Today was a better day. I woke up and remembered about not turning the lights , it was hard since it wasn’t that sunny in the morning, but still I was able to get ready without any lights on. My shower was 5 minutes in warm water, not cold but not too hot so it was average, but the timing was great and I was proud that I was able to get a shower in five minutes. I went to my classes and didn’t use the elevator at all and now when I got into Fellows I remembered about opening the manual door. After that I went back into my room and started homework with no lights at all. It was great, although I found myself falling asleep every once in a while but I was able to manage it. I was worried that maybe my roommate might get in and turn them off but that didn’t happen. She got in and left the lights off.=)
The only bad thing of my day was that I was really excited about going to mealex with my re-usable container, and after making the really long line for the salad I asked the lady in charge if she could put my salad in my container. I explained it was for a project, and that I was trying to be as sustainable as possible, and she said no. I was angry and confused I couldn’t understand in what way that might affect them? So I guess that there will be no mealex for the week.. I was proud of my use of light until really late at night when I only turned on my lamp because it was getting kind of impossible to read. And also I couldnt believe that I only threw one thing in the trash! I was able to achieve my goal about trash for the day ! It was really hard but I was able to do it. I hope this week continues getting better and Meal-ex figures out something to do for their containers.
