. Not too long ago my dad and I planted basil, parsley, cilantro, mint, chive, and strawberries in our backyard. We also planted lilies. The ones I’m most excited about are the strawberries and lilies.

                I hope you enjoyed this post, and I hope you enjoy my blog even more!
