A Good Start.

Being an exchange student has opened my eyes to the possibilities this world has to offer. It's shown me what a beautiful place we live in. Sunsets with bleeding colors, towering mountains filled with danger and wild life and freedom. In the Earth you can find a miraculous rainbow of colors... purple flowers, green and terracotta red clay, pink and blue salt minerals in oceans and the different dirts with rich brown.

It's made me realize that I'm destined to explore and to adventure. I want to climb mountains that mock skyscrapers. I want to learn an array of different languages, adapt to the ways of different cultures, and always carry with me an undying respect for nature and those who take care of her.

I have a long list of feats and ambitions I want to accomplish, great adventures that will take me all over the world in any way that I can get there. I want to join the Peace Corps for agricultural work in Africa. I want to make the car trip from Washington State to Argentina. I want to go cliff diving in Crete. There are plenty of people who love to snub me when I speak openly about my future. But the fact is, I laugh with them. If they think I'm a person who boasts about one day accomplishing these ridiculous feats, they don't know me very well. I've grown to be confident being an individual who does things her own way, in her own time. I'm patient, I'm strong, I'm balanced. I'm ready for the great adventure of my life, and I'm pretty sure I'm off to a good start.


  1. I dare say you're off to an amazing start, Megan. And I have no doubt you will accomplish all you dream of--and much much more.

    I love your descriptions of your environment. It all sounds so picturesque and interesting.

    Keep writing and photographing!

  2. Thanks Mary !!! Your picture is gorgeous. Miss you and Emma. You keep photographing too. I have your flickr page bookmarked ! xo

  3. This is incredible! I love your writing style. It's so raw and beautiful.

  4. Hahah thanks, you're very sweet : ) If you write, you should send me some of your things--most of emma's other friends do. Email me ! :)

  5. What's even cooler is knowing that you'll do all those things and you'll find plenty of things you've never heard of to do -so many adventures ahead of you! It's exciting!

  6. Hey, Meg;

    I am so glad that I found your blog! I love reading how you are doing. Sounds as though pretty good. Soak up as much as you possibly can. xoxox
