Less Mature Megan

Shorter Megan: Being a grown-up is boring. Let's talk about university. Again.

Can you name anyone who writes more about their high school and college experiences than Megan? I think the reason for that is that she peaked around that time. Admittedly she has some pretty fucking good credentials, yet she hasn't done anything with them. I remember her writing about how she was out of work for over a year at one point. Then she got an administrative job after 9-11. But with her education--prep school, Penn, then U of C--she should be a lot farther along in life. During the tough times I think she took a great deal of comfort from what she achieved diploma-wise, given that she was such a failure real world-wise.

I think she just likes to brag about her degrees a lot to prop up her image as some sort of intellectual. She's a complete poser otherwise.

Did you see what she said about Caroline Kennedy?

"Kennedy was given much and did . . . not alot. She never did anything big enough to risk failure. This is the culmination of a career spent retreating from the arena before she could be marred by dust and sweat and blood, much less error."

Megan's so funny.

Ivy League degrees--and she spells it "alot."

Caroline Kennedy has done "not alot [sic]"?

Has Megan ever seen this woman's resume? You've got to be kidding me. Kennedy's an attorney, an author, a journalist, an editor and sits on the boards of countless non-profits. I thought of suggesting comparing her accomplishments to Megan's, but then I started laughing too hard.

I'm going to go out on a limb an guess that Caroline Kennedy's every move has been noticed in Megan's Irish-Catholic world, even if it's just negative notice. Kennedy did not spend her life whoring for attention, so she's a looooooser.
