People who I want to give applesauce to:

Kristine Woods
Anna Fine Foer
Rebecca Nagle
Sima Krtalic
Jillian Coratti
Travis
Christine
Jody
John
Pat
Afton
Dave
Heather
The Folks
Emily
Brian
The St. Paul Fundakowski's
The Miners
Aunt Bonny
The Steins
Nancy Tudorov
Christine Ricks & Timothy Mason
Angie Ivanova

So, I'm going to have to get about two cases of jars when the time comes. Gotta figure out what size jars I'm going to can in, wide-mouth half-pints, I'm thinking? I'm designing my labels right now. Expect these around New Year's, folks!

Accountable for my things? Pssht, yeah right!

I can't for the life of me find my immersion blender attachment for my Braun food processor. How am I supposed to make smooth applesauce without it? So confused!

Home sweet Twins

I went a little out of budget today getting gosh gifts for the folks I love back home. And then bought $30 on apples to make cran-applesauce. Which is what I'm doing right now, listening to Taylor Swift.

About JDate...I've been dissapointed. I'm used to getting chased. But I'm in Blairstown, not Baltimore (despite still being the #1 Baltimore hipster on Google). My desires are pretty specific (I'll e-mail you what's on my profile, mama!), and the population of Jews is sparse. However, I'm willing to wait, and seek, and go on dates. And I know the guys must be afraid of rejection, but I find it really easy to say "yes!" Seriously, I'll give almost anyone a first date! Gas is cheap and my hopes are high! Come on, Jews of Jersey, what's taking you?

Visual apparitions

I have an awful lot to write about, about facilitating, and I am going to make that entry later today or tonight. I'm excited to be heading home to Blairstown, though less thrilled that the temperatures have risen once more.

New Layout


Ta-dummm!

NEWS: Anteaters are cute.


This message is brought to you by the letter E and one lazy Sunday afternoon. More adorable images at old trendhunter article here.

Welcome to my new readers!


I've re-done the header and retired the Thur Broder layout I've had for so long. If you're keeping up with my Twitters (at my old LiveJournal), you're undoubtedly aware of the fact that I've caved and joined JDate. Yes, the paid dating site for Jews. I figure, I live in an area without a lot of those folks, and those are the gentlemen I'd like to date.


I'm a 22-year-old relative newcomer to the northwest corner of New Jersey. I just graduated from art school in Baltimore with a degree in fiber and am doing something completely unrelated as a residential experiential education facilitator for middle-schoolers through adults. During the summer I work at what was once my prestigious Ivy employers' camp for disadvantaged youth working on character development with the same Primary Service Population. During the spring and fall I travel a lot in Camden, Newark, and Trenton to reach the same population on their own territory. I live at my work in Blairstown, NJ, in a cabin across a dam and next to a lake. I am a Wilderness First Responder and have taken self-defense classes. I am saving up for a seafoam green Bianchi Milano. I like big sunglasses, skinny jeans, rock climbing, identifying birds, hiking, camping and cooking. I've been a vegetarian for fifteen years. I go to the local bar once a week to get birch beer on tap. It is just that good.

Look at all these crabs!


The boldly patterned pom-pom or boxer crab likes to carry live sea anemones in its claws, brandishing them in defense when it feels threatened.

Miracles are happening in Blairstown!

Update on the cross burning in Hardwick Township, just a mile and a quarter down the road from me. There was a Unity March which I got off of work too late to attend in front of the home. I work with a lot of inner-city kids out here in Blairstown, and it's a blessing the story hasn't picked up the coverage it might have.

I have moved all my Twitter mini-mobile updates to an old livejournal, so if you are interested in reading those add http://lenablair.livejournal.com to your RSS feed readers.

From here on out to the near future, only full-on real-live 'blogging will be happening on this 'blog. Prom promise.

Oh, and the miracles I'm speaking of? Upon returning from working in Princeton and Newark this week, my iPhone battery was draining more quickly than it should have last night. And then I realized that my laptop connection was operating at lightening-fast speeds. Three-G has come to Warren County, and it is as awesome as I've always dreamed!

I'm recovering very well from my illness that struck on the west coast. I'm processing my experience at the AEE conference. I'm getting my work-outs in, and feeling okay about my body. There's something I've been putting off for FAR TOO LONG, and I'm working up the courage to bite the bullet.

Life post-college for me is shaping up to be pretty great, don't worry too much about me. I'd love to do what I can, and if that means being a late-night sounding-board, I'm strong, let me share that load you're shouldering. And if you need a void to send the ether of your thoughts, I will be the best void I can be.

Looking forward to being able to walk and ice skate to work this winter. My commute of 3 minutes will be halved when the lake is solid enough.

