One thing I’m facing is how to take care of myself when in such a new environment. I go through waves of doubt about everything. It’s in taking better care of myself that I hope these waves will break closer to shore.


Everything is wrapped in plastic at the supermarket. Individual vegetables and fruits, even. Crackers individual wrapped, and then grouped in a bigger plastic bag. Is this for freshness? Maybe why they need such a structured trash system is because there isso much waste to deal with. I'm not sure why I expected them to be way more sustainable in this way.
