Project 52’s theme this week is “green.”
For Earth Day, I celebrated by posting obnoxious status updates about my vegetarianism, along with links to disturbing documentaries highlighting the ways in which humans are essentially horrific.
Then I guiltily eyed my leather shoes and I couldn’t sleep because I thought about where the leather comes from.
So, in an abrupt change of topic, I received my Master’s degree 9 years ago now. Wow. I think my knowledge is totally outdated. People keep giving me funny looks when I recommend holding therapy. Hmmm.
Anyways, when I graduated a friend gave me a “lucky bamboo” plant. It was sort of symbolic, something about prospering and being lucky – yet I have no luck and I have not exactly prospered.
But would you believe I still have that bamboo?
Obviously, it is not in my backyard all the time.
I wonder if it means I am lucky because it is still around? I don’t know. I just like it.
