Artist Unknown

I’ve been gone from this little blog here. I’ll address that when I’m ready; however, good momentum is happening in my life after a few hardships (see my instagram for a little bit of info somewhere in there). So much to blog, so little time.

These are two one-hour npr TED Radio hours I recently listened to and have rocked my world. Most people in my immediate life keep hearing me talk about them. If you don’t know what a TED talk is, you need to know. So start here! 🙂

The future of technology … We knew this stuff. We talk about this happening and what it means. But what are the brains saying about it? Well…..they’re just as scared – and stoked as we are.

My one overall thought is: (you’ll understand this comment better if you actually listen to the links) …we need to be in on it together, as one honest, peaceful loving specie. We have to ensure it will only do good. We’re talking robots and other realms here people. Call me crazy but two centuries from now, mark my words, they’re going to be tele-transporting. Or damn near close to it. What do you think? Crazy balls or duh?

Put a headphone in and get some stuff done while listening to what’s going on in the world of technological advances and how it relates to the digital age and persona. Click each link here: & then press the play button next to the words “Listen to Full Show” so that it will play all audio clips in playlist.

Thoughts on the topic highly appreciated! Looking to start threads and talk to people. Wishing you all health, determination, love and faith. Good night!

San Diego really is such a beautiful city to live in. The lack of disturbing to the heavenly weather we experience allows for us to remember why we are so lucky on the daily. A stretch of 3 days hot, windy weather can remind one why when there is good weather, you can quite literally weather the bad.

I woke this Sunday not sure of my intentions for the day. I had an idea, but wanderlust can be debilitating when feasibily not in the priotization realm (FINALS). But flowers have  been on my brain. So, that became the mission to accomplish this gorgeous day. A Sunday La Jolla Farmer’s Market it was.  I needed some veggies, fruits and sweets too.

After collecting my yummies and new flower decorations ,and of course bedazzling myself in the prettiest of jewels – just to see how they would look before I left, I came home and relished in the cheerfulness of my new bouquet.

For whatever reason this funny topic popped into my head – I was never told the story of the birds and the bees. I wonder if it would have changed the way I look at myself and the world. To it’s credit, it really is a great example to a young human how the world goes ’round, and it’s fragility. ::heart sinks, hope rises::

Wikipedia’s use of words is awe-striking and accurate. The worthiness of this post soley stems from this comical but interesting-thought(“the birds and the bees” story)-of an article.

And now, I’m off to accomplish some homework before work. Speaking of life cycles. #roundandroundwego

I love this article! And I adore the woman who wrote it. She really knows her stuff. There’s something to say for experience. Here she goes over things from color wheel stereotypes to painting room walls dark colors to matchy-matchy furniture.

Feel Free to Break Some Decorating Rules.

With plentiful pictures exampling the techniques that it takes to accomplish solar heating,  in both summer and winter, with just the use of the sun’s rays (no solar panels or such)- this article expounds the ways in which architects are plotting lots and designing windows, walls, and roofs & overhangs, so to effortlessly blend a home into the rhythm of life. It might sound like some things are being repeated, but it can’t be repeated enough until a designer can draft this passive home in their sleep. The man himself and his glorious ways of thinking, Frank Lloyd Wright, are mentioned. Concrete’s benefits are talked about. Shades for the windows are touched upon. And the truth about the insulating properties (“R-value”) of glass-box homes are addressed. Please, read on:

If only I had a home to do all of these time-consuming tasks in. One day!
