Some "I"s

Inspired by my dear Bekah I am now posting a quick post of "I"s.

I am...
Excited about my client meeting in digital illustration tomorrow.
Thankful for my newfound Pintrest, even if the server (or something) is very bad.
Looking forward to Thanksgiving break!

I want...
to try this sock hair curly thing I saw on Pintrest. If it works I will WAY be stoked.

I pray...
for my family
for my Man who's seeking Him
for the rest of this semester

I think...
That having random items for making various holiday goodies is ABSOLUTELY FANTABULOUS!!!!!!

I need...
To shower and catch up on psych
To get started with Christ
mas idears
And to update my iPhone

I made...
Pumpkin spice muffins tonight

I read...
Barely ever these days.

I have...
a New Year's resolution in mind already to regain my senior high school expertise at sending things via real mail.

And also I am...
wearing pigtails for the first time ever since I was 2 in this pic. Crazy man!

Summer's almost done?

School is about to start back up! Tell you what people, I have been SOOOOOO blessed this Summer! I've been thinking of some things that have been happy for me that I'm thankful for this season. Let's see...

New Macbook Pro!!! Well...maybe...

This chick lost her first tooth! She got to go to Braums with the tooth fairy ;)

I get to be in an art show at school! With this thing.

We got to clown a lot.

VBS! Two of them to be exact. "Rock of ages...your word is always true..."

We got to go to Branson and hang with our CO homies and play at Silver Dollar City! That was def a blast. This pic is some handsome boys at Pizza Hut up there :)

My mom and dad both had birthdays AND an anniversary this Summer!

I fell a lot more in love with this handsome fella. I know, I do that every day, but... :)

This guy made it into the nursing program at school! Proud sister? Why yes I think so.

I got to witness two of my most beautiful friends get married to awesome guys! Happy happy joy joy!

Aren't they so pretty?

And as for now, I'm gonna go thank God for the Scholarship I got and the dress I need to go buy and Summit church camp that I'm gonna go as councilor. And I'm gonna pray for my sissy and her trip to EA. Miss that girl like the dickens!!!

Happy rest of the Summer everyone!

"Because Your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise You. So I will bless You as long as I live; in Your name I will lift up my hands."

Sitting in class at a huge Mac waiting for Mr. Sir to get here.

Yup, that's what's up. Digital Imaging class and then 2D Design later! My funnest classes, though they go really long. I've nothing really to has been great, homework has been fun, my professors are all crazy. Yesterday I was emotionally out-of-wack and really tired so God said, "Aw, Meg it's not the end of the world. Know why? It's free ice cream day at school!" YAY!!!! And then I was happy. God really knows when to pull out that ice cream huh? 

Um...oh, guess what happened last night? I was fooling around with my homework trying to make it all extra artsy looking and THAT apparently altered the space-time continuum and make all the clocks go suddenly to 11:00pm! So, that's what happened last night if you're wondering why it suddenly flicked from 9 to 11. Well, 3 minutes till class is supposed to start. I'd better post up and get ready to see Mr. Dr Seuss-tee-shirt-with-a-sports-coat-over-it-with-jeans-and-cons. That's what Mr. Sir likes to wear :)

Jumpin Jinglefeathers

Hello all :D

How's life? Figured I'd tell how mine was. In short, very happy :) In long, wellllllllllll ummmmmmm...

 I'm getting ready to graduate! :D Yepyepyep! It will be fun to see what all God has for me after high school. I love being pretty much done with it, it makes for a nice, laid-back schedule. I can skip a day of school to go nannying or to play with my Wingys and not feel awful like I need to catch up with school, cuz it's pretty much already done! :) Nice.

We got new tile in the dining room. Looks nice. I'm just happy it's done, cuz my "negative energy" as Caesar Milan calls it, goes through the roof during home rennovation stuff :P

We had our Jr/Sr Formal! It was sooooooo fun, I got to dress up! Look at my fb for pics :)

We tried out TKD last Tuesday....REALLY FUN!!!!!! :D Next time I'll be more over the first-time fear factor and will be able to enjoy it even more :)

We went playing with the Wingys today...airsofted. WAY awesome. I love my gun. And my sibs. And my Wingys. And my Jesus. Just sayin.

All the greenery is emerging! We're getting the spring clothes out (yes, tis a wreck) and I dare to think that it will not snow again! :D I look fat in shorts, but oh well--I can wear skirts. But I love the warmer (emphasis on the ER) weather and when flowers start peeking out again. I love flowers. This weather makes me stand outside and laugh out loud for no reason--that's why the neighbors think we're crazy I'm sure. But I wish the wasps would stay out of my spring, and soon it will be HORRIBLE hot. But oh well, I'm having what fun I can :) God is so creative with Earth isn't He? It just makes me excited and happy.

And does anyone else besides me think it's cool that your saliva glands produce 6 cups of spit per day? I mean, who besides a Mighty Creator could think up a thing THAT cool? Tell me if you ever think of anything, cuz I sure can't :)

Writing Stuff

Welp, now I am a writing teacher! Sorta. I'm teaching a co-op class off the book REACH FOR THE STARS Writing Workshop by the fabulous Susan Marlow (and featuring me :D). I've got 6 fun-lovin boys and a few with some real talent from what I can see from the two weeks I've been doing this. Real fun. I think we're gonna talk about showing-not-telling this week. Always a fun lesson.

AND going down to my younger grade tutoring. The elementary class with the boys was fun today. They've been doing well with their adjectives, so we decided to put them to work today writing a story about a secret agent that sneaks into Wal-Mart and removes a bomb and saves all the people (while listening to intense music of course!). The got SOOOO into it. Each boy had a different storyline...

