Hey all, these are great posts! But try and continue them on the Blog that is on the top of my profile:
Two Dollar Challenge Blog for FRCC Students in Jaren Seid's Principles of Micro and Macro Economics.
Well, this is my first post on the blog so far during the challenge. I chose to fast for this as long as I could, taking into accound i might have to save up money to buy food in bulk, maybe not having enough for food every day. I am on day three of the challenge and I find my mind paying more attention to my stomach than anything else. Day to day activites feel like more than a chore. My mood is also effected by the condition of my hunger. I get irritable over simple things throughout the day that I would normally brush off. However, I have been drinking a lot of water, God bless America. I am so lucky that I can drink clean water out of nearly every public building in the state. No matter how my day is effected by this challange, I can only smile at the fact that day to day life is far more enjoyable. I think I might indulge in a nice bag of rice tomorrow.
To Tom and Stephan, I think it is really cool how you are raising awareness of this at work and school, I think I will do the same when I go to work tomorrow, which will be terrible because it is a restaurant and that will just make me even more starving!
I dont know how people can live off eating just about the same thing for every meal. I woke up late today and had two bags of ramen, one for lunch and one for dinner, I'm super hungry and even though i like top ramen I am already sick of it. I havent spent any money yet but I think tomorrow I just might have to spend the two dollars and get something else to eat.
the 3rd day has been very successful, as i was walking to class today at about 11am there was a band playing and all sorts of little events going on at front range. I was thinking of just going to the grocery store after class again, but i saw that they were giving free food out for earth day! i got a pork sandwhich, chips, and beans. This was amazing that i came across this leaving my class. This food was really good and filled my stomach, but i knew it wouldnt hold me off all day so i went to the grocery store and got more ramen for 2 dollars. There is 2 days left and i have 4 dollars. I'm wondering what am i going to buy next? I think im set for day 3 but i cant tell you how bad its gonna be for day 4. Lets just see what happens.
