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.

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.

The most important thing to say is thank you: Thank you to the hundreds or thousands of people who voted for me in the two recent Maxim magazine cover model contests!
Neither contest resulted in what everyone at MeghaZine thinks would have been the correct outcome: me on a future cover of Maxim. After all, the team here, which is comprised of Panda, MeghaZine sports editor Mark Aldrich, many friends, and especially Panda, helped create and publish a website about me and my interests, and they put a photo of me on the virtual cover several times a month. But Panda and Mark were not the only two … um, creatures … who voted, since Maxim only allowed one vote per day, and in both contests, I finished so close that it made sense to cross my fingers about it.
A lot of people that I’ve never met or heard of voted for me, and that means a lot.
In the first contest, I came in third, and this month, Maxim Australia reported that I came in the top one-percent and was so close to the semi-finals round. It was also an honor to represent a great organization, K2 Adventures Foundation, in the most recent contest.
If I am invited to participate in a Maxim magazine cover model contest again, or almost any other one, count me in. If they keep inviting me and I keep coming in thiiiiiiis close, the worst-case scenario is I’ll be the Susan Lucci of Maxim cover model contests.
It’s a little frustrating to not win, but it warms my heart when I think of how many people voted for me online each day. ❤

Todd Montesi (of Brooklyn, NY) has been underrated, overlooked, not seen, and passed over countless times. I find that completely insane. This is about to change, though.
PN & Friends, created by and starring Montesi, is without a doubt, hands down the most uniquely deep, innovative, brilliant piece of art I have seen since I was a kid. Watch the entire series to know what I am talking about.
On the surface it’s a fun, original comedy with a great and memorable cast of characters. But, like Todd, this show definitely is not all surface. Not even close. Todd Montesi is a pure, unadulterated genius, and PN & Friends is an actual, pure, unadulterated genius work of art.

WELCOME TO MEGHAZINE!
I lost a contest!! Well, technically I came in third, but not winning the cover of Maxim Magazine gave me an idea: Start my own MeghaZine! Losing something in life doesn’t ever mean “give up.” It’s an opportunity. A gift. I have always learned more, and grown more as a person, when things have not gone my way. Take this Coronavirus pandemic for example. Talk about losing things … life as we knew it has changed, and probably forever. But if you look for opportunities for growth in every situation, you will find them.
