Yikes, it's been a long November! This semester's wrapping up, though. One more and I'll be a real bona fide Urban Planner, just waiting for someone to employ my skillful self.

This thing is happening in Ann Arbor where people are starting to realize that homeless folks live here! And that it's really cold in Michigan. And that one underresourced warming center can't take care of them all.

It is BLOWING their MINDS.

Reading live tweets of the A2 council meetings always makes me angry in a really unproductive way, so I try not to read them. Besides, it's like being nerdy but not being nerdy enough to actually be out there and be cool and live tweet things myself. Well, I learned about investment analysis all day and now I have two kittens sleeping on top of me, so I'm not going anywhere.

Really I should be following and getting angry about Ypsilanti council meetings, but you know how it is. With any luck we'll be moving to Detroit in May, consolidating our current regional existences, and it's hard to get invested. I am adamant that when we stop moving I will have a garden, and then I will feel quite literally rooted in one place.

Goodnight, people I don't agree with. Goodnight, NIMBYers and nerds. Goodnight, people whose toes freeze in tents. Goodnight, streetlights and bus rides and cyclists braver than me and light-strung trees and city streets.
