The Struggle Continues

Posted on Jun 8, 2016 in Politics

I stayed up into the early morning to hear Bernie Sanders speak at Santa Monica. With the delegate math against us, mainstream media calling it for Clinton the day before CA, NJ, NM, ND, SD, MT voted and before superdelegates voted at the convention, Obama and other Establishment members publicly pressuring Bernie to quit, and blatant election …

Mostly Commons “Why I Feel The Bern”

Posted on May 27, 2016 in Music

HAPPY FRIDAY! I have been eating, sleeping, dreaming Bernie Sanders for the last few months. Every free hour is spent phonebanking. Every night I have to check on Reddit and TYT for the latest Bernie news before bed. And this long weekend, I am driving to NJ to canvass. So I was looking for some …

Feelin’ The Bern

Posted on May 27, 2016 in Politics

I have been volunteering for the Bernie Sanders campaign since March. Being an introvert, canvassing and phonebanking is not easy for me. I feel so strongly about Bernie and his vision for the future, that I push thru it. But the slammed doors and hang ups do wear on me, so every once in a …

Bernie Is Our Only Hope

Posted on Jan 27, 2016 in People, Politics

I get so upset each time I hear people even friends – privately or publicly – say that Bernie Sanders is the only one talking about things that matter to real people but that he is not electable. If we would just stop with all the resignation and inevitability of our doomed fate, maybe we …

Thinkpad T400 Keyboard – Replaced!

Posted on Dec 29, 2013 in Tech-Gadgets

I LOVE LOVE my Thinkpad T400-7417 laptop – a PC Magazine Editor’s Choice – but it is almost 5 years old — ancient in computer years. The popular keys – e, i, c, s – were sticking so often that typing was getting so painful.  I know I need to buy a new laptop but as …

Sara Bareilles – Brave

Posted on Oct 18, 2013 in ABOUT, LIKES, Music

HAPPY FRIDAY! I have been listening to Sara Bareilles’ “Brave”  non-stop this week. I absolutely love the video of real people breaking out in dance and song in public and her music/lyrics/message  – to empower people to reveal their real selves and stay brave through the scrutiny – really resonates with me. In the middle …

Hello Kitty on Campus

Posted on Aug 4, 2013 in ABOUT, College

Around back to school season I get envious of all the kids shopping for school supplies and get nostalgic for simpler days of youth when all you needed to do was study and focus on getting good grades.  So was browsing online and I was surprised and delighted to find my old campus store selling …
