Where have I been?

Hey Y’all!

For those of you wondering where the heck I’ve been, I started college at my local community college and have been very busy with that. I figured I’d check on my blog and start getting serious about it, so here goes!

I don’t have much to talk about so I’m going to start by updating you, and then talk about my last vacation, which was to Disneyworld. I’m going to Mexico for the second time here in a few weeks and I cannot be more excited!! I’m going to a different part of Mexico, and on my first cruise and I am a tiny bit nervous but mostly excited. School is going really well. It is a little stressful at times, but I mean, it is college so I would expect that.

Disneyworld

We went over my 17th birthday and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend my birthday that at the happiest place on earth with my family.

Starbucks wished me a happy birthday, which was a nice surprise (they saw my Disney “It’s my birthday” pin).

The Castle was awesome, so much bigger than the one at Disneyland!! It was so cool to see, especially at sunset. I can’t imagine what it must look like on the inside.

Day 12

My bucket list

To be honest, I’ve done so much on my bucket list already. I guess I would have to say travel to Europe is still huge for me, go on a cruise, and get a good picture with Imagine Dragons because in the three times I’ve met them, that hasn’t happened. It will someday, though. Anyway, that is all for these few days.

Catching up on the 31 Day Blog Challenge

Whoops!! I’ve been slacking on the thirty one day blog challenge, but no worries! I’m just going to start where I left off and go to day six all in one post.

Day 2

The meaning of your blog name?

The meaning of my blog name to be completely honest was just something that I say to my best friends at the end of notes and letters. I just sort of thought it was cute and also my readers are some of my best friends. My readers are what keep me blogging, so I want to send you all love!!

Day 3

Why do you blog?

Obviously this blog is fairly new, but I’ve read blogs since I was in fifth grade and knew what a blog was, so I guess now that I’m older it inspired me to start my own. I blog to document my life and for a creative outlet. I blog to encourage others as well as myself. I blog to build my skills as a writer and photographer.

Day 4

Your five favorite blogs.

My five favorite blogs are

Honestly WTF

Sincerely Kinsey

A Beautiful Mess

Made By Girl

And…… Can I say my own simply because I have too many others to name?

Day 5

Share the best advice you’ve ever gotten.

The best advice I’ve ever gotten has been from one of my best friends of all time, my grandma. I have this problem of feeling guilty for things that aren’t my fault. She always says “Just don’t pick up the baggage.” It serves as a great visual reminder and I use it honestly all the time.

Day 6

Something for your kids to know.

I want my (future) children to know that I love them, and that they are worth so much more than they could ever imagine. I want them to know that it is okay to not be okay, and that they can come to me with absolutely anything.

Well, that is all for today! Thanks for reading!!

31 Day Blog Challenge-Day 1

I’ve decided to start this challenge a little early, because I’m excited about it. I hope to start my 2016 off right with blogging everyday, motivating me to blog more. I’m very excited to see what 2016 has to offer me, since I am starting college!! Crazy! Anyway, Day one is “Introduction and recent photo”.IMG_1186.jpg

So let’s just dive right into to this new year! My name is Megan Culhane. I am currently 17 years old. As of right now, I am a student in Texas. Below are some recent photos of me. My favorite band is Imagine Dragons, and I have made hundreds of internet friends because of them. I’ve met about a dozen of those internet friends in real life and completely adore every single one of them. One of my best friends and I started off as internet friends. She helped me in the process of joining the LDS (Mormon) church! My other best friend and I are also friends because of the church, and I am eternally grateful for her.IMG_1179.jpg

I love reading, and writing. I have hopes of becoming an English major with a minor in sociology. I love music, alternative is my favorite genre. I also love playing my piano, ukulele and violin (although I don’t play violin as much these days). I am obsessed with Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and basically any big action/adventure series.

I love to travel and have been fortunate enough in my life to do so. I am leaving the country for the third time in a few months and could not be more excited! I guess that is a pretty basic sum of who I am. Feel free to ask questions below!

Take Me to Idaho

10270284_1193879967292836_5073893704945513119_n

*Rexburg, Idaho. Home to Brigham Young University Idaho. Also known as my dream school. Idaho is beautiful! I’ve never been to Rexburg specifically, but I have been to Idaho, and I love it there! It’s very outdoors centered, which I love. I cannot wait to go to school and be an english major with a minor in sociology. Not going to lie, I am a tad nervous that I won’t get in, but I know that is just my anxiety talking.

Look at all that gorgeous snow! I miss snow so so much, growing up in Alaska and Colorado for the most part. Texas has had zero snow thus far, and it is December! It seems so crazy to me, not having snow on Christmas.

Up in Idaho, snow covers EVERYTHING it seems like. My application is almost finished so that is really exciting. I just need my ACT scores to be sent, and then I am pretty much done. I hope to get in for the fall track, which means I would leave in August or September. If I could get an earlier track that would be fantastic. I chose BYU-Idaho after a lot of prayer and stress. I could easily have picked Texas Christian University, but I realized I wanted the full college experience. As hard as it may be, I want to live on my own and really discover myself even more than I already have. I want to live in an apartment (BYUI does not have dorms) and really make lifelong friends. I wanted a school that is as excited about me as I am them, and does not see me as just a number. That is the feel I get from BYUI. I haven’t seen the campus in person yet, but from pictures and what I’e heard, Rexburg is gorgeous. There is a lot to do and church activities like FHE, Family Home Evening, to make school feel like my home away from home. Also, I have more academic opportunities at BYUI. It is a cheaper school, so I would have the opportunity to do a semester abroad, which is not only on my bucket list, but has been a huge dream of mine ever since I knew what college was. I will be able to learn more about the church and scripture which is huge for me. I will also have the chance to take more classes to try out different and new opportunities. I want to take french, and stick with it. I also want to take some sewing classes or join the club, seeing as how I love sewing. If they offer any quilting classes I’ll take those too. They have tons of service opportunities which is huge for me. Also, they have a ton of clubs and outdoor classes and such to allow me to broaden my horizons. I am excited about the boat rentals, camping rentals, etc. so I can do what I love in a cost efficient way. Basically, I love everything that BYUI has to offer, not to sound like a walking advertisement. Well, I don’t want to write an essay or anything, so I’ll leave it at that.
