An Update

IMG_5471

Hi guys and happy Saint Patrick’s Day! It’s been a month since I decided to take a break from blogging. At the time, my mind was getting pulled in a million different directions and I couldn’t find time to sit down and write. My motivation was gone and my sanity was hanging on by a thread. Although I’m not ready to come back as strong as I was before, I thought I would take some time to give an update on everything that has gone on since I announced my break.

Family

The day after I decided to take a break, I went back to my hometown for the weekend to be with my family. I got to go to a high school basketball game which was fun since I haven’t had a chance to get to any CSU games this year. The next week, my boyfriend and I took a trip to our hometown yet again for another basketball game for my sister’s senior night ceremony. For those of you who are unaware, senior night is when the seniors who participate in sports that season are recognized for their participation, grades, and goals for the future. It meant a lot to get to be there for her second senior night.

Midterms

Luckily for me, my midterm week was kind to me. I only had two exams for the week in Bio and Arabic History. My other classes either assigned papers or just used our current grade as our midterm grade. My assignments were super hard and took up almost every minute of my day, but I was just happy that I didn’t have to study a million things.

I passed all my midterms but I recognize that I could have done even better. I guess I’ll just have to use it as motivation for the remainder of the semester. Although there’s a lot of work to be done in order to pull this off, I still have the goal of making it on the dean’s list. I’ve just come to terms with the small chance of that happening. It has nothing to do with my intelligence, but more to do with the number of assignments and exams I am given weekly. I know I’ve said this a lot, but there’s not much downtime between one assignment and another.  That’s pretty common in college and people still manage to pull off getting on the dean’s list somehow, so props to those people! I just know that my brain needs lots of breaks to feel healthy.

Spring Break & Moving Out

As I’m writing this, it’s the last day of spring break. It’s hard to believe it’s already over. It went by in the blink of an eye for me. I didn’t go on any big vacation or do anything special. I just wanted to relax and enjoy my apartment since I’ll be moving out in just a few months. I really took for granted the opportunity to live by myself in a new area. There’s so much I wish I would have done sooner, but there’s no going back to change that so I have to make the best of what I have while I still have it. I’ve spent a lot more time in the backyard of the complex overlooking the lake and studying/reading- even when it’s a bit chilly outside. The view is something I may not get living somewhere else, so I’m trying to appreciate it. I move out in May, although the date has not been set. I just know that I have to be out by May 17. It seemed like such a long time away when I first moved in and somehow the days just crept right up on me. As much as I’ve absolutely hated this place and all it’s breaking amenities, I’m sure I’ll shed a few tears when I’m carrying out the last of my things. It was my first apartment and first time living on my own. It quickly became my home and it sucks having to go.

Finally…

Like I said earlier, I’m not quite ready to get back into writing consistently but I wanted to give everybody an update. I know it’s nothing special but it’s something. I’m still working on myself every day and it’s much harder than some people may think. I’ve faced (and continue to face) so many personal situations that have gotten in the way of my happiness, confidence, and mental health. The battle does not end, no matter how defeated I tend to feel. One day I hope to update everyone on what has been going on behind closed doors, but for now, I want to keep some things private.

I’ll see you guys back here soon!

Love you all.

 

 

 

 

 

Taking a Break.

Hi guys.

I promised to give you guys an update of everything that I’ve been up to today, but I took some time to think and evaluate some things. I realized that at one point I went into blogging because it made me feel good and was a huge stress reliever. It was always important for me to post content that I’m proud of and actual want people to see.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been proud of my posts for months now. I feel like I kept writing because I wanted to keep that part of me alive that wrote for fun. But she’s gone. At least for now.

So I guess this is my official announcement.

I will be taking a break from the blog for a while. I don’t know how long it’ll be, but I promise you this isn’t forever. I’ll most likely post some really short updates from time to time just to let you guys know that I’m alive and well.

Thank you to everyone who has stuck around through my fumbled posts. I promise to take this time off to recoup and find my love for writing again.

Meg On The Mic Ep.6- Quick Apology

Starting My Youtube Channel!

Hi guys!

Those of you who have been around for a while might have noticed that I have an embedded Youtube link in the sidebar of my homepage that takes you to an empty channel titled “Megann Louise.” Well after months of trying to convince myself to take the plunge, I’m finally doing it!

I’ve wanted to make a Youtube channel for as long as I can remember, but I always chickened out. In middle school, I made an account just to learn about what Youtube was, and ultimately got made fun of by my classmates for my videos. Not going to lie- I would’ve made fun of me too. Sis wasn’t cute.

The teasing I got scared me and made me nervous to venture back into the Youtube scene. Like I said, I spent months fighting myself over whether or not I should start posting videos again. In the eight-ish years that I’ve been off Youtube (posting, anyway) I learned a lot about filming and editing that would help bump up the quality of my videos (which wouldn’t be hard since my old videos were filmed using my laptop’s webcam).

I have a lot of plans for my channel and I’m excited to get started! To subscribe, click this link or go to the link in the sidebar to be redirected to my channel!

 

 

My Dream Closet |My Pinterest Plans

Welcome back to the best series for people who hate reading!

For today’s post, I thought I’d dig into my most-pinned-to board on Pinterest- my clothing board. I use this board on days when I feel like shopping but have no money. Pinning things to the board feels like adding clothes to my cart and feeds my addiction without running my bank account dry. I also like to use this board when I find outfits I like so one days when I can’t think of what to wear, I can go to the board and scroll through my pins to find inspiration.

At the time I’m writing this, my board has 6.1k pins (I know, I’m a wreck). I’ve always had an obsession with baggy lived-in clothes as well as neutral colors so that’s mostly what you’ll find on my private clothing board.

The Life of a College Student as Depicted by The Office

College is a rollercoaster of emotions. So is The Office, a television show that college students seem to be obsessed with. I can see why, as so much of what goes on in the show is relatable for any student.

1.  When you check your bank account to see if you can go out to eat with your friends.

2. When your friends go to the library without you.

3. When you tested into a high math on accident.

4. Making sure you’re eating 3 square meals a day.

5. That failed exam?

6. When you decide to change your major after already taking classes you won’t need.

7. Reviewing the entire semester’s material for final exams.

8. When it’s time to go but your professor keeps lecturing.

9. When the friends you made fall semester don’t talk to you during the spring semester.

10. Coming back to your home town after working your ass off all semester.

I could go on forever with more ways that The Office is just soooo relatable, but

 

 

15 Vines I’m Still Quoting

It’s been two long, painful years without Vine. To mourn the tragic death on its anniversary, I have compiled 15 vines that I catch myself quoting all the time. Rest in peace, legend. We miss you.
