Meg on the Mic Ep.1- The Intro

Welcome to Meg on the Mic!

Today’s episode is all me rambling on about my plans for Meg on the Mic and essentially begging you to stick around and give it a chance. The first real episode should be up in a couple weeks, so stay tuned!

Welcome to The New MegannLouise.com!

Hey guys!

You may have noticed that things have been changing on megannlouise.com. I have been playing around with settings and displays in hopes of making this site exactly how I’ve always wanted it. And finally, after months of tweaking things, I have figured it out. Welcome to the new megannlouise.com! Some articles have been removed and some new features were created. Let me show you around .

Well, for starters, the entire layout has changed. You’ll notice that categories are displayed across the top bar of the webpage. This is so you can specify the content that you are interested in reading about. All articles in each category are sorted from latest to earliest. The categories may change, but all of my content is still available using the sidebar on the right.

The next addition to the site are the two categories that you do not see listed yet.

I had been wanting to add new content formats for a while, but had no idea how I wanted to do that… until now. Introducing- Meg on the Mic! This is a podcast that will feature friends, family, classmates, and other special guests. The first episode will be up on Saturday (November 10) and will be a short and sweet series opener hosted by yours truly.

Videos will be posted on occasion in many different styles. I’m not sure when videos will be up yet, so keep your eyes and ears open! The best way to stay informed would be to follow my site with your email, which you can do by entering your email address into the provided bar on the right side of the screen.

I’m super excited to get the new site up and running. It feels like I’m finally doing things how I’ve wanted to do them. I hope you guys are welcoming to the changes and like what I start to do with my site.

If you guys have any additional ideas, let me know!

I’ll see you guys Saturday with episode one of Meg on the Mic!

Q & A

I’ve been promising a Q & A post for a few months now and I’ve been putting it off. I have no excuse for it. I’m just super lazy. But I’m finally here to answer your questions!

Before we begin, I would like to thank everybody who submitted questions. You guys had some really good ones! However, if I were to answer all of them, I’d be here all day. So I chose some of my favorites to answer. Brace yourselves. Get your popcorn. Here we go.

Q. Where have you been?

A. School has taken up most of my time lately. I’ve been a very busy girl between school and maintaining what itty bitty social life I have left. And those are my top priorities, trumping my site. I love writing, but it is just a hobby for me. If (and when) my site becomes a steady source of income, I will put more work into keeping it regularly updated. Until then, I’ll post whenever I find time and inspiration.

Q. What happened to your Spotify playlist?

A. It’s still up! Just like this site, I took a bit of a break from it. But I’m going to update it soon and add my morning favorites.

Q. What is the most important thing that you have learned while living on your own?

A.  I’m not a kid anymore. I can’t rely on my parents to do the dishes, laundry, etc. It’s all me. And it’s taught me to be more grateful for everything they have done for me. There are a lot of hard days when I feel too drained to even clean a fork. And now I understand how they felt whenever I took advantage of their housekeeping.

Q. If you had a caution label, what would it say?

A. “Caution: heavily indecisive.”

Q. Do you have any pets?

A. Back at home I have a cat. He’s a real pain in the butt. Where I’m living now, I have three fish- two goldfish and a cichlid. My two goldfish (Brutus and J.C.) live together in the fishbowl in my kitchen, while Usain (my cichlid) lives in my living room.

Q. What do you want to do once you graduate?

A. This is a good question… I don’t know what I want to do yet. I just changed my major yet again and it’s made me feel more comfortable in the direction I’m heading in. However, I’m still not 100% sure where it will take me. I’ve considered some different options such as being a public relations specialist or social media coordinator. But those seem so heavenly that they’re nearly impossible. So until I find something that really interests me, I’m going to keep an open mind.

Q. What is your favorite thing to snack on while studying?

A. My favorite thing to snack on period is Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream. I’ve always got some in my freezer!

Q. Would you recommend CSU to a graduating senior interested in film?

A. Well, before I changed my major, I was a film major. It’s a wonderful place to be. Everyone is so diverse and see things in so many different ways that it feels like being a kid in a candy shop whenever you get to hear all these different perspectives. The film department offers you so many great opportunities, too. Just recently I met a film producer from Cleveland, Tyler Davidson, as he was promoting his new film Galveston. He came to my class and answered everyone’s questions about the film industry. There’s also opportunities for studying actors and filmmakers to connect through the database of actors. If you find yourself really interested (and I mean really interested) in film, this school would be a great choice.

Q. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

A. Hopefully working somewhere that I am very happy and comfortable at. I’d love to be married with a family and a pup, living somewhere quiet and cozy all year round.

Q. Who is the last person you called?

A. My mom.

Q. Have you made any friends in school that you want to keep in your life after graduation?

A. Of course! I have made quite a few friends that I really connect with. It was hard making good friends in the small town I grew up in, but at my college there is so much diversity that it’s easy to find people that are like me. I love all the friends I’ve made here at CSU, and I really hope they all stay in my life.

Q. Where do you get your clothes?

A. I love Burlington, Marshall’s, and Plato’s Closet a whole bunch. They’re my favorite places to visit because there’s always really nice clothes for decent prices. But there’s also times when I feel the urge to shop, but don’t have the money for it. That’s when I go to Romwe and Shein. They’re super affordable, and have so many pieces to choose from so I end up spending hours online looking through everything!

 

 

I’m Back!

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted (surprise surprise). School started to get really time consuming, as you all can imagine. I had to take some time away from writing so I still had time to relax between school and my many homework assignments. School hasn’t been too bad so far. I’ve definitely had to fight with myself to get out of bed and go, but the classes don’t suck as much as I had expected them to. Well, with the exception of one class, but that’s for another time. We just passed the midpoint of the semester last week so I’ve been counting down the days to winter break.

This post is short and sweet because I just want to let everyone know I’m alive and well.

I’m going to be doing a Q&A post as soon as I sort through everybody’s questions and pick my favorites (you guys had some really interesting questions) so be on the look out for that in the next couple days! Also, if you’re new here and would like to ask some questions, you can do that for the next 24 hours on my Instagram story  (@meg.rosecrans).

I hope all is well with you guys, and I can’t wait to get back into things. I promise I’ll try harder to get content up, and this will be the last time I catch myself slipping for so long.
