Organize Your Life with a Private Discord Server in 5 Steps!

Organize Your Life with a Private Discord Server in 5 Steps!

Y’all. I stumbled across this TikTok that was like “make a private discord server to organize your life” and I had to do a double-triple take. How did I not think of this myself?! I don’t know about you, but my bookmarks, Etsy favorites, Pins, and lists get lost or disappear into the ether. As we speak, I am still looking for something I could have sworn I favorited on Etsy. And how many times has a pin been taken down and the link is lost to you forever? Too many if you ask me! Why is this post so high energy? I’m just excited to pass this on to someone who is as (sometimes) disorganized and as easily distracted as myself. I needed a space to collect all of these links, posts, and word dumps other than a million notes on my iPhone and Google Drive. The answer was this private Discord server brought to you by none other than TikTok.

**As a general warning, Discord is not a safe place to store sensitive or identifying information. Please do not put passwords, addresses, or any other sensitive information in your private Discord server. Use it for fun stuff and brain dumps only!**

How to Create a Cute Office Snack Cart

How to Create a Cute Office Snack Cart

Back in March, I finally gave into the snack cart TikTok trend and got myself a utility-turned-snack cart. If you haven’t seen this snack cart trend yet, creators on TikTok are building snack carts, decorating them, then filling them with snacks ASMR style. You can check out my video below to take a look at my empty decorated snack cart!

So why a snack cart you may ask? Well other than just not being able to get enough of the video trend, I found myself stuck in my upstairs home office practically starving from skipping meals! I would get off of work in the afternoon, head downstairs to the kitchen, and inhale anything that I could eat immediately like chips, cookies, etc. That behavior has really wrecked my eating habits and self confidence so I was looking for ways I could give myself easy access to healthy foods and snacks when I can’t get away from my desk for a proper meal. Enter: my Sailor Moon Snack Cart.

My Simple & Affordable YouTube Filming Setup

My Simple & Affordable YouTube Filming Setup

I thought it was about time that I let my readers take a peek behind the curtain of the meggsngrits’ YouTube filming setup. I started with some simple basics to just get started with YouTube and streaming and have slowly added to it as time has gone by. I still have plans for more upgrades down the line, but I wanted to share some options for those of you who have been wanting to create your own setup for YouTube or Twitch. While I have yet to stream on Twitch in an official capacity, these have been tried and true for all of my recording needs. If you are looking for a budget-friendly filming setup, this is the setup for you! Quick Disclaimer: Due to the pandemic, many prices have fluctuated in the time I have purchased these products. If they do not fit within your budget now, you can always save them to a wish list for later. You work hard for your money; don’t spend it on something you can wait for.

From humble beginnings of using my old Samsung Galaxy S6 phone and a “husband-approved” pre-built gaming PC (with free monitors and a free keyboard from a friend), to a still-humble-but-a-bit-nicer custom PC setup, I bring you the current studio filming equipment for the meggsngrits YouTube channel! Below you will find options for some of the basic of basics for getting started creating your very own YouTube videos along with a little blurb of a review by myself. Feel free to ask questions on these in the comments down below, and I will do my very best to answer them!
