Okay, so I know we could all be better, I am sure I do a million things every day that are messing up our planet. We are all guilty, and often little changes in our daily routines is all it takes to lessen your impact on the Earth. Here is a little list of things I found online of easy ways to go green. 29/365 #1 Save energy to save money. * Set your thermostat a few degrees lower in the winter and a few degrees higher in the summer to save on heating and cooling costs. * Install compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) when your older incandescent bulbs burn out. * Unplug appliances when you're not using them. Or, use a power strip that senses when appliances are off and cuts energy use. * Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible. As much as 85 percent of the energy used to machine-wash clothes goes to heating the water. * Use a drying rack or clothesline to save the energy otherwise used during machine drying. If you must use a dryer, consider adding dryer balls to cut drying time. #2 Save water to save money. * Take shorter showers to reduce water use. This will lower your water and heating bills too. * Install a low-flow showerhead. They don't cost much, and the water and energy savings can quickly pay back your investment. * Make sure you have a faucet aerator on each faucet. These inexpensive appliances conserve heat and water, while keeping water pressure high. * Plant drought-tolerant native plants in your garden. Many plants need minimal watering. Find out which occur naturally in your area. #3 Less gas = more money (and better health!). * Walk or bike to work. This saves on gas and parking costs while improving your cardiovascular health and reducing your risk of obesity. * Consider telecommuting if you live far from your work. Or move closer. Even if this means paying more rent, it could save you money in the long term. * Lobby your local government to increase spending on sidewalks and bike lanes. With little cost, these improvements can pay huge dividends in bettering your health and reducing traffic. #4 Eat smart. * If you eat meat, add one meatless meal a week. Meat costs a lot at the store-and it's even more expensive when you consider the related environmental and health costs. * Buy locally raised, humane, and organic meat, eggs, and dairy whenever you can. Purchasing from local farmers keeps money in the local economy. * Watch videos about why local food and sustainable seafood are so great. * Whatever your diet, eat low on the food chain]. This is especially true for seafood. #5 Skip the bottled water. * Use a water filter to purify tap water instead of buying bottled water. Not only is bottled water expensive, but it generates large amounts of container waste. * Bring a reusable water bottle, preferably aluminum rather than plastic, with you when traveling or at work. #6 Think before you buy. * Go online to find new or gently used secondhand products. Whether you've just moved or are looking to redecorate, consider a service like craigslist or FreeSharing to track down furniture, appliances, and other items cheaply or for free. * Check out garage sales, thrift stores, and consignment shops for clothing and other everyday items. * When making purchases, make sure you know what's Good Stufft; and what isn't. * Watch a video about what happens when you buy things. Your purchases have a real impact, for better or worse. #7 Borrow instead of buying. * Borrow from libraries instead of buying personal books and movies. This saves money, not to mention the ink and paper that goes into printing new books. * Share power tools and other appliances. Get to know your neighbors while cutting down on the number of things cluttering your closet or garage. #8 Buy smart. * Buy in bulk. Purchasing food from bulk bins can save money and packaging. * Wear clothes that don't need to be dry-cleaned. This saves money and cuts down on toxic chemical use. * Invest in high-quality, long-lasting products. You might pay more now, but you'll be happy when you don't have to replace items as frequently (and this means less waste!). #9 Keep electronics out of the trash. * Keep your cell phones, computers, and other electronics as long as possible. * Donate or recycle them responsibly when the time comes. E-waste contains mercury and other toxics and is a growing environmental problem. * Recycle your cell phone. * Ask your local government to set up an electronics recycling and hazardous waste collection event. #10 Make your own cleaning supplies. * The big secret: you can make very effective, non-toxic cleaning products whenever you need them. All you need are a few simple ingredients like baking soda, vinegar, l

Well, the summer season at work has officially come to an end. Time for my Summer Summary! First of all, now that I'm back to working part-time, I'm sure I'll get back on Flickr more regularly. I looked through my archives the other day, and it turns out I only posted four pictures in August. Part of me sees this as a problem, because I haven't been keeping up...keeping up with my posting, and keeping up with the goings-on in your lives...but the other part of me sees this as a reflection of how much fun I was having this summer. I was busy last summer, too, but this summer was just...better! I was out doing stuff after work almost every day since April, and this much socializing was unprecedented. It got to the point where, on days when I didn't have stuff to do after work, I was sitting at my apartment feeling like a bum! For those of you who met me this year, and don't know my history, allow me to explain: In my younger years, I didn't have a lot of friends-who-I'd-hang-out-with-outside-of-school. When I wasn't in school, I spent a lot of time by myself. I spent a lot of the winter of 2011 sitting around on the computer, using Wikipedia, Facebook, and Flickr, watching episodes of Mayday, and eating peanut butter, jam, cheese, French dressing, and pickle sandwiches. I spent the rest of my time looking for jobs online and taking pictures of planes and subway stations. So, to be going out with different people almost every day for the past five months is such a novel experience for me...and it's great! I met a bunch of awesome people this summer (I already wrote a similar bit like this on Facebook last week). People like GillyFace, Alicia, Skyler, and Nicole (among others!) While I didn't do anything especially wild this summer, I did a bunch of fun things with people whose company I valued, and at the end of the day, I'm happy with that! I don't need to write down all my feelings on the Internet, but it's in my head, and I won't forget! I started the summer, or ended the spring, with a trip to Chicago. It was pretty cool; the weather was warming up and I took a ton of pictures...which I've been itching to post! It's definitely a city I'd like to go back to. I got into a car accident at the end of that week. Thankfully no one was hurt and the damage wasn't too bad. The next week, a new girl showed up at work. Her name was Alicia and I wasn't sure what to think about her initially. By the end of the summer, I was chatting with her every day, and we hung out outside of work several times, too. She became a big part of my summer, and that's all I need to say! I met GillyFace in May, and we spent some time in her neck of the woods. Haha. That's a little joke. We went planespotting in June, and I feel like I introduced her to a new passion...notice how many times she's posted planespotting pics of her own since then! Hahaha. However, I only picked up my camera 20 times between May 1st and September 5th... However...I attribute that to taking tons of pics over the winter, and doing so much socializing this summer! Im sure (I hope) I'll get back into it now that it's fall! I got an iPhone in June…saying goodbye to my old tank, the Razr, and saying hello to things like “using the Internet on my phone”, “listening to songs on my phone”, and “not having to pay 20 cents per text message”. Also in June, some scumbag stole my sunglasses and work-issued coat while I was working 100 feet away…so I had to drop a few bills on a new pair of prescription sunglasses. Granted, I like my new SGs, but I shouldn’t have to pay so much just because biology cursed me with nearsighted eyes! I did karaoke for the first time in June, for Jenn's birthday. I rapped "The Real Slim Shady" with Alex. I went out again with some zoo buddies in August, but most of them had to leave before it was my turn, so me and Alicia (the last two remaining) left. However, we plan on trying again in December! I went to see the Tragically Hip with my brother and dad at Downsview on Canada Day, which was pretty cool! Weezer were also very good, although I didn't like Broken Social Scene. I found time to hang out with Asem in July, going to our usual hangout, hahaha. I went to the Dance Cave one night with the Savanna crew, which was pretty decent. Got drunk, got puked on, haha. Memorable for sure! I tried Vietnamese food for the first time when I was out with Alicia in August. Went to Cora-Lynn’s party a few days later. Played a show at the Opera House with my band, for the first time in 17 months. The show started out shitty, what with the security staff being assholes...they completely ruined our we won't be playing at the Opera House again until we have a rider that specifies that we, the performers, have a right to bring beverages to the venue to hydrate ourselves while playin
