The Bioneers Conference (Grinnell, Iowa) was life changing and I've absolutely positively decided to a) be an environmental studies minor, b) that we should stop eating shrimp [see http://www.shrimpsuck.org], c) that we need to make a lot of changes to our lifestyle (both at school and at home), c) that anything is possible, just make some connections and set some goals, d) florescent lights are cool, e) living locally is where it's at, f) camping is beautiful and there are a lot more stars than I thought there ever were, g) it is our responsibility to take care if the earth, h) it is time to take this responsibility under our wing and harness our creative senses to makes this place we live in sustainable and renewable. I could seriously go on and on and on for hours, but there's too much to type.
Basically, I want to do so much. I want to go to New Orleans and help with the relief and rebuilding efforts. I want to go to the Bronx and "Green The Ghetto". I want to stop eating meat (including fish, shrimp is the worst you could do, and tuna). I want to make recycled art. I want to make our campus more sustainable. I want to thelp run K.A.R.E.S. next year. I want to stop buying so much. I want to eat mainly organic and as locally as I can if at all possible.
I want a lot.
Halloween (on a different note) was lovely (sort of) and in case you didn't see it:
I was a Tamagotchi and it was the cutest most precious costume in the world!!!!
I went to Jens Lekman on Friday night at The Logan Square auditorium and he played every song I wanted to hear and more and we were dancing and he was in this white robe and his girls were perfect and cute in all their Swedish cuteness. Mexican with Maud after the show was fabulous, I'm not sorry I didn't tip though. I love kareoke in Spanish and I love singing along.
Yesterday I went to The MCA with Brian and it was beautiful. Even the weird sex inspired performance art was good. We had a really enjoyable time, and I'm really happy that he picked for us to go to the MCA and then get yummy thai food after. It's like every time the two of us hang out it's absolutely perfect and spontaneous and lovely. How do we do it?!
Anything else? I had Chinese food today and I bought a bamboo plant to put next to my orchids (Sugar Dumplin', and Muffin Baby).
Time to drive back to school.
I love life.
New house is perfect.
