I am a work at home mom of two. I freelance for the local newspaper and try to mix an American lifestyle with green choices— which can be easy and hard with two kids.
A little more of what’s under the surface?
About me.. about me.. well at the end of day I think I’m probably a pretty cool chick. I’m just always so damn passionate about everything.
I left the country after highschool despite being accepted to college because I felt that if I truly believed in the oneness of humanity I should live in another culture and country and pull away from my home.
Ahh… the oneness of humanity? What’s that? Maybe I’m not so cool after all. Maybe I’m a square. But yes, I believe strongly that we are all the same at the core of things and as such should treat each other that way. So I spent my highschool years screaming about sexism or racism or classism or religious prejudice.
So I went to Grenada… had a great time (actually it was very, very hard), tutored some kids, met alot of friends, incidentally met the man I would marry.
he followed me back to the States after we were apart for almost a year.
I decided, after 3 years of college to become a social worker, that I had alot of great things to say, but that no one wanted to listen to me anymore. People get tired of someone who is so serious all the time, don’t they?
So I became a journalist and now I’m writing about all those world-encompassing issues that affect people’s lives.
And in the process I had a kid. Boy did that open up a new can of worms for me to pour all my passion in. It just spills out of me whenever I begin to care about something.
Now I’m always screaming about breastfeeding, shady formula companies and what they’ve done to Americas children, co-sleeping and natural birth.
What passion will strike me next? I think I’ve got enough injustices to work on for a few years.
Maybe I’m not your average bear. I don’t know.
