minor update

Currently in the bank, $5 and change.
Rent (due 4 days ago), $440
Sidekick bill, due... I don't even want to think of how many days ago because I'm sure I'm on the verge of disconnection, $30
...I suppose I should also try and factor in what I'd need to get food, subway fare -- maybe even see a doctor some time down the road! But for now I am just aiming for those two.

Money aside, there's been really exciting things going on. I've been getting involved with planning a climate justice confluence in the Northeast this summer, and that will be an awesome way for activists all over the region to network.

I've been contemplating a change of schools, because Brown is great but with money issues I feel like I'll just be stagnating forever, trying to figure out how to make it through crazy-high tuition, and I do want to finish college so I'd rather not put that off forever for the sake of attending my 'dream' school; that's one dream I guess I'll just have to let go of.

I'm quite interested in starting a radical/community-based mental health collective in Boston. Need to find interested people, brainstorm how to get this off the ground.

Maya, You describe yourself as an anarchist. What does that mean?

The recession is going to give you a lot of opportunities to get through Brown. Legislation that is aimed for early next year will help.

I knew one guy that went squatting for four years in the Midwest before he appeared out of the blue and finished his degree. He wanted life experience, which he got.

Maya,

I knew you once a long time ago and I wondered how life worked out for you. I saw with a great deal of sadness that Jax had died. I can remember you talking about him. I am saddened to see that you are struggling, lovely people like you do not deserve such things.

K.
