Life Updates (Spoiler: I’m Dr. Diener!)

Oh hello, Internet. Apparently my MO is to do a cool, sassy update and then re-abandon my blog. Rest assured: I abandoned for a good reason–well, multiple good reasons! In my post from February 2017, I provided a pretty length update about what I’d been up to during an accidental year-long hiatus from blog writing. I shared some photos of my apartment, wrote about trying … Continue reading Life Updates (Spoiler: I’m Dr. Diener!)

I’m back! And here’s what I’ve been up to…

Why yes, it has been one year since my last blog post. If you’ve followed my blog from the beginning, you know that I’m not the most consistent blogger in the world.

This trip was chock full of lessons in sustainability, little green nuggets that I immediately stored in my mushy brain … Continue reading SXSW Eco | Austin, TX (Trigger warning: this post is mostly about food)

Minimal-ish Packing: 5 Days, 2 Cities

    Six weeks ago, I won two free badges to SXSW Eco, an amazing conference that I feel so lucky to attend. I won the badges through an Instagram competition where I shared some photos from my summer experience in New England.

The Budget: Green Travel Part 4

This trip was originally a great way to check another race off my wish list and visit my big brother. It turned out to be a great lesson on green travel and an incredible lesson on budgeting. Part of living sustainably for me is living a lifestyle that matches my budget. Money is a renewable resource, like trees and many other natural resources. Trees wouldn’t … Continue reading The Budget: Green Travel Part 4
