and in case you were wondering
I have yet to start my running training. Oopsie. But I will share all when I do!
random thought of the day...
I wish the lamp by my computer could give me a nice, all over tan. I’d be brown just with the time I spent here last night. Doing what exactly? All will be revieled soon enough!
megan and craig: on where chicken comes from.
T.Goat: do you know how the average food chicken lives?
MeganTeB: nope do you?
T.Goat: dad used to drive chicken trucks
MeganTeB: feel like sharing?
T.Goat: the chicken you buy in the store is only 6 weeks old
T.Goat: normal chickens take a couple months to get to full size, but people want tender chicken, and old chickens arnt tender
T.Goat: so they live with a couple thousand other chickens in a barn, eatting steroids and drinking a ton of water
T.Goat: near the end, they can barely walk, because they grew so fast that they outgrew their muscles and skeletons
T.Goat: then the chicken catchers come in. they get paid by the chicken/crate/truck load, so they dont give a shit how the chickens are treated, and the faster they finish, the more money they make
T.Goat: so they grab 4-5 chickens per hand at a time, and throw them into plastic crates about a foot high, sometimes with wings/feet sticking out, and those crates get stacked on the back of a semi
T.Goat: which then drives to a processing factory where all that wonderful slaughterhouse stuff happens
T.Goat: as quickly as possible, because people want cheap, and time is money, so it's done by machine.
T.Goat: the chicken you see in the store never saw the sun or walked on grass.
MeganTeB: i want spagetti
T.Goat: with meatballs?
MeganTeB: i will use my tears as sauce
MeganTeB: no! course not
T.Goat: well, people want tender and cheap. and thats what you get
MeganTeB: how can you know that and still eat chicken?
T.Goat: i dont really eat that much chicken
T.Goat: for lots of people, chicken comes from the store. they dont think about it as an actual animal

fun fact #278: i'm kind of a model
Hahahahaha technically true but not how you think I’m sure. This weekend is the Vancouver ABA Hairshow of which I model for! Anyway it has been a blast, has given me a new Tumblr photo (FINALLY) and a new do! I’m actually being cut twice which is interesting. Anyway check out my Facebook photos of the show. I got some sweet photos of the event, the show and some behind the scenes!...
maybe i should call this my running blog?
I didn’t have much time for my run today so I just went for a jog on my old route to see how I’ve improved since starting my longer route. Turns out, quite a bit. I can now (happily) run my starting route continuously quite comfortably. I was pretty pumped on life when I got home. Next week I will start my 13-week running program (yikes) and I’m really looking forward to it....
train train train!
My Beginning Runner’s Handbook came in the mail today! I am super duper excited. I can’t wait to read it tomorrow and start soon! the beginging seems easy but smokemms the end seems almost impossible. I can’t wait until I can do the 30 minute runs. The training is only for thirteen weeks but once I get trained all up, I can just pro-run until the Sun Run! Right? :P Anyway,...

Went for my longest run today. Death? Kinda. Eating M&M’s before did not help my run. I also didn’t make it as far as I had hoped. Tomorrow I will hopefully. Though I am going to feel my run from today…I already do. But still, I am getting better. Yayy. Now a salad for dinner….not so yayy but summer is coming up and I want to loose the weight and look better. Its...
rereading some of my past blogs and well...look...
But I am a little sad to say I created a Twitter account today. I may have to do a school project on Twitter in like, eight weeks so I figured I better do my research and figure out what the hell happens on it. Am I a little disapointed in myself? Yes. But its research and I am not going to become obsessed or celebrity stalkerish. Hey, might do me well in the long run who knows? Oopsie.
and now, presenting...
Just did an update to my creative blog. Still not many posts but once term papers are done (and I can’t wait for that day) I will get back into everything! Running, drawing, painting, blogging, cooking etc. While we wait for that day (ever so patiently…I have a love/hate relationship with term papers what can I say), follow me on Twitter as I have been keeping up with it! @meganteb ...
