Weekly Wrap-UP # 76 – Travel

Sunday, October 26th, 2003 | Blog Exercises | Comments Off on Weekly Wrap-UP # 76 – Travel

  1. What is the most essential item you include in your suitcase when you travel? Why? Toothbrush and ID (Passport most times)… Toothbrush cuz ya gotta be lookin your best wherever you are – and ID in case you get your tail in the gate and forget who ya are! :):)
  2. What is the least essential item you include in your suitcase when you travel? Why? A heavy jacket – layers always works for me and it just takes up room… its all about traveling light.. every time I’ve brought more than my leather jacket I’ve never worn it..
  3. How early do you start packing for a big trip (say, a week)? Why so early or so late? I always pack the night before (or the morning of if its an afternoon flight.. Otherwise I find that I just have to bust into what I’ve packed and re-do it anyway so whats the point… If its a big trip I make lists ahead of time but don’t pack till the last minute.
  4. What do you pack in your carry-on bag if you’re flying? If you’ve never flown, estimate what you’d pack. I pack a few toiletries (in case my flgihts get f**ked up and I need to freshen up – and I take a lot of entertainment (I get bored easily).. Books.. magazines.. cards… computer… iPod… If its a shorter flight usually just a book or two..
  5. What kind of stuff do you (or would you) pack if you were traveling with a child for a three-hour flight? Don’t have a kid but I’d imagine I’d pack the same that I pack for me since I have the same attention issues that kids do! 🙂 – lots of distractions and enterainment.. If it was a baby I’d also include the usual baby stuff – food / formula / diapers… If it were a toddler or young elementary age kid I’d probably add some candy or chewing gum – helps with the pressure changes during take off and landing..

Weekly Wrapup #75 – Saving Your Life

Sunday, October 19th, 2003 | Blog Exercises | 2 Comments
  1. Describe how much you agree or disagree with the idea that journals and blogs are a way to “save” your life?
    I think it depends very much on the blog. I’ve read some blogs that are VERY much that – opportunities to chronicle someone’s life… Others are opportunites to provide others with information and less personal.. And some are a little of both. I think the thing that journals have over blogs is journals are much more private and I’d be much more inclined to document EVERYTHING of importance in my life if others weren’t reading it. As it stands I censor myself because I know the people I might write about could possibly read it.
