Different Versions

June 6th, 2018. 8:23PM. It’s been awhile. Here and there I’ll scribble down a few notes in my journal or in my phone, nothing serious, but moments I want to remember 3 years from now, 13 years from now. I stopped sharing my thoughts and kept them to myself for the past few months. Someone…

Post-College Job Search

I’ve started and restarted this blog post endless of times, waiting until I finally felt ready and stable enough to write these words. Looking back, college holds my all-time favorite memories. Sneaking into The Athens Insane Asylum, day-drinking when the temperature hits above 50,  and making friends who will always hold a place in my…

DIY Pressed Flowers

My mom’s birthday was December 28. I brought her home flowers and a card stating how grateful I am to have her and how I aspire to at least be half the woman she is. Seriously, my mom is fucking awesome. She’s my therapist, bartender, hair dresser, and proves how working hard gets you places…

2018

You tested me. You dug everything out of my soul until I was forced to plant new seeds and grow. You gave me new faces and new outlooks. You taught me to hate the best parts of myself and love the worst.   So 2018, we’re setting some boundaries here. I’m in control in this…

Stay Humble

It’s Christmas Eve! This morning I crawled out of bed, threw on my robe, and sat by the fire place with my coffee. After drinking too much caffeine I took a hot shower, curled my hair, put on my Christmas pajamas, and chilled. My mom and I then made cut-out cookies from scratch as she…

Dear Stranger.

This is just a quick little note. Last night I felt the dreaded first sign of sickness creeping into my throat. My body somehow manages to get sick every single Christmas and it’s getting so old. I drank hot tea and crashed, only to wake up every hour on the dot even though I was…

Life Tips

Life Tips. By Megan, for you.   Make your bed. Every damn morning. I can’t tell you the last time I didn’t make my bed. I’ve tried to live life a little messier by ignoring my shambled sheets, but I just can’t. Making my bed first thing sets me up for a fresh day. It’s…

Winter. Comfort. Mostly discomfort.

I bet you clicked on this link looking for some juicy gossip on my life, right? Sorry. I don’t have any. Unless you count Rob Dyrdek blocking me on Instagram. Sad days.   I’ve been in hiding for the past two months. Incognito. AKA: seasonal depression.   See, about once a week I do this…

Hidden Gems

I love exploring places most people don’t know about. The type of places you hear by word-of-mouth. Here are my favorite places I’ve been through by word-of-mouth! Some of these I’m sure you’ve heard of, but hey, who knows! Moonville Tunnel I first went to Moonville Tunnel my sophomore year of college. It’s an abandoned…

Sun Rise

Yesterday I was looking at my bucket list. Reading the things I’ve done and the things I have left, and found myself adding more adventures. Okay, I can check off adopting a dog. Did that. Went to Alaska, that one is checked off too. Took a tumbling class, made an ass out of myself in…

Slow Down.

This has been a long week. I’m stressed, I’m overwhelmed, and I feel like I’m running out of time. I know that sounds ridiculous because I’m only 22, but geez you guys!! Time goes by so fast. It’s already the end of October and I still haven’t watched Hocus Pocus or drank hot apple cider….

OCTOBER FIFTEENTH

I don’t mind fall. It’s not that I dislike the season…I just think it’s hard for me to enjoy knowing it welcomes winter with an ease. The season is glorified over leaves changing to a beautiful yellow or burnt orange and the earlier days causing chilly nights. Bonfires and s’mores. Bon Iver. Hot coffee. Pumpkin…
