What I’m Into and What I’m Not Into: April Edition

As you have probably noticed, I am in a bit of a blogging rut. It’s not necessarily for lack of content; I’m running the most – and best – I have since last month’s knee diagnosis. If we are being totally honest, I just can’t bring myself to update this every day with the same ole “I ran ___ miles on the treadmill then I strength trained/did yoga/parkoured.” To borrow from two of my favorite memes, ain’t nobody got time for that and no1curr.

I have, however, been excited (and less than thrilled) about a variety of different things lately….so much so that one might even ask, “Hey Meghan…what are you into these days?” Continue reading

Spring Has (Finally) Sprung!

After what seemed like the longest Georgia winter in recent memory, I’ve been spending most of my free time outside in this gorgeous weather (insanely high pollen count not included in that description) and thus neglecting the ole blog. My apologies! Here’s a quick look at what I’ve been up to these past few days.

Spring Break Spin Sesh.

By the time Friday rolled around, I could hardly concentrate on anything remotely grown up-related. My brain waves looked like a never-ending loop of that clip of James Franco in the Spring Breakers trailer, saying “Sprang braaaaaake” with a mouth full of gold.

BuzzFeed never lets me down.

This weekend hasn’t let me down. I won’t rehash all of the start to the Spring Break 2k13 fun, but here are some photos that best illustrate just how much we let the good times roll. Spoiler alert: things get crazy. Continue reading

48 Hours in New York City.

Geez, long time, no blog. After New York, I was only home for two days before dashing off to Arkansas to visit my little brother before he leaves on his second tour of Afghanistan this week. He deploys early Thursday morning; while I have no doubt we will be seeing his face in September, I’d appreciate it if you would keep him in your thoughts, blogworld!

I have been working on this post for a whole seven days – and it’s my 50th post! – so I think it’s time to hit publish and not look back!

48 Hours in the Big Apple

Thanks to lots of advanced research (shoutout to Google Maps and Trip Advisor), I was able to cover a lot of ground in a relatively short time in New York.

Oh Deer.

A bit of non-running or yoga fun to start this entry off! Brandon Stanton, the man behind the amazing and wildly popular photoblog Humans of New York, graduated from the school where I work. February is our annual Arts Month celebration, so today Brandon came to talk to Preschoolers, Middle Schoolers, and Upper Schoolers about his awesome photos and gave the kids advice about how important it is to do what you love.

In that moment, sitting in the middle of all of the excited Upper Schoolers, taking photos and notes of Brandon’s talk, I felt very fortunate to be able to do what I love. Check out Humans of New York, and you won’t regret it. Seriously. Brandon’s photos are powerful and intimate, and each one tells a different story . Continue reading
