   Image result for fidget cube and spinner

      Have you ever been in class or at a lame conference meeting and was tapping your fingers or pencil. Clicking our pen 5 million times and you just want to get rid of the habit or just need something else to do so the teacher wont yell at you to stop. WELL I HAVE THE THING JUST FOR YOU! Fidget Cubes and Spinners! These are being worshiped at my school... So whats a fidget cube and spinner you ask. WELL a fidget cube is a cube with things to click, flip, roll and spin.

Still don't have one...

   This was the first thing that everyone wanted. It was so cool to have a cube to fiddle with. You were awesome is you had a cool red or black one. But then people starting seeing that fidget spinners were the other fidget toy called the Fidget Spinner!

It is the thing to have! You hold your index finger and thumb on the finger bands in the center and you spin it! ..... Okay sound more lame when you say it but its actually really fun and good to break habits. So on Monday I asked my mom if I could do some chores to earn some money to buy one. Then my dad mentioned that my cousin Vic makes them. I was like ''WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME THIS BEFORE I COULD HAVE HAD A FIDGET SPINNER A LONG TIME AGO!!!'' Just Kidding. My dad showed my some of the spinners he made on his 3D Printer Machine thingy. So my mom texted him how much for one. He responded very fast saying he sells them for five dollars but since we were family he would give my one free and get this CUSTOM MADE. So he sent me a link o look at different designs for the spinner. I chose one and he got started making it. The next morning my mom said it was done. Man he is fast! Mom showed me the picture of the finished product...


I was so amazed on how fast he made it and how BEAUTIFUL it looks! He even has my nickname on the finger pad. He says it spins for forever too! Thanks again Vic for making this for me its awesome! Now all the kids will be jealous of me. Mwahaha. Phi out.

Interviewing my Mom on her Love for Art

For this project I chose to interview my mom on her love for art. She has loved art for many years.
She takes us to many art museums and surrounds us with art in our own home. She also loves Frida Kahlo and her art as well. I asked her three questions on her love for art.

The first question I asked her was 'What got you into loving art in the first place?' She told me that she started a Chicano Art class in college. She thought "art was for rich people and art museums.". But when she saw this artist named Carmen Lomas Garza's artwork she saw her and her family. There were her cousins hitting a pinata and her aunts and uncles eating conchas! She was amazed to see how much Chicano art was so realistic to her life.

My second question was why is Frida Kahlo your favorite artist? She started off telling me that when she was in Mexico she went to La Casa Azul waiting for her lost luggage. As soon as she walked in she could feel the presents of Frida. She felt so inspired. She read a biography on Frida and fell in love. She said that she went to a Frida exhibit and saw many of her actual paintings. "It kind of has the same feeling like music does". She said it was the only museum she had seen with Frida Kahlo's artwork.

        My third question was what is your favorite piece of art of all time? She sighed. I knew this was going to be a hard question for her. She started explaining all of her personal art she has collected. "The special commissions that were made for me will always hold a special place in my heart" she said. She loves all of her personal paintings the same. But if she had to chose a big artists art piece she would have to chose 'The Two Frida's'. She said it is larger than she thought. She also that art piece at the Frida exhibit she went to. She loves the brush stokes and all the little details in the painting.

       I had one more question to her. Do you draw or paint at all? She laughed. "I would not consider myself a artist". She told me that she likes to write and she also found a liking for photography. But she has started making lunch notes for Sophia (me) everyday. Each are random, either a funny picture or quote. She found out that if you practice just a little bit everyday you will definitely improve!

      I very much enjoyed interviewing my mom. I now understand more about my mom and why she
loves Frida so much. I also know many new things like her favorite piece of art. As well as why her personal art is so close to her. I hope to interview again sometime on some of her other hobbies like photography or writing. Thanks again mom for taking the time and letting my interview you. Phi out.

Bowers Museum

      So if you have read my moms blog you probably know that show loves Frida Kahlo. Well at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana they were having a exhibit of her photos she has. My mom was very excited about this! We went with my Tia's too!

