  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Improve a Bus Stop
    How can you advocate for transportation systems which minimize environmental impact while also meeting human needs?

    It took only 2 minutes to clean up a bus stop, and I've convinced the ultimate Frisbee organization to adopt and help me maintain a bus stop!

    I emailed our local grocery chain thanking them for the new bike rack, and attempting to advocate for food packaging options. It was a little scary!

    I had eggplant and beef lasagna for lunch, planning on having a vegetarian dinner, but then my husband made a delicious chicken and veggies stir fry! He is getting so good at cooking, but makes it harder for my goals. Also biked to ultimate Frisbee tonight!

    Trying to find a fee Halloween costume pieces to borrow so I don't need to order more cheap costumes from China. It's hard, I wish our team hadn't chosen robots

    I laid down to meditate and fell asleep on accident. Missed a nice evening and time to bike. Sometimes naps are helpful, today I woke up feeling like I missed out. I did make it to the Farmer's market and bought eggplant!
  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Needs Vs. Wants
    How is creativity necessary for practicing simplicity?

    Jenna Jarvis 10/03/2018 5:32 PM
    Getting creative with things you already have to make something new, and not throw it away. Reduce items in the home.
