Blog Meet & Greet

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Okay, deep breath. I have never done anything like this before, but there is always a first.
I think it's a great way to get to know a little bit more about bloggers, albeit a bit of the funny information that you never knew. Today, I'm linking up with these two lovely ladies. First is Raquel, where I found the post, and also Michelle, whose cute idea this is.

Here goes nothing.

Second Floor Living is the brainchild of a girl trapped in a technical writing world. This is my means of escaping. This is actually all in my About Me page, but I'll put it up here for today.  The theme of my blog is based on the Feist song, Mushaboom. 

In the song, a young girl, let's call her Megan, sings about things she would like to have, things she is yearning for. But in the meantime, she is stuck in an apartment, as her paycheck doesn't match up with her dreams. 

Second Floor Living without a yard.   

But this girl has something going for her. She has a man to stick it out, making a home from a rented house. This man is my Flip. The love of my life.  And together, we will collect the moments, one by one, which I document here. I started this little piece of my heart in the heat of the summer, January 2011.

Ten things about me:
  • I am 1, 78 m tall. That is fairly tall for a girl
  • I am deathly afraid of the dark, spiders, heights, fat people (like morbidly obese, no offense) and I don't like being touched. Am I too weird?
  • The first thing I do when I get home, well it's a little ritual actually, is kiss Flip hello and then run for the loo. If I don't run for the loo, Flip gets worried.
  • My thing in the whole wide world is a dog.
  • I don't wear jewelery. I have the normal piercings in each ear, but I don't wear earrings. I don't wear a watch, bracelets, rings, amulets, chains, whatever else is in the jewelery world. I just don't like the feel of them and I usually lose it (like in I have no idea where they are) within two days.
  • I can spend hours watching Nickelodeon, the Kardashians, the Style Network, the Food Network and Disney Channel.
  • I hate all foods. Pretty much. I dislike pasta, I dislike fruit, I dislike McDonalds, I dislike coke. I'm not a big fan of chocolate. But if you hold something greasy in front of me, you should be careful, I might just eat your hand as well. And I love vegetables
  • I refuse to assume the role of the typical housewife. I don't cook, I don't like to clean, even though I have to sometimes.
  • I am extremely stubborn and always right. Wow, I sound like such a bitch today.
  • I don't care much for fashion or style. If it fits, I'll wear it. This doesn't mean that I sloff around in tracksuits, oversized t-shirts and trainers all day.

Love this idea! - Funny enough I'm also a little feminist myself - I couldn't even boil an until about a year and a half ago... and Jurgen and I split all the chores pretty much down the middle :)

Also wearing jewelry doesn't come naturally to me - this year though I made a goal to try and wear one piece everyday and I'm hacking it out so far haha.

Great to learn a bit more about you! And I love that these aren't the generic "my favorite color is blue, my favorite food is pizza and so on". Although, I can't understand your disdain for pasta or chocolate. Those are like, the best things ever! haha.

You have an ADORABLE blog! Did you make it yourself? Where did you get the background?

I am Megan said...

Hey guys! Thanks for stopping by!

I think I sent you all a message via gmail already.

Sarah, thanks! I designed it myself yes, the background was just one of blogger's own templates.
