About Me

Hi and welcome to my blog! My name is Myriam, I’m 17 years old and in 12th grade. I study using the Ron Paul Curriculum. I will post the essays that I write for school here.

I love baroque music, skiing, reading, Sudoku puzzles, origami, playing ping-pong and making jewelry. My favorite bird is a hummingbird and my favorite animal is a dolphin.

I like photography, and take lots of pictures.

For more about me see my “Liebster Award” page.

If you have any questions or have advice on my writing, please leave a comment below. 🙂

Also, if you notice that one of the YouTube videos embedded in a post is not longer available or does not play, please let me know via a comment so that I can remove it or replace it. 🙂

    1. I’m going to college, not yet sure if it’ll be community college for a couple of years first and then finish my bachelors, or if I’ll go straight into college, but yeah, I’d like to become an architect.

      How about you?

      1. Idk yet. I still have a lot of school to finish first. But, I really don’t need to go to college. I already own my business and the plan is to get married and have a family. But, at the same time I never would know when I might need that degree.

    1. Hi Rebecca! I sell my jewelry online here (www.myriamswesternjewelry.com). But I can’t say I’ve been selling anything. It was a good experiment business. I couldn’t put enough time into making it successful online, so yeah! Oh well, I still make it as a hobby, though, and I may sell it at some markets. 🙂

          1. That is awesome! I am sure that it is best to do what you enjoy. Like in my case I used to sell bread but I just didn’t enjoy it. So I switched to cake making and decorating and though it doesn’t make as much money I enjoy it.

    1. Hi Odessa!
      You mean the links? For that you would have to go to your “links” on your dashboard, make your link, select which category it belongs to. Then open your widgets, select “links” and then under it’s options select the category that your song is under. It should then appear.
      Tell me if this is what you wanted! 🙂

  1. I like your new theme. The only glitch is that you can’t see the comments. They are in grey and the font is also in grey. You have to really strain to read it. It’s minor, but it might be something you want to think about.

  2. In response to your poll about favorite languages:

    I chose “other.” I enjoy speaking to my brother in Backwards English. We just say each word backward, and if we talk fast enough no one can understand us!

    1. You mean the stars???
      If so, this is how:
      1) Hover over “feedback” on your dashboard and click on “ratings”.
      2) Once on that page, click on “settings”, which is a button on the top of the page.
      3) There you can adjust where they appear, etc…
      4) Under “advanced settings”, on that same page, you can choose whether they will be stars or thumbs up/down.
      Hope this helps! 🙂

  3. Thanks for the translation of Scherza Infida. Keep up the Baroque. Bach was my first love, when I was 13.

    (By the way it should be “your” opinion: “you’re” is short for “you are”)

  5. I had a question about your blog. Your menu has that thing where if you hover the mouse over it more options come up. I was wondering how you got it categorized like that. When I make a menu like that I can’t change the name of it, and the think you hover over is an actual page. How do I change this?
    Thanks for your time!

    1. So, on your menu you can have pages, posts, categories, anything. When you go to the tab to customize your menu (under appearance) you can rearrange the menu to show what you want. I made different categories for my essays, but also pages. For example, my School Essays tab is a page, but under it are other pages for the different subjects. The tabs under the different subjects are categories.
      To make categories you go to the tab under posts, on your left. The home page is actually a link to your blog.
      When I write a new post, I choose which categories I want it to be under, so that when someone clicks on my menu category they’ll see that post too.
      I hope this helps!!! 🙂 If you have more questions I’ll be happy to answer them!

    1. Thank you so much!!! I really enjoy doing this sort of thing, and it kinda comes natural. I’ve had this blog for about two years, and I’ve gone through several themes, but this is the best so far! 🙂

  7. Hi Myriam you asked me on my blog if photography was hard. It was hard when I started and I had many photos with peoples heads chopped off 😀 But I started doing more and slowly got better. Practice is the main key. I hope you have a nice day!

    1. Baroque music is music from the Baroque period, also called the period of Enlightenment. It came before the Classical and Romantic eras. A few main composers from the Baroque were Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frederick Handel, Antonio Lucio Vivaldi and Claudio Monteverdi. Mass in B minor (Bach), Water Music (Handel), and Four Seasons (Vivaldi), are the most common and well-known works of these composers. Most music from this time is unknown, but I still love it!
