Happy Thanksgiving... Yesterday!!!

Only a day late, right?

It was a crazy busy day too. I didn't get a chance to make a post!

I spent the day with my parents, brothers, a cousin from my dad's side, and much of my mom's family!

We had so much fun and ate SOO much food. I'm unbelievably full. I'm pretty sure between yesterday and part two with the leftovers today, I'm not going to be hungry for another 3 days.

My aunt and two cousins from New Jersey and my cousin from the Coast Guard Academy are all staying at our house for the weekend. On top of my brother and me home from school, our house is packed! It's been a ton of fun so far =)

I also went to see New Moon for the third time yesterday. I went with my two cousins. It was still excellent the third time!

I didn't participate in black friday today. I had nothing I needed to buy at the moment. I still think it was too early to start Christmas yesterday and I saw Christmas lights up last night. I understand if people want to play music now that's fine, but I think I'm going to wait until Tuesday =)

Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! I hope your stomachs are full and that tryptophan treated you well =D

what i think

I think it's pretty obvious I went to see New Moon at midnight the other night. I only slept 5 hours but it was totes worth it (plus I caught up by sleeping 13 hours last night).

I thought it was 10x better than Twilight. I would say it was 1349013x better, but we're saying realistic numbers here. I was really happy with it.

My favvy fav parts were (*spoilerish*):

1. The ending. Absolutely perfect! Couldn't have been a better set up.

2. The Volturi. They were bombdotcom. Aro was creepy. Like super creepy, my skin was crawling when he talked. Plus the throwing around of Edward wasn't in the book, but it fit in there seamlessly.

3. When Edward finds out through Jacob that Charlie is arranging the funeral. I loved seeing him crushing the phone. It was the only way you could truly see how devastated he was when he thought Bella had died.

4. Charlie. He was just a scene stealer. He was such an awkward dad, he rocked!

5. The months. I had no idea what they were going to do to show Bella's catatonic state during those blank pages that break my heart every time I reread New Moon, but they pulled it off!!

Those are just a few of my favorite parts, there were many more. I'm Team Edward all the way. I didn't debate changing teams when I saw Jacob take his shirt off (many times) or when Jacob and Bella almost kissed. I couldn't wait to see Edward again. I'm going to see New Moon again tomorrow afternoon and I can't wait =D

tag! you're it

I've never been tagged before let alone awarded a blog award and I'm quite happy about it! Thank You Vanessa!!

She combined the two awards into one, so I guess I'll just do the same =)

Photobucket + Photobucket

The rules for Kreativ blogger are:
1) List 7 things about myself that others may not know
2) Award 7 people with the award
And the Honest Scrap Award:
1) divulge 10 honest things about yourself
2) Pass the award onto 7 bloggers who you believe will be 100% truthful

Now me =)

1. I've lived in my hometown for almost 15 years. I moved here when I was 5 years old and can still sort of remember my last day at my school. It was Halloween and I was in Kindergarten.

2. I always had a hard time making friends when I was younger. I got better at it as I got older (specifically sophomore year in high school).

3. I have never dyed my hair, until this weekend. And I LOVE it =)

4. I've never been on a date/had a boyfriend. I wish that would change...

5. Finding Nemo is my favorite movie.

6. All my money goes towards movies, music, and candy.

7. I procrastinate so bad. I usually wait until the very last minute to do papers or projects. I hate it, but still do it anyway.

8. I love to laugh. If you can make me laugh, we can get along very well. I think laughter and happiness are something you can absolutely create in your life. It's the best help when things aren't the best for you at the time. I strive to stay happy every day. And sort of to go along with that, I hate crying in front of people. I hate crying period and that has been quite the problem in the past...

9. I watch Disney Channel all the time. I usually watch it when no one else is around though =)

10. I would love to study abroad in England. I think that would be the most amazing experience ever! Plus I love British accents ;)

Now I tag:

here it is

Kellan Lutz is gorgeous. That is all.

Here's the story.

I went to the mall with Chelsea and Sydney (my sleeping on the mall floor buddies) and Sydney's friends Brianna and Jillian. We got to the mall around 4pm. The autograph signing was set to start at 5:45. When we got to the mall there were already over 200 people. We asked what time the line started forming. The Hot Topic person said they started seeing people at around 2:30!

