I write a lot about the problems of what I will refer to as "social sustainability" - rather the conversations that surround sustainability, green living, zero-waste and all that it entails. I've mentioned it a little bit here on my blog and I regularly, like a broken record, preach about it to the few followers … Continue reading Low Impact Check-in
Because I'm realizing I'm not making much headway for 100 posts in one year - we're like halfway through the year and I've only gotten 10% in - , I've decided to talk about a not so favorite quality of mine. Now, I should probably do another 10 things I like about me in honor … Continue reading 12: l. o. l.
I’ve written this letter before. It was one of those days (out of many) you’d gone missing and I couldn’t find you. I was convinced you were never coming back. But as always, you did. Three days later and covered in mud. I always thought that when you left me it would be one of … Continue reading 10: Heya BooBoo
I've lived near the Micronesia Mall my entire life. This meant that I am always a less than two minute drive to the nearest grocery store. I've always liked shopping at night, since high school. Sometimes, I'd go with a friend or my sister to the store if I really wanted something in the middle … Continue reading 9: History
So I'm updating this for the first time in a while and also for the first time in the New Year. I originally intended to post on Christmas Eve but just as I began to ramble about how my sisters were later for dinner, they showed up and we ate dinner. The days that followed … Continue reading 32: A New Philosophy on the New Year
CLICK for the first part, if you missed it. A recurring theme in my life is that the kids weigh very heavily on it. This kind of goes for all of my sisters (and not just the actual mother, haha). That year in Texas pretty much killed me being without the big one and as … Continue reading 31: Kids are weird pt. 2
Dear nugget, I don't know if it's just the mood I'm in or seeing your Christmas performance or the holiday season coming in, but I feel pretty grateful. For a lot of things but there's something very special about you. I don't know when or how we bonded (probably has to do with you always … Continue reading 30: A letter to a munchkin
My carpal tunnel is the explanation for the delayed posts and the breaks this past week. As one might imagine, it's difficult to get through a post when your hands are in pain. I've been trying to reserve using my hands for necessities or resting them altogether. It's difficult especially when you have so much … Continue reading 29: My hands have been hurting
And I don't mean in the "kids do weird things" way. I mean, obviously kids do weird things. Adults do weird things too....but I'm talking about how kids are weird in the way that they eventually become non-kids....which is a roundabout way of saying that it's weird watching kids grow up. Take my mini, for … Continue reading Day 24: Kids are weird
I wrote for myself, today. Finally. It's bittersweet, however. It was out of frustration but it's certainly a start. I started writing out of frustration so I suppose it makes sense to pick it up out of frustration. I'm sure I've mentioned it somewhere on this blog already but most people don't quite believe it … Continue reading Day 22: I did it.
