My name is Meghan, I'm 25 and I never want to be average.
I'm currently traveling the world.
22 and 30.
All of these news articles and comments about Ebola are either “you’re not freaking out enough” or “you’re freaking out too much.” There’s no in between.

Ugh I fucking love this. When I say I love Asia, people think I’m just really into Japan. No. No. This I what I love to learn about. There’s so much diversity that hardly anyone knows is there. And it’s all just so fucking cool and dignified like they don’t give a shit if you know about their cultures. I’m dying to go back.
I’m realizing that my roommate/boss is super homophobic and it makes me sad that this is what she’s teaching her kids. They’re not even allowed to watch Modern Family anymore because there’s a gay couple and when the six year old called it gross (copying her mother, she doesn’t yet know what she’s saying) I corrected her and told her that love is not gross and it obviously pissed of the parents. I get that they’re Arab Muslims and its a cultural thing and I can’t say anything because she’s my employer and I’m her live-in nanny and she does so much for me but still it’s making me so sad and upset that she’s teaching her children these things.
if anyone ever wanted to give me a present, this would be the coolest fucking thing. Geodes carved into fucking skulls.
I love the last one :)
