I have literally hit the wall. Several times. My writing's seriously backed up and school isn't fairing much better. Nine weeks of headaches and dizziness will do that to a person apparently. I've had an MRI done(not fun to do with a migraine BTW) and no problems there, got my eyes checked out and they're normal too(for my eyes that is). So, I have no idea what the heck my problem is. That fact that I'm even able to write this post amazes me at this point. What amazes me further is the fact I even bothered trying to write this considering I doubt anybody reads this...depressing, isn't it?

In any case, that trip to Europe I mentioned a few months ago was a complete bust. Turns out I couldn't go because we needed the money for another cause: moving into a new house. So instead of going to Europe, I got to spend 10 sweltering days of my summer moving boxes, pushing furniture, and cleaning everything.

In conclusion, my life pretty much sucks right now.

My Kooky Family

Wow, two weeks since my last post and still no comments. Something tells me I'll have to find a new method of raising money very soon.

Anyway, I figured it's time to introduce whomever is reading this to some of my family. First off, here's my mom. For anybody interested in Pokemon, here's my brother. And now, introducing three of the more...unusual members of my family.

This here is Drucilla, age 4, almost 5. She's a finicky little Manecoon we adopted a few years back from Petsmart. She's a bit standoff-ish, but when she's affectionate, she's really affectionate.

This is Xander, age 17 months. He's a little nutcase. My dad found him by chance one day during his lunch break by the local Burger King. He wasn't sure if the little guy was lost or something, so he didn't go after him until coming back later and even then Xander didn't make it easy for him. He went running through the woods and hid in a tree stump. It took some coaxing with chicken nuggets(which BK kindly donated) to get him out. We took him to Petsmart to get him checked out and found that he was only about 2 or so weeks old at the time. My dad took a liking to him and let us keep him. Ever since, he has been driving us bonkers and he has gotten into some...odd habits, to say the least(like laying down in bathroom sinks).

Last but not least, Aslan, age 15. This big guy is almost as old as me(fyi, I'm 16 this Wednesday), but he hasn't always been with us. We got him from an old friend when he was a year old, but because we were always on the move(not so much anymore, thankfully) we had to give him up to my grandmother. And while you can't tell from this angle, he is a very big boy. He is extremely furry and laid back with the habit of grooming hair, especially if it's really long.

These guys can drive me up a wall, but like most family I wouldn't give them up for anything.

People to People

Okay, so as I said in my last post, I started this blog to raise some money. Me and my parents can't do it by ourselves, so my mom suggested I try doing this.

"Why do you need money?" is probably what a lot of you are wondering so here's why. Last year, I was accepted as a student ambassador on the People to People European Odyssey. That means that I get to represent the United States in France, Italy, and Greece for three weeks this summer. Obviously a trip like this can't be free. We have most of the cost taken care of, but we still need $2394 by May 1.

For those of you that don't know, the People to People movement was established in 1956 by President Dwight Eisenhower. He believed that direct interaction between ordinary citizens around the world would promote world peace and cultural understanding. The ambassador program has served as a global education provider and has provided opportunities for bridging cultural and political borders for over 40 years. For more information on People to People, click here.

Anyway, I was one of the lucky 40 or so students accepted for this year's trip and I am in need of money. So if anybody would like to donate to my cause, I will put up a list of what you can get depending on how much you donate. At the end of each week or two I'll post how closer we are to the goal of $2394.

That's all for now. Come back tomorrow; I'll probably have something more interesting to ramble on about.

First Post

Hello world and all who inhabit it. I seriously have no idea what to say here, so I'm going to wing it.

I'm Meagan Chesser, sophomore and first-time blogger. I was born in Alaska but have been to just about every other climate there is in the US and now I'm here in Maryland. My dad's military, which explains the moving, so here's a brief shout-out to the troops fighting right now. What else?...

I'm making this blog because I need to raise some money for a trip this summer, but more on that next post. I love writing, art, and taking pictures of my cats, so don't be surprised if I suddenly upload a picture for no reason. I'll probably post some of my projects from my Photo and Digital class too-they usually turn out pretty good. I'm also an anime and manga fan(otaku for you Japanese buffs) and have gotten into writing fanfiction, which can be found here. Every now and then I'll probably post a recommendation for an anime or book that I love, so look out for those.

I think that'll be all for now, cause I am dead tired with a headache and I have school tomorrow. Wish me luck, cause I'm going to need it for tomorrow.
