Adventure Style in a Sentence

“Could you describe your adventure style for me?” I asked. Not sure what response I would get…  I got a good answer.  But then I thought… what answer would I give in return? Hmm. Good question, give yourself a pat on the back for that one…  “I like travel that’s rewarding and I hate being a…

Sanctuary

Shifting gears again and trying to understand and build a life that’s going to allow me to be the most happy and productive.  Not entirely sure what that looks like, but I’m realizing that home to me (and maybe to everyone else) needs to be a sanctuary. A place that you can take your pants…

Sleep Deprived

Was, umm… kindly? woken up at 2:30 this morning by the police knocking at my window.  No camping in SLC. Period.  Nicer than the last interaction with the police, but still annoying. He just suggested I try and ‘blend in’ more downtown. I was parked on campus–where I’ve bought a parking pass & am in…

Slow Going

I’ve been sucked into classes and the hunt for a job, thus sucking my productivity and funds for Yeti Building to non-existent. A change of plans… well, actual development of long-term plans have altered my plans with hitting the road in the short term and the build has dropped a few spots on my priority…

Blood is Thicker Than Water

But the real quote is: Blood of the covenant is thicker than water of the womb.  Crazy, right? Talking with a few friends over shared meals lately, the topics have revolved often about how weird a year it’s been. Everyone’s juju is funky. We’re* still working just as hard, but the negativity current is pretty…

Pack It Out, Dummies

“the only way to protect these lands is to hold them sacred.”  This morning I went on a hike at the top of Guardsman’s pass and was so furious about the trash & junk & abandoned (burning) campfires I found that I posted about the lack of respect people apparently have for nature. And damn,…

Kitchening

I’m using the term ‘kitchening’ like my fellow millenials use ‘adulting.’

Design: Adventure

“Here’s to the crazy ones … because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” Living on the road, finding myself home in continually new places and surrounded by like-minded people in each new coffee shop who’s wifi I poach is amazing. And although it’s…

Conscious Consumption

I wrote a post for a blog I used to run with a friend (lots of past tense story setting in one sentence…), and have been thinking a lot about it. In a sentence, I decided that my resolution for 2015 was to consume less. Not just food and drinks–but coffee, media and things. I…

Collection of Creativity

I want to work with you!

Check out what I’ve got…. I’m still, I’m still Jenny from the block…

In betweener:

The weird time between any two events.  In this case, it’s spending more time at my parents house than planned, mooching food (and cookies), prepping & building, and figuring out the best way that living on the road is going to work in the upcoming months.  In betweener, at your service! (Ha, sounds like weiner)

Chant With Me Now 

“Progress! Progress! Progress! Progress!!” Today I made what I feel like is more progress than I’ve made in weeks. Curtains are installed (not lined though because the grays of my fabrics didn’t look good together & of course that matters), all insulation around the bed is finished, and plans for the actual build are finished. …
