So – you’ve found my blog! (Or most likely if you’re reading this at the time it gets published, I led you here and in which case, thanks for humoring me).
To be completely upfront here, I hate introductions and I’m only writing this first post because that’s what my online introduction to blogging class told me to do. It also told me that I should write some information about myself and my reasons for starting this blog, so here it goes because I like to give the people what they want:
My name is Megan. I’m 24. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in creative writing and I work full-time in a field not in any way related to that. I am in a relationship. We have an apartment and a cat. Life is good.
I started this blog because, as I mentioned, I don’t work in the field I studied for. Obviously having a full-time job and a place to live comfortably at my age is a wonderful thing, so please don’t mistake me for being ungrateful. But I am prone to quarter-life crises, and I want to make sure that while I have the time and energy, I pursue something I’m passionate about and share it with other people because it’s just more fun that way rather than keeping it all to myself.
I have simple tastes and think it’s the little things in life that matter most, so when I sat down and thought about what I wanted to share with people, I thought of what made me happy. Here is what I found: I like finding the perfect soundtrack for the moment, it puts a spring in my step when my eyeliner swishes just right at the tips, and if I’m able to impart any tiny piece of wisdom to someone and make his or her day easier, I feel I accomplished something great.
Keeping that in mind, what you’ll find here are some of the musical gems I dug out of the black hole that is Youtube, an array of triumphs and misfires as I experiment with new make-up looks, and then some of my rambling thoughts that hopefully you can relate to and that make you laugh or feel reassured, if that’s what you need that day.
So grab some headphones, put your best face on, and enjoy!
