Alright, lets talk about these past 8 days.
Things are happening! Definitely getting more comfortable with cold e-mails and elevator pitches – and I’m feeling pretty good about where things are going. Slightly overwhelmed, but also thrilled to meet some of these people and hear their stories. I have a lot of questions to construct and send as well as do more research on specific job positions. I contacted someone who has leased land and has agreed to be interviewed and share his family’s experience with fracking on their property. This is happening the first week of Feb. It wont fit in the deadline I gave myself, but it’s definitely a start. I have another interview set up with someone who utilizes renewable energy. This interview date will also exceed my deadline. Yeah know, what I’ve realized is that if I talk to anyone about fracking, most have some type of connection to it or know of someone. This is interesting, because you just never know what ties everyone has and it’s actually not surprising that at least someone knows something or someone associated with hydrofracking. This weekend I actually met someone from Denmark who has family members who are fracking activists. I plan on contacting her father soon and hopefully hear his perspective on whats happening in his town in Europe. I’m really excited about this! The challenge here is he doesn’t speak very good English, so I’m relying on google translate.. I’ve never used this before so we’ll see what happens!
Moving on to my thesis paper…Ugh.
This guy has been neglected.
So lets see if I cant actually meet my deadline with this.

(This is something I might start doing for every post. Personally, I’m always curious as to what people are listening to while they type any piece of writing. There are several times too where I just want to ask people with headphones in, “Hey whatcha listening to?” just out of curiosity.) – Becca fun fact.
