Not much new happened today. Same thoughts and challenges.
I was a passenger on a 20 min car ride to and from an elementary school in Newark for big brothers big sisters. So that was probably my biggest impact. I was hyper aware, however, of the food the children ate in the school cafeteria. Today they had chocolate milk and cheese quesadillas and canned peaches. All on a styrofoam tray. I wish student lunches would be more nutritious, especially because they are at an age where the eating habits they form now will last. And why not reusable trays? I suppose it all comes down to funding.
Today I spent a little extra time talking with some friends instead of playing crosswords on my computer and tuning people out with headphones. Although I love crosswords, it was nice to not stare at the screen.
