Now that I’m without a job, I’ll have more time for reading, commenting, and writing. And job finding. I just started reading these two blogs today and they’re quite exciting. Both blogs started this year.

- Sustainability Studies at Roosevelt University – The “official” blog for “Chicago’s first sustainability BA program” at Roosevelt University. Lots of talk about local (Chicago) events and issues. Sustainable urban planning is a secondary interest of mine, thanks to my Sustainable Development Techniques class at UIC.
