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

 

Done with my first year | Surviving finals

Hello everyone! Hope your day is going fantastic!

I got done with my semester and finals! I finished my first year of university and I can’t believe it went by so fast!

Now that school is over I can finally relax and I feel like I can do stuff again. I can look for a job, work out, re-aquaint myself with my long-lost hobbies and simply be outside in the sun and enjoy spring/summer. What are your plans for the summer?

One of my goals is obviously blogging. I really want to be able to blog at least once a week, but hopefully more. Because I finally have time for it!

So, with that being said, I know that although most universities are done with the semester, some aren’t yet and high school isn’t out yet either. Here are some tips to ‘survive’ finals.


Don’t procrastinate! I know it’s obvious but let’s be real. How many times do you procrastinate your homework or your studying? Especially when it comes down to the last bit of the semester. Sometimes we are so stressed we simply can’t deal with it so we procrastinate. I know, because I did it too. But in the long run it just makes us way more stressed out.

In order to not procrastinate, make yourself a list. Use your planner, computer, phone, notepad. Just write everything down. And I mean literally everything. Like I said in a previous post, having everything written down frees your mind from having to keep track of it so you can focus on actually getting stuff done. Continue reading

“If the Government Does Not Alleviate Stress, Who Will?”

“How could this problem be solved without using the politics of plunder?”

First of all, the politics of plunder, according to the French economist Bastiat, is the “involuntary transfer of wealth from the original owner to the new owner.”

Secondly, the answer to this question was given clearly by President Grover Cleveland who said: “The friendliness and charity of our countrymen can always be relied upon to relieve their fellow-citizens in misfortune. . . . Federal aid in such cases encourages the expectation of paternal care on the part of the government…while it prevents the indulgence among our people of that kindly sentiment and conduct which strengthens the bonds of a common brotherhood.”

Therefore, without the politics of plunder the solution to this question would be the neighborly regard of one man for another. This would invariably solve the problem of who will relieve distress if not the government.
