    I started biking to work or catching a ride. Using my feet to get around more.

    The house I live in was built in 1910. The walls are thick–almost 6 inches–and according to Ashley, with whom I just spoke to from my internet provider, that may be what's preventing the wifi signal from reaching the far corners of my house. I've contemplated adding another router or attempting a DIY solution involving an empty soda can and a utility knife, but today I've come to the conclusion that I just don't NEED to have wifi everywhere. I'm giving up on this "first world problem" and gratefully taking my wifi in my living room and studio and not missing it in my bedroom or on my porch. I'll think of better things to do in those areas of my house like sleep, read actual books and talk to my neighbors in person, instead of focusing on a screen.

    Old structures and systems that influence are thinking want us to give up and lose hope. Yet your revolutionary mind has to fight and understand that times are changing YOU are the ONE in control. So be like nike and just do it.

    Had trouble parking at the office this morning... all the floors were so full I had to back awkwardly down a spiral parking garage and someone else backing nearly hit me when I stopped because a car behind me was trying to come up. I wanted to be upset, but instead I tried taking a moment to imagine how much more serene I might be in that moment if I'd taken public transit or biked to work instead... (though I'd only be serene after biking if I'd had a shower!)
