So far the easiest goal that I’ve been able to achieve is shortening my shower time. I think this is the easiest because I am most conscious of it. Each time I shower I consciously think to my self that I need to make it quick. I also think this is easier because showering, although nice, isn’t as much of a luxury as the use of energy. The hardest goal to achieve, personally, is reducing the energy I use. I normally use energy for most of my day, it gives me entertainment, allows me to do homework, and keep in contact with people from home. Cutting down on energy isn’t asking me to cut down on one part of my day, it is asking me to cut down on a lot of my day. Its hard to find another form of entertainment rather than using my computer to watch T.V. or not using the lights when its not necessary. The most challenging part of not using energy is shortening the amount of time I use my phone so I have to charge it less. Today, cutting down on trash was much easier than I thought it would be. I think that by learning about the trash sort I was able to realize what was necessary for me to use and what was not so necessary. I also realized the things I used to be throwing away should be composted. Cutting down on waste was definitely manageable and did not consume my day.
