Work, wine and the Qing Dynasty

Hey lazy green peeps! Apologies for the radio silence recently, but despite intending to start 2015 with a structured and eclectic approach to blogging, I have underestimated a very important thing….life!! The day job has been hectic and my lack of Uni work over Christmas has left me with piles to catch up on the last few weeks (including a rather uninspiring comparative essay on the Qing dynasty) Believe me, I’d rather be here with you guys right now!

So, no new discoveries on the lazy green front from me recently, I’ve simply been trying to stick to as many of my good habits  as possible without reaching for the wine every  few minutes….

That said, one positive thing I have adopted so far this year (without even trying) is to not feel overwhelmed by real, or perceived, obligations. Whether it’s because I’m letting it all grow with the flow, or I’m just getting older and even lazier; I’m finding it easier to give myself a break and saying “Bah, I’ll do later”. Whilst this is incredibly liberating, however, I’m fully aware that later will have to come one day, and all those “fascinating” ideas I have for blogs are piling up to a big old pile of nothing!

Maybe in a small way this is why we have gotten ourselves into a bit of an environmental pickle in the first place? Too many “I’ll worry about it later” and not enough “Lets get this sorted now before it gets too out of hand”. So with this in mind, I better get on and write this darn essay about the Chinese mandate of heaven and how it helped to maintain an Empire. Maybe I’ll even learn a thing or two about how to juggle life when faced with such a diverse and changing number of responsibilities, because I have to admit right now I do have that glass of wine in hand….

Zero Waste Week: Less than 2 weeks to go!

Over the last 5 months – as I’ve attempted to live greener without changing my whole lifestyle drastically – I have learnt a lot along the way. From shopping short cuts and lazy vegan recipes, to informative research on the issues our world currently faces; I have shared my experience and ideas with all you lovely people!

But one thing I have yet to conquer is my battle with waste; something which fills me with dread every time I’m faced with yet another statistic about the pollution caused by our own consumerist habits. I have shared a few waste reduction ideas over the last few months, but food waste is still high on my agenda, so I have taken the pledge to be involved in this year’s Zero Waste Week; in a bid to kick start this battle with the bin!
