Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not...– 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. I hear this allllll the time, but never really stopped to pay attention to the words and apply it to myself. Definitely will keep this in mind…:)
The No-Fail Way to Make Me Roll My Eyes
Telling me what to do when I already planned to do it. Or rushing me.

I hate Mondays
I’ve cried so hard today that my insides hurt. I cried so hard my nose started bleeding a minute ago. How does that even happen? I can count one time in the past 5 years I’ve cried this hard. I don’t cry. I don’t do tears. Have you ever had a day where you woke up mentally and physically exhausted… and the world just tacked on every little thing it could, every...

Have you ever...
…befriended someone who you’d heard a lot of bad things about, and thought “They seem like a great person, I wonder why people talk so bad about this person?” Then they and do the bullshit they’re known for to YOU and you’re like “Ooooooh, I see.”
I went to a wedding...
Today I attended my first traditional Nigerian wedding celebration. I believe it was called an “Engagement Ceremony”. It was for my friends Dami & Nyi, who my company, Professional Socialites, is coordinating an American wedding for this Saturday. I was lost to say the least. We showed up at 4 o’clock on the dot, as per the invitation. We didn’t know that it was...
Have you ever dated someone who kept their promises? Like was really true to their word? That man can tell me “I promise” and I know whatever he promises will be done. That is amazing to me. He is too though. This post is ultra-cakey, don’t judge me.
Where's Skee-Lo when you need him?
I have to put things on the top shelves of cabinets in my home, because they need to be stored somewhere for fucks sake. I never really realize how short I am until I need to retrieve those things from said storage spaces. 5’2”, and way out of reach of the Kool-Aid pitcher. “I wish I was a little bit taller…” Nah, who am I kidding. Short is sexy (albeit...
Letter - Impatience
I started off on this 30 days 30 letters thing with the best of intentions. As I’m going down the list, I don’t have a letter to write for each of these scenarios, and some of the letters are repeats. So, here I am, on Day 13 (but haven’t written letter 12) and I’m giving up. Here’s a mini-letter to the rest of the days: Day 12 — The person you hate most/caused you...
I need to start typing my posts more slowly
I just reblogged something about my college homies/great music dudes, The NiceGuys, and meant to say the video for “Not At All” was dope, not the particular song I reposted. Just go listen to their music and what not. That is all.
The video is super dope as well *Go Coogs :) ...
Day 11 — A Deceased person I wish I could talk to
Hey Granny Bernice, I think if this letter gets too in depth, I’ll get sad. You were quite possibly my favorite person on the face of this earth, and you were gone before I even realized it. The day I found out you died, I knew before they even told me what had happened. I felt like the wind had been knocked out of me, and pretty much passed out. Adrienne still tells me I was being a little...
Day 10 — Someone I don’t talk to as much as I'd...
Dear Danielle, You’ve been more than a friend to me, since I was 14 years old. You’re more like a sister. Though we grew apart over the years, I know that you will always be there for me, and I hope you know I’d give my last for you too. Time, distance, etc will never change that. I love you Dani-B! Megan PS…. oooh lawd this picture is OLD!! lol…
Jordyn: Are you feeling bad mama?
Me: I'm ok baby.
Jordyn: When you just say "I'm ok" you never are.
Old folks talk
Crystal: Why do old people always wanna talk about death
Crystal: Promise me we'll just talk about pool boys and hoverounds
Me: Lol, nigga we scanning the obituaries every Tuesday to see who we know that has finally kicked the bucket.
Crystal: I hate u sooo much
gintel: I wanna get dressed up, made up and go somewhere. It’s been a while. After I finish this stuff though…
Mama, you always say ‘sorry’ for something when there’s...– Jordyn (Why is my 6 year old so damned insightful and prolific without even trying?)
Having your flaws spelled out for you is a punch in the face. Seeing how they...– Anonymous
am I the only one who gets a fever, and then hates breathing because the air coming out of my nose is all hot on my top lip? That shit is a supreme #failwhale. Let me take my feverish ass to bed.
Oh, Timmy... You're so silly →
If you’ve heard of Elizabeth Warren, and you actually care about the government doing right by people, you probably love her. She was the initial advocate for the Consumer Protection Agency that we are now getting under the new (weak ass) Wall Street reform bill. Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner (a sneaky ass creep if you ask me) is opposing her appointment to this position (which I...
I don’t always know how to be at a happy medium. I’m all or nothing sometimes, and it’s bothersome. I believe in the happy medium. After all, it is happy. I divulge too much, or I clam up and don’t speak my mind. I type a blog post, just to erase it and say nothing at all… Like I was about to do with this one.
Letter 9 — Someone I wish I could meet
Dear Me (that I one day hope to be), Can’t wait to meet you. Got a little more growing to do first, I know. Soon… Love, Yourself
Life is about making mistakes. Death is about wishing you made a whole lot more.– “The Bounty Hunter”

