Man, this is rough! How did I used to do this with any sort of regularity? I should reread my old posts to see what magic is contained within. I'm trying to find some sort of NaBloPoMo writing prompts online to help frame each day, but so far, I'm out of luck. Maybe part of the ease in my former life was that I didn't have to worry too much about public versus private lives, online. Not that I'm leading a great life of mystery, but when they are folks in your life that prefer to not have their entire life (and the parts that overlap with mine) spelled out online, it does severely curtail what I can write about. So, to wrap this up, I'll as for suggestions about how to frame posts and suggestions for websites for writing prompts. Because this may quickly devolve into what I eat each day and unless you are excited to read me eating about dried seaweed, that's gonna get old fast.

Earlier this week, I reached an important milestone in my life as an adult and as a San Franciscan - I bought my first bike! Because when is a better time to spend $550+ then coming back from a two week vacation and going into the holiday season? But no matter, it is lovely and once I find a tiny enough screwdriver and can put batteries in my new light, I'm pumped to ride to work (gonna take me less than 15 minutes now!) and perhaps ride it over the Golden Gate bridge - there will be photographic evidence of my exercise! Besides a lock, bell, toolkit, and back and front lights, what other bike essentials do I need? I'm already debating the merits of a front v rear basket. Because sweaty backs from bags are not the awesome.

So, it is Day 2, and I'm already passing the buck. But I wanted to share this great post from one of my favorite people, Anne. Anne and I met just under 4 years ago at a non-profit tech conference in Atlanta and after a fateful meeting in an international meetup session, we were conference besties who kept in touch. The reasons I think she's tops are numerous: she's smart, makes her own costumes, has fabulous style, and is a deep and passionate thinker. Plus, she knits sweaters for her spirit animals. But it is more about her deep and passionate thinking that I want to highlight. Her post on feminism is truly worth a read. My name is Tatiana and bloody oath, I'm a feminist, too.

Another November, another rededication to writing. I only know of 2 people who will likely ready this (Hi, Maggie! What up, Cecilia!) but as much as I love friends and family, I've been thinking about writing more outside of work any way. Even just the simple exercise of opening this page once a day to dump some sort of nugget from my brain keeps my writing muscles flexed. So, things I'll be talking about, at least for the next month: recent purchases (for some reason, there are lot), getting healthy, trip to Ireland, plans for Thanksgiving in San Francisco, and more. Here's to November.
