My name is Meg. It has been quite a while since I have posted on this here blog. I have been serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for 18 months in Nebraska and Iowa. I returned home in January and am just now getting back into the blog world.
Because of the change that has taken place in who am I and what I have learned about myself from being away from the "world" for 18 months, I figured I could re-vamp the style of the blog. So welcome to the new name and new layout. Yay!
When I was little, my parents owned a computer store not too far from the house I grew up in. My whole family has been very computer savvy, and even with the years that have passed since selling the store, that hasn't changed. I would love the days that would be spent at the store after pre-school & kindergarten. My brother would pick me up, and take me to the little strip mall where the store lived and I would spend hours playing my Barbie PC games, and watching my brothers tackle new enemies on StarCraft. My oldest brother ran the store quite often, and I still remember the chuckles that would come from both of us, when so many of our customers would think I was his daughter.
All those that worked there had custom green polo shirts with fuchsia collars and embroidered lettering that said "MICRO-BITS", stating clearly to all that walked in our Micro-bit store, that they were there to serve and help them. I was little, I sure didn't know much to answer questions, but even still, I had my own little polo that had "MEG-A-BIT" embroidered right under the company logo.
It was a nick name. One that I absolutely loved and bragged to tell people about, even though I didn't quite understand all the humor and irony of it. I just knew my family was proud or their cleverness, and I loved to be proud with them.
The megabit is a multiple of the unit bit for digital information. The prefix mega is defined in the International System of Units as a multiplier of 106 (1 million), and therefore
- 1 megabit = 106bits = 1000000bits
Annnnnyway.... I'm back, and more ready to write and discover life than ever before. Here we go!!!!!
