Numero Uno.

Hey there. :]
Well, let me just start out by telling you a little about myself, and why I've decided to embark on this blogging adventure.

About me:
My name is Megan, and I am nobody. Right now. I am 24 years old and just started school (first semester, Freshman year) to become a Registered Dietetic Technician. I will graduate in a couple of years with my Associates of Applied Science, and I plan on continuing my undergrad work at a 4 year university to become a Registered Dietitian. The reason I'm breaking it up like I am is because I am impatient, and unhappy in my current job situation. (I'm a server in a restaurant, which doesn't really mesh well with the fact that I'm wanting to tell people how to eat healthy and the most popular thing on the menu is fried and covered in sugary sauce. Sheesh) So, I hope to find a different job in a couple of years, before continuing my move up the ranks.

About the blog:
Basically.. I want to share what I know, I want to write about my life, I want to interact with other health nuts and foodies. :) Also, I'm hoping this blog will be able to help me out as I get through school. I'll be able to keep track of things I am learning, and one of the best ways for me to remember something is to write it down, or tell someone else. I'm killing two birds with one blog, here.

As far as the name I chose? I eat a plant based diet.. sometimes seafood.. and very very rarely maybe a piece of chicken or something. So, I am not a strict vegan/vegetarian in least bit. I do feel awful about how animals are treated and I think we have no right to be eating them.. but I chose my eating habits as a way to be healthy, not for my own moral reasons. Also... I talk a lot, and sometimes over explain things, as you can probably tell from this very first post. haha. So I thought the name was a good fit. :)

As far as long-term blog goals, I'm also unsure at the moment. I hope that this is something I will be able to keep with me all the way through school and into my career and beyond. It would be nice for this to somehow take off, and bring fulfillment. But either way, I just want to share what I know, and hopefully at least one person will learn something from me, and I'll know that I was able to help them be just a little bit healthier. That is my ultimate goal.

Thank you for reading, and please enjoy! :]
