On Time Banking In Ithaca, New York

THIS WAS SO FASCINATING. This paragraph, in particular, is so true: "Even in a town with a hippie/progressive reputation like Ithaca, time banking is a glaring anomaly in an environment of run-of-the-mill, perhaps slightly more-fair-trade-than-thou capitalism. Yet those who participate in my time bank do not reject, or even distance themselves from, the regular town economy. They are very rarely the people who live off the grid, or on low incomes, or in self-sustaining homesteads. Rather, they are mostly middle-class homeowners who treat time banking much like they treat their soup kitchens and farmer’s markets. It is another way for them to express their connection to the community, without radically transforming it."

On No But Really, Do 1 Thing

My 1 Thing last week was to ask for a grad school recommendation...and I did it! Even though sending a simple email somehow took me five hours! I realized during my procrastination process that my dread was due to the fact that the professor had wanted me to go to grad school in her field, and I am applying to grad school in a somewhat related yet different field, and I thought that she was going to question that decision. But she didn't! So now my 1 Thing is to get started on my personal statements. My plan is do one a month, every month until December....hopefully that should make it less horrible.
