May 30, 2019

From Goodreads:

Thirty-year-old Millie just can’t pull it together. Misanthropic and morose, she spends her days killing time at a thankless temp job until she can return home to her empty apartment, where she oscillates wildly between self-recrimination and mild delusion, fixating on all the little ways she might change her life. Then she watches TV until she drops off to sleep, and the cycle begins again.

When the possibility of a full-time job offer arises, it seems to bring the better life she’s envisioning – one that involves nicer clothes, fresh produce, maybe even financial independence – within reach. But with it also comes the paralyzing realization, lurking just beneath the surface, of just how hollow that vision has become.

Darkly hilarious and devastating, The New Me is a dizzying descent into the mind of a young woman trapped in the funhouse of American consumer culture.

CCCG Plant a Tomato, Give a Garden Event – May 14, 2019

May 14, 2019

CCCG Plant a Tomato, Give a Garden Event Flier

 

Join the North Carolina Botanical Garden to help celebrate National Public Gardens Week at the Carolina Campus Community Garden (CCCG) on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 from 10-11:15 a.m. to plant a tomato, give a garden! With the generous support of the Employee Forum and Carolina Center for Public Service, we will be repotting individual tomato seedlings to contribute to food security for CCCG recipients.

Visit the Plant a Tomato, Give a Garden event webpage for details and to RSVP by May 10, 2019! Space is limited. We will establish a waitlist once the event is full.

We welcome interested UNC employees and units/departments from across campus to gather their workgroup to bond through service to their community. Please remember that all UNC staff have community service leave available to use for events like this; supervisor approval is required. For details, see the FAQ’s on the RSVP webpage.

Tomato sandwiches and water will be provided for all volunteers to enjoy. There will also be garden tours following the event for those who would like to learn more about the CCCG and how it serves the UNC community.

The CCCG is located on the UNC campus at 200 Wilson Street (near the Carolina Inn). There will be limited parking set aside in the Nash Lot across from the CCCG for those needing to drive. Walking or biking to the event is the best option for most employees on campus, however. There are also numerous public transportation options available via Chapel Hill Transit.

The rain date for the event is Thursday, May 16.
