Return to My Roots

It's been too long since I've visited my blog. Many changes, both good and bad, have transpired since I last wrote about the Carnival of the Green. I look back at this blog knowing that my core beliefs have been firmly represented here. This is who I am, a person concerned with important issues that go beyond the self.

And yet, I am looking at myself in wonderment. I no longer question who I am, but look with curiosity at who I may become.

I am changing, and hopefully for the better. I am willing to let go of decisions I thought were once good, but have unfortunately soured. What to do, but to get back to my roots and my core.

Thank you everyone who have participated in this journey with me. Thank you for the ride and for the good stories. The adventure must go on, even though the characters and plots may change.

As is with nature and its steady fluctuations, we move on. Hopefully to bigger and brighter things, but never guaranteed. I hold fast to these memories forever grateful. Take care of yourself and of those who love you, plants and animals.

That is beautiful, Michelle, as are you, inside and out. I am sorry things did not work out as you had hoped, but I am confident that you will grow in meaningful ways as you continue down this journey of life.

Not quite sure how anyone knows you to be a beautiful person. I witnessed you treating your students pretty poorly, and I have been resentful from the day I took your statistics class. Funny thing is, you never treated me poorly. Yet, I always disliked you. You thought you were better, and the majority of the class was too stupid to see it. You wasted your students time with recycling for stats class, and that semester we didnt learn much of anything. You required us to write on your blog about recycling, not statistics. You forced us to write a paper on some book about recycling, which literally had nothing to do with statistics. And no, a book full of numbers and pecentages does not count as a learning assignment. What we did do was support your agenda- promote recycling. And another thing you tried to do, was force us to be on television so YOU could be in the news. Completely sick and twisted. I couldnt believe you got away with it. I am GLAD to see that you have left IUSB. Have fun Rutgers.

Hello, I just visited you site through Google because I am interested in blogs about plastic bags conservation. And you site is one of those. I really believe that plastic bags should not be banned but only to be regulated because it is very useful.
