College life

Hello everyone! This time, I'll talk about college life, And well.. When i remember my school life, i remember having a lot of friends and having a lot of fun every single day... Now i'm in college, and it's way too different, don't get me wrong.. My point is that in college you get to know a LOT of people, but you don't get to make a lot of real friends. College life is a totally different experience than the one from school, but i think it's one of the most important stages in our lives.

Goin' green!! - It's easier than you think



Sup folks!! It's been a long time.. This time I'll share some important info about environment.. Read it if you want to, but I highly recommend you to do it!! It's an article I found on the internet and i think it's worth reading, 'cause seriously folks, let's take care of our home!!!

And here's the info YOU NEED TO READ:


Here are a few practical things you can start doing today. It’s important to mention this list is just a start. There are many, many other ways to go green.

Use energy wisely. Use compact fluorescent bulbs at your work place. Power down your computers when not in use. Turn all your lights off when you leave at the end of the day. Don’t forget about your computer, your monitor, your printer, your photocopier and other equipment. Don’t use air conditioning if the heating is on.  Interesting fact: office computers waste one billion dollars worth of electricity each year by being left on when they are not in use.

Reduce your paper waste. Print only when it is necessary. Use digital files. Reuse mailers, old documents for faxes, scrap paper and drafts and recycle papers after use. Review any documents online instead of printing them out. Reuse envelopes by using stickers. Interesting fact: the average U.S. office worker goes through 10,000 sheets of copy paper a year.

Use minimum artificial light. When sun is out, open your blinds and enjoy daylight. If your desk is far from a window, move it towards a window (when possible), it helps cut down electricity use - saving the environment and money.

“Eat Green”. Bring a ceramic mug and reusable knife, fork and spoon. So you don’t have to use disposable cups and plastic cutlery.  Bring your home-made lunch in a plastic reusable container instead of aluminum foil and plastic bags. It is much healthier, cheaper and “greener”.

Maximize telecommuting. There are many computer devices these days that allow us minimize business trips. Consider attending a video or telephone conference. If you have to attend in person, use public transportation when possible. For example, travelling by train is much better than taking a car or a plane (less emission per passenger)
