job update.

Okay everybody (and by everybody I mean all 4 of you)... it's time to rally your best prayers/vibes/karma/thoughts and send them in my direction! I have 2 job interviews and hopefully a 3rd one coming soon.

Tuesday, November 16th @ 2:00 - I have an interview with the FOX affiliate in Lexington for an Account Executive position!

Thursday, November 18th @ 1:30 - I have an interview with The Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children & Youth for a Development Coordinator position.

The third position is at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society also for a Development Manager position. I'm hoping after I send my "salary requirements" that they requested that I will be setting up an interview for that as well!

I'm extremely extremely excited that at least 1 of these leads to a great opportunity for me. I couldn't be more ready and excited to get up at 7:00 in the morning to go do something with my day (and that must mean I sincerely need a job 'cause I am NOT a morning gal). I'm really hopeful about all 3 of them because all 3 of these are positions that I would be thrilled to have. They're REAL jobs doing REAL things. Imagine that! I had this inkling that a college degree was supposed to lead to that but lately I've been a tad skeptical ;)

So...send your best to me please!

meghan's favorite things

I noticed today that Whoopi was going to have "Whoopi's favorite things" on The View at some point. This is not only irritating to me because I don't like her opinions on basically anything that has ever stumbled out of her mouth (and because she's never going to be Oprah)...but also because I'm sure no one on earth wants to hear her talk about how much she loves muumuus, man clothes, hello kitty socks, Obama, the color black, not being funny, not washing her hair, and bitchin'. NOT OKAY. In the spirit of this recent development...let me welcome you aboard Meghan's Favorite Things List. Because I honestly believe that more people will be entertained by my list then that crazy lady on ABC. Here goes nothin'...

(in no particular order)

1) Good reality tv about crazy people (Intervention, Hoarders, The Buried Life, Teen Mom)
2) Graeters Ice Cream (I may be biased since my Dad works for Graeters...but there really is no question that it's the best icecream ever made)
3) Guys dressing like girls. It's almost always funny...unless the guy is serious.
4) Boots. All kinds...all the time.
5) Stumbleupon.com
6) This color...
7) Lulus.com
8) B. Makowsky handbags
9) Inside jokes. You know you love it.
10) Christmas. It's the only good thing that happens in the winter. Especially when you live in Ohio or Kentucky.
11) Tailgating for college football games.
12) Parents gettin' their drink on. Hilarious.
13) Nike shorts. The most comfortable things ever made.
14) Having all of your laundry done. It only lasts for a few hours but it's quite the rush.
15) V-neck tshirts. (especially from American Apparel)
16) Flying. (the airplane kind)
17) Clean sheets.
18) Keeneland.
19) Charleston, SC. (yes, the whole town)
20) NYC at Christmas.
21) Constant Comment Tea.
22) Sarcasm.
23) People-watching.
24) Finding the perfect profile picture on Facebook. Don't lie to yourself...you love when it happens.
25) Music that literally gives me chills.
26) Cheese. Uh huh.
27) Having 3 minutes left in a workout/the feeling I get right after I finish a workout.
28) A really good hug.
29) US Weekly. It's a guilty pleasure and I embrace it.
30) Spa Pedicures.

That's it for now. I wanted to get to 50 but it's a work in progress.  Good enough...

back to it.

As promised, I wanted to write a little note to each of my favorite people. So here it goes.

I don't even know where to begin. You "get me" better than anyone ever has. Anytime something crazy has happened over the past few years (and there has been a lot of drama) you have COMPLETELY understood and supported me through it. I love the way you think and how realistic you are. It is so refreshing to get your point of view and advice on things. You are definitely wiser than your years, Miss Lewison ;) You have this infectious personality that envelopes everyone around you and I'm pretty sure anyone that has ever met you fell in love within minutes. Your sense of humor is one of my favorite things about you and probably explains why we became friends in the first place. I love your sarcasm, your light-heartedness, and your ability to laugh at times when it would be easier to get mad or frustrated. You are so fearless and I admire that about you more than you know. You've never been afraid to go after your dreams, meet new people, or try new things...and I have no doubt that you will go far because of that. Our friendship is something that I am thankful for every single day and whether we're living down the hall from each other or living clear across the country I know I can always count on you to make me smile, keep me sane, and inspire me. I love you, my little Wolverine. And I miss you terribly.

Oh Ren, just typing your name made me laugh out loud. Living with you is my favorite thing in the world. You make me laugh all the time. You always have hilarious stories. You're great to talk to when we're having issues with friends, boyfriends, parents, co-workers or anyone else because you're a great listener, you always empathize, and you know how to make me feel better and lift my spirits. Annnd you like weird television like I do, which doesn't hurt ;) You have this confidence and self-assurance in you that I absolutely love and I hope I have for myself someday. You are so incredibly intelligent and "studious" and I admire your commitment to school and how hard you work to reach your goals. I have no doubt you are going to kick ass in law school...just don't decide to run off to some school in Spain please! You are such a social Sally. haha. I love that you never forget someone's name and can talk to anyone you encounter. I don't think you've ever met a stranger. You are the most fun-loving person I've ever met. We always have such a great time together...whether we're shopping at Hobby Lobby, going out on the town, or watching movies at home...you are great to be around. I'm so glad you and Samantha met in that damn freshman Math class, 'cause I can't imagine my life without you. I'm crossing my fingers our Nashville plan works out one of these years :) I love you.

Okay, the appreciation/love train will certainly get back on course soon and more letters to my loves will appear. However, I can't be mushy, sappy, sentimental Meghan every day. Get real. I'd start to become unrecognizable. So, while watching incessant election coverage for the last 3 hours I have also been obsessing (shock) over my dream home. Maybe all this "Republicans will help you get a job" talk has got me thinking that in fact one day I will actually have a career and...knock on wood...my own money! What a novelty. So... I'm going to share some pictures of what my dream bedroom (and house) would look like if I had an unlimited budget and unlimited time to decorate and create.

I mean...hel-lo. Could you just die? Now I just have to buy my own place before I get married so I can be obsessively and wonderfully indulged in the most feminine, ruffled, sparkled, cozy, chic kind of decor imaginable. Oh, a girly girl's dream! I swear to you...I'm utterly convinced that the coolest occupations are still A) personal trainer and B) interior decorator. I really should have thought about this before college, right? However, I am a card-carrying member of the unlimited time club. Yeah, that's what I'm calling it now. Get over it. So maybe I should start crusin' the yard sales and second-hand stores for some gems and spruce 'em up for a couple pennies. Though...if I really fell in love with something I could probably never sell it! Ohhh so many ideas and no clue what to do. Isn't being a 20-something fun????
