2 months. 62 days. 1,488 hours. 89,280 minutes. <– My time remaining in the Holy Land. That is all there is to say about that, for the moment anyway. I’m busy working, over 60 hours a week now as things ramp up around here. I love it.
For starters, it has been a bit of a crazy week. I heard about 11 engagements in the course of 1 week…11 couples getting married. It has been pointed out to me that this is probably because I know a lot of people. This is true. However, it is also because it is spring, people are planning summer weddings, and I am 24 years old…all logically leading to a certain percentage of my friends getting married. I am very excited, although I’m only going to a couple of these weddings.
On to the next thing. There are a few blogs/sites that I want to bring to your attention. All of these are on my links page, of course.
Elemental Change – a collaborative blog by some Baha’i friends of mine on a wide variety of topics: entrepreneurship & finance, design & music, technology & social enterprise, politicking & think tanking. I am really enjoying it so far, and can’t wait to see more.
2inspire.us – “What the news ought to be.” I really love the idea behind this. Why is the majority of our news so negative? Well, we know why…people are attracted to tragedy. But our spirits need upliftment too. Check it out.
Baha’i Perspectives – many of you have heard about this site. Articles on subjects that affect all of us, written by Baha’i friends around the world.
Artificial Sound & Light – my friend Vahid changed it up a little bit with his new blog. Totally different from many of the blogs I read.
The Candy Coating – Dangerboy and Orion, two guys with a blog. Thoughtful, often funny essays on various topics. They are both Baha’is, but it is really a place for people to share their thoughts and talk to each other.
Finally, I had a wonderful evening last night. Taco dinner, Persepolis, and an impromptu Sufjan Stevens dance party in my friend’s living room (yes, it is possible to dance to this kind of music). I love that my friends and I can still dance around like when we were little kids…with no judgement or shame. 🙂
