“…But what is The Plus Me project, again? Where is the event? At what time?”
I know, I know, it’s a dynamic economy, where everyone has so much to do!
And I know that rather than mustering up all the time and energy it’d take to get to the event, we can opt to spend the time working on something else!
Or better yet, that we can spend the time resting! Because of course, we deserve to rest (damn it)!
But time with The People of Jimbo Times is time with the soul.
It is time with the community, and time with all of the different worlds the people in the community come from, and time with all of the fascinating things they have to say and show us about where we’re going (together)!
So get this: The Plus Me Project is Los Angeles, and its event is located in downtown Los Angeles! At 501 North Main Street, to be exact, from 5:00 – 9:00 pm, Los Angeles!
For those friends who are truly unable to make it (since they’re halfway across the world in like Japan or something), it’s alright! But for the rest of you:
The time has come. AND WE. SEE. YOU!
A new year is a wonderful new beginning to consider, but there is always so much old business on my mind, regardless of what time it might be. This forces me to create time apart from what the calendar says, in a place far away from the rest of the world; an alternative space of life and deadlines, where my mind can run free from the boundaries of every day reality, to imagine and piece together another version of things. One might call such a wonder ‘a little ole me time’, or a ‘jimbo time’; indeed, one might call it…
With more soon,
It was a great time visiting the Cahuenga library with Roger King again. Per usual, the chess coach was in joyful spirits as he oversaw another gathering for some board-gamin’. For anyone interested, the chess club meets each Thursday at the Cahuenga library in East Hollywood from 4:00 – 5:30 pm. Parking is free, as is the awesome time with some members from the community! </:D
Today I had the pleasure of volunteering for the 2015 Model United Nations High School Conference at Occidental College! It was a blast, as I witnessed students debate about everything from how to distribute aid in war-locked zones, to how to prevent nuclear technology from getting in the hands of non-state actors, and so much more! The event was organized by the Model UN club at Oxy, in conjunction with the United Nations Association of Pasadena. To learn more about how you can get you or your high school involved, check out the UNA’s page HERE. I can assure you: you won’t regret it, as for students and organizers like, participating in Model UN is truly an unforgettable experience!
