Megan: The Basics

Me at Senior Prom

Me at Senior Prom

Hey there!  I’m Megan Murray, a Junior at Rutgers.  I am a Computer Science Major and a Technical Writing minor.  Long story short, I pretty much live on my computer.  While of course no one likes stereotypes, I suppose I’m not really breaking any molds here:  I’m kind of a dork, I love to play video games, I sleep until 1pm on weekends, I’ve watched my share of anime, when I put on makeup I don’t really know what i’m doing, and I’ve avoided numerous social obligations just so I could just sit around on my computer.

As for video games, I mostly PC game, online playing League of Legends, World of Warcraft, and recently, Final Fantasy XIV.  Offline games I like are The Elder Scrolls (Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim) and well, who can resist the Sims?  I have also been playing Pokemon since Yellow and am eagerly awaiting the new X and Y games!  Other games I have spent way too much time playing include all the Smash Brothers, Harvest Moons, and Animal Crossing.  But enough about video games – there are more things I do with my life, right?

Besides being on the computer, I’m an avid baker.   I do like cooking, but why have regular, boring food when you could have dessert? I mean, come on now.  I prefer to make mini cakes when I’m just baking for fun, because really, a full size cake is pretty big when you want to make like seven cakes.  I am, however, not the biggest fan of cupcakes.  Naturally, I’ve gotten into making quite a few video game cakes.

In another class I took at Rutgers, Web Authoring, I created a website for some of the game baking I’ve done.  It’s a really cheesy website, as the professor was insistent on the theme being extremely prevalent, but it does its job.  I want to revamp / finish the website, but keep putting it off.

Besides gaming and baking, I also love horses!  I prefer to ride english, but western is pretty comfy.  I am going to be joining the Rutgers Equestrian Team for the first time this year.  I have not competed since I was 13, but hopefully I can get back in the swing of things!  Riding a horse is kinda like riding a bike, you don’t forget.  You just get sore.  Just before the semester started my family went to Aruba, and I was able to gallop on a horse for the first time!  It really is the best feeling in the world.

That’s enough about me for now, I look forward to reading some interesting blogs from all of you!  😀
