I am officially posting about taking a public hiatus from my blog. Actually both of them, including my running blog. I feel I am at a point where I will not publicly post things I want to write about right now, nor do I want to be the blogger that posts random, unrelated junk all over my blog. Hopefully I will get back to it soon, and my very few readers can continue reading my musings.

Take care,

Living in a Smarter City.

My friend, Jamie, recently wrote about a certain company's "eco"-wannabe marketing ways. You can check it out here. Her blog triggered my eco-friendly passion, and I wanted to throw out a super cool fact about the place I call home.

Most of my eco-friendly ways were started while I attended college at the University of North Texas. Living in a progressive city only fueled my self-responsibility to the planet. After living here for 15 years, I am a resident beaming with pride to say I live in one of the top green cities in the America. Cited by the National Resource and Defense Council (NRDC), Denton, Texas is considered one of America's 2010 Smarter Cities.

Side note: Another cool fact is that Texas (a major oil and natural gas state) has four, yes I said four,
Smarter Cities.

Eco-friendly is more than a trend here; it is a permanent lifestyle. We aren't all "hippies" here in the "Little D", but I can guarantee you can find "crop-sharing" in the middle of town, more bike/walk routes, ways to recycle, and energy-efficient buildings all in this quaint "town" that Dentonites love.
