Lately my mind has been pulling a...well, I guess I would call it a overhaul. My brain is working double time due to all the stuff going on and I think that I just need to unleash.
I have not really been as "on" this blog as I would like to be, in fact I think I normally write when I have something pressing to say. Right now, I have everything and absolutely nothing to I am writing.

This could end up being a bad idea.

Well, work is going realllllly well. Almost too well. I have gotten into the groove of things, but now it is almost monotonous. I don't know what I am really aiming for here. I got this job that pays the bills, but I think I am realizing that I am working because I have to. I know, "Welcome to the Real World Morghan. You and the majority of the population are working because you have to." I think that I am just hung up on it because my first thought is "why." I am not really the kind of person that wants to save money for a rainy day. I want to travel and see the world. I want to spend all my time with family and friends. I want to hitchhike all over the continental US. I want to help everyone that needs it. I want to create really awesome outfits and be able to wear them wherever I want. I want to write for the hell of it, and not because I have a project or a report or anything of that nature. I want to read books that move me, not articles on changing trend patterns. I want to be free to do everything I deeply desire. However, I am stuck in this thing called society and I have to follow it's stipulations to a certain degree. Which kinda sucks....
I just got to spend 5 days with my amazing boyfriend, and now I literally ache for him. I never thought that love actually hurt. I thought that was something that silly, unintelligent people say. Man, has that opinion come back to bite me in the butt. It really is hard to be in a long distance relationship, like crazy hard. I miss so many aspects of being in a relationship that sometimes I feel like the day to day stuff that is so important is the stuff that I'm not really experiencing.... It's just frustrating is all.

Ok, this was a very "me, me, me" post, which I kinda hate...but I think it was important to get all this stuff off my chest.
Until Next Time!

So, I made a promise that I would do one post every week...I think I might have bugged out on that one, but I thought I could at least try to make a post before I hit the two week mark.
I don't really have much to say. I have decided, after much reading of Bill Bryson and excessive research, that my absolute top-notch dream career would be a travel writer/journalist. I could combine all that I love into one job....genius really. Now, as to how to accomplish this I have no clue.
Confession: I am actually trying hard to get addicted to Pinterest.  Of all people, I should have grabbed onto the trend by now. I freaking love the idea...I just haven't gotten to the point where I spend a lot of time on there. *sigh*
Confession 2 ( I had no idea I had so many): Sometimes I really miss certain parts of Tx, usually those parts are about 6 ft tall-ish and rhyme with "Yen." However, today my mopey little pity party extended to another part of Paris. A part that looks something like this.

Are you salivating? I am...Yes, I miss Swirlz Bakery. A lot! What I would not give for a Pink Velvet cupcake and a few cake balls right about now...
Ok, now that I am hungry, I shall sign off for the evening. Thank you for listening to my ramblings.
Till Next Time.

Ok, so here is something that I have decided this know, the three weeks that have already passed by.

This year, for me, shall be the year of no consumerism.
Why is this?
Well, for starters, watch this video.
Ok, so this was definitely an inspiration for my quest for.....well, I don't really know if it would even be considered a quest...perhaps change? challenge? Just Because?
I have decided that this year I will not buy conventional clothes, shoes, accessories, beauty products or hair products.
Whoa Morghan, Whoa! How are you going to go a whole year without buying soap, shampoo, or shoes...ewwww!
Before you get too presumptuous, note that I did say no CONVENTIONAL shopping. I am allowing myself to shop at thrift/secondhand stores, and I will be making my own soaps, shampoos, deodorants, etc. which means that I will allow myself to buy organic ingredients for all of the above.
To be perfectly honest with you guys, I don't know exactly why I am doing this. I want to challenge myself to live "greener" and simpler. I want to do things that will better someone other than just myself. Over the last few months I have noticed the rampant spirit of consumerism in my life and, quite frankly, it disgusted me. I am in a position in life where I really need to save money. The list kinda goes on and on.
Also, as I mentioned before, I am in a bit of a creative rut...which I am working on getting out of, but this is one way that I can contribute to my Get Creative Project.
All in all, I just want to "renew my intentions" for all of you Yogis/ Earth Freaks out there. (Love you all, by the way and wish that I were more devoted like you guys).
So, if the next year you see me wearing the same outfit 5 times in a row, or you notice that my hair is looking a little funky, don't be alarmed. I am just going through a clothing cleanse, and trying to wash my hair with baking soda and apple cider vinegar.
Ai yi yi.

Change in the Air...

