"you must be the change you wish to see in the world."
it sounds so simple, but it can be so freakin' hard. especially when everyone around you doesn't care about changing the world and they just roll along on the conspicuous consumerism/environmental destruction train. ugh.
(i will say that it's a bit easier when you spend roughly 9 hours in a biology building doing grad student-y things monday through friday. but that doesn't leave much time for advocacy or blogging or sleep.)
