Meg here! It’s my 33rd birthday! Wow! the same year Jesus died! Alexander The Great took over the world AND I am renewing my license tomorrow. Huge accomplishments all the way around! Thanks to Elisabeth Caren for taking this photo of me!

Thank-you very much to all of you that made this year wonderful and I appreciate all of you very much.

“It was the best of times; it was the worst of times”. — Charles Dickens (A Tale of Two Cities, 1859) Yes, that could sum up year 32 for me. A lot of hardship and tragedy-but a lot of laughs and love. I’m hoping next year will be a bit quieter…

#1 Stop trying to please everyone.
I’m always trying to do favors and get people jobs and places to live and just always put myself out for other people. At the end of it I am drained and tired. It just kind of shocks me that after I’ve completely gone out of my way-I receive little to no thanks. Something that I would have sent an appreciation gift for or at the very least a hand-written Thank-you card. I’m not saying that I’m turning into some sort of rude ingrate. I’m just saying I’m not going to keep banging my head on the same wall!

#2 Go Somewhere. When I was 20 years old and I first moved to Los Angeles, a neighbor had all these cool rugs and pots. She told me that she got them in Mexico because there were all these great deals there. I hopped into my car and drove..I DROVE TO MEXICO BY MYSELF. Once I had crossed the border and saw chickens running across the road I was on I realized diving alone in a country I..
 A. Knew nothing about
 B. Don’t speak a lick of Spanish.
It hit me. Driving around a thrd world country looking for a rug and pottery discount store may not have been the smartest idea.Surprised Thankfully, I made it home safe and sound! My other travels out of the country have included Europe. London to be specific. Once.
I am not exactly a well traveled person. Another thing I am going to work on in year 33!

#3.Take a Class-This may shock some of you…I didn’t enjoy school. I was bored out of my head and would only show up for my English Lit class. High School English Lit. College was completely out of the question. It was all I could do to get out of high school. I was ready to start my life and was all finished with classes. Reading goal #2 is making me think “may not be a bad idea to take a Spanish class.” I’m going to have to balance that with a fun class-make-up artist class here I come!

#4 Be More Appreciative to Megheads!
The amazing stories that you share! The hysterical wit, the insane support and the all around welcoming feeling of acceptance and love is just beyond! You ladies are the bees knees! The Makeup Points packages are going to be mailed Thursday. If you have turned your points between June 29th and July 10th you are in this mailing! Keep tight! We got a TON turned in so we are keeping on it!! We haven’t forgotten you!!

#5 Work On My Patience! Love, Money, Luck-Heck-SANITY will all come. I have to just relax and remember I can’t really force things to “hurry up.” So be patient with me as well ladies! I promise you’ll get your packs-we just got slammola’ed (see have to take a Spanish class 🙂

Thanks for all of your love and support and making 32 great! On to 33!!
