Will You Accept This Rose?

You guys, it has been a fucking busy spring and summer. I have barely had enough time to breathe, let alone write! But I have been missing it, and all of you wonderful people who follow my adventures. Summer is my very favorite time of the year by far, but man, I do feel likeContinue reading “Will You Accept This Rose?”

Full Steam Ahead

Now, I know that many of you are probably not resolutions people, especially at this time of the year, when your New Year’s resolutions may or may not have fallen by the wayside.

Goodwill to the People!

The Good, The Bad and the Lessons From Both

I know, I know. I’ve been slacking. But to be fair, I’ve had quite a hectic month! Some of it was good, some of it was bad, but regardless, I kept moving forward. The Good Let’s start with the good. For the first time in two years, I ran a 5K! For all you runnersContinue reading “The Good, The Bad and the Lessons From Both”

Sitting Serenely in Silence: Learning About Sustainable Urban Agriculture

The first day of my sustainable urban agriculture class at the University of the District of Columbia, I climbed the stairs from the metro, disoriented and feeling nervous about finding the correct building and the correct classroom and being on time to class.
