Stuff about Me
I grew up in Rockville, MD, went to Bryn Mawr College (class of ’06), and am currently living in Waltham, MA with my delightful boyfriend and a large number of houseplants. I am in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at Simmons College, and am working in a local university library.
The impetus for this blog was my joining the “Riot for Austerity” (see blogroll and sidebar), a group dedicated to radically reducing their environmental impact. I am also joining a rotating list of challenges of smaller scope and length which I may or may not get around to posting on the sidebar. Because hey, challenges are fun and community-building.
This blog is rapidly becoming my only blog, and as such it will contain more tangential news about my life as well as stuff relating to sustainability. By “sustainability”, much of the time, I end up meaning “food”. Gardening and cooking is fun (for me, at least), empowering, and provides an endless source of minutiae to write about. I will occasionally write about political issues or more wide-angle philosophizing, but other people do that so much more eloquently and informedly that if you want that you should just go look at my blogroll and pick someone off of there to read. I have, however, been posting a steadily-increasing number of semi-coherent religious ramblings. Consider yourself warned.
