2014 Great American Clean-Up

Last year for the Great American Clean-Up I did a beach clean-up. This year, I built a playground.
The city of Lake Worth got together with Highland Elementary and some other nice folks to put in a new playground behind a new fitness park! Americorps volunteers came out and we all found a huge pile of mulch and plastic barrier pieces next to a professionally constructed plastic and metal junglegym. We set up the plastic barrier and each took a turn sledgehammering in one of the stakes. It was fun to see everyone cheer each other on! Then came the hard work... the shoveling and hauling of mulch. For two and a half hours we shoveled and hauled. My partner was a young girl who worked harder than a lot of the adult volunteers. I never got her name, but she's basically my hero. :)

2004-2014 Goals

I found a "Goals" page from New Years 2004. As I write this, that day was ten years, four months, and 26 days ago. It's interesting to see how goals change over time. Or, in this case, how they don't.

My goals in life (circa Jan01-2004):
Get a Biology degree. Get a teaching degree (post-secondary). Learn to fire a handgun. Get back into shape. Running, hang, crunches. Spend some weekends with friends. Sleep a regular schedule. Smile.

In May 2014 I graduate with a Bachelors of Science in Biology Education: a teaching degree specializing in Biology. Check. 
In 2007 I did relearn how to fire a handgun.  Check.

Review: Mogworld

Mogworld by Yahtzee Croshaw

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love it. I love everything about it. I love the characters, the story progression, the "what's really going on", the ending, the fact that the author read it, the nods and winks, even the total ripoff of a cover image that made me get it in the first place. Color it adored.
