My name is Meaghan Shawnee Williams (née McClendon). I’m 23 years old and currently a student at Troy University studying Psychology and Counseling in my junior year. I hope to graduate with my bachelor’s degree next year and after that I’d like to transfer to Florida State University to their graduate program for my master’s degree and possibly my doctorate. This is the same spiel I give everyone, and it really tells you nothing about who I am, except that people’s behavior fascinates me and I love watching people interact. I’m a watcher and I observe. I like to do that. It also tells you I’m going to kind of be a ‘permanent student’, as I’ll have to be renewing my license every 3 years in order to practice counseling.
As far as who I am, well, that’s another matter entirely. I’m still in my 20’s, so that’s yet to be seen, isn’t it? I’m Native American, and that’s never going to change. I love being Muscogee Creek. I’m a Christian, but that doesn’t mean I’m perfect. I try to do the best I can and be kind to people. I hope to write novels. I hope that this blog will help me hone my writing skills and separate some things so I can write those novels. But who I am is still changing every day.
The site suggested to put here what others should expect from my blog, and I guess you could expect a lot of things. I hope to post uplifting things often, because so many times do we need to see that in such a discouraging world. I’ll also post often about being Native American. I’ll also have Christian posts, as it is my blog and I feel like posting my faith here. Since I’m pretty nerdy, I’m going to post a lot of nerdy things too, primarily Harry Potter-related. Oh, and there will be Disney. I hope people can find understanding here. Sometimes I’ll post about grief, as I am no stranger to it. I lost my dad nearly 4 years ago, and every day it still feels like yesterday. I know it can’t compare to other types of grief, but it’s the worst thing I’ve ever gone through. I also went through some pretty awful stuff in high school, and I’ll share that with you guys too. It’s something I need to let go of, and it’s just time. Maybe people will find solace in my words, and maybe they’ll find hope. Maybe we’ll all just find people that understand.
