2019 Resolution: Get Out More!

I had a whim today. Well, really, it was because I saw this Time Out New York article on my Facebook timeline: talkin’ bout the 50 places you should visit in New York City. I’ll get the waiting out of the way: I’ve been to 33/50 of them. Not bad![…]

New Jersey Is Nothing To Be Afraid Of

  It never occurred to me before, but I was raised to be afraid.   Maybe you were, too?   From as far back as I can remember, up until the most recent conversation I’ve had with my parents, I’ve been cautioned to be safe. “Give me a ring when[…]

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[…]

A Weekend in the Country!

  So the *official* reason for going to Vestal, NY for the weekend was to visit my parents buuuuuuuut it didn’t hurt that their new puppy, Kenzie, was there too! Is this an unabashed photo dump? Yes, AND: it’s my excuse as to why “my homework was late” aka I[…]

If I Only Had 48 Hours To Live

  Yep, I’m a morbid goth kid 4 life. But I think about this a lot: how I want to spend the end of my life. Frankly, it’s a lot easier (for me) to idealize the end of my life, than to imagine or plan for the next five years, fifteen years, FIFTY years.[…]

I’m On A Boat

  Hi, my name is Meghan, and I am depressed. BUT, when life hands me lemons, I like to make lemonade! And when life sends me on work errands to Red Hook, I get to take a cruise.     Yep, a cruise. That’s the way the IKEA express ferry describes it. But in[…]

New York, I ❤️ You (And You ❤️ Me Back)

  Guys, let me tell you about the New Jersey Turnpike.   See, you never really know how much you love something until you lose it. This was how I realized I was stanning Sasha Velour in season 9: when it looked like she might be in danger of having[…]

How Was Your Christmas? I Got My Period!

  Yep, so, I was worried about how this Christmas was going to be. I was worried I would be lonely? I was not lonely. I was worried I would be sad? Yes, I was sad, but more importantly —   — I got my period!   It’s the most on-brand gift[…]

Currently… in September 2017

  FEELING:  I’m not “over” Burning Man, yet. That was probably the most intense three weeks of my life, and I was so busy and alive during that time! One minute, you’re a bad-ass amazing survivalist, vital and thriving, pushing yourself past your limits and defying nature to have an[…]

We NEED To Have A Potty Talk

  Hi, strangers. We need to have a talk about potty training. Not for kids… for adults. For YOU.     I would say, seven times out of ten, I walk into a Manhattan public restroom and find piss everywhere. More than just a few sprinkled. More than the errant drip. Much[…]

I Say Hey, What’s Going On?

  Well, I disappeared! I hate when really consistent bloggers just up & “disappear” on me, and I always take it personally (HA!). If you took my absence personally and demand to know where I’ve been when I’m not blogging, here’s what’s going on:   Last weekend, I hopped on[…]

You Got Me, Babe

Ok I said it like five months ago that May was gonna be the month that Tr*mp was impeached. And y’all, it is just taking way too long. America is getting scarier and worse by the day. What am I supposed to do? Sit around and wait for you to impeach him? Well,[…]

Currently… in March 2017

FEELING:  Excited and inspired. I’ve been working for the past …well, a little over a week… nonstop at the studio I was working at a few months ago. I love love love it. It’s so much fun helping out, and every day I get asked to do something that scares me: power[…]

“What Do You Have In This Bag – ROCKS?” Well, Um, YES.

Yes, I was the weird kid who’d stop to pick up a rock off the ground if it was shiny, smooth, OR formed a neat shape (this one looks like a strawberry!). It wasn’t uncommon for me to come home with pockets of rocks. And that’s exactly what the inside[…]

California Was So Nice, We (Accidentally) Stayed An Extra Day

You heard me. So you already knew I was going to be in California this weekend, but through some magical invisible force, we would up staying a day longer than we’d originally planned. Yes, yes, I promise I’ll tell you all about Palm Springs, and Joshua Tree, and Los Angeles[…]

the best GOOD NEWS of the year, roundup

Awwwww you guuuyyys it’s my last weekly Good News roundup of 2016! You know, in years past, I would have felt a twinge of nostalgia saying “Last X of 20XX,” but I really don’t feel anything. TIME IS A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT, like virginity and breakfast. And besides, I doubt anyone’s going[…]

2016 Year in Review

Buckle up, Buttercup! It’s the annual massive “best posts of the year” post! I’ve done it in 2012, 2013, 2014, and dang if it didn’t take me 1 2 3 4 tries but I did it in 2015, too. We’ve got 12 months to cover and a total of 165[…]
