How A Night Owl Wakes Up Before Dawn

When I was younger, my favorite hobby was staying up all night. I was so good, I would stay up all night and still head to school in the morning only to crash when I came home. I did that all the way until I began college. I remember in high school, coming home, lying

Some Tips to Make Depression Bearable

I’ve had depression for half my life. Since I was 12, I’ve been diagnosed twice. I have chosen not to get treated or medicated for it. Instead, I have always wanted to “beat this thing.” Unfortunately, for a lot of us, it’s not ever going away. This is a reality that you have to face.

DAY 170 | Sleeping Naked is Green

Well this is the end of the daily changes. Over the next few days, I’ll be doing stories to run through my challenge and give updates on each one! This challenge was inspired by Vanessa Farquharson. In 2007, she had Green as a Thistle as a blog. She did a green change every single day

DAY 169 | MISSION: No Electricity

I’m doing another mini-mission tomorrow! I’m going to go the full day without electricity. Except to work on my laptop, I will not be plugging anything in. I will not be turning anything on. If my phone dies, then it dies. I am going to read a book, go outside, clean my room, go through

DAY 166 | Dish Liquid Bar Soap

Going with the soap theme, we arrive at the last one! For now on, instead of using dish liquid that comes in plastic, I will be using bar soap. You can use a bamboo scrub brush with the bar soap and that would work well. I’m going to be turning the bar soaps into liquid.

DAY 165 | Handsoap Bars

We are heading into a bar soap theme! Today’s change is using bar soap for handwashing only. This is the easiest bar soap you can find in stores and most are packaged in paper. And honestly, they’re cheap too. Winning!!!

DAY 164 | Shampoo Bars

Alrighty. It’s time to get into shampoo bars. I’m afraid of my hair being wrecked, but… I have been using a natural shampoo, so hopefully, it will be alright!! No more shampoo in plastic for me!
