Sometimes you have to move on without certain people. If they’re meant to be in your life, they’ll catch up. — Mandy Hale (via keyfacts)

From “A People’s History of the United States”

"The Constitution, then, illustrates the complexity of the American system: that it serves the interests of a wealthy elite, but also does enough for small property owners, for middle-income mechanics and farmers, to build a broad base of support. The slightly prosperous people who make up this base of support are buffers against the blacks, the Indians, the very poor whites. They enable the elite to keep control with a minimum of coercion, a maximum of law—all made palatable by the fanfare of patriotism and unity."

Gems on every page, lemme tell ya.

Grow fresh produce from spent coffee grounds!
Javaponics is a grow method I kinda stumbled upon several months ago and have been researching and developing since. But how’d it begin?
I started out with aquaponics, a recirculating water system that cultivates fish in the water tank and plants in the soilless grow bed. The fish waste gives off ammonia, which grows bacteria that convert that ammonia into nitrates the plants love. It’s a glorious ecosystem that’s been gaining traction in recent years, but the costs of caring for fish were too great for me to handle (and it seems to be too great for the industry to handle right now, commercial aquaponics is not yet viable).
So bring in the spent coffee grounds. They give off ammonia, just like fish waste, and contain a number of other vital nutrients for plants. Unlike fish, spent coffee grounds do not have to be fed. They do not die and break your system. They do not require climate control.
Javaponics takes the most productive grow method, aquaponics, and throws out what threatens its commercial viability: the fish. 
Whaddya think?

Love and Logic

My quarter is starting off pretty swell. My business model class is practically my reason for existence. And I think I’m in love with my logic professor.

Seriously, it might be a problem. She’s slim and beautiful with short grey hair (yeah she’s old, you catch that all by yourself?) and thick black glasses. She’s spritely, dancing around the room while lecturing, so excited by the logics in her brain that she starts speed talking and cutting herself off, like she’s running this train of thought all for herself and talking out loud for us to enjoy the ride.

I probably looked so dumb just staring at her with a dumb grin on my face from ear-to-ear, head bobbing and weaving to follow her around the classroom.

She is a lovely logician, in love with logic, and now I think I’m in love with her. Sure she’s got a six or seven year old kid and is probably married and could be between 35 and 50, but what is age really, you know? (/mildsarcasm) 

Anyway, I will not be skipping philosophy this quarter, that’s for damn sure. I might even go to office hours. I’ll keep y’all posted on my reverse-cougar escapades.

To close your account at Bank of America you are required to “submit your request in writing” which is such bullshit I think I’m gonna close my account.

Now I’m not sure what exactly I should do in terms of banking and stuff, but I’m fairly convinced that anyone will be better than good ‘ol B of A. Maybe there’s a good credit union around… Or maybe I should put all my money into gold.

Or Turnkey Gardens.
