My blog is so funny in that I can go from drug testing for welfare recipients to a clothing swap party. Hey, life’s all about being balanced, right?
This clothing swap is open to young female bloggers in the Triangle. After the event, we’ll have each girl blog about the best item she received Haven’t joined the group yet? Contact me!
Updated: The Wine Feed, a Raleigh-based online wine retailer, has offered to sponsor the swap party! Several wine varieties will be available to sip on throughout the evening
I’m in an interesting state of limbo right now. It’s not particularly bad, just weird. Graduation- and the chaos of graduation weekend- is over and I’m spending a few days in North Carolina. It’s difficult to express my emotions right now, so I’ll stick to a play-by-play of my activities
So far I’ve: looked at cars on Craigslist; talked to the bank about a loan; taken my first legitimate ride on the R-Line bus; watched the awful train wreck of a movie called No Strings Attached; and submitted an apartment application. I’m now sitting in Morning Times, a cute (and indie) downtown coffeeshop, waiting to hold a meeting about a co-working space in Raleigh. I’m not quite sure the agenda of the conversation, but I’m excited to see where it goes.
I also got an email from the SWAP Team about becoming a Chapter Director in Raleigh. Essentially, I would organize and execute clothing swap parties, which encourage recycling and donating of clothing, conscious consumerism, and “upcycling.” It seems like it would be a great way to get involved in the community, meet interesting people…and of course get cute (and free) “new” clothes!
