    Final check-in! Wow, this month went so fast! And now we're almost to finals? Time passes weird on Zoom.

    I think keeping the "work-life balance" reminder around for everyone as we move into finals would be helpful :P!

    Wow, can't believe we only have 3 more days of eco challenge- where did April go?!  I guess time flies when you're being eco-friendly?

    I've started just habitually doing a quick "de-clutter" of my room as soon as I get out of bed in the morning- hopefully that habit will stick when I don't have a reminder! :P

    I can't believe the eco challenge is going to be over on Thursday! It doesn't feel like it's been that long yet.

    This eco challenge has been such a fun way to connect with everyone! Really looking forward to getting back on campus in the fall!

    Doing this eco challenge with family and friends makes it so much more fun (and perhaps more competitive? :P)! It's also been great to hear from other eco reps at our meetings about how their eco challenges are going!

    Yesterday, I finished my zoom classes to find my family had acquired a jungle of new plants waiting to be planted and piles of new organic soil. Loving the warmer weather!

    I'm so looking forward to next semester when we're all hopefully back on campus. I really want to get more involved with sustainability work at Dickinson, especially to get to see all my fellow Eco-Reps in person instead of on the computer! :P

    It's so nice to be reminded every day to be more mindful, especially as we get closer to finals!
