You MUST have something to look forward to. Something that you’re excited to do or can’t wait to create for yourself or others.

If you, like me, have the type of brain that doesn’t seem to function “normally” … screw that, by the way. Do whatever you need to in order to drop expectations of “normal.” Let your brain be the explosive device that it is.

My Favorite Things: Feb. 2021

My Favorite Things: Feb. 2021

By Meghan Jenkins, photos by Meghan Jenkins

I enjoyed sharing some of my favorite things last year here.

My endorsements of all these things come straight from me. None of these brands have asked me—yet!—to write about their products, so everything I say here is something I say to my friends because I use or simply enjoy these products and brands. I have a good life partly because of what’s in the photos here, as well as some other products that I will be sharing with you in the future.

‘Star Trek: The Next Generation,’ My Review by Panda🐼

‘Star Trek: The Next Generation,’ My Review by Panda🐼

STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION
[Editor’s Note: Meghan’s friend Panda, whom viewers of their improv comedy show The The Ding Wrong Show (available on YouTube) met long ago and who introduced herself to readers of this website a while back, decided that for this month’s movie review, she would literally include you the reader in her film journey …

“You said, ‘You, the reader,’ like it’s a person you know in person.”

“That was a turn-of-phrase, something writers use to make all of our readers feel like we are right there with them. This website has many readers.”

“Many?”

Hi Pizza Alien!

My name is Al and I live in Kentucky. I am married with three daughters. All of my girls are very beautiful, but they are, to put it bluntly, quite naïve. I am not sure how to navigate being a father to these three. Should I let them be the princesses that they are and spoil them like I do and hope that someone one day can make them happy? Or should I make them all get jobs? I’m nervous one of them will become a stripper just for the outfits though.

Please help, Al, Kentucky

You Are a Powerhouse

You Are a Powerhouse

By Meghan Jenkins
You are here to change the world in some amazing way!

* * * *
A lot of people are stuck in situations that are unfair. Home life might be in complete shambles, maybe you are unlucky in love and/or finances, perhaps you have a sister you wish you got along with but don’t … death, disease, poverty are literally everywhere you look. I know that I have felt helpless and hopeless. I know that feeling well. Desperate, lonely, misunderstood and wondering “why am I here?” and “what is the point?”
