the work revolution manifesto. join us.  | via stoweboyd: fastcompany
i highly recommend creating a personal manifesto. what do you want, need? what are you willing to do for it? i created one a few months ago. a list of words and pledges written in black ink on the top page of a white legal pad. the page is now worn, wrinkled, ripped in places - but the words, still strong. it travels with me daily and every night before i got to bed i place it on my kitchen counter - to read one more time and to make sure it’s the first thing i read with my morning tea.

A card for one of my many beloved roommates. She got a new job in Philly and will be leaving us pretty soon. It’s a bummer but she’s off to do amazing kickass things… and DC’s not that far from Philly. :)

Last night some of my roommates and I made Vietnamese-style Spring Rolls. I saw the rice paper while grocery shopping the other day and thought it could be a fun group thing to do. You have to dampen the paper in water so it’s soft enough to roll, but after that you can fill it with pretty much whatever you want and that’s it! We used shrimp, spinach, bean sprouts, carrots, cucumbers, butter lettuce, green peppers, and onions. I’ve also read that it’s traditional for people to jam pack these with as many fresh herbs as possible — we used mint and cilantro.
