I definitely agree with cocobean that I am much more alert when standing. I am a bio major at Uconn. I do all my reading/studying pacing back and forth or standing(yup, I'm that guy). My hips and back feel exponentially better on a day to day... (more)

For the past 5 months I've been an intern on a sustainable farm. My job allowed me to be extremely active and get tons of fresh air and sunlight. Now my internship is over, and I will be entering the conventional world filled with computer... (more)
