Every month or so (sometimes day, sometimes week) I change my mind in regards to what I want to do with my life. It’s how I’ve always been, ever since I was a small child. My least favourite phase was when I was incredibly fond of the Playboy Bunny and needing to own everything with…… Continue reading The Rollercoaster of Meg
YOU GUYS. MAKE IT STOP. This is what happens when you give me an iPad while in the middle of a bored, angsty and rage filled PMS tirade. I’m also creatively blocked and apparently the only thing my brain can come up with is awful tombstones…? Or is it headstones? Gravestones? Whatever, Sharon, I don’t…… Continue reading Horrible Tombstones
Let me be clear, I’m generally pretty stoked on my gender. And not in a, boobs are fun look I get to play with them whenever I want, kind of way.

The body positivity movement is one of them. As you know, I have lots to say on how women should unite in a bra-burning-esque…… Continue reading Love.
Bless us thee: Oscars. I LOVE the oscars. Every year I watch all the movies that are up for best picture to make sure I know what the fuck is going on when I watch them. If I was unemployed I would endeavour to watch all the movies that are nominated. Every single one. Unfortunately, I…… Continue reading Nominees for Best Picture: My Favorites
I hear it all the time from people who are just entering their quarter life crisis. (Trust me, that doesn’t exclude me) Sidebar: A quarter life crisis if you don’t know, is kind of like a mid life crisis but with a lot less money and a lot more music festivals. What I hear is, When…… Continue reading Why Your ‘Dream Job’ is a Lie
