A few weeks ago I traveled up to the ADKs to visit family. It was a much needed and overdue visit.

I feel like I’m FINALLY settling into my LIFE. That’s weird to write, but I’m not really sure how else to explain it. I’ve always been working towards some sort of goal: graduate with my BFA, graduate with my MFA, find a full-time job I really want to commit to… so many goals. I’m turning 30 next month (O M G !) and I can proudly say I’ve reached all of my goals up to this point in my life. AWESOME!

Time for new goals.

Now that I finally feel like I’ve got my life in order, now I can enjoy it! I have mixed feelings about turning 30 next month. On one hand, like I said, I’ve accomplished a lot up to this point, but then again I haven’t accomplished what 16yr old Megan thought I would have accomplished by now. I’m not married (not even close!), I don’t have any kids, I don’t own my own house… see where I’m going with this? A couple of weeks ago I started a new full-time job. MY full-time job. I love the organization I’m working with and I love what I’m doing there. FINALLY. This is what I needed.

Settling into MY LIFE now I’m looking forward to picking back up photography, letterpress, maybe take a ceramics class or two… I’m excited to create again! I’ve never craved having a camera in my hand like I do right now. I miss taking pictures. All of the above photos are from my Instagram account – photos I took while home (yes, it snowed!!) – photos taken with my iPhone. I NEED to use my film cameras again. I’m especially excited to shoot with my Hasselblad – it’s been way too long.

I have weekends off now! It’s been YEARS since I’ve had a “normal” schedule and I will be taking full advantage of it. PHOTOGRAPHY is coming back to this blog! I’m SO EXCITED.

Off to order some 120 film

my 1st Tattly

I’m currently rockin’ the Boombox by Marc Johns. Aw, my first Tattly!

I bought a bunch of these “Designy Temporary Tattoos” over the summer and for the life of me I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to put one on! I can tell you now though that I am HOOKED. Though I have a few permanent tattoos, these Tattlys are sure fun to play with.

Next week I might wear Hustle, Scribble, or You’re Late (Blue). Which one is your fave?
