Well, it's halftime in 2007.
Just two classes and one project left, and I'll be done with my Masters in Urban Planning this December.
I'm 6 weeks into my internship with Debra Shore at the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District. It's been very interesting so far - I've met some great people and had a chance to study cutting edge environmental problems like pharmaceuticals in wastewater, combined sewer overflows, and other water issues.
My plantar fasciitis is getting better, although I won't be able to run for a few more weeks still. Stretch your calves!
Church stuff continues to be a real source of fun and intellectual challenge. What should a church do to remain relevant and important in an urban neighborhood?
So, whats next?
For the first time since 1999, I'll be looking full-time for a full-time job this summer. I am focusing my search in the following ways:
- Government or *well-funded* non-profit agencies that serve the public and improve quality of life
- Political campaigns for progressive Democratic candidates who care about urban issues
- Companies that solve important problems or reduce people's suffering, while not being evil
- Strategy and Planning
- New Initiatives
- Business Development
- Within Chicago city limits
Wish me luck!
