    I really want to learn new things. I can read on age of war game

    I chose the "skip the straw" eco-challenge. I'm already not super invested in always using them when I eat out. I do find them to be a largely unnecessary technology for already clean containers. And I'm also suspect of reusable ones, as I've read much about them being ripe pockets for bacteria and mold. Where I can, I opt to not use...

    I chose the "5-minute showers" eco challenge, as it's something I've wanted to maintain for a long while now. While that is quite difficult to do for sessions that I'd like to wash my hair, for the everyday shower, I've found it very manageable. And truly preferable. Making it an automatic and efficient process saves me some often...

    I often use Uber to get myself where to go, which is costly and not as mindful in regards to minimizing car transport. I chose the "walk instead" option in the eco challenge, which also encouraged me to seek closer options, as opposed to going to my usual stores far where from where I live. This touches on my grocery shopping,...

    I chose the "eat mindfully" eco challenge, which involved putting down my usual means of entertainment. Admittedly, I was drawn to supplement my attention with eating in a place of aesthetic nourishment. Went to a park near to where I live. Found myself enjoying my meal measurably more than previous and with that, the pleasure of...

    I did this whole term walking to campus instead of driving, i really liked the transit system that we have it helped me move through the city and i feel stronger as well

    i went to an indoor farmers market and i was buying from local people and i realized it helps not only promoting healthy and clean eating but also help our economy week 7

    i was reading about how it takes 3,000 to 6,000 gallons of water to power one light bulb left on 12 hours a day for a year. Turn out the lights and save both water and energy! and it motivated me to turn off my light

    I really continued to focus on my time in nature this break. Being back home allowed for that connection back to these familiar nature spaces and to be alone. It was very comforting and calming and allowed for me to deal with the stress of finals and making a movie. All of these things pilling up at the end of the term and over the break was...

    This weekend I spent at least an hour outside each day. I did a combination of finding local parks to walk through, and walking around my neighborhood. This is not something super new for me, but I often forget to do this and spend a lot of time indoors. Its very nice to get fresh air, and a nice walk. This definitely something I will keep...
