Alphabet Aerobics

     Hey! I’m back and I’m here today to tell you a little more about myself, but with a twist! I hope you all enjoy!

     Let’s start with the fact that I am an athlete and enjoy playing both basketball and lacrosse. Whenever I’m feeling tense, I go outside and shoot some hoops or play wall-ball. I often find myself craving the adrenaline that you feel when you’re sprinting down the court or zig-zagging down the field.

     Besides sports, I enjoy cozying up with a blanket and a cup of tea, and watching a movie or reading a book. Some of my favorite TV shows are, but are not limited to, The Office, The Vampire Diaries, Sherlock, Riverdale, Stranger Things and The Flash. Every weekend, the most difficult decision for me, is choosing which movie to watch or what episode of The Office to choose that will grab my attention. My love of film has also built my love for writing! I think writing is such an excellent way to express yourself. I like to think of writing as an exquisite creative outlet and find that it’s such a significant part of who I am.

     Another fabulous way I like to express myself is through blogging! I’m so excited to connect with others who have the same interests as me! Although this is only my second post, I’ve already had a blast coming up with blog ideas. I cannot wait to build a bond between my readers and I.

     I’ve mentioned this before, but styling my hair is not a talent I obtain. I can’t style my hair at all! My very glamorous hair routine consists of washing, conditioning, brushing, and putting up into a ponytail. Ponytails truly are an integral part of my life and I wouldn’t be “Mariam” without my classic ponytail. My dad often jokes that you can tell who am I just by looking at the back of my head!

     I would also consider myself a funny person. I absolutely love making people happy and just overall spreading joy. There’s nothing better than cracking jokes with my loved ones. The light energy that comes from making others laugh is my favorite feeling ever! The people that make me laugh the hardest are probably my brothers. I’m totally convinced that even if we weren’t kindred, we would still be best friends in one way or another. Elias and Rashad, if you’re reading this, you guys have a comedy career ahead of yourselves. They make me laugh, no, CACKLE, like no one else.

     If I’m being completely honest, I’m running out of things to talk about so let me talk about my name! My name is Mariam and if you didn’t know that… well, that’s awkward. My grandmother named me and when I was younger, I ALWAYS used to think negatively of my name, but I wouldn’t want any other name :’). According to the internet, my name means a variety of things. I’ve heard “beloved,” “sea of bitterness,” “star of the sea,” and even “grace.” Some of these are a tad bit odd, but I’ll take whatever compliment I can get! 

     Something cool about me that most don’t know is that I’m an ambivert through and through. When I first meet you, I’m as introverted as ever, but once you get to know me, my extroverted ways begin to spring out. Many call me the “life of the party!” I will always enjoy staying home and keeping to myself, but I also hate being lonely and consider it absolutely quotidian to get out a couple of times a day and interact with the world around me.

     This next fact is slightly embarrassing, but I’m a complete romantic. I have a soft spot for Rom-Coms and romance novels. They truly are my guilty pleasure. I cannot believe I’m exposing myself on the internet right now, but hey, what’re ya gonna do?  My favorite series of all time is The Selection and I LOVE watching The Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor In Paradise. It’s all just so sweet! I love it, however, to me, Hannah’s decision is a taboo subject.

     This post is already too long, and I hope I haven’t lost your interest yet! I have just a few more uber important facts about myself left to share so hold on tight, ladies and gentlemen. One of those facts is that my ultimate goal in life is to be extremely vivacious in all that I do. This journey we refer to as life goes by so fast; why waste it being unhappy? My one goal in life, (besides meeting Post Malone haha) is to become infatuated with every aspect of my life. 

     One of my final fun facts ( ooh that ~alliteration~) is that I played the xylophone in kindergarten. I’ve always been into music, and I figured you all should know about the start of my music career as a youngling. When I was in fourth and fifth grade, I had played recorder, and in sixth grade I played the trumpet. Mrs. Sheridan always says that she cannot “carry a tune” and I haven’t heard more relatable words. Although I also “cannot carry a tune,” one of absolute favorite things to do is throw bathroom/shower concerts.

     My final share of the day is that my mom, my best friend, is named Zarmina. My mom is my favorite human being on the planet! I only have brothers, so naturally, my mom and I are very close! I love my mom with my whole heart, but I must admit, she does have a shopping problem. Mom, if you’re reading this, I just want you to know that we do not need those succulents or those candles. Please, put them down. Love you mom!

     Well, I hope you learned a little more about me! I’m so excited to share my experiences with you all throughout the course of the challenge! Thank you so much for visiting! Comment down below if you share any of the same interests as me! I’d love to hear! Come back soon! Until next time…

  1. What’s up Mariam,
    It’s Anna Claire again! I love this blog post, it’s so different and a cool way to organize a post. Hope you like my A-Z post on my blog too! Although I do think that grace, and star of the sea fit with your name and personality, I don’t think sea of bitterness does. You are literally the sweetest person/ best friend ever. Love you sis, you’re doing great on your blog. I love the theme and the collages you added in. Remember, keep it cool (get it AC, air conditioning haha).
    Yo’ BFF,
    Anna Claire

    1. Hey AC!
      We’re happy to have ya back! I’m so glad you like my blog, even though it literally has nothing on yours;) Your blog is so ~aesthetically pleasing~ and I love it. I really hope sea of bitterness doesn’t describe me. It just doesn’t have as nice of a ring to it as grace and star of the sea. Since there are multiple meanings for my name that have to do with water, I’m convinced this might be the universe’s way of telling me that I’m a mermaid and that I’m actually related to CleoR. I’m kidding, but not really. All jokes aside, I’m so excited that you enjoyed my post! Come back soon!
      Yo’ BFF,
