I have realized that I am just terrible at this project! However, I think I am getting better. This morning my roommate got out of bed and immediately flipped on the light switch. But, I quickly dove out of bed and flipped the switch off and saved the day! “Remember I’m doing this No Impact thing this week,” I told her. She rolled her eyes and proceeded to get dressed in the dark.
I also managed to take a two minute and 45 second shower today– a pretty impressive feat if I do say so myself. And I really paid close attention to my water usage throughout the day, being careful not to waste.
However, I did drive to Newark today for lunch. I find that the hardest part of this project for me to meet is the food. Either my food is packaged, not local, or I have to drive to get it. To meet this project completely, I would have to completely alter the way I eat. And I really don’t feel that I can do that in the college setting. If I lived on my own and there were a good farmer’s market in town, I would definitely be able to do better!
