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 a Different Path

The past 22 years of my life, more specifically the past 16 years of education, never prepared me for the emotional roller-coaster ride that happens once you graduate college. These past weeks have been filled with meetings after meetings, countless applications and cover letters, analyzing every choice I have made, and at my lowest of…

Meg Meets the Ocean

Lately, I have been drawn to water. I feel like the ocean has been representing my current life stage. Then I started researching what water or the ocean symbolizes and I realized how much it actually did describe me. One theory I found said that the ocean represents life and living, the waves symbolize the…

Meg Meets Life After Diploma

I recently graduated from The Ohio State University (please don’t think I’m a pretentious jerk for using the ‘the’), and I have absolutely no idea what is in store for me next.  Until this past month, I have been working at the Ohio Union and the City of Gahanna while taking classes; and now I’m…

Meg Meets Change

For me, the month of May was chock-full of changes and learning.  Changes that I welcomed with open arms and changes that I had no say in and I want to stop, all of which I am learning from. This month, I started an intense one-month class at Ohio State referred to as MayMester, I…

What’s Hot: Originality

“Who am I?” has always been a question on the forefront of many young adults. This is a time in our lives where we are attempting (and typically, failing) to find out who we are.  College, and the immediate years following, are a time for experimentation, a time for finding out who you really are….

Juggling Too Much

I feel like our generation is never content, I have to be doing 18,000 things at once in order to feel like I am accomplishing anything, and then because of my intense need to overextend myself, all aspects are lacking.  Why does our generation feel like we need to be constantly connected to people, items,…

The Complexities of Impending Graduation

I almost started this off by saying I was 20, but I’m not – I am twenty-one (I spelled it out because I believe being twenty-one looks classier like this, as opposed to 21 – sue me, I broke AP style).  I am twenty-one, a senior in college and I am as unprepared for the…

How Firm Thy Friendship

This weekend at Ohio State was the 100th Homecoming, and emotions were high.  It was a beautiful weekend filled with laughs, football and friends – it was perfect.  In moments where I have a lot of feelings and thought, I am reminded of  the song ‘I Don’t Want to Miss A Thing,’ and let me…

Get involved! I mean it.

I am currently a junior at Ohio State, and until this week I was not entirely aware how involved I am. I am a member of the Public Relations Student Society of America (and if you are interested in a Communications degree, I highly suggest you join PRSSA this fall), and I will be a…
