The Integrity of Sustainability

I’m not a huge follower of the meme craze. Pictures with a very unassociated caption are funny and all, but at the end of the day, I struggle to relate to a muppet wearing a black hood.┬áDespite my unpopular meme opinions, I cannot ignore the friends who constantly repost and comment on those witty-captioned images. And then this happened. If you’re anything like me, you … Continue reading The Integrity of Sustainability

Anorexia: My Victory

I thought I was going to blog about sustainable college dorm essentials this week, but something else is on my mind. The process of moving into college has been accompanied by a variety of emotions. Between searching for the familiar and tripping over the new, I find that failure, in the best and worse of ways, is inevitable. After weeks of wrestling with academics, health, … Continue reading Anorexia: My Victory

Coffee Coffee… Buzz Buzz Buzz

Confession: I have recently started to drink coffee. I know- I only started to drink coffee at eighteen years old, and am a complete novice to the entire concept of coffee. However, I find myself surrounded by several questions, thoughts, and situations of dependence on the subject. My relationship with coffee, or rather all things caffeinated, began on March 22nd of 2012. I got back … Continue reading Coffee Coffee… Buzz Buzz Buzz

Intro to College Sustainability

As a child, I would dream of university. The concept of a place devoted to learning, where everyone had books and bicycles and buildings were majestic, made me believe that there were at least several institutions where I would truly fit in. Now that I am here, I see that my childhood dreams left out a critical factor of the perfect college experience: sustainability. I … Continue reading Intro to College Sustainability

The Refined Sugar Experiment

Hi everyone! Summer is right around the corner, and it seems that everyone is talking about diets, exercise, and the beach. You know that’s not how Adventurously Organic rolls though. Sustainability, as a “diet,” is completely different from “dieting.” That being said, recently, a huge change happened in how my diet reflected sustainability. I think that more than a couple of times, I have mentioned … Continue reading The Refined Sugar Experiment

Sustainability in Westchester: Composting

Last year, I began volunteering at a local urban farm. When I started, I thought I knew everything about the history of the environmental movement. However, on my first day, I learned more about the roots of environmentalism in the first five minutes of volunteering than I learned reading phony environmentalist articles from my poorly matched Facebook feed. It turns out that America’s modern environmentalist … Continue reading Sustainability in Westchester: Composting

Recipe: Berry Chia Coconut Yogurt Bowl

My high school has a program called Senior Options, where students work at an internship during their final two months instead of sitting in class. Silly me chose an internship that is an hour and a half away, and as a result, portable breakfasts have become necessary. There is always a degree of tediousness associated with to-go meal prep. Having to leave my house at … Continue reading Recipe: Berry Chia Coconut Yogurt Bowl

Absenteeism: Let me be Honest

Remember two months ago, when I posted only twice in March? I explained how the dearth of posts was an accident and would not happen again. Clearly I was mistaken. I do not write this post to legitimize my absenteeism. Rather, I seek to explore what causes us to check out. As you all probably know, I am in my senior year of high school, … Continue reading Absenteeism: Let me be Honest
