Megan -November

What I’ve Learned –

When I hit a wall, I sleep on it.  Literally. Some of my best thoughts and ideas come to me in my sleep.  I lay down and a few hours later, presto.  Just like that.

On my decision making process: Is there a solution to the problem?  If the answer is “yes,” then why worry?  If the answer is “no,” then why worry?  It’s a little Bobby McFerrin.  It’s a little Buddhist.

Italy has changed, but Rome is Rome. Robert DeNiro said that.  Somehow I don’t think he was talking about Italy.  I like to think he was talking about D.C. and how the world around it has changed, but the men and women of our government are still operating with the same mindset they used in the 1800s.

Changing careers provides relief. Doing what I am passionate about makes me feel more authentic about my work.  It’s that simple.

Changing careers provides stress. Doing what I am passionate about creates a different set of problems I didn’t anticipate.  The economy sucks.  Employers are either freezing their hiring, laying-off people, outsourcing work, or hiring recent graduates who will work longer hours at a lower rate.  No one cares about quality or what seasoned workers bring to the culture of the workplace.  Intangibles matter.

I’ll always be indebted to my mother.  Period.

I don’t understand Oprah.

In college I earned a 0.86 GPA one semester.  That was a complicated semester.  I gave up.  I couldn’t figure out my future.  A suspension followed the Christmas holiday.  Academic awards followed the suspension.  I figured out my future.  It was a process everyone goes through.  It’s just a matter of when.

I remember watching MTV go on air for the first time.  I was a kid.  I watched “Video Killed the Radio Star” with my older sister and grandmother.

I need isolation and background noise at a low volume to get my work done: Pandora, NPR or something on the television.

Salmon is the perfect food.  Versatile, good for you, always tasty.  It’s the Bubba Gump Shrimp of my diet.

Writing on my blog keeps me happy.

I wish people would simply be kind to one another.

    inspirational. truly.

    For all that his profile says, this man is truly more. Timid and conservative with giving himself praise, he has headed this project and brought it to life. Congrats to all the models for their contribution, I could not think of a better charity to support!
    You are all sexy, smart and inspirational in my “book”.

  3. Is this what swooning feels like?
    /sigh/

  4. …*wistful sigh*

    • “Wistful.” One of my favorite words right up there with “apex,” “zenith,” “nefarious,” “pinnacle,” and “vicissitude.” 😉

    Thank you for brightening up my birthday month.

    Sigh, now I feel old.

    • Yay for November! It’s my birthday month as well. Born on Thanksgiving Day. It’s like a birthday week. Wednesday if a half-day. Off Thursday and Friday. I use vacation time for Monday and Tuesday and half of Wednesday. Boom. One week birthday party (and a Thanksgiving) for just 2.5 days of comp time. Love November.

        Get outta town! My birthday is on Thanksgiving too! At least this year it is…
        And, oh, nice photo. :)

    Beautiful photo! Beautiful words!

  8. Ok, obviously the population bases their calendar consumption on what their birthday month looks like. Megan is 100% responsible for at least 8.3333333% of sales, and I’m thinking more.

  9. So, I can’t really think of anything to say other than “you’re gorgeous” because you respond to these and gorgeous dudes make me nervous.

  10. Oh my gosh. Men like you really DO exist!

  11. Genuinely good bio. Keep up the great work.

    • Thank you, Bill. They do bios like this in Esquire magazine. That’s where I got the idea.

  12. Beautiful photo. Great bio format. You seem to read and respond. Not only does the calendar look great, but it also supports a very worthy cause. I hope it is not too late to purchase one.

    • Thank you, Joy. I appreciate your support. It is not too late to buy a calendar. We even created a “mini” version just last month. You can view and purchase either using the order button on the top right of this site. Thanks again. Megan

      • A mini one too. I need to purchase both of them now. I am going to forward your site to all my friends on all social networks!
