My website where I sold the jewelry that I make (Myriam’sWesternJewelry) no longer exists. I cancelled it because it wasn’t making me any money, and it cost a lot. So instead of selling at myriamswesternjewelry.com I will hopefully be selling on my Etsy shop. If you’re interested you can check it out here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MyriamWesternJewelry. I don’t have that much on right now, but I’ll be updating it soon! Also, the email, firstname.lastname@example.org, is no longer valid!
Hello everybody! It’s been ages since I last posted! I’ve been so busy, but now I’m back and I wanted to tell you all what had been going on. But first, how are you all doing? Are you looking forward to summer? I am. 🙂
So as most of you probably knew, I was homeschooled my entire life, including through high school. This makes high-school graduation and getting into college a bit different. First of all, I decided upon the following as my course of study in college and university.
-Two years at community college for an A.A.S. in Interior Design.
-Then transfer to university (to which community college is an extension) and finish two more years to get a B.S. in Business Managament.
After talking with a couple of people at the university, this option was presented: a four year program where you can earn two degrees. One major plus in the program is that because I am earning a technical degree (I.D.) I don’t need to take any of the standard “core” university classes, such as sociology and phycology. Instead of doing the typical four year route, in which you spend two years basically studying “core” classes, I get to spend them studying something I love, and something that gives me a skill to use to fund the rest of my higher education and after. I’m really excited to start it!
Usually getting into college requires an SAT or ACT, but because I am entering into community college first I only needed to take my GED, or HiSET–the high school equivalency test. Which brings me to the point of why I wasn’t posting. I was studying!
I am really happy to say that the studying payed off and I passed all five of my HiSET tests with amazing scores! The five tests were writing, reading, math, science, and social studies. Out of all of them writing was my weakest, but still a great score.
I graduated from high school on Friday May 12th. And, on the same day, passed my driving test and got my driver’s license. So, I’m done. It all happened at once, but now it’s also all finished at the same time.
Now that I’m finished with school, I want to work over the summer and relax before college starts this fall. Hopefully I’ll be able to write on this blog a lot more. I really want to. And now that I’m done with school, this blog will be more about my hobbies, and what I’m doing. I also want to write about some things I’ve learned about applying for college, scholarships and that kind of stuff; studying tips; my opinions on things.
I’d like to post at least once a week, I think I can do it!
Thanks for reading, and if you haven’t already, please follow me!
Have a great rest of your day!
Check it out! This one’s pretty easy, so try it out! It will even work with normal note/printer paper. Just cut it to size (6″ x 6″ or 4″ x 4″) and then fold. You could even color/draw on the paper first and then fold. Have fun!
I got a camera for my birthday and I’ve been trying to take good looking pictures and practice some tips. I haven’t had much of a chance to get out and try it on landscapes yet, but here are a few pictures that I’ve taken. Tell me what you think! Continue reading