We had to wait outside for an hour in the cold. The mall would only let 220 people stand in line inside the mall. Here's Sydney, Chelsea, and me (the other girls didn't have bracelets for the signing so they waited inside).


The signing started and we made our way inside. There were so many news reporters there covering the story. My parents saw me on the news =)


We couldn't take pictures with him or of him, couldn't have him sign anything personal, and he couldn't personalize anything. Sorry I can't show a pic wicked close up =/
He was soo sweet to this little girl a couple of people in front of me. She was very shy when she was at the table. Kellan asked her a question and she didn't hear him or was really nervous he was actually talking to her so she started walking away. He said, "I'm not letting you go that easily" and she turned around. He gave her a high five, it was so nice!!

I couldn't think of anything to say to him so I just said hi and thank you. When he looked at me, oh my gosh... Yup I was star struck, haha!

After we said hi and got our posters we went and put them in the car so we wouldn't bend and ruin them, we went over to the stage. There were a lot of people there but we got a pretty good standing spot on the side about 3 or 4 people deep. We didn't have to wait very long before the band Hurricane Bells performed. They sing the song "Monster" on the New Moon soundtrack.


They sang 4 songs. They were pretty good, not really my kind of music but they put on a good performance.
We had to wait half an hour for Kellan to come out. In the meantime, a radio dj was doing some trivia and giving out prizes. So the time finally came for Kellan to come out!!
(warning: turn your volume down)

He has a picture of Ashley Greene because she was suppose to come to our stop on the tour, but something came up (she had filming for Eclipse to do) and she couldn't come. I thought it was so cute. When he came in, we were literally forced forward by the crowd. It was very close quarters to say the least.

Here he is!


It's a good thing I'm tall.




He talked about how Eclipse is going to be "dark and edgy" and how he loved doing the fight sequences and stunts!!
He said his favorite part of playing Emmett is being able to make fun of Bella. He said he would make Kristen Stewart laugh during their scenes!!
His favorite book in the series is Eclipse (which is mine too!!)
He says he loves going to fan events like the one last night instead of the "boring" press tours, haha =)

It was only a half hour long, but it was so much fun! It was totally worth sleeping on the floor! I can't wait for New Moon to open in a week =D I have my ticket for the midnight show (technically the 12:10 show because the 12:01 and 12:05 were sold out!!) I. can. not. wait!!!

Here's the poster with his signature:


I have a few more pictures of him and video. Let me know if you guys want to see more =)

here's to happiness

In this post I said this November was going to be better than November last year. Let me tell you a little story.

My mom’s side of the family was always very close when I was younger. My mom has two brothers and two sisters. I can remember going to visit my grandparents at their house a half hour away from my house all the time on the weekends. We would have family parties with all my aunts, uncles (including my great aunt and uncle), and cousins all the time. Thanksgiving and Christmas were the greatest holidays! I loved hanging out with everyone.

We were all growing up. My grandparents and great aunt and uncle ended up moving to Florida in retirement. My aunt, uncle and cousins were always moving because my uncle is in the Coast Guard. My uncle, aunt and cousin moved to Florida for job opportunities. I still have family that live around me in MA and RI, but the rest of the family is all spread out now.

Now my grandmother had been sick all my life. She had emphysema and other breathing problems. That’s another reason why they had moved down to Florida, to help her breathe more easily. No matter how sick she got, she never complained. She had her good days and bad days, but she NEVER complained. Well, a year ago tomorrow she passed away.

That day was probably the saddest day of my life. I accidentally found out and was devastated. I knew my mom had flown down to Florida the day before but I didn’t know she was so sick. I found out on a Thursday night in the midst of studying for 3 different tests the next day. Let’s just say the studying went out the window.

So my dad picked me up the next day and we went to Boston and picked up my older brother. We ended up flying to Florida on Sunday for her funeral and to be with everyone else.

Something you need to know about my family is we don’t doom and gloom when someone passes away. We didn’t focus on her death, we focused on her life. We celebrated her life while we were in Florida. We were ALL together again and said our goodbyes to the strongest person I’ve ever met. I miss my grandmother every day.

