I keep referencing this list, but hadn't posted it anywhere, though I have posted pieces of it as I add them. Because of [profile] abenn's encouragement, I am posting it now and will keep it at the top of my LJ for future reference.

Suggestions always welcome, by the way.

Life To Do List )
seeksadventure: (Default)
I've updated my Life To Do list: Dreamwidth | Livejournal. It has some new goals as well as a few things I've finished since the last time I updated it. Biggest thing completed recently is getting a dog, of course.

Suggestions always welcome.

Adopting Izzy was the best decision in the world. When I come home from work, we cuddle, because she's missed me so much, and then we play fetch until she's worn out. Then she sleeps against me while I work (either more legal work or writing). We're still working on the housebreaking issue, but she's still the most delightful dog ever.

Unexpectedly, Kitty and the Underworld, Carrie Vaughn's latest Kitty Norville book, showed up today. I wasn't expecting it to arrive so soon, I'd gone to the office thinking a package of cleaning supplies had shown up, but instead, a book I really want to read. Alas, I need to get through this week before I do so. (Yes, yes, I know, book buying ban, but I made an exception for one of my favorite werewolf series.)

Finally bought living room furniture. Pictures of that later.

seeksadventure: (Sons of Anarchy great wide open)
[livejournal.com profile] rachel_manija is holding a book drive to help a Compton school build a library of young adult or middle grade books.

From her post:

Books with Latino/Latina or African-American protagonists would probably be especially appreciated, as that describes most of the students. The students also love manga and other comics, and were hugely excited when I donated some. Many students can read Spanish, and some primarily read Spanish. Other than that, send anything - fiction or nonfiction.

Lifeline Education Charter School is in a low income area, and textbooks are so expensive that they can't afford to buy other books. Mr. Obed Nartey, with whom I had a lovely talk at the school the other day, is creating a new library/computer lab for the students. He is also starting a book club.

Students are already excited about this... but they need something to read. Please help them out, if you can. I will put up some photos of the library which you helped create, when it launches.

Please send books here. Media mail is the cheapest way to mail books.

Attn: Mr. Obed Nartey

If you send stuff, please comment at her post so she can let Mr. Nartey know.

I'm actually pulling books to get rid of anyway right now, but I don't know that I'll have many young adult books go out (those are the ones I tend to love and keep). However, I'm hitting up the bookstore to grab some books for them. Books are wonderful, and amazing, and I wish my high school library had been better stocked with a wide variety of fiction.

I love putting together book packages. I love it. This is one of the things I miss most about working at the bookstore.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] abenn's encouragement, my Life To Do List is now posted publicly here.

I will update it as I find new things to add. Suggestions always welcome.

seeksadventure: (color guard is magic)
+ Find or create a squad like the Flaggots (They even have all-rifle routines. This combines two of my favorite things: queer pride and color guard. I cannot tell you how much I miss the rifle line.)
+ Ride in a Pride parade with Dykes on Bikes

My Life To Do List is basically awesome, as you can tell.

ETA: Perhaps I could find a burlesque troupe that wants a flag and rifle spinner at some point, too. <3
