Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Park Fail!

So I was GOING to go to this park cleanup today… but then after leaving the house and renting a car (horrors! X_X) at 9 to get to this park cleanup in Staten Island that lasted from 9-2, my mom and I… um… got lost. So after looking around for half an hour we gave up and went to Gateway National Park and saw this fort memorial museum. It was cool – but that’s all there was, plus a walking tour. Now if there had been a HIKING tour… But at least we got to see this fort from relatively close (Fort War-someting? I’ll edit this if and when I find out): Staten Island Fort Mom!

Me at the FortAnd me again
Then we went and tried out my mom’s new GPS navigator to get to the closest Indian place we could find – in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. (Adios Staten Island!) We didn’t get much though, next time I’ll remember to take pictures. Had to clean the house and didn’t get enough exercise in today (my exercise was GOING to be cleaning the park), but tomorrow I’m SAILING!!! Muahaha!!! I promise to have pictures!!! Time to work on an evil English term project… but before I go here’s some music… this is going to be in my head when I’m writing it…

(btw AI is one of the most awesome and underrated movies EVER!!!)


So my goal is to post once a day. At least a line or two. And hopefully once I learn how to use my camera I’ll get some awesome pics up. =)

So let’s see… tomorrow I’m going to this cleanup at Brooklyn (haven’t gone to cleanups in so long!). And just yesterday I finished this application for an awesome program called the NYC Minority Environmental Training Institute. If you want to find out more about it all the forms are on the site =) It’s an awesome training program in the parks in NYC! =)

Anyway time to test my technical capabilities and see if I can get an mv in here:

This is my guilty pleasure by the way, I also like less poppy music but their dancing is SOOOO cool… and it’s so much fun to figure out who’s who XDD
Can you find Kyuhyun? Or Yesung?

First Post!

Hey everyone, this is Marcela, and this is my first real blog ever. Well no, I’ve actually tried before, but never really seriously. Now however, I’ve gotten so inspired by MIT bloggers and environmental bloggers and the whole active online world that I’ve decided to try it out too =)

So what can you expect here? Well, there will definitely be a strong environmental component of this blog, with news, green tips, possibly recipes, recipe reviews, thoughts, and more. Then I’ll also have reviews of Asian dramas (my friend Lena’s idea!) and then I’ll probably have pages of other randomness from my life as well. Maybe some MIT related stuff once I go there. We’ll just have to see.

Thanks for checking my blog out! If there’s more than one post here by June 1st that’ll be a good sign! A VERY good sign! XDD
