The Journey Continues...

So this blog was always meant to be a temporary endeavor. It was a bit of a trial run. An experiment to see if blogging was something I enjoyed. I definitely wasn't ready to commit to anything long term and I was completely unsure of what I wanted to write about. This past summer gave me an opportunity to explore my interests and to find my voice. So while I will no longer be posting anything on this site, I am choosing to leave it up as a time capsule of my last summer at home. It chronicles an important time of transition in my life and I'm proud of the revelations I've made here. That being said, I have started a new chapter, which requires a new creative space. MEDIA. ART. ADVENTURE. is a place for me to share little bits of inspiration and to explore my passion for art, media, and all things internet-related. Cheers to growing up and moving on! I can't wait for whatever comes next.

Saying Goodbye

It couldn't last forever.

Summer is over and it is time for me to go back to school to start my senior year of college. It is time to say goodbye to the reckless relaxing spontaneous adventure I've been having for the past three months and to return to the real world. If I'm being completely honest, I'm stoked.

Neat and Tidy (Artist Obsession)

I just need to do a quick post about how freaking cool these photographs by Todd McLellan are. They are part OCD, part I spy game, and part Etsy-worthy whimsy.

Mini Vacation: Victoria BC

This was not only a mini vacation but also sort of an accidental vacation. Its was spontaneous and adventurous and lots of fun! My mother was going up to Victoria, BC for a business conference and invited me to come along as her date since I had never been. I packed a bag, hopped on a boat, and had a wonderful couple of days exploring a new city.

Blueberry Ice

Cool Idea: using frozen blueberries as ice cubes in sparkling water. It makes drinking water and staying hydrated a little more fun and a little more special. Plus it turns this fantastic magenta pink color that happens to match my nails perfectly.

Pretty Things

I WANT IT ALL! Well, not really. But I want a lot of things. I am an ambitious girl and I definitely like keeping busy. This laid back summer schedule is starting to really mess with my need for routine. It's been a fun change but I'm getting pumped for school to start back up later this month.

Dinner For [Every]One: Indecisive Salads

So this summer I've been learning a lot about how to cook in single portions. When it's just you eating, it can be easy to skip the cooking and just have popcorn or ice cream for dinner. But that's not nearly as satisfying or grown up as I'd like to be. Finding that motivation to make something satisfying and moderately healthy has been a huge goal of mine this summer. However, making dinner for a crowd comes with its own set of challenges.

Favorite things: Dry Shampoo!

My handle on Twitter and Instagram is @HairflipMeghan. This tends to be a little bit of a tipoff that I have big hair. Not crazy out-of-control big. Not even curly afro big. Just voluminous. I also have a tendency to play with my hair in public. I guess it's a bit of a nervous habit. I started doing it in the forth grade and have kept it up consistently since then: running my fingers through it, twisting it around my fingers, moving it from one shoulder to the other, etc. etc.

Mini Vacation: Getting Dirty!

So I did this thing a couple weeks ago. It's called a Dirty Dash and it's crazy. Essentially it's a 5K on steroids where you climb walls, crawl under pipes, race down Slip 'n Slides, and do all sorts of other fun stuff. I've been trying not to sit on my ass in front of a computer all summer and this is was a great way to get down and dirty with a bunch of friends and family.
