Girl, Interrupted by Conundra
Girl, Interrupted
One of the first photos Perry ever took of me.

I was on the verge of turning 22, twenty pounds heavier, and healthier than a legion of horses.
Six months later, everything changed
Looking back at that body, free of port scars and PICC line scars and the damage of long-term illness, feels like I'm remembering a moment from someone else's life.

Either way, I am she
and she is me.

Photographer: PerryGallagher
Model: myself
Date taken: March 2009

I solemnly swear (that I am up to no good)
The most recent and halfway decent photo I've got, circa late May.

A little over a year ago, I sacrificed my hair to our local St. Baldrick's charity. Ten inches of red hair for $1027 seems like a more than fair trade to me.

"Here's a sigh to those who love me
and a smile to those who hate
and, whatever sky's above me
here's a heart for every fate"

My name is Megan, but I only ever hear it in formal situations or when I'm in trouble. I'm Meggy to most, Meg to some, and Meggles or Meggiweg to a very brave few.

I'm a tattooed bookworm, a collector of memories, a penny-picker-upper, an aspiring scientist, an incorrigible goof, an adventurer, a wanderer, a tea addict, and a dreamer. Mine is a life lived for joy and adventures, tempered with enough reason and foresight to keep me from getting into too much trouble.
I love with all my heart, laugh with all the breath in my body, and explore the world with the curiosity and energy of a five-year-old. Life is simply too short to live any other way.

I've been modeling off-and-on for nearly half a decade.
I'm not a fan of photoshopped illusions and artificial beauty.

In a world obsessed with perfection, I'm a flesh-and-blood creature made of asymmetries and quirks and oddities and flaws.

I make no apologies for it
I hide none of it
and what you see here is what you get.

I love what I do. I hope you will, too.

Current Residence: Southeast Alaska
Favourite genre of music: classic rock, blues, rock, metal, soul, industrial, all things bad 80s + 90s
Skin of choice: someone else's
Personal Quote: "and whatever sky's above me, here's a heart for every fate"
"Don't let someone steal your tenderness.
Don't allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart.
Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to be affected by things.  Whether it's a song,
a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all -
look around you.  All of this is for you.  
Take it and have gratitude.
Give it and feel love."
- Zooey Deschanel

Beautiful words from a beautiful heart.

Love your profile Meg!  While I don't have the time to comment on all your images, suffice to say, they're all great!  I don't know you, but I love you as a person, and I think you have a body to match your beautiful soul!  Keep up the great work!  Michael

You once paid me an awesome compliment, you mentioned something that you liked my self-photography for taking chances as a not so skinny guy. It meant a lot when you have the compliment.
