Well, this is my first entry, and boy it has been a long day. I was fine until this afternoon when I was in the newsroom. See, I'm the news director of our campus paper and sometimes, I don't feel like I do a very good job at what I do. I know I'm an excellent writer, but sometimes being around the men in the newsroom makes me think twice about it.

Take today. I walk upstairs to get my clips packet to mail off to a potiental employer and the editor beckons one of my co-workers to go downstairs with him. A few minutes later, I go back downstairs to Xerox one of the clips and run into them. He goes, "Damn, Megan, we were trying to get away from you." Nice and subtle, huh? I understand that private conversations go on all the time, but hearing things like that just hurt. I'm now sitting here doubting myself as a capable journalist.

So, for comfort, I went and saw my boyfriend for a few minutes. He always has the ability to make me feel better. Next to my mom, he is my strongest supporter. The way he cares for me - it actually has me looking at bridal magazines for the first time in my life. Oh, I'm not ready for marriage by any means. But, I've always thought that was one of those things that would never happen to me. Perhaps maybe, it will one day.

The other big thing that happened was something scary. I was driving to go turn in my band uniform when I saw that a man had fallen off his bike and was lying in the road. I pulled up, rolled down my window, and asked if he was alright. By now, he had gotten up and said, "No, but let me shake your hand," and stuck it in my car window. I stared at his hand for a moment, cried out that I was late, and quickly drove off, my heart thundering in my chest. If he had grabbed me, I don't know what I would had done. But, I knew that if I saw the same thing again, I would still check and see if the person was okay. Not all people are like that. It's just a shame that some are. I'm just glad I had enough common sense to drive off and keep my cell phone to where I could dial 911.

So, I suppose that is it for now. I think I'm going to go write a little on the Rurouni Kenshin fanfic that I'm working on.
