    with the current situation, it's unsafe to carpool with people that are not in your bubble. but luckily, I get to have a ride from my classmate to go to the hospital for stage (clinical). it was a really fun ride!

    Protecting wetland is critically important for many reasons.              Firstly, wetlands are one of the most diverse and rich ecosystem on the planet. Due to their dual terrestrial and aquatic nature, they host and support diverse biological communities. These ecosystems act as hubs of life and species diversity. As a result, wetlands posses...

    it benefits me personally because I love gardening. at the same time, it can reduce my carbon footprint by eating food that I can access without transportation with carbon emissions. in addition, photosynthesis also contributes to the reduction of CO2.

    my parents always say that I have a bigger eye and a smaller stomach. I find that using smaller plates really fix that problem. I don't have to overstuff myself and not feeling good after the meal. I can protect my GI system by decrease its unnecessary workload.

    what I can do is select food that doesn't need to be skinned.  or the food that doesn't require certain parts to be removed (potato, tomato, apple). in fact, many fruits or veggies' skin contains a lot of nutrition so leaving them on can benefit the person consuming it.

    what I can do is limit my family's waste of water. there are many simple strategies such as wash your veggies in a big bowl instead of rinsing it with water for a long time, and reuse that water if not dirty; use less plates to save water from dishwashing; take the time to close the faucet when applying soap while washing your hands...
