    On the topic of waste I decided to look into sustainable fashion as the fashion industry produces a ton of waste. We ended up also discussing it in class on Thursday as well which was helpful. I did research into reasons for fast fashion and ways in which I can personally help reduce fashion waste. The biggest way I discovered to reduce fashion...

    Welche Rolle könnte ChatGPT in der Zukunft der Arbeit spielen? Die rasante Entwicklung der Künstlichen Intelligenz, insbesondere von Modellen wie ChatGPT, wirft interessante Fragen über die Zukunft der Arbeit auf. Während einige die KI als Bedrohung für traditionelle Arbeitsplätze sehen, betrachten andere sie als Chance für Innovation und...

    I have just recently been reflecting on my sleep schedule. Tonight being a large exception to a rule of going to bed at 12-1, that both me and my partner are not getting enough sleep. Just by going to bed and being in bed at 10:30, I saw immediate effects on my performance at work and my mood throughout the day. I was doing so much better just...

    This week I got up a little bit earlier than I normally do and, for the first time since the beginning of the term, I went to Stott field and watched the sunrise. I was reminded of early mornings in high school and driving to school. I think that being downtown has made it so that I am really busy and I get swept up so much in the...

    I got out of the habit of riding my bike but have recently gotten back into it. I really like going down to the south waterfront and around the city by bike. I often find that by biking I can get to more places faster than by walking or by bus (with some hilly exceptions) and I am generally more relaxed. Even though you are fairly exposed on a...

    I practice active listening quite often and find it really important to me to do so. I work very hard to be able to say the things I mean and mean the things I say but I find that I fill in the blanks too often and I think that that can come and bite me back. It is more important to not be waiting for your turn to speak and I think that that is...

    To build off of my last entry, I actually started using less water prior to my shower and found that it doesn't take as long as I thought it did to heat up. I am not exactly sure how to estimate how much water I saved by doing this but I did it and have tried to reduce my every-day showers to be a little bit shorter. I made the change to my...

    This week I decided to start putting a lot more of my items in the recycling and more carefully examining the things that go into my garbage. I am disappointed at how much non-medication stuff in there is made of plastic. I also have been trying to evaluate how much water I use during my showers. I have seen that my practice of letting the...

    For eco challenge 7, on consumerism, I decided to reflect on my own consumption and be more thoughtful of when and where I spend my money. Every time I've thought about buying something, I'll try to reflect on it - do I need this thing? Did I need this before I walked into the store, or do I just feel like I need it now that its in front of me?...

    I’ve been taking the streetcar to the climbing gym every morning instead of driving. It is only 3 miles. But I would like to think it makes a different over time.