It's 5 AM here in Vancouver, WA

Intrepid readers, I was awoken while sleeping by my coughing, got into the shower to try and loosen some of the shit in my lungs. I tried to go back to bed and just creaked open the laptop and kept coughing.

Not really a problem, if I was staying at the Hilton on my own. Instead of keeping my sometimes-supervisor Heather up through the remaining wee hours, I put on my bra and Five Fingers, finger-combed my moist tresses and here I sit in the Hilton lobby.

(Digression: They re-sized women's FiveFingers, where the W40 are a little large for me the NEW W40 fit me perfectly at the heel. They also come in blue and leaf-green with grey.)

Yesterday was my first day at my first international AEE conference, and the first session I went to was on the postmodern student, to me the solution to the student that wants to smoke on expedition or bring iPods, I would bring that back to the student. How do you think that will change your experience? That of your peers? And you blend it, saying things like, when I have my iPod on, I tend to have a harder time paying attention to others; how does wearing your iPod affect you?

Also, my supervisor Dave recently told me that it is valuable to seek to understand, then be understood, to create a healthy repor and relationships.

Coming to this conference shows me where my organization is really quite strong (I was well-trained as a facilitator), and where we are lacking (inter-organization communicaton, well-defined positions, poor utilization of resources at times, diversity of staff and recruiting of alumni).

This has very little to do with me, being a peon at the front-lines. I work with students in schools and on-property, and I really make change. However you can train people to be in my position. People need to grow and have experience to hold the positions which are currently open, so there's not a lot I can do to help.

As far as conferences go, I think this conference is pretty fantastic, and I am thrilled that The Ivy sent 8 individuals to learn and grow from it.

Long time no blog!

I don't want to dwell too long here (in this little text box) because I just don't have time.

I put on some weight and I'm working on that. I'm not the person who becomes anorexic because I put on a few pounds, but when winter hits I do not feel like being very active. My climbing level is 5.6-7. I've taken on swimming laps to prepare for the qualifying 550 that I couldn't do in June. And I can, indeed, swim it without stopping. There's less yoga and more time in cars and eating in restauraunts, which is working against me an awful lot in my challenge to lower my caloric intake. I literally haven't been hiking in ages.

Another challenge that has arisen is my relationship with my new supervisor. Why is that a challenge? Because I don't exactly have the best track record of working with supervisors. I have not always been able to articulate the support I needed.

RIGHT. So the GOOD thing I wanted to blog is that I am about to visit my folks for a SUPER short period of time, hopefully get to see my friend Jonathan as well, and am hitting a Association for Experiential Education conference, which should be pretty much mind-blowingly fun and re-energizing. Washington State here I come!

The Post In Which I Own My Prejudice.

I had two different groups of participants to facilitate this past week. The first were a group of high school peer leaders (seniors) from New Brunswick, NJ, where 400 students began in their class and just 175 will graduate in June. The second were from a wealthy private school in Manhattan. The first group was at my place of work to get stuff done; they chose their co-leaders for the year on day two of three. The ninth grade Manhattanites were in Blairstown to "bond."

When New Brunswick left, I knew each and every name, and the colleges they were applying to. I knew where they worked after-school, what got on their nerves, who had a tendency to lead and who to follow.

Of the second group, I couldn't tell you names. Didn't retain the neighborhoods, save one Hoboken and one Spanish Harlem in the bunch. The girls were nice, but easily distracted. They're young, 14. They also have been to more foreign countries (mine: 0), go on vacation every summer, attend camp for weeks on end, and prefer salad to fast food. Most of them. Some are on scholarships, but overall these girls were a challenge for me.

I didn't grow up poor. I was in the upper-middle class in the suburbs of D.C., living in a house that was practically palatial. But we bought our piano used from the neighbors down the street. We grew our own vegetables, tomatoes, strawberries. I split wood with a sledgehammer and bomb, for crying out loud! Prince George's County, MD was (is?) the capital of Afro-American wealth in the States. White flight led to being half-white when I was six and 85% black by the time we moved when I was 16. I relate more to the kids who came in the beginning of the week, minority-majority students who often needed to overcome gang and drug culture from D.C. as their families escaped into the suburbs.

I went to schools where the stalls could be looked over, where there were parenting classes for the teen mom's-to-be, where a student once had her head bashed in by a sink behind my high school.

And so, even though I'm sporting a hipster scarf like the Manhattanites, and faced few obstacles to graduating high school, applying for then atttending college, I don't feel the same as those girls. I feel jealous, angry, unsophisticated, and befuddled: how do I challenge you? What are your struggles? And how do I help you get something out of experiential education?

A question I'm working on answering at the moment.

To be fair, October through May I will be working in my schools with our Primary Service Population, "underserved urban youth," who are the groups who I find easier a repor with.

