Summer Solstice

Summer storms roll in like trains, suddenly and in the blink-of-an-eye. These summer storms are my favorite part of this very, very hot season; the storms bring with them a nice cool breeze and beautiful rain. Rain has always amazed me. I’m pretty partial to things that force you to sit inside and curl up…

Life is weird. Life is crazy.

I read somewhere on the worldwide web that, “being totally busy is a wasteful way of living,” and it really stuck with me. Work has been crazy the last few weeks and I feel like I slipped into a routine of waking up before dawn, driving to work, working till the sunset and then driving…

Meg Meets her Weakness

I cannot lie to save my life. If someone pointed a gun at my head and told me to tell some very simple lie or get shot (I know that this is improbable, but you NEVER KNOW), I would tell the lie but you would be able to tell I was lying because I turn…

Meg Meets Strengths

I attended a quick little meeting for work yesterday about focusing on your strengths rather than your weaknesses. This pretty much goes against everything we’ve been taught about work and life and performance reviews. You’re supposed to identify where you need help and fix those areas, but maybe we shouldn’t? Maybe we should just say,…

Meg Meets Pictures of March

March was a crazy month. I was travelling for half the month, and when I wasn’t travelling my body decided that it was a good time to get sick. We are only a quarter of the way into 2014 and I am positive I have spent a majority of that time fighting off bronchitis, a…

Meg Meets Letting Go Of Control, Part Two

Earlier this week, I jetted from LA to San Francisco for Part 2 of my “traveling without a care in the world” trip.  I landed in San Francisco on Thursday morning and took the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) into the city to meet my friend, Shannon, at work. We grabbed a quick Starbucks and…

Meg Meets Letting Go Of Control, Part One

I recently took a few vacation days, which if you know me is actually quite rare. Throughout college, I worked or intern throughout all of/most of my breaks (I still went home for Christmas), I have even been known to work on NYE; so, it is very uncharacteristically of me to take a few days…

Meg Meets the Three Month Mark

I don’t know when I’m going to stop counting the months of my time with Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (PPL) (I feel like I am a high-schooler in their first relationship, celebrating every minor anniversary), but today is not that day. This past week, I celebrated (internally) my three-month anniversary with PPL. In the past three…

Meg Meets Boredom

I really want my “life” blogs to be fun because I feel like I am a semi-fun person, but when I was trying to come up with ideas… I realized I’m really boring. Working has made me boring. I have fallen into a sad routine. I wake up every morning at 6 am, I’m out…

Meg Meets the Year After

2014 officially marks the first year that I haven’t been in school or Montessori since I was three. And, unless I plan to go back for a Master’s degree (which I will not be doing in the near future), it doesn’t look like I will be going back to school anytime soon… It’s hard adjusting to this…
