The last day of No Impact has finally arrived, and I have to say that I am very relieved that it is coming to an end. That is not to say that I did not learn a lot from it, but I have definitely been frustrated at many points over the course of the week. I am really, really looking forward to taking a shower longer than a minute tomorrow morning.
Another thing that I have really missed is being able to drive. I know that it is technically still No Impact week until the end of today, but I have decided to treat myself and a friend to a steak dinner in Easton tonight to celebrate completing the week. Most of all, I’m going just because it sounds awesome and I haven’t had a steak in well over a month. I think we might also catch a movie…So today is definitely going to be my worst.
Although I am being really bad about conserving tonight, I feel really good about what I have accomplished this week. I have shown myself that I AM capable of living fairly comfortably with very little waste. I only broke my goal of no plastics twice, and my goal of no meat once. Otherwise, I was very happy that I didn’t drive at all, and also pleased that I was able of keeping my shower time as low as I did. In the end, I am very happy that I participated in this experiment.
