End of summer reflection

I found this reflection survey from a coworker, and I thought it was actually pretty cool. Remember facebook notes and how we would do random surveys? This is kinda like that!!! I know it’s kind of corny… but I think it’s pretty important to reflect on moments, time periods, events that happen in your life.

Roadside sunset in Arizona

Back in April, Kristen and I were embarking on a 10 day trip around the Southwest. On our way from Zion National Park to the Grand Canyon, we drove a few hours into Arizona during a beautiful sunset.

The timing worked out great: just as we crossed over the Arizona border, the sun was setting as the moon came up behind some INTENSE Arizona landscapes.

Green spotlight: a green book review

A goal of mine is to use my blog as an outlet to spread sustainable behavior and tips. So I’ll be doing some reviews on ‘green things’ – whatever I think I know enough on that could maybe encourage a reader or two to learn something or become a little more environmentally friendly.

First up: a review on a green book!

Welcome to my blog, lameyland!

The most important sentence in any article is the first one. If it doesn’t induce the reader to proceed to the second sentence, your article is dead.

So…. no pressure.

I read that somewhere. While googling how to make a blog. But honestly, if the reader is gone by now, I don’t care. My feelings are impermeable. Just kidding, I cry when Usher comes on the radio.

My name is Amy, but Lamey is preferred. It just sounds funny, doesn’t it? It started as a social media nickname and somehow came to life. I decided to start a blog, and I knoooow tons of people are doing it, but why does that mean I can’t?

So the blog is called lameyland, a land of all things Lamey. All things me. This is really all about me. I decided to go against what I’ve been doing for basically 23 years (holding in my emotions and ideas and deepest thoughts) and express all of my emotions and ideas and deepest thoughts. Ok, maybe not all the emotional stuff, but I want to share a lot of my thoughts, my pictures, my travels, my music interests, my ideas about living a green, sustainable life, and in general, how to live a life in the lamest way possible. And that’s a good thing.

Anyway, there’s going to be 4 main categories for the time being:
1. Explore
2. Sustain
3. Listen
4. Be Lame
They are the 4 areas I care about the most! I think what would work best is if I posted a small intro post about each section during the next week or so. Am I thinking out loud/into this post? Is that how you blog?

Photos sprinkled in to share what I look like. I think I picked some personable shots.

It’s all a work in progress, I’m definitely not prepared enough to start this, I’m never going to be prepared enough, I’m going to change everything, let’s just get going.
