Guys, in the past couple of weeks I did two things I’ve never done before.
I wrote to a councillor regarding the city transport plan, and I sent in feedback about the transport plan to Auckland Transport.
It was scary. But it feels good.
It’s interesting how some of my peers are getting noticeably more political – the city’s growing and changing and for the first time I think a lot of us feel that politics actually affects us and our lives.
This week’s links
I cried a couple of times this week: once while watching I Am Big Bird (recommended) and while reading this Esquire piece by a husband recounting the last few months of his wife’s life before she died from cancer
I was so fascinated by this advice column on settling in relationships (mostly, the crazy insightful comments, moreso than the actual column)
Finally, a mainstream piece about the reality of renting in Auckland. EVERY. SINGLE. WORD. OF. THIS.
This so perfectly sums up all my feelings about the new Avengers film

Way to go for having your voice heard!!
I signed up for the AC’s People’s Panel: http://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/EN/AboutCouncil/HaveYourSay/Pages/PeoplesPanel.aspx?utm_source=shorturl&utm_medium=print&utm_campaign=Peoples_Panel
Doesn’t take long to take the surveys, and though I have very little time to volunteer anywhere these days, it makes me feel like I’m giving back in one small way.
I also highly recommend the Transport Blog: http://transportblog.co.nz/. Awesome and always interesting content. The latest post describes some of the changes impacting the city’s skyline in the next few years.
Yep I’m on that panel. And read TB religiously every day.
Thank you so much for the link love!!
