This article seeks to take a step back and revisit the fundamentals of what the building of a sustainable city requires. The footprint of cities is a heavy contributor to the un-sustainability of life on the planet; each city takes much more ...

    This week, I officially launched my project "101 Odd Jobs". In a crazy job market like today, so many people are under utilized or unemployed. Almost one-third of the workforce is self-employed in the states. So what does that look like? How does one become self-employed and what methods are lucrative? I'm going to try to answer these questions, one job at a time.Thank you to all those who donated to help me make this project a reality. Your support is overwhelming and I feel so loved.

    I know I promised stories on my first night as a bike messenger, and I promise, it's coming. But today, I want to share my feat of the day. I launched my new jewelry line.In a world like today, where at least one third of the workforce is self-employed, there is a large part of me that desires that freedom. I want to wake up when I want, work when I want, and do the work that I want to do: work that is meaningful. So, in my mostly unemployed state, I've started exploring the right side of my brain, the creative side. I've learned to play the ukulele and brushed off my keyboard. I would…

    Yesterday morning, I woke up early to head out of the city. Immediately, as we drove out, leaving behind towering structures of glass and steel, we found fall. Bright red leaves and orange foliage rained down on the highway. It was the first time since moving to Brooklyn that I found something was missing. But it’s true. I miss trees, stars, and fresh soil smell.So, heading to a farm was just what I needed. We were packed into a tiny little car, four of us in the backseat, as we rolled up to Stuart's Farm. People were crawling about everywhere, kids crying and laughing, dogs waiting to be…

    So today, after dealing with credit card companies all morning, I'm off to begin my training to become a Bike Messenger with PostMates. It's basically like Uber for anything you could possibly want delivered to you. I could be bringing people food, or important documents.. Who knows!Bottom line is: I get to be that cool person rolling around the city, looking like they're in a hurry to get somewhere. My messenger bag is on my back, all cool looking, my head is down, and my helmet obscuring my face.A car tries pulling out in front of me. I screech to a stop and bang on the side of the…
