Today was a huge improvement over yesterday, as I was able to cut down on my shower time by a minute to a little over 3 minutes, and I used no lights in the morning. I also tried to spend as much time outside today, and 1 class and the weather certainly helped out with that. I was also able to improve on my energy consumption by spending less time on my computer and in my room, since I was in the library for a few hours catching up on some online work, rather than having to use my laptop and charge it twice, which I sometimes tend to do. I do feel a bit guilty about using the elevator and having the fan on in my room right now, but I joined other people in the elevator, and I’m working in my room right now, plus it gets really really hot in here.
My meals were certainly an improvement, as I continued to eat meat only once today and I was able to find a good salad to substitute for meat, so I may try to eat that again tomorrow. However, although I tried to stay away from meat today, the chicken parm at lunch looked pretty good and I hadnt eaten all day. Despite this, I feel pretty good about my food choices today, as I ate some food that didn’t require packaging and used my own bowl, which I carry around in my backpack, at the muslim week thing on A-quad, where they had free food.
All in all, pretty good day for No Impact week. Hoping tomorrow gets even better!