I know this November is going to be better than last November because I’m not struck with the loss of my grandmother. I know she’s breathing easier in heaven and watching over me every day. I wish I could tell her how much happier I am where I am today than from last year. I think she’s definitely playing a part in that. =)

I love you Gramma and miss you every day! Love Meg

new music

I kind of really like music. I love walking to class with my earbuds in listening to my newest music. I love getting a new song I've fallen in love with and playing it on repeat 10 times before I figure I should move onto the next one before I start to get sick of it. I love loading my ipod touch with my new songs. I love sharing new songs with friends.

I'm not super picky. I enjoy mostly top 40/pop music. I like really upbeat music that I can sing my heart out to. I wish I could show you my itunes music library. That would definitely give you a better idea of my music preferences.

I LOVE singing in the car, in my dorm room, my bedroom at home, even though I'm kind of a terrible singer. I always wished I had an amazing voice and people wanted me to sing. I got over that fast, but will still sing if I love the song. I'll even break out in song sometimes if I have a song stuck in my head.

I say all this because I'm listening to some new songs right now. It just inspired me to write a blog post about how much I love listening to music.

I know my preferences change depending on what kind of mood I'm in or what's going on right now in my life. Pretty sure everyone is like that in one way or another.

I'm listening to Demi Lovato's latest CD at the moment. I have been listening to the New Moon soundtrack, "Just Haven't Met You Yet" by Michael Buble, some songs from Glee, and I'm always listening to Owl City.

What are you listening to now?

welcome november!!

Happy November 1st!!

I failed and forgot to do a blog to say Happy Halloween, so...


Let me explain to you the craziest, weirdest Halloween I've had in years or maybe ever.

I said earlier in October that I was going to a Haunted House and that I would be working this Haunted House on Halloween. Well I did! But let's start back to Friday first.

I went to my 8am class, the only class I have on Fridays. It turns out there was less than half the class there, so my professor cancelled class.
After having no class, I went to breakfast with my friends like I do every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Then I worked the table for caricatures for Homecoming and PC. I hung out in my room, took a quick nap, and went to float building for the homecoming parade at 8. Afterwards I went and hung out with some cool people watching them play old school Super Mario on the original Nintendo. Pretty normal friday night.

Here's where the start of my Halloween began. My friend Chelsea came by and picked me up at 11:30 pm. We drove to the Mall an hour away. Then we camped out on the floor until 8 am.
Now, why the heck was I camping out on the floor? To buy my t-shirt and receive my wristband to meet Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz who play Alice and Emmett Cullen from the Twilight movies =D
Hot Topic was selling 500 limited edition The Twilight Saga: New Moon t-shirts. The wristband came with it and gives us the chance to meet these actors and get their autographs!! And I got mine!!! So here's to November 12th when they'll be at the mall!!! I'm so excited and can not wait =D

Since I basically slept on the floor of the mall friday night, I slept from 10-3. A nice 5 hour nap. I had to get up and get ready to go to Barrett's Haunted House at 4:30.
We got there and were brought into the House for a tour. Everything was running, but since we were the characters in it, there were no people to jump out at you. When I went a couple weeks ago, it was really scary, especially when the people jump out at you. This time going through it was STILL scary. The place is just eerie and gross. I kind of chickened out and was going to be the trailer watcher, all by myself sitting in the trailer watching everyone's things. I was alright with it. But the guy who runs the house asked if I wanted to be a scraper. I was very apprehensive and wanted to say no. But he assured me all I would be doing is sitting on a stool running a metal wand against a grate and operating an air cannon. I accepted, it sounded easy enough. It was easy. The scraper made sparks and the air cannon was perfect for scaring people. The only downside. I had to sit in this little closet thing in the PITCH DARK all by myself. I was a little nervous, but by the end I was so tired I just went with it.
I scared so many people! Sparks in a completely dark room is really scary. Add the air cannon when they least expected it and they went running into the next room!!

I know this November is going to be a better November than last year was. Of course I'll explain all that later.

Happy November Everyone! Enjoy the weather and start fasting for Thanksgiving =)
