 ===== My projects ===== ===== My projects =====
 These are projects (DIY, homemade, what have you) I've been working on the past few years or just started today. In 2010, I've realized that I spend too much money on DIY projects so going forward I need to pay more attention to intentions, goals, and most of all, my time and money. These are projects (DIY, homemade, what have you) I've been working on the past few years or just started today.

-==== Apartment ==== +
-  * Energy saving - All of the lights in my house, save for the ugly chandelier in the main room, are Compact Fluorescent Lights. CFLs for chandeliers are very expensive so I think I will remove the chandelier and replace it either with a different hanging lamp, or install a floor lamp that points its light towards the ceiling. I have a Kill-A-Watt to monitor the energy needs of our devices. The devices that never turn off? Router, switch and cable modem. +
-  * Planting - I planted nasturtium seeds in one pot and two spray-painted tin cans on May 23, 2010. [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/jamesbondsv/4637684446/in/photostream/|Photo]]. This kind of failed - none of the flowers have bloomed as of October 2010 To help beautify our tree-less sidewalk, my landlord bought a huge, portable pot and planted some flowers and a bush in it. +
-  * [[:apartment:Rain barrel]] - My landlord bought us a Suncast rain barrel on May 26, 2010. I need to install it now by cutting the downspout, attaching the flexible hose, and then attaching the cut off piece of downspout onto the flexible hose to direct the water into the rain barrel. +
-  * Composting - I created a compost bin on July 12, 2010, and filled it with moldy donuts, biscotti, and paper that wrapped a pound cake. I added veggie waste the next day to add different nutrients and some moisture. I shut down the compost bin a week later because I never bought any worms. They're expensive and I want to get some locally.+
