For the Love of Beet Juice

by Megan M. on March 26, 2009 · View Comments (Blog) |

I was making a video where I explained how I’d just taken a very nice nap and had driven two hours from Austin to College Station and how we’d left two hours late and I was pretty freaking tired when we got here but I had some food and juice and slept and felt better [...]


Poverty and Purpose

I feel insanely passionate about making people understand their options—their talents, their strengths, their innate holy-cow-ness—but I mostly think in terms of people who are living the same kind of life I am.

You’re about to witness a late night rant. Let’s see how coherent it turns out, shall we? I’ve actually been going about this all the wrong way.
