I just found this NPR story on homelessness in Hawaii and thought it was really interesting. I don't plan on being homeless when I arrive in Hawai'i, but it does seem like an alluring idea, although I don't think that the residents of the state should be responsible for paying for services for mainlanders to come be homeless on their island. It's something interesting to talk about. Thoughts?
I have been lacking motivation lately.. but school is finally out. With some free time on my hands and good stories from the dorms, Ive gotten a little motivation to post some stuff from recent dives. Here are a few pictures from my latest excursions:
We found tons of Roma tomatoes, green peppers and some hydrangeas that night. Yay, plants! Its been weeks now and I really need to plant them; they perked right up and are about to bloom.
My first night at the dorms. Lots of food and bags as well as several other wonderful miscellaneous items that I never usually find.
The second night was more fruitful. I finally found a big desk calendar! Ive been looking for a while.. Other things of interest, a bag of potting soil, loads of microwave popcorn, a really cool backpack and some cute girls clothes. I also went to the grocery that night and found lots of yummy produce.
Another night at the grocery with my friend. She didn't wear the most appropriate foot wear, but we made sure to be careful to stand on the boxes and still had lots of fun! I've been known to climb in wearing flip flops.. not always the best idea, unless theres something really good inside!
Another friend checkin some stuff out at the dorms.
Last night I went with Laura and we found lots of girl's clothes, a rug, some boots, swiss army knife and lots of other random stuff. The TV has a DVD player in it and works fine.. I think it came from the dorm where the international students stay, but there is still no reason for something like that to be in the dumpster..
I am going back to the dorms tonight with my friend Maria. I am hoping for an ipod, another new pair of shoes, a full length mirror and some clothes. We'll see how it goes.. I suppose Ill be posting more regularly now that I'm done with school for the semester. Now I've got to start sorting out all the details for moving to Hawai'i in less than three months. That makes me a little nervous!
Have any of you had success diving at your local colleges? I would love to hear your stories!
