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…

Riesling

I had a plan for how I wanted to start this but between the 5 minutes it took to turn on my laptop and open my document I lost the thought. So, I’ll start by saying this: usually my posts have a main “theme” or “topic” to them or however your mind perceives it. But…

Dreaming of Elsewhere

My ideal morning. Right now I am sitting on my bed wearing an oversized crewneck and wool socks, eating a few too many Reece Cups. The Office is on but I find myself staring out the window into the darkness. Dreaming of elsewhere. I wake up in my bed engulfed by my fluffy comforter. It’s…

Stress relief

I really wanted to write today but felt like my brain was fried. It’s not something you can force, ya know. I put my inspiration into something else and started a positive journal, although I don’t like the word “journal”. It’s more of a doodling stress-releaser for me. You know those adult coloring books that…

Mom

Mom. You know I’ve never been good with words. You have been with me through every step throughout life. First steps into preschool, middle school bullies, high school proms, driving me to college, and watching me receive my diploma. You have supported me and have spared endless time to listen. From helping me when receiving…

THE PLAYLIST FOR WHEN YOU’RE DRIVING AND THE GOLDEN HOUR SUN IS MELTING INTO YOUR WINDOWS AND YOU ZONE OUT OF LIFE.   Halsey – Eyes closed This whole album is amazing. But this song is hands-down beautiful. Her voice is so vibrant and flows out the speakers in a way I can’t even describe….

JUST DO IT.

This is your weekly reminder to do whatever the fuck you want to do in life. Craving ice cream on that “diet”? Dude. Go to McDonald’s and get a Mcflurry with extra M&M’s. (The best one, duh) And if their ice cream machine is broken (because when is it not broken) then go to Walmart…

Yellow Balloon

I think about this moment. A lot. My junior year of college I took class titled, Appalachian: Land & the People. (Side note, if you attend Ohio University I highly recommend this class. Even if you just need a few credits it is extremely interesting.) BUT ANYWAYS. We went on a field trip and had…

Versions

There’s so many versions of me. There’s Athens Megan. The girl who wears Burks with everything and hikes every trail she finds. Carefree without a worry in the world. Constantly saying yes to everything and never stops. Anything to keep the mind busy. Coastline Megan. When you reach the coast and take in a deep…

New Projects

Today I discovered this amazing, most beautiful park full of wildflowers and endless trails. The rain was pouring on my drive there but managed to stop just as I pulled in. I parked my car and opened my door to get out. After taking a second to breathe it all in, I just stood there….
