Why did I take this weird picture? Find out here.
-I don't mind the word "moist." I actually find it to be quite accurate most of the time.
-I am becoming more and more like my mother every day, and find myself more and more willing to admit that.
-My job working at Disneyland has caused me to be quite averse to ever going back to a Disneyland theme park.
-I grew up right next to the beach, but I don't like going to the beach.
-I prefer to wear socks when I sleep, which makes the summertime really uncomfortable for me.
-I worked at Subway from ages 16-18 and since then have claimed sandwiches as my favorite food. HOWEVER. For the last 6 months or so I've been craving crispy beef tacos over sandwiches and I think my new favorite food is tacos. I feel like a total traitor to my beloved sandwiches. But I mean, have you HAD a Del Taco before???
-Laundry is my least favorite chore.
-When I was young I always had a stack of books ready to read. When I'd get in trouble my punishment would be "You're not allowed to go to the library for two days." But now? I haven't read a full book in about a year. I'm ashamed.
-Only two members of my immediate family know that I have a blog. I've kept it a secret from everybody else for over 4 years.
-I have an addiction to candy. When I was little I would ask my mom to take me to the drugstore so I could get deodorant, shampoo, etc., but I would always buy a big pile of candy (to eat while I read that big stack of books). My mom always waited for me in the car and never questioned me when I said, "They didn't have the deodorant I wanted." I literally just told her about this deception a couple of nights ago and she was shocked. Then I felt guilty for lying 20 years ago.

-Did you know it's possible to cool yourself down by simply changing your clothes instead of just automatically reaching to turn the a/c on?
-Did you know that washing your clothes in cold water saves energy and will likely keep your clothes from shrinking?
2, Speaking of lights, changing your light bulbs to energy efficient LED bulbs will save energy and save you money! Since LED bulbs can last up to 25 times longer than regular bulbs, you won't need to replace them as often!
3. Unplug. If you're like me, you tend to leave your cell phone charger plugged in when you're not using it. Well, did you know that's still using energy? Other things that use energy when they're plugged in but not being used are: microwaves, toasters, computers, and curling irons (which should DEFINITELY always be unplugged because of the risk of fires). Just a quick unplugging of these appliances can save you (and California!) so much in the long run!
4. Stay cool, naturally. I love being cold, so the idea of an air conditioner is very appealing to me. However, it's not a good idea for the environment. During the hot summer months I try to wear shorts and tank tops and open the windows and use a box or ceiling fan to cool down instead of turning on the a/c.
5. Don't use all the hot water. You can wash your clothes on the cold setting so you use less energy with your washing machine! And those lengthy hot showers you take while you're contemplating how you're going to solve world hunger? Stop! Give yourself 5 minutes, or two songs on your iPod to keep the hot water on, then turn it cool, or be done in the shower!
Join me in committing to making one small change in your daily life in order to save more energy, and #LetsGetCharged.