It was beautiful to see her and her family in all of the pictures. If you don't know who Frida is (you should cause shes flippin awesome!) she was a famous artist. She was born on July 6, 1907 and died on July 13, 1954. She was a artist and loved to paint. She was in a terrible bus accident in September 17, 1925 that changed her life forever.

She still wanted to paint though. She had a easel that was specifically made for her to hang over her bed. She made beautiful paintings many were over her and her pain.

Her art is beautiful and it always inspires me. That's it for now. Phi out.

The Bookmark Contest

 So me, my sister Louie and my mom go to my local library ever Thursday after my after school program. I have gone to the library ever since I was little. I used to do the kid programs all the time. One Thursday we walked into the library and checked out our books and I noticed a flyer that said (not going to say the name of the library) library bookmark contest. Design a bookmark showing what you love about the books or library. I could have made many bookmarks about what I love about this library but the most we could submit three entries. I decided to make two entries. One was for one of the librarians. Her name is Nell. She used to do all the programs that I would go to. She is so nice and helpful. She is great at telling stories and even remembering names! So I made a bookmark that had her name and a nice design. Then my second is me sitting on a couch reading a book and I am thinking of all the things that are in the book. I think it came it pretty good! I turned it into the library. So months later in March my mom got a miss call that said that I had won for the 6th to 8th grade! I was so happy and surprised.

                                               I may have went over board with the pixalating...

I am so happy that I won. That's it for today. Phi Out.

Memes for Dayzzzz

So after reading the title your probably think 'what in tar-nations are memes?!' Well, memes are a typically thing that takes over your brain from middle school to high school. They are funny pictures with funny captions. Many kids at my school say the phrases are make the faces of the meme all the time. I may use some phrases like...

But for some reason they are the only thing kids look at! Even on the Chromebooks at our school some of the kids wallpapers are memes! Mine may be a meme as well but lets not dwell on that...

Anyway here are some more examples of memes...

Hamilton... I'm obsessed

Image result for hamilton
  So Hamilton is a musical by Lin Manuel Miranda. It is about Alexander Hamilton and his life. The soundtrack is almost three hours long. I love Hamilton so much that we have the book with the lyrics and notes from Lin Manuel Miranda of the songs. I know some of the songs by heart. One of my favorites is Satisfied by Renee Elise Goldsberry, who plays Angelica Schuyler. She is a amazing singer. Check it out.

So after I got obsessed with Hamilton my friend showed me a Hamilton 'anamatic'. A anamatic is a like a animation but not super detailed. Like a quickly sketched animation. This is one is Take a Break

This youtuber is not posting on that channel anymore but you can check out the other ones on that channel still. They are all amazing!

So as you know I like to draw and I think I draw Hamilton 95% of the time. I draw scenes from the show and characters.

So that's it for today! See you soon. Phi out.

Welcome to Punk Rock Kids. All about MOI

          Hi. My name is Sophia Lerma. I am a 11 year old in middle school. I like to draw, write, play videos games, and stuff... My mom has a blog named Punk Rock Parents which is about me and my family's life. Here check it out.

So I will write about my life here and maybe my sister Louie will come in at times too.

So I have hobbies like I said



I also like to listen to music. Specifically Hamilton (yes) and new pop music. My art is really just people. It's all I draw. Period. Here are a few examples...   

This is me...

I like to draw a lot of Hamilton

 I mostly use my Prismacolor Markers to color big projects. I am thinking of starting to put some of my art up for sale.

I write little story's are blog.

I have this disease called eczema. Mine is severe. Eczema is when you have rashes and cuts and its hard to control it. Mine is pretty much all over my body. My feet is the worst place. It is also in my creases in my arms in legs as well. It hurts to take showers with eczema too. And some ointment and lotions hurt. I am pretty clear at this moment except my feet which are sort of rashed out.

So that is pretty much it from me. I will try to post AT LEAST once a week. So yeah Phi out.
