I’m never any good at writing about me’s. I over think and worry too much, and press the backspace key about five hundred times, and then I give up. I’ve learned that the people who care about you most in life know more about you than you know yourself. I’m fully convinced that my best friend knows me better than any person on this planet, so here it goes: About Me, written by Lucy.
Say hi to a seventeen year old New York City girl who just can’t wait to leave this place and find a new one. Hi, I’m Megan and I’m terrified of the future. I’ve lived in New York City since I was two years old, so yes it’s home to me, but I can’t wait to move.
If you asked me what makes my world go round, I’d say music. It keeps me sane. Country music holds the key to my heart and Nashville is my dream. I live and breathe for concerts because for an hour or two I can forget about everything that’s worrying me and feel 100% content. Taylor Swift has changed me in a way that I find hard to explain, she’s taught me so much more than I ever thought she could. Megan and Liz are two of my favorite people I’ve ever known, and I’m so grateful that I’ve been able to watch them grow as both artists and as people over the insane ride that they’re on.
I couldn’t tell you what I want to do in the future, because it’s the one thing in the world that terrifies me, but I’m working on it. I know how much I’ve changed over the past few years, and I know I’m changing all the time, but that’s what comes with growing up. Over-thinker might as well be my middle name and I worry about everything under the sun. My friends live all over the place, some near and some far. My best friend lives over 3500 miles away and I miss her more and more every day. But I mean it when I say that my friends get me through anything and everything, and I’m so grateful to have them in my life, even if a good handful of them live far away from me.
I’m never sure whether I prefer Winter or Summer, I guess they both come with their perks and their downfalls. If I could I would spend 95% of my time in sweatpants, but then I also adore dressing up. I’m always unsure on my opinion of coffee, but I am in love with Starbucks. If it was possible I would eat Cinnabon every day of my life, and I have got the biggest love for cookies that you’ll ever see. I’m a sucker for twinkly lights and anything sparkly, North Carolina is one of the best places I know and I hate being yelled at. I find myself daydreaming a lot, whether that’s a bad thing or not I’ll let you decide.
I overuse Instagram (oops) and I’m hopelessly in love with my cats. It is genuinely a surprise to me when people stick around and I wear scarves a lot. I try to be as optimistic as I can be, but sometimes that proves harder that I anticipate and I let myself fall. If I could I’d wear dresses all year round and school will always be important to me - even if I don’t like it at all. If my nails aren’t painted I feel like there’s something missing, and I’m the hopeless romantic who is yet to have experienced love, whatever that may be. I can’t wait to be able to say I’ve travelled the world, and I’m so excited for the day where I can look myself in the mirror and say “I am completely and utterly 100% happy with my life.”
If you’ve read all of this, then I’m so grateful that you’re actually interested in my life. If you ever need someone to vent to, or you want advice or you just want to come and say hi then you know where my ask box is :) But for now, thank you for being your wonderful and lovely self, and never forget how special you are.
