The Roaring Twenties: How we’re all royally screwing it up

I recently read a book by May Jay, Ph.D. entitled, “The Defining Decade: Why your twenties matter – and how to make the most of them now.” In it she discusses how a vast majority of twentysomethings are wasting away their twenties because they think that the “thirty-is-the-new-twenty” culture tells us these years don’t matter…

I’m not exactly saying no…

I’ve taken a hiatus from a lot of things. It started accidentally – I’m not going to say that I had a grandiose plan to take a break from watching TV every night and instead start running again. I’m not going to say that I decided to cut cold turkey and delete all my dating…

7 Signs It’s Time To Move Out of Your Parents’ House

I love my parents; I was blessed with a pretty cool set. They’re funny, they swear, they know how to crack a good one-liner and they also know when to lend a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on… they’re pretty much fantastic. But they also got a pretty awesome daughter; I mean I’m…

23 Things I learned This Year

Today, I turned 23. This isn’t momentous by any means, I mean this is barely any time lived on this earth, but it’s all the time in the world to me. So, I wanted to do a post about the 23 things I learned during this past year on this beautiful planet: 1. I learned…

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 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 a Flashback

Four years ago, I had just come home for holiday break after my first quarter at Ohio State University. A lot has changed since then. For starters, the school has seen a new president, experienced a few football scandals, switched to semesters, and given me a degree and some of the best relationships a person…

Meg Meets Life

I recently moved back in with my parents and started working full-time, which is just the long way of saying I became a typical 20-something. It is really weird adjusting to being accountable to others; I now have to let people know if I am going to be out of town or not make it…
