I'm leaving my apartment to a stranger on Tuesday while I'm on the road for work for two months. This forced me to reorganize and make room for the new dweller. Nothing could have made me happier than to have something to obsess about prior to departure AND the apartment is sooo neat and clean! Makes me want to burn/get rid of anything extra. September will be a good time for that. I made no rash decisions this time.

So, on the road! Here we go!

Rock out, y'all!

Found Kate via Hot Child in the City. Kate directed me to this whale video that is completely amazing. It was taken by her friend Adam who was working in Antarctica at the time. I love whales. I hope to see one up close one day.

Kate also turned me onto this shoe from JCrew. Not practical for work, so not in the budget, but it did get me to these t-shirts that are on sale and I'm considering making some of them mine.

Oh, and she's from Minnesota, so there's no shock that I like her style :)

There's so much more, but I need to get on my hog and meet Alice and Mark for pizza. They're moving to Austin and I'm going to miss them a lot.

She & Him

I think I might come back

Not sure if anyone is still out there...I don't know what I'd say that I don't say on Facebook...Starting with this!

It's been a very long time

And I don't have much to say, so I'll just post this, what is quickly becoming a favorite song of mine...

Not sure I can see myself blogging again regularly (it's been a while since it's been regular). I do get around the interweb a lot, though. What I really want is a blogroll on my Facebook page.

Scar Jo and Pete Yorn "Relator"

Let's see if that works...

Marilyn Carlson Nelson SF Commonwealth Speech

This speech is fabulous about leadership and, my favorite, day to day decisions to make your and others' lives better.

Reshaping How We Think About Space, Rethinking What I "Need"

So...I've been thinking a TON about what's next. I have no idea.

I know that I'd like to own a home, I know that I want to have a job I love (don't really care where), I know that I love not being in debt. So, how to live within my means?

Tiny homes?
I could be into that. In a few hours go look at this site, Tumbleweed Homes, a guy who specialized in small homes.

I could be into this idea. After all, I loved being car-free in New York.

It's clear that it's time that we rethink how we live. I'm ready.

Heather Armstrong and I Agree About A Bunch of Stuff

But, this, especially rings true.

I learned about charity and giving to the things that matter to me from my mom and my dad. From NPR to taxes, I'm proud and glad to share my money and time as a demonstration of what I love and for the betterment of society.

I cannot WAIT to have people in public office who spend my money the way I would spend it if I were in their shoes. I also can't wait to have more money, someday, hopefully, to contribute in ways that matter in a larger way.

I do not think this makes me noble or righteous, I think this outlook means I've been incredibly incredibly lucky. I know I have been, and may it be that way for countless others in the future that's before us and feels really uncertain and scary right now.

I also have a solid belief in karma. You get what you give. Sometimes not immediately (as I'm reminded daily these days), but sooner or later. It is always advisable to remain positive, loving and truthful.

My favorite prayer from summer camp:

Happiness runs in a circular motion
Love is a little boat upon the sea
Everything is a part of everything anyway
You can be happy if you let yourself be
