Today I went to class for an hour and 20 minutes, then spent the rest of the day outdoors because I was at a track meet. However, my meet was at Wooster which is a two hour drive away. That used a lot of gas, but I think that spending 6 hours outside without using electricity evened that out. At the end of the day, the team dinner was pizza, so we had a lot of waste pizza boxes and napkins. The meet itself produced a minimal amount of waste; the only disposable items used were cups for water and bags for ice.
This morning I would count as pretty successful because I took a reusable cold-cup to Slayter for my iced coffee. I think I’m going to bring that to Slayter more often because I usually start my day with an iced coffee, which produces a lot of waste.
As for showers, my day has been super long but I managed to keep my shower at 6 minutes. I think what Dr. Aguilar said about listening to music in the shower helps me to keep track of time better, so I’ve been trying that.
Overall, I think today went a little better than yesterday. I’ve been able to keep the fan in my room off, despite the hot weather and my room being on the third floor. Each day I can progress a little more, so I think by the end of the week I’ll be sticking to my goals.