It has come to my attention that in my last blog I grossly neglected to let you in on a delightful facet of my life.
 *drumroll please*
I have a boyfriend.
If you watch my YouTube channel (which I will try to link somewhere  on this page)  you will know this fact, but for those of you who don't, I submit Exhibit A

Yes, it's true...I wouldn't make someone like him up :D

Well, I have been reading a book by Bill Bryson entitled  "A Walk in the Woods" which is all about his ambitious trek across the Appalachian Trail. Ok, aside from the fact that Bill is a positively witty author, I mentioned in a previous video that I love travel journal type novels. This book makes me want to pack up some camping gear and set out on the trail...even though the whole first chapter is devoted to the author's distress about the many ways to be attacked by bears.
Now, those of you who know me will realize that this is probably utterly ridiculous. I'm not what most would call an "outdoorsy" girl *snickers* but I do have an adventuresome streak in me that prompts me to do ridiculous things.
If any of you have a wanderlust streak in you, and if you have an appreciation for wit and intelligence, I would pick up this book. Tell me what you think!
Until Next Time!

New Year, New Post!

Well, I figured it was about time for me to post again, I did a vlog the other day about my New Year's resolutions-type things, and one of these were that I wanted to blog more. The main reason for this is that I would really like to hone my writing skills....Somehow in my mind I have always imagined that I would be able to write America's best novel instantly, sans practice of any sort.
I'm blabbering.
Anyways, I have been trying this week to get my finances in order. I start a new job next week so hopefully the stretching and scrimping will decrease a little bit....I have a love/hate relationship with money...and cars. Perhaps they are related somehow ;)

Side note: I love Pennsylvania!! I forgot how much I loved the hilly roads, and all of the cute coffee houses, the hipster trend that has swept the nation, the cars with butt warmers ;p All of these things are quaint perks to living in a Northeast metro area that I greatly missed. Negative aspects: It's freaking cold!!!! Seriously, I was in NJ the other day at a strip mall. For some strange and unknown reason I felt it was necessary to wear a short dress and tights that day. It was 12 degrees. All. day. long. *Smacks Head* Oi, Pennsylvania and your crazy weather....
I guess there are good and bad sides to everything.

That is pretty much all I have today, except for the idea that I am thinking of trying to make semi-daily OTD videos (that's Outfit of the Day for all you non-blogger/youtube junkies out there). I guess I consider it a sort of portfolio of my creative works. Is that too....weird? I don't know, it's an idea in the making.

Much Needed

Well, I have been meaning to update, but as usual I procrastinate on most things that need to be done.

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately. (Insert Lafoo and Gaston dialogue here) While the thoughts have mostly been of an exciting nature, in every lump of excitement there is a snippet of dread. I think most of the dread stems from Fear. Fear of the unknown, Fear of making the wrong decision, Fear of hurting people's feelings, the list could go on.

 I hate that. I hate that so many of my decisions have a niggling feeling of fear behind them. I really am not a fearful person. In fact most people would probably not describe me as such, but I know the truth.  For years I was guided by fear and worry. It ruled me and it owned me. Now, I broke a lot of that off a long time ago, but unfortunately it still comes back to bite me in the butt every now and then. The sad thing is, I have become so accustomed to not dealing with fear and worry that whenever it plagues me, I usually get ridiculous headaches...which sounds weird but is completely legitimate.

Anyways, the thing I have been thinking about lately is my move. Yes, I said move. I know I have talked about it before but I am actually making it reality this time. I love Texas, I really do. It will be hard to leave all my new friends, but I realize now what a good thing I had. It was staring me in the face for so long that I started to take it for granted. I am moving back to Pennsylvania to fulfill my destiny. It feels kinda good to say it. Almost as if this little blog is some sort of forum for public declaration. Hardly, but that is what it feels like.

Isn't it weird where Life takes us? About 2 years ago I had a whole future planned out for myself, and now I realize it's going to be different than I planned. That's happened to me before, and I'm sure it will happen again. I'm not to keen on major directional shifts...much in the same way that most people aren't keen on the foundations of their houses being jolted about by an earthquake. However, these things happen. You take the good and the bad together and you can choose to focus on the good.

My mom used to say "You've got the same pants to get glad in as you got mad in." I realize now how true this really is. Thanks Mom :)

I don't really know what the point of this post was. Probably just to get stuff off my chest. That is what most of this blog has been now that I think about it. But it feels nice knowing that my feelings are out there.

Well, I am going to return to my glass of Shiraz and trying to get rid of this dreadful tension headache. Hopefully your Tuesday is going a little better.
Until Next Time.
