We are the 99%

It’s a warm, sunny Saturday here in lovely Los Angeles. And while I’ve been spending most of my days this week in front of my computer, trying to figure out how to make a living doing something I really love and care about, today I came outside to check out the new movement gaining momentum across the globe: Occupy Wall Street. Ahh yes, instead of being home alone in front of the computer, I am writing from the south lawn of City Hall at the Occupy LA movement. I even took my bike and the metro, which was fun in-and-of-itself!

I’ve seen a lot of inspiring things here today and it feels good to be out in solidarity with others. Learn more and check it out. I’m glad I did.
