My last day went better than any previous day. I had no issues avoiding plastic products, kept my lights off at all times and was out of my room almost all day, and I was never in a vehicle. I took a super short 2 min shower, and was killin it overall (ended the day with a total of 2 small pieces of trash).
Today was not a terrible day. I avoided plastic, tissues, and paper towels once again, and I was pretty stationary on campus up until 5pm, when I was driven to Newark to do a recording session with classmates for our final project in Sound Editing and Recording. But when it comes to being in a studio for hours on end working on a song, you get very hungry.
The story of day 3 was avoidance. I avoided eating at slayter or buying anything from slayter, I avoided tissues and paper towels (even if I really needed them), and avoided plastic that was seemingly everywhere I looked. But the one thing I sadly could not avoid were vehicles. I had my Sound Editing and Recording class in Newark and we always have to commute to the recording studio via a campus van.
Day two wasn’t too good to me. My spring allergies sprung to new heights and I was sneezing all day long. Plus, my shower went over my time limit, I had to use the fan in my room, I used lights in my room without even thinking about it, and I was forced into using plastic to eat lunch and dinner.
My first day of No Impact Week was one of bad habits. I woke up and was running late and had to take a quick shower, so finishing my shower under 3 minutes wasn’t as hard as I thought it’d be. Also reminded myself not to use any lights and kept the window shade way up to bring in that good ol’ natural sunlight.
