It’s getting HOT out there!
Okay, sorry for the late post. S and I are so busy with a lot of things in our personal lives. Especially with it being end of month and work typically starts coming first. I know for a fact that I was going to have my post ready last night, but due to all the unforeseen stresses at work, as soon as I got home I went right to bed. Seriously? Who goes to bed at 6PM?! I’m one step closer to being a Golden Girl.
Anywho, I will be posting the original entry later this evening for today, but I wanted to share this video for now. On Cinco de Mayo (May 5th for all you non Spanish speakers) my friend, Swetha, and I participated in an event to educate others on the rise of CO2 in our atmosphere.
I’m not sure if you know this about me, but from being raised in Austin I’m a natural hippie. I have been recycling since day one and learned since elementary school the importance of conserving water and energy. Even taking mass transportation was encouraged as riding the bus was only $0.25 if you were a student, $0.50 if you were not, and free on ozone alert days!
Yes, I am so serious.
However, my friend Swetha is even a bigger hippie than me and I love it! This woman has taught me more than a number of ways on how to conserve for our environment. She even has her own composter in her apartment.
Yes, a mini composter!
Swetha invited me to this event with her, and it was just a reminder about the dangers of trapped chemicals in our atmosphere. I know there are people out there that don’t believe in global warming (I’m not sure why they don’t believe that), but this is very real. There are MANY factors that contribute to global warming. This includes the increase of the human population, the industrial revolution, deforestation, burning of fossil fuels, and the increase of waste.
The video above was created on that day to teach people in the Dallas area the dangers of not changing our habits. The video is only 4 minutes long so take a moment to watch it. Swetha stars in it at the 1:38 point, and you can start hearing my voice at the 1:45 mark. I discuss the dangers of too much CO2 trapped in our atmosphere. Yes, I’m an uberdork. I know.
FYI: I’m wearing a hot pink F21 Racerback and Adidas yoga pants. The shirt was $3.80!
Let me know what you guys think of the video!
