I promise you the following: I won’t save the universe, be famous, tackle the problems of education, achieve enlightenment, or get entirely off the grid. I will, however, write about the windmills I fight along the way.
I am a wife, mother, teacher, researcher, history nerd, runner, earth-loving, Gandhi-contemplating sustainability-driven vegetarian, business owner, and scatterbrain. I am a chaotic non-linear thinker living with an ex-military champion of efficiency. I am a 5AM riser, 10PM sleeper, and I drink a whole lot of coffee. I teach over a hundred high school students a day, and then come home at night to contemplate the meaning of life. Which I have yet to find under a rock in my garden.
I aim to inspire this generation of super-cool high school kids to change the world (for the better, I hope), so they’ll come back with gratitude in their hearts and millions in their pockets and support me in my retirement. Then I won’t have to eat cat food, which is not vegetarian.
I want to rid the world of packaged goods, one box and carton at a time, and fill my house with mason jars, dried beans, grass-fed beef (for ex-military champion of efficiency). I want to raise a boy who does not become a mutant. I want to preach the gospel of health, wellness, and fitness. I want to grow tons of things and avoid the grocery store. I want to know that I cook better than most restaurants with blinking neon lights. I want to occasionally make fun of the people and things that annoy me, even though I know it will get me bad karma. Most of all, want world peace and an end to human suffering. And another cup of coffee.
