It’s been about 6 months and I think I’m ready to come back. I’m still working 2 jobs, so I won’t post as often as I was before. I’ve been reading pretty exciting things that I can’t wait to share. First, I’ll do a little summary of some things I’ve done over the last 1/2 a year.
I bought a refurbished iPod touch. I love it! I use it more as a pda than a music device. I keep my calendar on it, notes, weather, contacts, etc. It does maps like a gps, and I can check my email without having to plug in and turn on the computer. So, it saves a little energy. To charge it, I got a Solio. The Solio is great for travel, but I’d probably wait for this power stick that supposedly charges in 10 minutes. The only thing I don’t like about the iPod is that the battery is not replaceable (which I didn’t know until after I bought it). Sure, I can send the iPod to Apple and they’ll send me another iPod. That’s not the point. I want a battery I can replace.
I’ve traveled a bit since I last wrote. More flight cancellations. I always get cancelled. It’s starting to become a joke. Planning another trip this summer. It’s unfortunate that travel has such an impact on the environment, but I love history and learning about the world, so I will continue to travel. My favorite mode of transportation is trains! Trains!
Yes, I’m still trying to buy nothing new. It’s tough, and I’m not as strict as I could be. I am pretty strict about not buying things that are made in China. I watched “What would Jesus buy” and it reinforced my ideals about buying from countries that have a more positive human rights record.
My new favorite show is Chuck. That’s irrelevant, but it’s a tech-geek spy show and I just love it.
I will also resurrect Recipe Fridays, with vegetarian (low-impact) recipes that I find online.
Ok. That’s all you’ll hear about me. I just wanted to give a little recap. Now, back to the good ideas!