Letter 8 - My Fav Internet Friend
Hey Tumblr, Though our friendship is new, it’s off to an awesome start. You haven’t let me down yet. Keep being awesome. Love, Megan
Letter 7 - My Ex-Boyfriend
Dear Ex, What should I say to you that hasn’t already been said? Oh, I’ve got it. Thank you. I stayed in our poisonous situation for as long as I did to prove something to myself: that I could stay with someone when things got rough. Because normally, I’d chunk the deuce, end of story. And I did that. I won the battle of my mind through fighting with you. This is not sarcasm....

Letter 6 - A Stranger
Dear McDonald’s Drive-Thru window employee, There have been many of you over the years, and I’ve had a love/hate relationship with each and every one of you. Either you’ve given me excellent service, only to screw up my order, or you’ve been a total asshole and given me exactly what I wanted. On not so rare occasions, you’ve been a complete jerk AND got the order...
Talking about Hoverounds:
David: Hoverounds are crunk!
Megan: Aren't they though? If I'm ever immobile, heaven forbid, I am going to have THEE baddest HoverRound on the block. It may even float.
(If we ever get to the future "The Jetsons" promised us, it may actually hover as well.)
My Blissful Life: Letter 1- Best Friend →
Hey Bestie! So I’m happy that this project starts with you because you are my rock and don’t even know it. I still can’t believe how we became best friends but its still the greatest story I will ever tell my kids one day. Thank you for being you. I have become so much stronger because of…
Letter 5 - My Dreams
Howdy Dreams, I know I’m busy trying to live you right now, so I’ll keep this brief. Thanks for coming true with the creation of Professional Socialites. Working for myself, doing what I love, with my best friend… it’s freakin’ awesome. Let’s just keep that train moving, and take the company higher and higher until the dream of retirement comes into play. ...
I find it mighty odd that my former UH classmates go IN on reality tv dating show chicks on Twitter ALL the time in a negative manner for putting themselves out there like that… But when a chick that we went to school with is on a show, it’s all “you go girl”. No hate, but it’s funny really.
Time is the longest distance between two places.– Tennessee Williams (don’t I know it buddy)
Reach out and touch...
I hate my cell phone. Rather, I hate me with my cell phone. It is constantly melded to my right hand. I sleep with it next to me. On my bed, not even on the nightstand. Once I became a mother, I also became a light sleeper. Any message that comes through, at any point in my sleep, I’ll wake up for. I may check it and go right back to sleep, but I wake up. You know why I hate this? Because...
Letter 4 - My Sister
Hey Biggie, I’m sure I’ll have to send the link to this letter to you, since you limit your social media usage to Facebook. Ok… so… you’re the bomb. I won’t go into how smart and pretty you are. You’re my sister, that’s a given. :) You’re the ying to my yang, day to my night dude. I feel like me being the tattooed, rebellious younger sister...
my mom was like, “don’t stay up late again.” and I was like, this isn’t choice....– My Godsister Nicole (via crystaldenetta08)
