My Travel Bucket List

I’ve never sat down and thought about places I’d like to visit… at least not until I started spending more time with people who are all about traveling.

I’ve only ever really left the country once and I was too young to remember much of it. I hope to make more trips out of the country in the future (hence some of the locations I’ll mention), but the U.S. also has some gorgeous locations to explore!

 

1. Chicago

2. Los Angeles

3. Amsterdam

4. Santorini

5. Miami

6. New York City

7. Toronto

8. Brisbane

9. Paris

10. Barcelona

 

Do you have a bucket list of places to visit? Where would you go?

Megann Louise in 2020

Happy New Year! I hope everyone celebrated safely!

I, for one, rang in the new year in my pajamas. That’s right, no big “roaring 20’s” party for me. In typical Megann fashion, I was feeling a little under the weather so I decided to stay home and watch the ball drop from the comfort of my parents’ house.

I spent the last couple days of 2019 laying out the groundwork for what will be a transformative year for MegannLouise. I made it my New Year’s Resolution to make big changes with my online presence, so of course my top priority is to get my blog looking neater. I have so many crazy ideas that I can’t wait to get started on. There’s so much I can’t really share yet, but trust me- it’s going to be wild.

I can say that I will be posting regularly now, which has been something I’ve really struggled with in the past. It’s crazy to think that I finally figured out how to keep things going without big gaps when I used to pull my hair out over it. We’re going to leave inconsistency in 2019!

I’m also hoping to step my photography game up so I can include more pictures in my posts! I’m a visual person so that’s always my favorite part of reading others’ uploads.

OH! I plan to be using my Facebook page a lot more this year, so click here or the link below to like and follow along with everything I share on there!

This year is going to be so full of change and I can’t wait to see where it takes us!

If you missed it, I made a Facebook page! It’s where I’ll be sharing behind the scenes work, life updates, and other fun things you won’t see here! Check it out and drop a like!

Let Me Update Ya

I figured it was about time to update everyone on my schooling and other things going on. I finished the semester up last Wednesday and most of my final grades seem to be in (although there’s a couple classes that will definitely wait until the day final grades are due to release them).

After a long semester, I got a 99% on my math final which gave me an A in the class. In one of my history classes, I got 100% on my final and managed to get a final grade of an A in the class. After cramming for my bio exam only 5 hours before the exam (typical meg fashion) I got an 87% and ended the semester with an A in the class. Although I never took a real exam for my communication class, I ended the semester with a B. Taking my intro to com class online was a disadvantage to me for a few reasons- tech difficulties being one. I missed a few assignments due to wifi slip-ups and computer crashes, but I’m still happy I was able to mostly make up for them at the end of the semester. My Middle Eastern History and Bio lab final grades are not in yet and I expect that they won’t be for a while, so I can’t really determine what my GPA will be just yet.

I’m moving out of my apartment on Wednesday and heading back to my hometown for the summer. Next fall I’ll be moving into an apartment much closer to campus so I guess leaving the place I’ve called my second home for the past nine months will be worth it. It’s still going to be really hard to say goodbye to my bigger bedroom and own kitchen though. I’m really grateful for the opportunities this year has given me. I’ve gotten to live alone, and who knows if I’ll ever get to do that again?

I’m looking into getting a job this summer after I get a bit of time to settle back in at home. I’d like to be working a lot to save up for rent, groceries, etc. once school starts back up. So before I really start looking around for work, I’m hoping to spend lots of time with my friends while I can.

That being said, in my free time I plan to be writing a bit more. It’s been really weird not writing. I’ve had quite a few impulses to start writing but I didn’t want to start posting if I was just going to stop abruptly again due to school. But now I have a few months to get myself together and write a little more. I’ve got some ideas for the future of this site and I’m hoping to implement them this summer.

Thank you to everyone who supported me when I took a semester off last year and when I went back to school in the fall. Everyone’s kind words and well wishes these past nine months have been really appreciated. I’m super excited to go back in the fall (I know, who says that?!) and explore my major even further.

Also, I’ve changed my update schedule to every Monday at noon, so keep an eye out for my new posts!