I've experienced racism as a white person, and it wasn't fair, it didn't feel good (though I'm happy I've had the experience of being a minority, if it makes sense). It's not fair to pass that prejudice on to my own pale students now. It's not appropriate, logical, or productive.

How many blueberries?

I survived my first foray into canning as an adult a few weeks ago.

My co-worker/friend Christine and I, along with fellow co-worker Nancy, all picked wild blueberries in some harrowing mosquitoes off of the Appalachian Trail. I also canned some Shiro plums (read: the very pretty bright-yellow Japanese variety) with lemon. More pectin as thickener next time, but overall it was a very pleasing experience. We picked for 4.5 hours, yielding 18 jars of what I am calling "Wild Organic Free-Range Blueberry Jam" from the hills of the Delaware River Valley. Truly a feat considering how tiny the wild berries were, I think.

I also deemed it was time this month to invest in a new climbing harness, a tent, sleeping bag, and pad of my own. I paid all of this month's bills already, and October will be lean for me to save up for my Association for Experiential Education conference in the beginning of November, which will be around $750, we think.

The moment

The moment you suggest your product/lifestyle/service is hip and contemporary, it is neither. New article on hipster culture in AdBusters.

Hiked seven miles yesterday, getting friends tonight at the train station, tomorrow more outdoor sport with my friend Angie.

Doing great at the new job, feeling great about ending out a tough tough week. Today I'm just trying to get a ton of cleaning and neatening up done because I'm getting some roomies come the mid-month, all the women staff members will be moving into the other half of my house, so the bathroom and kitchen areas need to be spotless and ready for company. I'm excited to have some company, but I do love having my own side of the lake.

I can't believe how hard it is for me to find some company here in Blairstown, New Jersey. Most guys aren't my age, and I'd love to get into the city a lot more, meet more people. I miss my blogging a lot, my art a lot. My professors, my school. It's strange to be out here alone on this big blue ball.

I caved.

I laid down $300 for a 16 gig iPhone today at AT&T in Allentown, and I'm excited for the prospect of actually getting service at my house. My current case preference is a Treadz case by iFrogz, and I'll be getting a new pair of headphones next week, something rugged, to go with it. I'm several thousand in the hole, what's a few hundred, it seems? As I work longer at Princeton, I'm looking forward to paying off the credit card bill with whatever remains after monthly expenses are calculated, it should take me a year and a half, then it's saving and paying off the car early from there.

What is....

Are there any mensches out there who know the yiddish word for a "pack rat" or someone who always has lots of bags full of schach (stuff)?

Apparently, I Blogged too soon

Two nights ago, a juvenille black bear who lives in the Delaware Water Gap area hit the car I was riding in. I have no explaination for this, and I must admit that I have a hard time working it out in my head myself, but that bear ran right into Afton's passenger door, and upon leaving the Blairstown Inn, our favorite drinking hole with A-Treat birch beer on tap, we saw the true extent of the damage. There was no mailbox nor trash can. It was a bear.

Today I am actually taking photos of the place where I live, hooray! Especially my garden, which grows quite well these days. I'm spending all day in ipod land and cleaning and organizing. Best three days off ever.

Except for that bear thing.

I have yet to be eaten by a bear.

Even in the center of the western world, New York City, I find a little bit of heaven barefoot in the grass in Central Park, chomping on a Snow Cone.

As I relaxed on July 4th, Independence Day, with my faux-family in Allentown, PA, I came to the realization that I long passed my own "independence day." And yet, somehow, I am still not entirely dependent. I find myself relying on others now more than ever, now that I am part of the Real World.

This morning I woke up thinking I was driving someone just 45 minutes away to a NJ Transit stop in Dover. Shortly thereafter I found myself in Newark on a train to New York City, without earphones, wireless card, or cellular phone. I'm heading back out on the subway to Penn Station just as soon as I can remember how to get there and rest my toes. I spent $4 on the ticket to NY, $2 on the subway, and $5 on the Met (don't go to see the Tara Donavan piece, it's unimpressive at best, and if there were more air currents in the room it might be a little more lively.)

Artscape is going on in Baltimore, and here I am, miles away and a world apart from all I know and love, and I'm doing just fine okay at that.

...And now, just hours later, I'm back on the porch of my cabin, Twins, enjoying a hazy late afternoon and watching the young phoebe's that nested atop my porch light hawk and hover in pursuit of some unlucky flies and such. Drinking white birch beer and enjoying the midsummer breeze, I've got to say that New Jersey, thus far, has become quite good to me.

Neighborhood News

So this week I've seen speckled and spotted salamander, also a rabid raccoon and my first bear, dozing in a tree. This morning one of my co's Nancy spotted a bear in the tree by the dining hall, about 200 feet away, which we soon realized was a mama and two adorable monkeyesque cubs, wreaking havoc on this poor tree! It was lovely! And that's the latest news on this end!

