This is me. This is Mexico.

This is me. This is Mexico.

Welcome to reading about me. I’m guessing you have some interest in said me if you took the trouble to open this link, and for that, I thank you. Perhaps you just want to hear my latest tale of embarrassing myself, for which I can’t blame you, for there are many.  For those who are stalking me or trying to find out how I turned out after high school (a huge disappointment for both motivations) I suppose I should thank you too, but yikes.

A few words al principio. I am not one for rules, mainstream URL knowledge or typespeak. LOL, TTYL, ROFLMAO, and any number of acronyms I try to avoid at all costs, especially coming straight out of a mega-university that begins every guest lecture with a litany of acronyms/titles following Dr. ______,  supposedly meant to make you pay respectful attention to the speaker, because they are obviously better than you. I am not better than you, so I will avoid using a string of letters to express myself, or present myself thusly:

Megan blankety blank, BA, RN, BSN, MSN/MPH.

Ooh, but you do kind of feel bad, don’t you, not having so many letters you can put behind your name? Nothing that a few more years of esclavitud and hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt can’t give you. Think about it.

Here’s a thing that confuses me about writing blogs. Am I allowed to say my name? My age? The name of my husband? My dog? I’ll just ask for an excuse up front for not following all the rules, because I don’t want to spend hours online reading about URLs, Hyperlinks and the miniscule details of blogging. I’m trusting my knowledgeable and blog-seasoned friends to help me out with this one and steer me right when I go wrong.

This is how I got here.

This is how I got here.

My purpose for doing this is to share stories, impressions, occurrences, embarrassments, events, and weird Mexicanisms which come and go at whim in my mind yet never quite make it beyond the realm of facebook status- the one addiction I can’t seem able to break as of late. (note-this comes from having WAY too much free time). I have been blessed with a much-varied, colorful and adventurous life, and it’s the little things that really stick in my mind. Sometimes I want an outlet to share the pieces of my daily life, past and present, which emerge and impress upon my consciousness. But really it’s about connection, isn’t it? I’m not trying to make any money or win any awards here. You are reading this with a desire to be connected to me, and I write to be known by you- so this blog will simply be a piece of me given to you. I hope you enjoy, and thanks for reading.
