Week 2 - Journal Ecological Footprint Update and Course Reflections I have had small success in implementing my changes thus far. For example, I typically must drive about 30 minutes to pick up my child from her father’s house every Sunday. This past Sunday, my son was around where his father lives and offered to bring my daughter to me. My daughter did not want to ride with her brother, but I told her she had to because it was wasteful for me to drive to pick her up while her brother was coming right by my house. I also have saved about half a trash can full of cans and about one fourth of a can full of plastic to be recycled. I am having to remind the kids to place the trash that can be recycled into the correct bins, but it is getting better. My garden is coming along nicely. I have weeded and added the must need fertilizer to support healthy plant growth. After completing my labs for week two, I discovered that my garden soil was missing

This is the second time I have dug through the trash for this class. I plan not to do it again. After completing week two, I believe that the rest of this course will be fun. The unknown what lies ahead in a new class is gone and I am excited to finish my labs and report back my findings....

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