Posted every 24 hours by LoudTwitter

Things I would like to buy:

New climbing harness (and lots of other gear) using my pro-deals. Since I'm now an outdoor professional! Yes!

New headphones, retro-style.

Slipcovers for my couch and love seat.

Leopard & a bigger hard drive from my friend.

I don't have a title for this.

Whew. Let me tell you, it's already been a busy weekend, and it's only Sunday. Friday night I had Shabbat dinner in Allentown, PA, and I hit the home & garden center and Target for more athletic wicking bras and tops and plants for our newly-delegated garden. All said and done I spend a little over $200, most of it on the C9 Champion gear from Target, but I got some very nice racer-backed tops which will serve me well over the course of the summers and at the climbing gym. I even got a blue one, a color I don't wear often and I'm not sure why because it brings out my eyes. Also, I got a small hydration daypack which is big enough for a rain layer, a sweater, and a couple field guides, as well as 2 litres of water, which is way better than my old jansport bookbag that got me through four years of high school.

One of my co-workers and I decided to pool our respective lands and garden together. We have asian hot peppers, roma tomatoes, early girl tomatoes, cukes, watermelons, canteloupes, beans, and more in the ground. Her dad came up and tilled the soil, and I gardened barefoot, the soft earth between my toes and bringing back memories of working the garden with my mom when I was a kid. Christine and I were ambitious, we packed it in tight and I do hope that it proves slightly successful before the end of the growing season, as it is somewhat late to be planting.

Tomorrow I'm heading up quite early to Princeton's campus to do the Human Resources thing. I'm also dropping off a ton of CPR and AED training supplies at our 350 Building, which houses also Outdoor Action, the outdoor club at Princeton. I've never seen an Ivy league school, so I'm pretty excited about that, even as I'm happy to NOT have had that experience for my four years of undergrad.

Looks like a friend or two will be coming up to visit me in the next month. I've got to file two time off requests, one for a long weekend, one so I can do the doctor-dentist thing here in NJ. I also have another day off on my way because I'm missing the one everyone else gets tomorrow. Each month I get two paid vacation days, and I think two paid sick days? I'm also signing up for insurance tomorrow, which is exciting. I've never had my own insurance before.

Photos as soon as I can, really.

Oh! Also, I saw a rabid raccoon and a real live black bear before I got my t-shirt and frisbee at the completion of staff training (I hate frisbee cause I'm bad at it, but I'm getting better). It was a fitting end!

Today I'm cleaning up my house before driving to Allentown.

Hello from the porch of the main lodge!

Gosh, I missed 'blogging! Those who have tried to reach me will understand that I have very crappy reception here, and internet doesn't go all the way to my front porch so I am largely disconnected.

Still, I'll try and update you all on my new job. Of course, this 'blog is not just for you all, it's my own catalog of daily life for my future self, and it's primarily that reason that makes me realize how important it is to keep blogging.

Today I hope to take a bunch of photos of where I live for you all, as well as of the new car (and plates!). Oddly enough, I didn't get a registration sticker for my plates at the MVA in Newton yesterday, so here's hoping I don't get pulled over anytime soon.

Also on the agenda for today is figuring out whether or not I can swim 550 yards in the lake in an unspecified amount of time. It's actually cool and humid out, so not the best day for getting in the lake, but I'd rather not waste time tomorrow that could otherwise be spent on the ropes course learning high elements if I can't do the qualifying swim.

Also, my hair is in my eyeballs, and I am signing up for insurance next Monday.

It's crazy, like training schedules always are, but it;s beautiful here, I have a cabin to myself and it's massive, the shower sucks and of course there is not as much down time as in other jobs, but hopefully this evens out with the fall's schedule. I'm sitting in a pavilion being sneaked up upon by a vast quantity of geese, and also I am going to learn to bear-bag, FINALLY.

I'm missing a few comforts of home but not a lot, and I'm eager to strike a balance where I am happy healthy and well-rested.

Tonight is the last night in my new home for the next four nights, I am super excited to be able to sleep in my own bed again when that is all over.

Yo!

Props to Dani for getting plugged on design*sponge for her helvetica poster!

I've got less than a week left here in Baltimore, I'm planning to head up in a day or two to get a PA or NJ license, pick up the new car, and all that good stuff. NJ may be easiest but I have no proof of residency anyplace other than california, which is somewhat annoying. Also annoying is getting insurance squared away, which I certainly want for picking my car up.

If you want to see me before I go, please let me know your preferred activity and visit in the next day or two. I am leaving on Saturday, sleeping in Allentown, and will be at camp Sunday morning. For the first week, through June 14th, I'll be spending a lot lot lot of time outdoors and won't have cell and internet access. I assure you, I won't be dead.

To shoot me PHYSICAL mail, please post to:
