An Old Soul.

April 5, 2013

After a tiring day, watching The Ellen Show is, hands down, one of the best way to unwind.  It's sweet, heartwarming, funny, and best of all, the clips are at most five minutes long.  Perfect for a student's schedule.

When I was in San Francisco a few weeks ago, I was so surprised and excited to see Gabriel Angelo, an extremely talented boy who tap-dances and plays the trumpet, simultaneously.  I was first introduced to him while exploring Ellen clips a while ago.  You can see the clip here.

I was struck by how professional this dapper, trumpet-playing young man was.  No matter what happens around him, he doesn't miss a beat and just keeps on playing.  Besides his awesome talent, I was so impressed by his dress style.  I think he coordinates his outfits better than I do!

Anyways, I want to thank everyone for entering my first giveaway!  It was encouraging to see the response, and I am ever so grateful to everyone who visits my humble little corner of the internet.  The 6 winners are listed below:
