I Went to a Trump Rally!!! 🇺🇸

Hello all! You can’t guess where I went on Saturday! Actually you can cause you read the title…..I went to a TRUMP RALLY!!! It was amazing and super cool and crazy awesome and I am so glad I got up early, waited for 5 hours and got sore feet (and neck). 😀 Here’s a little bit about it and then a couple short vids and pics!!! Comment down below if you have ever gone to a Trump rally or if you plan too!


The rally was in Belgrade, so very near where I live, which was super awesome cause I didn’t have to get up way early or skip school/work. We waited in line (which was YUUGE btw; they expected 5,000 people and got almost 10,000!) for around 2 hours and then stood in the hanger for a couple more….then Air Force 1 landed! Super, duper amazingly cool to see it coming. And seeing the president in person was unreal. Honestly, having watched Trump on TV for the past three years and then actually being there is so awesome. It’s still sinking in.

The crowd was amazing, people were awesome, we had lots of fun talking to people and just sharing in the excitement. Crazy feeling being there and feeling the energy that Trump puts out. It’s happy, exciting, uplifting, positive and crazy American. We were also super close to the podium (which is good cause I’m short 😉 )!

Overall, going to a Trump rally was something on my bucket list and is one of the best things I’ve ever done. Will never forget it!

Here are some pictures and videos I took. My phone died right before he started talking, so the pics from during the rally are all from my sister: http://www.thelighthouseofessays.wordpress.com (go check out her blog!)

Hi

So guess what? Basically I forgot to write a post for today. So that kinda sucks. I was really busy last week through yesterday and I think the next few days will be slightly better (hopefully). Which means I will hopefully be able to write some good posts this week for next week!

So for now is just a little school/life update I guess. Hope you’re interested! 😉

My classes are all good, I actually really like Accounting and Economics, although Econ can be fairly overwhelming sometimes. I am taking Honors Econ and it is macro, micro and business Econ in one class (4 credits), so it’s quite a bit. But I still like it. Also I don’t know if I mentioned which classes I was taking this semester, but I am taking 18 credits: accounting 201, honors economics, statistics, nutrition (uggh!), honors texts& critics and aikido.

I am really loving Aikido by the way! It’s a Japanese martial art and it’s super fun! I am not a very physical person (or aggressive) so this is really helping me balance out as well as giving me way more confidence in general. It’s really cool to learn all these moves and etiquette. So shout out to Dad for giving me the nudge into it! 🙂

I have been going to the gym a few times a week too. It feels really good to get moving, work out or swim. Even if I’m mentally tired it keeps me going to do something physical.

Work has been going really well too. I got a part-time work study job at the Army ROTC office on campus. I really like it, it’s just admin stuff but I like being around the military and the people are super friendly and happy. Plus it’s on campus so I can work it around my schedule AND I get to do homework if I’m not busy. So basically all around A-plus!

Other than that I’ve been trying to rest as much as I can. Hopefully this coming week is less busy. I had an exam yesterday and a couple papers due last week, but I think it’s two weeks before anything else other than homework comes my way! (then it’ll all hit me with a bang!) I’ve been fairly stressed out with everything, just trying to balance the homework and try to still get half a weekend in and enjoy the beautiful weather. Sometimes you feel like it’s either or and you can’t balance everything. I just try and then it kinda all works out OK.

Fall is about here, it’s cooler and the trees are turning. I am both happy and sad…I love the summer, but I love fall and the colors, smells, pumpkin, and snow…so yeah, I am happy.

I hope y’all are doing great! I wanted to share one thing I think is important during school, especially college: Aim for A’s, do your best, and what you get will be just fine. Grades are important, and I love to get A’s. But what’s important is that you learn and do your best and then the letter is less important!

Comment down below how you’re doing, and also let me know if you have any suggestions of things you’d like me to write about! Happy to oblige you! Love you guys! Don’t forget to SMILE! 😀 ❤              –Myriam

College Tips: Apps I Use

Hey guys! How are you? ❤ Today I wanted to share with you guys what apps* and programs I use for college, whether it be for planning, scheduling, keeping track of homework, writing assignments, music, etc…. I hope you guys like this! Comment down below if you use any of these, or which ones you do use!


Planning/Scheduling + Homework:

*quick note: I use my physical bullet journal/planner for everything. However I also like to have stuff on my laptop and phone, so this is what I use in addition to my main paper planner.

#1: myHomework– this is an app I found for my laptop. I got it because it was free and simple to use. It keeps track of your schedule as well as homework/assignment due dates. It’s just an easy way for me to input stuff and transfer to my planner or vis versa, and I like to refer to it when I am actually doing the homework on my laptop. It also syncs to the app on your phone, which is great.

#2: iCal– this is the standard Mac calendar app. I put in my daily schedule, work and exams, and other so that I have a general overview that’s far less detailed than my bullet journal or homework list.

Homework: 

#1: My university has an online program that they use to give assignments, some quizzes, syllabuses, grades, etc…and it comes with an app for your phone, which I use a lot. If your college has a program like this I would check and see if there’s an app because it’s really handy!

#2: I use Microsoft Word for most of my papers. Mac comes with their own program but I prefer Word.

#3: Evernote– this is more for notes, but since I hand write my notes I like to use this for exam studying where I can transfer some of my handwritten notes to Evernote and then make study guides or whatever. You can also sync the apps between devices.

#4: Google drive is honestly a life saver when it comes to group projects, and becoming familiar with Docs and Slides is a great idea if you are not already.

#5: I have used Prezi to do some class presentations, but I think either PowerPoint or Google Slides are much easier to use.

Music & More: 

#1: I use both Spotify and Google Play Music (and YouTube of course!). Spotify is on my laptop only cause I don’t want to pay premium for my phone, and I use Google Music on my phone. You can upload your own songs as well as stream radio with them (similar to Spotify).

#2: Quizlet is a program that I use occasionally. Depends on the subject but it can be great to create flashcards and study for exams.

#3: Khan Academy is great for quick videos on subjects you don’t understand. I have found it especially helpful with math. (of course Youtube works just as well)

#4: Occasionally I refer to CliffNotes for book synopsis’. Often they don’t cover exactly what I need for my assignment but they can help get you to the important pages, characters, plot, etc….


What do you all use? Let me know down below, I love to hear it! ❤

 

*just so you guys know I have a Mac laptop and a Samsung phone, so the apps that sync are apps that are available for both OS and Android systems. 🙂
