Photo day (Idea #1)
I’ve been watching / listening to a lot of MGMT lately. The warm weather puts me in a trippy music mood, and MGMT are right at the top of my listening priority. I am so excited for their new album, it’s crazy. Anyhow, watching their old videos, I’ve had the idea to get some crazy body paints and just take a butt load of pictures. I don’t care if you think it’s...
thedailywhat: New Music Video! MGMT - “Flash Delirium” First single off the band’s second studio album, Congratulations — expected in stores April 13. Paging Charles Burns. [ontd.] I want this album SO BAD. Aaand this video is bitchin’.
Dislike / Like
I obsess over small / stupid things wayyy too easily. I always feel anxious. I try to make it look like I don’t, but I care what everyone thinks. I look too much into things. I wish I was more spontaneous. Sometimes, I feel like I’m being annoying, but I keep doing whatever I’m doing anyway. I know I’m mean to my sister sometimes (okay, a lot of the time), but I can’t...

Chuck, pull up your pants! We serve ICE CREAM, not ASS CREAM.– A. Lester
So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and...– The Perks of Being a Wallflower (My favorite book)
Wes Anderson loooove.
I guess I fit the typical “white person” mold, because Wes Anderson movies may be my favorite things on the planet. I watched The Fantastic Mr. Fox for the second time yesterday and it just keeps getting better. Kristofferson is still my favorite. I want a little fox buddy like him. And Ash, too. My favorite Wes Anderson movies in order and why: The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou...
No matter how corny it is, I still wish someone as...
Creativity is hard to conjure up. It’s especially difficult when you’re trying to do well around thirteen projects at once. I guess I have to get used to it, considering this is the field I’m going to be getting into once I graduate, but that still doesn’t excuse the fact that it’s freaking hard. In my portfolio prep class, at the beginning of the semester, I was...
I don’t understand why everything in my life is so stressful. I know I’m not the only person who feels this way, but I just feel like I have to talk about it. I’m trying to fix it, but it’s just not working, and stuff just keeps piling up and adding on more problems - it’s a never ending cycle. Let’s break this down, shall we? 1) There is less than 3 weeks...
In my painting techniques class, we were told to write a poem about whatever we wanted, so we can illustrate it. This is the masterpiece I came up with. Ahem. “Facial fur, facial fur Your ‘stache is causing quite a stir You make me laugh You make me cry And when you leave You make me sigh On your face, you curl so fine I love it so much, I wish you were mine.” Perfection.
And now we rise and we are everywhere.– Nick Drake, “From the Morning”
I am officially twenty years old! Well, it’s the date of my birth, anyway. I wasn’t born until 3PM or something like that. Close enough. Today, I am an adult. I don’t feel any different, but I feel like I’ll be looked at differently. Farewell teen status. You held many memories. You will be missed (but not that much).
I don’t need a calculator to tell me that you’re radical!

I love these kids.
Dude, you hang out with some goodass looking people.– A. Lester

Two (or three? I can’t keep up.) days ago, I caught a stomach virus. My stomach pains would wake me up in the middle of the night, and on top of that, I was sneezing like a maniac, I couldn’t breathe, and my throat was killing me. Yesterday, the stomach pains and sore throat disappeared, but they turned into headaches, and the sneezing and my runny nose remained. Now, the headaches...
Portfolio Review Pt. 2
I just got back. The morning started with me feelin’ not so hot and not ready to go spend my whole day sitting around, showing my not-finished portfolio to uppity people, who just give me harsh criticisms, but the day wasn’t like that at all. May I just say, I have a fabulous time. The people were friendly and inviting, and were (mostly) rather young, so I could talk to them as a...
I just realized when I was out galavanting tonight, that I have to go to my portfolio review tomorrow completely sick. Practice job interview, and I can’t even think straight. Bahhhhh. And to top it off, my teacher (STEVE) didn’t tell us that we have to register for the review. So, me and about seven other people have to go in there, hoping for a spot. Because if we don’t get...
It is 2:30 in the morning and I just took some pepto. I think I have a stomach virus. I haven’t felt this gross in years - I have a super immune system and don’t get sick very often. Nor am I awake this late this often. I went to bed just three and a half hours ago, and was irked out of my sleep by stomach pains and thinking about how much work I have to get printed for my portfolio...

1) My name is Megan (obviously), and I have tattoos on my feet. 2) I’m going to school to be a graphic designer. 3) I am an ice cream scooper at Ben & Jerry’s and it’s the best job in the world. All I do is make milkshakes / smoothies, bake cookies / brownies, and make (yes MAKE) waffle cones. Biiiiitchin’. 4) I play clarinet in a band with my friends Bryan and...
