1. The flower of the week is goldenrod. It is EVERYWHERE around here!
2. I cleaned up today (more than usual) and unpacked some figurines that W got me for my birthday:
They're supposed to be for kids, but I just think they're cute! <3
3. School is REALLY busy and kind of frustrating. It's hard for me to read things that I don't like/don't agree with, how I got this far in the environmental field I don't know. But, this really made me spit out my coffee today:
"... is becoming increasingly central to religion, science, medicine, literature, the arts and women."
Really? Why women and not men? Are women more eco-contientious? This just seems sexist to me! It's from Ch. 1 of Paul Hawken's "Ecology of Commerce." I'm going to refrain from critiquing this gem for the sake of my future career.
4. Sometimes I wonder if I'm doing the things I'm supposed to - I guess the mystical-sounding word would be "on the path of my destiny." If I am on the right path, I'm a little peeved that that path has led me to live in my boyfriend's run-down college apartment with three other people I barely know and who seem to have a problem with the fact I keep fresh veg in the crisper.
