amandaperlThis goal continues to be tricky

I sometimes have to fight to not beat myself up over not doing more or different kinds of contributing. I am careful what entries I write, but truthfully the first thought that pops into my head when I am scrolling through my goals is “Oh, yeah, I ought to get on that goal.” There are many things I am doing for my community. This does not mean that both I and my community would not benefit from me doing other actions, but it also doesn’t mean that the ones I am doing are not good enough.

I also don’t have to do exactly the same amount as someone else to be a good person. I am who I am, I have the life history and body that I was given, and I can only do so much. 17 months ago

amandaperlSharing creative and frugal ideas

At Scrap they took a pic of my waterproof bag to put on their facebook. I’ve also been talking up swaps a whole lot. I’m very excited about this weekend’s. 17 months ago

amandaperlFabulous work day!

I was taken to a fancy luncheon as a thank-you for my hard work on the Alzheimer’s walk, and then in the evening I threw a modest fundraiser dinner for the local branch of Quilts of Valor. What a treat to fundraise for people with modest expectations! They had a fundraising goal of $50 or maybe $100. We had over $200 before the event started, and our event will more than cover their next YEAR’s expenses. I realize I really do “give at the office;” both money and time, so maybe I should stop beating myself up for not volunteering more; I already do. 17 months ago

amandaperlSo may people

are doing so many cool things. I want in! For today, deciding I want to do something is enough. Tomorrow I’ll work on taking the second step. 18 months ago


Today is MLK Day. I’m troubled by all the injustice I see around me, what can I do? 2 years ago


I’m teaching a bike class to underprivileged youth on Saturdays. They are really cute, we have fun together.

I have been watching the Occupy protests with a lot of interest. I sympathize with them, and even brought some food and water to the protestors in town, but didn’t stick around. Maybe I was too afraid to. Maybe I’m too skeptical that they won’t make a difference in the end. :( 2 years ago
