Speaking of Comfort Zones...

Life on a ship isn't necessarily the glamorous lifestyle that some might make it out to be. There are some perks: you never have to make your bed, you never have to do your laundry, you don't have to cook for yourself and your view is the beautiful ocean all day long.

The downsides are the fact that someone else is coming in your room to make your bed, you stink more often than not because you do a lot of re-wearing of the few clothes in your possession, you don't get to cook for yourself and not only do you not have a view from your windowless dwellings, but the churning of the waves outside matches perfectly with the churning of your tummy.

The hardest thing so far has been focusing on all the filming and footage-sorting that we need to do while adjusting to life in closed, moving quarters with 1000 of your soon-to-be-closest friends.

We've officially nicknamed the media room that we dump and sort all of our footage in the "eagle's nest" since it's on deck 6, but after spending two days in there logging our footage, I prefer it's other nickname, "the vomit closet."

We've decided to test out a new way of telling the stories of the Unreasonable companies on the ship, so I will be following closely with One Earth Designs to try and share their vision for a better world.

We're on our way to Hawaii and will be arriving in Hilo on January 15. First stop will be a snack location to get ourselves some tasty treats for our room. We've found that we've been hungrier than we've ever been. I wonder if its the motion of the ship having our bodies work overtime or something.
