Today was a tough one. Today I had class from 8:30 – 4:30. I did not eat lunch or breakfast, and when I look back on my decisions now and realized I should have probably eaten breakfast. After class I was so exhausted I took a nap and woke up just over thirty minutes ago. After waking up from my nap, starved and hungry as ever, I almost ate an entire box of “Captain Crunch- Crunch Berries”. That might not have been the healthiest or most environmentally conscious decision but I was so hungry and all the dining halls but Slayter were closed so I didn’t really have an option.
On the bright side of things I did not produce waste of any kind today, and have barely used any electricity, since the only time i’ve been in my room today up till now the lights have been off. As I check my emails I realize that I have a package waiting for me. Im not sure whether I should get it tomorrow or wait until saturday when no impact week is over (that way I don’t have trash). However what is inside the package is what is making this decision so hard.
Waiting for me is my belated birthday present. AIAIAI’s tma-1 Fools Gold edition studio headphones. For those who don’t know these are pretty nice headphones. I know that the minute I get that package all I am going to want to do is be on my computer making music and listening to music all day long. Also there is bound to be a considerable amount of trash in the package too. From wrapping paper to little plastic do-hickies.
Overall today was really slow and rough, and I am probably going to go to sleep in the next hour or so but before I do so I am most likely going to watch a Doctor Who episode, I think I deserve it. The struggle is too real.
Side note I found this hilarious clip from Portlandia about recycling. Its WAY less risqué then the Captain Planet video I promise!
