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

 

300 Followers | 4 Year Anniversary | Why I Blog

Hello everyone! I have been thinking lately of how much fun I have been having writing blog posts and connecting with other bloggers and growing my little blog family. It’s pretty cool to think that 300 people actually care about what I write. It’s both a small and big number at the same time. Small cause growth is always on the horizon, big because it’s like a quarter of my town. 😛

Anyway, it got me started about why I blog. So, I wanted to tell my wonderful three hundred followers and anyone else who happens to read this post, that I appreciate you guys so much and why I blog.


Starting to Blog:

Back in 2014 I started this blog for school. I started an online homeschool curriculum for high school and all the students had blogs on which they would post the weekly essays for the various subjects. It was a really great way for students to help each other out, parents to read essays, and a unique way of gaining confidence in writing (see here for how it helped me).

After 3 years of high school and essay posting (visit my menu and explore my earlier days of essay writing, some of which is memorable, most of which I would like to forget) I graduated high school and started college. That summer I had vague thoughts on how I wanted to blog through college, but once college actually started the stress overwhelmed me and the blog was lost under the mounds of homework.

Then, second semester around, I kinda re-vamped it.

  1. I had learned far better how to manage school, stress, and life (probably the most valuable skill learned in college lol)
  2. I wanted to monetize the blog and make money
  3. I remembered how much I had enjoyed writing posts on baroque music

A Big Impact

Was there something that occurred in my life that impacted it? I believe there was and that was the time I went to private school and what followed.

I am a homeschooler and I have always been one. However, when I was twelve years old, my family decided to try private school. My time there was one week. Then my parents withdrew me from the school and I returned to homeschool.

While in private school I learned several valuable things. The first was that I was ahead of my age in schooling. Second, that I learned a lot more with homeschooling than in private school. Third, that the lifestyle it brings (homework, late hours, little time with family, etc…) is definitely not for me.

Soon after we found the Ron Paul Curriculum and I began to study using it. This changed my life. Because of the way that the curriculum is taught I began to love studying a lot. Today I am determined to study very well and pursue a college degree.

Three Stories I Would Include In My Autobiography

The first story I would include in my autobiography is my first theater experience, which was pretty awful. I was very little, about five or six. The play was the Jungle Book and I was a monkey. I was in the costume, back stage the whole play, except for about five minutes when the monkeys sang a silly little song. I was very bored and hot. Overall, not a great experience.

My second story is about skiing, my favorite (and only) sport. I live about forty-five minutes away from a small ski resort. Two years ago, when I was twelve, I got my first pair of skis and boots. Continue reading
