My name is Margaret, and I am the author behind Merci Mile. This blog is written by a twenty-something attempting to figure out how to balance loving instagram and trying to love God at the same time. I am a first year medical student and, like most people coming fresh out of college, am still learning how to not get parking tickets and how to make friends outside of the sanctuary of a college dorm. I think it’s possible to learn how to do adult things well, while also trying to remain a child in the most important ways. This blog is about my failures and successes in doing that, and how stringing together all of these attempts makes for a life. It is about the little joys along the way that, when brought together, become light in our lives.
