Surfing the Interwebs

My main method to surfing through the great and overwhelming interwebs has been previously discussed as google reader. I can’t get enough of that blog aggregator. It is my organized method of tackling information chaos during my breaks throughout the day. This morning I took the time to organize my reader and discovered some interesting things about myself. My main areas of interest are as follows: Design, DIY, Food, News, Gardening, Sewing, Humor, Art/Insight. I have spent the last couple months reflecting on my future and the career path I’m interesting in pursuing beyond my current position. Based on my blog interests, I can picture some highly entertaining positions in my future: DIY Humorist Editor (regretsy anyone?), Designer of garden quilts, Artist specializing in food. We’ll see where I end up. For now, I have a lovely new layout to read my blogs.

Havard School of Public Health’s Pyramid

It would be nice if the USDA got it together and stopped providing subsidies for red meat, corn and soy (to feed the red meat) and started promoting whole grains and fruits/vegetables. From all my research on nutrition thus far, this pyramid only starts to address the woeful inadequacies in our western diets and grocery stores. It’s a shame that so many people are unhealthy because there isn’t enough access to nutritious foods. Move those subsidies USDA!
