Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle: Ways to Go Green on Your Own

Even when I was younger and global warming and the environment seemed to be a much more distant problem, I was still constantly told by adults to “go green” and “reduce, reuse, and recycle.” As a kid, my idea of using the three R’s was making a guitar out of the tissue box my mom…

Make the Most of Your Mondays

Garfield famously hates Mondays. If you go to the clothing section of almost any store you’re bound to find shirts that boast how much they hate Mondays. The Cure permanently dubbed Mondays as blue in “Friday I’m in Love.” No matter where you look at it, the world seems to collectively hate Mondays. I’m no…

I didn’t fit in with the adults because I was too young to partake in their conversations. The kids were all younger than me; elementary school or…

Get Org-anized

“I’m going to a meeting. And then another one after that.” “Didn’t you just have a meeting?” “Yeah, but I have more. And another one tomorrow.” This is kind of how it goes for me. Being a member of four organizations, it’s not uncommon for me to have three meetings in a week. One night…
