As an only child raised in a town of less than 8,000 people and without a Starbucks in sight, Meghan Rienks has always been pretty good at entertaining herself.
Then one day-cue the dramatic voiceover-her life changed forever. On June 12th, 2010, Meghan was diagnosed with mononucleosis.
Mono is basically just a really bad case of the flu, right?
Wrong. To a party crazed sixteen-year-old, mono is social suicide.
More than anything, it's just plain boring. So, Meghan opened up her MacBook and recorded her first YouTube video.
Since then, Meghan has shared the ups and downs of her life with the internet, documenting her teenage years for the whole world to see. Now that she's (mostly) through her awkward stage, Meghan's here to tell you that it gets better.
Despite what you've been told, your problems are not unique, your struggles have taken form in everybody else's life too, and somebody else has felt the way you feel right at this very moment. You're not special. But you're also not alone on the bumpy road to adulthood.
