Three Things About Myself

  1. I am married to a handsome man from Ireland. We both reside in St. Louis, Missouri in a house with one dog named Padme (from Star Wars, of course).
  2. I am a graphic designer and 3D modeler. I have a degree in Game Art and have been pursuing my career dreams for about 4 years now.
  3. Before I die, I want to create a video game that really touches people with amazing art. I want to work with fun and fantastic people on this project.

Meagan’s Questions

1. What part of blogging do you enjoy most? (i.e. writing, taking pictures, connecting with others, etc.)

I guess the part I enjoy the most is writing. It definitely feels like an outlet for me and I get to choose what I write about. It’s therapeutic but also fun!

2. How has blogging influenced your daily life?

I definitely take more pictures now, and things that I buy I usually think “should I review this for the blog?” We’re also designing a room in the house right now (The Library) where I’m going to start vlogging as an accompaniment to my blog (but that’s a secret so shhhh…).

3. Do you prefer blogging in the morning, afternoon, nighttime, or whenever you get the chance?

Strangely enough, I start in the morning then repeatedly come back to it until the afternoon. I get out all my thoughts like a word vomit then come back later, read it, adjust and edit, then start on the next post.

4. What is the one thing about your blog you wish you could change?

I wish I had more time to devote to it. I’d love to throw a Saturday Suggestion up every Saturday. I’d love to do some interviews of fellow geeks and cosplayers. There’s just never enough time in the day to give my blog the attention it deserves.

(Weird Q) Do you need noises to fall asleep or silence?

Depends on the “noises.” I don’t mind the faint sounds of a movie or radio. When it comes to the constant dripping of the spout outside the house that sounds like hammers hammering inside the bedroom, I want to rip it off with my bare hands…. But when it’s silent I find myself “listening” for things that go bump in the night. So noises I suppose, within reason.
