I Need Your *Advice*

image source: Wikimedia Commons Dear Reader: I need your help. I’m addicted… TO ADVICE COLUMNS! Ever since I was old enough to reach for the coveted “Lifestyles” section of the local newspaper. That’d be the Press & Sun Bulletin, FYI. The “Lifestyles” section back then had everything I needed to know: the funnies the[…]

Dream Journal Ultimate

  Every so often, I discover an app that totally changes my life. DREAM JOURNAL ULTIMATE is such an app!   I’m been using this app for the past four months, and I’ve logged well over a hundred dreams on it! I’ve always *wanted* to keep a dream journal, but[…]

Can’t-Miss Podcast: Bear Brook

  photo via the Bear Brook website   Bear Brook, a podcast from New Hampshire Public Radio, is my latest obsession!   I don’t even know how I heard of it, but damn, I’m glad I did! Consider this your *nudge* to check it out. I listened to almost every episode while working late[…]

My Favorite True Crime Podcasts

Aaaahhhhhhhh, October! When a young gal’s mind turns to TRUE CRIME PODCASTS! If I had a dime for every time I met another person who is as obsessed with true crime podcasts as I am, I’d be like, “What the heck am I going to do with all of these dimes?”[…]

Hate-Watching “Snog, Marry, Avoid”

  Generally speaking, I’m not a huge fan of makeover shows anyway. in the Venn Diagram of “Things I Hate” and “Things I Watch Ironically,” “Makeover Shows” stay squarely in the former category. Maybe it’s the little girl inside me, who remembers being forced to wear way-too-uncomfortable tights with dresses,[…]

Highlights From My 33rd Twirl Around The Sun

July 31st is my birthday! I have been a bit quiet about it on here… frankly, I’ve been quiet about a lot on here, this past year. This year was intense — by which I mean, it had some of the highest highs and the lowest lows — but overall, I’m surprised[…]

Facebook Is Past Its Peak… But What Do We Do Now???

  Ahh yes, Facebook. I have been on Facebook for the past 12 years or so. 2005? 2006? Yeah, I remember Facebook’s humble roots. I remember Facebook when it was TWITTER! You had to have a college email address to sign up, and the only thing you could do was[…]

Getting Back On The Horse

  I have no idea why, BUT, I’ve been having the hardest time posting anything here.   My “drafts” folder has been GROWING and GROWING!!! and yet, it’s just so hard to be satisfied with anything enough to hit “publish” on it.   I’m a firm believer in just getting back[…]

GOOD NEWS! A Day Late, And Hastily Thrown Together TBH

  Well, what can I say? It’s a combination of PMS, Mercury Retrograde, generally overcast weather, and terrible depression! I haven’t been sleeping well, and when I am, my dreams are really shitty: like, I had a dream that RuPaul invited me to camp with him at Burning Man, and[…]

GOOD NEWS! It’s SHOWTIME!!!

  Oh, hello, there! Tonight is OPENING NIGHT for The Bloody Deed of 1857! I am all kinds of nervous, and I’ve been buzzing about all week long. Which mostly means hanging around on street corners in the East Village, talking aloud to myself about murders that took place in the nineteenth[…]

LOST: my inspiration. FOUND: this stuff…

  So I just told you in my boat post that I’ve been struggling with finding “inspiration.” That’s pretty harsh, but it’s true. I’ve been actively searching for, but (largely) failing to find, things that excite me. Apologies in advance for sounding like a total jerk, but I’ve been going through a big period[…]

Fixing A Hole

  I wrote over 400 words in this draft. Then I erased it all. Call this “Take Two.”   I’m very proud of myself for writing more in this blog. There was a time, not too long ago (OCTOBER 2017) when I couldn’t even fathom stringing two words together. I was like,[…]

You Can Ask Me Anything!

  Hey, you! Yeah, you! Reading this right now!   You can ASK ME ANYTHING!!!   This post is an invitation. My small but mighty readership, if you want to ask me anything, please feel free! My comments are always open, my email address is on my About Me page. And I love to hear from you! If[…]

And THAT’s Why I Have Trust Issues

  Yeah, you could say I’m a little FRAGILE lately!!!!   ICYMI, my life has been going through a lot of changes???? Okay, I’ll level with you: I HATE being out of the loop on important things. Things that matter to me. By people that matter to me. People I should be able to trust!   And[…]

The Day My Blog Died

Trigger warning: suicide, depression.   Notice anything NEW???   Yeah that’s right — my BLOG IS BACK!   “Meghan, I didn’t even notice it was gone!”   Well, that’s because you don’t follow me on Twitter! I cried for an entire DAY about it, and tweeted my feelings while emailing[…]

*Sigh* Another Autumn, Another “Basic Bitch” Debacle

  Autumn’s natural beauty is incomparable: the leaves on the trees turn to bright colors, the pumpkin harvests fill the fields with vibrant orange globes, and suddenly, the words “Basic Bitch” start cropping up everywhere.   Yes, it’s time for flannel shirts, circle scarves, and accusing each other of being[…]

Just Putting It Out There

  In my most cynical moments, I have believed that there is no such thing as pure altruism. Like I said. Cynical.   Every day express your love to 3 people, animals or objectsBe true to your heartKeep doing it for 3 months & your life will totally change —[…]

Modern Miss Manners

  I’m old enough to remember being drilled by my elders on the concept of etiquette. I assure you, even as a punk rock baby, I realized most of it was total bullshit. I mean, WHO CARES if you wanna use a tea spoon to eat your soup with? But[…]
