I'm Meg! I'm a doctoral student at TTU working for a degree in
I'm an extrovert and decidedly not a good paperwork person. I find
myself quickly and easily obsessed with a great many ideas, but a
few have stuck around long enough to become parts and pieces of a
personal code of ethics.
I do metaphysical/new age energy stuff, and I love it. I believe in
the healing power of touch. I believe that happiness often begins
with the decision to be happy and the willfulness to see it
That being said, I also believe in Jack Daniels and Diet Coke. Or
biscuits and gravy. Or the salads at Olive Garden. Or Netflix and
What I’m doing with my life
I'm hurling myself at my education full-force and learning rapidly
how to better respect my students and offer them solid educational
experiences and practices.
I’m really good at
I'm great at teaching people to meditate or activate their energy.
I'm also good at laughing. I'm a good teacher, and it's something I
love doing--my students are such a huge part of my heart.
The first things people usually notice about me
People usually hear me laughing before they see me. And there's my
hair (which is red and huge and curly). I like to think I'm a very
inviting person and that I'm generally open to new people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I recently fell absolutely in love with the Black Jewels Trilogy by
Anne Bishop. I also read a lot of plays. Like a lot of plays. I
really like Greek tragedies. It's kind of nerdy.
I love movies and television. Most movies. I'm not gonna
lie--action movies are really hard for me to watch and care about.
Other than that, movies are great. I LOVE seeing movies in movie
theaters, especially those with really incredible graphics or
animation. As far as TV goes...if anyone tries to come between me
and Downton Abbey...I will take them out. I've recently fallen in
love with Orange is the New Black and American Horror Story.
I listen to blues music, classic rock, alt rock from the nineties,
operas, jazz, and some new stuff. Not a lot, but some. My favorite
thing is live music--a live blues concert is perfection. Especially
with a beer in hand.
The six things I could never do without
My cat Loretta
Another Diet Coke--the bitch don't play.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The potential for community outreach through theatre.
Actively putting positivity into the world around me.
How to be a better teacher.
What my cat thinks of my fashion decisions.
On a typical Friday night I am
If not in rehearsal, I'm probably having some beers and possibly watching bad television or spending time with friends. Or yelling about Feminism. Or all of the above.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a total cat lady. I mean, I only have one cat, but I talk to
her in these weird voices all the time.
You should message me if
You should message me if you want to. And if you have a really good sense of humor. Look, think of the funniest person you know. If you can make that person laugh, then you're funny. Bottom line.
