Hello everyone! Welcome to my blog! As many of you know, I’m taking a gap year before I enroll at Hampshire college in the fall of 2015. I have gotten suggestions from many people to keep a blog over the course of my year, so here it is!
I will write about many different things, but with a focus on my gap year project – tiny house building and simple living. I spent my senior year studying simple living and have been inspired to simplify my life and to gain skills that will help me to become more self-sustainable such as building, gardening, cooking, sewing, etc.
Here’s a link to the book I wrote on simple living for my final senior expedition product. Check it out! http://blur.by/SLFG5L
You’ll also see two other options on the menu bar at the top of this page. My Portfolio will take you to my visual arts portfolio. House will take you to a crowd-source where I will be posting materials that I’ll need to build my house. My hope is that I can get most of the materials free or recycled or donated and that is what the purpose of that site is for. If you’d like to donate something, that’ll be where to go! I’ll post about it when I’ve worked more on the site and you all can start looking at it. There isn’t much to see there now.
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to comment or email/ fb me!
