Part of acting like an adult is eating like an adult so I have been trying to put on my big girl apron and do work in the kitchen. I am never going to be Martha Stewart but I also recognize that you can't eat nachos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (at least not without a significant degree of judgement from friends and family.) I've been making a real conscious effort lately to cook a couple of "Grown up" meals instead.

I just wanted to take a minute to stop and be grateful for everything I have. It is so easy to look at what other people are achieving and get caught up in the comparison game. Especially as a product of the "Facebook Generation," I view everything in terms of how others will perceive it. I get sucked into a vortex of Instagram filters and retweets. Don't get me wrong, social media is fantastic. It's just not always real. You can perform whatever identity you want through various platforms and profiles. You can show the world exactly who you want to be. However, that can sometimes distract from what is in the now. Where you are now. What you have now. Who you are now.

I've heard a lot of horror stories about college dining hall food. From gaining the freshman 15 to not having any variety of options, it seems that the general consensus states that college dining sucks. Luckily, I go to the best college ever and have the absolute best food. It's Awesome. I'm spoiled. However, that also means I have no idea how to feed myself in the real world. I have a couple of easy and (moderately) healthy go-tos that are satisfying and pretty easy to make (and clean up.)

I can always count on my mother for random acts of inspiration. These most often come in the form of out-of-the-blue text messages featuring strong female role models. So, I am passing on this little nugget of wisdom and putting good vibes out into the universe. (Hit me up, Karma!) Take this friendly reminder to never let fear or uncertainty stop you from going out and making things happen. And have a wonderful weekend!

Life gets kind of hard sometimes. I'm not trying to be cynical or angsty or anything, it's just the truth. Schedules get crammed with appointments and obligations often take priority over adventures. That is just the way the world works. It is part of being a responsible and fully functioning adult (which I have been trying to do lately.) However, the wisest people I've met understand the importance of fun. Fun is a healthy and totally necessary part of life. Taking time for yourself to relax is just as important as paying your credit card bills and buying groceries. It might be more important. Feeding the soul as well as the body, and all that...

Anyone who knows me knows that I love telling secrets and playing games. In fact, one of the most feared Meghanisms among my friend group is "Let's play a fun game!" Recently, I have been bullying my friends into playing a new game with me. It's called "If My Life were a Pinterest Page..."