By Jdude...
"Shisoh was in Wal Mart. He was looking for the missing bomb. He went to the first isle. Guards were setting the bomb. It was set, and the guards went away. Shisoh ran to it. He grabbed it and went out of the store. But he blew up." Oh sadness...the poor distressed author started to cry in the middle of class over the death of his heroic character. He sure has the writer's brain. He'll be amazing one day...I've said so ever since he was less than a year old, arranging magnetic letters on the fridge into fun, Sci-Fi names.

By Jess...
"Casban snuk into the store and went to the isle. It was the way to the bomb. He ran to the door and smashed the door open and found the bomb. He ran to it. The time was almost gone. 20 seconds. He ran out of the building and threw the bomb. It blew up. When the bomb blew up he ran to the store and all the people was safe." Good description huh? And this babe is a genius with his sentence structure already! :D

By Mayf (with some interpretation and help)...
"A dog was named Charlie. He ran into Wal-Mart. The bomb was in the corner of the store. He grabbed it in his mouth and set it down somewhere far. Then he went in to check if all the people were ok. The end." He loves the name Charlie :)

Sweeeeet huh? :D I'm proud of all my writing boys. Oh wait I have a girl too! In the junior-high division. She just did me a literary analytical essay on THE LAST BATTLE by C.S. Lewis. I purple-penned it over just a minute ago. She really put some good thought into it! Course it needs a little structure work, but the content is really good, I'm impressed!

But oh, a tragedy. My purple pen is running out of juice! I'm a fun pen kind of chick, and I had one of those big huge, stick-o'-dynamite looking ones that I used for EVERYTHING. Twas a purple-blue ink which made it good for editing. I like black better when I write for my own purposes, but this one was good and VERY used. Then Lukey the Penbreaker took it apart when I wasn't looking and I'm sure this put my pen into a state of trauma, for a couple days later it quit working. For three days I scribbled through sheets of paper, watching for a splash of blue. I shook, licked, blew...but to no avail. And I haven't found another big one since. I decided to move on with my life and find another pen somehow. I dug through the junk drawer and tried pen after pen, but those kind you buy in bulk rarely work to my satisfaction. Then a friend (not knowing my plight) sent me a cute purple pen. It wrote pretty...not fast enough for rapid brainstorming, but perfect for editing people's work. I dubbed it my editing only pen, and called it....The Purple Pen. Then my Gram gave me a pen for Christmas that looks like a candy-cane. I checked the color and consistency on my hand right off the bat and the ink was black! And it flowed wonderfully without globbing or quitting! Perfect! The Candy Cane is my Thinking Pen. I use it for school and to brainstorm and to take to class. It tends to fascinate people. I also have this New Year's Resolution to use up all my blank notecards by sending them to folks, and a found a couple of black pens that look boring, but they are of different consistencies and they each work well on a certain kind of paper. The Black Twins are my letter writers. How did I get off on this boring story? Yall don't even care, just me! :P Why do I write these things...oh well. All that to say, THE PURPLE PEN IS GOING OUT!!!!!!!!! I need a new one. One with a color besides blue or red and thick ink. I suppose The Purple Pen deserves to rest in peace...I've edited a whole Ethanator novel, many childrenses school papers, chapters in creative writing class...much has the mark of the signature Purple Pen.
The search begins.

Back to the blogoshere? Maybe?

Oh yes indeed - for now. At the pressure of many friends I am posting. But I'm not appeasing them entirely - I'm not posting on HSB hahahahaha! The Meggy impossible streak strikes again!! Just to catch you all up with what's up with me... I post again.

First matter of interest - We are moving back to Arkanesia. I don't truly want to, as I'd tragically miss my most amazing church family that has really been a family, my dear friend Cherry and everyone in our hs group, fencing my heart out, and numerous other things. But there are some things I'm excited about moving back for too, so we shall stop talking about this. It is an unpleasant subject.

If you want to keep up with me, get Facebook. Don't say you don't have time if you are a blogger. You just type a status, give your friends' statuses (stati... statusss...?) a quick once over ON THE SAME PAGE and get off! And keeping in touch with people is soooooooo easy! It's an amazing thing even my mom is on!

Church potluck today was awesome! I love AHBC and will miss it like the dickens. Though things are coming together that make me feel better about leaving. I was playing keyboard for the services and dearsweetdarling Nikki stepped up and said she'd take over for me! Dad was leading Saturday night service and awesometalentedmusicallyinclined Clayton stepped up and took it over without a glitch! I had been teaching funnyhelpfulstinker Andrew drums and he got good enough to play for service and I was loving it. But then the drums were going. But just as Dad was going to give them up, a box of brand new drums for the worship team showed up and surprised everyone! I tell you what - GOD IS AWESOME!!!!!! Like my mom said - "if God wants drums in the service, He'll send them". I believed it - just didn't figure He'd send them before I left :) Speaking of wonderfulawesomesweet church family, here they are now!
Jen, Pam, and me
Me and Megan
Me, Uncle Melly, and a bottle of tea (I'm ducking backwards way low heehee!)

The 4th was fun! Had cuzins over for burgers and hot dogs, went to service and played for the last time :(, and then we all went to Shelley's for cake and fireworks! The real fireworks were delayed too late for us, but we still saw a lot of good ones :)

So there. This is my post. I hope everybody is quite happy with it, was it worth all the hype lol? Maybe I'll post again soon... maybe :P
