Are you in Control?

Did you know that you can control your life? You’re probably thinking, “Well duh, it’s my life,” but when was the last time you actively thought about how to make a change in your life? For me, the answer used to be not often. I knew where I was going and how to get there, … [Read more…]

2015 Goals

I know, I know, I haven’t posted in over a month! Been dealing with several issues. But now that a new year has arrived, and I’m back in my own room, I feel more settled down and ready to prepare for what’s to come. I’m not really one for New Year’s Resolutions (why wait until … [Read more…]


I know it’s been a while since I posted about my life changing decisions, and I promised updates. According to that post, this week is supposed to be my last week of work. Well after lots of discussion with family and friends, I’ve decided to wait until January to leave my job. Many people were extremely … [Read more…]


Today/Last night I was reminded about how very important sleep is in our lives. After a lovely dinner and evening chatting with my Warmshowers guests last night (which I wrote about here), I got all ready for bed, turned my computer off, and read for a bit to make myself sleepy, and turned out the lights … [Read more…]


In case you’ve never heard of it, Warmshowers is a website to facilitate hosting of bike tourers around the world. It is similar to Couchsurfing in that it is a community of reciprocal hosters and hostees, but Warmshowers is only for cyclists. I’ve wanted to do a long bike tour ever since I got into biking, and once … [Read more…]

Rob Greenfield is basically an activist adventurer determined to help people diminish their negative impact on our planet. I spent hours this morning reading all about his journeys across the US by bicycle with no money, raising awareness about food … [Read more…]

Halloween Treat Alternatives

It’s that time of year again. The beginning of the holiday season. This time of year has given me a lot of conflict over the years; from having the best costume, to giving/receiving the best gifts. My opinion has changed a lot over time from a greedy child to a rational adult, but today I’d like … [Read more…]

A Primal Backpacking Experiment

Last weekend I spent three days backpacking through Yosemite. It was amazing. Trees, rocks, mountain vistas, and 5 of my friends. Before I left though, I noticed one big problem: food. I have been eating primally since May, which means no bread, no rice, no pasta, no packaged crap. Basically none of the standard backpacking … [Read more…]

Primal Backpacking Food Prep

Hello again! My friends and I have been planning a 3 day backpacking trip to Yosemite for a few months now, and though I have many concerns, my biggest one is definitely how to eat primally out on the trail. I know that rice and pasta are calorie dense and last a long time, but I want … [Read more…]

PrimalCon Oxnard 2014!

I started my Primal journey back in March, and have been really excited about it. Unfortunately, nobody else I knew was particularly excited about it. It’s hard to make such a big change and have no one to talk to. So when I decided to attend PrimalCon this year, after only 6 months of living … [Read more…]
