Today was a lot harder than yesterday. I got back from class tired and hungry. All I wanted to do was eat a Luna Bar and take a nap. As I reach for my granola bar, I realize that eating this granola bar would create waste. Ugh, what do I do when EVERYTHING is packaged and I’m hungry? In this instance, I turn away from my delicious granola bar, get in bed, and decide to wait for dinner at Curtis.
Looking back at this, I realize No Impact week takes more planning than I thought. At dinner, I took apples to keep in my room for a snack. No Impact week takes a lot of self control.
Despite struggling to not snack, I was very successful with shortening my showering time and keeping my lights off throughout the day. Hopefully, I will continue to improve throughout the week and keep cutting out unnecessary energy use.
