The day was going well – no accidental napkin usage, only chicken at lunch, power strip off – when I went back to my room for a nap before lab. I turned on the lights so I wouldn’t trip over the shoes which are perpetually strewn across my floor. After moving the shoes, I collapsed onto my bed and began to doze off WITH THE LIGHTS ON. WHAT THE HECK MAN??? Fortunately, this realization occurred before I was completely knocked out, and I got up to turn them off.
The weird part is that before NIW, I probably would have disregarded the issue and continued to nap. It has made me more aware of my wasteful habits. Perhaps it will cure me of some of them.
