Today was a getting-ready-for-college day! I did some last-minute dorm shopping, packed, and updated my blog layout - what do you think? I like the word "hippie," and I love that font, so I figured I'd give it a try as a header. Interestingly enough, the little rug I bought for my dorm room today is the same color as the blog is now.
I also found a cool article on how to go green in dorm rooms. Of course, a lot of the ideas they had would have been better read before I did all my shopping - for example, buying used and organic.
On the other hand, a lot of the things they suggested were things I was already doing: Reusing things I already had, buying used books or renting textbooks, using a reusable water bottle instead of disposable plastic ones, and keeping plants in the dorm room instead of using air fresheners. So I suppose when it comes to green dorm rooms so far I've more or less broken even: Nothing super-impressive, but nothing awful, either.
