These days, bottling companies proudly state, “Now made with 50% less plastic.” While that’s great for nature, the laws of nature state that all other things being equal, you can’t keep the same quality with less material. Up until recently, I kept a spare bottle of water in my backpack, and while these bottles were now “squishy,” I didn’t expect them to spring a leak. But they did. So now I have a soggy Spanish textbook, and for the same reason books are hard to burn, they are also hard to dry. But if it’s any consolation, you can now crush a bottle with your bare hands. Quite satisfying, actually.

Now that it’s junior year, with more homework translating into more time on our asses, and no more mandatory PE to counteract this effect, many of us are going to put on the pounds. I tried to make it a goal to do a set of curl-ups and push-ups before going to sleep every night, but like New Year resolutions, they turn out hard to keep. What’s interesting about this goal is that I’m not scared of the work I need to do, or the sweat I’ll break. It’s the time. Doing ten is a piece of cake. Twenty is okay. As you go up, however, it seems to take exponentially longer and longer. Doing forty is an eternity. I can take the pain of doing a thousand, but I’m loathe to take the time. Pain is fleeting, but time even more so.

    haha… ouch…

    well.. you can use less material and get WAY better quality…

    just go buy the big plastic bottles… or the metal ones…

    they are refillable and you wont need to worry about leaking…

    in fact, my cap has been broken for over a year already and it has never leaked…

    haha… it’s funny how you want to keep your weight… you are already skinny enough… better to have a good immune system…
