4P18: The Finish Line

So here I am, on the eve of my last environmental class.

I have to say that I wasn’t overly thrilled about the content of the class because research and the environment are not something I am passionate about. But truthfully, I learned a lot. Way more than I expected to take from it. I realized this when I was walking through the halls the other day. I had an empty coffee cup and I went to go throw it in the recycling but people were standing in front of the bin and I couldn’t really get around them. I ended up just throwing it in the garbage. As I was walking away, I felt a wave of guilt that I carried with me for the rest of the day.

I am actively thinking about the environment a lot more than I thought I would. I think that was the goal for this class. Not to mold us into environmentalists who are ready to quit school and fight the corporate suits, but to become AWARE. To critically look at whats happening around us, taking what we have learned and applying to issues outside the school walls.

It’s been swell 🙂
