    I hope to learn from this course how to live more sustainably whether it is by food consumption, water usage, reduction in car transportation usage (carpool more or other means of transportation), and others. A goal of mine towards food consumption is to eat more locally and organically. I want to know where my food is coming from and do my due diligence in making sure the food I consume does not travel far from where I will purchase it. Also, for water usage I do not want to waste any unnecessary water usage. For example, I do not want to leave the water running when I brush my teeth. I need to learn to turn the water off after I wet my tooth brush to brush my teeth instead of leaving it on the whole time I brush my teeth. Lastly, for transportation I need to find an alternative solution to driving alone to campus every day. Carpooling with someone from where I live will reduce my carbon footprint by a little. These are the three main things I will be focusing on this semester.
