Distancing myself from corporate America as much as is possible in New Jersey. Boycotting Walmart & Nestle, eating organic, buying Fair Trade etc.
Trying to be a role model and guide for my son.
Living yoga, on and off the mat.
Learning Hindi, Spanish and most recently Polish.
And yes, I have a job that pays the bills.... but the other stuff I've mentioned is more enjoyable to talk about.
Dystopian fiction (George Orwell, Aldous Huxley)
Young Adult fiction (JK Rowling, Scott Westerfeld)
Social commentary fiction (John Grisham, John Steinbeck, Khaled Hosseini)
Insightful biographies (Ishmael Beah, Ta-nahisi Coates)
Philosophy (particularly on yoga)
Game of Thrones
Various African music
Various world cuisine (within my vegan restrictions)
Coffee shops (fair trade)
And yes I'm avoiding the obvious ones.
Or these days calling senators and others who can in some way try to thwart the dictatorship that is taking over our country. Or I might actually be in the city at a protest!
Let's hit the gym, go for a run, play a board game, plan a hike, peruse a bookstore.
If you're idea of a first date is attending an anti-Trump rally together you should absolutely message me!
