Waking up late (as usual), I decided to skip the shower for the day and just put my hair back, so a win for water usage today. I went to class and then went to Curtis for lunch; with my more relaxed goals to just incorporate local foods into my diet instead of eating mostly local food, I had much more success today. I still ate vegetarian, but I managed to incorporate 3 different local foods (cheese on a sandwich, granola and yogurt) into my meal. Following my last class of the day, I convinced one of my friends to walk to the Going Green store (with an incentive of River Road coffee for her) as it was a beautiful day and I hadn’t been in the store in a couple months. I bought some local yogurt and local honey so I could have a healthy snack for when I inevitably stay up late the rest of the week. Supporting a local business, relatively local farms (the organic yogurt is from Pennsylvania and the honey is from Mount Vernon, Ohio), and getting a little relaxing ho-hum into my day by walking in the sunshine with my friend all made the trip more than worthwhile. Dinner was also a vegetarian and local food success, this time at Huffman. This week, I’ve managed to only drink water, since it takes a lot more water to make things like juice and soda. I feel the food aspect is getting a lot easier!
In other news, I unplugged all my electronics (phone and laptop chargers) before I left the room, and only charged both my laptop and phone when they were almost dead. I did have issues with trash a little today, accidentally grabbing napkins out of habit and forgetting to bring a hand towel with me to A-Quad to use to dry my hands instead of paper towels. I also tend to use my laptop instead of using the computers in a lab or at the library, which I should be doing instead. There’s still definitely room for improvement!
Good luck everyone!
