The last day of No Impact was good, but a little tough. I was invited to go out to dinner with my friends tonight. So all five of us hopped in the car and drove out to Bob Evans. I was excited since I hadn’t been invited to go to eat all week. However, as soon as we sat down the waitress served us water with each of our own individual straws.
I think I’m finely getting the hang of no impact week. Today went very smoothly in terms of following my goals. What stood out to me today was that the hallway light outside of my dorm is always on. Therefore, I went to the switch to turn it off. However, every time I passed through the hallway the light magically was back on.
Today has been exhausting. I started my daily as usual, in the dark and leaving the room by turning off all my power cords. I grabbed breakfast which was consisted of an apple and granola (in my reusable pouch). Once my first class was over I was feeling very tired from schoolwork and etc. so I made the decision to nap.
No Impact is officially in full swing! I woke up this morning, got dressed in the dark, and turned off my power strips. I think its going to become a new habit! I have started to recognize how many choices it takes to make a lesser impact. I am constantly checking myself with small decisions. Especially with one of my goals being to stop using social media, I moved all my social media apps onto a new page in my phone.
Hey guys- I had issues posting so here is my blog from yesterday.
Day one went pretty well I think! I have spent almost my entire day in common spaces on campus working on homework and meeting with friends. I also remembered to turn off my power strip before leaving this morning at 8am which I was pretty excited about.
