Welcome!! I am trying a new layout and I don't know how this is gonna work out exactly... or even if it will... but what the heck.... right?? You can't make an omelette without first breaking some eggs!! This is gonna take me a while to fix so please be patient with me!

If you'd like to skip directly to a particular section... Please click on the links to the left.

About Me

I am a 41 year old mother of two. Anthony (age 9) and Aeryn (age 14). I have two dogs and two cats and a WONDERFUL significant other!! I am an environmental activist and an advocate of volunteering your time to do things to make our planet a better place for the future!! Although I live in Spokane, Washington now... I will forever consider Seattle to be home and I do go back several times a year for actions and other events.




Hobbies

I have many hobbies and things I do for fun. I belong to a medieval recreation group and have (finally) achieved my knighthood in archery. If my body holds out... I hope to get my second one in combat... though that will still be a ways off because i get really nervous about whacking my FRIENDS with kendo shinai.
I am also an artist. I do A LOT of art builds for various activist groups I follow because they know I'm good at making the signs they need. I've done signs for political causes, social justice causes, and mostly... environmental causes. My main medium is paint and recycled cardboard.




Environmental Activism

Besides my family... i have one true love in life. Environmental Activism. I was locked up as a teenager... and while I was there... we were told to find something we are passionate about... and find a club or group to sign up with. I was SOOOOO pissed when they wouldn't let me join Greenpeace...
Nowadays... I belong to a group called Spokane Rising Tidewhich is a part of Rising Tide North America. We have done environmental actions from protesting Megaloads in Sandpoint, Idaho to planning a MASSIVE action (Coming In May) Portland, Oregon. BreakFree will be held in Anacortes, Washington and you can Click Here for more information on that!!
A Few Actions I've Been A Part Of
Megaload Protesting In Sandpoint, Idaho
sHellNo's Luminary Flotilla in Elliott Bay, Seattle, Washington
Not Another Haiyan March and Blockade in Seattle WA
and coming up in may I will be a part of Break Free PNW in Anacortes, Washington




What's Next??

In June... I am going to a really awesome summer camp for activist on Vashon island. I've been to Action Camp before but it is REALLY REALLY fun and you can never learn too much as an activist. After that though... my calendar is still pretty open for the moment. There are bomb train hearings in Spokane but I never know for sure what I'm going to do till right before the event!!!

My proudest moment as an activist was at the People's Climate March. My son, who was 7 at the time stood up with a chant sheet and got the ENTIRE crowd to follow his lead in the chants. I have never been more inspired as a parent as I was to hear my baby yelling. BOMB TRAINS?!?! and a hundred people responding to him. INSANE!!!!

Why Do I Do What I Do?
As an activist, i get that question... A LOT! Over time my answer has gotten shorter and simpler... but no less true. I fight for my planet at the risk of my life and freedom because someone has to. Nothing changes if no one stands up for Mother Earth. We may be different colors, we may have different spiritual paths and lifestyles... but one thing we ALL need to remember is that we are ALL HUMAN BEINGS and without Mother Earth... we do not exist.

I finally landed my dream position with the Earth Day planning committee!!! I'm one of four people on the arts team for the Procession Of Species!!!! We are responsible for every artistic thing to be made for the event. Including the projects for the kids to make AT the event... Masks and other costumes... EVERYTHING!!!!!! The only problem is that we have six weeks to do it. We get a chunk of other volunteers to help.. I finally get to put the stuff I learned at action camp to use!!!! OHEMGEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

I am an environmental activist from Seattle,Washington currently living in Spokane. This May... All over the world. Environmental activists like me will take a stand for Planet Earth. Actions are being planned all over the globe to let Big Oil know that we need to leave fossil fuels in the ground where they belong.

Is it really a strange thing that a person would know that her favorite colors are #000000 and #513dab??? My dad seems to think so. Earlier today, we were having a conversation about counting in base 4 and base 10 as well as binary.(Yes... we have conversations like that) and the subject of base 10 came up in the conversation... and I told him i was quite familiar with hexadecimals because i use them in layouts all the time and that my favorite colors were #000000 (black) and #513dab (an almost indigo shade of purple) he thought it was odd. He is mostly still a technological dinosaur (hates smartphones, can barely check his email...etc.) *shrug* I dunno...
It's no weirder to me than having a conversation about counting in base 4... or some of his really bad jokes...


So i bought a stuffed donkey for my boyfriend at the store today... when i got home, i found him and my son in an easily avoidable argument.... so i pulled it out of the bag, stuck it in his face and said QUIT BEING AN ASS!!!! It was kinda funny but you really had to be there to appreciate it....

The Land Of Confusion... HAHA!! Actually... today's not so bad. (SHIT!!! I'm missing Supernatural... good thing we have a DVR, right??) I'm not nearly as restless as i was yesterday. I'm not tired... yet. (This is a good thing) My only problem is that I can't go organize the bedroom if the man is still sleeping in it!!


Ohhh today is Dr Seuss day at my son's school.... I sent my little Thing 1 off this morning in a very good mood.(Unusual... but I'm not gonna complain. He actually WANTED to go to school today) I SO can't wait till tonight! I get my first kid-free Friday night in two weeks! I have NO idea what to do with myself. I have no other obligations.

My friend is going in for his quadruple bypass surgery in less than an hour... so please send healing energies for him...

Are Elementary Schools For Real These Days???
Wednesday. 3.2.16 10:41 pm
mood: irked to the max....

Another thrilling day....

I went to my son's school today to talk to the principal about opting him out of the Common Core SBAC tests today.. and boy did I get the guilt trip of a lifetime. It does NOT change my mind in the least. Standardized testing is bullshit.... especially for 3rd grade students. A student doesn't need that kind of pressure until high school. I was asked to schedule a meeting with the principal and the counselor to further discuss this matter and I intend to go into this meeting fully armed with my knowledge and blow this guys theories out of the water. It's not practice for later and since (according to the principal himself) it's not the only way of assessing students progress... What precisely IS the point?? They can sacrifice my student if they'd like to.. but I'm more interested in him getting a decent education than making sure he meets an excessively ridiculous standard.
