hey look, i started a blog for rhymes with twee:
you know what? reading the above made me guilty. so guilty. there are a bunch of things i've been meaning to do on that list that i have put off. i feel like i am changing, growing. last night i watched year of the dog and i cried. most people who know me know that i'm pretty emotional anyways, but i feel so much like the character of peggy at the end of the movie. like, i might just hop on a bus to protest animal testing. i'm constantly reaching into the garbage to fish out other worker's cans that they've tossed into the trash when there is a recycling can for them literally (and i say that because i counted) 8 steps away. i try and succeed 4 or 5 times a week in bringing my lunch to work. i drink water and tea at work (i caved and drank a soda today) out of mugs or glasses here. i bring my stuff from home that i need to shred and i recycle it. the point is that i am slowly trying to get myself up to a place where i can do all of these things; use only reuseable pads, buy everything in bulk to use as little packaging as possible, bring my own tupperware to restaurants to box up leftovers, bring water with me everywhere in a mason jar, re-purpose clothing, etc. i know z sees it coming.
i don't really know what to do. i am turning into the hippie that i've always kind of been. i saw a girl throw a gum wrapper on the ground while her mother turned a blind eye. i wanted to say something to her, but whatever i say could get a negative reaction. you know what's worse than me trying to change but getting hung up a couple things? the people who don't see the need to change their ways, who don't see how messed up our world is becoming by the year, by the day, by the hour. we are killing this planet. i truly feel like 'children of men' is a very probable future for our world if we don't get to work.
ps. i got into depart-ment and i am really psyched about it. it's october 5, 6, and 7 at av-aerie (formerly open end gallery). i do hope you'll come.
