Sustainable Tuesday: Unsustainable Things

In honor of Nanowrimo being next month I thought I would take today to write as many words as possible even though I’m tired. I’m starting at 5:47.

Speaking of Nanowrimo, if you followed me because of it, I will be posting updates on Sundays.

So the title of this post is because I thought why not talk about things that I find unsustainable and why I think that.

1 : My blog…

A. Yes. Sadly with Nanowimo coming up my blog will be hard to sustain. Don’t worry I’ll still be posting as normal.

B. I have started working on Thursdays. I may have a job on most Wednesday’s and some Fridays. And hopefully soon I’ll be housekeeper of an Air BnB. So my habit of writing the post just before I publish them is starting to get unsustainable.

2 : Makeup.

A. My wallet can’t afford any makeup. Especially the super nice, sustainable, kind. My skin is mostly clear and so I don’t care.

B. If you ask me about Sunscreen I have opinions on that subject that could be a blog post by themselves.

3 : Movies and Shows

A. Having a TV. It can really eat up your time. Even if you have it on for background noise, I find that the visuals are super distracting. Play some music or get an audio book instead.

B. Going to the Movies. Not only do you have the cost of the ticket, but often people make a special trip. If you must go, don’t get a snack, I’ve heard that movie theatre popcorn is one of the most expensive things you can buy per once.

4 : Having food made for you

A. Visiting restaurants. Maybe my mom is a good cook. Maybe I have annoying dietary restrictions. But often when I visit a restaurant I come home thinking I could have easily made something just as good for less money. Sometimes I feel like I could have even done better. So why eat out.

B. Having food delivered. This has all the problems of the visiting a restaurant, but now you also have a lot of trash and maybe dishes to wash. Yeah, no.

C. (Yay finally a C) Buying prepared food. There is really no occasion to buy pre-prepared. It is either more expensive and keeps less long. Or it doesn’t taste as good. Or is full of really odd chemicals. Except for granola, fruit, chia, nut, etc. bars (these can be a bit difficult to make) everything is simple enough to make at home.

5 : Not Being educated.

I don’t mean you must go to college and get a degree. I mean do you due diligence. Learn all you can about things before you start talking about doing them. If you want to get solar power, make sure you have enough money to pay the massive start up costs. If you want to go vegan, make sure to know what you need to eat. Just be educated, your degree doesn’t matter nearly as much as what you know.

I’ve written just over 500 words and it is now 6:14, I think this bodes well for next month. If you have actually read through all my ramblings, thank you. That is so nice. I don’t know why you did so if you wouldn’t mind leaving me a comment explaining I would be grateful.

Awhile ago I mentioned changes would be coming to my blog. So far they are pretty minor, but I’ve seen them. To be honest I don’t know how I want my blog to change. I’ve cut down on how many people are following me. I may be putting together a little giveaway soon.

It’s not really been mentioned on here, but I’ve recently started a booktube channel and so that will be cutting down on my free time. I have fairly big sewing plans this month. I’m re purposing so much fabric. And yeah, work exists.

Looking forward to not getting any comments.

But for those crazy people who may be still interested I’m now at 6:22 and a word count of 676.

 

 

Side question how much would you pay for a super awesome sustainable Blue Jean Skirt?
