I am content for now at a public service job though I just took some time off to consider departing that career.
To add more richness to my life I am working my way back into more volunteering in my community (working at a community garden planter and getting back into literacy tutoring when school starts again), trying to get into a bit of teaching and working on my blog on management and career issues.
I also trying to stick to a daily commitment to at least minimal exercise in the form of yoga, weights or garden time and I don't own a car so I walk lots.
In addition, I like to spend time thinking about design principles including community planning and architecture.
A good weekend will find me doing some cooking, catching up on reading and maybe watching a movie, including documentaries and foreign films though I can also enjoy a good Hollywood thriller. I also enjoy getting outside to have a long walk, a leisurely bike ride etc. I am going to work on my cross country skill skills a bit more come winter.
I am left-leaning politically and to me that means having a passion for social justice.
I own a home just west of downtown and am really enjoying my neighborhood and its proximity to downtown and Westboro.
