megan in madison

This is my chronicle of being awesome in Madison, Wisconsin Zone 5a. My name's Megan. Often, funny things happen to me in Wisconsin.

I like my garden(s). I really like social media, the Internet and my road bike. And I never want to get diabetes.

Read more about me.

(Do I have to say this? Views here are mine alone.)

I'm going to turn 30 in 2015 so I only have two years to complete my 30 Under 30. This is what started it all.

You can also read about my real life in higher education, social media and general nerdery here.

"They are kind of at the heart of a few things about the suburbs," she says. "People out here have a lot of opinions, and people obsess about their lawns. The funny thing that happens is that it’s like a bumper sticker on your house. You’re branding yourself with an opinion or a philosophy. It’s like wearing a very loud T-shirt that says what you believe."
