The Seven Worst Moments In The Life of a New Yorker

Category is: Law & Order intro realness. Yes, they’ve all happened: 1.  The pounding bass line that’s keeping you from sleeping on a weeknight has gotten so irritating that you venture, bleary-eyed and pajama-clad, into the brightly lit hallway of your apartment building only to discover that the offending apartment,[…]

Millennials

Me in 1987, full Millennial mode. Wearing a tiara like the princess I *think* I am. Typical entitled Millennial. My name is Meghan.  I was born in 1984.  I am a Millennial. I grew up reading Goosebumps books on the swing set in my suburban backyard, watching Chris Farley on[…]

Cummin’ Outta Nowhere

How do you talk to women online?  I didn’t think it was so difficult, but my recent experiences suggest otherwise.  Old friends – and I mean like friends from a decade ago – have been getting back in touch with me in a bad-touch way.  What am I trying to[…]

Dream Wedding

Last night I had a dream that I was planning my wedding.  Let’s be absolutely clear:  there was no groom in the picture.  In my dream, I met a wedding planner at a beautiful estate and walked through lush gardens and licked my fingers through a cake tasting, just for[…]

Never Read The Comments

. Cheese and crackers, guys!  I thought I’d scraped the absolute bottom of the Internet, but it turns out there are even more frozen layers than I realized! Since I started my internship, I’ve been learning so much about online journalism!  Namely, to never, ever, ever read the comments!  Here[…]

Bonne Bell Lip Smacker Horoscopes

Strawberry:  This is a time of renewal for you.  This month you will order a sandwich and they will put onions on it, even though you specifically asked for no onions.  You will pick the onions off one by one, but a few will slip through and as you bite[…]

Where Have All The (Gay) (Space) Cowboys Gone?

I wanna do an experiment. Raise your hands if you love science fiction and identify as LGBTQ+ OH DAMN that’s a lot of hands!  Put ’em down, you’re makin me slap-nervous.  Okay, hands down, we can all agree that LGBTQ+ people exist, and that we definitely enjoy all manner of[…]

I’m Sorry, But You’re Wrong

  So I was coming home from a long day at my internship wherein I got really caught up in A Thing and didn’t really eat lunch.  Well I did eat one of those KIND bars – the one I keep in my bag for an emergency – but that’s[…]

SELFIES

Yo, I wasn’t going to say anything about Kim Kardashian on this blog… ever, but I loooove talking about SELFIES.  When I see selfies being attacked, I gotta run to the rescue.  Oh, and slut-shaming.  That too. By now, you’ve seen Kim Kardashians “Internet-breaking” nude (and tastefully censored) selfie.  First,[…]

Quickies!

Finally! A picture of my new haircut!  Taken in my sunny kitchen, on a day when I wore makeup! 2002: Now That’s What I Call Music! 2016: That’s What They Call “Music” Now? — Meghan Sara Karre (@MeghanSaraK) March 2, 2016 For those times when you have more to say[…]

What Is Makeup?

Makeup is very controversial these days!  People are asking all kinds of questions such as, “Is Makeup Feminist?” and “Is Makeup False Advertising?”  The one question NOT being asked is probably the most important one of all, “WHAT IS MAKEUP?!?”  To understand, I’ve broken down the essential elements of makeup[…]

Currently… in March 2016

FEELING:  Hopeful.  I have an appointment with a therapist this week.  After a lot of soul-searching and talking things over, I decided I needed to return to therapy late last year, and finally made contact with a therapist who might be able to take me on as a patient.  I’m[…]
