That Can Wait: What to Purchase NOW!

If you’re anything like me you want to purchase EVERYTHING before you move into your first apartment – in fact, I am typing this after spending an entire paycheck at IKEA (I still don’t move until the 3rd of July). Buying new things and styling your first apartment is really exciting! You get to pick…

Pack This! 5 Tips for Local Moving

Moving is exciting and a great way to revamp your life, but it is also extremely stressful and the worst. Having moved every year of my life from 2009-2013 and now again in 2015 to my first “big girl apartment” – I thought I would share with you a few moving tips if you’re moving…

Movers and Shakers: 5 Things to do in Shaker Heights

Shaker Heights is a very diverse suburb of Cleveland, established in 1911, and my soon-to-be new neighborhood! I am so excited to explore and eat my way through this very fun and exciting town.

#ThankfulThursday: A Piece of Plastic

On March 6, I was delivered a lovely pink plastic bracelet (I mean, I purchased it – it didn’t just show up out of the blue – side note, if you find yourself wanting to send me lovely gifts, shoot me an email for my address 🙂 ). Inside this piece of plastic was a…

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…

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,…
