This is a project. About me. Megan.

Why is it that we are only able to experience the world from one perspective, our own? I don’t know. But this project is an attempt to make the most of that perspective.

First rule of writing: show, don’t tell.

I’m not interested in labels. I’m more interested in how we decide to represent our own stories, and how that shapes the way we – and those around us – exist and experience life.

Some principles of life: dream, explore, live a lot.

My favorite series is The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater – not just because the plot appeals to my love for adventure, but because the characters are each so real, whole, and human, and because every line of Stiefvater’s prose aches of knowing that something so beautiful, so sharp, and so messy, can still have an ending. Lately I’ve also developed a taste for Korean music, especially Korean hip hop, indie, and r&b. There’s just something about it that feels like home.

I’ve always been passionate about empowering others in technology and entrepreneurship, but after years of trying to reconcile my many interests and trying to understand where I fit into in the STEM world, I’m starting to figure out the why. Why I’m studying CS. Why I can love CS and still love subjects that seem to exist on a totally different plane of the universe (hint: they don’t). I know Java and a bit of Python, but I’m also pretty hyped up about open source and AI. Always ready to learn new things!

I think I’d also like to go to a star party or go cloud watching one day. I dunno, it’s just… one of those things you have to do.

But don’t expect all the answers.

This isn’t a comprehensive picture of everything I am. It’s just a piece (an infinitesimally small piece). You’d have to read every piece I write, see every project I pour myself into, observe every interaction I have with those around me to get even a glimpse of who I really am. But let’s see how this goes. There are a lot of things I want to do, and very little time to do them.

“Safe as life.”

This is a quote to live by, and I think it’s safe (as life) to say I’m a little in love with this quote, so you’ll probably see it a lot. Either way, creds to Maggie Stiefvater for bringing something as beautiful as Gansey of The Raven Boys to life, so that he can provide us with such beautiful pieces of wisdom. I think this is a good place to end.
