Short Bio, get to know the adventurer.

Hi. My name is Megan.

I'm sixteen, my birthday is in December. I like cats, and road maps that can be turned into fashion bandanas...I work at an independent bookstore called The Bookman. I'm a gardener and I love the woods. I love my best friends. I have two. The first is Alex, who's just a month younger than me, and Mary who's just about to turn 52. Other close friends are Evan, Emma, Sarah, and Zoe. Leaving good friends is tough but when you're heart's in the right place, they'll always be with you.

I decided to be an exchange student because I need to breathe a different kind of air. I want to learn French for future peace corps opportunities in Africa, experience a new culture, and devot myself to a new way of life.

It may not mean much to someone who hasn't studied tarot, but for this trip my cards have mapped out four stages: The first is Ruin (now). The second is the Prince of Disks. The third is The Devil. And the fourth is the Queen of Wands. Ruin washes away, burning every safe haven to the ground and demanding the creation of new beginnings. Well, there you go. I won't go into detail. It means everything to me, though.

My favorite bands are Coldplay, The Killers, Bon Iver and Mumford & Sons. I love music. No matter what language you speak, no matter how twisted your walk of life, one song can illuminate a generation, or free a people. No other force has such a particular power.

What else? I love to read, write, cook, hike, bike....anything outside. I think I can easily carry these things over with me to France, so I really look forward to that.
I LEAVE IN 9 DAYS!!!!!!!!!
