Well, day two has already started better than yesterday. I must say though, after the somewhat rough morning yesterday the day turned out better. Well, except for my brief car ride across campus (East to the sunnies), which afterward I immediately regretted. I even went for a run outside instead of walking to the gym and using the treadmill. I also was able to minimize my shower time to five minutes (although still hot). So, all in all, I would say that I am feeling pretty good. Today I have been very good about not making the mistakes I did yesterday. I ate low on the food chain at breakfast and managed not to blow dry my hair. I am also looking to enjoy some ho-hum time today. I wonder if I will feel like Professor Aguilar did during her allotted ho-hum time….and I am guessing I will; I probably will feel like I should be doing something else and that makes me sad. Its sad to me that out society has become a society that must always be on the go. Well regardless, my goal is to turn of all electronics during this “ho-hum” time and really just relax. Well, I’ll let you know how it goes.
Also, Something I have really begun to enjoy about this project is explaining it to people. A couple of people have asked my why I am doing something a certain way etc. and then in turn, I explain to them about No-Impact week and what it entails. I think I have really enjoyed sharing this project with people because it is so inspiring and proves to other people that change can happen on an individual level.
