    I’m starting a blog January 1st 2011 – which will coincide with my vista term. I’m going to be running a personal experiment on downsizing, and decluttering my life to live more simply. (as well as putting myself on a purchasing limit)

    I was so excited to find this blog through the VISTA campus resources.

    Just sworn in January 27, 2011, in Los Angeles. I am looking forward to my assignment at Wyoming Epilepsy Association in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Will be recruiting volunteers, community outreach, grant writing, database management and whatever else I am able to within my skill level. Speaking of skills, please give me some insight on online training and assistance with grant writing as it is a whole new challenge for me.

    Hello to all.
