2. "A good relationship is when two people accept each other’s past, support each other’s present, and love each other enough to encourage each other’s future. So don’t rush love. Find a partner who encourages you to grow, who won’t cling to you, who will let you go out into the world, and trust that you will come back. This is what true love is all about."

  4. "Years ago I learned a very cool thing about Robin Williams, and I couldn’t watch a movie of his afterward without thinking of it. I never actually booked Robin Williams for an event, but I came close enough that his office sent over his rider. For those outside of the entertainment industry, a rider lists out an artist’s specific personal and technical needs for hosting them for an event, anything from bottled water and their green room to sound and lighting requirements. You can learn a lot about a person from their rider. This is where rocks bands list their requirement for green M&Ms (which is actually a surprisingly smart thing to do). This is also where a famous environmentalist requires a large gas-guzzling private jet to fly to the event city, but then requires an electric or hybrid car to take said environmentalist to the event venue when in view of the public.
    When I got Robin Williams’ rider, I was very surprised by what I found. He actually had a requirement that for every single event or film he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work. I never watched a Robin Williams movie the same way after that. I’m sure that on his own time and with his own money, he was working with these people in need, but he’d also decided to use his clout as an entertainer to make sure that production companies and event planners also learned the value of giving people a chance to work their way back. I wonder how many production companies continued the practice into their next non-Robin Williams project, as well as how many people got a chance at a job and the pride of earning an income, even temporarily, from his actions. He was a great multiplier of his impact. Let’s hope that impact lives on without him. Thanks, Robin Williams- not just for laughs, but also for a cool example."

  5. Went to Loving Vegan, a totally #vegan and delicious sushi restaurant. Look at that mockster, fancy sushi roll, and orange chikn. Mmm. (at Loving Vegan)

  6. Carrot hot dogs and Earth Balance mac and cheese. Being #vegan is soooo tough.

  7. My first tattoo. #vegan (at Scapegoat Tattoo)

  10. My Instagram has become overrun with chickens lately. Not a bad thing though. Spent my lunch break with this pretty lady. She walked over to me when I sat down, looked around like she wanted something, so I put her in my lap. It was so cute seeing her head fall as she slowly fell asleep, then pop back up like she didn’t mean to do that. Half an hour later, she preened my hand in thanks and walked away. #100happydays #day95

  12. Yesterday I took the grandest adventure to deliver some hens and a rooster to an adopter. I drove through wine country and the Redwoods! It was so overwhelmingly beautiful. On the way back down I even stopped at some roadside Redwood attractions like driving through a tree! It was hands down the most magnificent drive I have ever been on. #100happydays #day93

  13. Yesterday Animal Place rescued 500 egg laying hens from a battery cage operation. I got to see these girls arrive at our Rescue Ranch and release them into the barn. They’ve lived their whole lives in small cages, never knowing what real birds do, but no sooner were they out of their cages that they started trying to dust bath in the straw! They didn’t even know what dust bathing was but it’s such a natural instinct that they knew it was right. It’s just so amazing. #100happydays #day91 #govegan


  14. Visiting Portland next weekend because my boyfriend and I are planning on moving up there beginning of next year.

    We want to get a feel for the city and check out different neighborhoods and such. Are there certain neighborhoods/areas we should check out (or avoid)? Like, affordable/cheap but not too sketch? Or just generally any Portland tips anyone wishes to share?
