I imagine you are now quizzing flight attendants on the ecological impact of the 20 hour flight.

1)how many people
2.how much trash
3) what types of trash
4) any recycling
5) food waste

or perhaps you are just sleeping :)

Ah! Socal has consumed you! Where's our motivational Leaf Monkey posts?

you're probably out at Neimann Marcus buying brand name purses and such! ha ha!

Monkey said...

haha no i have not been consumed yet but im struggling upstream. it's hard.

and ive never heard of neimann marcus till about 2 days ago where I gave it a suitably monkey scoff. haha

i resisted shopping at san diego zoo gift shop too.

think the only purchase i've made so far is a copy of businessweek at taipei airport. mmm and food of course.

Jane Goodall never quit.

Monkey said...

haha quitting school just means I will focus more on my work on the ground. all that academic redtape just makes me more stressed. sigh

Matt said...

Ha! But it's such a short time and you'll carry it with you forever.

Life is full of bullshit redtape and people. Try not to let it get you down. Easier said than done :) I should know, I deal with it every day.

Ayeeee!!!
