Day three marks the point where this project starts to become an inconvenience, and I started to slip. Waking up late, I was pretty much pressured into grabbing a foil wrapped breakfast sandwich from our evil slayter market if I wanted some kind of food in my body. After my classes ended, I walked down to the Mitchell center to hop on a giant coach bus to head over to Kenyon College for a lacrosse game. This was all out of my power, but I felt bad for not following through with my goals for the week. However, I did skip out on eating lunch on campus so I wouldn’t be too full to waste any of my bus food. That did feel like a success.
Today, the project felt like It was limiting my everyday actions. I had lost that sense of encouragement and excitement I had on the first day. It takes a lot of extra energy, focus, and even money to make sustainable choices and that is why our society is operating in the wasteful manner that it is.
