    I have recently found out that my biggest contribution to feeling happy is when I am hiking. I am doing an active activity while I am being social with my friends in the most beautiful surroudings. I feel more and more happy the higher I get to up to the top of a mountain. Moreover, I love that you can really just walk in your own bobble and reflect over your life.

    How is electricity generated where you live? How does it impact the environment, animals, and humans?

    I believe that it does not have the biggest impact, it could be worse. I live in a bigger house in a surburban area. However, we live 10 girls in the house which is a lot of people using electricity which can have a high impact.

    Nature Spend Time Outside
    Rachel Carson said that we need the beauty and mysteries of the natural world for our spiritual and emotional development. Does that ring true for you? What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time indoors?

    That rings very true to me. I have never experienced such peace in life as when I spend time in the nature. The more beautiful the nature is the more I have the need to experience it. Thus, when I am in the Alps in the wintertime and in Hawaii for my exhange semester now, I am out most of the time enjoying the nature, as it is so breathtaking.

    Nature Enjoy the Sunrise/Sunset
    Father Thomas Berry says, "... our primary purpose is celebration. Celebration of the dawn and the sunset and the different seasons of the year is a religious ritual, a way in which humans can establish their integral relationship with the universe, with the planet Earth." What is your response to Berry's assertion?

    When I watch a sunrise/sunset I go in a trance, and enjoy the moment to the full every time. It is an amazing experience every time, and I feel closure to Earth every time I see the sun set or rise. Thomas Berry is abselutly right.

    I am doing more and more car-pooling, so instead of me taking the car alone to school, i am sharing car with my friends for class so we instead fill up 1 car instead of 3.
